Motor Warnings

Electrical Motor Powered Mixers

The motor must be grounded in accordance with the national electrical code local codes, by trained personnel to prevent serious electrical shocks. To service the motor, disconnect the power source from motor and any accessory devices and allow motor to come to a complete stand still.

Some electric motors have a manual reset thermal protector. If the motor overheats, the thermal protector will open the motor circuit. If this occurs, turn the main switch off on the motor and after motor cools sufficiently, push the reset button on the motor. A click indicates it has reset and the motor can now be restarted.

Honda Gasoline Powered Mixers

Shut off fuel valve on the carburetor when towing the mixer. If you fail to do this the engine cylinder may fill with gasoline making the engine unable to start. If you use a starter rope to normally start the engine, you would find hat you would either not be able to pull the rope or it would be very hard to pull. To clear this it may be necessary to remove the spark plug from the engine. Pull the starter cord several times to force the raw fuel from the piston chamber out through the spark plug hole. Replace the spark plug and the spark plug wire. In addition, check the oil to make sure fuel hasn't spilled into the oil pan. Fuel contamination would make the oil thinner and a much less effective lubricant. Proper lubrication is vital to the engine to keep it running freely and cool. If there is not enough lubricant in the oil, the engine will freeze up. The motor would then have to be overhauled. Check the oil level on the dip stick. If it shows that the oil is higher than the mark on the dip stick, don't take a chance. Change the oil. Refer to the engine manual provided by the engine manufacturer.
