Question about Hobart A200 Stand Mixer
Hiya Mr Bigg T,
I have just been given what I think is an old Hobart A200. It has a mixer arm and has the ability to mince and slice too.
The only prob is that a mouse has got inside it and ate some of the wiring. I have tried to replace what I can but its still not working.
Please could you Oh Great one offer some help or tips. I would really love to see this old maichine working again because im sure it is worth a few pennies. Im see this as a project to get an old bit of mechanical history working again. It would also really help me out because at the moment I have to mince 20kg of chicken everyweek on a hand mincer.
So any help will be truely treasured and appreciated.
All the best,
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.
