Question about Sunbeam 2370 MixMaster Series Stand Mixer

1 Answer

No speed control, runs flat out

Hi, our Mixmaster is a few years old we were given it as a wedding present in 1966. It is a Model A12
It has worked perfectly until a few days ago when the speed control stopped functioning and it now only at full speed.

I have cleaned and spayed the speed area with contact cleaner, but so far no change.
Is there something that can be replaced?

Thank you, Derek.

Are you in Australia?

You can buy the entire unit for $132 AU dollar.

Please look at the following picture and see are they the same control layout.

Since the motor is still working well. You can pop the "S" Sunbeam button out and un-screw the knob out for a quick inspection.

The plastic on the center (stem) screw is probably cracked.

When you turn the dial,it does not rotate the center (stem) control shaft.

Strong epoxy mix will bind the broken plastic knob back together.

=======

If all else fail then I will recommend an external electrical control unit call AC regulator unit.

It's use in-line between the AC outlet and your Sunbeam A12 mixer.

It's not a pretty unit but you can hide it under the counter top.

I will look up the price for you later.

I hope you can do a good cleaning and get the Sunbeam back in service.

My sunbeam mixmaster is about 40 years old and suddenly stopped working


The running capacitor finally died. I used to be their factory service tech. You can change it easily by removing the back knob and the handle. The screws are under the silver buttons. The capacitor looks like a 3/4 x 1 1/4' tube with a small nib sticking out each end.

I have a Sunbeam Model A24 Mixmaster which will only operate at fast speed , I.E. the motor speed control no longer functions. Is it the capacitor? I have checked the points and they appear good.


G'day tandjcox842, did you get an answer to your question? If not, and you'd like to offload your mixmaster, I may be intersted. I've got one that works well but is missing parts. Regardz, Perry.

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.

Question regarding KitchAid mixer, Model K45ss. excessive noise.


Maeveda, Congratulations on your 30 year old KA mixer! Was it a wedding present? Do you still have the K45SS Parts List? If not, you can download a PDF version from the KA website. Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number (in your case, use K45SSW select Parts List (1) and then check to see it this matches your mixer). You can check on page 4 & 5 for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. It will be messy but gratifying. Once apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc.
As far as parts go, here are four potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com (this vendor the best prices for my wife mixer's parts, but sadly they had to back order them, which was disappointing to SWMBO). Prices for the same part vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping. Here's a link to a site that details the disassembly and replacement of a mixer's grease, which might be helpful, too. http://www.foodonthefood.com/food_on_the_food/2009/04/how-to-repair-a-kitchenaid-mixer-yourself.html
Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA

It was probably a Kenwood Major - the best of the lot - if it was a wedding present. You can get one on ebay or kenwood.co.uk

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.

My sunbeam mixmaster is stuck on one speed - fast!


it will be the motor suppression capacitor fitted accross the speed control. When they fail and go short circuit, sunbeams run at their highest speed. Remove it and replace and all will be well.
