Question about Hobart N50 Stand Mixer

1 Answer

Mystery part to a 1950 Hobart N50 Mixer; serial number 997185

I have taken apart a 1950 Hobart N50 mixer and had many of the parts replated/restored/painted. I took the pieces back to a Hobart service facility and the technician there put the entire unit back together but has 4 remaining mystery parts left over. (1 part, 4 pieces)

Due to the age of the unit, the service department has no drawings nor parts diagram that give a clue as to where this part goes.

The mystery part is cylindrical and looks like a roller bearing with a hole drilled completely through its center. The part is .687 inches long with an outside diameter of .375 inches and hole drilled through the length with an ID of .220 inches.

On later years diagrams, there is a mention to a part (sleeve) that covers the four bolts that hold the motor into the body and to protect the electrical wire connections. It is not this part.

Do you have a clue as to where this part goes?

    I have been to Hobart's website as you suggest, however, the site does not have the N50 manuals, specs or any drawings from 1950, the year in which my unit was manufactured. The unit was put together by a Hobart Technician at a Hobart facility. We do have the parts drawings from Hobart for all of the parts except for the motor area. These drawings are actually a part of the Instruction Manual, form No. 5328-A, published in March of 1948.



    We have subsequntly deptermined that the parts did in fact belong in the motor area and are spacers on the studs that hold the motor to the housing.



    If anyone has a parts drawing for the motor area, I would love to have it!

Go to www.hobartservice.com, register, then go to select "food machines" in the Product Group, then "mixers"and look for the Discontinued Products, then find the N-50 mixer drawings, they are all there, even the old ones. Look through the "exploded" drawings for your extra parts. It seems to me that the tech who put this together should know if they belong to this mixer or not. Does he work for Hobart? Or is he a repair person who states that he knows how to repair Hobart products. If he does'n't work for Hobart, these parts may have been on his bench BEFORE he looked at your mixer. A true Hobart Tech has access to specs on ALL models and the ability to access the Service Manuals. If you find this solution helpfull, please rate it. ricardok45

    WJAD. I'm amazed that Hobart doesn't have the drawings. Address your search to bigg t, the resident Hobart Tech on this website, he may be able to help you.



    Could you please send me some info about your repainting and refurbishing of your mixer? I'm looking for a gently used A-200 for a home project and Hobart Gray is not a color I'd like in my kitchen (my N-50 is Hobart Gray). I'd like some idea of how much time it takes to prep. a mixer for repainting, and project cost. Thanks in advance. I'm sure you'll get a lot of use and satisfaction from your project. Regards. ricardok45.

Hobart N50 noises


The frequency is the same in all gears.
disconnect the power and invert the mixer and remove the planetary after driving out the taper pin, then you can access the transmission. It may be a rotor shaft bearing in the motor or no grease on the worm gears.
Nice touch with the video.

Hobart N50 stator assembly replacement


You can go to www.hobartservice.com. select parts and type the machine ML number from the data plate. here are 5 different ML options, otherwise I would have given you the part number.
It will open an exploded view of YOUR machine's build, complete with part numbers.
You can then call your nearest Hobart dealer for a cost and availability. They are still a current model, and for their size, an excellent mixer worth repairing.

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.

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.

Hobart N50


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.

Noisy Hobart N50 Mixer


First, there is a double set screw (one on top of the other - if they are both there) towards the back of the planetary.

Remove the first screw, it should have a normal tip, not pointy. Run the mixer in 1st and adjust the screw, first out then in. Then repeat in 3rd. You should clearly hear a difference.

If not, you probably need to repack the grease in the transmission. The proper grease is called "Darina II". It's expensive ~ $35 per mixer.
