My aim is to generate several maps with the atlas function in QGIS 2.4 (win7 64) showing the same map section and scale. However, each generated atlas map shows a slightly different map section (not scale) according to the position of the features of the coverage layer. I want only the displayed features to change, not the map section. I can't see a possibility to 'fix' the map. Any ideas?

If you uncheck the "controlled by atlas" check box from your map item's properties then the map will keep exactly the same extent and scale for every atlas feature.
