Dear sir, I see you are a Hobart expert as you have helped many people on this website. I have an older A200 20 quart mixer and the solid metal handle on the speed selector broke. I did call Hobart but those idiots do not know anything. I went to Hobart's online parts catlog and found a really old parts catalog and it shows a machine identical to mine and the lever as being part number p-12728. I called Hobart and they say this part is no longer available and is not replaced by something else. I see a newer online catalog for the A200 mixers and it has the 2 piece lever as part number 437339 which hobart says is the same as part number 00-875241. However the sold metal lever p-12728 is not interchangeable in their computer. I think that if I get the new 2 piece lever I can make it work as all my other pieces (front plate, rear cam, etc) are all in good shape. Can I do this or do the 2 styles of levers not interchange?
This is an older mixer (has an on-off switch that looks like a house light switch) so I want to make sure it is the same before I pay $55 for a new 2 piece lever and find out it is different. I can not find out when this mixer was made or even its specific ML number as only the following is engraved on the side of the mixer: 126.96.36.199 KGA.A200 8461.A952511 1648855
What unit is this? The person at hobart can not help me out. I would hate to get rid of this mixer all because I can not change the speeds on it as the lever is really tough to turn without having the long arm on it.

Re: Mixer speed selector lever
Hi. I live in Canada. I called my Hobart Parts people and they tell me that your shifter is obsolete and the shifter is no longer available in North America. I have the same model as you. For your information, the Specifications # is 3943 and your mixer was manufactured in 1966. Your serial # is 1648855. The age of your unit pre-dates the ML identification numbering system.
The newer shifter you speak of is not compatible with your machine as hobart also made transmission changes when they built the newer model. It will not mate with your machine, so save your money and don't buy the new one. Your shifter lever is made of Aluminium.
You have 3 options.
1. Check around the Wholesale Restaurant Equipment places if you have any nearby and see if they have the part you're looking for. Often times they keep some of the old parts from obsolete machines that they can no longer repair.
2. Find a local welder who can weld on a short piece of aluminum to the remainder of your shifter or if you have the piece that broke off, weld that back on.
3. Search eBay.com for the original part. There are many thousands of these mixers still in use, and you might get lucky and find the lever.

is it a K45 or a K45SS? If it is a K45 you will have to replace the filters inside and probably the speed control plate, if it is a K45SS then you need a new phase control board. The K45 is pre 1978 and the K45SS is post 1978. Your information is correct on pre 1978 K45 models that the capacitor is bad, but it might be cheaper to go garage sale hunting and find a second machine as the parts are no longer made and having spares on hand may be a significant advantage in the future, also there are a great many of the K45SS parts that will also repair the K45 mixer so it may not be a practical solution. Watch ebay regularly for K45 parts, they come up every couple of months. On the parts diagram also look for the K5 diagram as it is identical to the K45, one is a 5 quart mixer and the other one is 4.5 quart, same parts same motor same everything.
on a a200 there is no oil. this mixer requiers grease. if mixer is leaking oil it is because the grease is broken down .you have to pull tpo cover off mixer remove trans. parts clean out old grease clean all trans. parts reassemble put top cover back on .then make sure mixer runs in all 3-speeds before putting 1.5 cans of -47grease back in grease can be bought @any hobart office
You will need to confirm the model number. An H600 or L800 have a wheel to manually turn to raise and lower the bowl. The M802 and V1401 hav a belt driven bowl lift clutch, operated by a lever. When you push the lever up or down, you are engaging a small transmission between the motor and main housing. You would need to remove the top cover and see what's happenning. It may be there is something other than the proper spiral pin joining the lift lever to the clutch input shaft, giving alot of backlash and insufficient selector movement.
There is a website called onesharpstore.com, It carries parts for the hobart 30 quart mixer. I specifically saw the bowl and hook attachments as well as others like beaters and a cheese and vegetable grater. Hope this helps. And if you sign up I think you can even request a full catalog for your machine.
Please visit the corp website www.hobartcorp.com and click on the "Sign In" link in the upper right hand corner. You'll need to complete a brief registration form, but then you'll land in the Hobart Resource Center.
Hobart no longer manufactures the A200 mixer - but you can review and download a user manual and a parts catalog from the Resource Center on your mixer. That should help you understand the parts need.
We do sell replacement parts direct to end users, just visit our service website at www.hobartservice.com - and click on the "Locate on Office" link. You'll be able to contact your local Service branch to purchase a replacement part OR to have them take a look at the unit and provide a quote on fixing it.
sorry my friend but that is a very old mixer and we dont sell them anymore (im a tech for hobart).the only suggestion i have is to find a machine shop in your area and bring them the old gears and see if they can machine them for you.are they broken?whats the problem.
