Add enough near boiling water to cover bottom. Wait 5 minutes. Drain off water. Add oil that you would use to make next loaf of bread. Rotate paddle back and forth to loosen up. I always add oil first to "lube" paddle shaft.
soak the paddle in soapy water overnight with enough water to keep the paddle submerged. The next day wiggle it back and forth while holding the litte ears underneathe the pan. Move it up and down too. If it still doesn't break free go to you tube and type "how to remove a stuck bread machine paddle" have your husband do that move, but don' use more than one jug of water because the TBR15 pan is thin and can bend. Be sure your husband uses hot pads to hold the pan edges so he doesn't hurt his fingers. If that method doesn't work you will have to live with a stuck paddle or order a new pan assembly and paddle and then always remember to remove to soak your paddle after baking and remove it from the stem, clean, and store.

If the spindle is turning and the paddle is not then your paddle is worn out and probable slipping on the spindle. If the spindle isn't turning then your problem is underneath the pan or inside the drive and your paddle may be fine.
Hi, Take the bread pan and paddle out of the machine and see if the paddle spins freely by hand. If it sticks then the sealed bearing is failing. If everything is good here, check the tension on the belt pulley. The belt may be too loose to spin the paddle freely under load. Belt and motor is inside the base of the machine. Good Luck..Hank
Either contact the manufacturer, or remold the interior of the paddle hole yourself. How? Using something like JB WELD. Place a peice of plastic wrap over the metal spindle, spreading it not only around the spindle but 2-3 inches outward like a skirt. Mix the epoxy (I recommend JB Weld) and place a small blob over the spindle. Pack the hole in the paddle with it. Now, place the paddle back over the spindle and let the epoxy set-up overnight.
Because of the plastic, the paddle should lift up off the spindle. Using a carving tool, a hand grinder, or sandpaper and elbow grease, remove the excess hardened epoxy. The interior of the spindle hole should be good-as-new.
OR, find A STORE that sells breadmakers, and find a paddle that will work on yours, and 'borrow it' (a your own risk, shoplifting is a crime).
You can drill and tap the paddle, where it faces the flat on the shaft, and install a small setscrew. Something like a 10-32. Make sure you use a nylok screw or use a thread locking compound (available @ auto parts stores) to prevent the screw from working loose and getting into your bread! Just tighten the screw enough for a snug fit so that it can be removed for cleaning.
