Hobart n -50 where do i put grease in, machine makes a grinding noise


If your N-50 is making a grinding noise there is a strong (almost certain) possibility that the cause is more than just needing more grease.

The sources of the noise are from the transmission case (front portion of the motor housing) and/or the planetary (where the blade attaches).

A search online should turn up the N-50 Service Manual.



With luck, it may be that the two adjustments specified in the Service Manual will do the trick

Three things come to mind regarding the noise:

1) If simply greasing the planetary does not do the trick, then

2) There are two adjustments to the transmission detailed in the Service Manual. And if that is not the cure

3) The transmission housing will need to be removed to find the source of the grinding. This is where the grease is truly encountered.

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.

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

Beaters don't reach the bottom of the bowl


There is an adjuster on the model I own - the KSM50... It is a tiny little silver screw at the base of the motor between the screws that mount the bowl mover to the stand. Screwing to the left makes the bowl lower and turning to the right makes the bowl higher. I just adjusted mine. Note - just a slight turn can make a difference, but my screw was SO TIGHT- I had to ask my husband to do it. Plus, it is located in a difficult area for some screwdrivers to fit into. He got mine to budge and now my clearance of beater to bowl ratio is perfect.

:) Hope it works for ya,

Hobart N50 Tripped


The reset button is to protect over amping the motor. The N-50 is not a very strong unit, (commercially), but you won't break a gear. If you overload the unit, you'll either trip the overload (reset button), or you will break the taper pin that attaches the planetary to the center shaft.

If you're looking for a small commercial unit, and you're in the US, look into the 10 qt Precision Mixer.
