Question about Philips Food Mixers

1 Answer

As I have been using philips HR2985B for more than twenty years, it seems its motor is getting weaker. So, I feel it is time to buy new one of 110 volts. By the way, I bought it Vancouver Canada. Thank you.

Motors themselves do not really wear out in the electrical sense, more the brushes may need replacing, or the motors bearings may become worn, The commutator may also have to be cleaned and/or skimmed, Also the wires and connections may need replacing, but as long as a motor is functioning OK, then it doesn't really get "Weaker" with age. I have seen well maintained, 100 year old motors still going and strong doing the same task as good as the day they were made.
In saying that though, there is no real good reason why you couldn't replace it? As long as you can get, a similar Motor that's an exact physical "Fit" onto/into the existing Mounts etc. Then you should have no trouble, at all.
Another thing I guess you could take the existing motor to a motor re-conditioner, they will replace all the bearings, wiring, brushes, if any, rewind the armature, and fields, if any.. skim the commutator, whatever it takes to return that Motor to "Just Like New". or pretty close.

Kitchenaid frozen bearing


Hi Thaddeus, What model is it? If you have taken it apart and checked the worm gear surely you would have stumbled on the frozen bearing if one exists. When you split the gear cases you are in a position to turn everything by hand so any frozen part is going to be pretty obvious.
Cheers Ross

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.

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 used to live in america and i moved to australia, mcan i use my mixer? it says 110 volt


Maiins Voltage in Aus is nominally 240 Volts, so plugging in directly with an adaptor will fuse motor. The only way to use the Miixer is to purchase a step down transformer (ie 240 V to 110 V) with a minimum rating at least equal to the power of the mixer which is 250 Watts. You should be able to purchase the transformer online or through Jaycar Electronics (branches in most major cities) . They are not that cheap but would be less than getting a new mixer rated at the correct voltage and it would also let you power other 110 V items that you have provided you don't exceed the transformer rating.

Change Hobart N-50 110 V / 60 Hz to 230 V / 50 Hz


You would need to provide the correct power to match the maching, or replace the rotor, stator, controls to match the higher voltage, and worm gears to correct the speed, from 60 to 50 Hz. Unless you don't mind it running slower. Cheaper to find one that matches your local spec..

Mixer gets hot and smokes when in use.


Smoking and overheating during use does not usually indicate a problem with motor oil. Kitchenaid stand mixers have sufficient oil in them to lubricate the motor for its lifetime.

Smoking and overheating are geneally caused by overuse. Consult your use and care guide or Kitchenaid Customer Service to ensure the mixer is being used properly. Customer Service would also be able to send you a new Use and Care Guide at no charge.

Their toll-free telephone number is 1-800-541-6390.

Panasonic MX-216E - work when you shake it or tap some times..


I used to live in Mtn. View on Bryant St. next to the P.G.&E office, great town.

I have had appliances go as long as twenty years and never had the brushes go out, but it sounds kie that is your problem alright, this is very unusual I would contact Panasonic and see what they will do for you there is usually a one year parts warranty on small appliances, call them you have nothing to lose. I would call this a factory defect.
