|NutriMill Grain Mill|
The Ultramill holds more grain (so produces up to 20 cups of flour instead of 12 or 13), and it can be turned on and off with grain in it, while it's recommended you start the WonderMill first before adding grain, and it's a clogging risk to turn it off, then back on while full. The Ultramill seems to have a larger variety of milling size, creating coarser to fine flours, even though the WonderMill has a similar adjustment knob.

It's been proven in testing that this motor can handle milling 1000 lbs of flour, continuously for 9 1/2 hours, without a problem. The motor didn't stop at that point, they just stopped testing.
Hubby voted I buy new for the estimated $40 extra, and he'd take the original to an electrical shop to see if they could fix the existing motor, hopefully for much less than $200... Then one of the princesses could have it.
Back to Amazon I went, and as a precaution, started reading reviews before hitting the "Add to Cart" button. Within some of the comments left for someone's review, which I rarely read, was mention of a re-set button on the bottom of the WhisperMill....
Eureka! Indeed she was correct, and my re-set switch was tripped. A simple click, a test plug-in, and my WhisperMill roared to life!!!! (Amusing Prince Steadfast to no end that I did this in the dining room and it shot flour halfway up the wall -- A photo of that might have been good to add here...)

focused on internet research! Thank goodness
I didn't lock the lid, or I'd be looking for a new
one of those next.
A day dedicated to research just to finally find that crucial bit of info...
Anyway, crisis averted, money not spent, and we're back in business. PHEW. It's all very good.
