Kitchenaid K45SS ï¿½ Major Restoration ï¿½ SOS!
I know this is a long shot, but I'm hoping somebody out there can help.
The good: a friend gave me an old Kitchenaid K45SS he found in a shed on his Mom's property.
The bad: The shed had been infested with bees, whose honey attraced roaches, who then proceeded to colonize the motor/housing of the mixer. :(
About the mixer: The motor still runs but makes a 'funny smell', probably due to crud built up on the brush/motor.
My question: Has anyone out there ever cleaned such a mess up before? Any advice? Is this involved a cleaning even possible? Is it beyond saving? I'd like to clean the heck out of this thing and make it work again. It was made back when Hobart still owned Kitchenaid and I'd hate to just throw it away. My time and labor are no issue. Aside from the filth, it's in pretty good mechanical order from what I've seen..
Thanks for any advice.
