Rare, No Longer Available 70's Sunbeam Mixmaster Governor!

Orig. Sunbeam Part # 86631



1970's Sunbeam Mixmaster governor types

Here's an extremely hard to find, no longer available new part - one of the few that fails with any regularity on the great vintage Sunbeam Mixmaster mixers we affectionately call 'PlasticMasters', made during the 1970's. They looked like these: 



A few 1970's Mixmasters on the bench



Some typical service numbers (found on the rectangular beater ejector, where the beaters insert) are MMA, MMB, 1-7A, 1-8B. Nearly all the Mixmasters that use this governor have removable cords that plug into the right side of the motor housing. 


The 86631's usual failure location

When this happens your Mixmaster won't run at all, but is completely "dead". (The on/off switch contact arm on the top of these governors fatigues and breaks off). If you don't feel a definite 'snap' when turning it to 'off', then it's a pretty safe bet it's just this contact arm broken off.


This is a good/used, tested governor, and it's not hard to replace if you're just a bit handy with tools. Quantities are always limited, so if you need one, don't wait!
