Question about Sunbeam 2485 MixMaster Series Hand Mixer

1 Answer

Sunbeam hand mixer. One beater not working

My Sunbeam 2485 has a great moter but one of the beaters does not turn. I had taken the mixer apart and discovered a small metal spring pin was not attached. This pin is similar looking to the metal pin in a clothes pin. I believe this pin, when attached, turns the gears that turn the beaters. I have unsuccessfully tried to find a diagram of the mixer's inside construction so I could repair it myself. My question is where does this pin belong that turns the gears, that turns the beaters? Thanks for any insight!

That spring does not turn the beaters. It is part of the beater release assembly. Probably one of the gears is worn.

Beaters will not turn


This will definitely be a problem with the actual beater gearbox unit inside the front and under the top handle of the machine.

I've had my wifes one apart and it was difficult at best to even do that, so my recommendation is to take it back to the shop if it is still in the warranty period.
If not, take it to a small machine mechanic and get a Quote for repair before anything is done as it's quite likely that the repair will cost as much as a new mixer.

I have a Kitchenaid 550 watt 6 qt. stand mixer model #KB26GIXER. I tried to use it this morning and couldn't get the beater blade to lock in place. Isn't there supposed to be a spring and washer...


There is only one pin on the beater shaft to hold the beater in place.
There is no spring or washer on the shaft.

To Attach Flat Beater,Wire Whip, or Spiral Dough Hook, simply
1. Slip flat beater on beater shaft.

2. Turn beater to right, hooking beater over the pin on shaft.

Beaters won't turn bowl still does turn


I just took mine apart for this same issue. What i found was the plastic beater drive gears have been stripped by the motor worm gear. I am currently looking for these parts to replace them.

The mixer turns on, motor is running, but the beaters are not turning


Most likely what has happened is that the gears have stripped. The gears inside are plastic but the spindle is metal. When a dough is too heavy and gets caught up in the beaters it tends to eat them. If you take it apart, you will probably find that the gears are shot.
The fix...order new gears, tear down the mixer and replace them. These gears really should have been metal! Check the sunbeam web site for authorized repair places to get your parts.

1. Remove the ejector button...it should pop out with a flat head screw driver. There is a small phillips head screw under it. Take it out.

2. Take out the screws on the bottom. This should allow the face plate on the mixer to slide off, allowing your motor assembly to then be pulled forward.

3. Remove the mounting brackets/shock absorbers...they are rubber u shaped items that hold the motor in. Once that is done, remove the black plastic bracket on the bottom; two phillip head screws. Then unscrew the two long screws underneath. they hold on the speed control electric board as well as the top to the gear box. Pop the silver fasteners on the side of the gear box and you are in. the gears should lift out. put the new ones in and do the whole thing in reverse.

hope this helps.

Need interior diagram of Sunbeam MixMaster Model 2486


Here's the solution. The spring controls the beater eject button. The spring is mounted on the metal shaft and is oriented so that the straight side of the spring rests along the white plastic part adjacent to the shaft, and the curved side of the spring points outward and downward so that it will rest against the case when the unit is reassembled. See photo.

Turntable does not turn. Motor runs. Beaters work.


I have the same one, and the turn table has never turned on it's own. from looking at the bottom of the stand, i think the mixers are supposed to turn the bowl, so i just give it a little turn, and the mixers kinda take care of the rest. BTW, i got 2 sets of beaters with mine and i dont know what the second set is for, do you? contact me at rawemo@hotmail.com

Sunbeam Stand Mixer


For whatever reason, Sunbeam must have decided to cut on costs and used a plastic gear to transfer power to the beater. I had my Sunbeam for two years and the plastic gear decided to break. End of mixer. You cannot find a replacement part anywhere. It is the last sunbeam I will buy.

Sunbeam 2484 Beaters won't stay engaged.


In taking apart my same beater, I'm trying to figure out the alignment of the spring which provides the tension so that the beaters won't fall out. I'd assume that your spring has mis-aligned. You need to take it apart (3 Philips screws), and carefully pull the assembly apart. I'll bet your spring falls out like mine did. I'm trying to find a schematic from Sunbeam to see how the spring should align.
