I just had the same problem. What the manual either does not tell you or hides quite well is that you have to TWIST the pan before lifting it out. I don't know why this was listed under the Panasonic bread machine when it clearly refers to the Sunbeam bread machine.
I agree with Sol #2 by Apprentice Zaivalananda. You wiggle or carefully twist the pan first. Then it comes out easily. Another tip: when the buzzer buzzes, turn off the machine at the wall, open the lid and wait for about 3 minutes to allow the machine to cool down before donning mitts to twist the pan. Then like magic, out it comes! Voila! Next turn pan upside down & grasp the cross piece & twist it both left and right about a third of an inch to loosen the bread.

We have one and used it for years. What we found works is to take the kneading plate out before it starts cooking. Do this after the beeps to let you know when to add fruit, and the kneading has finished. This also saves bread as you do not loose a bug chunk in the bottom. Our pan is not very good any more, but we can still get the loaf out without any problems. Just need to let it cool for about 10 minutes out of the machine before attempting to take the loaf out if it is stuck.
hi sonotim, Here is website that shows the pan that would replace yours as the first item. I think locating just the little gasket would be difficult. It looks like the site will probably redirect you to ebay. There are a lot of parts for bread machines on ebay. If you feel this is helpful please rate/rank/vote for me on fixya....Thanks!
Hi. They sell the belts at Amazon for about $10.00. First you should make sure the paddle is not stuck. Take the bread pan out and see if you can turn the paddle by hand. Keep pan out of machine and start a kneading cycle. If motor shaft does not spin then it's probably the belt. Motor and belt is located in base of machine. Make sure you unplug the machine before checking out the belt. Hank
Hi, The sealed bearing at the bottom of your bread pan has failed. There is no fix for it. You will need to hunt around for a new bread pan. Check ebay. (My pan failed also, and the pans on eBay were about $30.00. I bought a brand new Sunbeam at Walmart for just under $50.00. Oster and Sunbeam are the same). Good Luck...Hank
Hi, I usually take the paddle out of the machine at the end of the kneading cycle and before the rise cycle. (Do this with the pan out of the machine..just in case). You don't want to use anything in the pan that will scratch it. Usually a few quick taps of the bread pan on the cutting board will free the bread.
Hi, The little bearing that turns the paddle is frozen. You will need to get a new bread pan. This happened to me after 7 years of use. If under warranty have them replace it. It was about $25.00 for a used bread pan on ebay, so I just bought a new machine at Wally World (Walmart) for $52.00.
I have made the following recipe in my West Bend machine with great results. I just got a Sunbeam 5895 at a garage sale - it works great - just wanted a different "shape" loaf! I'm going to use this recipe in my Sunbeam - don't see why it won't work!
Here's the recipe! 1/2 cup softened butter, cut into small pieces for good blending 1 cup mashed ripe banana (personal note: if my ripe bananas don't measure up to 1 cup, I add enough milk to make it 1 cup. Seems to be okay) 2 eggs, large, slightly beaten 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional) 2 cups all purpose flour 3/4 cup sugar 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt
Grease inside of pan and knead bar generously with vegetable shortening (I just spray with Pan Spray). All all ingredients in order listed above to pan. Lock pan into bread machine. Program for quick bread. After a few minutes of mixing, I usually take a rubber spatula and scrape down the sides and stir in any flour that has not been completely mixed. I didn't do this once and ended up with a loaf that had flour coated corners!
