    Thanks Katherine.

    The motor just stopped in the middle of mixing.  The machine wasn’t hot (this was before porridge) so that’s confusing.  I let it rest for ten minutes and then started it up and it made an odd crunching noise.  Not good!  Since this is a new machine I fear it doesn’t have the sturdy metal parts inside like the old ones.  I’ll take it in for repair tomorrow and see what they say.  Thanks!

    What are the symptoms? Is the motor still running? I fixed my kitchenaid twice in the past 15 years. Both times the worm follower gear (the only nylon gear) got stripped.

    Margaret,

    I’m so sorry to hear about your KitchenAid. It sounds like it had been doing a really good job. I can recommend an excellent repair place in Redmond – Action Appliance – here’s the link: https://actionsmallappliances.com/

    My 7 qt died in the middle of what was going to be my first batch of 4 for this week. It had been doing fine with 4 loaf batches for a year and a half.  I had developed beautiful window pane and very tight dough and ended up having to mix the porridge in by hand.  That was quite a job–my husband had to help.  I use molasses so the porridge was very visible during the slap and fold process.  I don’t know how anyone can do this on a regular basis!

    Anyhoo, my mixer is only a year and a half old.  Got it for Christmas just for making our loaves.  Breaks my heart. Is there a good place to get it fixed?  Thanks for your advice.
