The Icing On The Cake! Stripped brass worm drive, no spare parts avail Similar problem, no parts and having to turn the bowl by hand. OK machine overshadowed by terrible customer service Was gifted this for our wedding. Date Purchased Aug We were told by a Sunbeam agent that the part was no longer available to fix it. The numbers on the dial showing the different levels and uses have also worn off. This machine has been a real disappointment. All wiring should be tightly secured away from moving parts.

Have used this successfully over 5 years but it started to make noises and authorised repairer said earlier this year could not get needed parts for it any more.

I am really disappointed with the mix master, my mother has a Sunbeam mix master that she received as a wedding present in and is still using it today, it is as good as the day it was first used.
Last straw was today when it blew up after 30 seconds of whipping cream, smoke pouring everywhere. It went for a couple of years. When the cover is removed the spring loaded arm which pushes the beater release button back up may fall out. Very unhappy as hardly used this machine.

My husband did it Tools Required: It was also expensive in comparison to other similar mixers, to buy at the time. When the bowl rotating mechanism started playing up I rang to be informed that replacement parts are not made anymore.
These should pull out or lever out easily. Bowl small stainless steel. Removed rear top motor housing and the front of top motor housing, one screw on the bottom and one in the top under the beater removal button. When we pulled it apart the gears had ground, and there were metal shavings all over the bench.
