Advice re Hobart N50 mixer
I'm an amateur breadmaker, have been baking for a couple of years - every other day just for my family of 3 (or 4 when student eldest child returns from uni) and currently using a kenwood chef.
I covet my mum's Hobart mixer which she has used for 25-30 years but just recently found one on facebook marketplace for £85 without equipment, that the seller says "could do with a new stator"... when enquired, they said "Gearbox is good. I'm guessing stator as it will fire up and turn .but there is a dead spot at certain points like the power is being cut. Then when you rotate it by hand it will power up again then power stops till you rotate it by hand again"
I do a bit of DIY appliance repair, but wanted to check with someone more experienced if this might just be a simple need for motor brushes, or if it sounds like a "walk away unless they accept £50 for it" job?
