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.

Re: Mixer keeps cutting out! Please help!
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

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.
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
ge is a recitml# and repost, there are 2 p.c.b.for that mixer 1 is a recipe timer for ml#134317,part#916560, the other is a standard timer part#916557, can be bought @ any hobart location, one would assume that the c on the model # stands for corrections. hope this helps, dont forget to vote, monomoy
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.

it has to be torn apart to change grease and it is grease do not put oil in it. but it all is done from top under cover is the top of transmision the round cover comes of and all shafts need to be removed and I sugest a new main shaft seal and hub seal while your at it.
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
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 exhuasted.as 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.
