It's a guess, because I haven't used Industrial Hobarts for a while, but the contactor unit for the pump is faulty. These are usually hidden behind the control panel or the bottom kick panel.

Check water pressure, check valves, unscrew connection at the unit and check for debris screen that may be clogged. If that does not work then you are looking at troubleshoot the actual valves to see if they have failed or are having a power issue.

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

depending on the age and use, the problem it that when the motor stops the amerture shaft bearings are slight worn, causing it to rub on the magnets and grounding the positive charge to the amerture which will arch and through the breaker. May need to invest in a new grinder.

I am having the same exact problem on an old Hobart Beta Mig 200
sometimes i can weld for 5 minutes and other times as soon as I hit the trigger it trips the 50amp breaker. Any help?

I suspect that you have something in the wash pump. It might have gone through the filter or when you cleaned the base filter, it dropped down the hole.

I suggest that you search on youtube on:

On removing objects from a dish washer pump, you will need to pull mains plug out gain access to wash pump. Then, use a screwdriver in back pump shaft. Turn and you will feel if there is something in pump and sometimes you can vacuum out through base filter using a wet vac.
Hope that helps.

If you see F04, it is likely that there is water inside the air trap or pressure transmitter for wash tank is faulty. Sometimes it happened due to water inside pressure pipe.

measure ouput on ALL available sockets - anything?
Take cover off electric motor-generator, visually inspect windings.
Measure continuity of all stator windings (2 or 3 points usually)
Measure continuity of stator thru brushset.
If all measures ok - has to be AVR module.

There is no mistery in generator - just stator to induce and rotor to obtain voltage.
