If it has the lubricant specified by Hobart then it is not toxic.

I have a Hobart A-200 that no longer will mix a 5lb bag of flour to make dough. The hook after a while just bogs down and the motor continues to run smoothly. When we first bought the machine it easily...


I don't know how long you've owned this mixer, but these motors do wear down over time. They don't last nearly as long as the ones made decades ago, the plain basic workhorse mixers with no frills.

Have you tried mixing smaller amounts to see if that works better? Unfortunately with the high cost of servicing, you may find that repair will exceed more than half the value of the unit... leaving the purchase of a new one as your most economical choice.

Hi, We have a 3phase Hobart D300 Mixer onboard and the cooks are complaining that there is not enough grunt. I have checked the 3 speeds and they are working finee however when dough is being mixed it...


Hello Veelec,

As the machine is mixing dough it seems that it is getting sluggish. This is caused by the machine being over loaded. Although it is a 30 qt mixer that is for liquid filled capacity. I do not know what kind of dough you are mixing so I will give you a light to medium dough and then the heavy dough capacity. Also on this machine all dough should be mixed in speed 1 or low to keep from damaging the machine.

You will need to know the Absorption Rate (AR) of you dough, to find this you take the weight of the water divide the weight of the water and multiply by 100.

AR = Water Weight / Flour Weight x 100%

The higher the percent the higher the capacity the lower the percent the lower the capacity. Also the temperature of the water will have to be considered as the colder the water the harder the dough it is to mix the dough the batch should be reduced by 15% to 20% for water temperature between 65-75 degrees.

For a Light to Medium dough with a 60% AR the unit capacity is 45 pounds in first speed.
For a Heavy dough at 55% the units capacity is 30 pounds in first speed.

The above capacities are for bread doughs, if you are doing pizza dough, dough nut dough or wheat dough please post back to this thread and I will help you to find the capacities.

I hope that I have helped you with your problem and would like to thank you for using FixYa to find a solution to your problem.

Hobart A-200 mixer gets hot and weak. Motor housing gets too hot to keep your hand on it. Service tech told me the motors usually don't go out. What other problem could it be?


I'd say you're most likely overloading the mixer. This mixer, and others similar in size, are frequently overloaded by people making pizza dough. If you are making dough, keep in mind the A-200's capacity is 9 lb. of 40% A.R. pizza dough, mixed for 5 minutes maximum. If you need to mix longer, the batch must be cut down even smaller, but I don't even know if you're mixing dough.

Try running the mixer unloaded (i.e. nothing in the bowl) for ten minutes or more and see if it gets hot. If it still gets hot, the motor's start circuit (varies depending upon age of the A-200; Hobart used numerous motors in the A-200 over the years, incorporating different starting circuits) most likely has problems. If it doesn't get hot when operating unloaded, then you're probably overheating the mixer by overloading it.

Mixer shuts down midway through mixing dough on low speed.Is ther a thermal overload next to contactor that may be overheating


A thermal overload is an option on the D300 and is self resetting. Assuming your machine is being operated at it's full rated voltage, you might have to cut down on the amount of dough you are mixing. If I recall correctly, the relay and overload is located in the base or behind the speed selector plate.

Hobart A-200 mixer (OLD!) runs hot & shuts down.


You have killed it by overloading the bowl. Hobart recomends no more than 65% bowl capacity on doughs & 75% on batters or icings. Replace the motor or the whole unit

Dry clumps in pizza dough


Hi. You should consider a few things. They type of hook you use, can greatly affect your end result. If you're making a yeasted dough with a high protein percentage 12-13%, you should be using an "ED" hook, this is a spiral hook that has a sharp turn at the tip. You can find them on eBay for a competitive price. I believe that Hobart also sells them, but for a higher price. They are very good for mixing pizza type doughs, they also do an excellent job kneading the dough.

Have you checked the flour for lumps before it goes into the mixer? Have you tried sifting the flour?
Are you adding all the liquid and flour at once? If so try adding flour in stages to all the liquid. If you find that this solution helps you, please rate it. Good luck! ricardok45

Hobart A200 diagnosis


the first A-200's have a worm gear drive that will slip when old but also when mixing dough somtimes the dough will push the mixer aherad of its self and look like its slowing but its just catching up. if you have a old worm shaft it will have a spring on it is how to tell. it is replaced with a shaft that is all keyed and has no slip or give unless a key shears.
