Question about Hobart A200 Stand Mixer
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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
