Question about Cuisinart CBK-200 Bread Maker

2 Answers

The ingredients aren't mixing. I have to take the dough out and

Knead it myself at the same time that I remove the paddle (after 3 sets of 6 beeps). I haven't tried letting it go without manually kneading it, just assuming that the paddles aren't doing the job. There is a lot of flour that hasn't even been mixed in. The machine is brand new. Have only used it twice, once with a box recipe (9 grain) and once from the recipe book that came with the machine (honey whole wheat). The bread isn't really rising very high too.

    I have the same problem. My machine is 2 years old, gets used 1-2x/week. It worked great till about 2 weeks ago, then it seemed like the pan shaft froze. The rotor will spin around when the machine empty, but not when the pan is there, with or without ingredients. I thought my pan had gotten too beat up and leaked around the shaft (it was hard to turn the shaft by hand even with pan empty and out of the machine), so I got a new pan, but still same problem. Barely mixes ingredients, no kneading at all. I can look and see the paddle not spinning unless I lift the dough off it with a spoon, even though you can hear the motor working. It seems as if some sort of clutch or gear that is supposed to protect the motor from burning out is slipping, and it won't turn any of the time.

    Same issues as the other two posts, worked great for 2 years and now now mixing the ingredients.

    Sometimes the machine won't mix all the ingredients. I get a lump of dough in the middle and flour sitting around the outside of it. I watch it mixing hoping it will somehow mix all the flour in, but I inevitably have to open it up and knead it myself.

    I got my cuisinart breadmaker in Febuary of this year '09 as a Valentines gift. Used it 6 times. It now does not mix the ingredients into a dough ball, paddle barely moves. I've checked everything... What the heck happened? I'm mad.

    This happened to mine. The 'arm' at the bottom was stuck and wasn't turning. Make sure that the arm is freely turning.

Why are yo removing the paddle? Is it to prevent a hole in the bread? It's unavoidable unless you use the dough setting only.

My experience with the machine is that it kneads perfectly, but you have to use ACTIVE DRY YEAST instead of another kind of yeast, and you have to throw the ingredients into the pan in order - do not mix the ingredients at all - just pour them in, and let the machine do the mixing. Except for substituting between BREAD FLOUR and WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR, do not substitute any other ingredients. This one is very picky about the type of ingredients that you use - not for the innovator :-)

My bread maker paddle is turning correctly, but it is not mixing the ingredients. We put liquids in first. The first time we used it, it was perfect?


You may have too dry or too watery a batter. Check your ingredient mix for accurate measurements.
Recheck the unit without ingredients in place to be absolutely sure you have the paddle seated correctly. Although most are designed to make it very hard to put the paddle on incorrectly, old dough or batter may harden in place and keep the paddle form fully seating correctly.

Is there anything I can do?


I don't know about your specific model, but in most bread makers there is a removable paddle that goes in the bottom of the bread pan after you put that in the machine. The paddle usually has a flattened side on the hole which slides on to the post sticking up from the bottom of the machine. If you look at the post straight down from above it should be D shaped. The usual procedure is to put the pan in the machine, install the paddle, and then add your ingredients. Assuming you are doing this and it is still not working, trying running it through a mix only cycle (like for pizza dough) with the machine empty to see if the paddle is engaging and spinning properly. If it is not, contact the manufacturer for assistance.

Kneading Paddle


All bread machines have a final "punch down" of the dough that lasts a few seconds before the final rise stage. When "punch down" is over that is when you can remove the dough ball, remove the paddle, set it aside and place the dough ball back in the pan. It usually helps to have your hands dusted with a little bit of flour.

My breadmaker is on the dough setting and will not beep to let me know when to add ingredients to the dough


If there is no beep just look at your manuals cycle times and verify how long the 2nd knead takes. Then set another timer such as an alarm clock or oven timer etc. to alert you with a beep that coincides with 5 minutes BEFORE then end of the 2nd knead. Add your fruit, nuts etc. then.

When i put the ingredients as directed, i selected the program then put the delay on. when i woke up expecting fresh bread, i had a hard 3 inch brick with flour and yeast sitting on top of it. was i...


No, Everything should be done automatically. It seems that the machine did not knead the dough. Two things may have caused this. 1) The paddle is frozen and wont turn. Take the pan out of the machine and see if you can rotate the paddle by hand. If yes...that's cool, if no then the sealed bearing that the paddle rotates on is jammed or broken. Try filling the pan with warm water and let it soak. If after a few times it's still frozen, then the bearing is broken and bread pan needs to be replaced. 2) Belt fell off or is snapped. Keep the pan out of the machine and go to a kneading cycle. Look through the window on the lid and see if the motor shaft is turning. If no... the belt fell off or snapped, or the motor is broken. Good luck..Hank

Can the kneading paddle be removed before baking?


Hi,
Yes you can remove the paddle before baking. The cuizinart has a buzzer that sounds when to take the paddle out

If you want to take the paddle out you should make sure your machine has a pause feature so you don't lose any rising time.

Take pan out of machine, empty dough into a bowl, remove paddle, squirt the shaft in the bread pan lightly with veg oil (prevents sticking) then return the dough after final kneading time and before final rise.

What is a kneading paddle in tr441breadman


It mixes the dough. All you do is put the ingredients into the bread maker, turn it on and wait. It will do all the work for you.

Sorry, I don't know too much about breadmakers, but generally speaking, you add ingredients that you want to remain solid later into the mixture. If you add them before the dough is dough-y, then they'll get crushed.
