Check the power wire that plugs into the power supply for anything that doesn't look right. Something could be loose inside also but don't attempt to dissemble it and fix it unless you're confident in your skills, otherwise any electronics shop could diagnose and likely fix it for a small fee.

It is the worm gears attached to the front of the motor in the housing I had the same problem on the heritage series. The parts are plastic so inevtiably they wear out.

SOURCE: Sunbeam Mixmaster Heritage Series Model 2350 speed problem

The speed control on the back is simply a variable resistance potentiometer, the same thing that controls the volume on older amplifiers. The output current to the motor is supplied by the printed circuit board in the bottom of the unit. This allows gradual increases in speed to avoid over-torquing the motor on speedup. Even the poshy-posh-posh mixers do this.

At least it still works. The most common problem is the cheap plastic drive gears that strip out with a mild cookie dough, this jams the beaters together and requires burial-at-dumpster.

Hi Jill. Your mixer's gears are made of plastic and can't really handle heavy loads such as cookie and bread doughs. Contact Sunbeam Corp. to locate a parts place near you. You'll need to replace at least the large gear that turns the turntable base, possibly the worm gear that turns the large gear too. Grease these gears when you re-install the parts. You'll have to cut a couple of cable ties to get the machine apart enough to do the work. If this solution has assisted you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45.

I have a sunbeam mixmaster mx9500. When i turn on, the whisk struggles to rotate at all and there is a crunching sound coming from inside. What should I do, can I repair myself? Its out of warranty.

Not knowing how handy you are I would try to take the top of the mixer apart and see what is going on. It sounds like one of your gears is either slipping or has some broken teeth. If you don't want to tackle it a small appliance repair shop should be able to fix it for you.
I just found this
Maintenance Service
Your Sunbeam Caf? Series
Power Drive should be regularly
checked. After approximately four years
of domestic use, the grease in the gear
compartment should be examined. We
suggest at that time you send the mixer to
your nearest Sunbeam Appliance Service
Centre to ensure efficient, correct servicing.
Just there recommendation but i guess a known problem.
