While grinding pork for andouille, the grinder gear box blew. The unit is was a KitchenAid Professional 6 model. 525 watt.
I found shaved ice jammed in the grinder. Had to have come from the meat. I just did not imagine this would happen.
I am passing this on as a valuable lesson I learned and a warning to others.
PS....The mixer will still make COOKIES !!!
Has anyone had experience with KitchenAid Customer Service? Who to contact etc? Thanks Dave
