Question about Hobart HL600 Legacy Stand Mixer
I purchased a used 60 Qt Hobart mixer, here are the specs:
Volts: 440 Cycle 60, phase 3
I do have 440 3 phase power in my building. Anyway this unit was wired directly, the problem is they disconnected the power cord completly, all that is showing is the wire grommet.
My question is where does the wire connect to from the power source? I am having the elctrician coming in this Monday and would appreciate an answer as soon as possible.
>>I have Read the Conversation between you and the Other Expert here.
>>If you Bypassed the Transformer and the Unit Worked, then the Transformer is the Wrong Transformer or is Bad.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Have you opened the box on the mixer,there should be a connection block there with three poles,generrally these are marked L1,L2,L3 those are the power connections,there may be a fourth for ground,if not there should be a screw attached directly to the frame for it,I imagine there may other connections to the block for the switches and if there are any low voltage circuits contained inside.I tried to find a wiring diagram but Hobart only allows their technicians to have these(trade secrets)I do triple phase electric work for a living so this is quite familiar to me.I'm not supposed to have contact with users outside of fixya,but if you can send me a clear picture of the mixer and the internal of the electrical box on the mixer,I can definitley solve this for you.Post back and I will give you my email if you want to send the pics.

If possible can you give me a photo of the terminal where the electrician would connect the 3 phase motor, if not you would do like this, arrange the three terminal so that we can temporarily name the three wires. lets say line 1, line 2. then line 3, the trick is here you will be needing an extra capacitor to do this any at least 450vac capacitor will do. i also hope you have an extra 3 phase breaker just for testing this unit. you will wire the two terminal lets say 1 & 2 directly to the breaker you gonna have to connect the capacitor to the 3rd terminal.of the mixer and try to intermittently connect it to any of the two terminal just to see the rotation of your mixer it will rotate clockwise or counter clockwise also have the clip ammeter tester ready.it should be running not the normal speed but it will rotate.if mixer run you have a working mixer. the finalizing step would be to connect it directly. still the same process but instead of capacitor you will now connect it direct. lets say 1 and 2 will be interchange if rotation of the motor is reversed. might be also better if you can take down and note each ampere reading on the lines, they must have the same current or the mixer or breaker will trip. dont forget to rate me when it works

The electrician will remove the access panel on the machine and wire it directly from the power source to the machine.
He will have the option of wiring 440 or 220 volt depending on your preference.
If you prefer the machine be mobile, a special receptacle can be installed and a pig tail installed on the mixer, however I would recommend the direct installation.
The installation will not be an issue of concern.
Good luck, let me know.

I think I understand your question.
The cable from the power source will go though the grommet into the housing where all the connection terminals are.
There should be a way to remove the housing which has the grommet -- underneath you'll see the terminals.
There may be wires left from the old connection, but it sounds like the source cable was completely removed when the mixer it was deinstalled.
Does that answer your question?
