Question about Sunbeam 2485 MixMaster Series Hand Mixer

Open Question

Portable mixer beater holder

I have an old portable Mixmaster that used to work like a charm. The only problem is that one of the holders (for lack of a better term) that the beaters go into needs to be replaced (it's worn I think). The mixer has a button called Burst of Power and the color is Harvest Gold. That's how old it is. I believe it is something I can do myself but I don't know the proper name of the part and the information tag has long since been gone. I bought it at a thrift store and I love it. Please help.

SOURCE: Regarding the Sunbeam Mixmaster (model

Pry the beater release button out with a screwdriver. There are two screws underneath it and one under the motor housing between the the beater holes. This will allow you to remove the chrome front cover, but not the motor and drive assembly. Getting to the part that contains the gears requires complete disassembly of the mixer. It is not designed for service, and requires patience and a variety of tools to disassemble.

It has a metal worm gear and plastic drive gears. If the beaters are out of alignment, then one or both of the plastic gears are stripped and the mixer is junk. Repair plus shipping costs equals the price of a new mixer. This is the weak point of these mixers and a fundamental flaw in an otherwise robust and sturdy design. It is definitly not the same mixer *********** bought 30 years ago.

Try placing some "braces" rubber bands around the shafts of the beaters. This should tighten the hold of the shaft with the mixer and keep them more straight.

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.

I have a new sunbeam mixmaster 2594 and can not remember where I put the user's guide. There are two different shaped mixers and I don't know which goes where.


Hello Hdjohnston! If I were you I would call Sunbeam's Customer service number
Or email them and ask for a replacement user's guide (aka manual). This shouldn't be a problem as I've gotten replacement guides for other things before with no trouble :) Better yet, here's a link to get you your manual from Sunbeam's official website:
http://www.sunbeam.com/InstructionManuals.aspx?section=

Also, if you sunbeam mixmaster is like mine, it you look at the holes where the beaters are inserted it shows little symbols of beaters (one with for example a square top and the other with a more curved top) which lets you know which type of beaters goes in where!
Hope this helps! Kat

I have an old sunbeam mixmaster that trips the safety switch


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.
