Re: Paddles stick to posts & tear big chunks out of bread
Try some hard crisco on the post before putting in the paddle or any ingredients. Your paddle SHOULD COME OUT with your loaf. Then when it has cooled off some, you turn it on it's side and surgically remove the ****** from the bottom center. Try to remember the shape(of the paddle) you need to excise for your loaf. Have you ever noticed that most kitchen machines are designed by men?? As with floors that are horrible to try to clean. The big belief is that all companies have test kitchens.. not so. And we my dear must deal with items that do not function as one would logically think they should. I hope you give the company an earfull of customer feedback. Mine is an OSTER. Five 1/2 years and doing fine even with whole wheat, and desert pastry.

You might need a new paddle if cleaning yours doesn't work. It needs its release coating. You could also try making sure the paddle moves smoothly on its shaft. If it hangs up when you pull the loaf out, it'll tear a big hole in the bottom of the loaf. Replacement paddles for most makes can be found on eBay. They run around $15, though, so I'd try cleaning and lubrication with vegetable oil first. Good luck.
Your machine has a lubricating grease that is under the small gasket or washer at the bottom of the pan under each paddle. After a lot of use the little gasket can fail and the grease can get get past the gasket and into your bread. The best thing to do is either replace your pan with what is called a "pan assembly which will include everything but the paddles. If you decide to do that be sure to keep your paddles. The other choice of course is to replace your machine which might not be a bad idea if your machine has been used a lot because you would have a new pan assembly but older parts may begin to fail such as the drive belt. Bread machines aren't all that expensive anymore so you may want to go ahead and replace especially since you just use your machine for making dough.
unfortunately all bread machines leave the hole in the bottom where the paddle is. some machines leave a bigger hole than others, with the exception of the cuisinart cbk-200 which allows you to remove the dough, then remove the paddle, then reshape and replace the dough....One thing you can try to have a softer, lighter crust is to replace the water in your recipe with the same amount of milk. If the hole in the big hole in the loaf really bothers you I suppose you could remove the dough exactly at the end of the final knead, remove the paddle and replace the dough in the pan...I've never done it but I've certainly considered it! best wishes and happy breadmaking...
Hi, Take the paddle out of the machine at the end of the last kneading cycle and before final rise.. Use pause or take pan out of machine to remove paddle. OR... spray the shaft with a small amount of olive oil. This should allow paddle to come out when bread is done. You will have to fish the paddle out of the bread in this step. Hank
Hi, The situation you speak of is common for ALL bread machines. You want the paddle to come off freely so it won't get stuck on the motor spindle. You can take the paddle out of the machine after the final kneading cycle and before final rise. This will prevent a big hole in the bread. If your machine does not have a pause cycle, take the pan out of the machine to remove the paddle to be safe. Hank
Hi, Take the pan out of the machine and see if you can turn the paddles by hand. If yes that's good...if no then paddles are sticking. Keep pan out of machine and start a kneading cycle. Look through the lid window and see if the motor shafts are turning. If no...then the belts fell off or are loose. If everything is fine then maybe it's the electronic panel. Hank
I have the B2300 bread machine as well and I have encountered the same problem as you. So, I came up with the idea of removing the paddles right after the machine has stopped mixing the dough. Whenever I bake bread at home, I tend to follow the above mentioned solution and it made my life much easier.
this is the second rise period. it is ok, and at this time if you like, you can gently move the dough aside, and remove the paddles. Just remember to put a little oil on the exposed stem. This way, you can have bread without the huge holes from the paddles.
