Converting The 6qt KV25G KitchenAid Mixer


Hi I’m Jade from KaParts. In this video I am going to show you how to convert a 6qt mixer from its original American 110 volts to work in Europe on 230 volt supply We will be using a KV25G mixer
but the same technique can be used for others. For a full list of models that can be converted, please visit our website We will be using a Phillips PH2 screwdriver for the whole conversion Take off all the removable parts such as the bowl and beater The parts we will be replacing are the Motor, Control board and Power lead and also be adding a new RF filter Remove the trim band from the head of the mixer. Use a PH2 screwdriver, undo the screw at the back of the mixer Be careful not to bend the trim band as you are taking it off Be aware that the trim band can spring off Keep the screws safe ready for when the mixer is put back together There are 2 screws on each side of the mixer. Undo all 4 screws to allow the head to come off the mixer Now put the head to one side Now remove the two screws on the motor And the 2 screws on either side of the control board The control board will now lift off the mixer We can remove the connectors that attach to the power cable and the two connectors attached to the motor We will also need to remove the hall sensor We will be putting the same hall sensor onto our new
motor To remove this you will need to press the clips down at the same time Unscrew the 4 screws that attach the gear case Gently pull up and the gear case should come away Be aware of the grease in the gear case The motor can now be pulled out carefully and we can now unscrew the ‘earth screw’ Unscrew the 3 screws left on the lower housing Pull the power cord out We will now put the mixer back together using the new 230 volt parts Please put the 110 volt parts out of the way to prevent them accidentally being reused Here are the new 230V parts Slot the new power cord into place Place the lower housing back on the base and replace the 3 screws We can now smear some of the
existing grease over the end of the new motor, worm gear, shaft and the bevel pin Clip the hall sensor onto the top of the new motor and place in the mixer Screw the motor down with the two screws Take the new control board and place it in the mixer and screw down with two screws Then attach the hall sensor connector back to it Put the gear case back on top of the worm gear, bevel pin and shaft Tighten with 2 screws on the front. You will put the back screws in later You will need to put your RF filter into the mixer, this will sit between the gear box and the motor You will see two holes either side of the RF filter were you can screw it in with the gear box attached to the same screws On the new control board you will see it has a brown and blue cable that you will need to attach Now you have replaced your power lead you will see that you can attach the cables from the RF filter to the power lead and attach the RF filter to the control board You will also need to attach the
cables from the motor onto the control board We can now screw the earth cable back in from the power lead We have now changed all the parts
to 230V Carefully place the head back on the mixer And then screw the 2 screws on the head either side back in Finally place the trim band back round the mixer and screw it back on Next we will plug the mixer in and test that it runs. If everything has gone well the mixer should work flawlessly at all speeds Thank you for watching this video, I hope it has helped you to convert your mixer If you would like to purchase any of the parts you have seen on the video please visit our website www.kaparts.co.uk
