Question about Hobart P660 Stand Mixer
L800 #1125369 Spec-6265 Hp 1 1/2 ph 3
Machine has to be 20 years old. Bought rebuild from Hobart about 10 years ago. Does have timer. I use it for making 40 lb (25lb flour) batches of pizza dough.
Transmittion seems to be working fine.. kept oil changed. No oil or greese leaks.
Problem: Under pressure we are getting a clanking sound from the planetarium.
Is this a problem that I should attempt to fix. I am less than a back yard mechanic but have work around machines a lot and got the basics.
What supplies do I need?
Any special tools needed?
I would like to do this about 7:30 EST tonight. Is it possible to get help if I have a question?
Hi, yes these planetary gears can go faulty, and the first signs is indeed an increased noise form it. As long as you can get parts, and it seems they are readily available, these units were built to last, and service, I do not think you would have any trouble in repairing it. First though, perhaps it need a repack, with grease or whatever was used before? When the "Backlash" gets too much, that's when it needs to be replaced, and they do wear. The links above will all help you,If you have any problem simply contact the maker, link provided, and they have a wonderful, parts and service, and will only be too happy to help.

I say definitely pull it down and have a look. You will most likely find a bad bearing or a chipped or broken gear. You should be able to handle it easily.
Do yourself one favor - have someone video you taking it apart or do like me when on a new project - take many pictures and put every little screw and part in the same grouping in a see through baggie. This really helps if you have to wait awhile for parts or you get real busy with lots on your mind.

Hello,all you need to do is just to adjust the bowl height and the cranking noise will stop and you will mixer as it was working initially.
To adjust the bowl height you need to use the handle. on the right side. If you rotate handle counter clockwise the bowl will go up. If you go clockwise with handle the bowel will go down.
thanks for using fixya,

Hello. Your mixer may just need greasing so be prepared with some heavy duty food grade grease available at most any hardware store or auto parts store. Also, here is a great link to all of the hobart manuals, and hobart support http://www.hobartservice.com/Manuals/ Joe
