Question about Sunbeam 2346 Heritage MixMaster Series Stand Mixer
That picture looks like you are using the Heritage model, which is the one I just fixed for myself.
I had to remove two parts in order to get access to the piece that was causing the problem:
1) The "torpedo" shaped knob that sticks out from the mixer speed dial;
2) The speed dial itself
Both of these pieces clip-in, and can be removed with a screwdriver by pressing in on one of the hooks that hold them in place.
After these two pieces are removed look for a small washer right below the motor (it is sitting on top of the upper portion of a screw) -- in my case this washer had come loose; I tightened it with a 1/4 size wrench (you can also tighten it by hand to release the tilt, it will probably become loose in the future if you don't tighten it further, but if you don't have the necessary tools this will at least allow you to get your tilt unlocked).
On another note, after tightening this washer I also noticed that the tilt release had become easier to use -- previously I found that I had to press the tilt release button very hard to get the tilt to unlock.
I hope this helps!
