Guide :Food Mixers : D300 Stand Mixer
To Whom it May Concer: At the school I work we have a Hobart D-300 Mixer. When we mix bread dough it pulls alot of current and trips the breaker. The max current draw on the name plate is 10.1 amps. I have seen the current go over 30 amps during the mixing process. Under no load the mixer pulls 7.8 amps. I dont have any information about this machine on paper and I can only go so far with troubleshooting.
My questions to you are: Is it normal for the mixer to draw 7.8 amps under no load? And is their a manual online I can look at so I can check the oil levels and make sure I do not have a low oil/needs greasing condition.
Thanks for your help and time,
