Question about Hobart A200 Stand Mixer

? Hobart A200 Mincer/Mixer wont work

I do some work on a number of farms where I live. One very kind farmer has given me what I believe is a old, old Hobart A200 Mincer/Mixer/Slicer and all the untensils to go with it. Looking at things that are simular on the internet he gave me something that is worth over £500.

The only problem is a mouse got inside it and ate some of the wiring. I have replaced what I can but I still cant get it to work. He did say that when he switched it on it did go bang.

So my question is, Can I get it to work again?

or has he just given me loads of heavy scrap metal.

The machine must weigh over 50kg, has a gear swith marked 1,2,3 left of the on/off switch. Has the mixing arm underneath with the mincing and slicing attachment take off at the front. the top of it is domed like the head of one of the aliens in the alien movies. I scracthed the paint of the plate at the rear and it does clearly say A200. It is a floor standing unit that stand up to about waist height.

It would be really great to see the old girl working again because I think she quite old. It would aso really help me out because at the moment I mince everything by hand and it is really hard work. Plus with all the blades I will be able to slice, chip, mince and mix anything I choose.

Please, pleasecan some one help me out. I should be able to provide pics if needed.

Wishing you all the best.

Nik

What kind of bang was it ? an electrical or mechanical. The A-200 has a stator and rotor assy with a start capacitor and relay behind the back cover at the head of the unit. You can access the retaining nut for the rotor (motor) shaft by removing the small 2 inch cover and getting a wrench on the nut and spinning it by hand. The handle you mentioned with the three numbered selections are your speed settings and everything is driven through a planetary drive. Hobart A-200 have been around longer than I have (im 48) and are work horses and in my opinion, are the top of the line for mixers. Put it this way, I would take a 25 year old A-200 over a brand new Varimixer or other brand name. You can access parts manuals and break downs on Hobarts web site with model # and M/L # any other question e-mail me capt_rick1912@yahoo.com if you cant find what you are looking for I will e-mail you a wiring diagram (found behind the small gear selection cover on side) Good Luck......Rick

I have a hobart A200 with no safty gard is it possible bay just the gard and attache it to the mixer and where can i buy it?thank you


It has to be installed as a kit by a Hobart Technician. I do not believe they will sell the kit to the general public. After it is installed you can buy parts as needed.

I have oil coming from the front of a hobart a200 mixer,What to look for? and what kind of oil?


If you have oil leaking from the attachment hub, the transmission grease has liquified. The transmission will need to be opened so the old lubricant can be removed, by scooping it out. There aren't any seals in the attachment hub, just two torrington needle bearings. The helical gears thrust the pinion gear onto a thrust bearing in the hub to create a seal. The hub has a return hole in it's casting for excess lube to return internally. It's possible the return hole is restricted. On the other hand, if the machine has been filled with oil, it will probably leak like a siv.
The new lube should be 35 OZ of mobil XPH 222,
Hobart part number is 103881-47 for 32OZ.

Hobart A200 Mixer not working


Sundance,
Please visit the corp website www.hobartcorp.com and click on the "Sign In" link in the upper right hand corner. You'll need to complete a brief registration form, but then you'll land in the Hobart Resource Center.

Hobart no longer manufactures the A200 mixer - but you can review and download a user manual and a parts catalog from the Resource Center on your mixer. That should help you understand the parts need.

We do sell replacement parts direct to end users, just visit our service website at www.hobartservice.com - and click on the "Locate on Office" link. You'll be able to contact your local Service branch to purchase a replacement part OR to have them take a look at the unit and provide a quote on fixing it.

If you have additional questions on Hobart products - please contact me at sherri.wilmoth@hobartcorp.com .

Thanks!
SHerri

? Hobart A200 Mincer/Mixer wont work


does the motor have brushes? If so the mixer will have two removable covers on the back motor plate. If so take some light sandpaper to the part called the comutator that these carbon brushes ride on and make them shinny. If you have a newer style motor that doesnt have brushes. pull the motor cover and make sure the start switch is cleaned by sanding the contacts. If you check your wiring with a ohm/volt meter and it all checks good, well, the first question I should ask is does it hum? if not, the problems in the wiring or power switch. if it humes the problems in the comutator, start switch, capacitor or your motor is shot. unlikely for a mouse infestation. most likely wiring or switch problem.

Old hobart s-30 mixer oil


man you got an oldie but goodie mixer!im a hobart service tech for 8 years and have only seen about two dozen,unfortuantly parts for these units are exhuasted.as for the sight glass they do become cloudy over time and you cant determine the oil level.use a heavy gear case oil.the only way of telling is to drain the oil or if the unit is loud you should probably cange the oil.
