Question about Hobart A200 Stand Mixer

? Hobart A200 Mincer/Mixer wont work

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,

Nik

    Thankyou for spending the time to respond.



    Unfortunatly the machine doesnt hummmmm at all. The dam thing does nothing. When I press the green switch in it doesnt engage, click or anything. I have changed the plug and fuse, yet nothing.



    I will try your tips and let you know how I fare.



    Wishing you all the best,



    Nik

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.

I hAVE A HOBART 200T FIRST AND THIRD GEAR WORK FINE BUT SECOND GEAR DOES NOT SEEM TO GRAB WITH ANY TORQUE. WHAT MIGHT BE THE PROBLEM?


I would say without looking at it a key is sheared or gear teeth are worn on the gear.usually its a sheared key,however if the mixer is older they use a dive key assembly which you would have to replace the shaft.I'm a hobart tech and repair these mixers often,any ? let me know.What is the ml # on the data plate?

Hobart mixer A200 Rotation


Assuming the unit is 120v, single phase, my money is on a bad electronic start switch (not to be confused with the on/off switch) It's not visible without some disassembly. Usually, it is located at the rear of the motor cavity. Take note of all the info on your model data plate then go here to obtain a parts breakdown on your particular mixer. http://www.hobartservice.com/Parts/

I'd suggest replacing the capacitor as well.

Small screw and nut?


By turning the screw cw or ccw it adjusts the clearance on the worm shaft assembely,in other words if the mixer is noisy by adjusting this screw you can quiet it down.

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


Hi I work on these all the time, sounds like a tooth from the one of the gears has sheerd off so making the gear rings rotate when they should sit solid in its casing..... you need to open her up or get a tech to look at it £150 is an approx fix

? Hobart A200 Mincer/Mixer wont work


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
