Question about Hamilton Beach 125 Watts 62525 Hand Mixer

1 Answer

Used the mixer the other night it started to overheat and there was also this burnt smell, so I switched it off. A few days after I switched it on, it ran for a few seconds and then it sparked inside. Now its not working.

Hoe to reset a fuse on a mixer if there is one?


Did it smell bad and get very hot? If so, the motor is likely burnt out.

No power on kitchenaid mixer


Apart from checking a fuse, there is little more you can do. Did you notice a loss of power or burning smell the last time you used this? What make and model you have may help others identify a known problem with your machine.

Kind Regards, Dan.

Delonghi DSM7 Stand Mixer won't start after overheating. Is there a reset button?


take it in to an appliance repair shop for a proper diagnosis and quote but it is probably not worth repairing ( armature and brushes )

Mixer is still going but making a popping noise. Also has a burning smell - maybe a wiring problem?


HI.When the stand mixer produces a popping sound during mixing this problem has something to do with the motor.Motor has bossing on it.This might not be lubricated well and eventually lossen up.That's why it produces a popping sound.And with regard to the burnt smell might be on the coil of the motor's rotor or armature.Is the unit still functioning eventhough you smeeell burnt wire?Thank you for choosing FIXYA..

Ibought a hobart n 50 mixer took it oversaes used a 700 watt step down transformer to work it but after a few minutes it over heats is there a certain trans former to be used for it thank you


Assuming the mixer is overheating (and not the transformer), first check (with a multimeter) the voltage being supplied to the mixer from the transformer and ensure it is near 120V. Next, do you know the powerline frequency in the country you're in? The mixer (assuming it came from US) was designed for 60Hz US power. Many other countries use 50Hz, which could cause overheating if the mixer is used heavily. When 60Hz equipment is used on 50Hz power, it normally must be "derated" meaning it must be "underworked" as compared to its original capabilities.

Be sure to test the voltage going to the mixer, from the transformer, not only when the mixer is off, but be certain to test it in use, mixing whatever it is you are mixing -bottom line is to be sure the transformer continues to output 120V under load, with the mixer loading the transformer.

If all is OK with the power going to the mixer, then the problem is either in the mixer or the problem is how it is being used. What are you mixing with it - are you overworking the mixer? Does the mixer always overheat or only with particularly demanding jobs (cut down batch size in this case). What gear are you mixing in? If overheating in second gear, try mixing the same batch in first gear. If you have or can find a user's manual, it probably gives reccommended batch sizes for various typical products you might mix, be sure to follow these recommendations and "derate" for 50Hz if necessary.

It's possible the motor is weak from a long life spent working hard. A weak motor will draw excessive current and overheat. Where is the mixer hottest? The front at the gearbox/transmission or the rear where the motor is located? Maybe the transmission is lacking lubracation and needs a grease change. There a many possibilities for your mixer to overheat, and I hope this helps.

Pastry Chef said mixer will not start.


Depending on what you were mixing for 1/2 hour, you could have overheated & burned out the motor.

It is most likely a burnt out capacitor. They can be replaced for about £30, but it is not a DIY job unless you know a qualified electrician, there is soldering involved!
