The drive for the attachment hub failed while using the grinder attachment. The mixer drive still works but the attachment drive does not. Can I get the parts and fix this myself? Given the dismal reputation of this machine I am reluctant to spend the money to send in to a repair depot but would be wiolling to try and repair it at home. Thanks

The mixer's planetary is not disconnected when the meat grinder is attached and continues to turn.
If the noise you hear only occurs when the grinder is in place, then the grinder may be assumed to be the cause. Consult the meat grinder's instructions and make sure that nothing is loose or overtightened.
The bevel gear sits above the worm-follower gear. I think you mean the drive attachment gear.
I think I have the same, or similar problem. I ground a piece of meat that stopped it from working. The drive-attachment-gear turns if I push it in, but then it pops out. I am still trying to figure out what part is causing the issue - the drive attachment gear, or maybe even the worm follower gear.
Does the machine make the same noise when there is nothing attached to it at all? I have a few suggestions but I need to know this first. I do not believe that it is a gear but actually in the backend of the unit. Please post back to this discussion thread.
I just got the same problem too. There was a little piece of fat in the meat and it stopped the grinder. I removed it but the attachment rotates a full turn and then stops. The same happens with other attachments even under practically no load.
It sounds like one of the gears inside the head has failed. You will need to remove the head and take it apart to work out which one. It should be relatively easy to get hold of the part you need once you have identified it. Please post your model number for us to point you to the right parts list.
Its a 325 watt mixer. If you grind or mix dough often you may consider getting something stronger or turn it off every ten minutes or so and let it cool down. We burned a 325 and got the 575 watt "600" series and no problems ever since. I know these things are expensive. The 325 is more mixer than grinder. The attachements fit ANY size mixer but some are not recommended for use in all mixers.
If its quiting see my posts on "doesn't run at sitr" and "Removing the motor cover" To get inside and clean those contacts.
Yes A-200 are number 12 I would find a hobart grinder they will have a big H in the casting on the neck get one with a stainless pan and stomper to push product down the throat. If you wait on Ebay and put it on your watch list they do come along. look for no rust. Make sure it has the big H in the casting. the other after market ones seem to not last long like the metal wears on the worm and hub to fast. also you always know where to get a piece if you need it if its a Hobart. not so with the forign jobs.
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.
