Question about Black & Decker B2300 Bread Machine

1 Answer

My bread maker stopped working, it does not knead, but the timer seems to work

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.

    When you choose the Basic program on your machine with nothing in it,  and let it go through all the cycles.  (Usually takes about 3-4 hours) on most machines.  Does it get hot at the end ( the last hour or so) as though it wants to bake a loaf of bread?

    Daryl, I let it run through the whole cycle and everything works except the blades don't move. At this point I am ready to throw it out.

    I thank you for the help but the maker is toast and being recycled. I now have a cuisinart and much happier. Thanks for you help though.

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!

    Opened the bottom and the drive belt is good. What now if it will not even knead a 1 lb. loaf?

SOURCE: Kneading blade cooks into the loaf

Hi Jessica,

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,

SOURCE: loaf of bread...clumpy mess

Hi...
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

SOURCE: my machine seems to labor in the kneading cycle,

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

How can I get the machine to start the bread making process from the beginning. It is currently stuck on knead.


Do you have your owners manual and have you baked bread in your machine before? Just want to be sure that you know the stages that the machine goes through. The first mixing and kneading stage in a tr444 will take up to 15 minutes before it stops on its own. It will then let the dough rest for about 1/2 hour before the 2nd knead begins. It takes almost 4 hours for your machine to go through all the stages before your baked bread is finished.

How long should bread knead in the machine


Depends on the texture you are looking for. Typically a machine has a pre-set program that kneads a certain time and shuts off. If you are using a recipe that is a bread that you make by hand, you could use the machine to knead the bread and rise the first time, then punch it down, knead by hand and form a loaf and bake in oven.

Paddles end up inside the loaf when done baking !!!! why do they come off!!!? very annoying.. ruins the loaf trying to get them out ......think the machine is only good for mixing ...rather bake in oven in...


Hi,
This is common in all bread making machines. You can try taking the paddle out of the machine after the last kneading cycle and before final rise. (take bread pan out of machine to do this). Hank

Lately, every time I bake bread (using same recipe that always worked well in the past) I end up with a loaf that is collapsed in the middle with top half either missing or looking half baked. The machine...


Hi,
It could be that the belt is worn and not kneading the dough properly. Either that or the paddle is sticking (see if you can spin it by hand), or the heating element is not getting hot enough. Hank

Kneading paddle is baked into bottom of bread loaf. Is this normal?


Yes, this is a common occurrence.
Nothing to worry about unless you chow down and forget to remove the paddle(s). :)

Since the paddle(s) stays in the pan after the kneading and through the baking process. The bread can trap the paddle(s) as the batter cooks.

We have gone through 3 different bread machines and over time all eventually did this. A little wear on the spindle will loosen the paddle(s).
Hope this helps!

Loaf falls in the middle and outside is hard


Falling in middle is usually due to innacurate measuring of liquids. Try again using the instruction manual's recipe and very carefully measuring. Be sure to adjust the liquid if you use honey or other liquid not called for in the recipe.
