    Bump, this thread has just helped me find what I needed so I thought others might not have come across this thread yet. It's really good

    Hello

    Through the wonder of freecycle, I have recently acquired my first ever sewing machine - a PFAFF 1027 sewing machine. I am a complete novice and have never owned or used a machine before but I am keen to learn.

    Trouble is, I don't know where to start - ideally I could do with a manual for my machine.

    I have searched the internet high and low but it seems a manual is nowhere to be found. I've also emailed PFAFF themselves to ask for some assistance but they say the manual is obsolete.

    I have found a manual on ebay but it is in the US - $21.99 plus $19 approx for P+P - not the money saving start I had in mind! :eek:

    Anyboday got any ideas how I can learn how to use this machine?

    TIA

    This looks promising, a free download, though compressed in .rar format, not .zip, so you'll need to download a prog to uncompress it.

    But it might be worth a look.

    Can I please revive this to ask if anyone has a link or manual on how to service an A701?
    Mine is working fine but is very noisy & dances about when making bread - I have to stand there with one hand on it to stop it walking off the worksurface lol - not fun when making pasta the other day - boy does that take some kneading -granted 'babysitting' the kenwood was easier than the traditional way tho:rotfl:
    I think it just needs a bit of TLC & I'm sure I've seen something similar here but I just cant find it

    (bet Squeaky finds it in 2 seconds flat lol)
    I THINK is a whole sentence, not a replacement for I Know

    There is a manual here, but it doesn't really go into servicing beyond cleaning.
    http://www.kenwoodservice.co.uk/instructions/A701instructions.htm

    In my experience jumping about the work surface is caused by the stuff being mixed not being evenly distributed around the bowl. If mine starts dancing when mixing a bread dough I stop it, lift the head and break the mixture up with a spatula. It sometimes takes 2 or 3 goes, though.

    Other thoughts
    1. Are you overloading it?
    2. How are the feet? The ones on the 701 that I got second hand were all flattened and broken. I bought some new ones through eBay and matters improved considerably. If you are using it with broken feet the dancing around may actually be scratching your worktop.

    Hi Psykicpup,

    You aren't alone: My Kenwood Chef is trying to run away!

    If you have a look through The Complete Kenwood Chef Collection there are some references to people servicing their kenwood chefs but the only link to a service manual for the A701 that I could find, is now obsolete I'm afraid.

    She did :rotfl:

    had a look through there first but didnt find anything useful really but Pink found me a link to others who have to babysit too - so a bit relieved now anyway
    Something makes me think it was a thread where people were boasting/comparing their Kenwoods if that rings any bells for anyone. There were other links to show the differences in models too if I remember rightly.......


    Addiscomber - I will check the feet - hadnt thought of that - thanks

    Hi

    I have a Magimix Compact 3 Automatic 100 Multi Cuve that DH bought me back in 2003 and I never used (was in my 20's then with no kids, now early 30's with 2 in tow and with a serious need of batch cooking to save money...).

    Does anyone have the manual for this, or know where I could get one?

    Many thanks in advance.
