Breadman TR2200C Doesn't knead

Just bought this on craigslist for $50. Looks brand new. Threw in some ingredients, and started it up. Display and controls looks/works fine. Started the knead cycle. I can hear a moving sound, but nothing is happening in the pan. I stop the cycle, and remove the pan. Start it up again, and the can hear the motor running, but the drive mechanism that turns the paddle isn't moving.

Has anyone opened one of these things up? Is there a belt drive or something that turns the drive mechanism that could have gotten loose? Or a service manual out there? I want my bread! Either from the machine, or the lady who sold it to me!

I have this bread machine. A few months ago after several years of use, this exact problem happened with my machine. I opened up the bottom (easy to do, just keep track of the screws) and found that the belt had slipped off the pulleys. If you read the reviews on Amazon, you'll see that this is a common problem with this machine.

It's pretty easy to put the belt back on, but that may only be a temporary fix. Mine kept hopping off, until it got to the point where I just left the bottom off my machine to make the belt easier to access.

A few things might help. First, put a thin coating of vegetable oil on the belt before putting it back on the pulleys. This was recommended to me, and since I did it, the belt hasn't come off again (about 6 loaves; before that, the belt jumped off nearly every loaf). Even if you're skeptical, try it.

Second, the pulley tension is adjustable. If you loosen the 4 screws around the little pulley, you can move it slightly to increase or decrease the tension. Be careful - if you tighten it too much, you'll stress the motor and it will labor and stall out. Also, too much tension seems to flex the big pulley, making it more likely that the belt will slip off. You may find that the solution is to reduce, not increase, the tension.

Third, someone on Amazon solved the problem by making a cardboard disk that's slightly larger than the big pulley, and arranging this somehow to keep the belt from coming off. You could try this or some other method of blocking the cut-out areas in the edge of the pulley that allow the belt to come off.

On the down side, if the belt is actually broken, you're going to have a tough time replacing it. Parts aren't available from the manufacturer or anywhere else for that matter, except used parts on eBay.

If you can solve the belt problem, I think you'll love the machine. It makes terrific bread, much better than the one other brand I've used.

I put fruit in the fruit & nut dispenser & it did not come into the bread. What am I doing wrong?

Hi, sorry your dispenser appears not to be working. Unless and until you can repair it you can always add fruit and nuts the old fashioned way. Take a look at your manual and find the program you are using. Find how long the 2nd knead cycle lasts. For example lets say your 2nd knead last 20 minutes. Plan on opening the lid of your machine 10 minutes into the 2nd knead. All bread machines recommend add-ins well into the 2nd knead. Just have your ingredients premeasured on a paper plate next to the machine and fold the plate and pour them in halfway into the 2nd knead of the program you chose. At least that will help you get the bread you wanted.

After adding ingredients, plugged in bread maker and selected time. It beeped, but no mixer came on as usual. I unplugged and reset. Still no results. Please advise how to get it to mix and bake.

Some machines have a delay before they start kneading if they detect that the ingredients are not at the right temperature. Try waiting about 10 minutes after you pust start and see if it starts kneading. I have a Breadman machine that warms up for about 5 or 10 minutes and then starts kneading.

Hi, Sounds like the paddle inside the bread pan did not mix the ingredients very well. Take the pan and paddle out of the machine and see if you can turn the paddle freely by hand. Yes is good..if it sticks then the sealed bearing is failing. Next, keep the pan out of the machine and start a kneading cycle. Look through the lid window and see if the motor shaft turns. The belt may have fallen off or is too loose and the paddle won't turn freely under load. The belt, pulleys and motor are inside the base of the machine. Hank

It seems the motor on my Breadman Ultimate 2200C has burned out.

If the motor shaft is not spinning with the bread pan out of the machine it could be the belt has fallen off the pulley, or has snapped. The belt and pulley are inside the base of the machine. Hank

Kneading problem - lop-sided loaves

it is very imporant that you put the ingredients in the right order (water on the bottom, flour floating on top o it, yeast on the flour not touching the wwater). Also the amount of water is crucial.
The bread becomes evenly distributed during rise.
Rise problems might be due to improper kneading which in turn might be due to the pan jumping. Check that the pan is not jumping during kneading.
