How to maintain and clean my forced action mixer
Clean your forced action mixer after every use. You can e.g. use a pressure washer in the drum (DO NOT use it on the electric parts). When mixing glue containing product (such as rubber asphalt/resin) you can either burn the blades or use very hot water. BEWARE: Only mix glue containing product with steel blades.

Rubber blades vs. steel blades?
When purchasing a SoRoTo® Forced Action Mixer you chose whether you want it delivered with steel or rubber blades. The stadard version on the smaller models ( 40 L - 120 L) is with steel, and the larger models (200 L and 300 L) are with rubber blades - but you can get whatever you want.

My forced action mixer won't start...
When you transport and set up a forced action mixer, there can be several, easily solvable reasons why it won't start. Here is what to check if your forced action mixer won't start.
My forced action mixer blows fuses / can't pull a full load...
There are several things, you should look into, if your mixer acts like that. 1. Check, that the machine is on a separate power group (230V min. 10 Amp. / 110V min. 16 Amp.) 2. Check, that the cable is a strong rubber cable of max. 10 Meters. 3. Check, that the capacitors are neither deform nor blown.
What is different about the 65-Light?

How do I mount a new capacitor onto my old motor?
On some of the older mixers, the capacitors were mounted on the inside of the motors. On the new mixers, the capacitors are mounted on the outside and are a little bit bigger than the old ones. The new capacitors can however still be mounted inside an old motor, you just have to remove a little bit of the excess plastic from the bottom. Be careful not to open it up!
My mixer makes a humming sound...
It is important to make a note of whether the sound comes from the motor or the switch.
If the motor makes the sound, the motor is the issue. If the switch makes noises, this is the culporate.
Talk to your SoRoTo expert about it.
There is smoke coming out of my forced action mixer...
If smoke is emanating from your mixer, it most probably has one or more broken capacitors, that should be changed at once.
The mixing arms keep going up...
The mixing arms can go up for several reasons: - Check that the output shaft is not filled with mixing product. - Check that the mixer is equipped with the right mixing arms for your current purpose. Steel blades may not be used for mixing rock containing material (with rocks over the size of 8mm).
