We have had a number of bread makers and this is the way they work - the bread cooks and the paddle has to pull out somehow so it just rips a hole in the bread. We found it better to let the machine do all the mixing etc. then my wife takes the dough out and puts most of it in a loaf pan and some in the form of buns in another pan. Works better for us & the bread is a more "normal" shape rather than the odd shape produced in the breadmaker. Also the crust isn't so tough when done our way.

When the paddle was removed from the bread it tore out a large chunk of the bread. What is needed is a hard slippery coating. I did the following to two of my older machines: Buy a spray can of Hi-Temp engine enamel, gloss finish. Thouroughly clean paddle with a strong solvent, I used lacquer thinner and steel wool. Spray on two coats and bake in oven at 450 degrees for an hour. No more sticking!
Yes, if the blade come off then your bread is not going to mix and knead properly. The blades on all makers are designed to slip on and off though so you can remove them for cleaning etc. Be sure you are pushing the paddle all the way on. If it still comes off when mixing that would be very odd as the weight of the dough ball itself helps keep paddles on. I have owned dozens of machines by different manufacturers and never had a paddle come off in process.
you leave the kneeding blade inside , i now its a pain but thats how it is when youve baked your bread you turn the tin upside down and tap the loaf out but theres a hole where the needer has been ,,i have looked at every bread machine on the market and there all the same.....
Hi, This is a common problem. The solution is to take the paddle out of the machine after the last kneading cycle and before final rise/bake. You may want to take the pan out of the machine to remove the paddle to be safe...unless your machine has a pause cycle. Hank
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).
Unfortunately trying to stick the paddles in the pan just tends to leave half the loaf in the bottom with them.
The best method i have found is to cut the crust around the outside of the paddles, carefully avoiding the bit where the actual paddle blade is, then you insert a rod into the centre of the paddle and tilt it towards the blade. They normally come free pretty easily.
Another method you can use if you are around the machine when it is making bread, is to remove the paddles at the end of the mixing/kneading cycle, just before the baking cycle starts. Most machines have a small pause allowing you to do this - sometimes with a "beep" or screen message to tell you that you can do this. Sorry i couldn't find the exact info for your model, it will vary for different baking programs also.
If you check the cycle to determine at which stage it starts actually baking, then you can do this quite safely so long as you are careful of the machine heating up while you are removing the paddles - usually you would have around 20 minutes at least to remove the paddles before baking.
Hope this helps :)
I've had pretty good results with a crochet hook (use a metal one that can be run through your dishwasher). Insert the hook through the hole in the paddle and it should catch on the far side just enough to pull the paddle out of the loaf. Best to do it before it cools and the crust hardens, though.
