Question about Bosch MUM6630 Universal Series Stand Mixer
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.
