Blakeslee CC-30 Planetary Mixer & dough hook not mixing correctly

My father and I are trying to start up a pizza joint and we are almost ready to go. I made a batch of dough using 25# flour (40# finish). When I turned the mixer on and set the speed everything was going ok I thought. I came back and found the hook was just spinning in the center of the mass, not really mixing. The hook was going around in orbit (gearcase), but not really spinning the hook itself. I would guess the orbit of gearcase was 100 revolutions vs the hook's 1 or 2 rotatations. I worked for Pizza Hutt and used a newer, similar planetary mixer. I remember putting in the ingredients and switching it on and doing other chores while listening for it get done, it would usually be done in a few minutes. but I struggled for 30 minutes with shutting off, removing hook, "rearranging" dough, reinstalling hook and turning on. The end result was a lumpy batch with some drier spots, I didn't wanna continue and make it too "tough". The only thing I can think of that I didn't try is speeding it up to something faster than I dared before. Thanks, -m

    While the unit is power off I can freespin the hook by hand, so I'm fairly confident its a broke key/pin. How should I go about looking at the keys? I have nuts/bolts on bottom (plate) of unit also on top under belt/pulley. What kind of sealer should I use when putting back together? Will it be a woodruff key or a shear pin, and will it be a standard size available at most hardware stores? thnx, -m

    Well there must be something im missing, because plate on underside (by hook) came off and there is another plate there with a cork gasket i didnt want to mess with. one thing for sure, it isnt "dropping" and we are way past sealer replacement. Unless you have been talking about the woodruff on the knuckle that the removable hook attaches to? If that is the case, then that key and knuckle is ok, it is the whole shaft that spins. Internally there is something that is broke, and not allowing it to engage.

    This is a old blakeslee cc-30. there is a plate under the belt drive pully that i want to look into tomorrow. someone has been in this machine before, both top and bottom. they used the same orange sealant and the fluid was new.

    My email is [email protected] if you send me an email, i can email you a pic by tomorrow night, btw thnx for help thusfar. -mike

    Well we disassembled the whole gear housing today and found it to be a badly worn ring gear and planetary gear. We suspect that the prevoius owner was either the "slicker" or the "slicked" (slick= diagnosed as bad, changed oil and wished best of luck). The gears were both worn to practically nothing, yet no shavings and fresh oil and sealer.. The machine is done, as per manufacturer said parts are obsolete and NLA. Thanks for your help Bigg T. BTW, is there a market for parts? I have a good motor, dough hook, 30qt pot for a Blakeslee CC-30 planetary mixer. Missouri, South Central State. thanks again, mike

You might contact a machine shop to see if you can get the gears rebuilt or if they can make a new set. It's got to be cheaper than a new mixer.

It sounds like you may have a sheared key on one of the shafts.with no product in the mixer will it run in any other speeds?when mixing pizza dough you should only use 1st gear.if it does run in other speeds you have a sheared key or broken shaft,if it doesnt run in any speeds drop the planetary and check the key on that shaft.

Hobart A-200 mixer gets hot and weak. Motor housing gets too hot to keep your hand on it. Service tech told me the motors usually don't go out. What other problem could it be?

I'd say you're most likely overloading the mixer. This mixer, and others similar in size, are frequently overloaded by people making pizza dough. If you are making dough, keep in mind the A-200's capacity is 9 lb. of 40% A.R. pizza dough, mixed for 5 minutes maximum. If you need to mix longer, the batch must be cut down even smaller, but I don't even know if you're mixing dough.

Try running the mixer unloaded (i.e. nothing in the bowl) for ten minutes or more and see if it gets hot. If it still gets hot, the motor's start circuit (varies depending upon age of the A-200; Hobart used numerous motors in the A-200 over the years, incorporating different starting circuits) most likely has problems. If it doesn't get hot when operating unloaded, then you're probably overheating the mixer by overloading it.

Dry clumps in pizza dough

Hi. You should consider a few things. They type of hook you use, can greatly affect your end result. If you're making a yeasted dough with a high protein percentage 12-13%, you should be using an "ED" hook, this is a spiral hook that has a sharp turn at the tip. You can find them on eBay for a competitive price. I believe that Hobart also sells them, but for a higher price. They are very good for mixing pizza type doughs, they also do an excellent job kneading the dough.

Have you checked the flour for lumps before it goes into the mixer? Have you tried sifting the flour?
Are you adding all the liquid and flour at once? If so try adding flour in stages to all the liquid. If you find that this solution helps you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45

A200 problem

Check the planetary.this is the bottom part of the mixer where you attach the hook.
You will see two nuts; make sure their tight as the planetary may have moved down.
