Question about Hobart N50 Stand Mixer

1 Answer

Change Hobart N-50 110 V / 60 Hz to 230 V / 50 Hz

Hi,

I'm interested in buying a used Hobart N-50 in the US since I didn't find one here so far. To use it here, I would have to change it to 230 V / 50 Hz or to use it with a transformator that changes this to 110 V / 50 Hz,

Does anyone know if it is possible to modify the US model to a European model or would I need a new motor for that?

Thanks in advance!

You would need to provide the correct power to match the maching, or replace the rotor, stator, controls to match the higher voltage, and worm gears to correct the speed, from 60 to 50 Hz. Unless you don't mind it running slower. Cheaper to find one that matches your local spec..

Can I rewire a Hobart VCM-25 Mixer/Cutter 460v to run on 220/240v?


There is likely a nameplate with a wiring diagram inside. Without being familiar with the specific model, I can't tell you where. If you can find it, it will show both 460 and 230 volt configurations. Regardless, you will find inside the wiring box (where the conduit comes into the mixer) there are four wires corresponding to two windings - for 460 volts, the windings are wired in series. For 230 volts, they should be wired in parallel.

My hobart n50 mixer,when pluged in does nothing at all. why? and what to do?


The N50 is a heavy duty / commercial counter top mixer. It is available in several different versions for different power sources. Make sure yours is the model for use with the power available at your location. The power versions are:

100-120/60/1, 100/50/1, 230/50/1, 220/60/1 and 230/60/1


This lists the information in the following format: voltage/frequency/phase. If used in the US or Canada (and many other parts of the world) you would most likely want the 100-120/60/1 or the 230/60/1 version. All are single phase, so this shouldn't be an issue to worry about. Use of any of the other versions could result in shortened life expectancy of the mixer or immediate, catastrophic failure of the mixer and possibility of burns, shock or electrocution if connection is attempted.

If the mixer matches the power available, check for proper wiring at the source point of connection and in the mixer. You may need an electrician to change the power at the connection point from 100-120/60/1 to 230/60/1 (or vice-versa since BOTH are available in North America). Also check to be sure that fuses or circuit breakers in the electrical panel are intact and on. Do not overlook GFI outlets if using the 100 to 120/60/1 version. Reset any tripped GFI outlet. If still unable to operate, verify that power is present at the connection point. If unable to operate, contact an electrician to check the power and wiring of the mixer.

The mixer data sheet is available here.

Can I cange 3x230v up to 400v


Are you stating you have an A200 mixer that is 3 phase 230 volt?
I was under the impression all A200's were single phase. The D300 floor model came 3 phase. In any regard, to change the input voltage to any maching, you would have to replace the rotor, stator, and control group, including wiring. It has to be kept to orgiinal specifications, and tech support would have to authorise the change. As you can imagine, it's not really an option. If you change from 50 to 60 Hz, you would have to change your worm gears also.

Hobart N50 stator assembly replacement


You can go to www.hobartservice.com. select parts and type the machine ML number from the data plate. here are 5 different ML options, otherwise I would have given you the part number.
It will open an exploded view of YOUR machine's build, complete with part numbers.
You can then call your nearest Hobart dealer for a cost and availability. They are still a current model, and for their size, an excellent mixer worth repairing.

Hobart D300 Mixer, Will not shift from 2nd to 1st gear without coming to full stop, Ideas as to source of problem? It also seems to be making increased noise.


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 A200T General Info / Back cover plate gasket


I'm a service tech for hobart,I'll type your serial number into our database and see what it brings up.The changes that have been made---older units use a mechanical start switch on the motor,the new units use an electronic start switch.the old units center shaft and gears have changed.the older units dont have bowl guards and the new units do.(this is a cage that goes around the bowl).The gasket that your talking about is just that--a thin paper.The paper wears and you get that symptom you describe and its normal.I'll get back to you.

Im not bias on my opinion,but from the repairs i do on mixers hobart mixers are far superior than other manufactures.Hobart is over 100 yr old company that started with mixers and their service dept. is good.unlike any mixer out on the market they mirror off of hobart.
