Question about Sunbeam 2351 Legacy Stand Mixer
We have this mixer for about 12 months without any issues. Just recently, cake batter climbs the beaters until it reaches the mixer body. We checked that the beaters were in the correct holes (red-in-red). This was a boxed Duncan Hines mix. Any ideas? This happened twice in a row.

There are screws under that metallic ring on the mixer head. Gently remove the metalic ring by pushing down on its edge with a screwdriver. Once the ring is removed the screws are exposed. Tighten each one and then again to make sure they are snug. If this doesn't work, you need a new grease gasket. Good luck.

The beaters might be fixable/replaceable but the bowl not spinning anymore is the more serious of the 2 problems. If this is several years old iit probably is more cost efective/simpler to replace the whole unit.
Good luck Loringh

Hi. Since I can't tell how much you have taken apart, I'll start from the beginning.
Remove the silver band, remove the top cover. At the top front of the mixer locate the transmission housing. If it's plastic, inspect it carefully for cracks around the screws and the body of this housing. If you find cracks, you have found the cheap plastic part that kitchenaid still installs in new mixers, and the cause of your trouble. They know that it's substandard but don't care enough to place a recall notice on this part. It may not please you to know that their replacement part is METAL like the original part should have been. "For the way it's made"! Indeed!
If you intend to repair the mixer yourself, go to kitchenaid's website, enter your model # and locate the parts list for your mixer. Download the drawings, they will assist you with your project.
Be sure to tell kitchenaid what you think of their cheap plastic part.
If this solution has assisted you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45
