    110v 60hz juicer having series motor burned. want to rewind it for 220v 50hz. what turns ratio should i use?

    I have the same problem- a professional series KitchenAid. Although, I don't mind a large converter hanging around- but I am worried about the frequency issue. Is there anyway to deal with it- as I need a large mixer for my business.

    Get another one and hook the power cords together in series and always use two, or hook a 120V toaster in series with the mixer :)

  • Ivar Arason May 24, 2013

    Get another 120V mixer or a 120V toaster and connect the power cords in series and you are set :)

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.

    Another thing I like to mention:

    The Kitchen Aid runs at 110V/60Hz, the European voltage is 230/50Hz. The voltage converter would be able to drop the output voltage from 230V to 110V but the frequency 50Hz will still be the same. The Kitchen Aid motor is designed for 60Hz. The lower frequency could eventually overheat and damage the motor.

    It depends if the motor is or not asynchrone

Hey everyone... I just did a successful conversion from kitchenaid 120v to 220v. All you need are three items: the 220 V armature (spinning part of the motor), the 220V field (stationary part of the motor) and a new phase control board. This will only work with certain mixers listed in the links provided. I used goodmans to source the parts and the manual to change everything out! You can change the plug as well but I just used a standard us to uk adapter. As well, EU regs require an RFI filter... I figured I would just not include that part : ) http://www.kitchenaidparts.eu/documents/pdf/service-manual/classic-svc-manual-new-email-version.pdf KitchenAid mixer electronics electrical components at Goodman

    Thanks for the help, tips and reply I wish you could just add pictures of the parts, may be a links to the parts one by one, there are only 3 as you mentioned. possibly a youtube tutorial. As the names are not exactly same, for example field part of the motor, there is no field motor with 220v , there is one with 240v and I am not sure if that is the correct part, if not I don't want to say bye to my brand new mixer.Seeing is believing.People may not find enough courage to do it without being sure about the right parts

I need a replacement motor on a KitchenAid Professional HD Stand Mixer (Model KG25H7XSL).


The loud pop was probably the soft start circuit board on the motor. You can buy this board at repair sites or Ebay. And yes, they make 220V versions of this mixer.

The voltage in US is 110-120 volts and the amperage is 60 amps. In your country the voltage is 250 volts which appears to be high as the general voltage in Asian countries 220 volts and the current is 50 amps You have to use a transformer/adopter which can reduce the voltage from 250 to 220 Or it is a universal adopter where this aspect is covered up. In that case you have to check the amperage. 300 watt is the power consumed and has nothing to do with low/high voltage.

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

Bosch universal mixer 800W. How do I change a 110 volt to a 220 volt? Is it possible?


Bosch is not very good about putting manuals or other documentation online for older products, so I'll have to give you generic advice.

Some electric motors have optional voltage connections. If your motor has this feature, there will be a box or removable plate on the motor with 110 Volt and 220 Volt connections inside. You would need to replace the line cord with a 220 Volt cord having the correct plug for the location you plan to use the mixer, and connect the motor "hot" wire to the 220 V connection in the motor junction box instead of the 110 V connection (the neutral wire goes to the same neutral).

If there is no such option available on the motor, you would also have to replace the motor with a 220 Volt version. Check the labeling on the speed control (inside the mixer) to be sure it is rated for 240 VAC, and check the power label by the power cord. If the label gives a single range of input voltages spanning both 110 VAC and 220 VAC (e.g., "Input 97 V- 265 V") then you only need to change the plug. Unless the electrical parts are all rated for 240 VAC or higher, conversion is not safe.

Some products (especially desktop computers) have a recessed switch on the back that lets you select either 115 VAC or 230 VAC input power. If you have this on the mixer, all you have to do is use a small tool to push it to the other position.

An alternative is to get a 230 VAC - 115 VAC transformer or inverter rated for at least 800 Volt-Amps and wire it with a 230 Volt plug on the primary side and a 115 Volt socket on the secondary side; then you can just plug in your unmodified mixer to this. If you cannot find a box like this, you can buy a "control transformer" from an industrial equipment supplier and put it in a suitable metal box. I recommend including a power switch and a 4 Amp dual-element fuse or breaker on the primary side circuit; you don't want somebody burning up the transformer with a 1200 Watt microwave oven or griddle.

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!
