SOURCE: Need oil/grease for Hobart 20 qt. mixer

Hi. Your A200 is in need of service. The grease's lifespan has expired. There are two ways of doing this. First, the expensive way. Call for a Hobart Tech to come and service the mixer. This will take about 4-5hrs to service at a rate around $100.00usd per hour, plus the cost of parts. He/she will need to change all seals, remove old grease and oil, check all bearings and gears for excessive wear and replace as necessary, this includes the planetary gear.

Now for the affordable solution. Unplug the mixer, remove the top cover. Gently use a small screwdriver to pry off the two circular metal dust caps found on the transmission housing, use a good flashlight to determine, through these openings, the quality, quantity and condition of the grease inside the transmission case. If there's a lot of oil you can remove much of it a bit at a time by using a wire coat hanger to which you can attach bits of cloth to absorb as much oil as you can. Once oil is removed, add new grease through these same holes until full (Chevron FM ALC EP-2, food grade lube). Run the mixer for a couple of minutes to distribute the new grease. Fill to the top once again and replace dust covers. Remove planetary, clean, inspect change seal and re-grease.

OPTION (mechanically challenging) You can do a more thorough job by removing the trans. cover completely, removing the 3 gear shafts inspect all bearings and gears, change seals on mainshaft and planetary. Remove old grease and oil, clean gearshafts and gears. Parts drawings are available from www.hobartservice.com It's free to register and then locate your parts drawings. Be sure that you have the correct files for your Model #, ML# if there is one and Spec.#, all found on the info plate.

When disassembling, take a digital photo of every step and lay the removed components on a piece of cardboard in the removed sequence. These practices will become valuable during re-assembly.

What kind of oil should I use in my Hobart 800 floor mixer? jdnwilk@juno.com


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.

My hobart n50 runs on the same speed in 1 and 2 and will not engage in 3 .. also sounds louder than normal..how do you lube?


Hello Ldl,

I understand that you are having a problem with you 5 quart commercial mixer by hobart. The 1 and 2 are the same speed and you are not getting 3. You also would like to know what oil to use in your machine and how to fill the unit.

To answer you speed question first. The speed is adjusted by the bolt located in the middle of the planetary (the part that turns underneath of the head the attachments hook to). If this bolt is tightened all the way up or to lose it will not allow you to achieve all of the speeds. You will have to adjust this screw many times and turn the machine on to check you speeds. Eventually you will achieve all three speeds.

Before I answer how you lube the machine you need to know what kind of lube to use. The gear box uses a 90 weight gear oil and the planetary uses 140 weight gear oil (grease).

Lubing the gear box with top cover:
1. Remove the top of the gear box (the cover)
2. There is a Round plate with three bolts (do not remove) in this plate there is a disc (looks like a cap seal) use a small screw driver to pry this disc out carefully you will have to put it back once you are done lubing the unit.
Lubing with out a top cover:
1. Remove the switch and gear selector (remember position of gear selector)
2. Fill thru whole in side behind plate removed

Lubing planitary:
1. Remove drip ring
2. Remove the planetary (unscrew bolt in middle)
3. Remove key located in the side of shaft
4. Lube and put back together

HELLO, My name is Timothy and I got a motor repaired for the Hobart H 600 stand mixer and I need to ask one Question. What is the gear oil that this model takes as I lost some of the gear oil during...


Planetary takes six ounces 150 weight gear oil if completely drained (i.e. Exxon Spartan EP 150 or equivalent). Transmission uses one gallon 460 weight (yeah, 460 weight!) gear oil (Exxon Spartan EP 460 or equivalent).

What type of gear lube should I use for my Hobart H600 mixer?


Hi, btperduell

below is a copy of an e-mail from Horartservice.com. I searched the web forhours for the correct oil and could not find any info so I e-mailed Hobart. The Planetary is a different part from the transmission andthe sight glass on a M802 is for the oil in the transmission. The answer that Hobart gave is not an NSF oil. Ineeded the oil for the planetary section on a model M802. Even the directionssay that it is normal for a drop of oil to occasionally drip from the seal.That is where the dough hook attaches. I am in the process of researching the oil and Exxon / Mobildoes make a NSF version. I just need to find somewhere I can buy less then a 55-gallondrum. The above mixer only uses 6 ounces. Take care and stay safe Thank you Mike Hobart E-mail follows ============================================================== Mike, Hobartuses "EXXON SPARTAN EP-150 (6 oz)" in the M802 planetary. Hobart part #102973-13. This IS NOT a food grade oil. If you mixer is leaking you shouldhave it serviced. Service, parts , lubricants and information canbe obtained by contacting your local Hobartoffice in Pittsburgh@ (412) 788-5380.

Hobart D300 Mixer: Has no torque and no speed in any gear


You have a gear with broken teeth or one sliding out of place because the brass shims are eaten up. Hobarts have what is called a planetary, round head where the grease caps are, and there are no clutches for this planetary. These units are not made to change gears while unit is running (#1 problem of gear failure) (#2 is overloading the bowl) Hobarts need a really stiff GREASE, not oil. If you decide to take the planetary apart, get all the syrup out and replace with a stiff axel grease. It is a very difficult job replacing a gear & ALL the shims. The round head where the grease caps are can easily be removed to do this.

Hobart A-200 serial # ?


Hi. Your mixer was manufactured in 1967. If you plan on keeping it, take the outer cover off, gently remove the two metal dust caps with a small screwdriver and look into each opening with a good flashlight to determine the quality and amount of grease in the trans. case.

Ideally the grease should almost fill the space with no oil visible. If you need to look further, I suggest that you open up the transmission cover, to determine the condition of the grease that lubricates the transmission. If you find that oil is seperating from the grease. you would do well to remove all of the oil and old grease and replace it with either Shell Darina EP-2, or Chevron FM ALC EP-2 grease. It's a messy job, but it will add years of life to your mixer.

Check the planetary seal, remove, clean and regrease the planetary gearing. With a mixer of this age, you never know if it has ever been serviced since it's manufacture or not. The grease must totaly encapsulate the trans. gears. As the grease breaks down it's level lowers and it leaves some of the upper gears without lubrication, and will result in preventable wear.

Good luck! If you found this solution helpful, please rate it. ricardok45
