I have a Hobart HL 600 mixer. I cannot get the mixer to turn

Customer Question

I have a Hobart HL 600 mixer. I cannot get the mixer to turn on. I have verified that there is power to the machine by removing the cover and testing for line voltage.
JA: Have you tried power cycling the appliance -- unplugging it and leaving it off for a few hours?
Customer: Yes. It is hard wired to a breaker that we power down every evening at the restaurant and is left off for 12 hours every night
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Yes I have an electrical background
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: That's about it. I have 2 other Hobart mixwers but they are older models and they work as they should Are you familiar with the HL600 model?

Check the cage lock switch and bowl lock switch often one burns out of breaks causing that issue, let me know what you find.
