Question about Hobart A200 Stand Mixer
I have an older Hobart 20 QT A200 that I would like to lube. Where do I add the lube and how much, and what type can I use? Do I need to completely wipe all the older grease off? I bought it 8 years ago and didn't use it more than a few times to check it out, but it did leak some yellow lube back then.
It hasn't been used in 8 years and did have some rust develop while it sat in storage, I am sanding it down and repainting it. The bowl lift was rusted in place along the bowl lift slideways, I took the back piece off each slideway and there was a thin material between them that was all broken apart, is that really necessary or can I put it back together without that? Is there something I can substitute for that material, it seemed to be an asbestos type washer about 1/32 thick?
Any other places I should lube or oil it, or places I should check for rusted parts after letting it sit this long? The motor starts and purrs like a kitten, all speeds work fine. The bowl lift now works fine after freeing the slideways, I did have to spray a penetrating lube along the rod that attaches to the bowl lift handle inside the " neck ".
Any help or suggestions you can offer would be greatly appreciated, I just don't have the money to pay to have this fixed up for me, so I have to try and do what I can on it myself.
I have the wrong greace in my A200 standmixer i need to know what kind and how much to put in gear cace. thank you

The Hobart tech told me to use a synthetic grease, NGLI grade 2, from the auto parts store for the gear case. He recommended black or green instead of red (red breaks down faster than the other colors). You need to use a food grade grease, NGLI 2 for the planetary. I bought the food grease - Mobilgrease FM221 off of Ebay.
There is an amazing video on Youtube on tearing down the gear housing on an A200. Watch it before taking it apart. Also, take lots of photos as it comes apart. Getting it back together isn't easy.

Hey steve,im a service tech for hobart and work on these units alot.You would need to take the transmission cover off in order to replace the grease,you would also have to drop the planetry to grease as well.If there are no issues with the mixer i would leave it be,but if you need some questions answered let me know.
