    Yes, the same. It freezes up, pops the lid. The thing churns and churns but the drink just comes out cold, not even icy.

    Any tips?

    Same problem. I have a disappointed 12 year-old. Why release a product, so poorly designed, that will not work?

  • squiggles_59 Dec 28, 2008

    We have the same problems, tried several different drinks, non freeze.
    The first made the lid pop, I think it is because we waited to long to turn on the mixer.
    My disappointed 14yo wants his money back!

I had the same problem, it happens with diet or reduced sugar drinks. The manual says don't use them and it is right. Try normal old teeth rotting full sugar cordial or soft drink and it works beautifully.

My sunbeam electric kettle will not work

I can sympathise, I have had three go wrong in the last few months! In every case it was the element, I suspect it will be the same with yours and there is not much you can do except replace the kettle.

If the plug has a fuse, you could try changing it, but it didn't make any difference with mine. Try to keep the element free of scale, that shortens their life even more. I don't believe it is worth buying an expensive kettle, they don't seem to last any longer than the cheapies.

I plugged it in and the fan does not work. it shuts its self down after 2 minutes or so. I has been sitting in my garage for a year.

Try to take the front off of the unit. You can reach your hand inside the blower chamber and reach for the blower cage. Try to turn it by hand, it may possibly have a dirt dobber nest or something lodged into one of the fan blades keeping it from turning. Sometimes on the newer units, the motors are so weak, they need a little help starting if they have been sitting a while. Hopefully this will solve your problem.

Sunbeam portable air condition..all things work..compressor runs..but now cold air sunbeam portable air conditoner mode KY25 ..9,000 btu I have it since 2005..I've used it for one's been...

sometimes storing an AC for long periods of time will allow the coolant that it uses to seep out, leaving you with an AC that seems to work, but won'tr cool any air. If you have a user's manual (or can find one) check to see what type of coolant it uses (if it's freon or something else) and if you can refill it. If you can refill the coolant, that should resolve your problem ... if not, you might be able to take it to a repair shop and have them do it for you. Good luck!

I have a goodman Air conditioning unit CKL49-1. The fan motor connects to the top lid. Recently the metal cracked and broke and the fan fell down inside. I purchassed a new lid mounted the fan back on to...

Sounds like it is overloading and tripping the circuit breaker (that thing that pops up). More than likely when the fan fell down it stopped the blade from turning which caused the motor to overheat, melting the windings insulation which caused them to short out which causes the circuit breaker to trip.

Sorry, you are going to have to get a new motor to go with the new lid.........

Will not agitate or spin . Repariman diagnosed it as motor problem (only 14 months old!), but upon replacing the motor unit, still does not agitate or spin. I think the lid switch is ok - when I lift the...

There are a couple of reasons for the washing machine not to spin. Since the reason is not specific we need to to perform a couple of steps to determine the reason of the no spin.
Depending on the models the earlier models had brake shoes in the bottom of the machine. If you tip the machine over you can see them. If they are worn, they don't engage so may need replacing these were about 20 year old machines one of the problems with the newer models is that they have a cut out switch when you lift the lid if this is broken the machine wont engage in the spin cycle so it isn't an expensive part to replace that could be worth checking. A volt meter would quickly tell you if it was working or not it is just a basic switch the other problem that happens is that the pump is blocked i.e. some hair and may need cleaning. They stop if they are blocked. I think they have a sensor, but once unblocked they are fine. So that is a couple of ideas to start with.

I have a Sunbeam Slurples machine and I just can't get it to work. It keeps freezing the blades to the inner cyclinder. I am really disappointed. Please help.

Hi, I also have a Sunbeam Surples machine, mine works fine if you use real Coke, Sprite etc... but also found that the blades are frezzing to the inner cyclinder if I use a syrup based soft drink such as Soda Stream.

Amana window air conditioner unit keeps freezing.

There are 2 causes for freezing. Lack of air flow or shortage of Freon. After defrosting, start the machine and look for an even pattern of water condensing on all the coils. If the cooling is even and complete on all the coils, see if the coil is so dirty that it restricts the air flow. The fan blade can build up dirt and need to be cleaned, too. If the cooling (condensation) is not complete, you have a Freon problem. Some of it could have leaked out or the metering tubes could be partially pllugged up (on the inside of them).
