well a big thanks to everyone for their sympathy over the illness
of my breadmaker. for those who inquired, no, i didn't purchase
the breadmaker with a credit card so the 3 month warranty that DAK
offered is all i have. sniff sniff. since that is expired, i am
pretty much on my own. DAK gave me info about their repair service
but that requires my shipping the breadmaker to california at my
expense and providing a $12 "processing fee" in addition to whatever
repair charge they assess. sounds like it might get pricey.
i have noticed an amazing similarity between the DAK breadmakers
and the welbilt ones. perhaps welbilt makes the DAK ones or else
the 2 companies share a manufacturer? anyway, i'd like to explore
the possibility of finding a repair place closer to me than DAKs.
does anyone have a service number for welbilt or know how i might
go about finding a place that would even look at this breadmaker?
p.s. yes, i am suffering severe homemade bread withdrawals.
