Just finished the LAST step on my Hobart N-50
I've been using the information and everyone's helpful suggestions on TFL to help me fix up my N-50. The last step I needed to do was to replace the power cord. It was stiff and brittle with the outer casing/covering starting to break open. Before any wires would be exposed, I wanted to get this taken care of and make sure it was safe. The cord enters my older N-50 at the base of the mixer and not at the motor end-cap as found on the newer models. Finding the original cord set as being unavailable from Hobart, I took a gamble and went online and found another cord assembly that is available from Hobart. It comes with a strain relief as part of the cord and with a "C" clip that slides over the strain relief once inserted into the mixer body. The only modification required was to cut the crimped terminals that were on the black and white wires of the cord set, then strip off the insulation and wire nut the connections together as they were previously found in the mixer. The ring terminal for the ground wire attached perfectly where the old cord ground was attached. The Hobart part number for the cord I used was 00-123856-00001 . I look forward to working perfectly for years to come.
