Question about Hobart A200 Stand Mixer

Older A200 Reessembly

Putting back together my older A200 after tearing it all down and cleaning out the old grease and putting in the new seals. Looking at the new manuals from hobart there are a few parts that are different. Anyways. my problem is putting the planetary part back onto the machine through the shaft and long key, this shaft seems to sit low. I do have the spacer washer part in too. also with that the planetary casting has a gap between it and the main gear box casting. I can make it touch by pulling up on it but putting the nut on the end of the shaft as far as itll go, itll just want to fall right back again once im not holding it anymore. Taking it apart i dont remember such a gap. Its such that when putting the metal ring back on makes that just want to pop right off again. Id say its about 1/8th inch.

I had the machine mostly put all back together but something wasnt quite right. I dont rember so much play (up and down) in the planetary shaft either. The old version has a big spacer the new kind shows nothing like it.

Also what way does the slow speed gear go on clock wise or counter?

I think I can figure this stuff out soon enough but appreciate any help if at all possible.

    Hey harry i saw your post on putting one of these back together and really wanted to talk you specifically but couldnt get your email. If you would shoot me an email at MacMasterMike at gmail dot com (use normal email format there). My problem is ever changing cause i got it mostly all back together but have another issue. I got it to run with all the bearings and lid in place. But when i screw the cover back into place with the bolts it goes downn lopsided. Eventually when there is enough presure i cant move the planetary shaft by hand which tells me i have something off. Anywaysid really aprciate the email and once i have it solves ill post the solution up here so others can see.

Just did mine a200f. try this, if all gears are in line place bearing cap back on planitary this is the cap on top. this should hold bearing in check from moving up and down. if this works for you remember not to over tigthen bottom jam nut, lower end should move freely. post to let me know if this solves your problem.

Can not get second gear in my Hobart mixer


Dear anonymous
When you say you can't get 2nd gear in I assume you took out to replace grease and now you are having issues with putting it all back together. With that in mind let me tell you what you may have done. Looking at the diagram of gears and shafts side by side (found on Internet under a200 manual) you need to find the older model a200 manual. Inside the shifting yoke is a divers key and that has to fit inside the yoke then carefully put back on the shaft while depressing that inner shaft spring I think you have left this out or out of place this keeping it from going back together and your getting 2nd gear on

Oil leak on A200


OK guys, let's try to solve your common problems first then the rest will become clearer.

The Hobart A200,,,,,,,, does not use oil! It uses grease! If you see oil, it's because the grease is separating the oil in the grease. Both machines have not been serviced for at least 5 years. That's about the lenghth of the lifetime of most greases. I recommend that you call Hobart and ask about their tech. rates. All bearings should be checked carefully for wear, as should the worm gear, seal, and the Bronze gear that it turns. The Planetary (mixing part), should be removed as well, cleaned. and inspected. Replace the seal on the planetary and on the mainshaft. Removal of all old grease is required, as it's no longer doing the job it was designed to do, will result in advanced wear, and is the actual source of your problems. The seals were designed to seal grease, not oil.

If Hobart is too pricey for you, and they are for many, try to find someone from a wholesale restaurant equip. place who has rebuilt these machines, or find a repair shop who have experience with this Hobart model. If you'd like to tackle the job yourselves, go to www.hobartservice.com. Register for free, then find the files that match your mixer model and ML # and download the parts files for it. These exploded drawings will be very helpful with your task.

Either way, these mixers need to be opened up to remove existing oil and hardened grease, especially the oil! The planetary must be removed to drain any oil out of it and to regrease it. If you can get the oil out of the mixer, a short fix would then be to simply regrease the the mixer and put it back into service, leaving the existing seals in place. Don't forget to wipe out the shiny ring on the planetary, if it too has oil in it.

There is no seal at the hub. No seals can be tightened. The oil leak underneath the mixer comes from the motor shaft seal at the transmission case where the pinion gear enters the trans., it flows down into the mixer support column and drips onto the floor or counter, again, because of the breakdown of the grease.

If you tackle the job yourself, find your local Chevron Distributor and get several tubes of the approved grease, namely, Chevron FM ALC EP NNGI 2. Chevron p/n 230204-000. If you've found this solution helpful, please rate it as fixya!

Good Luck! ricardok45

Hobart A200 diagnosis


the first A-200's have a worm gear drive that will slip when old but also when mixing dough somtimes the dough will push the mixer aherad of its self and look like its slowing but its just catching up. if you have a old worm shaft it will have a spring on it is how to tell. it is replaced with a shaft that is all keyed and has no slip or give unless a key shears.
