Question about Breadman TR2200C Ultimate Bread Maker

1 Answer

Kneading I've used my Breadman a few times, but the last 2 it hasn't been kneading into a ball. I'll open it in Knead phase 2 to mix in what it didn't get, and it won't have anything patched together. But the paddle is fine and I added the ingredients just as it said. Any suggestions?

Re: Kneading

Check your measurements.
Sounds like operator error.

SOURCE: My bread maker doesn't knead correctly.

I had the same problem with my Breadman TR845. I made the first loaf O.K. but the knead paddle would not turn much when it had flour in the bread pan. I took it apart and discovered that the timing belt had slipped off the black plastic gear attached to the shaft of the motor. The belt was still around the shaft of the motor which allowed it to move the paddle a little. I needed a small spacer washer that would keep the black plastic gear from sliding on the shaft and allowing the belt to slip off. There is lip only on one side of the plastic gear so if it moves the belt can slip off. I created a spacing washer from the cap on a tube of toothpaste. I cut the toothpaste cap in half and had to use a metal file to get it the right size. It needed to be 1/4 inch tall and 3/4 inch in diameter. I cut the space so that it could slip over the shaft. After putting it all back together everything works fine. And the toothpaste tube was almost empty anyway.

P.S. There are lots of screws that hold it together and the belt and gears are at the bottom of the Breadman and you have to take the whole thing apart to get to the bottom. I was able to leave all the wires attached so that putting it back together went quickly compared to the work of taking it apart.

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.

I was given a regal bread maker model k6751 is the kneading blade supposed to turn the whole time?

No, the blade only turns when the machine is in a mix or knead cycle. There are many minutes where the blade does nothing. This is when your machine is allowing the dough to rise or at the end during the bake phase.

Kneading blade comes off during breadmaking process

Yes, if the blade come off then your bread is not going to mix and knead properly. The blades on all makers are designed to slip on and off though so you can remove them for cleaning etc. Be sure you are pushing the paddle all the way on. If it still comes off when mixing that would be very odd as the weight of the dough ball itself helps keep paddles on. I have owned dozens of machines by different manufacturers and never had a paddle come off in process.

HI, I use the dough cycle and it takes 1 hour 20 minutes, but it actually only kneads the first 10 minutes and then here and there a minute for all together about 15 minutes of kneading. Is my machine not...

It sounds like everything is OK...machines knead a while,,,,rest a long time....knead a little rest along time etc......that resting allows the dough to rise....

2 years old B&D bread machine. Motor doesn't turn. Didn't wait long enough to see if the heater is working.

Hi keneddy,
Always wait a few minutes to see if your bread machine start to mix after a few minutes. If the oven chamber is cold it will gently warm up a few minutes before it starts to knead/mix. This can sometimes take anywhere from 4-5 minutes and longer. If it doesn't start kneading after about 20 minutes then you do have a problem. Whole wheat programs often warm up before any kneading begins. All you will hear is a faint clicking noise while the heat comes on.

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.

I have a toastmaster Bread Box bread machine...I am making French bread...the banging noise was so loud I stopped it fearing the machine was it ? If not should I continue the kneading/baking...

Unless the sound is mechanical like metal on metal etc. what you may be hearing is the sound of the dough ball being knocked around and kneaded. Sometimes that gets pretty loud. While it is kneading go ahead and open the top and see if you think the dough ball is making the noise. If it seems to be coming from somwhere else then you may have a more serious problem. Is this a new noise or it this the first time you have used the machine?

Used the breadman successfully 6 days ago. today; nothing happens. Window states "knead" but nothing happens at all.

Are you making a different kind of bread than you did the first time?. If so some machine programs have a delay before they start kneading such as the whole wheat cycle. Also some machines delay the kneading process while they warm up the ingredients. If it is colder where you live now than itw was 6 days ago that could be a factor.

Bread pan pops out during the kneading 2 cycle

Me too! I have to bend the two metal pieces on the sides out before every use - they are pretty flexible, you won't break them. Just bend out and they hold the pan in for a use or two. Not an elegant solution, I admit, but it works.
