There is an amazing KA repair shop in the SODO area. Old-school and really good. I googled it before I took mine there and it and has great reviews. If you can’t find it, let me know and I will help you find it.
Another one bites the dust? My old 4-qt KA melted down today. I was making marshmallows, not bread, but wonder if the stress of the new formula, which I mixed up earlier in the week, took its toll. Will bring it in to a small appliance repair shop (anyone know of a good one in Seattle?) next week. Good thing I got my Community Loaves baked already!
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.
Just a heads up, my older Kitchenaid Pro burned out and stopped working about 2 minutes into adding all of the ingredients for the new classic recipe (making 4 loaves). Be careful to not over-tax your mixer! My mixer did not feel overly hot so wasn’t expecting it to stop working.
