Westbend breadmaker. Can't get the pan to lock in

I have tried to turn the paddle, turn the part on the bottom of the machine.  It goes down into the circle area but won't turn to lock.  I don't know if it is the pan or the machine.  The unit is probably 10 years old and is used a lot.  I don't know if it is worthwhile to try to troubleshoot it.  
thanks!

I just tried this, its not a great solution, but a solution none the less. I lined the locking mechanism with parchment paper. With a little bit of trial and error I figured out the right amount to add enough stiffness so the bread pan does not flop about. Tin foil might work work as well. This may create a fire hazard so you will have to keep an eye out for the bread maker.

Cbk 200 does not preheat/clicking sound/doesn't knead


You may have a broken belt (not uncommon) Unplug your machine, remove the pand and paddle and turn the machine on its side. See if you can remove the metal panel on the bottom of the machine. Once you do that you will see if your belt is broken or has slipped off. It it is either of these you can reach me at breadmachineshelp.com I can then tell you how to get your belt back on or replace it.

When do you take out knead bar


The knead bar or paddle is taken out after the bread is finished baking and the loaf is removed from the bread pan.

The motor will turn on it's own but will not turn the kneading blade in the pan when that is put into the breadmaker. makes a soft "thunk" as it tries to turn it. It's like the gizmo at the...


Hi, First, the take empty pan and paddle out of the machine. Try to spin the paddle by hand. If it spins freely that's great. If it does not spin freely the sealed bearing that allows the paddle to spin has failed and you will need a new bread pan. If everything is okay, keep the pan out of the machine and go to a kneading cycle. Look through the window to see if the motor shaft is turning. If not then the belt is loose or fell off. Hank

The machine gets warm but the paddle doesn't turn.


Hi, The paddle should turn freely by hand with the bread pan out of the machine. Make sure the pan is inserted in the machine correctly. If the motor shaft turns but the paddle doesn't then the sealed bearing that the paddle rotates on has failed and is frozen so the paddle does not turn.. You may need a new bread pan. Hank

I have the Black and Decker All-In-One Deluxe Automatic Breadmaker B1600 Series and it's worked well for years. Today I put the ingredients for a loaf in the bread pan and when it started to mix the paddle...


There is a sealed bearing in the bottom of the bread pan. The paddle sits on the sealed bearing shaft. Over time the bearing begins to fail and the paddle does not turn freely or it may even freeze up. If you are sure everything is installed correctly this may be the problem. See if the paddle moves freely by hand and is not really loose. Sealed bearings can not be replaced. Eventually you will need a new bread pan. Sorry Hank

The axis in the bottom of the pan, which holds the paddle, won't turn. The axis in bottom of the machine does seem to rotate when I try it without the pan. Is there a way to fix the pan?


Hi,
Try putting warm water in the pan and let it soak. Try it a few times. If you can't turn the paddle by hand, then the sealed bearing that turns the paddle is frozen and can't be repaired. Sorry Hank

The paddle on my panasonic breadmaker has stopped turning. Without the pan the mechanism revolves but once the pan is in place the paddle does not move.


Hi,
If you take the pan out of the machine and can't turn the paddle freely by hand, then the sealed bearing is frozen. You can try putting warm water in the pan and soaking it. After a few tries if it does not free up then the sealed bearing is broken and bread pan needs to be replaced. Good Luck..Hank

I have a brand new West Bend "just for dinner" bread maker. In the bottom, the two-pronged part which the motor is supposed to turn, doesn't turn. Thus, the kneading spatula doesn't turn. The heating unit...


Hi,
If the machine is brand new, then take it back for an exchange. If that's not possible, then call West Bend for a replacement. If that's not possible then let's try to solve this problem in a few steps. 1) Take pan out of machine and see if you can spin the paddle on the shaft. If yes...next step..if no then bearing in bread pan is stuck. 2) Put bread pan in machine and lock in place. Start a kneading cycle. Look through plastic lid to see if paddle turns. If no step 3. 3) Take pan out of machine and start kneading cycle. If motor shaft does not turn, then the belt fell off the pulley in the machine or belt is broken, or the motor is bad
