Question about Hobart A200 Stand Mixer

1 Answer

Motor runs but beaters won't turn and gears will not engage or change speed

I bought a used Hobart H200 qand it was working fine when suddenly I turned it on and there was the motor running and no beater action. I tried changing gears and no dice! It's as if the transmission is shot or something snapped or came loose inside the trans case.

When I opened the case, I found a load of greas that I am afraid to remove and can't see anything. I am concerned about cost to repair, If anyone has a cheap solution and a way to buy new trans grease and how much is needed, I would appreciate your input

    Thought I would need a tech!



    Thanks for confirming that it is not a DIY job.



    Any idea how $$ this can be?



    We have an older smaller mixer which sounds like an old tank, but it works. If the cost is over $100, we may have to wait on the repair.



    Thanks again.

Most likely there is a broken shaft, seized bearing, or a stripped gear.

The service tech will unassemble everything and replace the necessary warn or broken parts. He will re-assemble everything, check for proper gear lash and bushing clearances, and re-pack new grease.

    I would not have any idea of the cost, unless I know the exact parts that were defective and then did the research to find the prices. What you can count on is that the average repair can take about 1 to 2 hours for most all of these appliances. If you know the average hour rate for your area you will have an idea of the labour cost.



    Most of the time, the parts are not expensive in relation to the labour.

The motor works fine and you can hear it engage as you change it from speed to speed but the the beaters do not turn


This sound like the worm gear has failed: http://kitchenaidmixerspares.co.uk/Home/tabid/36/p/Mixer-Part---Worm-Gear-and-Bracket-240309-2/ProductID/103/CategoryID/17/Default.aspx
You will need to take the mixer apart to confirm this.

How to disassemble Black & Decker MX50 PowerPro Mixer


You can remove the handle-back by gently prying the rear clips down and away. But the problem is the power boost button; it has a fork that goes down the left side and snaps over a micro-switch. You need to get that off since there is not room for all 3 buttons (eject, variable speed, and boost) to slide through the handle. A small probe inserted from the top and pushing on the left side to the rear might do it. Or just pry the boost switch upwards; that's how I got mine apart. My problem was the boost microswitch was bad and provided a poor connection. As a result, the beater only ran intermittently on regular switch positions. I solved it by bypassing the boost micro switch. The beater now only runs on the regular speeds but that's fine by me.

Good luck!

When you say lag and catch up. This may not be a issue. I have seen this with dough and a spiral hooks on all sizes of Hobarts the hook and dough get in a position to push the hook forward and the drive gears catch back up the hook. in fist gear on the 20 quart this is common for sure. but its normal. if you have a real slip from a sheared key it will not take long to where you can hold the planetary shaft with your hand and stop it. another slip that might be possible is if your mixer has the first generation worm shaft gear Assembly. when it is worn out it will slip you. this is the shaft that drives directly off the motor. you can tell if it's first Gen by it has a large spring on it. the tow later versions are all keyed to the shaft no chance to slip unless a key shears.

Hobart 140 Qt Mixer 4 speed. needs the oil changed? what kind of oil to use?


You can use a heavy weight gear oil or call the local hobart branch for it.To remove oil----Look under the mixer where the beater shaft is in the back and you will see a three quarter inch nut,remove this nut and drain the oil then put nut back in.To fill the unit remove the top cover screws and remove the top,you will see a long hexagon nut in length,remove this and grab a funnel then add the oil---be patient it takes time to fill as the oil is heavy.
