If your Attachment Touches the Bowl of your Hobart 60-140 Quart Mixer

You should check your machine’s agitator clearance regularly. If it touches the bowl, this can do damage to the bowl itself and different components inside the unit. In some cases, the bowl clamp might not be closed or improperly adjusted. Here are standard instruction for readjusting the attachments on Hobart mixers:

Step 1 – Unplug your mixer.

Step 2 – Remove the apron by unfastening the thumbscrews.

Step 3 – Adjust the stop screw on the unit by loosening the bottom locking nut and turning the stop screw. Turn it counterclockwise to increase clearance or clockwise to decrease clearance. Tighten the locking nut as you hold the stop screw.

Step 4 – Place the apron back on, and secure it to the unit by fastening the thumbscrews.

Step 5 – Plug the mixer back in. Check the adjustment by operating the bowl lift a few times. Make sure to check your manual for the mixer’s proper maximum clearance.

How to quickly clean your oven in four simple steps:

Here is how to quickly clean your oven in four simple steps:

Wipe out the crumbs from the sides and bottom of the oven-letting crumbs build up in your oven can affect the flavor of your food and become a fire hazard.

Pull out the racks and wipe them down with hot soapy water (rinsing them too of course). This will get rid of food debris, and liquids that have accumulated there during the day.

Wipe the inside of the door and walls with warm water (take care to remove buildup around the fans to ensure proper air flow)

Leave the doors open to air dry at night.

If you do this every day your oven will last longer, cook better, and produce better food for you-and it will take less than 5 minutes too!

How to change the saw blade on your Hobart meat saw

Remove the upper and lower pulley covers. Raise the gauge plate to its vertical position. Remove the right table by lifting its right side and sliding the table to the right to free it from the locating pins. Remove the column guard. Turn the tension adjuster counterclockwise until it stops (this will release tension on the blade by raising the lower pulley). Raise the plastic blade guide on the lower blade guide assembly and release the blade from the upper and lower blade guides. Free the blade from the blade scrapers in the lower pulley area and release it from the pulleys. Remove the blade.

Make sure the pulleys are properly installed and the pulleys are latched. Install the new blade with the teeth pointing to the right and down as you face the front of the saw. The blade must fit between the V’s on the blade scrapers, in the slots of the upper and lower blade guides, and must not touch any of the pulley flanges. The lower blade guide must be installed after the blade is installed.

Reinstall any removed parts. After the blade has been installed, set the blade tension by turning the tension adjuster clockwise until it stops.
