My Kitchenaid Pro 600 mixer plugged accidentally to 220V

Hi,

i recently bought Kitchenaid Pro 600 mixer from the US and didnt now that electronics from US still use 120V only. so i plugged it to the power outlet and short circuit happened. then i realized that it is 120V .

Hi @hasanissa

You will have to open the mixer and check the control board to see what is damaged.

Most probably there will be a MOV surge suppressor and a fuse that hopefully is all that has been damaged but you won’t know until you open it and check.

Here’s the ifixit KitchenAid Professional 600 Repair guides, which may be of some help in opening the mixer.

If you do see any problems and/or are not quite sure, post some close up images of the control board back here. Here’s how to do this. Aggiungere immagini ad una domanda

If you do manage to fix it you will need a 220V to 120V Voltage converter that can supply the required power that the mixer needs to be able to use it where you are. The mixer’s power rating should be printed on the label attached to the mixer, showing power in Watts (W)

Here’s a link which has some good information about choosing the correct one (scroll down to find all the details)

Not sure if the frequency of the power supply is relevant to the mixer or not. It has been designed for a 120V AC 60Hz supply so if the power supply where you are is only 50Hz it may not work properly with just standard (cheaper) converters. These converters just change the voltage and not the frequency. They just convert the voltage at the same frequency as what is being supplied to it. If you do need a converter which also alters the frequency from 50Hz to 60Hz as well as the voltage from 220v AC to 120V AC the cost is much more and it may be cheaper to buy a similar mixer locally.
