Question about Hobart A200 Stand Mixer

1 Answer

I have an A200 (240v single phase) which starts up, but after about 20 seconds the capacitor gets very hot and starts smoking. It looks like it has/had a cetrifugal switch that might be broken or might have been tampered with. Could this be the problem? Is there supposed to be electrical connections to this centrifugal switch? will the motor function without it? What does it do?

The centrifugal switch is/was the speed regulator - yes, the power for the engine was supposed to go thru it; yes, the motor can work without it but it will always run at full speed, and over it when unloaded, causing a serious overstress and and much greater wear.
No, this is not the cause for you overheating capacitor : the capacitor is there to provide power at the correct phase shift to an extra coil inside the engine - that coil starts the engine and determines the direction of the rotation. The capacitor overheats because that coil is shorted. Unfortunately this is unfixable - that engine is dead.

I have Hobart D300 mixer which operates at 220V, 3phase supply and whereas the facility has 208V, single phase supply. Is there any recommended phase converters available for this product. Thanks


Hi Bill
I may be wrong here......
But I've been around Electricity for a long time.
Have Never seen a device that does phase conversion.
A Building site or home will either have Three Phase or Single Phase Power Available
BUT...A portable (Hired) generator could be "three phase" and you could use any one of those phases individually or all three phases.

I have 3 Phase supply to my house!
But I use 230 volt Single Phase for appliances.
My Bore Pump uses a 3 Phase Motor,
(so with a voltmeter it would read about 440 vAC to the pump motor).
Some Further Info:
A GENERATOR is basically a motor used the opposite way. Rotate a motor and it Generates.
The Phases refer to the THREE Windings in the supplying generator in your suburb.
A Large Magnet passes each winding in sequence giving you the three ripples in the supply.
Our houses can choose to have 1 Phase or Three Phases from the street when you set up your electric supply.
So... to confirm, look at the wires on the supply poles to the premises. Usually three in our area (Oz)
Most people are not aware that a car Alternator is actually three phase. The Rotor is the magnet that rotates.
The only difference with an Alternator is that each "Phase" is connected to 2 Diodes (6 total) to convert the three phase to DC to charge the vehicle.
The Regulator controls the voltage to the Rotor, thereby controlling the output.
So.... An Alternator could in theory supply 3 Phase in a mobile generator. Custom Made. Constant speed would determine the frequency of 50Hz or 60Hz.
Not sure what country you are in

Hope this Helps or gives you food for thought!

Meat grinder does not work but it makes a humming sound


First check- is unit single phase? Check for bad capacitor(s).
- is unit three phase? Check for missing leg(s) or
bad wiring conections.
Next check motor windings and for shorts also if it is mechinal binding up.
If motor is good , check for problems in the drive train.

Why My Hobart A200 20 QT Mixer ML #104858 Motor Is Smoking?


I think... without knowing that motor... that the capacitor is a start capacitor, and that the start switch may be trying to "start" the motor full-time instead of switching it out of circuit after it figures that the motor has spun up. I may be wrong - that design may be a capacitor-run motor (similar to a three-phase motor) - but I'm betting it's a start-only capacitor.

If you know someone with a capacitance meter, you could check the capacitor - for both capacitance (to be sure it matches the label) and leakage. Easy way to write that one off. Alternatively, you could rig it such that after the motor's wound up you could manually disconnect the capacitor and see what happens - either the motor stops or else the smoking issue stops.

Whatever you do, don't let it smoke very long. The varnish on the windings is only so thick.

What is hobart h600, single phase or 3 phase?


Not sure if you are asking if an H600 is automatically a single phase or a 3 phase and the answer is NO. Depending on the motor it will be 1 phase or 3 phase application. It will have 4 wires versus 3 wires -- hope that makes sense 3 of the wires are "HOT" on a 3 phase and only 2 are "HOT" on a single phase Motor.

I needed to know the PH for a h600 11344142 Hobart mixer... And is it a single Or 3 face??


Hello Jbabajanov,

I understand that you want to know about the HP (Horse Power) of a H600, 60 quart mixer and weither it is a single or three phase.

All H600 Hobart mixers are equiped with a 2 horse power motor.

As to wether it is single or three phase you will need to look at the service tag of the machine. If is listed on it weather it is single or three phase.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

Taking my P660 out out a building with 3 phase power and into one with only single phase. Converter says motor will run on 2/3 power. Good or bad idea????


Good!

MOTOR:

ventilated within mixer enclosure. Single-phase is

capacitor-start, induction-run type.


Three-phase is

polyphase squirrel cage, induction-run type.


Single Phase 208V 20.0 Amps

240V 17.0 Amps


Three Phase 208-240V 8.6 Amps

I need a wiring diagram for the Hobart H600 which has a multi tap motor on and i would like to change the voltage on the motor to 200volt single phase 120/208 or even 120208 3phase. The wiring diagram is...


You cannot wire a three phase motor for single phase and you cannot wire a single phase motor for three phase. If you have a three phase dual voltage motor your options are 220 or 440 volts. If you have a single phase dual voltage motor your options are 120 or 240 volts. A 208 volt Hobart motor will only function correctly on 208 volts and is not dual voltage.

My Hobart mixer is hard to start. I have to keep


take off the side cover where gear shifter is, you probably have the original arrow hart contactor in there ,that part is obsolete but you can get a kit from hobart to upgrade the control circuit

A-200 mixer brush carrier orientation.


Hi. I can't help you with your first question...But I can help with your brushes problem. Unplug the mixer With the two inspection plates removed at the commutator end loosen the two screws of the brush holder which are above and below the motor bearing cover, they're the only larger screws now visible. Note the markings on the brush holder on the bottom right side where you removed the inspection plate. Rotate the brush holder to the other mark. Set the brush holder screws. Plug in the power. and start the motor. It should now be turning in the proper direction, if not, make small adjustments by loosening the set screws, and moving the brushes until it starts to your satisfaction. Be sure that the set screws are tightened when you're done. If you need further assistance, post a clarification.

I have the same spec. mixer as you do.

If this solution has assisted you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45

I have just had the exact sme problem.
It is caused by a 1 watt resistor on the board.
You will also find that very possibly the large capacitor, a 0.1uF, has aso burnt out. This capacitor would have cracked open down the side and that is where the smoke came from.
parts can be replaced by a repair man and possibly a better solution is to have the board replaced, They are availiable still.
