Zaczac,
There are two probable causes for this. One is that the insulation in the motor has broken down. This is definitely an unsafe condition, and unless you are a motor repair specialist there is nothing you can do.
The other cause is an accumulation of graphite around the brush holders. Fixing this would require pulling down the motor and cleaning the graphite away. This usually happens with motors that have done a lot of work.
It is normal that by the time the brushes have worn so much that the dust causes shorting the motor needs to be serviced.

Read this to understand what is required to pull the motor down and to reset the speed control:

Just cleaning the motor housing out thoroughly may get the machine running. I make no guarantees though. If the motor insulation is failing the motor will remain unsafe.

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.

My sunbeam mixmasters turntable is not turning


Hi Jill. Your mixer's gears are made of plastic and can't really handle heavy loads such as cookie and bread doughs. Contact Sunbeam Corp. to locate a parts place near you. You'll need to replace at least the large gear that turns the turntable base, possibly the worm gear that turns the large gear too. Grease these gears when you re-install the parts. You'll have to cut a couple of cable ties to get the machine apart enough to do the work. If this solution has assisted you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45.
