I was using my Kitchen Aid the other day making NFSC, and the phone rang and I forgot it was running. The motor had stopped and the unit was hot and the back of it had turned a little blck. I thought Oh Great, just what I need to replace a $450.00 600 Pro mixer. I decided to try and take it to the appliance repair place just to see, it was a fuse!! $30.00 fix. The guy said they have a reset fuse in them that when the machine gets worked too hard it gets shut off to cool down. The fuse had blown and that is what the smell was. Just thought this might help someone else if teir machine quits working. It might save you from having to buy a new one.
Thanks for that tip. I'll keep that in mind next time I make fondant!
Thanks for this helpful bit of info!
