    Hello:



    I have a Sunbeam 275 Watts 2366 MixMaster Series Hand/Stand Mixer. It simply would not start one day, though it has not been used a great deal since we bought it. I wanted to take it apart to find out where the break in the circuit is. (I usually fix my own small appliances, unless it's too far gone) However, I couldn't figure out how this mixer comes apart --- there's no screws or clips in sight. Perhaps the problem is simply a blown thermal fuse.



    So, could you give me an idea how I can to disassemble it without doing any damage to it. ------ That wouldn't be a company secret now, would it ??



    Thank you

Carefully pop the speed boost buttun from the top handle.

There is a small phillips #1 screw inside. Removing this screw will allow you to take the front cover off where two screws for the main case are located.

This is as far as I have gotten so far.

You probably blew out whats called a thermal fuse. In most motor curcuits, the thermal fuse is wired into the motor wires via wire nuts or clips. not really a job for the layman to attempt. A small appliance servicer should be able to assist you in this repair.

Thanks for the top button screw advice, we couldn't figure out how to open the case. My Sister dropped the mixer with the beaters on, smacking the beater gear out of the gear spindle assembly box. She will be very happy, it's fixed now.

My Sunbeam Mixmaster 100-86 659 stopped mixing. The motor turns on but won't drive the beaters.


Sounds like motor is burning out or has burned out. How old is it and do you use it for heavy things. They won't last if it is a cheaper model. I had a cheaper one and got very little time out of it. I bought a lot more expensive one and it has lasted several years.

One of my blades is stuck and I can't engage the release


Make sure your Beater can slip in and out of the Beater Shaft
easily. Do not force the beater onto the Shaft if the shaft is bent.
If it cannot be removed easily by hand, use a soft rubber mallet
(not a steel hammer) to slightly tap the beater so it can be moved
up and down the shaft or from side to side. Then you can easily
turn the beater left and remove it from the shaft.

From Kitchenaid Manual:
To Attach Flat Beater, Wire Whip, or Dough Hook
1. Turn speed control to OFF.
2. Unplug stand mixer or disconnect power.
3. Tilt motor head back.
4. Slip beater onto beater shaft and press upward
as far as possible.
5. Turn beater to right, hooking beater over pin on shaft.
6. Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

The beaters won't go around. The motor is running


I can't solve this problem, but mine just died doing the very same thing. Motor is running, the revolving base is turning, and the beaters are just sitting there. Ruined an entire batch of divinity!

Leaking oil from the main part. Kitchen aid mixer, only used a few times a year


Leaking of oil in a stand mixer is not necessarily indicative of a large problem.

Kitchenaid stand mixers are overpacked with oil to last the lifetime of the motor. If the motor sits idle for some time (is not used), the oil may begin to drip from the gears and settle. Oil leakage may primarily be seen from around the beater shaft or planetary action.

A stand mixer can lose up to a 1/4 cup of oil before it needs to be serviced.

It is recommended to run the mixer on speed 10 for 2 minutes in order to redistribute oil back into the motor. In order to prevent future occurences, this is recommended to be done every 3 weeks if mixer is not being used.

Beater keeps falling out. The plastic thing at the top of the beater inside the mixer needs to be replaced. Where can I get the part?


Sunbeam 2366 stand mixer -- Front view: mixer-0-small.JPG -- 0d345a3.jpg-- image of the "beater clip": mixer-1-small.JPG -- notice the wear on the plastic clip --8982711.jpg -- image of the "modified" beater: mixer-2-small.JPG - I took a paper clip an wound very tightly to the smallest diameter (notice it covers the entire section to prevent slippage) and then put one wrap around the "top knot" to increase diameter --d67ddea.jpg -- image of the back of the front cover: mixer-3-small.JPG - notice the broken clip at the top. I used a wide scrapper blade to separate the cover from the main body. 3297c2c.jpg----

KitchenAid KSM90 motor runs, but beaters don't turn


I feel your pain. I own a new Kitchenaid, and for some reason they changed some of the metal gears from metal to plastic on the newer models. I suspect it was to make it quieter. But they strip out. Happily, the replacement gears they sell are metal, and once replaced will last a lifetime.

You will either need to replce them yourself, of find a repair shop.

Regarding the Sunbeam Mixmaster (model 2346): How do I remove the front cover of the mixer so that I may reallign or replace the beater gears?


Pry the beater release button out with a screwdriver. There are two screws underneath it and one under the motor housing between the the beater holes. This will allow you to remove the chrome front cover, but not the motor and drive assembly. Getting to the part that contains the gears requires complete disassembly of the mixer. It is not designed for service, and requires patience and a variety of tools to disassemble.

It has a metal worm gear and plastic drive gears. If the beaters are out of alignment, then one or both of the plastic gears are stripped and the mixer is junk. Repair plus shipping costs equals the price of a new mixer. This is the weak point of these mixers and a fundamental flaw in an otherwise robust and sturdy design. It is definitly not the same mixer *********** bought 30 years ago.

Beaters don't turn


You should try to replace the beater turners or try to fix the problem that causes the beater turners not to work.
