Sunbeam Mixmaster Model 2358-broken-trying to dissasemble

I am trying to dissasemble my Sunbeam Mixmaster Model 2358. After many years of faithful use the right beater is loose and the beaters heat each other when it is turned on. Since I use my mixer 4 to 5 times a week for cookies, I had to go buy another, but I think it might be a simple problem to fix this one. I certainly can use two Mixers with the volume of cookies I sell. The problem is that I can't seem to find the way to take the cover off. I found that I can pivit the front facing that has the Sunbeam logo on it and I can pop off the dial on the variable speed setting. I was thinking of taking the mixer to Lowes and seeing if someone in the tool department could show me the next step or the tools I need. I sure could use some suggestions. I know there are repair shops that can handle this, but I like repairing things and would like to see if I save some money and fix it first. Help!

It is the worm gears attached to the front of the motor in the housing I had the same problem on the heritage series. The parts are plastic so inevtiably they wear out.

SOURCE: Sunbeam Mixmaster Heritage Series Model 2350 speed problem

The speed control on the back is simply a variable resistance potentiometer, the same thing that controls the volume on older amplifiers. The output current to the motor is supplied by the printed circuit board in the bottom of the unit. This allows gradual increases in speed to avoid over-torquing the motor on speedup. Even the poshy-posh-posh mixers do this.

At least it still works. The most common problem is the cheap plastic drive gears that strip out with a mild cookie dough, this jams the beaters together and requires burial-at-dumpster.

SOURCE: Sunbeam mixmaster jammed, will not

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!

SOURCE: Sunbeam Heritage Mixmaster Won't Tilt

Hi

Most of them have a button to push that releases the mixer head to tip back. Sometimes the buttons stick and will not release. That picture looks like you are using the Heritage model.

You have 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; tighten 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).

Please do accept the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Mixmaster motor won't spin. Leads from circuit board to motor read 119 volts at the motor. voltage does not vary when speed knob is rotated but does turn off & on. 275 W sunbeam mixmaster, white...


so far I determined the thermal fuse had blown. I jumped around it but can get replacement. Now the motor runs full speed when turned on. I suspect the pot turned by the speed knob is bad. Having trouble locating a replacement circuit board.
