Hamilton Beach Model 27 (antique milkshake blender)

I have an old (1950's?) Hamilton Beach mixer (model 27) that needs a new motor (I think).  It just won't mix, instead it smells as if it is burning from inside.   I live on a small island off the coast of Georgia, so I would need to mail it somewhere.  Where?

    The Hamilton Beach mixer I spoke of is actually a milkshake mixer (model 27) from the 1950's.  It needs a new motor, most likely and I don't know where to send it.  Help?!

First off, check the supply cord. They usually dry out and the insulation crumbles, particularly at the point where they enter the body or motor. They short out. I've replaced cords on antique stand mixers I own. It can be a tricky operation.
Is the motor seized? Can you turn it by hand? (NOT plugged in, of course.)
If all else fails, send it to me and I'll fix it for a reasonable fee, if it is fixable at all.

People always think the motor does not work, and do not realize you need to have the metal cup in place for it to work. The switch on top of the mixer, is NOT an on/off switch, it is a slow/fast switch and will only work if I milkshake cup is installed on the mixer, as the on/off switch is hidden under the catch that holds the cup. In essence attaching the cup turns the mixer on, and removing the cup turns the mixer off. You cannot (without knowing how) make the motor run without a cup attached.

My Hamilton Beach model 63220 mixer won't mix motor is running but mixer is frozen and will not turn


If mixer is locked in down position, and you hear motor running, the problem could be worn gears in mixer head. Check warranty and return to place of purchase or take to small appliance repair shop for estimate.

I have a Hamilton Beach Model 727-3. Works fine but I lost the mixing shaft. I ordered a new one for model 727-B (there was no model 727-3 listed). I am having difficulty getting the new shaft...


The part you need for the 727-3 is referred to as an "Agitator". It looks like the mixer shaft for the 727B but it has "ears" instead of "pins" that lock the shaft into the mixer. Same price but different name and part number.

Stand Mixer


Model H was discontinued in the 70's. You might find beaters either directly from Hamilton Beach or on Ebay. There aren't many small appliance repair shops any more, everything now, is considered disposable.

K45 started smoking while mixing cookie dough


There is the possibility that if the mixer is 30 years old and it has never been serviced that the gasket around the gear case is leaking oil and in that case it would not be hard to get liquids on the armature or the stator as the gear grease in the transmission is vegetable base grease and it separates into liquids and solid and when the head is tilted up the failed gasket allows the separated oil to leak down and to the rear onto the mixer right onto the motor parts. It maybe nothing more that cleaning out all the old grease and re-packing and adding a new gasket.
