Hi, will try to help. This sounds like there is ice or debris that is in around the paddle or the auger preventing to turn at full speed. Without the blower running, look all over around the paddle and auger and get out anything that might be in there. I think that is the problem. This has happened to me many times, and have repaired many like that. I hope this helps you out. All the best and good luck.
The two tabs are for On ad OFF. One is slightly longer than the other. If the OFF tab is in the ON location, it won't work, it'll just click past the time and not flip the paddle to ON.
Try this, turn the dial (NOT pulled out) around slowly and see if it flips the paddle to ON. Keep turning it, slowly, and see if it flips to OFF. If it works while you're "helping it" then it should work automatically. If it doesn't, maybe the gear is damaged and it can't move past a certain point.
Does the time move? Do you hear the motor running? I've seen the motors go bad. The manual flipping will work then, but the motor isn't running the clock around.
Pull the pan out and turn the little paddle with your finger. Is the paddle slipping on the spindle? If yes, then your paddle is worn out. If you move the paddle around and it doesn't slip on the spindle then look to see if the ears on the bottom of the pan are turning too when you move the paddle. If yes, then your problem is further down in the machine. You may have a slipping belt. Those are some of the things you can check.
Hi, The paddle should turn freely by hand with the bread pan out of the machine. Make sure the pan is inserted in the machine correctly. If the motor shaft turns but the paddle doesn't then the sealed bearing that the paddle rotates on has failed and is frozen so the paddle does not turn.. You may need a new bread pan. Hank
Hi, If this is the third time using it, it could be defective. Return it for service. If not under warranty, try a few things. 1) Make sure the pan is inserted in the machine correctly. 2) Make sure that the paddle is not sticking, or the sealed bearing on the bottom of the bread pan is not broken or frozen. (Take pan out and see if you can turn the paddle freely by hand). Or finally, the belt may be loose and slipping, especially when it takes more power to knead the dough the second time. Good luck...Hank
There is a sealed bearing in the bottom of the bread pan. The paddle sits on the sealed bearing shaft. Over time the bearing begins to fail and the paddle does not turn freely or it may even freeze up. If you are sure everything is installed correctly this may be the problem. See if the paddle moves freely by hand and is not really loose. Sealed bearings can not be replaced. Eventually you will need a new bread pan. Sorry Hank
