Hobart A200 Torque in First Gear Problem

Hello. I have a Hobart A200 Serial# 1027912 Spec#3943. My kitchen staff informed me that the torque in first gear has been weakening over the last couple of months. Since this seemed like it could be a brush problem in the motor, I cleaned the copper and replaced the brushes. Seems to have worked.....but only for about a week and now its getting the same type of problem. This does occur when they are making bread dough and I have asked that they not overload the mixer but they have reassured me they haven't. I actually DO believe them. Could there be any other possible reasons to explore? Also, I did go to the hobart site for the part lists, but did not find anything that has the same motor configuration as mine. Any recommendations?
Thanks a million.

A200, 1st gear had no torque(I could stop by hand). Found & replaced key on low speed gear. It sheared it again. It is just shearing it on the flat gear part, not the bevel gear part. I'm thinking it...


I have had my Kitchen Aid since 2003 and never had this problem. If this has happened to you more than once, I would call Kitchen Aid and explain the issue to them. My sister had an Issue with her new Kitchen Aid and they had her bring it for service and they replaced it with a NEW mixer. Kitchen Aid is very good with brand accountability.

I hAVE A HOBART 200T FIRST AND THIRD GEAR WORK FINE BUT SECOND GEAR DOES NOT SEEM TO GRAB WITH ANY TORQUE. WHAT MIGHT BE THE PROBLEM?


I would say without looking at it a key is sheared or gear teeth are worn on the gear.usually its a sheared key,however if the mixer is older they use a dive key assembly which you would have to replace the shaft.I'm a hobart tech and repair these mixers often,any ? let me know.What is the ml # on the data plate?

My 20 qt. mixer has no power in speed #1.


Hi All. Since the original poster has not responded to my request for ML and spec. #'s, I'll offer a solution based on a spec.# 3943 for anyone with the same problem. This is an older model A200 with a solid aluminum gearshift lever.

Stop using the mixer!!!

The slow speed gear (1st. gear) is engaged by a "diving key". Over time this key can wear to the point of failure, or break entirely and will no longer engage. This failure only affects the first gear, allowing the second and third gears to function properly. If you can stop the mixer attachment by hand while in 1st. gear, then you have the above problem. The unit must be serviced. If the key has been sheared there is the potential for a broken piece of this key to get into the trans. grease and cause further damage to the mixer. For a Hobart Tech., this is relatively easy to repair as a minimum number of parts need to be removed in order to expose the diving key.

Call your local Hobart office to schedule a repair. If you've never done any repairs on this model, do not tackle this project by yourself. I you have some experience with this model goto the hobartservice.com website, register for free and then download the parts list. Ensure that you have the list for the 3493 spec.

Good luck!

A200-T Hobart Mixer 1st speed have no torque


Check the spring pin that locks the motor shaft to the main drive gear in the gear box. You should be able to turn the motor from the back at the cooling fins and watch the shaft spin in the gear, that is if the pin is sheared. That is a common problem. if you plan on keeping this machine for a while, i recomend that you spend a little more on a quality spring pin,

good luck.
