If it has a spec.# instead of a ml.#it would have to be at least 25-30 yrs. old

Age of a Hobart Stand Mixer by Serial No.


the ML or spec number would be trackable from the resource site.
Enter the model number and check the date of the corresponding build number.

If it does not have a safety cage fitted, there are some areas of the countyr where it can not be used commercially, untill one is fitted. Depending on the model, that would be a thousand dollars or more.

A-200 mixer brush carrier orientation.


Hi. I can't help you with your first question...But I can help with your brushes problem. Unplug the mixer With the two inspection plates removed at the commutator end loosen the two screws of the brush holder which are above and below the motor bearing cover, they're the only larger screws now visible. Note the markings on the brush holder on the bottom right side where you removed the inspection plate. Rotate the brush holder to the other mark. Set the brush holder screws. Plug in the power. and start the motor. It should now be turning in the proper direction, if not, make small adjustments by loosening the set screws, and moving the brushes until it starts to your satisfaction. Be sure that the set screws are tightened when you're done. If you need further assistance, post a clarification.

I have the same spec. mixer as you do.

If this solution has assisted you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45

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....

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

HOBART A-200 MIXER- FIRST GEAR NOT WORKING


Hi, your mixer was manufactured in 1947. Hobart does not make public their service manuals. It sounds like the diving key is not engaging first gear with the spinning shaft. This is the ticking sound you hear/feel. This could be because of a broken spring in the mechanism that moves this key in and out, or the key itself has become so worn that it will no longer engage the first gear. The unit needs to be opened up to remove all old grease and oil, including the planetary. The condition of the grease in your description of the planetary, is a good indicator of the condition of the grease in the trans. Your unit probably needs an overhaul due to it's advanced age and grease state. Unplug the unit. You can gently remove the two circular metal dust covers underneath the top cover. With a good flashlight you can view the overall quality of the grease and the level of it. In an ideal world the grease should fill the entire cavity and no oil should be visible. Replacement grease should be Shell Darina EP-2 or Chevron ALC EP-2. You'll need 4-14 OZ. tubes of either type to do the job. The Spec. # for your unit is 3943 Look for drawing # PL-985 Once the cover is off the trans., it's relatively easy to get to the diving key once you remove first gear (the large round gear on top). Remove what you need in sequence, and replace in sequence. If you have a digital camera, take lots of dissasembly pics. When you are done, test in all gears by turning the motor cooling fins with your fingers in the normal direction of the motor rotation. Do not plug the unit back in until you've tested all speeds manually. Good luck! ricardok45

How many Watts on the B & D M205S


200 Watts! I have owned the M205S for 15 years! YUP! and used it to death! Doesn't owe me a penny! But I am so upset, because although the 200 Watt motor is still running great, one of the beaters just broke off. I didn't know if replacement beaters are still available for such an old model?
