Bread pan removal:

I am assuming you have the type of bread machine that has the little metal spring clips inside the oven compartment. Before inserting the pan always check on the bottom of the pan (underneath) to see how the impeller "T" is aligned and turn it with your fingers or turne the paddle with your fingers so the "T" will fit into the gaps of the impeller in the bottom of the oven. Once you have aligned them then place the pan in the oven and "pop" push the pan in place so the spring clips grab the matching clips on the sides of the pan. Also look to see if your pan has the word "front" stenciled in the lip edge of the pan. If so, be sure that edge is towards the front of the machine. If your pan still won't pop into place when you push down your spring clips may need to be gently pulled out because they can become "slack" over time. Take the pan out and reach in and pull each spring clip up until you start to feel it bend a little and bend them out. Pop your pan into place and if the clips don's start to grab your pan repeat the process of bending the clips out and repeat that until they do. Summary:

1) make sure if your pan is marked "front" that it is aligned properly

2) make sure the paddle and the T underneath the pan aren't in conflict with the matching drive impeller in the bottom of the oven. Just turn the paddle so they are opposite of each other and can engage

3) Restore the "springiness" to your clips by bending them out with your fingers. Be careful though because the spring edges are fine edges so get underneath them when you pull up

How do I change the oil pan gasket?

Whether it's an engine oil pan (called the 'sump'' in the UK) or a transmission oil pan the principle is the same on all vehicles.
1. Drain the oil

2. Remove the bolts holding the sump/pan in place:
change-oil-pan-gasket-mcgwfbeeztshkxy1nyom2hsg-4-1.jpg The oil drain plug, though depending on your vehicle it may look different:
change-oil-pan-gasket-mcgwfbeeztshkxy1nyom2hsg-4-3.jpg change-oil-pan-gasket-mcgwfbeeztshkxy1nyom2hsg-4-6.jpgNew gasket held in place with sealant
Use a blunt screwdriver -if needed - and prise the oil pan free. remove all traces of the old gasket from the mating surfaces.

Use a smear of sealant to hold the new gasket in the correct position on the pan - this will hold it in place when you refit the pan.

Push the pan into position and put in a front bolt finger-tight. Then put in a rear bolt finger-tight.

Putting in the bolts finger-tight allows you to gently 'move' the pan if needed to put the bolts in one at a time.

When all bolts are in, tighten them with a wrench/socket. Then check them all again for tightness.

It isn't actually a big job .. more 'messy' because of the oil.

Is there a place to connect a hose so dehumidifier will drain into a basement drain?

You don't say what manufacturer or model unit you have, but many models have places at the bottom of the collection pan for a hose connection. Just remember that the basement drain must be lower than the top of the drain pan or the pan will not drain out of the hose.

I don't see a place to hook up a hose for continuous run into the sub-pump pit. I removed the drip pan and still don't see a place to hook up a hose.

On some models a separate extension tube gets installed through a knockout on the back panel. The extension tube fits into the part where the condensate drips into the pan; the opposite end has threads for a hose. This tube (if applicable to your model) should have been in the box with the unit. There isn't any information on the brand or model you have. Looking at the instructions for your model should also provide an answer. If you no longer have the instructions, turn the unit on and try to locate where the condensate drips into the pan. The hose would have to connect from there.

Pan keeps popping up from base during kneading. tr444

According to the manual I have on your machine your pan is held in place by the littile metal clips on 2 sides. Are you sure that when you push your pan down into place that it "clicks". If not it may be popping up because the clips aren't engaged. Be sure you push it down well until it snaps in place. If it still pops up you may want to use some kind of tool to push the clips a little further out so they grab your pan better. Please comment back if one or both of these suggestions solves your problem. Please give me rating/ranking/ testimonial etc. if it does.....thanks djthorn55!

My morphy richards baking pan wont stay in place. It clicks into place. I switch it on, then the pan pops back out again.

You may want to try bending those clips out a little so they hold the pan in better. Are they bendable? Be careful you don't over do it. Please me know if this works. If yes, please give a testimonial. Feedback is everything! Thanks

It came with a white tray and I don't know what it's for.

That would be the Chill / Thaw try. (it allows air to circulate under the pan, so you get the fastest chilling, of say 6 cans, or thawing of frozen items safely in your CustomCool pan) It is for use in the ExpressThaw or ExpressChill mode.
The CustomCool uses a system of air dampers, a fan, a temperature thermistor and a heater. The pan is tightly sealed to prevent temperature fluctuations in the rest of the refrigerator. The controls for this pan are located at the top of the refrigerator with the temperature controls, or on the dispenser with the temperature controls (depending on model).
Empty the pan. Place the Chill / Thaw tray in the pan. Place the items on the tray and close the pan completely. On LCD display models: access by: Home>Options>Refrigerator Options>CustomCool Pan. On non-LCD models: Select the ExpressThaw, ExpressChill, or SelectTemp pad. The display and Set light will come on. Tap the pad until the light appears next to the desired setting.

Bread pan jumps off of its fastener clips.

I have the answer to the TR2500BC pan popping off the base!! My husband and I made a loaf for testing the jump off. Ah HAH! I set the pan in, ok. felt it was down all the way. When it started to knead the ball and stop to popped off. We looked at the side hook on top. ok. It popped off again. It was when my husband made sure the two tabs on the under side of the pan was in the opposit direction of the two buds in the base. at that point you MUST set the pan down with force until you get that distinctive click, click. Rock the pan front to back a bit as you push down. It has worked every time since I started that process. I make two loafs of bread a week with no problem of it hopping off. ENJOY.
