Hi @Rebeca Marx ,
What is the transformer connected to now, 220V AC or 120V AC, since you said that it "was" working in Spain and your question states "Fix for wrong voltage used"? Where is/was the wrong voltage used as the transformer should have supplied the correct voltage if the supply was 220V AC?
If still 220V AC mains supply, do you have any other appliances that require 120V AC, that can be plugged into the stepdown transformer to prove that it is working OK i.e. 120V AC at its' output?
That may be what you might have to try first, if you already haven't done so, before starting on the food processor.
If there is the correct output then if you have a DMM (digital mutlimeter) use its' Ohmmeter function and with the processor disconnected from everything, connect the meter directly across the processor's power plug pins and check if there is a reading, proving the power cord into the processor. You may have to switch it on to get a reading. If there is no reading on even if there is you will have to open the processor and check the circuit board for any damage.
Post some pictures back here of the board in case you can't see anything (or even if you can).
Hi @Rebeca Marx,
I would suspect that the Switch part (control board) as shown in your image has been damaged. Hopefully the motor also hasn’t been damaged as well.
You will have to open the processor and check what damage has occurred to the control board and possibly the motor.
Post some close up images back here of any damage or even if you can't see anything obvious as it may be obvious to others.
If the board is damaged then fixing it (or replacing it) may fix the problem but it may occur again in the future if the problem is being caused by the stepdown transformer not being suitable for the processor and eventually the board will fail again. (see below for explanation).
According to the food processor’s user manual its’ electrical specifications are 120V AC, 60Hz and most probably the mains supply where you are located is 230V AC, 50Hz.
I realize that you have a stepdown transformer but these usually only convert the voltage and NOT the frequency of the supply. They just supply the lower voltage at the same frequency as the input i.e 50Hz. What is the make and model number of the stepdown transformer? There are stepdown transformers that convert both the voltage and the frequency but these are usually more than 3 times the price of the ones that only convert the voltage..
Also the other devices that you have connected to the stepdown transformer may have been designed so that they work at both 50Hz and 60Hz with no problems. Check what it says on the product information label attached to those devices.
Operating appliances at the wrong frequency can cause problems. Here is a link that explains it better than I can. See Case 2: You have 50Hz power for a 60Hz appliance
Hi @Rebeca Marx,
A MOV surge protector has blown.
I can only make out a bit of the component value markings printed on it.
If you could gently move it and try to make out all that is written on the component it makes it easier to find the replacement component, and that it is all that may be needed to be replaced for it to work again. Try not to touch the markings as sometimes they rub off easily when handled.
Here’s a zoomed in image taken from your image showing the damaged component.
My eyes aren’t what they were so I can only make out:
top row V (Y?) D R
middle row 1 0 ? 7 1 K
bottom row ? ? 0 4
