SOURCE: How to find the age of a Hobart N50

Hi Anne. Call your nearest Hobart parts place. The parts guys will be able to tell you the age and which plant it was manufactured in in the USA. Another source is the hobartservice.com website, look for discontinued products under the food machines group, then select mixers and browse until you find the file that dates machines. One thing to watch for when buying is oil leakage that appears to come from the bottom of the stand. This indicates that the transmission grease is partially separating the oil out of it and it's leaking out of the rear bearing and dripping down. If the leak seems excessive, pass on the purchase. This drip could also indicate excessive wear on the bearings. Also run the mixer in all speeds, if is sounds like a tank approaching, it probably needs a rebuild.

SOURCE: more info re: n50 hobart mixer

N-50 have very good motors the do have one non metal gear its made out of fiber. its the main gear that drives all 3 gears. are they woth 2,000.00 No way. you can get a used one on Ebay for far less. look for one with a round black ball on the shift handle not the all metal this will be one thats not the oldest as the oldest can be a big risk. and parts are more availble on the changes over the years such as the on/off switch look for a toggle switch not a plastic what looks like a wall light switch.

Year of manufacture


  • The K5SS was manufactured from 1978 to sometime in the 1980s (don't know if it made it into the 90s). Hobart sold its Kitchenaid division to Whirpool in 1982. If yior mixer has the Hobart logo on it then it was from 1978 to 1981 9 or 2. If it is identified only as Kitchenaid then it was made after 1981.

I need to know where to get original color paint for Hobart D300 Mixer


The place to get it would be, Hobart itself.
You will probably need to call their number as this is not considered a service item but they will have it. Simply because they use it for manufacturing their items.
Here are the number for the corporation

888-446-2278

937-332-3000

Here is the Website Link.

Year manufactored


If you call your nearest Hobart Parts place they can tell you. If they refuse this simple request, log on to www.hobartservice.com and look in the discontinued products menu, select Food Machines then Mixers and sift through the files until you find the documentation for serial numbers/dates. The lists are not complete and stop in the late 1980's. If you're lucky, you can find out which plant manufactured it, as the first two digits of the serial number indicate where it was built. The serial numbers are not in code, so it's relatively easy to get a date if you do the math. While you're there, download the manuals for parts and operation. You won't find the service manuals..."Top Secret"! Good Luck! Ricardok45.

Hobart A-200 serial # ?


Hi. Your mixer was manufactured in 1967. If you plan on keeping it, take the outer cover off, gently remove the two metal dust caps with a small screwdriver and look into each opening with a good flashlight to determine the quality and amount of grease in the trans. case.

Ideally the grease should almost fill the space with no oil visible. If you need to look further, I suggest that you open up the transmission cover, to determine the condition of the grease that lubricates the transmission. If you find that oil is seperating from the grease. you would do well to remove all of the oil and old grease and replace it with either Shell Darina EP-2, or Chevron FM ALC EP-2 grease. It's a messy job, but it will add years of life to your mixer.

Check the planetary seal, remove, clean and regrease the planetary gearing. With a mixer of this age, you never know if it has ever been serviced since it's manufacture or not. The grease must totaly encapsulate the trans. gears. As the grease breaks down it's level lowers and it leaves some of the upper gears without lubrication, and will result in preventable wear.

Good luck! If you found this solution helpful, please rate it. ricardok45
