Hobart V1401 Shaft Broken

We have a 3 year old Hobart Mixer that an employee was using and the shaft broke in half. I was wondering if there is any way that the shaft could have broken other than operator error such as not tightning down the bowl or installing the hook incorrectly?

I'd advise that you contact your local Hobart Service Branch for guidance on that question. Please visit the service website at www.hobartservice.com and click on 'Locate an Office" - you'll be able to locate the closest Service Branch to you for advice. Hobart does also sell replacement parts to end users direct as well - through the local Service Branch.

Most problems occur with borken shafts are do to customers overloading the bowl with product.I recommend going to hobartservice.com and printing a mixer capacity chart for your model machine and pay close attention to the absortion ratio portion at the bottom of the chart. If any problem understanidng it call your local Hobart office and they can help you over the phone . steve

Trina you might be better off to contact Hobart or an authorised Hobart service agent about this. The lack of answers probably indicates resident hobart experts are absent.

Drive it out with a punch and hammer. It's best to take the planetary off the machine so you can support the shaft. If not it puts a lot of unnecessary stress on the bearings and other parts.

Oil leak


instead of putting a gasket on tell him to take out all of the old grease out that is what has broken down and turning into oil causing a leak and if he can repace the seal around the agitator shaft replace the old grease with a high temp bearing grease or a good quality lithium grease

A200-T Hobart Mixer 1st speed have no torque


Check the spring pin that locks the motor shaft to the main drive gear in the gear box. You should be able to turn the motor from the back at the cooling fins and watch the shaft spin in the gear, that is if the pin is sheared. That is a common problem. if you plan on keeping this machine for a while, i recomend that you spend a little more on a quality spring pin,

good luck.

Hobart A200 diagnosis


the first A-200's have a worm gear drive that will slip when old but also when mixing dough somtimes the dough will push the mixer aherad of its self and look like its slowing but its just catching up. if you have a old worm shaft it will have a spring on it is how to tell. it is replaced with a shaft that is all keyed and has no slip or give unless a key shears.

amy, depending on how old your mixer is there are 2 types of clutches for 1st gear.these could be your problems--a key is sheared on the shaft--shaft/gear is broken.the bottom part of the mixer where you put on the attachements is called the planetary,does it look like it has moved down?you could tell if the dough hook,wire whip,ect,ect is hitting the bottom of the bowl.if this is the case its just simply tightening the 2 nuts next to the beater shaft.if this is not the case you would have to dissasemble the transmission.let me know.
