Question about Electric Kitchen Appliances - Others

1 Answer

I have a Saladmaster electric skillet, SA012OCU, designed for use in the USA, power of 120V, 50-60 Hz. We are going to Australia, which has standard electricity of 220V, 50 Hz. Will a voltage converter be sufficient for the unit or is a full transformer required? I called Saladmaster and they were a bit vague... "we recommend a transformer to be on the safe side, but you can ask a dealer once in Australia to confirm". They did say that a different power cord / control unit wouldn't be sufficient, which I also found odd. Any thoughts or recommendations?

I was looking at the Australian website for Saladmaster electric skillet, SA012OCU.

SOURCE: Different HZs problem (from 60Hz to 50Hz)

Hi,

Yes there are frequency converters available but most are relatively over rated (industrial) for your requirement such as MDS Power or VisiComm Industries. What you need is a Low Power Solid State Frequency Converters lower than a
Electrocon Frequency Converters. However, I expect this devices to be rather expensive.

A few other options you may want to consider:
1. Contact the store where you bought if from; swap with an International version (Model SL-1210 Mark II; same price as SL-1200 Mark II); dual voltage switchable on rear of unit: 120 volts/60 Hz (U.S.) or 220 volts/50 Hz (Europe). You hopefully just spend for the cost of shipping + a restocking fee;
2. Contact 3rd party Technics TT specialist like TopDJGear, Quality Electronics, Planet DJ or DJHardware
and inquire if they would supply you the part(s) that you need to convert the 1200 to a 1210; or
3. Offer a swap on eBay.

Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: JCR-160 clock radio Clock running slow

The clock works off the frequency (hertz). In US the electrical wave frequency is 60HZ/sec and in India and many other countries 50HZ/sec. Hence, the clock slows down about 6 seconds or so every minute.

SOURCE: can you use a xbox 360 european power brick (220v) on a USA xbox 360 in europe

You must see the data on the brick label. If it says the correct tension (tension = voltage), yes, you can. But be careful because the Xbox's have three tipes of tension. It depends on the motherboard. If the mother is a Falcon, the tension is 14.2 V, but if it is a new Jasper, the tension is 12.1 V.

Kitchenaid mixers are not recommended on the use of a converter as they are not tested under such conditions. Understanding this, using a convertor on your mixer may automatically void the 1 year warranty regardless of age.

There are international Kitchenaid dealers available if you are requiring 110V. You may contacted Kitchenaid Customer Service for more information.

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

Will my Behringer amp purchased in the USA work in Australia


You will probably need a voltage converter. Unless you purchased the general export model with a switchable voltage power supply, your PMX2000 will have the power supply for the 120V 60 Hz electrical mains and a 10A H fuse. To confirm this, look on the back of the amp.
I wish that I had better news for you.

Need to transform 120v power to 240v


Bad news:

UK has 50 Hz electricity, and appliances are rated for local power..
Any appliance made for US market is rated 60 Hz.
50 Hz and 60 Hz electricity are different.

Look at label on your mixer, and then look at labels on local appliances. You will see 50 cycles or 60 cycles. Rarely appliances are labeled 50-60 cycles.
http://www.worldstandards.eu/electricity.htm#voltage
http://waterheatertimer.org/See-inside-main-breaker-box.html#Hz
http://waterheatertimer.org/What-is-3-phase-electric.html#120-240

Hz Hertz or cycles or frequency is number of rotations the electric generator turns per second.

Some appliances are rated 50-60 cycles and will work worldwide.
However most appliances are rated 50 or rated 60 but not both.
60 cycle motor will not perform as expected when connected to 50 cycles. And might overheat.
Generally, most motors can be converted to different voltages by taking motor to motor shop (if you can find one these day)
However electronic controls cannot be converted between 120V and 230V, nor will 50 Hz electronics work with 60 Hz power

Sorry Sue.
Buy another mixer.
Business will benefit from surge of consumer buying.

I'm looking for one skillet power control for Rena Ware fry electric pan Cat. 17530


Rena Ware Electric Skillets use the same control as West Bend WB-1 . The back of the Rena Ware Control does say WB-1. Mine is 1500 watt.
You can find the WB-1 eBay for various prices. A generic heat control will probably work as well if it is the same wattage. I have a Saladmaster control that also works for this skillet.1_26_2012_12_42_14_am.jpg
