How to I remove cover to expose control board


Turn the mixer around and face the rear of the machine, look at the round end cover; on the top center you will see a small phillips head screw take it out and then lift up and slightly out to remove the cover of the electronics of the machine, the first thing you will see is the speed control plate (black and copper) behind that is the governor and behind that at the top is the phase control board. Hope that helps, What are you trying to accomplish?

Won't Turn On


There could be several problems some painful some not so much, the simplest one is bad wall plug or bad plug wire, the hardest is that the motor burned out, but i don't think so. The most likely solution is the speed control switch. There are three scres on the switch in an inverted triangle shape/form. The one on the bottom has probable been turned just enough to stop your mixer from working. The speed control switch that you use pushes against the screw every time you turn your mixer on eventually it can turn by pressure and it will shut your mixer off with just a 1/16th inch turn. It is a very simple fix.
Where is the speed control switch? Glad you asked. It is in the rear of the machine. There is a round bubble shaped cover at the rear of the mixer called the end cover, it has one screw (Phillips head) on the top. Take that screw out, then grasp the cover and lift up and away from the mixer. Be careful there are two fragile hooks on the cover that can break if you twist it left or right, just lift up and pull away. when you have removed the cover you will see a black and copper plate staring back at you (it might be all dusty with flower and food particles) look for the adjusting screws at the top left and right corners and one at the bottom center of the plate. The one at the bottom center is the culprit. Take a Phillips head screwdriver and turn it left an eighth of a turn and turn the machine on, if it doesn't work leave the machine on and turn the screw in the opposite direction . ill bet a steak that the mixer starts. if it does you need to replace the speed control plate or take the screw out and put some lock tight on it. BUT!!!! when you do this you will have to completely re-tune the speed of the machine. So if it starts just leave it and you may have to do this once or twice again in the next ten or twelve years. Let us know if this fixed the problem. there are several other possible causes that could make the mixer stop but they are more painful.

My kitchenaid stand mixer arm wobbles when I turn it on.


if the head wobbles on stand, flip mixer upside down, and tighten the pivot pin screw way deep down inside stand. you will need a long flat blade screwdriver. it's probably loose.

How do I access gears in a200 hobart. I don't see any screws to detach top. top looks painted shut.


There are two screws holding an access cover on the top front half of the mixer. These screws are normally plainly visible - has it been repainted heavily enough to hide the screws?

If you can't see the screws, all I can say is they are there, under the paint. Maybe shine a flashlight accross the top front half at an angle and look for a hint of a slotted screw head in the paint.
I'm not sure what the access cover is made of nor am I certain if the screws are stainless steel, but if the cover is aluminum and the screws aren't stainless steel, then a magnet should be able to locate the screws for you.
The screws a usually a domed-flathead screw, so some very close inspection of the paint surface may show a slight "bump" where the srews are.

Mixer head loose


Referring to the diagram on:

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10157992.pdf

Remove the screw, item 22, to remove the trim band around the mixer. This will reveal 4 screws which hold the top cover on. Remove the screws and lift the top off. Find all the screws which hold the gearhead in place and tighten them all. If you want to make the fix a permanent one put some thread-loc compound on each screw and tighten it.

Can't attach ice cream maker dasher


If the bolt is the hinge pin that the head swivels on when tilting it up, it can be pushed back in when the head latch is released and the mixer head is lifted slightly.

Planetary Cover removal


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!

Planetary ring


ok im going to take a shot at this its been a while since ive been in a school kitchen
with the planetary ring its supposed to be tapped in make a jig by getting a 2x6 board and 2 2x4s they dont have to be long screw the boards together with the 2 2x4 standing 4 inch up across from each other about the size of the blender head
the wood is to support mixer while on its head and to keep from teetering around
put down down a piece of foam
put the mixer on its head upside down
now you have to find an old plastic sturdy made cup the size of the ring its gotta be able to take a beating (the cup)
but not a hard beating this will help in seating the panetary ring
now get another piece of foam
glue to top of cup let dry then trim around the cup evenly out side and on the inside leave a little foam over the inside edge
place ring on planetary drive where it goes put cup over ring make sure the cup matches size of ring
now get a wood rubber or small pin hammer and tap lightly on the cup till the ring sits itself back into position this is the safest way to place the ring
use a little appliance greese on inside ring lightly to help ease into place

now if any part of the ring is bent i dont recommend placing of old ring i would suggest buying a new ring for mixer
