Kitchenaid mixer - turns once and turns off, worm gear is fine
Usually, the beater not turning or not turning under a load is due to a damaged gear, but there are other components in them to check.
There is the worm gear, pinion gear, bevel pinion gear, internal ring gear and the attachment hub gear. The worm follower gear is usually the most common and is usually obviously stripped. However, it could be other gears damaged or worn.
The other part to check would be the motor bearings and the motor bearing plate. These require a bit more taking apart to get to but could be causing the issue.

Hope this helps.
Hobart HL 600 Trips GFI breakers
The sure fire tester for this problem is called a MEGGER and it measures the resistance between the insulations on everything. You could try that to see what it says. Some motors dont work well with GFI because they are capacitive start and that trips the GFI.

HOW OLD IS MY MIXER
The Hobart A-200 is an 80's product. These first came on the market around 1985. There is no way to date the one you have without examining it.
The best estimate is 25-30 years old.
