Hobart D300 gear problem

December 25, 2012 - 1:42pm -- MNBäcker

Hi all.

Thought I'd throw this out here:

When turning on the mixer (an older 30-qt Hobart), the motor runs fine, but most of the time, first gear runs either very slowly or not at all. When I turn it off, switch it into second gear and then back into first (without turning it on), then switching it back on in first gear, it works fine. Is that a problem with the shifter? How do I get to the shifter - can I reach it from the control panel, or do I have to go through the top?

Any help would be appreciated.
