Question about Hobart N50 Stand Mixer

N-50's need restoration

I have two Hobart N-50's in need of ground-up (counter-up?) restoration, and I'm having trouble obtaining a service manual. I'll soon be disassembling them, stripping the paint, etc, and getting ready to order parts. They both seem to have good motors, but the transmissions don't look great (and don't work). I've heard that Hobart is worried that home mechanics might get hurt if they attempt to repair the mixers themselves, but if I can restore/rebuild Italian racing motorcycles (and race them), I think I can tackle a mixer. These mixers don't deserve to wind up in the metal recycling bin- help them have a new lease on life!

Re: N-50's need restoration

What a load! If they REALLY cared for consumer's health and well being, Hobart would put out the information as to how to do it right, rather than have folks just tear into the mixers and put the back together any old way.

What they really want to protect is not consumers, but outrageous repair margins.

I'm OK with that, but have the integrity to call a spade a spade.

What oil should I use for the Hobart Mixer P660?

A good standard 90 wt oil is what is ok for the gearcase. This is an old email from a hobart service tech and they recomend a special oil ordered from them. So you can decide which you want to use. "EXXON SPARTAN EP-150 (6 oz)" in the M802 planetary. Hobart part #102973-13. This IS NOT a food grade oil. If you mixer is leaking you shouldhave it serviced. Service, parts , lubricants and information canbe obtained by contacting your local Hobartoffice in Pittsburgh@ (412) 788-5380. Steve Davis Field Engineer -

Mystery part to a 1950 Hobart N50 Mixer; serial number 997185

Go to, register, then go to select "food machines" in the Product Group, then "mixers"and look for the Discontinued Products, then find the N-50 mixer drawings, they are all there, even the old ones. Look through the "exploded" drawings for your extra parts. It seems to me that the tech who put this together should know if they belong to this mixer or not. Does he work for Hobart? Or is he a repair person who states that he knows how to repair Hobart products. If he does'n't work for Hobart, these parts may have been on his bench BEFORE he looked at your mixer. A true Hobart Tech has access to specs on ALL models and the ability to access the Service Manuals. If you find this solution helpfull, please rate it. ricardok45
