DO NOT USE THE MIXER UNTIL YOU MAKE PROPER REPAIRS!

You can buy a replacement plug at a home center to replace the damaged one with.
Make certain if the old plug is polarized (one blade slightly longer or wider, depending on how you look at it, than the other), that the replacement is of the same type.

If polarized, it will be important to connect the wires properly once you have cut the old plug off.
If the old cord has a black and a white conductor, the black goes to the narrow blade, the white goes to the wider blade.
If not colored, then not the cord will be ribbed. The ribs go to the wider blade, the smooth goes to the narrow blade. Be sure you get this correct for best electrical and shock protection.

My Kitchen Aid Aritsan was a gift bought in the US. We live in Zambia/Africa (using 240v electricity). One day there was a loud pop at the plug and a slight smokey smell. Its never worked since


I will assume that you were not using a step-down transformer (240 to 120 volts).

So what may have happened?

1. The phase board burned out.
2. The stator burned out.
3. The armature burned out.
4. The line cord and/or plug failed.

It could be one, all, or any combination of these things.

A solution is to simply convert the mixer to 240 volts. This can be done by replacing all four items above with the 240 volt versions.

If I were doing this here in the U.S., Ebay would be my source for the parts.

You can find a Service Manual which covers your model (even though it may net say so) and shows how it comes apart at:

Getting an electrical shock from the outside of my Kitchen Aid power stand up mixer. No visible break in cord.


But!!!! there could be a break in the grounding wire inside the back of the mixer motor head, it is easy to check. face the rear of the mixer and look at the top you will see a small screw, remove it and gently lift the rear cover up and out muck more up than out (you could break off the mounting ears on the bottom of the rear cover) then look at the plug wires, white and black wires should be attached by clips to speed control switch the green grounding wire should be attached to the mixer frame with a screw, if it has come off then put it back on, the screw should have fallen out when the rear cover was taken off if the screw has come out, it may just be loose also so use a phillips head screw to tighten down. please let us know if this helped or you need more help there may be a more serious electrical problem that needs to be dealt with.

KITCHEN AID MIXER K5SS has a banging noise when turned on how would I find out how to fix it ?


You will need to open it up and inspect the brushes carefully. Look for a little copper wire, this wire needs to be firmly attached to both the brush and the little disc at the other end of the spring. Clean the brush out with a can of electric cleaner to free any dirt that has built up around the gears.

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.
