Hobart A-200 First Gear is Having Trouble

I turn on my mixer and it runs. When I go to put something into the bowl when it is in first gear, it stops but you can still hear the motor running. It works perfectly fine in second and third gear. I have 2 with the same problem and can't figure it out... Please help!!!

    I have already replaced the spring and key. The bolts are not too tight... Is there anything else it could be?

If the mixers are older the dive key shaft,spring or key are broken,if they are newer the key is sheared.Also check the nuts near the beater shaft and make sure there not too tight.

Drive Shaft stopped kneading dough


To give the mixer strength it has planetary gears. Something may be wrong in the gear section

Kp2671 stops and starts


It is not going to be a problem with the motor. It is going to be a chipped/damaged gear, a bent planetary center shaft pin, or possibly the planetary itself.

The first thing you need to do is take the mixer apart. You are going to have to clean of all of the gears and inspect them very closely. I recommend using paper towels and wd-40. If there is any damage, the gear will need to be replaced, in some cases the pin that sits between the worm follower gear and bevel gear can become bent, if it is, it also needs to be replaced. If all of the gears, bearings, and the pin are in perfect shape inspect your planetary assembly. In some cases the center shaft, which is pressed into the planetary can become loose, so it will still spin under no load, but as soon as you put something in the bowl it stops spinning.

Here is a link to the KitchenAid service manual. This will walk you through how to take the mixer apart, and put it back together: http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/mendingshed/kitchenaid6qtservicemanual.pdf

Please let me know if you have any questions, or need help with the repair.

Thank you,

KitchenAid stops working when anything other than liquid is in the bowl..


There is a non metal gear inside the motor head that is stripped and no longer engaging the worm drive. What happens when you try to assist the turning process (try it only on stir speed, sloooowwwww) if it starts to turn and then stops again then it is the gear I spoke of. It will require tearing down the machine, cleaning all old grease, to insure that you have no ground up parts in the grease, then replace the grease gasket and gear. Hope this helps

Seized mixer


It sounds like a stripped gear. Altho I can't find the parts diagram for the K5Awh I have found the diagram for the similar mixer with the lift bowl feature. Check the diagram below and make sure it is similar to your K5 machine since there are two designs for the motor on the lift bowl.

Look at the diagram below and find 9709231 worm gear item #18 in:

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10157992.pdf

It is the one which usually strips. It can be purchased online for between 12 and 25 dollars so check the part number and put it into google to find the best price. Let me know if the motor design is different from what is shown in this parts list.

Take it apart first and see which gear is stripped.

alternate parts list is:

and the gear number is

Mixer runs, but will not turn beater.


You are correct, in the mixer head above the attachment hub is a gearbox, and there is a fiber gear meant to do just that should something similar happen, it can be replaced, I don't know price, but if you are careful, and fair mechanically, it is a straight forward replacement.

Motor replacement for A200


If the motor runs and when under a load the planetary stops its not the motor.You either have a sheared key or broken gear in the transmission.

Motor runs but the beater does not move


you most likely stripped the plastic gear (Worm gear???).  This gear is designed to fail to prevent the motor from burning out under EXTREME loads (i.e. when a metal piece falls into the bowl). The plastic gear is much cheaper than a new motor.  Look around on this site to see how to get at/repair the gear.  I've found many parts on eBay.com and also PartSelect.com.

Attachments won't turn


most likely a stripped worm gear if the motor still runs but the attachments/planetary gear won't turn.
Did this happen when mixing a big batch of dough or when something fell in the bowl that shouldn't have?
