This is my first use on this machine (Breadman Ultimate Plus). When it reached the 2nd knead cycle we heard a pop and looked in the window - the machine kept going but the dough wasn't moving. I tried the pause button but nothing happed. So, I opened the door and replaced the pan -- it popped back out a few minutes later and I repeated my steps making sure it was securely placed. I've had other bread machines and know how to securely seat the pan - it was in place when I started. same problem here...
Re: Bread pan pops out during the kneading 2 cycle
I had a similar problem after using the same machine for several years. It worked well for years and then popped off the shaft whenever I had a rather stilll dough. To solve the problem I bent the clips on each side of the bread pan that hold the pan into the machine up and toward the center of the machine. I did not use any tools to do the bending. It solved the problem. The pan no longer jumps up out of the clips and off of the shaft.

I just purchased this 2 days ago and started to use it. I noticed the bread pan would wobble and was noisy during the kneading cycle. On the second use the paddle came off during the kneading cycle. Being a service technician all my life, I started to analyze the problem. I was previously surprised how loose the bread pan fitted into the bread maker and suspected there should be something to support the pan and hold it in place. I could not see anything obvious, but after looking carefully I noticed spring clips on the bottom of the bread pan, and also mating spring clips in the bottom of the bread maker. If I pushed the bread pan down fairly hard into the bread maker the bread pan would snap firmly in place. This stopped the wobbling during the kneading cycle and the paddle coming off. I could not find anywhere in the manual where it explained the bread pan must be pushed firmly down into place until it snaps in. The manufacturer should explain this to their customers on their website.
Hi, sorry your dispenser appears not to be working. Unless and until you can repair it you can always add fruit and nuts the old fashioned way. Take a look at your manual and find the program you are using. Find how long the 2nd knead cycle lasts. For example lets say your 2nd knead last 20 minutes. Plan on opening the lid of your machine 10 minutes into the 2nd knead. All bread machines recommend add-ins well into the 2nd knead. Just have your ingredients premeasured on a paper plate next to the machine and fold the plate and pour them in halfway into the 2nd knead of the program you chose. At least that will help you get the bread you wanted.
Hi, If the motor shaft is not spinning with the bread pan out of the machine it could be the belt has fallen off the pulley, or has snapped. The belt and pulley are inside the base of the machine. Hank
it is very imporant that you put the ingredients in the right order (water on the bottom, flour floating on top o it, yeast on the flour not touching the wwater). Also the amount of water is crucial. The bread becomes evenly distributed during rise. Rise problems might be due to improper kneading which in turn might be due to the pan jumping. Check that the pan is not jumping during kneading.
I have Breadman Ultimate for over 12 years now. I make bread 2-3 times a week for the past 10 years. I found that the bread pan popping out only happens when the motor shaft and the kneading paddle are not tightly engaged. I find this problem in the following two scenarios:
1. The bread pan was not pushed down all the way as described by cassie_hobbs and tlcquiltnut.
2. Debris filled up the motor-shaft bowl underneath the bread pan to prevent a tight engagement of the motor shaft and the kneading paddle. These debris are generated during the kneading process; part of the ingredients is pushed out of the shallow horizontal pan and accumulated underneath.
To avoid the problem, I have to periodically remove debris from the shaft bowl and make sure the pan pushed all the way down.
To reduce the debris, I made a simple cover for the bread pan by cutting an old aluminum baking dish. I always remove the cover after the kneading cycle to prevent the rising dough from reaching the bottom of the cover.
Hope this helps.
Me too! I have to bend the two metal pieces on the sides out before every use - they are pretty flexible, you won't break them. Just bend out and they hold the pan in for a use or two. Not an elegant solution, I admit, but it works.
