Small Household Appliances/sunbeam mixmaster


I just purchased a mixmaster model #100-86659 service # 3-8AT.  I was wondering are the beaters supposed to touch the bottom of the bowls?  Is there an adjustment for this problem?
Thanks, Becky

Only the beater with the plastic knob on the bottom should touch the bowl.  That is what drives the bowl.  It could be adjusted too far down and that will not work as it places too much pressure on the bowl.  There is an adjustment where the mixer head meets the stand.
Turn the screw out for less pressure and in for more pressure.
