Question about Sunbeam Heritage 2346 Stand Mixer

1 Answer

Beaters don't turn

The beaters have stopped turning. Sometimes I can get them to engage but it is obvious that something is slipping inside and they are not turning at the appropriate rate. Sounds normal. Bowl motor is fine.
How do you get this thing apart? What might be wrong with it?

Thanks, Joe

    I have the same problem and I took it apart. I noticed that the beater turners plastic gears are worn out and need to be replaced. I have not found a supplier for this part yet.

You should try to replace the beater turners or try to fix the problem that causes the beater turners not to work.

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.

Beaters will not turn


This will definitely be a problem with the actual beater gearbox unit inside the front and under the top handle of the machine.

I've had my wifes one apart and it was difficult at best to even do that, so my recommendation is to take it back to the shop if it is still in the warranty period.
If not, take it to a small machine mechanic and get a Quote for repair before anything is done as it's quite likely that the repair will cost as much as a new mixer.

Need beaters for a black and decker SM100 mixer


I searched for replacement beaters for Blacker & Decker SM-100 type 1 (SM100) electric stand mixer for years. I found the Sunbeam Mixmaster Mixer Replacement Beaters for stand mixers, item 4955, at a large Ace hardware store. They were priced over $16.00, so you may consider buying a new stand mixer. The beaters are the correct length, snap in and grip correctly even though the ends are curved like a half ball rather than flat as the originals. The beaters turns well but I haven't tested them with the bowl because I need to find the turn table that I have in storage. The beater set was design ed to replace parts for Sunbeam stand models 2355-1, 2356-1 and 2360-2.

Wobbling on inside of mixer when beater is rotating


If the beaters are hitting the bottom of the bowl, try adjusting the upper-head stop-screw located near the top of the lower stand--it determines how far the head drops down and therefore, the height of the beaters above the bowl bottom. Hope this helps!

The mixer motor runs good but beaters turn slowly and will not turn when the beaters are under load. Is this a clutch, gear or what? Any ideas? Do you think it can be fixed?


I found out by marking the shaft and gears with a magic marker that the main shaft that drives the sun gear was slipping. My cure was to drill a 5/32 hole a 1/4 inch down through shaft and drive a 5/32 roll pin through it and it solved the problem. See my picture.

Turntable does not turn. Motor runs. Beaters work.


I have the same one, and the turn table has never turned on it's own. from looking at the bottom of the stand, i think the mixers are supposed to turn the bowl, so i just give it a little turn, and the mixers kinda take care of the rest. BTW, i got 2 sets of beaters with mine and i dont know what the second set is for, do you? contact me at rawemo@hotmail.com

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!

Sunbeam hand mixer. One beater not working


That spring does not turn the beaters. It is part of the beater release assembly. Probably one of the gears is worn.
