20 Most Recent Sunbeam Heritage 2346 Stand Mixer Questions & Answers

I can't solve this problem, but mine just died doing the very same thing. Motor is running, the revolving base is turning, and the beaters are just sitting there. Ruined an entire batch of divinity!

Don't know a solution, because I am having the same damn problem.
I am very discouraged with this product.
It is a piece of ****.
I am thinking about taking it out back and shooting it with my 270 I bought.
That is the only solution I know.

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

The beaters can be retimed but, you have to open the mixer. There are 2 gears visible inside the head. Look closely for arrows or dots on the gears. These are the timing marks. Like marks should be placed exactly opposite each other on the work gear. (The spiral shaped gear) Look at the notches where you put the beaters. One will be lined up straight, the other will be at 45 degrees. While you have it opened, you might want to regrease it. Remove the old grease with a stick or small narrow screwdriver. Put vaseline or equivalent in the gear area. Only fill it about half way. If you over fill it, it will leak out when you get it hot from long or heavy use.

Note, electric mixers are great to have around, whether the stand or hand-held type. For those of us that use one on practically a daily basis, here are few instruction below on how to fix an electric mixer.


  1. Unplug the mixer before attempting any type of repair. If the mixer has a lot of batter and food on it, clean the appliance. A lot of times while using the mixer, the ingredients can work their way up the beaters and make their way into the gear section where the beaters attach. This can happen especially when mixing bread dough, cookie batter or any dense or heavy ingredients.
  2. Refer to owner's manuals when fixing an electric mixer. If the mixer stops beating when it's turned on, it could be that the appliance isn't getting the proper voltage. Test the mixer using a voltmeter. If the mixer is getting the proper voltage, it could be that one of the gears are worn out.
  3. Check the wiring on the mixer. Look for any cracks, tears or exposed wires. Sometimes just using electrical tape to repair the cord is all that's needed.
  4. Take out the screws from underneath the head of the mixer using a Phillips screwdriver. Next take out the screws on the back of the head of the mixer (some brands have these, others don't).
  5. Grasp the head of the mixer and gently pry off the housing with a large screwdriver. A slot screwdriver is preferable. Clean out the area with a soft cloth and look for any broken parts or wires.
  6. Go directly to the website of the brand of mixer you have. Most major brands will offer advice and suggestions for proper maintenance.
Good luck and thanks for using fixya.

If you're making cookie batter, you use the whisk type mixer(s). If it's a bread dough, you use the solid flat type mixer(s).
