Sunbeam Mixmaster 250W tilt stuck

I NEED HELP!!!! My mixmaster is stuck. I can't tilt the head back and I've tried numorous times. I've only used it twice, and it's the third time it got stuck. I'm sitting here on the computer trying to find an answer - as the mixmaster is sitting on my kitchen bench looking at me with my chocolate icing in the bowl that I can't access!!

  5. Now you can tighten the nut on the vertical bolt at the lower inside of the mixer using a small screwdriver to push the nut around till it is tight and then add some loctite (or nail polish) to stop it coming undone.

  7. The tilt mechanism should now work. To reassemble align the off indicator on the top of the machine with the OFF on the speed control ring and push it back on. Push on the dome shaped cover and you are finished.

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).

On another note, after tightening this washer you may also notice that the tilt release had become easier to use -- previously you may have found that you have to press the tilt release button very hard to get the tilt to unlock.


Please do accept the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

SOURCE: my Sunbeam mixmaster bowl won't turn, how can I

I believe that this particular model is supposed to have the bowl mix separately. I have removed the black piece from the bottom of the larger bowl in order to allow manual spinning. If I am able to figure out how to fix the bowl spinner I will make another post.

SOURCE: Sunbeam Mixmaster Heritage model Tilt mechanism

Theory: Its a screw at the joint that is lose.
Problem: If I held mine upside down it released but wouldn't when right side up.
Partial solution (in progress): It took me an hour to disassemble the monster as I lost the "NUT" inside the motor - the nut is inside the motor case and attaches the lock-lever and a ground wire to the motor case. It makes some sense since it is a part that can strip out if it has to be tightened too many times by a gorilla - a nut is "easy" (relatively) to replace. Prevents you from having to buy a new one at least. Wish they would engineer this better.
Current status: I finally fished it out but have to put it back together now to prove my theory. You cant get into the motor case easily - but I found out that you don't have to get into the motor case if the screw is still semi-attached. I only had to undo the the base to get to the hinge. Then I could tighten the screw. I am an AMATURE - so at your won risk. They make these things so you need to send them in. This most likely seems to be what I have to do now.

Cant seem to get the mixer attachment off its well and truley stuck tried all the suggestions in the instruction manuel but it just wont budge help!!!


The best way is to wrap a hot towel around the beater head, you have to get it hot to melt the "Gunk" that is acting like glue, I have actually had to use a torch once or twice, you can polish the stainless steel up again but you have to keep it away from the powder coated finish or it will bubble up and ruin the finish. The best but longest way is a hair dryer and a squirt gun, get it hot squirt it heat again, do it once or twice usually loosens it up and you can get the beater off, once you do use a non stick spray in the beater head before you use it and do not ever leave your beater on the mixer in the future.

Mixer won't tilt back


You may need to remove the head from the base to find the problem.  This is a simple procedure, and is easily reversed, so if it doesn't help you, you can just put it back and take it to a repair shop later.
To remove the head:

First, make sure to unplug the mixer unit!
Next, turn the unit upside down.  Inside the neck, you will see a screw.  Use a slotted screwdriver to loosen (turn counter-clockwise) the screw a few turns.  This will release the pivot pin on which the head swivels.
Push the pin out from one side using a long, slender implement (a screwdriver, pen, etc.).  With the pin removed, the head will lift off of the base, and you may be able to determine the problem from there.
Best of luck!

I hope this helps. I found on mine that the rear screw on the "neck" had become slighty loosecousing the release to not fully disingage. I had to remove the dome shaped cap in the middle of the speed control knob, pops off fairly easy, to gain access to the nut to tighten it. Hard part was trying to hold the screw head still while I used a small screw driver and small hammer to tap the nut tight, very limited space between the "neck" and motor body.

Head tilting problem


OK,Where the mixer pivots there is an ajustment screw ( Flat head). Place a dime at the bottom of the bowl and make your adjustment carefully ( quarter turn at a time).Using the low speed only, adjust until the tip of the flat beater barely touches the dime.When your done, you'll be back in business.
