Problem with retractable cord on hand mixer


Hi Sandy

Retractable cord mechanisms, after a while, can get a bit dodgy, especially with things like mixers where there may have been years of accumulated batter, frosting, bread dough, or what have you that got splattered on the cord and subsequently sucked back up into the retractor reel. They typically have an inertial ratchet that lets you pull out, but sticks on retract, unless you pull the cord all the way out to reset.

Before starting, cardinal rule is:
Always unplug before working on electrical stuff. If it's already acting up, you don't need to discover a short or a bit of bare insulation by shocking yourself or starting a fire.

With it unplugged:
  1. Pull the cord out as far as it would normally go. Depending on the exterior, give it a wipedown with a cleaning towel and a surface cleaner like simple green or windex. See if it's looking like it's coughing crumbs out of the cord hole as you pull.
  2. Let it retract all the way, then pull all the way back out. After you have a bit of cord out, pull it a short ways at higher speed, then let it retract back in, solid quick pull, slow retract. You're trying to get the ratchet to re-engage if it's gotten stuck or gummed up.
  3. If you can't get any response the above, you may have to consider whether you want to take it apart. Use a search engine to look for 'My mixer make/model service manual', or 'How to replace cord for my make/model mixer'. Likely as not, someone can go through replacement, which will give you the steps to open it up and just see if it needs cleaning. And, if something has just broken, you'll be in a position to replace it.
  4. A final thought - if it's working fine, and it's just an issue of the retracting cord pulling at the mixer as you work, you can also use a temporary cord-hold. You don't want to do anything that could pinch or cut the cord, but something like a medium sized binder clip, perhaps with a fold of tower inside , can be clipped onto the cord right where it emerges from the mixer, after you have enough cord out. The binder clips are cheap, pretty strong. and not likely to pop off without a deliberate re-opening when you're done.
Good Luck!

Kitchenaid mixer K4-B cord replacement


Well you did well for never taking a mixer apart before, the only thing i would say is that you made a serious mistake with the lithium grease. KA uses a food safe grease that will not get anybody sick when it drips into the food being mixed. As to replacing the cord on current mixers (since 1978) all is done right at the rear opening now.

The cord has a short and I need to replace it


Hi, this is a very simple process. I don't know if the cord is a 2 prong or 3 with the ground, but it makes no difference. You should have screws around the perimeter of the mixer that you need to take loose to separate the half's. I am assuming the cord is built into the mixer, if not please correct me. The end of the cord will be connected to the on/off control, may it be a trigger type or slide or what ever it has. You will have either a black wire which is hot, connected to the switch so the switch can break the connection to turn the mixer on and off. The other wire may be white which is neutral connected to another wire in the mixer, you will see this. If it has a ground, 3 prong, it will be green and will show you where it connects. If it is just 2 prongs, the 2 wires may both be black and in this case you can connect them to either wire they are showing you. I don't believe the connections are soldered, they may be screw connections or wire nut connector's. If it would be easier for you, take the mixer with you to your hardware store such as Home Depot as they have many different cords to choose from, and you will get help in the electrical section to make sure you have all you need. Just take your time and put the wires back in the same way as the old cord was wired. If the cord is a detachable cord, take it with you and match it with one that has the same connections and 120 volts. You do not have to buy a Black and Decker cord to do this. There are many cords that will do the job just as good if not better. Keep me posted if you need my help.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

I cannot get the cord on my Dualit mixer to come out very far.


The cord has twisted inside the housing and is now binding or it has slipped out ofthe housing and is wedged between the cord housing and the case. If it is still within warranty, send it in, if not, you'll need to carefully open the housing to get the cord into the cord housing.

Need to replace cord on vintage Sunbeam Mixmaster Junior


For mixmaster junior, but should be relevent to many old sunbeams:

That's not the power cord going to the speed switch. You don't need to get those screws off.
To replace the cord:
Cut the old power cord near where it enters the blender.
remove the two front screws, pull off front housing.
remove 1/4" nuts found in recesses of exposed front plate.
pull speed handle out far enough to get a screwdriver under exposed front plate, and pry gently. It'll come off as it's a friction fit.
cooling fan blade is now visible, you need to remove it.
pry up gently on the teeth attaching it to the motor shaft.
Work your way around the 4 sets of teeth, it'll come off. Don't lose the two washers.
unscrew the electrical contacts.
take off the speednuts holding the brush assembly in place.
gently pull up on the brush assembly with a needle nose, until it comes out.
now remove the screws holding the motor coils in place. They're the same ones the speednuts attached to, and have hex heads you can get at with a needlenose.
once those are out, pull on the motor coils gentle, and wiggle them out of the housing.
You'll see the stub of the old power cord at the back of it.
Get a round replacement wire of the right diameter, thread it through the cord hole in the blender, and connect it up to the coils.
-I had to drill the power cord hole 1/16" larger than it was to get a modern cord to fit through it.
On the stub of the old cord, you'll see a metal ring which serves to anchor the cord in blender body. remove it (screwdriver + needlenose and pry), and attach to new cord at the righ position.
Put everything back together, being careful not to bust the carbon brushes.
Congrats, you now have a functional blender with a cord that won't try to electrocute you.

Disc stuck in unit


Unplug power cord. Plug back power and keep pressing the eject button repeatedly while the unit starts up. Do this a couple of times, if you succeed in activating the eject before the system starts reading the disk, then it will eject.

If you do not get the disk out in this way, the only alternative is taking the unit apart, and removing disk from inside manually.
