Question about Hobart N50 Stand Mixer
I just acquired an older model Hobart N50 mixer (1/8 HP with fuse on back). It is very niosy in all gears. Does this signal gear repalcement or is it possible lubrication would solve the noise. How can I diagnose the problem?
First, there is a double set screw (one on top of the other - if they are both there) towards the back of the planetary.
Remove the first screw, it should have a normal tip, not pointy. Run the mixer in 1st and adjust the screw, first out then in. Then repeat in 3rd. You should clearly hear a difference.
If not, you probably need to repack the grease in the transmission. The proper grease is called "Darina II". It's expensive ~ $35 per mixer.
