Question about Sunbeam 2346 Heritage MixMaster Series Stand Mixer
I believe that this particular model is supposed to have the bowl mix separately. I have removed the black piece from the bottom of the larger bowl in order to allow manual spinning. If I am able to figure out how to fix the bowl spinner I will make another post.

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.
