Question about Hobart N50 Stand Mixer

N-50 service manual

Bigg t, I just bought an N-50 that's in pretty good shape. I would like to have the service manual for it in case I ever have to rebuild it. I've downloaded everything I could find on the Hobart Service website. I have the ability to rebuild if necessary, but I wouldn't do it without the manual. I plan on this mixer outliving me, and I've blown two other "consumer" mixers, so I'm fed up with that stuff. I have no immediate need, but Iknow from visiting this site that you are "The Man". Can you help in my search for a manual? Thanks in advance. Ricardo

    bigg t. Thanks for the quick reply. I fully realise that Hobart does not release these manuals. I do have the exploded views for this mixer's components. I'm sure you know what I need for a potential rebuild. The fax # is 905 619-3275. Many thanks for your expertise. The fixya website and it's users are fortunate to have you online. Amen.

Hobart n -50 where do i put grease in, machine makes a grinding noise

If your N-50 is making a grinding noise there is a strong (almost certain) possibility that the cause is more than just needing more grease.

The sources of the noise are from the transmission case (front portion of the motor housing) and/or the planetary (where the blade attaches).

A search online should turn up the N-50 Service Manual.

With luck, it may be that the two adjustments specified in the Service Manual will do the trick

Three things come to mind regarding the noise:

1) If simply greasing the planetary does not do the trick, then

2) There are two adjustments to the transmission detailed in the Service Manual. And if that is not the cure

3) The transmission housing will need to be removed to find the source of the grinding. This is where the grease is truly encountered.

Shifting on my Hobart N-50 mixer. I just pulled the switch/shift cover. yellowish-brownish grease in places, but a few gears looked dry. Tried shifting / no success.

You are in for an adventure. The first step is to find the N-50 Service Manual online and download it.

Trouble shifting speeds is rarely a simple matter of lack of grease.

If your mixer shifted before removing the switch plate, then there is a post that shift lever engages which in not being engaged properly.

On the other hand, if that is not the problem, the transmission case must be removed. Shifting gears involves moving the tumbler yoke assembly. If you are extremely lucky the yoke's spring has become detached and re-attaching it will be all that is needed.

Of course the spring will be in place and you will have to deal with all the grease and investigate the cause.

This is a good time to replace the old grease as well.

Kitchenaid frozen bearing

Hi Thaddeus, What model is it? If you have taken it apart and checked the worm gear surely you would have stumbled on the frozen bearing if one exists. When you split the gear cases you are in a position to turn everything by hand so any frozen part is going to be pretty obvious.

How to check Artisan kitchenaid worm gear

If the planetary head (which holds the beater) is not reliably turning, you can be pretty sure that the worm gear (more properly called a worm follower gear) has protected the motor from burning out by sacrificing itself. The Service Manual may downloaded from:

Kp2671 stops and starts

It is not going to be a problem with the motor. It is going to be a chipped/damaged gear, a bent planetary center shaft pin, or possibly the planetary itself.

The first thing you need to do is take the mixer apart. You are going to have to clean of all of the gears and inspect them very closely. I recommend using paper towels and wd-40. If there is any damage, the gear will need to be replaced, in some cases the pin that sits between the worm follower gear and bevel gear can become bent, if it is, it also needs to be replaced. If all of the gears, bearings, and the pin are in perfect shape inspect your planetary assembly. In some cases the center shaft, which is pressed into the planetary can become loose, so it will still spin under no load, but as soon as you put something in the bowl it stops spinning.

Here is a link to the KitchenAid service manual. This will walk you through how to take the mixer apart, and put it back together:

Please let me know if you have any questions, or need help with the repair.

Thank you,

Small screw and nut?

By turning the screw cw or ccw it adjusts the clearance on the worm shaft assembely,in other words if the mixer is noisy by adjusting this screw you can quiet it down.
