You need a Step Down Voltage Converter (also called a Voltage Transformer)
which steps down 240, 230, 220 volts to 110 volts and
allows you to use 110 volts Devices from USA in 220 v / 230 v / 240 v Countries

Just bought kitchen aid prof 600 110v and i need a new transformer to 220v since my old one was busted using this appliance. What kind of transformer will i buy? Heavy duty ? Any spec? Thanks


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.

Where can I fix a circuit board in Spain or UK


I'm sorry but that sounds like a total loss. International power stanarf is 220v but US is only 120v. Likely all electronic circuitry is burned out. It would be cheaper to get it replaced since the board, motors and anything else electric will need to be replaced. Next tome get an international adapter that dials down 220v to 120v if you order anything else from US.

What is the voltage required to run rival hand mixer?


This plugs into a standard 120v household outlet, it's only 150 watts, running 10 of these is like one hair dryer. Most products say 110v, 115v in the USA.

The actual voltage is around 120v at the breaker panel and around 118v at the outlet.

But all products marked 110v, 115, 117, all work on a standard outlet.

Is it perfectly safe to use a transformer for 120V/60Hz products? Kitchenaid mixers are way cheaper abroad...for a 220V/60Hz using country,this poses a big issue for me...with all the talks about hazards...


Short answer- no problem, but please read on...

First, economics are an issue- there is more than one way to convert VOLTAGE, the ;best' in this case is by using a heavy coil-wound TRANSFORMER (not simply a device being called a transformer or 'converter'; terms often misused) but virtually NO means of converting FREQUENCY (60Hz USA vs 50Hz Eu)
Extended use at wrong frequency has been known, by personal experience, to cause overheat and premature failure of many devices.
Heat is an issue for a hidden reason in the classic models due to their 'mechanical fuse' which is designed to limit serious damage in event of overload (too thick batter mixed for too long)- the device will yield at lighter work-load as the moter heats to greater levels- it is prudent to be always aware of the 'running temperature'.
There are subtle differences in the motor winding design, and you may find difficulty finding repair parts for any relatively minor electrical issues (mechanicals are the same in classic models)

If you have talent for house wiring better to use seperate 220 line, as if for a dryer or electric stove- its more efficient overall.
If you have 60Hz 220 V mixer, (most are 50Hz 'tuned' at 220Volts) a step-up transformer to bring your US 60Hz current UP to 220 volts to suit your mixer will not harm your mixer if it supplys sufficient Amps or Wattage (you likely must convert; Volts multiplied by Amps gives Watts)... But you can easily pay out near half the cost of a mixer to get a quality transformer into your kitchen and still, it remains a weak-link; you can only get quality if you pay for it...
...but the 220V outlet permits use of commercial appliances with all the durability, convenience, and prestiege they afford.

Artesian models with 'soft start' and inverter-technology speed control use much more electronics to feed the motor- they should be supplied as close to true sine-wave power for the same reasons as computer UPS battery back-ups.

In general, and by experience, its best overall to buy the appliance designed for use in the location required. If you feed the appliance the power it was designed to use it has no way of knowing how it got there. The question mark is with the output of the power conversion device.

Ibought a hobart n 50 mixer took it oversaes used a 700 watt step down transformer to work it but after a few minutes it over heats is there a certain trans former to be used for it thank you


Assuming the mixer is overheating (and not the transformer), first check (with a multimeter) the voltage being supplied to the mixer from the transformer and ensure it is near 120V. Next, do you know the powerline frequency in the country you're in? The mixer (assuming it came from US) was designed for 60Hz US power. Many other countries use 50Hz, which could cause overheating if the mixer is used heavily. When 60Hz equipment is used on 50Hz power, it normally must be "derated" meaning it must be "underworked" as compared to its original capabilities.

Be sure to test the voltage going to the mixer, from the transformer, not only when the mixer is off, but be certain to test it in use, mixing whatever it is you are mixing -bottom line is to be sure the transformer continues to output 120V under load, with the mixer loading the transformer.

If all is OK with the power going to the mixer, then the problem is either in the mixer or the problem is how it is being used. What are you mixing with it - are you overworking the mixer? Does the mixer always overheat or only with particularly demanding jobs (cut down batch size in this case). What gear are you mixing in? If overheating in second gear, try mixing the same batch in first gear. If you have or can find a user's manual, it probably gives reccommended batch sizes for various typical products you might mix, be sure to follow these recommendations and "derate" for 50Hz if necessary.

It's possible the motor is weak from a long life spent working hard. A weak motor will draw excessive current and overheat. Where is the mixer hottest? The front at the gearbox/transmission or the rear where the motor is located? Maybe the transmission is lacking lubracation and needs a grease change. There a many possibilities for your mixer to overheat, and I hope this helps.

I've the 325 watts its 110V kitchen aid and I


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.

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!

Will a Kitchenaid Pro 500 work in a foreign country with trans.?


Hi, This is not normally a difficult question. Normally the answer would be - Yes no problem. I have taken every kind of appliance overseas. But this particular model has an electronic speed control and finding out the exact details of the electronic clocking is a problem. My best guess is that it will work just fine but at a slightly slower speed like any other 60Hz appliance. Oh and by the way you're gonna need a pretty big transformer this thing pulls 325 watts so you should go to at least a 400 watt transformer for doughs and heavy batter. The thing you could do to find other folks experience is to go to the kitchenaid forum or military wifes forum online and ask if anybody has taken one of these overseas. Good Luck!

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.
