Question about Hobart Food Mixers
It doesn't make any noticeable noises such as grinding and continues on. It does this with both heavy loads bread dough but also with light icings. We recently had the Wheel bushing Worm gear replaced, but I believe it was doing this prior. Grease was repacked when the repair was made. Is this normal or could this be the cause/symptom of the gear shearing on certain spots.
It sounds like either a partly stripped gear or a broken driving pin. If it is one of those options though I'm surprised it has not stopped completely.

Hi I work on these all the time, sounds like a tooth from the one of the gears has sheerd off so making the gear rings rotate when they should sit solid in its casing..... you need to open her up or get a tech to look at it £150 is an approx fix

Your mixer was built in 1942 and from the sound of it, it's been without grease for some time. Before you dismantle it, try adding new grease to it. This is the less expensive and less time consuming approach. The grease product to look for is Shell Darina XL EP-2, Try to find a local Shell Distributor and see if they'll sell you about 4 tubes of 400 grams each. This grease is compatible with most other greases, so you won't have to remove the old grease before you add the new stuff.
Remove the four screws that attach the Hub to the body of the mixer, pull off the hub. You now have access to the transmission area. work the new grease into the cavity, try to get as much grease as you can toward the back of the compartment. This will be a very messy job unless you have, or acquire a grease gun that the tubes will fit in. Lay the mixer on it's back and let gravity help you to get a lot of grease down through the hub opening. Keep adding grease until you've greased up to the hub opening. Grease the hub gear and then re-install the hub. Raise the mixer to vertical and start up the mixer, letting it run for a couple of minutes. Stop the mixer and shift gears,, once again start the mixer and repeat this procedure for the last gear. Listen for the sounds it was making before, they should be silent or at least muted. If it's still making loud noises, You may well have to take it apart for an overhaul. Dont overlook the planetary gearing, this gearing is not bathed in grease like the trans. Remove the planetery assembly, clean and inspect the planetary gear and the large ring gear in the mixer body. Regrease both and re-assemble. Your mixer is now as quiet as it will get short of a complete overhaul. If this solution works, it has only cost you a few bucks and a bit of time, making this. solution a good one, unless you still have the major noise issues.
I f you've found this solution helpfull, please rate it and Good Luck! ricardok45

sometimes you read of other problems and solutions and it puts you at the edge of your seat. in this case of changing the worm gear on the A200F was cake. when you drop the lower end (3/4 acorn and jam nut), pull out yoke (speed select handle) the center transmision shaft and gears pull right out.worm gear easy to change at this point. if you can change a motor bearing, then you can do this job. Note: change seals and bearings as needed,check all gears,keys and spacers for wear and if you go the mile take gears off drive gears, these are the 2 smaller trans shafts put in lath if you have accsess to one if not roll shafts on flat surface to see that shafts have no bends in them. Also remember when you put the bottom back do not over tighten the jam nut,hold and lock acorn nut, should spin free and have about .016 to .030 movement up or down. Lay out all part on cardboard the way they came out. should go back together easy.
