Question about Breadman TR555LC Bread Maker

1 Answer

The spindle that holds the paddle won't turn. It's stuck tight.

I took the bread out of the bread maker. I pulled the paddle out. Then I tested the spindle post that holds the paddle to see if it would turn. It won't budge, not even with the turning handle on the bottom of the machine. What should I do? Put hot water in the bucket and soak it?

    I bake bread in the Breadman breadmaker. The bread is good and rises nicely. After I shake the bread out on to a cooling rack, I take out the paddle from the bread, soak it a little bit in the bread pan, and then take it out, empty the water out and dry everything off. Before putting the paddle back into the bread pan, I check to see if the shaft is free to move. When it isn't, I try hard to turn it, using the handle on the bottom of the bread pan while holding the bread pan close with the other hand. Usually, the shaft has loosened up and is able to be turned after a little twisting of the turning handle underneath the bread pan. But this last time, the little handle absolutely will not turn. What shall I do? Soak the inside of the bread pan in soapy hot water overnight? Take out the little c-clip, pull the shaft out, oil it, purchase another c-clip and put it together again? I hope this added to the information needed to get an answer. Clara Mae

It may be hard to turn by hand but does it turn when the machine is
turned on? If so it is OK even if you can't turn it by hand

SOURCE: Bread sticks to pan

May be that the coating on the pan is just wearing off. Had the same problem several years ago and it was just that the poor old machine was over used and the simplest solution was to buy a new pan. That machine went though 2 of them before it died its self.

SOURCE: The shaft that turns the paddle

There is a small clip on the bottom it speads to loosen it off the shaft if this is missing a clip can be obtained at a auto parts store and then you will be back in business.
Put the shaft out and clean and oil it with olive oil, peanut oil or wok oil.
Then put it back together.

SOURCE: removing finished bread from pan

Before the baking cycle begins,remove the bread pan ,shake out the batter onto a piece of waxed paper,remove the paddle from the bread pan,place batter back into the pan,close lid.This way you only have a small hole in the finished loaf. I prefer the 1.5 pound rye bread,and set a kitchen timer for 2 hours 5 minutes-when the "shape" cycle finishes,we remove the paddle.
This is listed in my manual on page 76,item # 7;heading is METHOD.
Front of the manual lists the times for the cycles,just add them up.
(When you dump the batter back into the pan,try to pat down the rough edges,it looks better).

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.

Can't remove kneading blade


If you baked bread in it and cannot get the paddle free, put enough water in the pan to cover the paddle and let it set for 5 or 10 min to soak the bread crust that formed between the shaft and the paddle. Then take a hold of the shaft on bottom of pan with hand or pliers to hold it still and try to work the paddle clockwise with other hand until it becomes unwedged from shaft. Sometimes it gets wedged on shaft pretty tight due to the beating against dough ball and cooked bread holds it tightly wedged.

How do I get the kneeding blade out of the bread machine?


soak the paddle in soapy water overnight with enough water to keep the paddle submerged. The next day wiggle it back and forth while holding the litte ears underneathe the pan. Move it up and down too. If it still doesn't break free go to you tube and type "how to remove a stuck bread machine paddle" have your husband do that move, but don' use more than one jug of water because the TBR15 pan is thin and can bend. Be sure your husband uses hot pads to hold the pan edges so he doesn't hurt his fingers. If that method doesn't work you will have to live with a stuck paddle or order a new pan assembly and paddle and then always remember to remove to soak your paddle after baking and remove it from
the stem, clean, and store. Daryl,,, from breadmachineshelp.com

I can't remove the paddle from the pan to clean . Is there a tool to pull the paddle/blade out ? I can't get a good enough hold of it.


If a paddle is left on a machine after baking, and is stored that way then the paddle can be almost impossible to remove if not impossible. If it is not stuck too badly then the method showed on youtube might work. Go to you tube and type in "How to remove a stuck bread machine paddle" But again if it is badly stuck even that method may not work. Let me know if it works or not.

Pull the pan out and turn the little paddle with your finger. Is the paddle slipping on the spindle? If yes, then your paddle is worn out. If you move the paddle around and it doesn't slip on the spindle then look to see if the ears on the bottom of the pan are turning too when you move the paddle. If yes, then your problem is further down in the machine. You may have a slipping belt. Those are some of the things you can check.

Bread Maker stir paddle does not spin


Either contact the manufacturer, or remold the interior of the paddle hole yourself. How? Using something like JB WELD. Place a peice of plastic wrap over the metal spindle, spreading it not only around the spindle but 2-3 inches outward like a skirt. Mix the epoxy (I recommend JB Weld) and place a small blob over the spindle. Pack the hole in the paddle with it. Now, place the paddle back over the spindle and let the epoxy set-up overnight.
Because of the plastic, the paddle should lift up off the spindle. Using a carving tool, a hand grinder, or sandpaper and elbow grease, remove the excess hardened epoxy. The interior of the spindle hole should be good-as-new.
OR, find A STORE that sells breadmakers, and find a paddle that will work on yours, and 'borrow it' (a your own risk, shoplifting is a crime).

Kneading paddle is baked into bottom of bread loaf. Is this normal?


Yes, this is a common occurrence.
Nothing to worry about unless you chow down and forget to remove the paddle(s). :)

Since the paddle(s) stays in the pan after the kneading and through the baking process. The bread can trap the paddle(s) as the batter cooks.

We have gone through 3 different bread machines and over time all eventually did this. A little wear on the spindle will loosen the paddle(s).
Hope this helps!

Mixing paddle won't turn.


Hi,
The mixing paddle is supposed to turn by means of a lubricated bearing. This bearing is broken or stuck so the blade will not turn.

Try soaking it overnight in soapy water. If that does not work it's time for a replacement pan if you can find one.

Paddle won't turn


Although my Oster breadmaker is older (5811) it had the same problem (frozen paddle) and I just fixed it today. First read this article on maintenance: http://www.breadmachinedigest.com/tips/bread-machine-maintenance.php, then watch this video on disassembling a breadmaker: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ReTBIc3qTT0. The good news is the bottom comes more easily than the video and the workings are easier. If your belt is fine (which mine was since Oster is grooved differently than the video) then First turn the big wheel by hand a few times to "unlock" it's stiffness. Then remove the big wheel and belt. Oil both of the spindles with MACHINE OIL ONLY (like the first article emphasizes)--I used sewing machine oil. Mind you, I did this with my machine upside down to be sure oil ran down the shafts. Then re-assemble. This was a BBBBitch to do until I discovered the spindle on the big wheel is shaped like an elongated D. Once you figure that out, it will drop down easily. I stretched the tight belt back on by fitting it first into the smaller paddle end (to be sure the grooves are in place) then putting it around the big wheel, holding loose part with thumb and turning the wheel until it fell into place--sort of like a tire machine. (see attached picture) Now give it a few more spins by hand (it should spin freely) and replace bottom of machine. Voila. Mine is working perfectly now, and I hope yours will too.

Sounds strange. Usually the paddle has a key (the shape of it is irregular and it fits into the sleeve on the spindle or shaft) Either the shape has worn and it no longer fits or the spindle or shaft is not turning with the motor which could mean that the connection with the armature of the motor is damaged.

You could contact the manufacturers or ask afriend to examine it for you which would need taking it apart.
