First, there is a double set screw (one on top of the other - if they are both there) towards the back of the planetary.
Remove the first screw, it should have a normal tip, not pointy. Run the mixer in 1st and adjust the screw, first out then in. Then repeat in 3rd. You should clearly hear a difference.
If not, you probably need to repack the grease in the transmission. The proper grease is called "Darina II". It's expensive ~ $35 per mixer.

Hobart mixers are NOT designed to change gears while operating. The Hobart planetary gears are like the transmission in your car but, without the clutch. Everytime you change gears while unit is running you are tearing up the brass spacers, gears & seals. Time to call a QUALIFIED service tech to come out & sell you another planetary or rebuild your old one, about $2K, Buy a Varimixer if you want to change gears while unit is running, they use belts. Another planetary premature failur cause, over loading the bowl. Batters & icings- 75% bowl capacity, Dough 65% bowl capacity.

DEFINITELY contact the manufacturer (Hobart) on that one. Sounds like you're having some sort of an internal problem with it (something might be cracked), and in this situation, the best way to go is to contact the manufacturer rather than try to repair it yourself. If you're still under warranty, and you try to open the machine up to fix it yourself, you could wind up VOIDING the warranty, and if you're out of warranty, most repair places won't touch a machine that you've messed with already--too much of a liability.
Just give Hobart a call, and they should be able to help you (if you're in warranty, sometimes even for free!). Their phone number (according to their website, www.hobartcorp.com ) is 1-888-4HOBART (1-888-446-2278)
Good luck! :)
