There is a problem in the planetary, there is wear or lack of lubrication causing wear in something in that area. Replacing the planetary is not a big or expensive job.

When mom made Angel food she beat it until the batter formed peaks, Mine didn’t do that. Did I do something wrong?


This is a fatless cake that uses beaten egg whites as the mechanism to add 'air'. You should add Cream of Tartar as a stabilizer. Also, there must be no oil on the bowl or the whisk or it won't form peaks. Everything must be washed with detergent, rinsed well and dried with clean paper towel. Fold in half the flour with half the egg whites, then carefully fold in the rest.

Angel food cake, or angel cake, is a type of sponge cake made with egg whites, flour, and sugar. A whipping agent, such as cream of tartar, is commonly added. It differs from other cakes because it uses no butter.

What can you use for a hobart h600


The Hobart H600 is a 2 horse power, 60 quart mixer, it can be used for many things in the kitchen. It can be used to make about any kind of food that needs mixed, wiped or kneaded. It works well in a pizzeria for all facets of making pizza from the dough, to shredding the cheese with an attachment, to a restaurant that makes mashed potatoes and fresh bread, to a full service bakery.
However, the biggest thing that you need to know is the capacity of the machine. As overloading the machine can cause damage that may be costly and take a technician to fix. I do not know what attachments you currently have so I will go over a few of them.

The main attachments are a Wire whip, Flat beater, and Dough hook. There are three different types a "D" wire whip (has many wires and is evenly spaced) this is used to whip egg whites, whipping whip cream, etc. The "C Wing" (has six tines in it) is used for items that are heavy for the D wire whip, like whipping potatoes or icing. The last is the "I" whip is similar to the D wire whip just with less tines. The flat beater is used to mashing or mixing examples are mashed potatoes before they are whipped, cake mixes that do not require whipping, batters and icing. The Dough hook is used for kneading dough examples are pizza dough, bread dough, etc.

The biggest thing when using your mixer is to know its capacity for the material that you are mixing. All though this is one of the bigger machines it still has limits. You should refer to this the following link for the capacity of your machine:
https://my.hobartcorp.com/resourcecenter/ProductDocumentation/F-7701.pdf

There are also a few attachments that can be put on to the No. 12 attachment hub. A few of these are a vegetable slicer-grater and meat grinder.

There should be a small lever on the base in front of and below the bowl. It will move to 2 positions. It sounds like you have it set for the small bowl but are using the large bowl. Press down on the lever and move it to the other side. If I'm right, that should correct the problem.

K45ss mixer works fine except when whipping cream there are small black specs appearing in the bowl that probably have gone unnoticed with darker mixtures. I suspect some type of oil leak


Yes this is probably a oil leak. it can come from two possible location one of which can come from the transmission gasket that goes around the mixers center seem, if this is broken, worn or improperly seated it will need replacement. part number for the transmission gasket is 4162324. another possible location is around the cirrcular mixing gear at the front of the machine. if the seal inside the unit are damaged or worn this can cause oil to leak striaght down into the very food you are preparing. part number for the seals are 3180163. there are 4 of them, and they would require taking apart the whole unit. hope this helps.

Thanks

Mixer motor shut down


Mine did almost the exact same thing one day. I have the Artisian Model, It would do it on any of the lowest speeds. Dont know if this will help you or not but I just ran mine the next day on all the way high with the spash guard on for making whipped cream for about 6 minutes full throttle and for some reason it hasnt went slow and shut itself off since then. Mine is about 7 months old. I called Kitchen Aid but their customer service all of a sudden seems to not know english worth a poo...

Try running yours on full blast for 5 minutes with something simple in the bowl. If its a 250 watt or higher make whipped water out of 2 cups of water and a tablespoon of cornstarch. Run it till you get what looks like whipped cream. Oh yea. Use the Balloon whip. The lubrication in the motor is supposed to last for at least 5 years but I have seen on numerous post's that if you run them on all the way for at least 5 minutes the oil will even out in the motor. Running the mixers at low speed alot will cause the oil inside not to move as freely since the motor doesnt heat up the oil in the gears.

Good luck.
