My Hobart mixer HL-400 shots off undr the heavy loads


that is because you are overloading it. the 400 watt is only a medium power. I have a 800 watt stand and i do load it and it takes it.
do you have it on an extension cord?
are you using the wrong attachment?
regards

My mixer revs up full bore and then quits, on any speed level


http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%208211761.pdf

has the breakdown of the parts. Item 8 is the controller board and item 9 is a sensor which monitors the speed. If either one is fried it will run wide open and then quit.

My 20 qt. mixer has no power in speed #1.


Hi All. Since the original poster has not responded to my request for ML and spec. #'s, I'll offer a solution based on a spec.# 3943 for anyone with the same problem. This is an older model A200 with a solid aluminum gearshift lever.

Stop using the mixer!!!

The slow speed gear (1st. gear) is engaged by a "diving key". Over time this key can wear to the point of failure, or break entirely and will no longer engage. This failure only affects the first gear, allowing the second and third gears to function properly. If you can stop the mixer attachment by hand while in 1st. gear, then you have the above problem. The unit must be serviced. If the key has been sheared there is the potential for a broken piece of this key to get into the trans. grease and cause further damage to the mixer. For a Hobart Tech., this is relatively easy to repair as a minimum number of parts need to be removed in order to expose the diving key.

Call your local Hobart office to schedule a repair. If you've never done any repairs on this model, do not tackle this project by yourself. I you have some experience with this model goto the hobartservice.com website, register for free and then download the parts list. Ensure that you have the list for the 3493 spec.

Good luck!

Oil spilled during shipping


This kind of unit are lubricated with grase paste. If the unit stays inactive for a long time, or if the motor and gears are overheating the grease paste gets melted into thin oil, and that will cause the leak.
The oil leak is usually coming from the gear box inside the appliance.
To fix the problem the unit must be taken apart, and cleaned. After this step, there is need to spread again the grease, using special foodsafe grease paste.
Disassemblying the gear box is not that easy, you will need previous experience and a gear puller to do the job properly and safely.
This appliances are also held with security screws to prevent the users from taking apart the unit, and can only be disassembled using a Security screwdriver tip.

The grease can be purchased here, check at the bottom of the page: Kenwood chef food mixer Grease.
