Question about Hobart Food Mixers

1 Answer

Any suggestions about how to remove a stubborn planetary from Hobart N 50?

I have the Hobart N-50 Service manual and have removed the drip cup and driven out the taper pin. The planetary, even with moderate persuasion, will not come off. Looks like the shaft may be seized to the planetary.

Try this.

Take two flat blade screwdrivers and slip the blades between the planetary and the mixer body (on opposite sides) pry it off.

This has worked for me.

Testimonial: "Thanks, John, for your suggestion. I was able to complete what I wanted to do (renew grease, ensure gears were is good shape) without having to remove the planetary. Have the N-50 back together and it is running smoothly so I shall leave it for now. Will try your approach when I need to service again."

Hobart n -50 where do i put grease in, machine makes a grinding noise


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.

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.

Is the oil leaking down the beater shaft?Remove the silver drip cup,3 screw's one in the midlle,one on the right and one on the left.Once you drop the drip cup if it's filled with oil then you may need the seal's in the transmission replaced.

Remove the shiny drip ring on the planetary, use a small screwdriver and gently pry it off. Remove the "Tapered pin" that holds the planetary on the shaft, gently use a punch and a hammer to do this. This pin can only be tapped out in one direction. Pull downward on the planetary assembly until it comes free. Examine the small gear and bearing for excessive wear, examine the ring gear that remains in the mixer body for wear. Clean and re-grease these gears if they look OK. These gears are in operation in any gear and as such, receive the most wear. When re-assembling the planetary re-install the tapered pin the way it came out. The previous solution will address the transmission gearing. Replace parts as necessary. Good luck. Please rate this solution if it helps you. ricardok45
