I wonder if anyone can help.

I have a Tasin TS-108 meat grinder. It's supposed to be a work horse but tonight as I was grinding chicken #2 for my dog, it ceased. I could smell a burning smell coming from the motor.

Now it won't start. Is it ruined? Can it be repaired? It has a circuit breaker button but that seems to be jammed.

Oh, no, Greenie!

Poor Greenie, your motor burnt. How did it happen?

You poor, poor thing.

Thank you for asking. (I was beginning to think nobody noticed my thread.)

It happened while I was making raw food for my dog. She's old and has no teeth, and she loves her raw food. She sits on the floor next to me while I make it. I had just spent $26 on organic chicken at Whole Foods. I was putting a thigh bone through and suddenly the motor just completely ceased and then I could smell it, that burning motor smell. So there I was stuck with 10 pounds of half ground raw chicken. Half ground, because usually I put it through a second time to grind it extra find. I can't use the chicken now because it's got too many bone bits in it. I was upset. My dog was upset. The kitchen was a mess. It was a horrible evening.

That sucks. Did you check the warranty? Maybe you can have it fixed for free.

Just put the chicken in the freezer until you get it sorted out.

Warranty is expired. I did put the chicken in the freezer. But now doggie has nothing for breakfast.

I'm fed up. I'm going to bed.... stomp, stomp, stomp... [door slamming]

I beleive in the fine print it says motor should be run no longer than 10 minutes with cool down time in between. Sorry to hear it burnt.
