are you sure you gave the right 'venting' link? I don't see anything by AndyM there, nor any mention of mixers in toilets.....curious though!

Sorry. The link works for me. Go to post #1411 in the venting thread.

I have been having a run of product bad luck since the end of November.

First the mixer/toilet issue followed by a dishwasher replacement, a defective battery in the new car, a leak that needed a plumber and now the mixer's dead. I've had enough.

If my mixer has nylon gears can I have them changed to metal?
The Original Professional 5 [KP 50 or KSM50 ?] does have a nylon worm gear and there is not an optional metal version available as a repair part.

When a Classic mixer breaks, it is almost a certainty that the worm gear is the cause. You should be able to verify it by putting a paddle or dough hook on the mixer and turning it half a turn. The motor should then be able to turn the paddle until it reaches the broken or bent teeth on the worm gear.

A proper repair will usually take a couple of hours of bench time and cost $80-$100 depending on your local labor rate.

Thanks for the info, Jim.

I just told my hubby this sad tale of woe...or tried to through laughter and tears! You must get it fixed Andy, we NEED that KA. It is a part of DC lore we just can't do without.

I say we take up a collection for the Pro 5 Killer KA.
