5 Feb 2012    REPLACING THE MOTOR GEAR KIT

 

IF YOU LOOK AT THE TWO PHOTOS ABOVE YOU WILL SEE THAT THE GEAR HAS MOVED ABOUT 1/4"
WHAT THIS DOES IN WHEN YOU START YOUR SLICER YOU HEAR A SLAMMING SOUND ALSO WHEN YOU SHUT THE MOTOR DOWN. IT IS CAUSED BY THE MOTOR GEAR KIT (SHOWN BELOW) WEARS OUT THEIR ARE TWO RUBBER BUMPERS IN THE KIT TO ABSORB THE SHOCK WHEN THE MOTOR TURNS ON AND THEY JUST WEAR OUT AS WHAT HAS HAPPENED ABOVE
UNSCREW THE TOP NU AND PUT THE GEAR KIT ON AS I HAVE IT LAID OUT TIGHTEN UP THE NUT JUST LET A QUARTER TURN BEFORE IT IS SNUGGED DOWN TIGHT IT DOES NEED A SMALL AMOUNT OF SLACK IN IT AND 90% OF THE TIME IT WILL STOP THE SLAMMING SOUND WHEN YOU TURN ON
& OFF YOUR MACHINE

HERE IS A PHOTO OF THE MOTOR GEAR KIT

4 Feb 2012    Removing a Hobart Slicer motor

 

First take off the back motor guard (two small screws)
Second the four small nuts 11/32" must be removed and the motor bracket #4 removed
their is the back bearing of the armature in the bracket it may be stuck just move it side to side until it loosens up

if you have a white "v" start switch disconnect it from the capacitor
you may have to take out the knife bearing unit

that in-tails removing the blade and removing the four screws underneath the blade pull the bearing unit out

While you have the knife bearing unit out see how much oil is in the cavity if their is oil touching the bottom of the gear

when you pull out the armature you may want to put some paper towels in the whole were the armature comes out because

This Oil is not friendly very thick and hard to clean up.

also on the armature if you have a hard time pulling it out put two screwdrivers on opposite sides of the back bearing and give the screwdriver a little nudge it should come right have the towels read

now for the hard part.

you have four post sticking out they have four screws holding a retainer for the stator

you need to remove the screws and take the clips out

The stator may come out now just reach in to the back of the stator and see if it comes out

that is if it was a perfect world

page two on the removal is to put some heat on the four columns that the stator rest on usually at 3,6,9,and 12 o'clock

and add a little liquid wrench type material. now again if that does not work let me know and I will try and go one more step

I hope this help

4 Feb 2012    Aligning the Gauge Plate

 

How should the gauge plate be adjusted to the blade? The instruction manual
is no help, simply stating this adjustment should by a Hobart Technician.

Thanks
Devin

 

Well it takes some patience

but you need to unloosen the two 9/16" bolts holding the gauge plate now slide it close to the blade
keeping it around a 1/16" from the blade.

Now tighten up both of the bolts do not over tighten one with out the other being fairley tight you will see what happens when the bolts get up th the last turn.

if you can not get the gauge plate even with the blade you may have to use a shimm

under the carriage this may be were patience will help.

When you think you have it figured out it gets out of line more then before

Just do it in reverse of what you think will work

Have fun

4 Feb 2012    HOW TO REPAIR THE HOBART INDEXING SYSTEM

Hello

The indexing knob being tight will take a little work

first of all you will need to dismantle the indexing assy

I would start by sliding the top rail away from the indexing plate and spring

now try and remove the 9/16" nut on top of the plate

after that is done slide the plate away from the indexing worm gear

now you will have to remove the stud (Number 29 ) that is in the gauge plate support rod

now the fun will begin if you have a small torch place it on the protruding

cylinders that the gauge plate support rods go up and down on and

get a rubber mallet and start to get the whole gauge plate (number 1 ) to come out after

you complete that feat start to clean up the rods and the cylinders that they go up and down in.

Do not use a file just cleaning solution and steel wool if possible.

make sure the rods will slide up and down freely before putting it all back together

if you have some white lithium grease that is a big help.

Now stop using veg oil or any kind of oil except mineral oil on the rods along with the slide rods

I have included a parts list for you so you can check out the indexing section and get familiar with all this confusing dialog I have just given you

4 Feb 2012    HOW TO CLEAN THE SLIDE BARS ON YOUR HOBART SLICER

 

CLEANING SLIDE BARS INFORMATION

Take the slicer turn it over take off the carriage first now you either have either four bolts holding on the two slide bars or the slide bars have to come out the back of the slicer if that is the case you will have a retainer clip next to the back of the slicer fiting into the slide bar push them up with a screwdriver now lets get the slide bars

You are going to have to take the carriage tray holder off that is held on with a 3/4" bolt

now if you have the style with the four bolts disreguard this part try moving your bars back and forth if you can put a little heat on the area by the back of the slicer where the slide bars slid out and find a way to get the bars out when you have the bars moving

You will need to free up the carriage slide assy a little heat helps if you have Blaster or any kind of penitrating oils use them liberely

>clean off the bars real real good take a brush to the bushing inside the carriage slide clean them up good now be careful that you do not loose the two slide bushing on the top of the carriage slide that runs along the top slide bar

Let me know if you need any more help
