Question about Hobart A200 Stand Mixer
I have a 1949 Hobart a200 spec 3943 that i am rebuilding the gears look to be in great shape from what i could see without removing them. I opened the transmission and removed the old grease. I then added new grease purchased from hobart.I also added grease to the planetary. It doesn't sound much better than it did before. The noise is like a metal on metal grinding sound. The url below is a website i created to document my project. When you put the mouse over the home button a menu pops out that will take you to a page called the unit. There is a button that will take you to a video of it running before grease. There are also pictures on the website that show the transmission gears. Even with grease it doesn't sound much different before. If there is anyone who knows what might be the problem please let me know. Thanks http://1949hobarta200spec3943overhaul.weebly.com/index.html
After viewing and listening to your video, my first guess would be bad bearing(s). The sound varies with the speed of the agitator, so the noise is at the speed of the transmission shaft or planetary area. These mixers use very common standard bearings. As such, they are available very reasonably from sources OTHER than Hobart. You will need to take the transmission apart in order to find and solve the problem. Study the parts manual in detail. It seems complicated, but once you understand it, it is logical. I highly recommend that you get a really good understanding of how it works and goes together before you start taking it apart though.

SOURCE: hobart A200 transmission issues
Your A200 was manufactured in 1942. It may well be time for an overhaul. If it were only noisy, I would suggest re-greasing it, as that would quiet it down somewhat. With 60+ years on the unit, the odds suggest rebuild time. Before you commit to that, take the top cover off the unit, remove two dust covers, insert a hi-intensity flashlight into one hole and look inside the other, look for excessive wear on the gears. If you see excessive wear, and still want to re-build then call for a Hobart tech and warm up your checkbook, OR, pose the re-build question to bigg t (the Hobart tech on this website). He may be able to help you out. ricardok45
