Top 20 Hobart Mixer Only, Planetary, Bench, 12 Qt., HL120BUILDUP Questions & Answers

Depending on how old the mixer is, I would check the belts (if it is belt driven) to the planetary gears. If it is not belt driven, it sounds as if the motor is faulting out. I would replace the motor brushes first before spending money for a new motor. This may not be an intelligent question but I have to ask, are you overloading the mixer? A 12 quart mixer will do fine with cake batter but when you mix pizza or bagel dough, the moisture content is much less and it is equivalent to cement. Sorry, I had to ask because I have seen this before. Good luck and I hope this helps.

They sale stuff, but you can do the same thing with vinegar. Not it's not going to hurt it, its made for food. Grab a jug of vinegar. put you a good amount in. Start it, water will finish filling as needed, then it will start washing.
You can do it again if needed. If you see a lot of old way to get that stuff to release and be washed away is to add some vegetable oil..not much, like a teaspoon. That old soap will soak up the oil and allow the water to knock it away.

What is the fault you are trying to reset? Hobart dishwashers don't have a reset button, they reset themselves when the fault have cleared

By rotating the black rotary switch to the required setting. Cup is setting 1, plates is setting 2, and pots is setting 3. The actual difference between each one is 1= 60 second wash, 2= 90 second and 3= 120 seconds
