Need advice for a Hobart a-200T
I just bought this used mixer and noticed that there is a rhythmic sound (almost a bump)in all speeds. I'm suspecting it might be in the planetary gear section but can not get it apart. I've taken the gears and grease out to inspect and all gears look pristine in there... Also when the gears were out, I did not hear that sound... Hummm It almost sound like there is something in one of the gears.... some foreign body or a chipped tooth... ( in the planetary) ?
The planetary does not just drop off the shaft one the two retaining nuts are removed. I'm wondering if the youtube video "A200 Hobart Service" showing the dropping of the planetary assembly has changed in the new models?
Also - I may just take apart and degrease everything.. other than seals is anything else a "must replace" at this point?
Thank you in advance..
