Over the summer we headed over to Seattle to be factory trained in the maintenance and repair of KitchenAid mixers. The training was mostly a hands-on experience, with the instructor (who has completed hundreds of KitchenAid mixer repairs) providing a tremendous amount of knowledge into the repair of these mixers. We continue to communicate regularly by phone, and occasionally Ed travels to Seattle for parts and additional training. If you need your KitchenAid mixer repaired, now there is someone on the Kitsap side of Elliott Bay who knows how!
