Question about Hobart A200 Stand Mixer
Hey bigg t, I need to get a new planetary drive shaft in my mixer, but i need to get the old one out. Whats the best way to get the cast iron cover off other than brute force and a pry bar? I like my mixer. thanks for your time, SR
Using flat screwdriver, remove upper main shaft cover screws (3 of them) to expose shaft nut. Using 3/4" wrench, remove nut and washer on top of main shaft. Using 9/16" wrench, remove double nuts and washers on both small shafts (the double bearing-retainer plate can stay screwed on). Using flat screwdriver, carefully pry stainless drip ring from lower housing (it's just press-fit). Using 3/4" wrench, remove acorn nut and locknut from bottom of main shaft (hold on to the housing, it's gonna drop down and it's HEAVY). Using flat screwdriver, remove cast iron cover hold-down screws (4). Place wood block over end of main shaft bottom to protect threads, and tap upward with a hammer. Don't go crazy with hammer, top housing could go flying. It may take several taps (it's on tight). Increase force slowly so as to minimize chance of damage. Prying out the two press caps from upper housing with a flat screwdriver will give you a place to stick your fingers to lift cover off once it's tapped loose.That'll get the top housing off. But planetary shaft isn't coming out without complete transmission dis-assembly. Better get a book, or better still, hire a pro. Just be careful with Hobart factory repairmen. I've had a VERY bad experience with a VERY highly-paid factory tech. You may have better luck than me, but I'd ask around at a few restaurants and search the 'net for an independant repairman. They tend to work harder for less money than factory guys, and take more pride in their work. Hope this helps!
