Question about Regal Ware K6725 Kitchen Pro Bread Maker
The drive belt on this bread machine has shredded. When we opened up the machine, we saw not only shreds of the belt but also the partial unraveling of the waxed thread that is wound around the drive shaft. We started to remove the thread, then realized it might be part of the mechanism. However, much of it had already unwound prior to our efforts, and it is now a mess of tangled threads. What should we use to replace the waxy thread? There are some waxed threads online, but they appear to be too thick. We have found a replacement belt, but not sure we want to buy it if the whole thing won't work.
The "waxed threads" are the remains of your belt. You need to remove all that stuff completely and throw it away and try installing your new belt. There are videos of how to do that on youtube. By the way does your machine have little teeth on both wheels or are the wheels smooth where the belt was?

Hi, I have the same machine and the belt was in tiny rotten pieces...I wound a piece of yarn around the wheel and drive shaft (lie the machine on a kitchen counter, lid open and hanging down off of the counter, bottoms up, and remove the screws from the teardrop shaped brass colored safety cover, remove the cover and expose the wheel and drive shaft) pull the yarn tight and knot it. Then cut the yarn about an inch from the knot. Measure the yarn when pulled on a little. Mine measured 23.5"....I then googled bread machine belt 23.5" and up came one for an Oster Bread Machine (The one I was repairing was a Regal Kitchen Pro 6725) from totalvac.com located at 2 De Bush Ave Unit A8 Middleton, MA 01949
It was $7.95 for the belt, $6.95 S & H to a VA address, total cost $14.90 so I decided to give it a shot. When it got here, I removed the safety cover, held the machine up and shook as much of the old rotten rubber belt pieces out as I could, and replaced the belt by placing it over the sticky string on the drive shaft and teasing it over the wheel. It is an exact fit. Be sure the ribbed side of the belt is down against the wheel. Screw the cover back on and run it through a dough cycle so that the belt will get coated with the sticky stuff from the sticky string on the drive shaft. Until the belt is coated, it will turn the mixing blade, but it will slip. Hope this helps. Patti
