Question about Black & Decker B2000 Bread Maker

4 Answers

I have a problem with uneven shaped loaves

My Black & Decker B2300 breadmaker has two paddles, and when the bread is finished kneading, the dough often ends up all on one side of the pan. As a result, when baking is finished, the loaf is often unevenly risen and winds up quite misshapen, all the way over to one end or the other of the pan, and not evenly distributed. How can I make sure the loaf rises in the middle of the pan?

    I've made three loaves now. All are like this. I'm using a wheat bread recipe - and adding cinnamon and raisins. I've made the bread several times w/o the raisins and it's been great. I've made it w/ cinnamon and raisins a thousand times w/ my old breadmaker (only one paddle) and no problems. I've wasted a ton of ingredients on this one now!!!!!!!

    I do believe I've had the paddles both facing out, but if that's the way to do it, why not say so in the manual. The manual I found pretty useless.

    No machine used. I mix, knead, form the loaves, and bake all by hand

I have a problem with my Black%& Decker b2300. One of my kneading blades will not go down all the way.

More water made the dough softer and fixed the problem for me.

The paddles fit two ways, so what you must do is have them facing opposite ways, then they fight with each other and elongate the loaf

Re Black & Decker Bread Maker: Most of the time the paddles remains stuck in the pan and the bread sticks to the paddles. As a result, loaves usually have large chunks torn out of them. There are...

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

Kneading paddles dont snap into the spindles .

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

Loaf of bread...clumpy mess

Yup check those belts. Also make sure the paddle spins freely when you spin it by hand. If the paddle does not spin freely, then the sealed bearing may be going bad. Hank

Model No. B2300 - the padels stay in the bread after it is finished baking- is there any way to prevent this? thanks - Chris

Hi Chris,
You can take the paddle out of the machine after the final kneading cycle and before the final rise cycle. Take the whole pan out of the machine to do this to be safe, or use a pause button if you have one. Hank

The machine does not rotate, I mean it does not mix the dough, the sound is on of rotating but it doesnt move on.

Take the bread pan and paddle out of the machine and see it you can spin the paddle freely by hand. If no, then the sealed bearing is frozen or broken. If yes keep the pan out of the machine and start a kneading cycle. Look through the lid window and see if the motor shaft is spinning. If no then the belt fell off or snapped, or the motor is broken.

Keeading blades

I had the same problem. I find the loaves to be a much better size if I just use program setting 8 - Dough then put the dough in 2 regular bread pans or on cookie sheets (bagetts), let them have a second rising and finish them in the convection oven at 350 F for 21 minutes.

Removing paddles before bake cycle

Rather than pulling out the paddles , pull out the dough and bake it in regular bread pans in your oven.

Paddle stuck inside bread

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.

Bread Machine B2300

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.
