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.

Re: The ingredients aren't mixing. I have to take the...
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 :-)

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.
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.
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.
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.

1. Measure ingredients in the order listed into Baking Pan. 2. Insert Baking Pan securely into unit; close lid. 3. Select BASIC setting and 2.0 lb. loaf setting. Choose LIGHT or DARK crust setting. 4. Push Start button. There will be a 15-minute preheat delay before mixing begins. 5. The Complete Signal will sound when bread is done. 6. Using pot holders, remove Baking Pan from the unit and carefully turn bread out of Baking Pan. (Mixing paddle may remain in bread. Remove paddle when load if cool.) 7. Allow to cool before slicing.

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
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.
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.
