* Model? Check side plate or post picture so I can check.
* Usually leaks are at the bearing seal(s). Replace.
* Frequent seal changes (less than 1-3 months). Replace bearings and seals.
* Check shaft near bearing seals for pitting (rust) that will damage seal. Remove and have a machine shop refurbish part. If possible; replace whole part and bearings. (or rebuild gear box.)
* Call your Hobart service rep for a quote.
* Check and replace lost oil as needed until machine is rejected (inspector, quality control, maintenance, etc.) Be careful oil does not get into food product.

SOURCE: Oil leak

instead of putting a gasket on tell him to take out all of the old grease out that is what has broken down and turning into oil causing a leak and if he can repace the seal around the agitator shaft replace the old grease with a high temp bearing grease or a good quality lithium grease

You're right, it's broken down grease. The A200 doesn't have a rubber seal to prevent this from leaking, either. That's normally OK, when the grease in reasonable condition, but when it breaks down bad enough, you see what you're seeing. The grease needs to be changed which requires disassembly of the transmission. It's quite a job (and very messy) if you're not familiar with it, but if you're interested I know I've read (and may have written one) instructions on disassembling the transmission on this website. If you decide to do the job yourself, be sure to remove the attachment hub (comes out to the inside of the transmission) and clean the passage well.

I have model A-200-D Hobart mixer. Serial # 1575984. It is leaking oil into the bowl. Who can I call to get an estimate to service or repair this machine?


The oil leeking into your bowl is old grease that has broken down into oil and is getting past your oil seal you need to take out all of your old grease and oil replace it with hi-temp grease or a good grade lithium grease and replace your agitor shaft oil seal

Oil leak on A200


OK guys, let's try to solve your common problems first then the rest will become clearer.

The Hobart A200,,,,,,,, does not use oil! It uses grease! If you see oil, it's because the grease is separating the oil in the grease. Both machines have not been serviced for at least 5 years. That's about the lenghth of the lifetime of most greases. I recommend that you call Hobart and ask about their tech. rates. All bearings should be checked carefully for wear, as should the worm gear, seal, and the Bronze gear that it turns. The Planetary (mixing part), should be removed as well, cleaned. and inspected. Replace the seal on the planetary and on the mainshaft. Removal of all old grease is required, as it's no longer doing the job it was designed to do, will result in advanced wear, and is the actual source of your problems. The seals were designed to seal grease, not oil.

If Hobart is too pricey for you, and they are for many, try to find someone from a wholesale restaurant equip. place who has rebuilt these machines, or find a repair shop who have experience with this Hobart model. If you'd like to tackle the job yourselves, go to www.hobartservice.com. Register for free, then find the files that match your mixer model and ML # and download the parts files for it. These exploded drawings will be very helpful with your task.

Either way, these mixers need to be opened up to remove existing oil and hardened grease, especially the oil! The planetary must be removed to drain any oil out of it and to regrease it. If you can get the oil out of the mixer, a short fix would then be to simply regrease the the mixer and put it back into service, leaving the existing seals in place. Don't forget to wipe out the shiny ring on the planetary, if it too has oil in it.

There is no seal at the hub. No seals can be tightened. The oil leak underneath the mixer comes from the motor shaft seal at the transmission case where the pinion gear enters the trans., it flows down into the mixer support column and drips onto the floor or counter, again, because of the breakdown of the grease.

If you tackle the job yourself, find your local Chevron Distributor and get several tubes of the approved grease, namely, Chevron FM ALC EP NNGI 2. Chevron p/n 230204-000. If you've found this solution helpful, please rate it as fixya!

Good Luck! ricardok45

K45SS leaks lubricant


Leaking of oil in a stand mixer is not necessarily indicative of a large problem.

Kitchenaid stand mixers are overpacked with oil to last the lifetime of the motor. If the motor sits idle for some time (is not used), the oil may begin to drip from the gears and settle. Oil leakage may primarily be seen from around the beater shaft or planetary action.

A stand mixer can lose up to a 1/4 cup of oil before it needs to be serviced.

It is recommended to run the mixer on speed 10 for 2 minutes in order to redistribute oil back into the motor. In order to prevent future occurences, this is recommended to be done every 3 weeks if mixer is not being used.
Exploded parts views for all mixers are available at www.kithchenaid.com. Click "Customer Care" in the upper right hand corner of the main page, and then select "Locate Manuals and Guides." You will need to enter the unit's model number exactly as it appears on the bottom of the mixer. It will be listed on a white sticker.
