Hobart HL200C Mixer - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

Hi. Your A200 is in need of service. The grease's lifespan has expired. There are two ways of doing this. First, the expensive way. Call for a Hobart Tech to come and service the mixer. This will take about 4-5hrs to service at a rate around $100.00usd per hour, plus the cost of parts. He/she will need to change all seals, remove old grease and oil, check all bearings and gears for excessive wear and replace as necessary, this includes the planetary gear.

Now for the affordable solution. Unplug the mixer, remove the top cover. Gently use a small screwdriver to pry off the two circular metal dust caps found on the transmission housing, use a good flashlight to determine, through these openings, the quality, quantity and condition of the grease inside the transmission case. If there's a lot of oil you can remove much of it a bit at a time by using a wire coat hanger to which you can attach bits of cloth to absorb as much oil as you can. Once oil is removed, add new grease through these same holes until full (Chevron FM ALC EP-2, food grade lube). Run the mixer for a couple of minutes to distribute the new grease. Fill to the top once again and replace dust covers. Remove planetary, clean, inspect change seal and re-grease.

OPTION (mechanically challenging) You can do a more thorough job by removing the trans. cover completely, removing the 3 gear shafts inspect all bearings and gears, change seals on mainshaft and planetary. Remove old grease and oil, clean gearshafts and gears. Parts drawings are available from www.hobartservice.com It's free to register and then locate your parts drawings. Be sure that you have the correct files for your Model #, ML# if there is one and Spec.#, all found on the info plate.

When disassembling, take a digital photo of every step and lay the removed components on a piece of cardboard in the removed sequence. These practices will become valuable during re-assembly.

Looks to be a drift pin missing. See parts diagrams in above manual.

Contact Hobart directly to inquire.

Try this.

Take two flat blade screwdrivers and slip the blades between the planetary and the mixer body (on opposite sides) pry it off.

This has worked for me.

Contact Hobart directly to inquire. You probably want a service manual.

you need professional service. The gearboxes are full of grease and not nice to work on. Cogs have shear pins.

It sounds like either a partly stripped gear or a broken driving pin. If it is one of those options though I'm surprised it has not stopped completely.

Hobart Food... | Answered on Jun 17, 2019 | 75 views

one of two issues:
-either it has started pulling more amps than needed after many years of faithful service, or
-you now have something else plugged into the same circuit that is causing the circuit to trip

in either case, you will need an electrician to inspect and verify with multimeter (unless you know how to do so yourself). try unplugging any new items you may have purchased since just before the issues started

There is a shear pin in the gear in the gearbox head which shears when it is overloaded.. You need professional service.

It MAY be the 4th item on this page
