Question about Hobart Food Mixers
V1401 slips in all gears; used to stop/brake when placed in 2nd or 3rd, but seems to be getting worse. Is adjusting the planetary brake something a slightly mechanically-inclined person could do (assuming that will solve the problem)?
Take the top cover off,in front of you is the brake.Turn the mixer on and you will see it spin (put it in 1st gear),stop the mixer.on the right side you will see a pin that catches the brake flange,if its worn you can replace it,if its not worn then the brake needs adjusting as it acts like a clutch.Let me know,im a hobart tech band repair these units often.

You should adjust or repair the clutch, the brake doesn't have anything to do with it.
