Replace the lithium battery in Model BBCC-S15

Can I replace the battery or can I trust a local repair shop to replace it. The machine would cost too much to ship it to authorized Zojirushi repair shops.

I faced the same problem with my BBCC-S15 bread maker. My wife decided it was a good Idea to pull this machine out after years of being idle. I knew the battery was dead. My solution is as follows and it is quite simple, actually. The battery that is currently in the machine is obsolete I believe that it is a 2354. You can find it, but it will not come with the solder tabs to put it back on the board. You will need a soldering iron, and a desoldering iron to complete this task. If you are not good at soldering I suggest that you ask a friend who has these tools to do it for you. These boards are old and you don't want to risk debonding the traces. First you will notice after removing the lid, 2 phillips head screws right in front, remove them. Next, gently pry the panel towards you, and you don't need a knife or screw driver to do this, use your fingernails. Once you move the panel forward, pull up on it with gentle pressure not to far though, there is a connector that you need to remove. Pull the connector down and don't disorient it's position. The panel is now free. Remove the 4 phillips head screws securing a cover and remove the cover and the circuit board is clearly seen. Gently remove the circuit board and flip it over. The battery is located bottom right corner of the display. Lead free solder was used so you will need to put a little heat to it to desolder the battery. Make sure that you unsolder the right connections, there are only 2. They are the 2 connections with the most solder on the entire board. Now go to Radio Shack and buy their 2032 battery holder and the battery. This holder is almost the exact pin spacing that you need minus about 1/32 inch. Make sure that you put the positive terminal to the + sign on the board. You will have to nudge the holder slightly but it will fit right in. Resolder the Holder and insert the battery. Now you have a removable battery forever. The main purpose of this fix is so that you can now replace the battery easily and never have to resolder a hard to find 2354 in place again. Reassemble in reverse order and you did it!!!

    My husband did this just this evening. It took about 30 minutes. He did not need a desoldering iron as he was able to melt the solder with his soldering iron, and there was plenty of solder there for him to re-solder the new connection. Radio Shack's 2032 battery holder fit quite nicely and cost only $1.99.

    Thanks VERY much for these instructions.

    My bread machine was given to me (possibly because the battery was dead). I could use it, but not as easily as if the battery worked. Thanks again!

My Zojirushi BBCC-S15 works even though the window blinks 8:00. Why is a battery needed?


Some automatic breadmakers have a place for inserting batteries.

The intent is to create a memory back-up for two things:

1: The digitally-displayed clock setting, and
2: Personalized program settings you save to the machine to perform again later.

Now you're not required to install or replace the batteries in your breadmaker unless you desire these settings to be maintained long after the breadmaker is unplugged.

And, if you do decide to install or replace the batteries be certain to use alkaline-grade or better.

But be forewarned though: Breadmaker clocks don't adjust for DST (Daylight Saving Time)

Hope this helps!

My zojirushi BBCC-S15 is working well even though the timer stays at 8:00 and this indicates the battery needs to be replaced. The machine does not signal any sounds during the different stages. Just what...


The battery is a back-up for the time display. Actual clock time, not the delay timer time. The battery also backs up any custom settings you created using the Homemade mode. Hope this helps.

I have a Zojirushi bbcc-s15, and it started to leak from the bottom pan. The felt washer on the bottom has fallen off. Where can I find or how can I replace the outer and inner parts?


Hi,
All those parts are part of the sealed bearing that is stamped into the bottom of the pan. Unfortunately they can't be replaced and you will need a new bread pan. Sorry Hank

Zojirushi BBCC-S15 Flashing Lights won't reset


Reading my manual...the built-in lithium battery can be good for 4-5 years. The blinking"8:00 am" would indicate the problem. I am at that point now, but to send in the machine to fix it would be a challenge...
