Question about West Bend 41053 Bread & Dough Maker

1 Answer

Rubber coated bearing around the mixing shaft wore out

Too much friction is building up causing the mixer belt too smoke and the paddle not to mix.   where can I get a replacement bearing assembly and the cost.  If I clean the bearing out it works good for that time.

The seal is worn out due to heat and wear over time. Unfortunately, you probably cannot replace the seal without having to replace the entire breadpan for a cost of about $35-40. I've had to replace mine twice over the past 8-9 yrs and will be replacing it again within the next month. I bake a loaf of bread every day or two.

It is not mixing all the way. Nothing is jammed. 3 loaves now have not come out, because clearly it hasn't been mixed thoroughly, like it used to. No burning motor smell.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I an Kelly.

This can be caused by a few things.
1. Check the bread kneading paddle(s). Make sure that it fits properly and is not slipping on the drive shaft. Also look for cracks in the paddle blade hub.

2. Check the bread pan coupler and drive pan bearings (link is a picture reference only of a USED part. http://cgi.ebay.com/Breadman-bread-machine-TR2200-Parts-Coupler-/200535459633?pt=Small_Kitchen_Appliances_US&hash=item2eb0d84731 (klunking sound usually noted if this part has failed)

3. Inside the bottom of the unit check the belt tensioner. (Picture reference only!)

Usually if there is a belt or tensioner problem you will note a lot of rubber pieces in the bottom of the unit.

Hi, It could be that the paddle is sticking or the belt is slipping. This would cause the ingredients not to be mixed properly. Take the empty pan and paddle out of the machine and see if you can spin it freely by hand. It shouldn't stick. If it does stick then the sealed bearing is frozen and a new bread pan is needed. If everytrhing is fine, then check the belts. Belts and motor are located in base of the machine. Unplug machine before working on the belts. Hank

Hi..That assembly is part of the sealed bearing in the bottom of the pan. That sealed bearing allows the shaft and paddle to turn freely. Unfortunately Regal stopped making bread machines and parts several years ago so the chances of you finding a replacement is rare. Hank

Can I stir the batter before the baking cycle? I am following the recipe-sometimes it mixes well and other times it doesn't.


Hi, If it is not mixing well it could be three things. 1) Make sure the bread pan is inserted in the machine correctly. 2) The paddle is sticking. 3) The belt is loose. Take the pan out and see if you can turn the paddle freely by hand. If yes ok. If no, the sealed bearing that the shaft goes through is failing. If everything is ok then check the belt that turns the motor shaft. Motor and belt is located in the base of the machine. Be sure to unplug machine before checking the tension of the belt. Hank

Hi, Sounds like the paddle inside the bread pan did not mix the ingredients very well. Take the pan and paddle out of the machine and see if you can turn the paddle freely by hand. Yes is good..if it sticks then the sealed bearing is failing. Next, keep the pan out of the machine and start a kneading cycle. Look through the lid window and see if the motor shaft turns. The belt may have fallen off or is too loose and the paddle won't turn freely under load. The belt, pulleys and motor are inside the base of the machine. Hank

Lopsided 1.5 lb loaf


This sounds like a mixing problem. Put all the liquids in the bottom, then the dry, and finally the yeast on top so it mixes last.

After the first mixing, the dough should be a ball with nothing sticking to sides.

MEASURE ingredients carefully!

Verify that the paddle turns freely. If it doesn't, then dis-assemble the paddle and clean bearing and shaft. Lube with foodsafe grease before re-assembly.

Panasonic SD-250 not mixing. Pan was submerged in water.


Hello LT,
There is a sealed bearing and shaft on the bottom of the bread pan that the paddle sits on. Submerging the whole pan in water may have caused water to seep into the bearing on the bottom of the pan, or the whole pan might be worn. Slight resistant in 2 places on 360 degree is not bad. Let everything dry out and we will try a few things. First, put the paddle in the empty pan and place it in the machine. Start a kneading cycle and look trough the lid to see if the paddle is spinning freely and with smooth motion 360 degrees. Watch it until you are sure it will run freely for the entire cycle. If it does not run freely, stop the machine and take the pan out. Now start the kneading cycle again with the pan out and look at the motor shaft at the bottom of the machine to see it it is running freely. If it is running freely, then the problem is with the pan, and the pan needs replacement. If the motor shaft is not turning freely, then the belt is slipping in the machine and needs to be replaced. If everything runs smoothly check the kneading time to make sure your mix has enough time to knead correctly. Hank

The mixer blade won't mix. The motor runs but blade won't go.


Hi,
Take the pan out of the machine with the paddle attached and see if you can spin the paddle freely by hand. If you can that's great. If you can't then the paddle is stuck or the bearing is broken.

Then, with the pan out of the machine start it up and look through the lid . Check to see if the shaft where the bread pan and paddle usually goes is spinning. If not then check to see if the drive belt inside the machine fell off or if it needs to be replaced.

Hi,
It seems the kneading paddle isn't spinning. Clean out the pan and take it out of the machine. Put the paddle on the shaft and see it it spins freely. If it does not, then the shaft is stuck or the bearing is frozen.

Next keep the pan out of the machine and start the bread maker up. Look through the clear top and see if the shaft is spinning. If not then the drive belt is broken.

If paddle is okay, and belt is okay, then the motor is broken.

Bread paddle isn't "strong" enough to knead


Hi bex_ta,

If the paddle doesn't have the power to knead, you're probably losing torque at one or more of several points:
1) Where the paddle attaches to the shaft (is there evidence of slippage/wear in the paddle socket?),
2) Where the shaft goes through the pan (possible friction point - presumably this is what you oiled)
3) The belt might be slipping, either due to friction in the shaft, or because the belt is worn and loose.

You need to determine if the shaft is sticking, and if it's because it's bent (fairly unlikely) or if there's something fouling it. You'll need to isolate and fix that first. If you can rotate the shaft freely, then we look at (1) and (3) above - these are simple parts replacements, but the shaft would be more involved.

Belts are getting tough to find - if you can provide specs/measurements, I'm going to start contacting a small-run manufacturer to see about making some new belts, as I'm seeing multiple online requests for belt parts. If you happen to have a broken one, I'd like to get one as a sample to send to a manufacturer.

If I can be of further assistance, or if you have questions about any of my response(s), please let me know before rating me.

If this solves the issue, please rate it accordingly. My goal is to earn a "FixYa" rating from everyone I help.

Thanks for using Fixya.com,
