As everyone know that we cannot use in Europe the kitchen aid mixer sold in the US because of the voltage. In the US, it's 110 volts-60 Hz, in Europe it's 220 volts 50/60 Hz. The adaptor is not recommanded.In this case, I want to buy here in the US the mixer kitchen aid professional 600, I will remove the 110 volts motor and will place a new motor 220 volts to make it working in Europe. Is that possible? Any internet link where we can buy all the electric components 220 volts compatibles?I am concerned because many companies over the web are charging a lot (two times) for the US equivalent kitchen aid mixer just because it's working with different voltage 220 volts.Thank you

This is a kitchen aid. BUT!!!! it is an international model that was sold in countries with 220 volts. Look underneath the mixer for a white tag it should have a model number and a serial number, if you can get us those numbers then we can help with the parts. Hope this helps.
Unfortunately this model is not sold here so my advice can only be general advice. Over voltage will normally blow a PCB before the fuse has a chance to blow so you should be investigating that part first before looking for a fuse it may not have. It is only going to be fixed by an appliance repair technician, preferably one authorised by Kitchen Aid. As a rule I would not expect the PCB to be repairable after double over voltage. It is probably going to need for it to be replaced. Now is probably a good time to enquire with your Kitchen Aid repairman to see if conversion to your UK voltage is economic or possible as money is going to have to be spent anyway.
I have had my Kitchen Aid since 2003 and never had this problem. If this has happened to you more than once, I would call Kitchen Aid and explain the issue to them. My sister had an Issue with her new Kitchen Aid and they had her bring it for service and they replaced it with a NEW mixer. Kitchen Aid is very good with brand accountability.
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.
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.
its possible that you got a lemon off the factory line or they forgot to put grease into the transmission case.is there a warranty on it?if so take it back.i work for hobart which sold kitchen aid some years ago,if that mixer is less than a year old as stated,take it back or verbally speak to a kitchen aid rep. and tell them your situation.i really belive you should be able to get a replacement as long as you havent overloaded the unit or caused damage.let me know.
