Question about Sunbeam 2350 Heritage Series Mixer

1 Answer

Beaters Misaligned My beaters, at least where they lock into, are misaligned so that when one tries to operate the mixer the beaters will knock against each other. How do I realign these? When I look into where they lock in, instead of the slots making a "plus sign" and an "X", they're the same. please help!

    My mixer just shakes violently when the beaters are in. The bowl doesn't turn, it just shakes. Do you think that is due to the beaters being misaligned?

If this is one of the later-model Sunbeams, the housing has an upper half and a lower half. By removing the upper half, you can see the motor and the gear train. You will have to take out one of the beater gear posts and reinsert it to align properly. I suggest you look at both gear posts and check for worn or broken teeth. In which case, you will need to replace the bad part[s].

Older model Sunbeams have a gearbox housing that mounts onto the front of the motor housing. When you remove the gearbox housing, you will see the gear posts inside. Check for worn or broken teeth and replace as necessary. To insure proper alignment when reattaching the gearbox housing, align the two gears relative to each other then push the gearbox housing back onto the motor housing. The motor spindle will slightly turn both gearposts simutaneously during this process but will keep the proper alignment. You may have to repeat this process a number of times until you get it right.

    how do you get to the gear box housing? ours does not have a top and a bottom. The top part of the mixer that can lean back seems to all be one unit. I can pry off the small black cone off the back and remove screws, and remove the 2 screws on bottom, but i still cant get inside it

    but how do I get into the housing on the older beaters? ours doesnt have a top half that comes off, just one unit.. Ive removed as many screws as I can gain access to: 6, but still nothing comes apart

    I haven't actually worked on that model, but here is my guess. On the front, see if you can remove an aluminum cover plate that is stuck on with rubber cement. Pry it off gently with the edge of a knife. Under that cover plate will be a screw that holds on the handle assembly. Behind the handle assembly will be the access to the beater gear posts. The gears themselves may be held in place with recessed screws that can be seen when they are rotated into position. Removing the screws will allow the beater posts to slide down, out of the gears. Then the gears can can be teased out. To install new gears, reverse the process. If Sunbeam did their job right, the beater posts will be properly aligned when installed with the gear screws aimed straight out towards you.

How do you eject the beaters on a hand mixer

Very Carefully! Generally, depending on the make and model there are two small ejection buttons near the beaters portion. Press HARD to make the inside locks disengage the beaters and they will fall out.

The beaters will not stay up in my Oster stand mixmaster. The eject lever will not lock them in. Can it be fixed? Or could it be that I need new beaters because they are worn out and do not fit in

wild guess turn beater as you push in to allow the beater to engage the drive, a little like gears meshing. You should be able to feel it lock into the drive.

I accidentally touched the beaters of my Oster food center mixer with a rubber spatula, & beaters jammed. No apparent damage to beaters, but at high speed the beaters now knock each other & I think one of...

Generally the problem is only the beaters. They may no longer be aligned in a perpendicular line and are slightly bent, just enough to make them click. You may have to replace the beaters to get satisfaction.

My kitchenaid hand mixer beaters knock into each other as they spin. can i fix this?

This happened to me also, and it was because one of the beaters was no longer straight (bent just slightly, but enough). I found a replacement beater at a thrift store, and now it is fine. There were several replacement beaters at the thrift store... I'm guessing because many of the KA hand mixers are starting to die (the beaters don't 'click' in anymore).

I need replacement beaters for an old GE hand mixer.

I bought an old GM mixer no. 30M47 with no beaters yesterday at the Salvation Army store. The beaters I have for a newish (ugly) GE hand held beater fit perfectly. I suggest taking your old beater to a store that sells new GE handheld beaters and seeing if the new beaters fit. If anyone reads this and wants me to look up the number of the new ugly beater for them, please say so before I take it to the Salvation Army.. : )

Kitchenaid k45ss won't turn on

if you remove the top you will find a tiny fuse wrapped in a black band on the left side from the back. It connects two white wires which power the top-side motor brush. Most likely this needs to be replaced. You can check by bypassing it with roach clips or a copper wire. Unplug the machine first and be careful!
