Question about Hobart D340-6009 Mixer

1 Answer

Will only stay running if you hold the "on" button down

When you hold the "on" button down the coil pulls the contacts down and the mixer runs, but when you let go of the "on" button the contacts separate and the mixer stops. The switch and timer are new and working. I have tried to find a wiring diagram to no avail. Is there a circuit or relay that holds the contacts down?

Look in the bottom back of the pedestal,you will see a cover,remove the cover a contactor start switch and relay will be in there.I suspect the relay is bad,if you dont see a relay its a older unit.What is the ml #? You can find it on the data plate on the b ack.

I have a Uniworld UPM-20E commercial mixer. I bought used from another baker and it was working when I bought it.


Electric devices get damaged sometimes by internal corrosion even if you don't use them. If you have the technical knowledge, take apart the control board or control panel, probably you've got some contact problem. you might be able repair it by cleaning or maybe you might need some part to replace.
If you don't have real knowledge repairing this kind of an appliance, my best advice: take it to a repair service.
Some time ago I tried to do a similar job with my home mixer and had to take pieces in a shoebox to a repair service ; I took it apart, cleaned contacts bur couldn't assemble it againbecause after taking it apat, couldn't assemble it again

My kitchenaid mixer run on high at all times


If your mixer only runs on high speed there are 3 things that can cause that. The first thing to check will be the speed control plate, Remove the trim and end cover on the mixer, the first thing you should see is the speed control plate, this has 3 screws on it, try adjusting the top two screws 1/4 turn, this should slow the mixer down, do not over tighten. Also check to see if the control plate spring is unhooked. If the spring is unhooked, attach to bottom of the control plate, and squeeze the spring end.
If this does not fix your mixer, check the wiring of the mixer, you can locate a wiring diagram on the last page of the service manual.
If the speed control plate is adjusted correctly and all the wiring is correct it will be your speed control phase board. You can test the speed control phase board to see if it is shorted. With the line cord disconnected, pull the t-b ar contacts to open, and insert a piece of paper between them so they cannot close. Reapply power-the mixer should just run or buzz trying to run. If it operates at full speed, teh phase control board is defective and needs to be replaced.
Here is a link to the service manual: http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/mendingshed/kitchenaidservicemanual.pdf
This will aid you in taking the mixer apart, troubleshooting and putting it back together, remember the wiring diagram is the very last page.

Mixer motor quit.


I think that the motor is still fine. Get a Copy of the Repair Part List from Kitchenaid.com.
First thing I would do is to check the two Motor Brushes (one on each
side of the Motor Housing). Make sure they are not worn out, and when
inserted, they must both make contact with the Motor Coils. If even
one of them is not in contact with the coils, the motor will not run.
You can also remove the Motor Housing and visually verify that they
are touching the Coils.

What are black screws on the side of the mixer


Those are the two Motor carbon Brushes. Without them, the motor
would not run at all. Sooner or later, they will become so worn out
that the mixer will stop running. And when it does, don't be alarmed.
You simply purchase new ones for it. To see what they look like,
Go on Ebay & search for Kitchenaid Motor Brush*. They are keyed so
there is only one proper way to insert them into the motor housing.
If either or both brushes do not make contact with the motor coils,
the motor will not run.

Hobart H600 wont shut off


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.

Kitchenaid Classic -Mixer Head wobbles or shakes back and forth


Lay the mixer on its side and look up through the base. You willnotice a small set screw. This holds the pin tight. If the set screw gets loose the pin willl begin to move out and the head will wobble. Simply tighten the set screw. I just did this to my Kitchenaid mixer 10 minutes ago and it now works fine.

The tilt button is not working


Okay, we just figured this out ourselves.
There is a little hole on the neck of the mixer, where the mixer motor meets the neck. While pushing the tilt release button, stick a small screwdriver into the hole (it will not go far) and pry the latch upward. While holding the latch up and the tilt button, have someone pull up on the motor while holding down the base. It might take a little muscle, but after that, the motor will be able to tilt back and forth like it did before it got stuck. If you are the one holding the tilt button and latch, please wach your finger so they don't get pinched when the motor swings up.
