Read this on how I fixed a Regal Kitchen Pro 6725 with an Oster belt. Regal no longer makes or sells parts. My bread machine made all of the right noises, but the mixing blade did not move.....upon investigation, I learned that the drive belt had completely disintegrated. I measured for the length of the belt, found that an Oster belt would be the same size and length, and installed it. It works. I hope this helps you.

Hi, I have the same machine and the belt was in tiny rotten pieces...I wound a piece of yarn around the wheel and drive shaft (lie the machine on a kitchen counter, lid open and hanging down off of the counter, bottoms up, and remove the screws from the teardrop shaped brass colored safety cover, remove the cover and expose the wheel and drive shaft) pull the yarn tight and knot it. Then cut the yarn about an inch from the knot. Measure the yarn when pulled on a little. Mine measured 23.5"....I then googled bread machine belt 23.5" and up came one for an Oster Bread Machine (The one I was repairing was a Regal Kitchen Pro 6725) from located at 2 De Bush Ave Unit A8 Middleton, MA 01949
It was $7.95 for the belt, $6.95 S & H to a VA address, total cost $14.90 so I decided to give it a shot. When it got here, I removed the safety cover, held the machine up and shook as much of the old rotten rubber belt pieces out as I could, and replaced the belt by placing it over the sticky string on the drive shaft and teasing it over the wheel. It is an exact fit. Be sure the ribbed side of the belt is down against the wheel. Screw the cover back on and run it through a dough cycle so that the belt will get coated with the sticky stuff from the sticky string on the drive shaft. Until the belt is coated, it will turn the mixing blade, but it will slip. Hope this helps. Patti

Bread dough beater will not come off

Make sure your Beater can slip in and out of the Beater Shaft
easily. Do not force the beater onto the Shaft if the shaft is bent.
If it cannot be removed easily by hand, use a soft rubber mallet
(not a steel hammer) to slightly tap the beater so it can be moved
up and down the shaft or from side to side. Then you can easily
turn the beater left and remove it from the shaft.

From Kitchenaid Manual:
To Attach Flat Beater, Wire Whip, or Dough Hook
1. Turn speed control to OFF.
2. Unplug stand mixer or disconnect power.
3. Tilt motor head back.
4. Slip beater onto beater shaft and press upward
as far as possible.
5. Turn beater to right, hooking beater over pin on shaft.
6. Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.

While the machine is kneading it makes an awful grinding sound.It sounds like the paddle is not moving.If you lift the dough up the paddle moves freely.

It sounds like your belt is slipping. All bread machine operate off of an electric motor and drive belt and they do wear out.

The machine gets warm but the paddle doesn't turn.

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

I have never used a breadmaker before, and I followed the directions but don't see it mixing.

It could be two things wrong with the machine. To check for a belt that fell off the pulley or has snapped, take the bread pan out of the machine and start a kneading (mixing) cycle. Then look through the lid window and see if the motor shaft is turning. If not then it's probably the belt. If it is turning, then you can try spinning the paddle in the bread pan by hand (while it's out of the machine). If you can't spin it freely, then the sealed bearing is frozen. Try pitting hot water in the pan and soak it. Do this a few times...if it still doesn't move freely then the bearing is broken and the whole bread pan needs to be replaced. Hank

The machine does not rotate, I mean it does not mix the dough, the sound is on of rotating but it doesnt move on.

Take the bread pan and paddle out of the machine and see it you can spin the paddle freely by hand. If no, then the sealed bearing is frozen or broken. If yes keep the pan out of the machine and start a kneading cycle. Look through the lid window and see if the motor shaft is spinning. If no then the belt fell off or snapped, or the motor is broken.

Self Propel wheels not enough power to move machine over carpet.

Sounds like the transmission might need an overhaul. Take it to a local vacuum repair shop and have them look at the transmission.

Can't move the lever to start the machine - it's frozen on off position.

Unplug first. Mixers can detach from the bowl base. You may have a lockout either in the latch mechanism or in the beaters. Try removing the mixer head from the base and the beaters from their sockets. Then plug in and try switch. If not working, unplug and attach beaters. Replug and try. Then attach to base and try again.

Make sure speed control does not have safety feature requiring to press in before turning control.

Good Luck.

Rotating Shaft of Hitachi HB 101 frozen and won't move blade.

It can't be repaired. If machine is under warranty try to get a new bread pan. If not, try calling manufacturer to see if you can buy a new one.
