to the Sunbeam Mixmaster maintenance page! Right now this information
applies only to selected older metal models of these great mixers. I hope
to add more as time allows. Scanned and digitally remastered from the
original Sunbeam manuals, these files are in pdf format, and can be
downloaded or viewed in your browser. You'll need the Adobe reader (also
free) to view pdf files. If you don't have a copy, just click the image on
the left side of this page to download it.
notes on lubrication:
"Genuine" Mixmaster grease is no longer available, at
least I can't locate it any more. But a good grade of high temperature
automotive wheel bearing grease works very well for the purpose. Just be
sure it's formulated for wheel bearings with disc brakes, so it's high
temperature and won't tend to melt and run down your mixer's beater
Use only the best oil you can find. I usually use either Whirlpool's
'turbine oil' or Slick50™ engine treatment. Both have worked well for
me. A good sewing machine oil will also serve. (Please don't use WD-40;
it's not a bearing lubricant, but a "water displacer", among other things:
Here's my current list of uses
for that handy stuff. )
I love 4 oz precision needle-oiler
bottles for adding a drop or two to all sorts of machinery, and
they're perfect for oiling Mixmasters. I keep a few extras on hand. You
can see them here.
