You need one that can deliver not only the correct voltage but sufficient current to operate fully when under load. Check the current requirement on the sticker under the base, it will give operating voltage and watts. Purchase a transformer that matches the voltage and exceeds the watts by at least 30% so that the transformer is not operating at full capacity when under load. It will not matter if the transformer exceeds the watts by 100% or more but they do get bigger and heavier as the wattage goes up.

SOURCE: kitchen aid 110v 450watt, I want to convert to 220v

Hi guys,

The only available Kitchen Aid stand mixers on the European markets are the Kitchen Aid Classic and the Kitchen Aid Artisan.

The best way is to contact a Kitchen Aid service center / repair facility in your area.
Here is the European website of Kitchen Aid: http://www.kitchenaid.eu/eu_EU/ka/ka_europe.htm

If you bought a different Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer (like the Professional series) you probably won't find the required parts to convert it to a European model. The only way would be to use a voltage converter.

I hope this helps.

The beater is held in place by a pin and spring arrangement. Lift and twist the beater. If that doesn't work, the pin is trying to come out...and is wedging against the beater. Tap the pin back in a bit, and the beater should release.

I can not respond to the warranty issues. My kitchen aid mixer is past warranty as well. I live in a country that uses 220V and my kitchen aid mixer is 110V. I have been using my kitchen aid mixer for almost 4 years with no problems at all.

The converter boxes are supposed to blow the fuse on the converter before it reaches your appliance and cause any problems.

If you purchase a 220V kitchen aid (although it would cost more money) it would probably have more power because of the higher voltage.

Hope this helps!

You will need a 'step-down' transformer with a rating of at least 500 watts (~500 VA), a primary designed for 220 Volts and a secondary rated at 110-115 Volts. This type will have four terminals or leads and isolates the input from the output.
There is a non-isolating type called an 'autotransformer' which has one winding with a tap (total of three terminals) roughly in the middle. I use this type for certain devices but it is not as safe as the first-described type.
If you are living in a foreign country that uses the ~220 Volt standard, you can sometimes get one on 'semipermanent' loan from the local utility.

My Kitchen Aid Aritsan was a gift bought in the US. We live in Zambia/Africa (using 240v electricity). One day there was a loud pop at the plug and a slight smokey smell. Its never worked since


I will assume that you were not using a step-down transformer (240 to 120 volts).

So what may have happened?

1. The phase board burned out.
2. The stator burned out.
3. The armature burned out.
4. The line cord and/or plug failed.

It could be one, all, or any combination of these things.

A solution is to simply convert the mixer to 240 volts. This can be done by replacing all four items above with the 240 volt versions.

If I were doing this here in the U.S., Ebay would be my source for the parts.

You can find a Service Manual which covers your model (even though it may net say so) and shows how it comes apart at:
