Question about Hobart A200 Stand Mixer
I'd really appreciate some input regarding an older A200 (#794389) that I have. It is making a periodic noise that seems to coincide with the occasional clutch slip? I assume it is the clutch slipping as the planetary motion speeds up momentarily before settling back down to normal speed. All 3 speeds of the transmission function and the attachments are not hitting the bowl. The machine has sat idle for quite some time so I was wondering if there is anything I can do (grease?) to refurbish it a little. Here's a quick video of it kneading a small piece of dough. I wasn't able to catch the 'slip' or change in speeds but these are the noises that I'm hearing. With the exception of the noise and occasional speed hickup, it is kneading fine.
Hi, here is my opinion: 1) your planetary, or attachment hub is making the noise as it goes around, and there is grease in the gear ring that keeps it lubricated, it may be as simple as removing the planetary grease ring ( the chrome ring), and taking loose the bolt and lowering off the hub and cleaning the old grease, and installing new, reassemble in reverse. You may also have bad bearings in the shaft portion of the planetary ( the shaft your attachments go onto) allowing the shaft to "wobble" a little bit causing a slight misalignment as the smaller gear goes around while mixing. How far you want to go is up to you.
For your other problem, I have seen the brass clutch bearings stick on the main shaft in the transmission, causing the planetary to momentarily speed up, or to maintain a wrong speed ( 2nd or 3rd) when set to first, but that would require full disassembly of the transmission. Best left to someone who has done it before, but if your inclined, go for it, but get a part breakdown first, or take pics as you go. Hope at least some of that helps, and thank you.
