Some of the N50's were packed with a white grease. It tends to seperate. So the oil portion finds it's way out. It sounds like it is getting into the motor case, and is running down the inside of the column. Hobart now uses a brown clay based grease --- Darina 2.

If the amounts are small, and the mixer is not excessively noisy, I wouldn't be concerned. If you wanted to fix it, the transmission would need to be removed, cleaned, and repacked. For a Hobart tech, 3 hours labor, $45 grease, plus parts.

I want to know if the mortar mixer D 300 Hobart make a changefor the gear because my speed number one doesn't work


Of course there are spares for Hobart mixers. They have been supplying spares for these machines for many, many years. We have an A20 (which is slightly smaller) and this, although it is about 40 years old, it is still supported.

I was mixing a cheesecake with my stand mixer when I began to notice that the color of the cheesecake batter had changed. It looks like a metallic color. What happened


Perhaps oil is leaking from the gear head?? Check the shaft and see if there is oil or grease leaking from where that shaft enters the machine.

About how many time you must change the oil.


For most applications once every two to three years should be fine.

My Hobart D300 mixer appears to be leaking oil/grease


Hi,I'm a hobart tech and repair these mixer's often.If you see oil in the drip cup then the center shaft seal in the transmission is worn.If there is oil near the transformer then the motor shaft seal is also bad.Hobart doesnt release their service manuals to the public but if you go to their site www.hobartcorp.com you can register for free and get a parts manual thats helpful.If you need help with the repair let me know,i can step you through it.

Need to buy a switch for the c-100 hobart mixer?


Hi. Hobart no longer makes or sells parts for the C-100 model. It's considered obsolete.

Your best bet is to locate a used restaurant equipment supply place and ask around. Sometimes these places keep old mixers for parts. Another option is to do a search on eBay, as there are several sellers that deal in obsolete parts. Failing that, a local electrician may be able to fabricate a new one or adapt some some other type of switch.

With a unit as old as this, it's important to maintain a good re-greasing schedule (once every five years), and your mixer will keep on delivering the goods for years to come.

If you found this solution usefull, please rate it as fixya. Good Luck! ricardok45

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.

Old hobart s-30 mixer oil


man you got an oldie but goodie mixer!im a hobart service tech for 8 years and have only seen about two dozen,unfortuantly parts for these units are exhuasted.as for the sight glass they do become cloudy over time and you cant determine the oil level.use a heavy gear case oil.the only way of telling is to drain the oil or if the unit is loud you should probably cange the oil.
