Well, I was attempting to replace my speed lever. In the process I removed the back cap (electrical circuit board) and the two screws on the side (flat, springs with magnets attached). After I replaced...


Hello Lora,

I understand that you took you speed lever out to replace it and you took the brushes out of each side of the unit. The reason that the unit will not start is more than like the brushes are not installed the proper direction.

1. Unplug the machine
2. Shine a light in the hole on the hole on the side of the unit. You will notice a notch or a piece sticking out.
3. Take one of the brushes (magnet looking things) put the notch and the cut out in the same corner.
4. Repeat the samething with the other side.
5. Plug in and check and see if it runs

This should solve your problem with the brushes. IF you have any more questions about this mixer please post it to this discussion.

THank you for choosing FixYa.com

TURNED ON MIXER, BEATERS WOULD NOT ROTATE. ATTEMPTED TO REINSERT BEATERS TURNED ON AND MIXER STARTED TO SPARK. IS MIXER REPAIRABLE OR BETTER TO PURCHASE A NEW ONE?


You can try to replace the batteries again and see where that gets you.
As far as repair if the batteries don't work, I would recommend getting a new one.
Also check to see if it is still covered under the manufacturer's warranty period.
Good Luck

Hobart A 200 Mixer


There are four possibilities to look at here. Assuming your mixer has a normal capacitor start motor (older a200's used a different style motor), possibilities are, in order of likelihood:

Motor start capacitor
Start switch (electronic or mechanical)
Burned wiring
Motor start winding

The start capacitor is located at the rear of the mixer. Remove the rear cover (4 screws) and pull the cover towards you. Disconnect one wire from the capacitor and test with any multimeter.

The start switch, if electronic, is able to be tested, but not very easily. Once you've eliminated the other possibilities, it's time to replace the (electronic) start switch. If the motor has a mechanical start switch, it's easy to test: Remove the two wires at the rear of the motor and test for continuity with the motor stationary. A multimeter should show near zero ohms for a good mechanical start switch.

Burned wiring should be easy to spot with some careful inspection around the motor, capacitor, and start switch.

Start winding: Look closely at the stator (stationary part of the motor). If some of the copper windings look significantly darker in color than the others, it's likely the start windings were overheated (the start windings are the thinner copper wires - if you look closely, approximately half of the wires are thinner than the other half). Look for a wiring diagram behind the power switch and determine which wires leading to the start switch and/or capacitor are for the start windings and test for continuity across the start winding. You should read a fairly small value such as 5 - 15 ohms. Values significantly outside this range could indicate a partially open or partially shorted start winding.

Have a A200 Mixer, when turned on, you have to spin it by hand then it runs fine. Whats wrong


The answer is clearly in the starting circuit which doesn't have too many parts, but depends on the type of starting circuit your mixer uses (electronic or mechanical start switch). I'm assuming your mixer isn't very old, as the old units used brushed motors which did not have starting circuits.

The parts of the starting circuit are the motor start winding, the start capacitor and the start switch (probably electronic in your case which is a small silver box with four wire terminals on it). The capacitor should be tested with a multimeter after verifying it's not holding a charge (check with multimeter set to DC Volts, mixer unplugged, should read zero volts).
Start winding should be tested with the meter to measure ohms. Locate the wires leading to the motor (hopefully only three wires) and you should get a reading for all three combinations of measurements (wire 1-to-wire 2, 2-to-3, 1-to-3) if meter indicates open on any of these, motor stator is bad(this is pretty rare and quite expensive).
Electronic start switches are not very simple to test, but if the capacitor and motor test out OK with the meter, and all the wiring is intact (look closely for loose wires, burned wires, poorly crimped terminals, etc.) then it must be the start switch.

Hello again, BCPSBT. I’m sorry, but I’m just a little confused because neither the Part List nor the Owner’s Manuals go into any detail about changing/replacing the lubrication grease in your mixer, so I’m not sure what you are referring to when you say your system ‘times out’ when you get to page 10 when you attempt to download it?
The Parts List manual is only 8 pages. Are you perhaps attempting to download the Owner Instruction and Recipe manual instead, which is much longer?
The reason you need the Parts List Manual K45SSWH-0.pdf (2730.37 KB) is to see the ‘exploded views’ which will aid you in the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer. The best instructions for regreasing you mixer are from these two websites:

I’m sorry I don’t have more specific step by step instructions to offer you. Sometimes you have to step out in faith and trust that you can actually accomplish the work yourself.
I wish you good luck in completing your ‘oil’ change.
Good luck and have fun. I hope this provides a little more clarification. Howard, Burke, VA
If this solution was helpful, please rate it, thanks! – hslincoln

My Hobart mixer is hard to start. I have to keep


take off the side cover where gear shifter is, you probably have the original arrow hart contactor in there ,that part is obsolete but you can get a kit from hobart to upgrade the control circuit

Pastry Chef said mixer will not start.


Depending on what you were mixing for 1/2 hour, you could have overheated & burned out the motor.
