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 this problem too -it is rather common if you search the web. There was a suggestion posted on this site about what to do. See http://www.fixya.com/support/t125253-mixer_leaking_oil I have also read about other people taking it to a Kitchen Aid repair place where they repacked the grease for about $45. I took mine apart and there is gobs of grease around the gears. Right now I am still trying to figure out what to do. I am going to have my father look at it to see what he thinks since he is good with motors. The Kitchen Aid web site says that the grease is FDA approved, so at least it's not going to kill you if a little gets in your food. Their suggestion is to take it out and run it for about 5 minutes at least once a week. They say it leaks if it is not used often enough. That logic doesn't make much sense to me, but you could try it. Mine seems to leak more when I run it because the grease heats up and liquifies more. I hope that helps. I'll let you know what happens with mine, once it's fixed. Lisa

SOURCE: Kitchen aid mixer, voltage issue

Why not just buy a power converter for the mixer and other electronics on Amazon. They are cheap and can be adjusted for
110 - 240 and can be used anywhere in the world.

SOURCE: leaking oil from kitchen aid mixer ksm150ps

Hi, BRIANMICHELL ? How much oil are we talking about, and over what period? How old is your machine? Your KA mixer?s internal gears are factory packed with enough grease to last a lifetime, whatever that means. Depending on the age of your mixer, where it was stored (warm temps possibly?) and how long it's been idle and/or how heavily it?s been used; these factors all will eventually cause the lubricant grease to separate into its base oil from its additives, with the resultant oil seeping from openings beyond the gasket down the agitator shaft. Gravity can be very insidious. The inspection and troubleshooting of the inside of your mixer is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website. Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case, try KSM150PS, and select one of the files listed under Parts List (check to see it this matches your mixer model). Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled ?Case, Gearing and Planetary Unit?, which provides and exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. For starters you may want to order parts #15, transmission gasket, and # 16, O-ring, along with some food-grade grease. Also, while you?re inside the guts of your mixer you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. It can be messy but gratifying. As far as parts go, here are four potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com. Prices for the same part can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping. Finally, here's a link to an excellent site that details the disassembly and replacement of a mixer's grease, which might be helpful, too. http://www.foodonthefood.com/food_on_the_food/2009/04/how-to-repair-a-kitchenaid-mixer-yourself.html Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA If this solution has helped you, please rate it, thanks! - hslincoln

Tripped circuit & heard pop on KA Artisan Mixer #RRK150 while using pasta press attachment. Now doesn't run. Fixable OR replace?


probably fixable. The load of the pasta press may have blown an internal fuse or overheat thermostat, taking the breaker with it. Open it up and take a look.

Mixer won't start after mixing dough.


There is a good chance you burned up the electrical Connectors to the motor or you have have blown the FUSE that is located inside the housing. The Motor has a Self Shut Off when it overheats but if you have over taxed the motor more than once, then there is a good change you need to repair/replace it with something that can handle harder work. My sister got a Mix Master the same time I got my Kitchen Aid, My Kitchen Aid is running strong since 2003 and her Mix Master died in 2005 and I bought her a Kitchen Aid. Sorry but I am not fond of the Sunbeam Mixer's.... Quality has gone down hill over the years to keep their prices low.

What kind of grease can be used on a stand mixer after replacing a stripped worm gear? model:K45SS


Food grade grease is what Kitchen Aid put into the gearbox originally. They do supply it as a spare part if you cannot find it as a non Kitchen Aid part.

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.
