Using a 1950's Sunbeam Mix Master Mixer

I bought a 1950's Sunbeam Mix Master mixer at a thrift shop. It has a juicer attachment set (which includes a bowl with a center hole and a funnel hole, a ceramic juicer cone with a slotted metal rod in the center, and a metal double-pronged clamp-on device). But it seems that the handle of the mixer is in the way of the place you need to hook the juicer up (a hole on the left side next to the handle ).


Is there a way to remove or turn the handle out of the way? There does appear to be a tiny slot/hole on the right side of the handle. Perhaps a key? Also, can you remove the beaters from this mixer? I don't see an eject button at all. I do see two black buttons, one on either side of the mixer. When I unscrewed one a little spring popped out from behind it. I put it right back. Does anyone remember these mixers or how to use them? Many thanks!

Hi There,

The handle at the top is supposed to swing to one side to release the beaters. It also swings to one side to put the juicer attachemtn on to use it.


I remember well the old mixer that my grandmother had because I started my married life with it 45 years ago. It gave me a lot of years of good service and I've regretted getting rid of it when I wanted a newer model.

It worked for me too! Thank you. I was holding blades under faucet to clean every time as I couldn't release blades.

I had a sunbeam mixer from the early 60's. I used it until it wore out...about 35 years, and wish they would still make them. They did put out a Classic model a few years ago. It looked like mine did, but it sure didn't work like mine. I used it only a few times, and when the holidays came, tried to make divinity candy and the motor burned out.


I made hundreds of batches of divinity with my first one. I now have a KitchenAid that my kids bought for me.
As for removing the beaters....there was no button or lever on mine. You just had to tug lightly and they would release to be removed.

Try visiting this site:

There are several manuals (PDF files) for different models of MixMasters available.

If the above site doesn't have the correct manual, try contacting Sunbeam through their site and request a manual. Often they will send you a .PDF file free or a hard copy for a small fee. If they charge too much, google search "Sunbeam Mixer Model ### Manual" and check the results.


I hope you get many years of service out of your "old bargain". Happy mixing.

You tilt/slide the handle away from the the juicer 'port'; that ejects the beaters.

To remove beaters hold the big black handle and rotate down.

I have an old Model 7B Sunbeam mixer. How do you remove the beaters. I got them in but can't remove them.

Facing the mixer pull the handle on the top to the left and this releases the beaters. Dont unscrew the two side buttons theyre just covers that hold carbon brushes against the motor.


The juicer fits on the top also by pulling the handle to the left.
