The cord has a short and I need to replace it
Hi, this is a very simple process. I don't know if the cord is a 2 prong or 3 with the ground, but it makes no difference. You should have screws around the perimeter of the mixer that you need to take loose to separate the half's. I am assuming the cord is built into the mixer, if not please correct me. The end of the cord will be connected to the on/off control, may it be a trigger type or slide or what ever it has. You will have either a black wire which is hot, connected to the switch so the switch can break the connection to turn the mixer on and off. The other wire may be white which is neutral connected to another wire in the mixer, you will see this. If it has a ground, 3 prong, it will be green and will show you where it connects. If it is just 2 prongs, the 2 wires may both be black and in this case you can connect them to either wire they are showing you. I don't believe the connections are soldered, they may be screw connections or wire nut connector's. If it would be easier for you, take the mixer with you to your hardware store such as Home Depot as they have many different cords to choose from, and you will get help in the electrical section to make sure you have all you need. Just take your time and put the wires back in the same way as the old cord was wired. If the cord is a detachable cord, take it with you and match it with one that has the same connections and 120 volts. You do not have to buy a Black and Decker cord to do this. There are many cords that will do the job just as good if not better. Keep me posted if you need my help.
