I was using my Kitchen Aid Stand mixer to make naan. The dough was just coming together and the speed was either 2 or 3. I moved away and the next thing I knew the top/head/motor of the KA was at my feet, the dough hook still rotating. The bowl was still attached to the base. When I investigated I realized that the motor had completely ripped off of the base. (The silver pin still in tack, the hinge still attached to the base but broken off at the top of the hinge and a hole in the bottom of the motor where it had been attached to the base.)

I have contact Kitchen Aid and they are sending me a replacement and I am supposed to the send the broken one back to them,

I thought I should contact you so that you can be aware that this product failure happened. If I had been two feet closer I could have been seriously hurt. The motor weighs a ton.

Model No: KSM150PSWH Serial No: W10793218 Purchased by State Farm as a replacement from the one I lost in a house fire in February 2011.

I have photos.
