If your N-50 is making a grinding noise there is a strong (almost certain) possibility that the cause is more than just needing more grease.

The sources of the noise are from the transmission case (front portion of the motor housing) and/or the planetary (where the blade attaches).

A search online should turn up the N-50 Service Manual.



With luck, it may be that the two adjustments specified in the Service Manual will do the trick

Three things come to mind regarding the noise:

1) If simply greasing the planetary does not do the trick, then

2) There are two adjustments to the transmission detailed in the Service Manual. And if that is not the cure

3) The transmission housing will need to be removed to find the source of the grinding. This is where the grease is truly encountered.

SOURCE: Hobart A200 Noise

After viewing and listening to your video, my first guess would be bad bearing(s). The sound varies with the speed of the agitator, so the noise is at the speed of the transmission shaft or planetary area. These mixers use very common standard bearings. As such, they are available very reasonably from sources OTHER than Hobart. You will need to take the transmission apart in order to find and solve the problem. Study the parts manual in detail. It seems complicated, but once you understand it, it is logical. I highly recommend that you get a really good understanding of how it works and goes together before you start taking it apart though.

Makes a grinding noise at higher speeds


If it is leaking you are going to have to go inside the gearbox to change the grease so whatever is wrong inside may become obvious when you take it apart. Remove accessory cap from the front and look for any dryish grindings inside there.

Ogrin56,

The problem is in your lift handle cams, you need to take the pedistal apart and clean and grease all the cams. I take them apart and wire brush them and use white lithium grease to keep them from freezing up.

Hobart D300T mixer oil change.


You can put in a all purpose grease. I use MOBIL 1 Synthetic Grease (RED IN COLOR) and it works fine -- you will need 3 tubs of 16oz's each tub. The cost is 30.00 or so. Make sure to get all of the old grease out and pack around each of the trans and worm shafts with the grease, then pack around the MOTOR GEAR and then put all back together. While running it make sure you can see the grease and hear the noise of the mixer through the 2 caps that are FILL caps on the head of the mixer. ALSO, you will find that you will lose 1st gear IF you have tigtened down too much on the LOCK nut, SOOOO loosen in small increments until all 3 gears are perfect and strong. ALSO, the key to noise adjustment is to Tighten (WHILE MIXER IS RUNNING) slowly the large nut that controls pressure on the worm transmission. The general rule with tigtening this nut is to tighten it till it will not tighten and then back off the nut -- IF the unit when starting does not run or it seems bound up when you first turn it back on, THEN you have tightened it TOO MUCH, SOOO back it off again (loosen it) until it starts smoothly and when you turn the mixer OFF it should come to a slow stop and not abruptly stop the mixer. Hope this helps some of you out there trying to do your own adjustments --

Sound like bearings


Ist check your agitator shaft for looseness. the shaft you put the beater on. wiggle side to side. if tight no play. If in first its quiet but you can here a grumble under load but second gets louder. and third even louder. If the shaft is tight. your gears down there are warn. you can take that all off with the two nuts underneath. and check the grease on the gears but even with new grease on them it most likely stay loud. grease it with hobart grease from your loacal hobart for the A-200 planitary not the transmision they also fve grease for Trans. if you can take the noise run it that way if not decide which arm & leg you want to give hobart for new gears.

Hobart N-50 mixer clangs on 1st and 2nd speed


CE is the marking that shows its european conformant.  I think the difference is mostly in terms of the no volt interlock switch.  This means the KA style N50 bowl won't work with the CE models - too low.
