Question about Hobart H600 Stand Mixer
Hobart H600 runs right away when plugged in. The contactor is not stuck shut but is energized as soon as you plug it in. Person who used it last few times said at first they had to hold in on the start button to make mixer work. Soon as they let go of the start button the mixer shut off. Next, they used a broom stick to keep the start button pushed in while mixing the dough and when done just pulled the stick out to stop the machine. The problem that I have now is that the machine will not shut off unless we unplug it or hold in on the stop button. If we just push in the stop button the mixers contactor opens and mixer will stop only if we keep the stop button pressed in. If we let the stop button go the mixer continues to run. I suspect that the start switch is bad but could sure use some help from someone familiar with this mixer.
Sounds like the side switch is the latching switch for the circuit, and you are right about it's operation. I strongly suspect where the wire comes off that slide switch and goes to the coil, there would be 2 wires at that connection, where the other one leads to one side of the start switch.
Looking forward to your reply. It will be easier to email the schematic that you come up with to me. Be sure and tell the the starter manufacturer that is installed as well.

Sounds to me like the start switch contacts are welded shut.If you have a multimeter set it to ohms,remove 1 wire from the switch,put your meter leads across the switch and if you get a reading that switch is bad.If you dont get a reading i would check the side switch on the contactor.Im a hobartt tech and repair these mixers alot.Let me know.
