At one point early in the mixing cycle the blades stopped moving and there was suddenly a strong smoke smell and visible smoke coming from the breadmaker. I had followed all the receipe to the letter, so the unit was not overloaded. I immediately bought another unit and now wonder if the problem unit is reparable.

Ok, it's a serger. Wondered why a sewing machine would be cutting unless it had the cut-n-sew accessory.
Most likely the blades are damaged or malfunctioning. Is the blade still moving when it is stitching? Is it just chomping away at the fabric but not cutting? If so, either or both blades need to be replaced. Consult your owner's manual. Usually only one blade can be installed without any technical knowledge. You can probably order the replacement blade and install it yourself. However, the other usually needs to be replaced by a knowledgeable technician because it requires some precision.
Has the blade stopped moving at all? If so, how long has it been since a thorough cleaning and oiling? Take it for service.
Hi Anon, there is a strong possibility that you have burnt the motor out. Before use you said yourself that you should have oiled it. Try and do this now but be CAREFUL and dont be surprised if it doesn't work
Did the smoking stop when you disengaged the blades? If so it is most likely your belt that is smoking. Make sure all the blades turn freely by hand to ensure you have not hit anything that may have bent a shaft on one of the blades. If one of the shafts is bent and wont turn FREELY, the belt driving the blades would slip and start smoking as it tried to turn them.
Have you physically moved each blade by hand (with the machine shut-off),spark plug disconnected to see if both or all of the cutting blades move freely if there is any binding you probably have a bad blade spindle bearing . If those move o.k. then you're going to want to check the pulleys on top of the deck, one of these which do not go to the blades may possibly have a bad bearing and is not moving freely causing the belt to be burning up.
Your blades are stuck together.
Had the same problem: when I turn on the trimmer, the motor would hum but the blades won't move. What I did: 1. Sprayed a ton of wd40 between the blades 2. Took a screwdriver and kinda wedged it between the blades to get them unstuck. Also removed some guck between the blades. And it worked!
1. Open Hood.
2. Remove wiper arms by removing cap nuts. they are a tight fit . there is a puller for this.
3 Remove cowel cover . once cover is off you will see the wiper motor and transmission assy. Possibly a snap joint wore out oa nut holding motor drive arm in place loosened up.
Most likely what you did was burn one or more spots on the belt. When the blades and belt stop turning, like in tall grass, the engine doesn't stop and will burn flat spots on the belt at the engine pulley. Every time the flat spot hits a pulley, it will jump and can set up a bad vibration. Run your hand around the sides of the belt or take it off and you will feel or see the thin spot(s) on it. Replace belt.
