    Thank you for your solution, the problem is either the contactor coil diode or the contactor. Finding a Siemens 3 TG 2100 contactor or a Siemens 3TX4210-OD diode.

    I have an old a-200 that was working fine. I replaced a worn power cord and now it seems that the power switch isn't working right. It is spring loaded and won't stay in the "on" position. It does not even engage when i hold it in the "on" position. Do i have a bad power switch?

Cement Mixer won't run or start


Is there power in the wall socket. Check with a lamp?
Does the motor get warm when plugged in for a while?

Does the motor have a starting capacitor? Look for a metal tube on the side an inch or so in diameter. Those are AC electrolytic capacitors that are a common failure item.

Hobart A200 won't start


If the gearing is all free to move and you replaced the motor capacitor that only leaves the motor. If you can remove the motor and test it "out of the gearing" that would confirm it. You have wired the capacitor correctly and used the correct one? Just asking! Are you sure the gearing isn't jammed up?

It just quit while I was using on high speed.


The lady's model is a K45SS and it does not have a Hall Effect Senor, Her machine di not go to high speed, it STOPPED!!, and that is all we know. If the mixer motor still runs or operates then it is a gear problem and yes it would be the nylon worm gear made to fail in order to protect the motor from burning out. if it won't start at all no noise or movement then it is an electrical problem and it could be the speed control switch the brushes the phase control board the govorner or the motor. what is needed is more information from the lady seeking help.

Motor not spinning in hobart 60 qt mixer


Check manually after disconnecting the motor if this is jammed. If so the motor must be reset as the bearings are faulty and so the rotor seems to get stuck with the coil core.
Also if there is high drain with heat it is possible that the coils are faulty and might need an insulation failure test.

MY kitchen Aide mixer was running alittle rough /loud and now has stop completely. It is approx 24 years old and has never had any problems. It is hard to find a local repair [place. any suggestions


Two things you can do for a 24-year old machine:

1. Replace both motor brushes (Black large plastic Caps on each side
of the Moto Housing). Without these, the motor wouldn't even run.
2. Replace the Worm Gear (the cause of the Rough Loud noises)

Download a copy of the Repair Part List from Kitchenaid.com for
your model KSM90.

Also don't forget to tighten all the screws inside the mixers and use
fresh Kitchenaid Grade Food Grease for all the gears.

Hobart A 200 Mixer


There are four possibilities to look at here. Assuming your mixer has a normal capacitor start motor (older a200's used a different style motor), possibilities are, in order of likelihood:

Motor start capacitor
Start switch (electronic or mechanical)
Burned wiring
Motor start winding

The start capacitor is located at the rear of the mixer. Remove the rear cover (4 screws) and pull the cover towards you. Disconnect one wire from the capacitor and test with any multimeter.

The start switch, if electronic, is able to be tested, but not very easily. Once you've eliminated the other possibilities, it's time to replace the (electronic) start switch. If the motor has a mechanical start switch, it's easy to test: Remove the two wires at the rear of the motor and test for continuity with the motor stationary. A multimeter should show near zero ohms for a good mechanical start switch.

Burned wiring should be easy to spot with some careful inspection around the motor, capacitor, and start switch.

Start winding: Look closely at the stator (stationary part of the motor). If some of the copper windings look significantly darker in color than the others, it's likely the start windings were overheated (the start windings are the thinner copper wires - if you look closely, approximately half of the wires are thinner than the other half). Look for a wiring diagram behind the power switch and determine which wires leading to the start switch and/or capacitor are for the start windings and test for continuity across the start winding. You should read a fairly small value such as 5 - 15 ohms. Values significantly outside this range could indicate a partially open or partially shorted start winding.

Have a A200 Mixer, when turned on, you have to spin it by hand then it runs fine. Whats wrong


The answer is clearly in the starting circuit which doesn't have too many parts, but depends on the type of starting circuit your mixer uses (electronic or mechanical start switch). I'm assuming your mixer isn't very old, as the old units used brushed motors which did not have starting circuits.

The parts of the starting circuit are the motor start winding, the start capacitor and the start switch (probably electronic in your case which is a small silver box with four wire terminals on it). The capacitor should be tested with a multimeter after verifying it's not holding a charge (check with multimeter set to DC Volts, mixer unplugged, should read zero volts).
Start winding should be tested with the meter to measure ohms. Locate the wires leading to the motor (hopefully only three wires) and you should get a reading for all three combinations of measurements (wire 1-to-wire 2, 2-to-3, 1-to-3) if meter indicates open on any of these, motor stator is bad(this is pretty rare and quite expensive).
Electronic start switches are not very simple to test, but if the capacitor and motor test out OK with the meter, and all the wiring is intact (look closely for loose wires, burned wires, poorly crimped terminals, etc.) then it must be the start switch.

The mixer will not start. Power gets to the unit and the blade does turn manually.


Hi - I assume you mean to say that the motor turns on, runs in all speeds but no power is being transferred to the planetary head and beaters?

If this was preceeded by some intermittent run conditions like occasionally skipping beaters and some louder than normal or different run noise then it's likely that the nylon Worm Gear has lost teeth and is no longer making contact with the motor gear. It is part of an assembly which is directly coupled to the motor. Disassembly is required to get at this part and some mechanical skill to replace it. If the mixer's a few years old and/or gets a lot of use, the gear grease should be replaced too. For the gears and other parts, including the grease - check out http://www.goodmans.net/get_dept_933.htm They seem to have just about every part needed and fair pricing. Appliance Parts Pros is another source of parts and diagrams. Warning - mixer disassembly is a medium complexity task and could ruin your day...

Good luck!

More info re: n50 hobart mixer


Judy. Hobart was sold to Illinois Tool Works (ITW) several years ago. The Kitchenaid product line was sold to Whirlpool Corp. several years ago too.

The new N-50 mixers have a motor that is designed by Hobart, but no longer built by Hobart. Last year Hobart began out-sourcing approx. 12-15% of their componnents to Asia. Their parts catalog does not show anything but metal gears. I suspect the new motors have been built in Asia. Wattage is not the output of the motor, but how much power it takes to run the motor and is no indication of how much power goes into your mixing bowl. The true measure of mixing power is horsepower. The N-50 motors are rated at 1/6 HP. Wattage claims by mixer manufacturers is a complete snowjob, and they all do it. Consumers have no protection as a result of this policy. It is a marketing ploy to make you believe that this indicates output power. Shame on all of them! Most componnents of the new N-50's are still manufactured in the USA.

I see that you've done some homework on Kitchenaid Mixers. I wish I had before I bought mine. Yes, they have a plastic transmission housing, and yes, they fail under strong loads demanded by bread dough and stiff cookie dough mixtures (my HD Professional 450 watts failed 5 months out of warranty, after only 30 uses making bread). Go to the www.consumeraffairs.com website and search for Kitchenaid mixer problems and reviews and brace yourself for a shock.

My mixer failed on Oct. 28th. and I had to fight tooth and nail with Kitchenaid to get them to re-imburse me for the cost of the parts that were destroyed by the housing failure. Here we are in 2009 and I'm still waiting for one more part. Kitchenaid parts take at least a month to arrive (in my experience).

I didn't do the research on mixers until mine failed. Since then I've purchased an older Hobart N-50 (with a motor BUILT by Hobart), and this is what I recommend you do, as it will save you much grief down the road. Mine was manufactured in 1990 and only needed. re-greasing to make it like new.

You can find them often on eBay but will have to buy without trying them. Try to find one that is newer rather than older, as a rebuild will get very expensive. I got mine from a Rest. Equip. Wholesaler and was able to try it out in all gears. The previous post (solution) was correct in saying that you should look for one that has a black knob on the shifter handle, this will be a newer one as opposed to an ancient one with an all metal shift lever and potentially worn out innards. If you find one, take it to Hobart, or a Hobart tech can come to you (check service rate) have the unit cleaned, inspected and re-greased. Sit back and take comfort in the fact that these mixers were built like a tank, and will probably outlast you.

Most of all. Good luck, and happy hunting. ricardok45
