Question about Hobart P660 Stand Mixer

4 Answers

L800 hobart - planetarium starting to clink under load

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.

Need directions

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?

    Thanks for the info. I pulled the book and went through it last night. The information is good but is not thorough enough for me. It leaves to many questions. I did not see any detailed “how toos”.

    Grease – remove plantary:

    I have a few questions, they do not talk about using grease anywhere. They only talk about keeping the oil (same as in the transmission) up. What would I grease? Do I pull the planetary off and put heavy grease on the gears. Would that clog up the oil pump?

    If I pull the planetary off would you suggest I have extra ball bearings and seals available?

    It also talks about giving the planetary support when pulling it off…. Will it fall?

    Oiling:

    I see there appears to be a place to remove a plug (appears you use an alan wrench) and a removable plug on the bottom of the mixer that can be removed. I suspect this how you drain the planetary and add oil. Should that be the 1st try?

    They talk about using a funnel with an elbow to add oil… how about a funnel with a little plastic hose?

    It also talks about giving the planetary support when pulling it off…. Will it fall?

    Your info is much appreciated

    Thanks for the info. I down loaded the Hobart Manual.. The information is good but leaves many questions. I did not see any detailed ?how too? on Hobart?s Web site

    Greasing the planetary:
    You mentioned that I need to pull the planetary and grease the gears.
    I have a few questions, The Hobart manual does not talk about using grease anywhere. They only talk about keeping the oil (same as in the transmission) up. What would I grease? Do I pull the planetary off and put heavy grease on the gears. Would that clog up the oil pump?
    If I pull the planetary off would as you suggest should I have extra ball bearings and seals available? Would it be advisable to just plan on replacing the main planetary gear?

    It also talks about giving the planetary support when pulling it off?. Will it fall? Hand held support?

    Have you worked on this specific model?

    Your info is much appreciated

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.

Hi,
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,

take care.

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

I needed to know the PH for a h600 11344142 Hobart mixer... And is it a single Or 3 face??


Hello Jbabajanov,

I understand that you want to know about the HP (Horse Power) of a H600, 60 quart mixer and weither it is a single or three phase.

All H600 Hobart mixers are equiped with a 2 horse power motor.

As to wether it is single or three phase you will need to look at the service tag of the machine. If is listed on it weather it is single or three phase.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

Hobart L800 will not stay on unless you hold start buuton


If it has a bowl guard on it then it could be the bowl height switch or the side switch on the contactor. If it does not have a bowl guard then it is more than likely the contactor side switch.Check www.hobartservice.com for your local Hobart office.

Need to know what type motor is in a hobart D 300 mixer


Look on the I.D. plate. Voltage should be listed. "PH" is for phase. It will either be single (1), or three (3) phase. "AMP" is for ampacity or the amount of power it consumes. Hobart's manual does not list the motor as an entire replacement unit. It only lists parts as if you were to rebuild the motor. Sorry.

Hope this helps some.

Not sure this will help, but here are some things you might want to consider- 1st, get a new appliance technician.

2nd, if the gearbox is not making noise, then you may want to ask a COMPETENT technician to look at your mixer and check that the mixer is wired correctly for the power that you have coming into it. i.e., if you bought the mixer from a kitchen that was using high voltage (say 240v) and you have it wired into a lower voltage, then the shaft will turn, but it will seem very underpowered.

These units have the ability to run off of more than one voltage (120V, 208, 240) and multiple phases. The internal wiring needs to be wired in accordance w/ your supply voltage and phase (there is a schematic on the trans case that you will see when you remove the mixer hood that will show you the correct configuration for your application).
You should find the full wiring schematic on the underneath of the hood when you remove it.

I would also have said competent tech check the input voltage (this can be done at the main input relay) and while he's there, check the output voltage of the same relay to insure that you don't have a partial short. On the side of the relay is a 110v thermal fuse that should be tested too.

If the contactor was shorted, your shaft wouldn't turn and you would see a small green reset on the face of the contactor that would be protruding farther than normal.

Also, on the schematic, you can find the location of the fuses and it would be in your best interest to check those as well.

Hope that helps!

Age of a-200


There is a two letter code that translates to the month and year. You would need to call Hobart to translate. 1-937-332-3000

There are hints to the age, first two digit of the S/N is the factory. "11" are the older ones, spec vs ml on plate, type of power switch, bowl gaurd....

Hobart L800 Mixer Age & Bowl Question


The manufacter date is actually a two letter code on the data plate. But being the s/n is an "11", factory #11, it's old.

The key number for getting the right parts on a Hobart is the "ML" or "Spec" number. It is most always a five diget number.

As far as your actual problem -- I'm confused.
