Blender motor works, but mixer doesn't

I don't know why but I just took out my mixer today and the motor was running for the blender part of the machine, but the mixers were not. I had just recently used it so I don't know what's going on? Can you help me?

I'm from Colombia my blender buy it in the US, when I use it here in Colombia does not increase the speed always remains constant, not increase, because it can be?

Nothing different between blenders working in US then Colombia. Your blender is defective. Bad luck you bought it in US and never tested before taking it to Colombia. Well, actually a blender can work with just one speed!

Sunbeam hand blender won't rotate

Your blender probably needs replacement.

Once the blender is attached, how do you start the mixer?

You start it by pushing the switch lever forward, and you need to hold it there for as long as you want it to run. This is a momentary mode and is the only way to run the immersion blender.

I seem to have lost the instruction manual for my mixer. I would like to use the immersion blender, but I can't figure out how to attach it to the mixer body. The shaft on the blender is too short to...

The blender does not attach to any of the two holes for the whisks.
You need to push back the sliding cover in the center, bottom part between and behind where the whiskers attach. This will uncover a third attachment possibility, where you insert the blender and twist it a quarter turn into place.

Blender attachment does not work

It could be the drive belts. There are three. One for the motor to the belt drive. one from belt drive to bowl mixer spindle. one from belt drive to mixer spindle. mine started to do the same thing. I ordered the belts from Bosch.

Noisy, high pitched whirring MUM6622UC/01 Bosch Universal Mixer

My wife's bosch mixer had a similar problem but it was a very loud grating problem. I talked to the bosch dealer in Utah, sorry, I've forgotten which one-- the one that does the repair. This is typically what happens: the seal on the blender wears out, which results in fluids from the blender dripping into the motor, onto the upper motor bearing. So, the upper bearing corrodes and is what is causing the bearing failure and the loud noise (needed hearing protection to operate it). I was lamenting the cost and time it would take to ship the mixer both directions (not actually that much compared to the price of the mixer), and he said he would sell me the bearing and the bottom replacement part of the blender that was leaking. So, I did the repair myself, but it took awhile, and I had to build a puller for the bearing to get it off the shaft, modifying a harbor freight gear puller. But it now is back to new. So, it was a success for me, but i would recommend anyone who isn't very mechanical to just send it off to Utah (again, I forgot the place, I think they talk about the shop in one of the other posts), and you will have a better than new machine.

Oster Kitchen Center won't hold a steady speed

My wifes Oster Kitchen Center slowed down and I think finally stopped. I say I think it did because I took it apart two years ago and am finally finding the time to get it back together. I cleaned it, checked the brushes on the motor(all of this is in the base unit with the control buttons on it. The upper blender/beater arm has no electrics in it.) The brushes were coated with some kind of dried crusty stuff which was keeping them from contacting the motor.I put it back together and tried it but it only hummed and did not move.
I took it apart again, this time everything came out. Motor, electric wiring plus the metal gearbox attached to the motor which drives the blender and the upper arm. I took the transmission apart (it's attached to the motor in the base unit) and found the gears in it were so gummed up with who knows what. Probably everything that leaked out of the blender.
You see, what happens is that the seal between the blender black base and the glass jar started to leak after a few years but we don't notice it. Maybe we did but we cleaned it and we thought it was all good. But the liquid can leak down into the bottom unit around the drive teeth and that little square drive that the blender locks onto. And then it goes into the gearbox and the motor. So it is a major job to clean it. Since I don't have a manual for disassembling the lower base unit, I'm just putting it back together. I cleaned all the gunk out, put some grease on the gears and the gearbox is working better but I fear not perfect. It is 30 years old!! So unless you take it apart yourself or find an appliance repair shop (is there such a place anymore?) it might not be worth the effort. But it is do-able. How long have you got?

Bottom Slide Cover (Part 2a in the manual)

See the description for the speed problem and repositioning of the slidere at this link. The slider should snap back in place easily if everything is ok. The slider also operates a switch inside the mixer. This switch is intended to only allow you to run on full power when using the hand blender. You may need to open up the mixer to check this switch is not stuck in the activated position permanently. Otherwise consider the description of the speed problem in the link.
