When the unit is running the mixer leaks oil out the Accessory attachment. I had a service tech from a local company look at it and he told me it cannot be fixed. Something about it is worn out and cannot be repaired. Is there anything I can do to stop the leaking? It is not bad, just really annoying. Oh and the oil level is full right at the line in the middle of the glass. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP.

Re: HOBART H600 Leaks oil.
There's an o-ring that goes around the attachment shaft,if you get a flashlight and look into the hole you will see a screw (left handed threads),remove screw and pull out shaft.Put the o-ring on and install the shaft and screw.

A good standard 90 wt oil is what is ok for the gearcase. This is an old email from a hobart service tech and they recomend a special oil ordered from them. So you can decide which you want to use. "EXXON SPARTAN EP-150 (6 oz)" in the M802 planetary. Hobart part #102973-13. This IS NOT a food grade oil. If you mixer is leaking you shouldhave it serviced. Service, parts , lubricants and information canbe obtained by contacting your local Hobartoffice in Pittsburgh@ (412) 788-5380. Steve Davis Field Engineer -
below is a copy of an e-mail from Horartservice.com. I searched the web forhours for the correct oil and could not find any info so I e-mailed Hobart.
The Planetary is a different part from the transmission andthe sight glass on a M802 is for the oil in the transmission.
The answer that Hobart gave is not an NSF oil. Ineeded the oil for the planetary section on a model M802. Even the directionssay that it is normal for a drop of oil to occasionally drip from the seal.That is where the dough hook attaches.
I am in the process of researching the oil and Exxon / Mobildoes make a NSF version. I just need to find somewhere I can buy less then a 55-gallondrum. The above mixer only uses 6 ounces.
Take care and stay safe

first thing, there is no 2 phase pwr. there are only single phase or three phase.you have 2 choices either you can convert mixer from 3phase to 1phase which will be expensive, or you can get a rotophase which will make 1phase pwr to 3phase pwr to run mixer, dont go with static phase inverter, only the rotophase inverter
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
Offer a free pizza night to your biggest & strongest friends and as they walk in the door tell them they can eat all they want but, they have to move your mixer in return. Most of your larger, well known rental places should have what we call in the business as roller skates or appliance moving casters. They are a tripod type heavy duty caster that is placed under each corner of the mixer and can either be strapped or bolted down. You could also call a local commercial kitchen equip service & install company like Ecolab GCS, they move & install equipment. 800-822-2303
