if you remove the top cover, you will find an overload group with a green and a red button on top, next to the contactor . One is test, the other is reset. On the side of the overload are two thumb wheels, one is auto/ manual, set this to auto, the other is -15%,0, +15%. If you are running very heavy batches and you want to push your motor harder, move it to +15, but it's not recommended. If it was set to manual, when it trips and cools down, it will not reset untill you press the reset button, in auto, once cool you an restart the mixer.

What is the difference between a H800 and L800 mixer

I have used the H600. Nice piece of kitchen kit for hard use.

Model H600 is a heavy-duty 60-quart mixer which features a two-horsepower motor, a timer and a #12
Attachment Hub as standard equipment. With the use of bowl adapters and special agitators, 30- or 40-
quart bowls may be used on the H600.

Model L800 is a medium-duty 80-quart mixer designed primarily for use in general kitchen applications.
This mixer features a timer and #12 Attachment Hub as standard equipment and is powered by a
two-horsepower motor. With the use of bowl adapters and special agitators, 30-, 40- or 60- quart bowls
may be used on the L800.

A Bowl Guard is standard equipment on all H600 and L800 models.

A programmable timer controller is optional on H600 and L800 models.

These mixers can be ordered with a stainless steel finish.
A variety of attachments and accessories are available for all mixers. These are described in a separate Use and Applications Handbook, which is furnished with each mixer.

Here is your manual.

Hobart L800 will not stay on unless you hold start buuton

If it has a bowl guard on it then it could be the bowl height switch or the side switch on the contactor. If it does not have a bowl guard then it is more than likely the contactor side switch.Check for your local Hobart office.

What kind of oil should I use in my Hobart 800 floor mixer?

Hello Jdnwilk,

In a Hobart L800 you use 140 weight gear oil in the head and 90 weight gear oil in the planetary. You should start with about 160 ounces and check the sight glass and fill until in the middle of the site glass after oil settles.

Thank you for choosing

Our Hobart D-300 was overloaded with bread dough and now it will not start even without any load whatsoever. Is there a reset button? PS The Gears are not can move the mechanism by hand....

Is it a problem of the motor not starting, or does the motor start but does not mix?

If the motor starts, then you've either broken a gear or a key inside the transmission from overloading it, or stripped the brass worm gear (also in the transmission).

If the motor doesn't start, I'd say you probably burned out part of the motor starting circuit if the motor was overloaded severely enough to re-engage starting components.

Hobart L800 mixer

Not sure this will help, but here are some things you might want to consider- 1st, get a new appliance technician.

2nd, if the gearbox is not making noise, then you may want to ask a COMPETENT technician to look at your mixer and check that the mixer is wired correctly for the power that you have coming into it. i.e., if you bought the mixer from a kitchen that was using high voltage (say 240v) and you have it wired into a lower voltage, then the shaft will turn, but it will seem very underpowered.

These units have the ability to run off of more than one voltage (120V, 208, 240) and multiple phases. The internal wiring needs to be wired in accordance w/ your supply voltage and phase (there is a schematic on the trans case that you will see when you remove the mixer hood that will show you the correct configuration for your application).
You should find the full wiring schematic on the underneath of the hood when you remove it.

I would also have said competent tech check the input voltage (this can be done at the main input relay) and while he's there, check the output voltage of the same relay to insure that you don't have a partial short. On the side of the relay is a 110v thermal fuse that should be tested too.

If the contactor was shorted, your shaft wouldn't turn and you would see a small green reset on the face of the contactor that would be protruding farther than normal.

Also, on the schematic, you can find the location of the fuses and it would be in your best interest to check those as well.

Hope that helps!

Hobart L800 Mixer Age & Bowl Question

The manufacter date is actually a two letter code on the data plate. But being the s/n is an "11", factory #11, it's old.

The key number for getting the right parts on a Hobart is the "ML" or "Spec" number. It is most always a five diget number.

As far as your actual problem -- I'm confused.

Hobart N50 Tripped

The reset button is to protect over amping the motor. The N-50 is not a very strong unit, (commercially), but you won't break a gear. If you overload the unit, you'll either trip the overload (reset button), or you will break the taper pin that attaches the planetary to the center shaft.

If you're looking for a small commercial unit, and you're in the US, look into the 10 qt Precision Mixer.
