Hi Laurin, My kids and I used to be patients of yours! Who knew we would meet up again in a bread-baking forum? Did your mixer come back on? I have a 6-qt. Kitchen Aid that has stopped working in the midst of mixing CL for the second time in a year. I had it repaired last Deember and it has been working fine if I only knead two loaves at a time. Well, I overdid it last week and it won’t start now. I’m debating having it repaired or getting a new mixer.
