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.

Hobart D300 is stuck in speed 3, any ideas?


Best guess is that the gear for 3rd speed is seized together with it's brass bushing and the center, large transmission shaft. I don't recall which gear is for 3rd, but the transmission has two gears (2nd and 3rd speed) which have brass bushings in them. The brass bushing should spin freely on the center shaft (when in final position - sometimes they pull off the shaft tough, but spin freely when in final position, my opinion is that this is OK), and the gear should spin freely of the brass bushing.
My guess is that the 3rd speed gear, being seized to the center shaft, cannot freely idle on the center shaft, which would result in being stuck in 3rd gear.

Sounds like the keys in the shifting sleeve may be sheared. The transmission will have to be disassembled and checked for broken parts. Check www.hobartservice.com for your local Hobart office.

My Hobart D300 mixer appears to be leaking oil/grease


Hi,I'm a hobart tech and repair these mixer's often.If you see oil in the drip cup then the center shaft seal in the transmission is worn.If there is oil near the transformer then the motor shaft seal is also bad.Hobart doesnt release their service manuals to the public but if you go to their site www.hobartcorp.com you can register for free and get a parts manual thats helpful.If you need help with the repair let me know,i can step you through it.

Problem with the 3rd gear on Hobart D300


Hobart won't give up service manuals The slide for your shift fork may be froze or corroded at top. The gear setups are fairly simple. The mainshaft nut comes off counterclockwise. The top gear has one way rollers with shims under the large washer. This gear assy must go back in the right way or you will break gears as soon as you start it.These mixers corode a lot at the top gearbox when they sit idle from moisture. Also check for broken gear teeth that may be jaming up he works. If you want to sell it let us know.
