Vintage Sunbeam Mixmaster 
Oiling and Maintenance Information
For models 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, and 12
(Most of these are scanned from original manuals, and most are FREE - help yourself!)

 

 

Welcome 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.  

 

Some notes on lubrication: 

1) "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 spindles.  

 

2) 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. )

 

3) 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

 

Most of these are FREE downloads, no 'strings' attached! Keep the old girls running smoothly, folks!
