SOURCE: Need oil/grease for Hobart 20 qt. mixer

Hi. Your A200 is in need of service. The grease's lifespan has expired. There are two ways of doing this. First, the expensive way. Call for a Hobart Tech to come and service the mixer. This will take about 4-5hrs to service at a rate around $100.00usd per hour, plus the cost of parts. He/she will need to change all seals, remove old grease and oil, check all bearings and gears for excessive wear and replace as necessary, this includes the planetary gear.

Now for the affordable solution. Unplug the mixer, remove the top cover. Gently use a small screwdriver to pry off the two circular metal dust caps found on the transmission housing, use a good flashlight to determine, through these openings, the quality, quantity and condition of the grease inside the transmission case. If there's a lot of oil you can remove much of it a bit at a time by using a wire coat hanger to which you can attach bits of cloth to absorb as much oil as you can. Once oil is removed, add new grease through these same holes until full (Chevron FM ALC EP-2, food grade lube). Run the mixer for a couple of minutes to distribute the new grease. Fill to the top once again and replace dust covers. Remove planetary, clean, inspect change seal and re-grease.

OPTION (mechanically challenging) You can do a more thorough job by removing the trans. cover completely, removing the 3 gear shafts inspect all bearings and gears, change seals on mainshaft and planetary. Remove old grease and oil, clean gearshafts and gears. Parts drawings are available from www.hobartservice.com It's free to register and then locate your parts drawings. Be sure that you have the correct files for your Model #, ML# if there is one and Spec.#, all found on the info plate.

When disassembling, take a digital photo of every step and lay the removed components on a piece of cardboard in the removed sequence. These practices will become valuable during re-assembly.

What kind of oil should I use in my Hobart 800 floor mixer? jdnwilk@juno.com


Hello Jdnwilk,

In a Hobart L800 you use 140 weight gear oil in the head and 90 weight gear oil in the planetary. You should start with about 160 ounces and check the sight glass and fill until in the middle of the site glass after oil settles.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

What type of gear lube should I use for my Hobart H600 mixer?


Hi, btperduell

below is a copy of an e-mail from Horartservice.com. I searched the web forhours for the correct oil and could not find any info so I e-mailed Hobart. The Planetary is a different part from the transmission andthe sight glass on a M802 is for the oil in the transmission. The answer that Hobart gave is not an NSF oil. Ineeded the oil for the planetary section on a model M802. Even the directionssay that it is normal for a drop of oil to occasionally drip from the seal.That is where the dough hook attaches. I am in the process of researching the oil and Exxon / Mobildoes make a NSF version. I just need to find somewhere I can buy less then a 55-gallondrum. The above mixer only uses 6 ounces. Take care and stay safe Thank you Mike Hobart E-mail follows ============================================================== Mike, Hobartuses "EXXON SPARTAN EP-150 (6 oz)" in the M802 planetary. Hobart part #102973-13. This IS NOT a food grade oil. If you mixer is leaking you shouldhave it serviced. Service, parts , lubricants and information canbe obtained by contacting your local Hobartoffice in Pittsburgh@ (412) 788-5380.

Making noise in planetary gear area. we have a l 800 hobart mixer just purchased ,has wirring noise planetary gear area ,i 'm quite sure it is common wear from use , but want to repair...


The noise you are describing sounds like the noise associated with the pinion gear meshing with the ring gear in the planetary. Depending on the age of the unit, some noise is to be expected. The lubricant used in the planetary is different than that of the main transmission and is not visible without disassembly. Again, depending on age of the mixer, your planetary may have a small amount of oil and a pump to bathe the gears or just a generous amount of grease applied to the gears. The only way to properly inspect the planetary is to remove it. Depending on your luck, this may be 20 min job or several hours. It all depends on the ease of which the planetary releases from the main center shaft. Should you decide to tackle this job yourself let me know and we'll do our best to assist you. Several knowlegeable techs monitor this area of the site.

Hobart D300 Mixer, Will not shift from 2nd to 1st gear without coming to full stop, Ideas as to source of problem? It also seems to be making increased noise.


Hobart mixers are NOT designed to change gears while operating. The Hobart planetary gears are like the transmission in your car but, without the clutch. Everytime you change gears while unit is running you are tearing up the brass spacers, gears & seals. Time to call a QUALIFIED service tech to come out & sell you another planetary or rebuild your old one, about $2K, Buy a Varimixer if you want to change gears while unit is running, they use belts. Another planetary premature failur cause, over loading the bowl. Batters & icings- 75% bowl capacity, Dough 65% bowl capacity.

LEAKING OIL SEAL ON HOBART 660 CAN'T GET PLANETARY TO COME LOOSE


Definitely need to remove the acorn nut. There should then be a few thinner nuts as well. Make sure to drain the oil from planetary first and also be careful as the entire assembly is heavy. If I recall correctly, you need to be aware of a fiber gear that follows the inner gear (sun gear) and drives the oil pump that is mounted inside the planetary.

Hobart D300 Mixer: Has no torque and no speed in any gear


You have a gear with broken teeth or one sliding out of place because the brass shims are eaten up. Hobarts have what is called a planetary, round head where the grease caps are, and there are no clutches for this planetary. These units are not made to change gears while unit is running (#1 problem of gear failure) (#2 is overloading the bowl) Hobarts need a really stiff GREASE, not oil. If you decide to take the planetary apart, get all the syrup out and replace with a stiff axel grease. It is a very difficult job replacing a gear & ALL the shims. The round head where the grease caps are can easily be removed to do this.

Hobart 140 Qt Mixer 4 speed. needs the oil changed? what kind of oil to use?


You can use a heavy weight gear oil or call the local hobart branch for it.To remove oil----Look under the mixer where the beater shaft is in the back and you will see a three quarter inch nut,remove this nut and drain the oil then put nut back in.To fill the unit remove the top cover screws and remove the top,you will see a long hexagon nut in length,remove this and grab a funnel then add the oil---be patient it takes time to fill as the oil is heavy.
