Question about Black & Decker B2300 Bread Machine
This is the third time that I am trying to back a loaf of bread and my machine is not kneading or baking. Any help, my machine is only about three months old.
Hi Liz, don't throw it out yet. You may just have a broken or thrown drive belt. Most bread machines have a removable panel on the bottom of the machine. With your machine unplugge turn it on its side and using a screwdriver remove the bottom panel. You will see a belt running between a large pulley and a small one. Let me know if the belt that runs between the 2 pulleys has slipped off or is broken. We'll go from there. Bye for now!

As I read the manual, under the Care & Cleaning section,
"2. If the kneading blades remain in the bread pan, grip the kneading blade and
pull straight up to remove......"
Based on the diagrams and instructions, I don't think you're supposed to pull the blades before baking...why do you want them out? Cosmetics?
If I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.
Thanks in-advance for using Fixya.com,

Yup check those belts. Also make sure the paddle spins freely when you spin it by hand. If the paddle does not spin freely, then the sealed bearing may be going bad. Hank

Hi, Take the pan out of tha machine and see if the paddle spins freely by hand. If yes that's great...if no then the sealed bearing might be sticking and starting to fail. Next check the tension on the belts. The motor and belts are located in the base of the machine. Be sure to unplug machine and ask someone to help you if you are not mechanically inclined. Hank
