Question about Hobart A200 Stand Mixer
I am fairly astute at mechanical devices, but it has me stumped. I rebuilt unit, replaced old style worm shaft and put in new main shaft with diving mechanisms all new. It is slipping in first and second, works fine in third so I know it's not the worm gears. Help, any ideas?

amy, depending on how old your mixer is there are 2 types of clutches for 1st gear.these could be your problems--a key is sheared on the shaft--shaft/gear is broken.the bottom part of the mixer where you put on the attachements is called the planetary,does it look like it has moved down?you could tell if the dough hook,wire whip,ect,ect is hitting the bottom of the bowl.if this is the case its just simply tightening the 2 nuts next to the beater shaft.if this is not the case you would have to dissasemble the transmission.let me know.

When you say lag and catch up. This may not be a issue. I have seen this with dough and a spiral hooks on all sizes of Hobarts the hook and dough get in a position to push the hook forward and the drive gears catch back up the hook. in fist gear on the 20 quart this is common for sure. but its normal. if you have a real slip from a sheared key it will not take long to where you can hold the planetary shaft with your hand and stop it. another slip that might be possible is if your mixer has the first generation worm shaft gear Assembly. when it is worn out it will slip you. this is the shaft that drives directly off the motor. you can tell if it's first Gen by it has a large spring on it. the tow later versions are all keyed to the shaft no chance to slip unless a key shears.

Your A200 was manufactured in 1942. It may well be time for an overhaul. If it were only noisy, I would suggest re-greasing it, as that would quiet it down somewhat. With 60+ years on the unit, the odds suggest rebuild time. Before you commit to that, take the top cover off the unit, remove two dust covers, insert a hi-intensity flashlight into one hole and look inside the other, look for excessive wear on the gears. If you see excessive wear, and still want to re-build then call for a Hobart tech and warm up your checkbook, OR, pose the re-build question to bigg t (the Hobart tech on this website). He may be able to help you out. ricardok45

sometimes you read of other problems and solutions and it puts you at the edge of your seat. in this case of changing the worm gear on the A200F was cake. when you drop the lower end (3/4 acorn and jam nut), pull out yoke (speed select handle) the center transmision shaft and gears pull right out.worm gear easy to change at this point. if you can change a motor bearing, then you can do this job. Note: change seals and bearings as needed,check all gears,keys and spacers for wear and if you go the mile take gears off drive gears, these are the 2 smaller trans shafts put in lath if you have accsess to one if not roll shafts on flat surface to see that shafts have no bends in them. Also remember when you put the bottom back do not over tighten the jam nut,hold and lock acorn nut, should spin free and have about .016 to .030 movement up or down. Lay out all part on cardboard the way they came out. should go back together easy.
