Chances are you have a 3 PH motor and the motor is running backwards. Take the plug and unscrew the 3 or 4 screws. look at the wiring and change any two of the wires. DO NOT CHANGE THE GROUND WIRE! That one is usually green, but can be noticed by the curved tip as well.
If you do not have a three phase mixer, chances are your dough is too thick or too wet.

Dough hook will not come off


I had the same problem too. There should be maybe 1/4" of loose vertical play of the dough hook (or similar attachment) on the agitator shaft. The hook locks in place rotationally on the shaft until it is pushed up. Before you try to turn the dough hook backwards in an attempt to remove it, push it upwards and hold it up, then rotate.

Hi, We have a 3phase Hobart D300 Mixer onboard and the cooks are complaining that there is not enough grunt. I have checked the 3 speeds and they are working finee however when dough is being mixed it...


Hello Veelec,

As the machine is mixing dough it seems that it is getting sluggish. This is caused by the machine being over loaded. Although it is a 30 qt mixer that is for liquid filled capacity. I do not know what kind of dough you are mixing so I will give you a light to medium dough and then the heavy dough capacity. Also on this machine all dough should be mixed in speed 1 or low to keep from damaging the machine.

You will need to know the Absorption Rate (AR) of you dough, to find this you take the weight of the water divide the weight of the water and multiply by 100.

AR = Water Weight / Flour Weight x 100%

The higher the percent the higher the capacity the lower the percent the lower the capacity. Also the temperature of the water will have to be considered as the colder the water the harder the dough it is to mix the dough the batch should be reduced by 15% to 20% for water temperature between 65-75 degrees.

For a Light to Medium dough with a 60% AR the unit capacity is 45 pounds in first speed.
For a Heavy dough at 55% the units capacity is 30 pounds in first speed.

The above capacities are for bread doughs, if you are doing pizza dough, dough nut dough or wheat dough please post back to this thread and I will help you to find the capacities.

I hope that I have helped you with your problem and would like to thank you for using FixYa to find a solution to your problem.

Dough hook stuck immediately after use


I just got my dough hook unstuck! The problem was the bolt at the top of the dough hook. This bolt is used to adjust the height of the dough hook. This bolt came loose while mixing and went up towards the mixer. The force of the spinning actually tightened this bolt against the mixer so when I tried to release the dough hook by lifting and turning, it wouldn't lift. The bolt was in the way! The solution is to loosen this bolt. You'll need a thin wrench that's about 15 mm. You can test loosening this bolt on the other attachments since they loosen in the same manner. You'll have to bend the white shield down slightly to get the wrench in there. It's a tight squeeze even with a thin wrench. Hold on to the lower end of the dough hook and turn the wrench counterclockwise when looking down at it. Once you loosen the bolt, you'll be able to turn the lower portion of the dough hook to lower it. Then you can lower the bolt further. Once you have them low enough, you can remove the dough hook like normal - lift and turn. Sure beats boxing it up, shipping it for repair and paying for shipping both ways!

Is 300 w mixer powerful enough to mix bread dough?


Your mixer is easily able to handle the kneading of bread dough. Please advise:

9 cups of all purpose white flour, maximum.

6 cups of specialty flour, maximum. This is any flour besides all purpose white.

Bread doughs are only to be needed on speed 2, and never for longer than 7 minutes.

This is all stated in the Use and Care guide for the mixer itself. If these guidelines are not followed, it may lead to a product failure.

Dry clumps in pizza dough


Hi. You should consider a few things. They type of hook you use, can greatly affect your end result. If you're making a yeasted dough with a high protein percentage 12-13%, you should be using an "ED" hook, this is a spiral hook that has a sharp turn at the tip. You can find them on eBay for a competitive price. I believe that Hobart also sells them, but for a higher price. They are very good for mixing pizza type doughs, they also do an excellent job kneading the dough.

Have you checked the flour for lumps before it goes into the mixer? Have you tried sifting the flour?
Are you adding all the liquid and flour at once? If so try adding flour in stages to all the liquid. If you find that this solution helps you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45

Beater jams


You are going to DESTROY YOUR MIXER by kneading dough with the flat beater. Read the directions. They spell it out in big letters. Only use the dough hook for dough; only use speed 2.
If the mixer generated enough torque to knead dough with the flat beater (it doesn't), it would tear up and overwork the dough. As it is, you're lucky you didn't strip a gear.
