Question about Sunbeam 2346 Heritage MixMaster Series Stand Mixer
Seems the wife dropped a spoon in while it was running, and now the gear for the right beater is stripped. Took a while to figure out how to take it apart. Anybody know where I can get the replacement gear? I looked all over the web, not many internal parts listed anywhere. Just need the gear, or gear box. thanks for any advice you can give. I also have a 450 Watt Sunbeam stand mixer and absent-mindedly left the wooden mixing spoon on the edge of the bowl and walked away. The spoon fell in and now the beater gear on the right is stripped. If you know where I can get the replacement gear and how to install it, please let me know. I've promised cookies for two graduation parties and now this -- AARGH!
It is terminal. This is the fatal design flaw of these mixers. The gears are made of soft plastic and strip easily. Even the gear housing is plastic that is either glued or melted together to make it unserviceable. I have never suceeded in finding the part from either Sunbeam or one of the many appliance repair places on the web (who charge the cost of a new mixer for repair). Sunbeam does not repair them; if it is determined to have malfunctioned due to quality or design while under warranty, it is simply replaced with a new one. I had mine replaced under warranty twice, each time they sent me a new one complete with extra bowls and beaters. Now I have three sets of bowls and beaters and no functioning mixer.
