Question about Hobart A200 Stand Mixer

1 Answer

Grinding I was using the hobart mixer at work to attempt some french bread.  No one uses it except for mashed potatoes and ranch dressing.  The 4 pounds of dough i put it, and the unstable table it sits on caused it to inch forward and take a nose dive.  After we put it back on the table, the power comes on and it seems to work at full speed but there is a terrible grinding noise in the motor.  Please help, the bosses think i was negligent. albert

Re: grinding

Sorry to hear of your misfortune,im a hobart tech and i can tell you right off the bat it would be almost impossible to tell you the solution unless i seen the more specific about the noise and where you think its coming from,if its in the transmission i could walk you thru it but it would be a task.first thing to check is that there are no cracks on the mixer.all speeds work?1-2-3.

My artisan mixer will not turn back on

Make sure it's unplugged, remove and inspect the carbon brushes one at a time under those black screws on the side. They are keyed with one corner of the square ground off so will only go in properly one way so eyes open when you take them out. If they are less than 10mm long replace them. Next would be look under the back cover for a broken wire to the black square speed control plate. Broken wires are only likely to be one of the bottom 2 on either side. Any more testing is going to require a multimeter.

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

What can you use for a hobart h600

The Hobart H600 is a 2 horse power, 60 quart mixer, it can be used for many things in the kitchen. It can be used to make about any kind of food that needs mixed, wiped or kneaded. It works well in a pizzeria for all facets of making pizza from the dough, to shredding the cheese with an attachment, to a restaurant that makes mashed potatoes and fresh bread, to a full service bakery.
However, the biggest thing that you need to know is the capacity of the machine. As overloading the machine can cause damage that may be costly and take a technician to fix. I do not know what attachments you currently have so I will go over a few of them.

The main attachments are a Wire whip, Flat beater, and Dough hook. There are three different types a "D" wire whip (has many wires and is evenly spaced) this is used to whip egg whites, whipping whip cream, etc. The "C Wing" (has six tines in it) is used for items that are heavy for the D wire whip, like whipping potatoes or icing. The last is the "I" whip is similar to the D wire whip just with less tines. The flat beater is used to mashing or mixing examples are mashed potatoes before they are whipped, cake mixes that do not require whipping, batters and icing. The Dough hook is used for kneading dough examples are pizza dough, bread dough, etc.

The biggest thing when using your mixer is to know its capacity for the material that you are mixing. All though this is one of the bigger machines it still has limits. You should refer to this the following link for the capacity of your machine:

There are also a few attachments that can be put on to the No. 12 attachment hub. A few of these are a vegetable slicer-grater and meat grinder.

more than likely you have an electrical problem,loose wire, bare wire.
