How to disassemble a sunbeam 2370 mixer


To disassemble a sunbeam mixmaster 2370, find four plastic snappers arranged at 1, 5, 7 and 11 o'clock around the front circle of vents. They can be seen with the help of a good flashlight. un-snap them and the top and bottom shells will separate. From there on, it is clips and screws. Good luck!

Worn out beater gears


Soft plastic gears inside the machine from what I've read around the web, sorry but you'll need a complete new mixer.

I've had one apart to see just how fixable it might be, and it took me about 30 minutes to get the motor and gearbox into a position where they could be looked at. The gearbox had 2 stainless steel clips holding the top cover on and I didn't want to pry at those in case the cover snapped.

Not a lot gained from looking inside it sadly.

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.

  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.

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.

Beater keeps falling out. The plastic thing at the top of the beater inside the mixer needs to be replaced. Where can I get the part?


Sunbeam 2366 stand mixer -- Front view: mixer-0-small.JPG -- 0d345a3.jpg-- image of the "beater clip": mixer-1-small.JPG -- notice the wear on the plastic clip --8982711.jpg -- image of the "modified" beater: mixer-2-small.JPG - I took a paper clip an wound very tightly to the smallest diameter (notice it covers the entire section to prevent slippage) and then put one wrap around the "top knot" to increase diameter --d67ddea.jpg -- image of the back of the front cover: mixer-3-small.JPG - notice the broken clip at the top. I used a wide scrapper blade to separate the cover from the main body. 3297c2c.jpg----

Regarding the Sunbeam Mixmaster (model 2346): How do I remove the front cover of the mixer so that I may reallign or replace the beater gears?


Pry the beater release button out with a screwdriver. There are two screws underneath it and one under the motor housing between the the beater holes. This will allow you to remove the chrome front cover, but not the motor and drive assembly. Getting to the part that contains the gears requires complete disassembly of the mixer. It is not designed for service, and requires patience and a variety of tools to disassemble.

It has a metal worm gear and plastic drive gears. If the beaters are out of alignment, then one or both of the plastic gears are stripped and the mixer is junk. Repair plus shipping costs equals the price of a new mixer. This is the weak point of these mixers and a fundamental flaw in an otherwise robust and sturdy design. It is definitly not the same mixer *********** bought 30 years ago.
