SOURCE: Hobart 140 Qt Mixer 4 speed. needs the oil changed? what kind of oil to use?

You can use a heavy weight gear oil or call the local hobart branch for it.To remove oil----Look under the mixer where the beater shaft is in the back and you will see a three quarter inch nut,remove this nut and drain the oil then put nut back in.To fill the unit remove the top cover screws and remove the top,you will see a long hexagon nut in length,remove this and grab a funnel then add the oil---be patient it takes time to fill as the oil is heavy.

SOURCE: Need oil/grease for Hobart 20 qt. mixer

Hi. Your A200 is in need of service. The grease's lifespan has expired. There are two ways of doing this. First, the expensive way. Call for a Hobart Tech to come and service the mixer. This will take about 4-5hrs to service at a rate around $100.00usd per hour, plus the cost of parts. He/she will need to change all seals, remove old grease and oil, check all bearings and gears for excessive wear and replace as necessary, this includes the planetary gear.

Now for the affordable solution. Unplug the mixer, remove the top cover. Gently use a small screwdriver to pry off the two circular metal dust caps found on the transmission housing, use a good flashlight to determine, through these openings, the quality, quantity and condition of the grease inside the transmission case. If there's a lot of oil you can remove much of it a bit at a time by using a wire coat hanger to which you can attach bits of cloth to absorb as much oil as you can. Once oil is removed, add new grease through these same holes until full (Chevron FM ALC EP-2, food grade lube). Run the mixer for a couple of minutes to distribute the new grease. Fill to the top once again and replace dust covers. Remove planetary, clean, inspect change seal and re-grease.

OPTION (mechanically challenging) You can do a more thorough job by removing the trans. cover completely, removing the 3 gear shafts inspect all bearings and gears, change seals on mainshaft and planetary. Remove old grease and oil, clean gearshafts and gears. Parts drawings are available from www.hobartservice.com It's free to register and then locate your parts drawings. Be sure that you have the correct files for your Model #, ML# if there is one and Spec.#, all found on the info plate.

When disassembling, take a digital photo of every step and lay the removed components on a piece of cardboard in the removed sequence. These practices will become valuable during re-assembly.

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

What kind of oil i can used for hobart d300


Transmission uses #0 weight grease, best to get direct from Hobart (their grease is the correct weight and approved by U.S. FDA & USDA as safe for use in food equipment) but if you insist on not doing so, at least obtain an Extreme Pressure #0 grease and don't overpack the transmission, I believe it should have 35 oz. if memory serves right.

Uses a heavier grease for the planetary gear, use #2 weight. Don't need much, just a light coat on the planetary gear.

Bowl lift rails use medium weight oil, again use food grade oil supplied by Hobart.

From what part of the mixer do we change the oil? And what kind of oil does it use?


Use food grade grease and you may have to split the motor housing.The grease is for the gearing in the head. At an Appliance parts store That's where to get some. :-)

Hobart D300 Mixer: Has no torque and no speed in any gear


You have a gear with broken teeth or one sliding out of place because the brass shims are eaten up. Hobarts have what is called a planetary, round head where the grease caps are, and there are no clutches for this planetary. These units are not made to change gears while unit is running (#1 problem of gear failure) (#2 is overloading the bowl) Hobarts need a really stiff GREASE, not oil. If you decide to take the planetary apart, get all the syrup out and replace with a stiff axel grease. It is a very difficult job replacing a gear & ALL the shims. The round head where the grease caps are can easily be removed to do this.

My Hobart D300 mixer appears to be leaking oil/grease


Hi,I'm a hobart tech and repair these mixer's often.If you see oil in the drip cup then the center shaft seal in the transmission is worn.If there is oil near the transformer then the motor shaft seal is also bad.Hobart doesnt release their service manuals to the public but if you go to their site www.hobartcorp.com you can register for free and get a parts manual thats helpful.If you need help with the repair let me know,i can step you through it.

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 --

Old hobart s-30 mixer oil


man you got an oldie but goodie mixer!im a hobart service tech for 8 years and have only seen about two dozen,unfortuantly parts for these units are exhuasted.as for the sight glass they do become cloudy over time and you cant determine the oil level.use a heavy gear case oil.the only way of telling is to drain the oil or if the unit is loud you should probably cange the oil.
