Introduction

This guide shows the challenges that stop us from properly repairing this type of mixer.

Parts

No parts specified.

  1. Finding and fixing the problem is a cinch!
    • Finding and fixing the problem is a cinch!

    • Disassembling the mixer is very destructive!

    • This appliance is a clear example of planned obsolescence since a worn (carbon) brush makes it fit for the trash.

    • If the fault is in the electronic module, clever cutting can make an acceptable repair possible as shown in this ElectroMax video.

  2. The speed control knob is easy to disassemble by inserting a knife blade under the graduated circle and prying it up. There are three obstacles to the removal of the motor and electronics module from this mixer: The entire motor block enclosure is firmly secured with adhesive.
    • The speed control knob is easy to disassemble by inserting a knife blade under the graduated circle and prying it up.

    • There are three obstacles to the removal of the motor and electronics module from this mixer:

    • The entire motor block enclosure is firmly secured with adhesive.

    • This motor bearing fastener acts as a circular mount.

    • This plunger system fastener is a second circular mount.

    • I do not see a way around any of these three issues without a certain amount of "destruction".

  3. One of the two leads has broken off. Possibly made fragile by improper assembly?
    • One of the two leads has broken off. Possibly made fragile by improper assembly?

    • Correctly resoldering the lead lets the motor operate normally again.

Conclusion

We do need to cut the shell off the mixer, which makes salvaging this part difficult.
