well chiffon cake batter is best mixed with a stand mixer and in a metal bowl.....
Also there needs to be a lot of air in the batter and will not do for you to be thrashing it about :)
perhaps can take a look at your recipe?

Chiffon cake- the egg need to be seperated. The egg white (is very sensative) must not contains any egg yolks.

Coz when beating the egg white ( until stiff) with electric mixer, if contains (even very little traces) of egg yolk will result in "fail chiffon cake"

How to know if egg white is at stiff..
Normally i beat egg white until foamy then i add sugar (gradually) a little cream of tartar (optional) then beat until - egg white can stick on bowl, when u turn bowl upside down.

Hope it helps
