It will run fine without the filter if you choose to bypass it. If your 110 volt filter is not up to handling the 230 volts the filter will only go bang and smoke it won't harm anything else. I have looked at the capacitors on a 230 volt filter and they are 250v - 275v so just read what's on your 110v filter. What you need to change is the armature, the fields and the small phase board under the back cover..

    Hi Ross, I got the complete conversion kit and swapped out the armature, the fields, small phase board. I also added the RFI but cant really see where it will fit snuggly so have checked that it works with the back cover off and the RFI just hanging on by its wires.
    I have 2 issues now.
    1. I can't tell where the 220/240 RFI sits snuggly into the machine so I can put the cover back on....and
    2. It is impossible to tune for RPM's. The amount of screw turning is so small that even touching the screws can be the difference between the motor turning at 60 rpm or even faster or not turning at all.
    Do you have any suggestion to either of these issues please ?

    Hi Glen
    It will run fine without the RFI, I did one yesterday.
    The RFI fits to the bottom gear casing with the terminals for the wires to plug into at the front and insulation between the RFI and the metal housing. Make certain that the wire terminals are insulated to prevent them touching the body, yours will not be factory insulated as your cable was supposed to go directly to the control plate.
    The top screws on the control plate are for controlling the speed, the bottom one sorts out the start position and speed 2. I start the top ones at both 8 turns in from fully not in the hole at all and the adjustment will be in and out from there equally on both sides. The bottom one only sets the start position and speed 2. Any more questions you can email me directly at screaming_skull@hotmail.com

    Cheers Ross

DO NOT DO IT. The Hz will destroy the morotr. The transofrmer only converts the voltage. You are better off buying a 220V version.

Kitchenaid mixers are not recommended on the use of a converter as they are not tested under such conditions. Understanding this, using a convertor on your mixer may automatically void the 1 year warranty regardless of age.

There are international Kitchenaid dealers available if you are requiring 110V. You may contacted Kitchenaid Customer Service for more information.

Their toll-free telephone number is 1-800-541-6390.

SOURCE: do th gears in a kitchenaid mixer need oil

Hi SHIRLAFINK, you do not need to 'oil' the transmission gears on a KA mixer. Your KA mixer comes with enough grease to 'last a lifetime' - whatever that means?

Depending on the age of your mixer and how heavily you use it, there may be a time when you might want to replace the grease, but that period is usually measured in years of useage.

Of course if one of the gears strips or breaks, you will need to replace all the grease when you replace the broken gear. Attempting to use salvaged grease jeopardized the remaining gears if pieces of metal or plastic debris are suspended in the old grease.

I hope this helps - hslincoln, Burke, VA

SOURCE: seating the brushes on the Kitchenaid ksm90 mixer

You don't need to seat the brushes. Remove the brush caps and pull the brushes out by their springs, being VERY careful to note the position of them since they only go back in one way. Measure the free length of the spring before pulling it out. It is critical that you write down the length sticking out with very slight pressure on it so that it is seated against the armature when you measure.

Clean the curved surface of the carbon brushes with a sharp knife being careful not to scratch the curved surface. If you have them installed wrong they will not go all the way in and will not contact the armature and it will not run. Measure the length, as done above, of the spring to make sure it is in correctly!! If it is not in correctly the spring will stick out 1/4 inch longer than it should.

Professional 600. What is the specific transformer required to step down 220v to 110v?


Check the wattage on your mixer and buy a step down transformer capable of delivering at least 50% more wattage so it is not struggling under load. If it is capable of even more it won't matter but they get bigger and heavier and cost more the bigger you go.

325watts of 110v transform to 220v is how much watts


New armature, new field assembly and new phase board will probably be a similar price to a step up transformer and a far better solution.

Kitchen aid stand mixer bought in US, moving to Europe, 220v 50hz


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!

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.
