Question about Hobart A200 Stand Mixer

1 Answer

Hobart A-200 F, Serial Number: 1688947, Spec 16865 The first gear can be easily stopped by hand which to me indicates the perhaps a shear pin is broken. I have also heard that the diving key may be the culprit. I will be opening it up and having a look but would appreciate any insight based on the serial number and spec for my particular machine.

There is a lever that is riveted to the shaft that controls the movement of the diving key. It may be broken. Email me and let me know what you found. robert.vest@hobartservice.com

I have a 60 qt. Hobart Mixer and it works but I can literally grab the dough hook and stop it with my hands, when in first gear. Does anyone know what the problem could be?


If I remember from the last time I saw inside one they are belt driven. It sounds like yours is slack. There are screws on the top to remove the cover plate. I also vaguely remember a Bakelite laminate cog that has a shear pin. It has been a long time though that I saw the inside but have used them often. I am a chef, qualified in 1971 :-)

Hobart A200 mixer. 1st gear has no torque, I can stop it by hand. I found the key sheared on the low speed gear(flat gear, beveled gear part wasn't sheared). I replaced the key, & it sheared it again...


Ed, if you continue to do it yourself, the end result will be tossing good money out. Have a professional check the system and save the unit from permanent damage. Chipping parts of a gear off means a serious resistance force or action has occurred. One force is slowing down as the other is speeding up. Gear alignment can be moved off center, or a sudden application (sudden stop or start) can damage the least resistant parts. For example, when a hook turns within the mixing chamber and the resistance of the content is too great on the turning shaft and gears, which ever part is weakest will break. Complicated I guess.

I hAVE A HOBART 200T FIRST AND THIRD GEAR WORK FINE BUT SECOND GEAR DOES NOT SEEM TO GRAB WITH ANY TORQUE. WHAT MIGHT BE THE PROBLEM?


I would say without looking at it a key is sheared or gear teeth are worn on the gear.usually its a sheared key,however if the mixer is older they use a dive key assembly which you would have to replace the shaft.I'm a hobart tech and repair these mixers often,any ? let me know.What is the ml # on the data plate?

My 20 qt. mixer has no power in speed #1.


Hi All. Since the original poster has not responded to my request for ML and spec. #'s, I'll offer a solution based on a spec.# 3943 for anyone with the same problem. This is an older model A200 with a solid aluminum gearshift lever.

Stop using the mixer!!!

The slow speed gear (1st. gear) is engaged by a "diving key". Over time this key can wear to the point of failure, or break entirely and will no longer engage. This failure only affects the first gear, allowing the second and third gears to function properly. If you can stop the mixer attachment by hand while in 1st. gear, then you have the above problem. The unit must be serviced. If the key has been sheared there is the potential for a broken piece of this key to get into the trans. grease and cause further damage to the mixer. For a Hobart Tech., this is relatively easy to repair as a minimum number of parts need to be removed in order to expose the diving key.

Call your local Hobart office to schedule a repair. If you've never done any repairs on this model, do not tackle this project by yourself. I you have some experience with this model goto the hobartservice.com website, register for free and then download the parts list. Ensure that you have the list for the 3493 spec.

Good luck!

A200-T Hobart Mixer 1st speed have no torque


Check the spring pin that locks the motor shaft to the main drive gear in the gear box. You should be able to turn the motor from the back at the cooling fins and watch the shaft spin in the gear, that is if the pin is sheared. That is a common problem. if you plan on keeping this machine for a while, i recomend that you spend a little more on a quality spring pin,

good luck.

If the mixers are older the dive key shaft,spring or key are broken,if they are newer the key is sheared.Also check the nuts near the beater shaft and make sure there not too tight.

Age of a-200


There is a two letter code that translates to the month and year. You would need to call Hobart to translate. 1-937-332-3000

There are hints to the age, first two digit of the S/N is the factory. "11" are the older ones, spec vs ml on plate, type of power switch, bowl gaurd....
