Question about Hobart D300 Stand Mixer
Transmission uses #0 weight grease, best to get direct from Hobart (their grease is the correct weight and approved by U.S. FDA & USDA as safe for use in food equipment) but if you insist on not doing so, at least obtain an Extreme Pressure #0 grease and don't overpack the transmission, I believe it should have 35 oz. if memory serves right.
Uses a heavier grease for the planetary gear, use #2 weight. Don't need much, just a light coat on the planetary gear.
Bowl lift rails use medium weight oil, again use food grade oil supplied by Hobart.

you can call your local hobart branch for the part number,but you use lithium grease in the unit.in order to change the grease the transmission needs to be opened and so does the planetary. i service these mixers alot i work for hobart.if you need any more help/questions let me know.

DEFINITELY contact the manufacturer (Hobart) on that one. Sounds like you're having some sort of an internal problem with it (something might be cracked), and in this situation, the best way to go is to contact the manufacturer rather than try to repair it yourself. If you're still under warranty, and you try to open the machine up to fix it yourself, you could wind up VOIDING the warranty, and if you're out of warranty, most repair places won't touch a machine that you've messed with already--too much of a liability.
Just give Hobart a call, and they should be able to help you (if you're in warranty, sometimes even for free!). Their phone number (according to their website, www.hobartcorp.com ) is 1-888-4HOBART (1-888-446-2278)
Good luck! :)
