Operation and Care of Hobart Mixer Bowl Guard

 
If you have a Hobart Mixer, chances are that you own a bowl guard as well.  From bowl scrapers and wire ships to attachments for grinding and slicing, Hobart has the tools you need to get your mixing job done. These mixer accessories deliver the same type of results you have come to expect for your business from Hobart. Here are some instructions that will help you install and keep your bowl guard running at its highest efficiency.
 
Installing the Wire Cage Assembly
  1. Lower mixing bowl and remove agitator.
  2. Position the ring of the Wire Cage assembly so the Front-Center Retainer Shoe is lined up with the gap in the Circular Ridge on the Planetary Drip Cup.
  3. Position the grooves so the rear retainer shoes straddle the Circular Ridge on the Planetary Drip Cup.
  4. Lift the front of the Wire Cage assembly so the Front-Center Retainer Shoe passes up through the gap in the Circular Ridge on the Planetary Drip Cup.
  5. Rotate the Wire Cage assembly to your right until all three retainer shoes straddle the ridge on the Drip Cup in the three opposed locations.
  6. Continue rotating the Wire Cage assembly so the opening is to the front of the mixer (to install the accessory) or until it stops at the Front-Center Position.
 Operation
  1. The mixer will not operate until the wire cage assembly is in the center position with the lever in the saddle slot.
  2. To add ingredients to the bowl, stop the mixer, lift the lever and rotate the wire cage assembly 180 degrees
  3. After adding ingredients, rotate the wire cage assembly back to the center until the lever drops into the saddle slot, and start the mixer. Some ingredients, such as liquids or powders, may be added through the wire cage assembly while the mixer is running. If the Bowl Support is not all the way up, the mixer will not operate unless the START switch is held in.
 
Cleaning
  1. The wire cage assembly may be removed and cleaned in a sink or a dishwasher. 
  2. To remove wire cage assembly, lower the mixing bowl, remove the agitator, hold the wire cage assembly with one hand, and with the other hand, push down on the black release knob to release the saddle shoe. Push wire cage assembly to the rear and downward. 
  3. After cleaning, replace wire cage assembly as described in installing the wire cage assembly.
Wire Cage Assembly (Built After July, 2004) 
The Wire Cage assembly can be rotated out of the way to add ingredients or to access the bowl and agitator. Some ingredients, such as liquids or powders, may be added through the Wire Cage assembly while the mixer is in operation. An ingredient chute accessory is available to assist in adding ingredients. (Contact your local Heritage Parts representative for more information on additional parts.)
 
Note how the grooves on the nylon retainer shoes allow the Wire Cage to ride around the Circular
Ridge of the Planetary Drip Cup.
 
  • To open the Wire Cage assembly, rotate it to your left.
  • To close the Wire Cage assembly, rotate it to your right until it stops in the Front-Center Position.
 NOTE: The Wire Cage assembly must be returned to the Front-Center Position for the mixer to
operate.
 
Remove Wire Cage Assembly  
  1. Lower the bowl. Remove the accessory and bowl.
  2. While holding the wire cage securely with both hands, rotate it to your left until the front-center retainer shoe reaches the gap in the circular ridge on the planetary drip cup.
  3. Lower the front of the wire cage and move the wire cage assembly slightly to the rear so the rear retainer shoes clear the ridge of the drip cup. The Wire Cage assembly can now be removed.
  4. Wash the Wire Cage assembly in a sink, rinse with clear water and dry with a clean cloth.
  5. The stainless steel Splash Guard can be wiped off and/or washed with a cloth or sponge using warm, soapy water. Rinse with clear water and dry with a clean cloth.
Reinstall Wire Cage Assembly
  1. Position the ring of the Wire Cage assembly so the Front-Center Retainer Shoe is lined up with the gap in the Circular Ridge on the Planetary Drip Cup.
  2. Position the grooves so the rear retainer shoes straddle the Circular Ridge on the Planetary Drip Cup.
  3. Lift the front of the Wire Cage assembly so the Front-Center Retainer Shoe passes up through the gap in the Circular Ridge on the Planetary Drip Cup.
