20 Most Recent Hobart FP41 16 Cups Food Processor Questions & Answers

have you tried to replace the contactor and see if that helps at all? If there is another issue like a bad switch contact then you can still replace that becuase some of those parts are universal

It is a thermistor and the value should be approximately 100k ohms at room temp.
You can substitute a pair of 100k ohm resistors to allow operation but to actually get the protector board to function as designed you will need the ~100k ohm thermistor with the correct temp / resistance curve bonded into the stator.
An option would be to use a standard motor starter for the protection although the wiring gets a bit tricky with the relays, aux switches and the reversing contactor.
Another option would be to imbed / affix a klixon type overload into the windings and wire this in series with your 100k ohm resistor.
This will still allow the board to indirectly protect the motor.

Hi, I just received an older 1612 Hobart, and fixed the same problem.

First i disassembled the linkage from the bottom, then i used a propane torch to heat the rods and the aluminum castings (carefully, bring the temp till it is hot to the touch) Hammering doesnt work well so i made a piece of pine appx 1x1" with a notch to use as a pry stick. put a thin piece of plywood against the casting so you dont crack the housing, as it is thin alum.

Worked for me, take your time
