Hobart Mixer wont start

Hello bigg T . i just bought a hobart 60 qt mixer 3 phase . the mixer has a cage guard on it. my father is pretty mechanical so he has been trying t fix it. we hooked up the power to it and closed guard but it would not work , when you press the stop button you can see and hear the brake . but i will not start. so we took the upper cover off and my father started it by pushing in the contact switch . it works like that o.k.. so we are trying to figure out if the problem is with the sensor or the start switch.. also we dont really need the saftey guard so if there is a way of bypassing that, would be cool. any help would be greatly appreciated.thanks BIGG T

I have a Hobart 60 qt mixer that has oil coming out the top around the shaft cover. What would cause this?

Do you really mean a 60 qt. mixer? That is industrial size and would be about 4' tall. Maybe a 6 qt. mixer? In either case, oil coming out around the shaft cover indicates that someone either over-lubricated the mixer or used the wrong viscosity lubrication. Has it been serviced recently? You might need to take it back to wherever it was serviced.

Please can you advice why my 1st gear is no longer working but #2 and #3 is working. can you suggest what is wrong

The most likely cause is a faulty gear/gears or a faulty shift mechanism.

If you do not have experience fixing large mixers, I suggest calling in a qualified service technician.

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.

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

I have a Hobart 80 qt. stand pizza dough mixer that has lost forward speed, and only works in reverse. Is this electrical controls or a gear problem?

if the mixer is a 3-phase unit, that mixer has no reverse speeds, all gears should turncounter-clockwise when mixer is on ,if a 3-phase unit try switching any 2 of the incomingline to to change direction
