Question about Hobart D300 Stand Mixer
Why does the motor for d-300 mixer run in reverse?
If it is a three phase machine, switch any of the two hot leads to reverse the motor rotation. You can switch them either in the plug or the receptacle.

ON my D300 the problem might a run start capacitor in the base on the back side is a access plate and that is where you will find it ,,what happens is that your mixer starts and will bind on the load in bowl then it will stop the trans. and torq and will spin backwards and will run in that condition the capicitor stores a load of voltage to energize the motor and over come that inital torq ...by the way it is a simple fix about 15 bucks at the hobart parts place

To Whom it May Concer: At the school I work we have a Hobart D-300 Mixer. When we mix bread dough it pulls alot of current and trips the breaker. The max current draw on the name plate is 10.1 amps. I have seen the current go over 30 amps during the mixing process. Under no load the mixer pulls 7.8 amps. I dont have any information about this machine on paper and I can only go so far with troubleshooting.
My questions to you are: Is it normal for the mixer to draw 7.8 amps under no load? And is their a manual online I can look at so I can check the oil levels and make sure I do not have a low oil/needs greasing condition.
Thanks for your help and time,

Look on the I.D. plate. Voltage should be listed. "PH" is for phase. It will either be single (1), or three (3) phase. "AMP" is for ampacity or the amount of power it consumes. Hobart's manual does not list the motor as an entire replacement unit. It only lists parts as if you were to rebuild the motor. Sorry.
Hope this helps some.
