Question about Food Mixers
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?
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.
