Question about Hobart D340-6007 Mixer

2 Answers

The mixer rpm is too fast

When mixing powders we need to operate the mixer at a slower speed than the slowest available speed.

    How easy would it be to change the gearing in order to slow down a hobart mixer?
     

  • David Shaub May 11, 2010

    It would be practically impossible to do it efficiently. The right gear ratio as well as torque has to be figured in, like the engineers did when they desighed it. Another option, would be to cut your dry batches into two seperate batches.

  • David Shaub May 11, 2010

    They are designed to run at a specific speed at the slowest setting. To modify this, will labor and burn out the motor once liquids are adden. They will add drag to the motor. Dry powders only, are not normally mixed with this type of machine. Normallr, a twin, open screw type mixer is used. There will still be a lot of dust though.

Speeds are controlled by the gearing ratio of the trans. you cant make mixer rotate slower . you could vary the voltage to the mixer but that is prob. not recommended. might be o.k. if mixer is a 3-phase,

No change available. The motor speed if fixed and the 3 speed transmission has fixed gear ratio's. Look at the new HL300 model. It has a stirr speed which is slower than first speed.
Does your mixer havea safety cage? If not, you will need to install one before too long , or the machine will not comply with current safety standards. Put the cost of the safety kit towards the HL300.

What is the rpm of artisan 300watts


On low speed roughly 1 rotation of the planetary per second. On high speed it should be the maximum speed that motor can run at, too fast to count that's for sure.

How do I fix my Kitchen Aid Professional 5 mixer that will not change speeds?


The speed adjustment is defective. You will likely need a service centre if you cannot open it up and find the problem and change any defective parts etc.

KitchenAid mixer speed surges high and low uncontrolably


You can get the high speed back if you want to play with those three screws. there is a timing scheme for your mixer and it is set and adjusted by manipulating those 3 screws. The bottom center screw is for speeds 6 8 and 10. The best choice is to replace this switch, about $10 bucks on ebay.

KA 600 is making a clinking noise when mixing.


Tll,
It sounds like it could be an issue with the gear, the motor housing could have a crack in it. The problem could be much more involved as well. Put the unit on the slowest speed and see if you can stop the mixer from spinning. If it hiccups or stutters, that means you have a stripped gear. If you cannot stop the unit using your hand ON THE SLOWEST speed then there could be a problem with the motor housing or the motor itself not being held in place properly.

Kitchenaid stand mixer KSM90EM turns off when going to the left on speeds 4 - 6. Makes a bit of noise at stir speed, but runs in time. Also noticed white dust powder in small amounts on the speed...


Get a Copy of the Repair Part List from Kitchenaid.com.
You need to adjust the mixer speeds:

Remove the screw holding the End Cover and locate the three screws from the Control Plate.
All three (2 top left and right, and 1 bottom) must be adjusted. Make sure that the Control
Plate is not damaged in any way, contacts are not charred or burnt,etc...

1. Loosen the lock nuts enough & Turn the 2 top screws clockwise until they cannot be turned
anymore. Leave the bottom screw alone for now.
2. Use a dab of white paint or paper whiteout to mark the positions of the Phillips screws.
3. Plug in your mixer and Set the speed selector to "Stir".
4. Turn each top screw One full turn couterclockwise (alternating between Left and Right)
Keep making one full turn at the time (for both left and right) until the motor starts running.
5. Put your hand near the Agitator shaft and allow it to brush your finger slightly. Use your
watch or clock and start counting the number of times the shaft touches your finger in
60 seconds. The correct count should be 60 RPM (Rounds Per Minute). If it is less
or more than 60, give each screw 1/4 turn counterclockwise or clockwise and start counting
again. Now tighten both lock nuts.
6. Set the speed selector to "6" and turn the bottom screw either clockwise or counterclockwise
to achieve a speed of 180 RPM.

For your reference, the planetary RPM's for the 5-qt. tilt-head Artisan Stand Mixer are as follows:
Stir speed - 60
Speed 2 - 95
Speed 4 - 135
Speed 6 - 180
Speed 8 - 225
Speed 10 - 280

Classic mixer changing speeds by itself ?


Contact Kitchenaid Parts and order a new speed switch. Be prepared to wait a month for it to arrive. It's relatively easy to replace. Be sure to unplug the mixer first. Make note of which wire goes where! If the switch goes bad again in the future, buy a different brand of mixer. ricardok45

Loud and throws flour all over


Do you find the motor running too fast at the lowest setting? Then you need to bring it to someone to adjust the low speed setting. If you are preparing double batches you are over loading the mixer and/or using too fast a speed setting to mix. Don't try to double recipes just because the bowl can handle the volume, the motor cannot and will not last very long if stressed mixing dough frequently.

KitchenAid K5SS mixer speeds up beyond set speed.


I have the same mixer and I believe your problem is the governor that is on the back of the motor. You can figure it out by downloading the repair manual here:http://store.mendingshed.com/kitaidparts.html The manual has all the info you need; including a troubleshooting section. The governor is availible from the the same site here:http://store.mendingshed.com/kagovernor.html What tipped me off on my K5SS was looking at the governor as it ran and I could see it moving back and forth; not steady like it should. Good luck!
