Question about Welbilt ABM3500 Bread Maker
The spindle that turns the kneeding paddle came out--appears that the ball-bearings or whatever held it in disintegrated with a lot of use. The machine is over 6 years old--used on average of at least once or twice a week. Can this be fixed? Replaced? Thanks, y'all!
If you repair yourself, it would be helpful for direction/help to take spindles apart as they have rings holding them on. I very much appreciated knowing it can be repaired!!

Take the breadmaker to any decent machine shop and show them the problem bearing - these bearings are standard and they will be able to find the right type and size to fit. Actually replacing the bearing is usually pretty easy, although sometimes heat and/or cold etc may need to be applied to get the old one off or new one on. Get them to check there is not also a rubber seal or similar that needs replacing too, as often there will be. Definitely can be fixed if all else is working fine. A new bearing shouldn't be expensive, $5-$20 would be about right and probably it's at the cheaper end of that. If it turns out that the bearing is a special one that they cannot get hold of, see if you can post back with a picture and some measurements, and any writing that is on the side of the bearing itself - hopefully we can source one easily enough online. Hope this helps :)
