Serial Number 31-1266-418 This mixer was in my grandparents basement when they passed away a year ago. Just trying to find out how old it is so I can locate a service manual for it. Also kind of curious how my grandparents ended up with a mixer of this size. I know she used it at the church making bread quite a bit. Can you tell me who was the original owner? Grandparents passed away about a year ago and everything was gone thru by the family and this ended up in my basement. Any help would be great. ThanksBob

The K5SS was manufactured from 1978 to sometime in the 1980s (don't know if it made it into the 90s). Hobart sold its Kitchenaid division to Whirpool in 1982. If yior mixer has the Hobart logo on it then it was from 1978 to 1981 9 or 2. If it is identified only as Kitchenaid then it was made after 1981.
Hi Don. If your mixer is hurling honey, you must be very popular in the ant world...Sorry!
The Hobart electric motor on your mixer was designed and engineered to operate on 115-120 volt current and is the most dependable, and capable commercial mixer out there Is it possible for you to use a commercial Imerssion Blender for the first part of your mixing operation. Once your honey thickens a bit perhaps the a200 wouldn't hurl honey. Another consideration would be to either try a different beater or modify the one you have by removing surface area from the beater. If you remove metal, be sure to do it in a balanced fashion to avoid unwanted vibration in the beater. If you're not up to removing metal, take it to a machine shop and they'll do it for you. It probably won't take long, or cost much, and they have the expertise and the equipment to do it properly. If you found this solution helpful, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45.
Cindy,if it has a screw take it out,grab a flathead screwdriver and work your way around the cap.Some mixers have been painted or just the gunk over the years make the cap hard to pull off.The push button i have never seen on a hobart mixer near the hub.Give me the serial and spec number.
