Question about Hobart N50 Stand Mixer

1 Answer

Clicking noises. Mixer doesn't have enough power to mix.

We were making bread yesterday in my N50 when it started making clicking noises (sort of like a bicycle wheel with a baseball card). We turned off the machine and the clicking noises trailed off as the motor slowed down. We turned it on and off a few times, giving it a few minutes to rest (even though we had just started), but it doesn't seem to have helped.

Now the mixer barely has enough oomph to move the paddle (without anything in the bowl). It doesn't make any clicking noises while running, but when I turn it off it clicks as the motor slows down.

Any ideas what I can check or what might be the problem? We love this machine and would love to get it working again. I'm comfortable opening it up if you need details on what it looks like inside or anything like that.

Thanks in advance for any help!

You have a drive gear that runs off the motor gear. That gear has a problem. It has either broke away from the weld or you have a pin or key sheared.

My Kitchenaid mdl: KSM 155gbca is making a loud bumping noise with or without an attachment.


It is more than likely in the planetary or the fuse gear inside the gear box. Try it once you have the planetary off before you go looking inside the gear box. Easiest is planetary problem but far far more likely is the fuse gear.

Hobart N50 noises


The frequency is the same in all gears.
disconnect the power and invert the mixer and remove the planetary after driving out the taper pin, then you can access the transmission. It may be a rotor shaft bearing in the motor or no grease on the worm gears.
Nice touch with the video.

My mixer just started smoking while i was mix some


Your mixer may still be good, let it cool down and then check it out, If it runs OK then there is no problem. The motor in your mixer probably over heated from trying to mix bread dough which will make any mixer work hard. These mixers will get warm when over worked but unless heavy smoke was coming out and you were getting a burning enamel smell it is probably OK. Let it cool and try it but I suggest you not use it for bread any more.

Is 300 w mixer powerful enough to mix bread dough?


Your mixer is easily able to handle the kneading of bread dough. Please advise:

9 cups of all purpose white flour, maximum.

6 cups of specialty flour, maximum. This is any flour besides all purpose white.

Bread doughs are only to be needed on speed 2, and never for longer than 7 minutes.

This is all stated in the Use and Care guide for the mixer itself. If these guidelines are not followed, it may lead to a product failure.

Used the bread kneading hook, after 10 minutes, smoking


The mixer motor has probably overheated, as proper use and care was not being followed with the stand mixer.

Bread doughs are recommended to be mixed on speed 2 only and never for longer than 7 minutes. With the resistance of a bread dough that is provided against the beater, mixing for over 7 minutes may overheat mixer and cause smoking.

Please consult your use and care guide to refresh your memory about how to properly use your mixer for making bread doughs.

Which kenwood mixer to buy?


Hi. Congratulations for researching mixers. I wish I had before I bought my Kitchenaid HD Pro. All mixer manufacturers over-rate their products. Goto www.consumeraffairs.com and do a search for each mixer you are considering. Most mixer failures are caused by mixing heavy cookie or bread doughs. Although manufacturers claim that their mixers can easily handle these doughs...They cannot! My Kitchenaid self-destructed after 30 batches of bread dough. "For the way it's made"! Indeed! I solved my problem by buying a Hobart N50 mixer. It's a 5qt. and handles anything I throw into the bowl. I bought mine used, and refurbished it myself. New these units cost $2,035.00 USD.

If this solution has assisted you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45.

May need lubrication out of use 15 years


Hi Snowbird. Your mixer was manufactured in late 1940's or early 50's. It was sold with one all-purpose combination whisk/beater. There is no dough hook available from Kitchenaid. There are two greases you can use in your mixer. Shell Darina-2, or Chevron FM ALC EP-2, the Chevron product is rated as "food grade", meaning that it is safe to ingest if it drips into the food you are mixing.

Remove screws and cover to expose the transmission. Remove all traces of old grease and replace it with one of the above "approved" greases. If you find this solution helpful, please rate it. ricardok45
