I used my Kitchenaid Artisan mixer yesterday quite a bit...I whipped egg whites and cream for a mousse and then used the Pasta roller attachment for 2lbs for pasta. Needless to say, midway through the pasta, I thought the machine broke or I fried the motor. I turned it off and tried turning it back on again and the motor made noise like it was going to run, but didnt. I thought I might have broken a gear inside since it was still turning on.
This morning, I checked to see if there was any change and the mixer seems to be working fine. I didnt use it to do anything, but i turned it on, and it seemed like all is well. Is it possible that the mixer was overheating and wouldn't work as a defense against further overheating? With Christmas coming up, I am a but worried about it going out on me...Obviously I will make sure I split its duties up over a few days from here on out and not try to push the limits of a small motor, but should I get this looked at or has this happened to people before?
