Hobart A200 transmission issues

Hello,
I'm wondering if you can help me diagnose a somewhat loud Hobart A200 mixer. It is an older model, serial #794389. The planetary speed does not increase when put into 2nd gear and 3rd gear is noisy. Any ideas on what might cause this and what it might cost in parts to repair?

Your A200 was manufactured in 1942. It may well be time for an overhaul. If it were only noisy, I would suggest re-greasing it, as that would quiet it down somewhat. With 60+ years on the unit, the odds suggest rebuild time. Before you commit to that, take the top cover off the unit, remove two dust covers, insert a hi-intensity flashlight into one hole and look inside the other, look for excessive wear on the gears. If you see excessive wear, and still want to re-build then call for a Hobart tech and warm up your checkbook, OR, pose the re-build question to bigg t (the Hobart tech on this website). He may be able to help you out. ricardok45

How do I empty and then refill the grease in the gear box of my 30 quart Hobart mixer


Transmission has to be somewhat disassembled, grease removed, lower seal should be replaced and then grease added and reassembled. Not that easy to do. Check www.hobartservice.com for your local Hobart office.

Hobart A200 noise


Your mixer was built in 1942 and from the sound of it, it's been without grease for some time. Before you dismantle it, try adding new grease to it. This is the less expensive and less time consuming approach. The grease product to look for is Shell Darina XL EP-2, Try to find a local Shell Distributor and see if they'll sell you about 4 tubes of 400 grams each. This grease is compatible with most other greases, so you won't have to remove the old grease before you add the new stuff.

Remove the four screws that attach the Hub to the body of the mixer, pull off the hub. You now have access to the transmission area. work the new grease into the cavity, try to get as much grease as you can toward the back of the compartment. This will be a very messy job unless you have, or acquire a grease gun that the tubes will fit in. Lay the mixer on it's back and let gravity help you to get a lot of grease down through the hub opening. Keep adding grease until you've greased up to the hub opening. Grease the hub gear and then re-install the hub. Raise the mixer to vertical and start up the mixer, letting it run for a couple of minutes. Stop the mixer and shift gears,, once again start the mixer and repeat this procedure for the last gear. Listen for the sounds it was making before, they should be silent or at least muted. If it's still making loud noises, You may well have to take it apart for an overhaul. Dont overlook the planetary gearing, this gearing is not bathed in grease like the trans. Remove the planetery assembly, clean and inspect the planetary gear and the large ring gear in the mixer body. Regrease both and re-assemble. Your mixer is now as quiet as it will get short of a complete overhaul. If this solution works, it has only cost you a few bucks and a bit of time, making this. solution a good one, unless you still have the major noise issues.

I f you've found this solution helpfull, please rate it and Good Luck! ricardok45

A200 HP rating


yes the early models had 1/3 the later 1/2 but I think it was more a marketing thing to keep up with competitors the 1/3 always worked fine

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.

A200 problem


Check the planetary.this is the bottom part of the mixer where you attach the hook.
You will see two nuts; make sure their tight as the planetary may have moved down.
