    only spin on 2nd and 3rd gear no 1st, can you help?

    Mine works in speeds 2 and 3, just not in speed one. I turned it on and off and went back and forth between speeds trying to get it realigned or whatever. A spoon fell in the bowl while it was running on speed 1 and it shut itself off. Now when you turn it on in speed 1, the motor still runs, but the beater doesn't turn.

I can't get the main shaft out of an A200 Hobart Mixer to service the lower bearing. Any advice?

Honestly, get someone in that knows Hobart mixers. The a200 is an amazing machine, but you will need to strip the entire gearbox apart to get to the bearings. Take this from someone who works for Hobart :)

Hobart 20QT guessing old a200 motor runs fine removed top cover to see but gears not working and mixer does not spin Any diagnosis Help greatly appreciated

The first vertical shaft has a brass gear that runs off the rotor. The ancient models had a spring loaded slip clutch built onto the gear. Upgrade it with a worm shaft kit which gives you a complete new shaft and fixed gears. I think it includes the upper and lower bearings. Maybe replace the grease if it has not been done. Or look for a sheared key on the worm shaft.

Hobart A200 1st and 2nd gear have same speed after lever was removed and reinstalled.

I took mine apart completely and reassembled everything and greased everything and mine is doing the same thing. I'm thinking, also, that it is the tightening of the top lock nut.

Hobart A200 mixer won't start

My fantastic guy just rebuilt my A200. He says it's likely that your back plate is slightly off center so that the center arbor is touching the windings-- any contact and the machine won't run. The tolerances are thousandths of an inch in there.

A200 HP rating

yes the early models had 1/3 the later 1/2 but I think it was more a marketing thing to keep up with competitors the 1/3 always worked fine

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.
