HI.When the stand mixer produces a popping sound during mixing this problem has something to do with the motor.Motor has bossing on it.This might not be lubricated well and eventually lossen up.That's why it produces a popping sound.And with regard to the burnt smell might be on the coil of the motor's rotor or armature.Is the unit still functioning eventhough you smeeell burnt wire?Thank you for choosing FIXYA..

Can't refer you to a dealer there but it is likely that only the motor's brushes need to be replaced. This isn't a difficult DIY job and the brushes shouldn't cost more than ~ $20 US.
You could also remove the housing covering the motor and see if the commutator is visible. This is a segmented copper cylinder and shouldn't be completely blackened although some signs of black is normal. The brushes ride on this cylinder and if the brushes have become too short, it can cause arcing and smoke. Clean that surface before installing new brushes and they too may smoke and cause rough running until they are worn in. The brushes can be had many places so you will have to choose one convenient to you:

I had the same problem. Had to strip the machine down to get to the motor. On the top is a moving plate with various capacitors etc mounted. On the front side there was a Capacitor (At least I think it was) with the wire broken.
I resoldered it and the machine now works fine.

I hope this helps

There are not any new parts from Kenwood to A700 series, try to find it on internet or if anyone in the forum has one.

I hope you didn't buy a new one, ours stopped last week after 25 years. All that was needed were new brushes for the motor. Anyone with a screwdriver could replace them. 4Kenwood had the parts to me in a couple of days.

There is a Triac that controls the speed. It is probably short circuit. A qualified Electronics engineer with mechanical skills can repair it. Probably a BT139-600.

Need to take a 2x4 balance it between the outlet for the grass and maybe a pair of vise scrips and then try to take it off.

Sounds as if the amplifier is overheating? Does it do this at all volume levels or only when turned up to higher levels- if so it's likely the amplifier inside of the receiver.
