Question about Sunbeam 2485 MixMaster Series Hand Mixer

Sunbeam hand mixer. One beater not working

My Sunbeam 2485 has a great moter but one of the beaters does not turn. I had taken the mixer apart and discovered a small metal spring pin was not attached. This pin is similar looking to the metal pin in a clothes pin. I believe this pin, when attached, turns the gears that turn the beaters. I have unsuccessfully tried to find a diagram of the mixer's inside construction so I could repair it myself. My question is where does this pin belong that turns the gears, that turns the beaters? Thanks for any insight!

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

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.

I have a Sunbeam Mixmaster from mthe 1970s,

If this mixer sits on a stand, first remove it from the stand. Turn it upside down and shine a flashlight into the right side socket to look for obstructions. When you say you swivel the head, do you mean you rotate the handle? This is how to eject the beaters after use. It may be that the ejector on the right side is stuck. If so, you will need someone with mechanical skills to disassemble & repair.

I need replacement beaters for an old GE hand mixer.

I bought an old GM mixer no. 30M47 with no beaters yesterday at the Salvation Army store. The beaters I have for a newish (ugly) GE hand held beater fit perfectly. I suggest taking your old beater to a store that sells new GE handheld beaters and seeing if the new beaters fit. If anyone reads this and wants me to look up the number of the new ugly beater for them, please say so before I take it to the Salvation Army.. : )

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 [email protected]

Beaters don't turn

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

Sunbeam Stand Mixer

For whatever reason, Sunbeam must have decided to cut on costs and used a plastic gear to transfer power to the beater. I had my Sunbeam for two years and the plastic gear decided to break. End of mixer. You cannot find a replacement part anywhere. It is the last sunbeam I will buy.

Sunbeam 2484 Beaters won't stay engaged.

In taking apart my same beater, I'm trying to figure out the alignment of the spring which provides the tension so that the beaters won't fall out. I'd assume that your spring has mis-aligned. You need to take it apart (3 Philips screws), and carefully pull the assembly apart. I'll bet your spring falls out like mine did. I'm trying to find a schematic from Sunbeam to see how the spring should align.
