The 1st gear on my Hobart a200 won't turn under dough load but 2nd will. Does that make sense? If I pop the top off what should I be looking for? I'd rather try at home cause the thing is heavy.
Odd... I'm still trying to fix my a200, but I have the opposite problem. I can get 1st to work. Second will spin faster, but the second you put it under load it goes back to the speed of first. Or if I flip one spacer I can get second to work correctly, but first gear spins the same speed as second. Third gear always works.
