20 Most Recent Hobart H600 Stand Mixer - Page 4 Questions & Answers

The Hobart H600 is a 2 horse power, 60 quart mixer, it can be used for many things in the kitchen. It can be used to make about any kind of food that needs mixed, wiped or kneaded. It works well in a pizzeria for all facets of making pizza from the dough, to shredding the cheese with an attachment, to a restaurant that makes mashed potatoes and fresh bread, to a full service bakery.
However, the biggest thing that you need to know is the capacity of the machine. As overloading the machine can cause damage that may be costly and take a technician to fix. I do not know what attachments you currently have so I will go over a few of them.

The main attachments are a Wire whip, Flat beater, and Dough hook. There are three different types a "D" wire whip (has many wires and is evenly spaced) this is used to whip egg whites, whipping whip cream, etc. The "C Wing" (has six tines in it) is used for items that are heavy for the D wire whip, like whipping potatoes or icing. The last is the "I" whip is similar to the D wire whip just with less tines. The flat beater is used to mashing or mixing examples are mashed potatoes before they are whipped, cake mixes that do not require whipping, batters and icing. The Dough hook is used for kneading dough examples are pizza dough, bread dough, etc.

The biggest thing when using your mixer is to know its capacity for the material that you are mixing. All though this is one of the bigger machines it still has limits. You should refer to this the following link for the capacity of your machine:

There are also a few attachments that can be put on to the No. 12 attachment hub. A few of these are a vegetable slicer-grater and meat grinder.

All speed changes are accomplished in the transmission. Motor only runs one speed.

Usually mixers just like blenders run on a coil system. The coil system is usually such that when you leave the unit on for long periods of time usually about 3 to 5 mins at a stretch the coil starts to overheat. When this coil starts to overheat then it disturbs the rotating mechanism on the unit therefore the system seems like it refuses to come on when you put it on. Usually whe n you restart the unit is still hot and therefore restarting is a problem until it cools down.
Best way to minimise this problem is by turning the unit off intermittently while in use usually after a minute use put of for 10 seconds and restart this should ensure that the unit does not oveheat and restarting wont be a problem.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

If it has a bowl guard on it then the problem could be either the bowl height switch or the side switch on the contactor. If it does not have a bowl guard then the side switch on the contactor is the problem. If it has a bowl guard, make sure the bowl lift is operating the bowl height switch. The bowl must be all the way up to operate the bowl height switch.

Spindle? Are you refering to the planetary that holds the beater?Sometimes they are froze so bad that they have to be cut off. There are two threaded holes in the bottom of the planetary that can be utilized with the proper puller. The two holes that I am speaking of may still have bolts in them. The bolts are not securing anything, they are just there to keep the holes clean.

The front screw in the top cover threads into a standoff. This standoff threads into the transmission top cover and acts as a fill plug.

How could we possibly know what you are capable of doing?

Hobart H600... | Answered on Jul 15, 2010

If the shaft has two grooves above the spring. the retaining ring should be in the bottom groove. The nut on the bottom of that shaft should be tightened until it stops turning. If you do not tighten the bottom nut all the way you will destroy the brass gear the first time you run the machine.
