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.

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

No, do not use Shell or Chevron grease or oil.
It will damage the gears and the interior of the machine. You must use food grade grease.
If you use industrial heavy duty grease you might have trouble with the local Code Enforcement ( if this machine is used in a restaurant or bakery )
depending on your state's rules, laws.
Here is a website for the grease:

About the age, hmm.. sorry but no i don't know anything.

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.
https://my.hobartcorp.com/resourcecenter/Pages/FilterByModel.aspx
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.

Mixer speed selector lever


Hi. I live in Canada. I called my Hobart Parts people and they tell me that your shifter is obsolete and the shifter is no longer available in North America. I have the same model as you. For your information, the Specifications # is 3943 and your mixer was manufactured in 1966. Your serial # is 1648855. The age of your unit pre-dates the ML identification numbering system.

The newer shifter you speak of is not compatible with your machine as hobart also made transmission changes when they built the newer model. It will not mate with your machine, so save your money and don't buy the new one. Your shifter lever is made of Aluminium.

You have 3 options.

1. Check around the Wholesale Restaurant Equipment places if you have any nearby and see if they have the part you're looking for. Often times they keep some of the old parts from obsolete machines that they can no longer repair.

2. Find a local welder who can weld on a short piece of aluminum to the remainder of your shifter or if you have the piece that broke off, weld that back on.

3. Search eBay.com for the original part. There are many thousands of these mixers still in use, and you might get lucky and find the lever.

Hobart L800 Mixer Age & Bowl Question


The manufacter date is actually a two letter code on the data plate. But being the s/n is an "11", factory #11, it's old.

The key number for getting the right parts on a Hobart is the "ML" or "Spec" number. It is most always a five diget number.

As far as your actual problem -- I'm confused.
