Where do you have your mixer repaired?
I happen to have a 5-Qt I bought around 1980. Only once did I have it fixed: something related to controlling speed snapped.
there's a place called manau cutlery, which sharpens knives for restaurants and butchers, etc. and repairs restaurant appliances. i've asked if anyone can bring in home sized kitchenaids and the word is yes. i always get my mixer back the next day. the only official kitchenaid appliance repair place (last time i checked) is in elmhurst and repairs take weeks! so go ahead and bring your mixer in. but i suggest you call ahead, talk to bill, and make sure he has the parts you need as your machine is old. it might be cash only, so ask about that as well.

As bad luck would have it I broke my Kitchen Aid stand mixer last Sunday. (Pro tip - with the meat grinder attached do not suddenly jerk the throttle all the way to high to see how fast it will go.)
Anyway with the help of youtube I am fixing it myself. The worm gear is ordered from Midwest Appliance Parts (or some such name) at 2037 W Fullerton.
