Question about Hobart A200 Stand Mixer

1 Answer

Mixer keeps cutting out! Please help!

We have had this mixer(Hobart AE200)for 3 years now and it was not new when we bought it. Firstly i should say we use the machine to mix very low water content concrete, so it gets a fairly rough time, and other than the odd greasing it has had no maintenace to speak of. In the past the machine would occationaly not turn on during jobs, this was usually after the machine was in use for a long period of time(over 1 hour), This we put down to over heating. However, recently after being on for just 5-10 minutes if it is stopped and then restarted it will not switch on. Is there something that can be done, a low cost solution would be helpful. I await your response. Thank you Alasdair

As far as I know this is a food mixer. Concrete will definitely cause the overload to trip. Frequent triping has caused the overload to weaken and hence trip at lower values. You probably need to replace the overl;oad

Hobart A-200 mixer gets hot and weak. Motor housing gets too hot to keep your hand on it. Service tech told me the motors usually don't go out. What other problem could it be?

I'd say you're most likely overloading the mixer. This mixer, and others similar in size, are frequently overloaded by people making pizza dough. If you are making dough, keep in mind the A-200's capacity is 9 lb. of 40% A.R. pizza dough, mixed for 5 minutes maximum. If you need to mix longer, the batch must be cut down even smaller, but I don't even know if you're mixing dough.

Try running the mixer unloaded (i.e. nothing in the bowl) for ten minutes or more and see if it gets hot. If it still gets hot, the motor's start circuit (varies depending upon age of the A-200; Hobart used numerous motors in the A-200 over the years, incorporating different starting circuits) most likely has problems. If it doesn't get hot when operating unloaded, then you're probably overheating the mixer by overloading it.

Need to buy a switch for the c-100 hobart mixer?

Hi. Hobart no longer makes or sells parts for the C-100 model. It's considered obsolete.

Your best bet is to locate a used restaurant equipment supply place and ask around. Sometimes these places keep old mixers for parts. Another option is to do a search on eBay, as there are several sellers that deal in obsolete parts. Failing that, a local electrician may be able to fabricate a new one or adapt some some other type of switch.

With a unit as old as this, it's important to maintain a good re-greasing schedule (once every five years), and your mixer will keep on delivering the goods for years to come.

If you found this solution usefull, please rate it as fixya. Good Luck! ricardok45

Hobart A-200 serial # ?

Hi. Your mixer was manufactured in 1967. If you plan on keeping it, take the outer cover off, gently remove the two metal dust caps with a small screwdriver and look into each opening with a good flashlight to determine the quality and amount of grease in the trans. case.

Ideally the grease should almost fill the space with no oil visible. If you need to look further, I suggest that you open up the transmission cover, to determine the condition of the grease that lubricates the transmission. If you find that oil is seperating from the grease. you would do well to remove all of the oil and old grease and replace it with either Shell Darina EP-2, or Chevron FM ALC EP-2 grease. It's a messy job, but it will add years of life to your mixer.

Check the planetary seal, remove, clean and regrease the planetary gearing. With a mixer of this age, you never know if it has ever been serviced since it's manufacture or not. The grease must totaly encapsulate the trans. gears. As the grease breaks down it's level lowers and it leaves some of the upper gears without lubrication, and will result in preventable wear.

Good luck! If you found this solution helpful, please rate it. ricardok45

Old hobart s-30 mixer oil

man you got an oldie but goodie mixer!im a hobart service tech for 8 years and have only seen about two dozen,unfortuantly parts for these units are for the sight glass they do become cloudy over time and you cant determine the oil level.use a heavy gear case oil.the only way of telling is to drain the oil or if the unit is loud you should probably cange the oil.
