Is there any way I could get a repair/service manual for an old n50? I have both a KitchenAid Model G and an older Hobart N50 that I want to restore. I really would rather tackle the tear down with knowledge rather than hit and miss.

Take the back cover off the motor and then there will be four nuts that
hold on the back bearing cage of the motor. After removing that, you
will find 7 large screws in beside the motor that remove the gearbox.
can buy hobart bowls from lots of places, or use the correctly shaped kitchenaid ones, both fit.. i like the lip and thickness of the hobart bowls, bought mine from globe equip.. do u still have the service manual, if so i would be real intrested in it, please
If you only want to service the unit and not open the case, you can add grease through the gear shifter plate opening once you remove it. if you have a grease gun with a flex nozzle that's a bonus.
If not it is a messy job. Keep lots of paper towels at hand and use a narrow spatula to get the grease inside. Get as much in as you possibly can.
To remove planetary, with pin removed, spray a bit of wd-40 or other penetrating oil into where the pin came out of let it penetrate for a few minutes. Plan-A Take two screwdrivers and gently try to pry the planetary away from the body of the mixer. Plan-B Add a bit more lubricant to the shaft pin area and install a beater, then try prying with one screwdriver while putting downward pressure on the beater, alternate prying on both sides of planetary. Excessive force at the planetary top can/will crack it as it is a molded piece of metal. If you found this solution helpfull, please rate it. Good luck.
Go to www.hobartservice.com, register, then go to select "food machines" in the Product Group, then "mixers"and look for the Discontinued Products, then find the N-50 mixer drawings, they are all there, even the old ones. Look through the "exploded" drawings for your extra parts. It seems to me that the tech who put this together should know if they belong to this mixer or not. Does he work for Hobart? Or is he a repair person who states that he knows how to repair Hobart products. If he does'n't work for Hobart, these parts may have been on his bench BEFORE he looked at your mixer. A true Hobart Tech has access to specs on ALL models and the ability to access the Service Manuals. If you find this solution helpfull, please rate it. ricardok45
