Here is where you can buy the grease

There is no drain cause it's grease that is used. It needs to be removed manually and the 3 shafts need to be pulled to get all the grease out. If you are not mechaniclly minded best taking to a professional.

Where do I drain the oil in a 60qt. thunderbird mixer

If you are referring to the transmission, I believe it's a sealed unit.

  • 3-Speed gear box
  • Transmission: Wide-faced, hardened alloy steel, helical gears fully sealed in transmission lubricant with heavy-duty ball bearings and clutch combine for highly dependable, quiet operation.

    Hello, my Hobart AE200 seeps oil from the front panel. How do I top it up? How often does the oil need replacing and with what type of oil? Thanks

    It's not oil in the A200, it's #2 weight grease. Although when it gets old enough it can break down far enough to basically become oil (either that or someone put oil in it previously). There are a number of answers written on explaining how to disassemble the transmission and change the grease. Fill with 36 ounces #2 grease. FYI : disassembling the transmission and changing the grease is a very messy task and one can VERY easily reassemble the transmission incorrectly, so consider bringing the mixer to Hobart to have the job done.

    Kitchenaid Mixer leaking oil

    Hi Tim. Don't try to pour anything into the side openings, these openings are for the electrical brushes. You didn't state what model you have so my help is limited. Goto and click on the customer care tab. Enter your mixer's model# into the search window. Look for a parts catalog for your mixer. If there is one, download it.

    Your mixer uses grease to lubricate it. If it's leaking oil, the oil and old grease must be removed and replaced. Chevron FM ALC EP-2 is a "Food Grade" grease, use it to replace the old stuff. The transmission housing and Planetary assembly will have to be removed to accomplish this. It's a messy, but necessary task. Once completed, run the mixer for a few minutes each week to keep the oil suspended in the grease, this will extend the life of the new lube. Good luck!

    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.

    Transmission Grease for A120 and D300

    Thanks,, great info..

    I took mine all apart and the oil was just at the point of turning into grease. Nasty,, brown smelling ****.... I cleaned it all up and just used a sync 50w gear oil.. I over filled it and the extra ran out of the motor end of the gear box... It might have been about 2 table spoons too much.. Now it does not leak anymore.

    Thanks again,, jaybeesee
