My mother needs a replacement bowl for a Model 4C Hobart mixer . The glass bowl broke last year. My father bought the mixer in the 70's. She has expressed the desire for a dough hook as well. I need to find a catalog or a name and number to call.

Hi.

The Hobart/Kitchenaid model 4C Stand Mixer was produced between 1961 and 1977.

This unit is now a vintage piece chased by collector. Parts dealers do not sell parts anymore for such an old model.

The parts must be purchased on the second hand and vintage market, best source is Ebay. Put 4c mixer or kitchenaid 4c to find parts.

The bowl is easy to find, it is part 4162158, regular retail price for replacement is $44. buy the glass one on Ebay, that will be the original one mounted on first models.

Here Ebay list.

Here also a forum where you can contact more Kitchenaid vintage appliances owners or collectors.

-----------------

The dough tool is not even easy to find on Ebay. Try contacting Kitchenaid and see if they can give you a compatible part.
If they have the original one (unlikely) , then do not be surprised if part price is over $30.

If you find a 4c with tools for spares on Ebay , buy it, and resell the parts you do not need. The whole mixer with bowl and one tool is worth over $50.

The original owners manual can also be purchased from Kitchenaid/hobart

Regards.

I realize this post is very old, but for others who may have the same questions, the 4C unfortunately never had a dough hook or paddle made for it as it wasn't strong enough to hold up to thick doughs. I'm sad about that!

Kitchenaid mixer glass bowl broke. I need a replacement. I have a 4c mixer. Do you know where I can find one?


The glass bowl for the 4c mixer is much different than the bowls that are currently available. Your best option is going to be to find a used bowl off of eBay.

Your other option would be to replace the bowl lock plate and buy a new bowl for the mixer. I have had a few customers say this works, and I have had a couple say that replacing the bowl lock plate and bowl did not work. So you can give this a try as well.

I recently acquired a KitchenAid/Hobart Model 4C stand mixer for free. It seems to work okay but I?m in need of a flat beater, dough hook and wire whip as it came with only the juicer attachment. Do you...


A number of attachments were available for the 4C, such as a juicer, a meat grinder, etc., all of which ran off the PTO on the front of the housing.  The only beater, however, was the wire one.  No dough hook was ever made.  I have been told that the motor didn't have the necessary power to run a dough hook.

I have a 20 qt Hobart Mixer. The magnet that is needed to allow the unit to run, is missing. We have used a store bought horseshoe style magnet for the last year or so, but does not work now. Do you...


the magnet is in the front gaurd. I suspect you have it taped on the back. looked behind the gaurd and you will see a small nut with a threaded stud looking thing in the neck of the mixer this is a electricl switch the magnet works. maybe your magnet is not ligned up on it or the switch is bad and you need a new one. the head is held on with 4 bolts onder the head is the switch and another switch for the bowl lift. . Best solution is have your front gaurd on and sliding corretly get a new magnet for it and it will lign up. If I cam and fixed it only way I would is with gaurd magnet. Can you tell I am factory trained and been drilled by Hobart lawyers many times. LOL never bypass a Saftey
One thing if mixer does not run at all it could be many things On/oof switch, Timer, bowl lift shwitch. Gaurd switch, realy that runse it in gaurd models. so be to be sure you need me LOL kidding. Good liuck
