Question about KitchenAid ProLine 600 Stand Mixer

Open Question

Hi all, we have a KitchenAid 575 W Professional 600 Stand Mixer bought in the US. We recently moved to Europe and brought a 1000 W transformer for 220V to 110V conversion and it has been working fine. We use the mixer frequently. Today my wife accidentally plugged it into a 220 outlet and a huge 'pop' noise occured with the result of the mixer not working anymore. There was some smoke coming out of it as well. The fuse for the outlet (house electrical) blew as well. I was hoping that the fuse saved it, but it will not turn on. This mixer is very hard to find in Europe, if it is even sold at all. I have only found the smaller Artisan models. I am looking for help/advice to fix this. I am a computer technician with no electrical knowledge at all. When something like this happens, is there a possibllity for repair? What part most likely got damaged? I have a small volt meter, but am not very good at using it. I thought of buying a 220V replacement motor, but have not been able to locate one yet. Thanks in advance for any help on this issue. Best Regards, Rick

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.

I have a kitchenaid 600 professional stand mixer. I was told that you can only use the dough hook with setting 2 for only 5 minutes. What do you do for recipes requiring a longer time for kneading? Is...


You can knead longer than that, but you run the risk of over heating the mixer because at that point the dough is very firm. Your best bet is to knead it by hand.

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!

Thumping Noise Under Duress


Hi. Your problem probably lies in the plastic transmission housing. This cheap piece of plastic has no business in a high priced mixer, as it has two important shafts that depend on the integrity of this housing for their bearing seats

Remove the top cover from the mixer. At the front top of the mixer is the trans. housing. Examine this housing carefully for cracks. If you find cracks, then you have new damage inside the mixer. If, when you replaced the three gears, I suspect that you did not discover the cracks in the trans. housing and reinstalled it after you replaced the gears, or you may have missed internal damage from the first breakdown.

When this cheap plastic part fails, it can destroy the worm gear, it's bearings and the bearing seats and possibly more.

Kitchenaid's replacement housing is made of metal. Kitchenaid markets these mixers saying it can handle bread dough. The ugly truth is they cannot!

You must open the unit up, remove and save the grease if it's relatively new. You must check every moving part in the mixer's transmission. You have to remove grease from these parts in order to find the damage. When you have the unit repaired, sell it!

I had the same problem with my mixer. I replaced all of the broken parts, and sold it. Since then, I bought a used Hobart N50 ( 5 quart), and an A200 (20 quart) mixers, both of which are commercial mixers. Both of these can handle heavy dough and they do so with ease.

Kitchenaid, to this date, have refused to recall these trans. housings, even though thousands of these cheap plastic housings have failed. Good luck with this saga!

KitchenAid 575 Professional Mixer


Read the instruction manual. There is a screw to adjust the beater height, it is where the mixer joins to the stand.

There is an adjustment screw and a system for setting it. You can find a video of it here (or just a ton of people who know all about these mixers). I just found it while trying to troubleshoot the same problem for my wifes mixer.
