Repairing a KitchenAid Mixer?
Our church has 2 Kitchenaid mixers (maybe 40 years old?) that need
repair (suggestions in the San Francisco Bay area?). They seem to
be used 2 days a year but heavily. The ladies think that they may
be too old to repair and would like to replace them with a similar heavy duty type machine. Any suggestions for me?
I live in Manhattan, so I wouldn't know where to get them repaired in the Bay area. But I do have a suggestion. If the machines are maybe 40 years old, try your damnedest to get them repaired. They're probably the original Hobart's and you won't be able to replace them with anything even half as good, unless you go with a very high end, very high capacity, very expensive, professional machine.
I would just take a look in the yellow pages under appliances, check for someone who repairs kitchenaid or hobart, and give them a call. I bet you won't have any trouble. People tend to hold on to those old kitchenaids.
and, if they decide to buy new ones i might be interested in buying the one of the old ones!
