Proper Operation

Once you’ve selected the correct commercial mixer, be sure to read the manual thoroughly and refer to it when unsure of operation procedures.

Here are some other helpful tips:

Don’t Overload the Mixer

The key is to use the equipment to its capabilities and not overload it. Otherwise, you can put unnecessary wear and tear on it, and risk a failing motor. This is why it’s important to purchase the right mixer for your needs.

Always Use a Filter Regulator

If you buy a pneumatic mixer, you mustn’t plug the airline into an air compressor system without a filter regulator. Pneumatic mixers need clean, dry air to run. Without this, debris, water, and condensation will get into the air motor, and cause it to immediately seize up. 

General Rules of Thumb

Pneumatic (Air):

  • Clean-dry air
  • Use of a filter regulator
  • Have an oiler for the air motor or manually oil it
  • Avoid large amounts of water splashing on the mixer as it can damage the motor


  • Avoid mixing anything flammable as you could cause the electric mixer to explode
  • Avoid large amounts of water splashing on the mixer as it can damage the motor

Cleaning Tips

If you’ve splashed anything on your mixer while using it, switch it off first and wipe it down with a damp cloth. If you hose it down you can risk damaging your mixer. Another great tip is to wipe it down after each use in order to avoid buildup over time. 

Maintenance Tips

It’s important to make sure you follow the manufacturer’s guidelines to learn about proper maintenance for your specific model. If you are experiencing a maintenance issue, please give us a call and we’ll walk you through the process. If we conclude that your mixer needs repairs, you can send it back to us and we’ll perform a free evaluation. During the evaluation, we’ll check out all the different mixer parts such as the switch and the motor, and provide next-day evaluation results with what the cost of the repair will be.

Sometimes the longevity of your machine is something you can’t control. Depending on the usage and environment your machine could last anywhere from six months to 30 years. The most important thing is to make sure you properly maintain your machine and keep up with repairs when they are needed. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Carefully select a mixer that fits within its capabilities
  • Make sure your air mixer has a filter regulator
  • The environment your mixer is used in matters for longevity
