Hobart C-100 Mixer - service manual? any rebuild experiences?
This is for the Hobart enthusiasts who read TFL. Thanks, btw, for all the helpful posts. It's been an education. I have (for the second time) come close to destroying a N-50 by mixing too-large batches of bread dough; after reading the larger mixer search & recommendation posts, I ended up with a Hobart C-100, model 17664. I realized that I might never be able to obtain parts for it, since it's been out of production for over 20 years, but I was able to find one that was never used. That should mean that all the parts are in good shape (except perhaps for some unseen rust). The seller thought it had sat in a warehouse all its life - the warranty card and manual packet were still attached to it with wire. I'm sure the grease has long since drained out of it, and am ready to take it apart and re-pack it. (And I've bought mixer-specific grease for that purpose.)
So I'm wondering if any of you Hobart fanatics out there who have this machine have ever (like breadman_NZ with his N50) taken yours apart and fixed it? If so, would you share your experiences, warnings, etc? And does anyone have a service manual for this beast? I have scoured the web and not found one. I did find all the user / parts manuals on Hobart's site, and have downloaded them; if this is all there is, I'm glad to have them. But it would be so helpful to have a real service & repair manual, if anyone has one.
