Re: oster model# 5839 bushing for drive shaft
If you will look under Oster model #5839 on the internet it will lead you to sites where you can probably purchase your bushing. Also if you can take it off there may be a place in your city like we have here in San Antonio Texas that can make or get the bushing for you. If you have any problems getting one e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will help you locate one locally.

I maintain a database of bread machine manuals. I have checked my files and I do have an electronic copy of your bread machine manual. I charge a small fee for the work that goes into finding, scanning, creating, maintaining and providing them. If you are interested email me at
If the spindle is turning and the paddle is not then your paddle is worn out and probable slipping on the spindle. If the spindle isn't turning then your problem is underneath the pan or inside the drive and your paddle may be fine.
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.
You can drill and tap the paddle, where it faces the flat on the shaft, and install a small setscrew. Something like a 10-32. Make sure you use a nylok screw or use a thread locking compound (available @ auto parts stores) to prevent the screw from working loose and getting into your bread! Just tighten the screw enough for a snug fit so that it can be removed for cleaning.
