If this is a Ryobi 80r the large part of the spool doesn't come off!!! simply remove the bump knob and the inner spool leaving the shaft and outer part, you will find most aftermarket heads either come with or require an adapter for this type of trimmer, the cone shaped upper part of their new head will go up inside your outer spool

When turned on gear 1 mixer lately slipped to gear 2 immediately. I took back cover off and cleaned everything out by lifting the electrical element (?) and after mounting everything back on the mixer does...

You need to adjust the mixer speeds. Obtain a copy of the KSM5 Repair Part List from Remove the screw holding the End Cover and locate the three screws from the Control Plate. All three (2 top left and right, and 1 bottom) must all be adjusted. 1. Loosen the lock nuts enough & Turn the 2 top screws clockwise until they cannot be turned
anymore. Leave the bottom screw alone for now.
2. Use a dab of white paint or paper whiteout to mark the positions of the Phillips screws.
3. Plug in your mixer and Set the speed selector to "Stir".
4. Turn each top screw One full turn couterclockwise (alternating between Left and Right)
Keep making one full turn at the time (for both left and right) until the motor starts running.
5. Put your hand near the Agitator shaft and allow it to brush your finger slightly. Use your
watch or clock and start counting the number of times the shaft touches your finger in
60 seconds. The correct count should be 60 RPM (Rounds Per Minute). If it is less
or more than 60, give each screw 1/4 turn counterclockwise or clockwise and start counting
again. Now tighten both lock nuts.
6. Set the speed selector to "6" and turn the bottom screw either clockwise or counterclockwise
to achieve a speed of 180 RPM.

For your reference, the planetary RPM's for the 5-qt. tilt-head Artisan Stand Mixer are as follows:
Stir speed - 60
Speed 2 - 95
Speed 4 - 135
Speed 6 - 180
Speed 8 - 225
Speed 10 - 2

My hobart n50 runs on the same speed in 1 and 2 and will not engage in 3 .. also sounds louder than do you lube?

Hello Ldl,

I understand that you are having a problem with you 5 quart commercial mixer by hobart. The 1 and 2 are the same speed and you are not getting 3. You also would like to know what oil to use in your machine and how to fill the unit.

To answer you speed question first. The speed is adjusted by the bolt located in the middle of the planetary (the part that turns underneath of the head the attachments hook to). If this bolt is tightened all the way up or to lose it will not allow you to achieve all of the speeds. You will have to adjust this screw many times and turn the machine on to check you speeds. Eventually you will achieve all three speeds.

Before I answer how you lube the machine you need to know what kind of lube to use. The gear box uses a 90 weight gear oil and the planetary uses 140 weight gear oil (grease).

Lubing the gear box with top cover:
1. Remove the top of the gear box (the cover)
2. There is a Round plate with three bolts (do not remove) in this plate there is a disc (looks like a cap seal) use a small screw driver to pry this disc out carefully you will have to put it back once you are done lubing the unit.
Lubing with out a top cover:
1. Remove the switch and gear selector (remember position of gear selector)
2. Fill thru whole in side behind plate removed

Lubing planitary:
1. Remove drip ring
2. Remove the planetary (unscrew bolt in middle)
3. Remove key located in the side of shaft
4. Lube and put back together

Thank you for choosing

ETS sensor light stays lit on dash as "ETS OFF" 1996 Grandam SE 3.1 V6. bought "as is" would like to know what ETS is and where the sensor is located and how to replace sensor

hi this is the Enhanced Traction System ( ETS )it is an all-speed engine based traction control system used by General Motors Corporation in many of their models. In some models, the driver has the option to disable this system by pushing a button marked "ETS". The system uses sensors to monitor wheelspin and reduces engine speed, upshifts or retards ignition timing to improve traction, have a look and see if there is a button , all you have to do then is press it and it will go off....hope this helps

Hi,i have a yanmar 2qm20h and have to change the zincs but i dont know there location.please help.also is there any chance of downloading a servioe manual.cheers from n.z.

Hi, the zincs are a screw in sort, located at either end of the cylinder head behind a "blanking nut", ie yo have to undo the nut, then undo the zinc (if there is any left!!), re service manual, no free downloads that i know of, also your model is bad for getting water in the head from the exhaust system, so ALWAYS turn the water off when you leave the boat, cheers

Putting Me Back Together???

Unfortunately, all the product manuals I have found do not give instructions for replacing the covers, but give care instructions to spot-clean with a mild soap.

Were there any other parts besides the cover and the 10 screws? Maybe a molded plastic piece that the screws would go into before going into the cover and metal tubes?

My only suggestion would be to search the hem of the cover to find the holes the screws had come from, put the screws through those holes and use them to line the cover up with the holes in the back of the poles.

If you still can't get it back together, it might be helpful to take a trip to a local baby product store (such as Babies R Us) and take a look at the display models. It might help you make heads or tails of that cover. Good luck!

I have a similar problem. I took the shredder head and gear box apart and found two stripped gears. True, the gears are plastic unfortunately (which is why they stripped.)

The gears are simple to get at and to replace. Does anyone know where I can purchase a set of gears for this unit (there are 3)?

If so, could you, please, email me w/ that information? (
I'd really appreciate it.

Thank you in advance.
