I cannot remove the paddle from the shaft

First try soaking overnight with enough water to cover the paddle. If that doesn't work go to you tube and type in "how to remove a stuck bread machine paddle" Use a 1 gallon jug instead of 2 to start with, because if you have on of the thin pans 2 gallons might bend it. If that method doesn't work it may be impossible to remove.

My machine was in storage for awhile and the paddle will not come out or turn. If I take the pan out and turn the machine on, it works but with the pan in, it wont . It seems to be frozen. Is it possible...

Don't give up just yet. Pull the pan out and put a few inches of soapy warm water in it and let is soak over night. Try to wiggle it loose the next day. If that doesn't work then go to youtube and type the following in the search box: "How to Remove a Stuck Bread Machine Paddle"
You will see my short video there on what to do if soaking hasn't worked. Good luck, and let me know if either of these solutions work for you.

Just soak your paddle over night in soapy water and try jiggling it loose. If that doesn't work go to you tube and type in " how to remove a stuck bread machine paddle or kneading blade" in the search bar. You will see a one minute and 34 second video starring me on how to do it!
Do what is in the video after 24 hours of soaking.

The paddle doesn't seem to have a strong enough "push" behind it

Hello, Either the blade is sticking or the belt is loose. Take the pan out and see if you can spin the paddle freely by hand. The paddle should turn nice and free. If it doesn't then the lubricated bearing the paddle rotates on is sticking. This could be due to wear. Put some warm water in the pan and let it sit. Try a few times...DO NOT put the whole pan in water...just fill it. If that's a no go the lubricated bearing is frozen and the pan needs to be replaced. If everything is fine in the pan, then the belt is loose. Belt, pulleys and motor are located in the base of the machine. Remember to unplug first before working on it.. Hank

Kneading paddles dont snap into the spindles .

The situation you speak of is common for ALL bread machines. You want the paddle to come off freely so it won't get stuck on the motor spindle. You can take the paddle out of the machine after the final kneading cycle and before final rise. This will prevent a big hole in the bread. If your machine does not have a pause cycle, take the pan out of the machine to remove the paddle to be safe. Hank

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

My tr440 will time, rise and bake, but not mix/knead. I think it is the motor switch and am trying to find a replacement switch. Where can I find one?

Try a couple of things first. 1) take the bread pan out of the machine and put the paddle in it. If you can turn the paddle by hand then this is good. If you can't turn it by hand then the sealed bearing is frozen. Try filling the pan with warm water to try and free it. If you can't then bread pan needs to be replaced. 2) Take the bread pan out of the machine and start a kneading cycle. Look through the window on the lid and see if the motor spindle shaft is turning. If not then the motor is bad or the belt snapped or fell off the pulley.

Just trying to help! Happy Holidays...Hank

Blades stuck inside bread

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 :)
