We took it to the local (Winston Salem, NC) KitchenAid repair station. After a wait of three months and a bill of $145, we finally got our mixer back. Only to find that it now dribbled and spit dark GREASE into the bowl whenever it was turned on.
Back to the repair station and a wait of another 7 1/2 weeks and ANOTHER $120. Now that it is back, it still spits grease into the bowl (just slightly less than it did before)....and now also makes a racket so loud the dogs howl and run to the other end of the house any time it is turned on.
I called KitchenAid about the matter. They told me that they would not second guess their repair station....and therefore would not lift a finger to help us nor replace their clearly defective mixer.
I am not about to spend ANOTHER $125+ for them to take another stab at it because they obviously either cannot...or don't want to...fix it. I have already paid very nearly as much in repair charges as I paid for the mixer brand new. What would the point be?
That was almost four years ago. My Pro 600, which I paid a dear fortune for, has sat on the shelf compleatly useless ever since.
I am retired and on a fixed income now....I can't afford to replace it...with a KitchenAId or anything else.
And I can't risk using it....grease in our food surely would be toxic, or worse. And that racket clearly signals that there are other problems either caused or un-addressed (I suspect the former) by KitchenAids' incompetent repair station.
So...if I need a mixer, it's either my Viking stick blender or my venerable 35 year old GE hand mixer which I have had since college and is still going strong. If either of these won't fit the bill...I just can't make it.
Thanks KitchenAid. I hope you enjoy the money we paid to buy your lemon and the equal amount we paid to your incompetent repair station in wasted repair charges.
I will never again EVER purchase ANY product with a KitchenAid badge on it. And I strongly urge anyone considering such a purchase to take my experience with this company to heart.
(Of course, now I have said that I am sure that all of this will never see the light of day. Bad for business, of course
Questions & Answers
It says Made in China but the same machine at W&S says it is Made in Ohio. Which is correct?
Can I use this overseas? Such as south Korea? They use 110W over there. Can I just use the converter to use this?
