Question about Sunbeam 5891 Bread Maker

1 Answer

The apparatus/prongs that operate the paddle don't move properly

The apparatus/prongs that operate the paddle make a humming noise, but they are sluggish, and inconsistent - the noise is different from the usual noise when the cycle begins (3 hour cycle). My husband 'fiddled' with it and got it to work better, but then it would slip back into the humming/sluggish mode. Any suggestions?

Take off the bottom and spray the bearing under the oven with automotive brake cleaner. This will free them up.

The paddle on my kitchenaid won't turn. It just makes a humming noise. Any suggestions?

Is the humming noise the sound of the motor straining to turn without moving (it won't last very long like that) or the sound of the motor turning but not operating the paddle?

Clicking noise is normal for relays but humming sounds like one of the relays is not engaging properly.Try swapping relays of the same type and see if it solves the problem.

My nad 3020 is making a buzzing noise when i connect to peakers even when nothing else is connected to it. any solutions ?

you may have a bad Earth power 110 V AC cable connection which makes such hum / buzz even nothing connected..
Check the connections between components and make sure they are secure before proceeding to the next Step. Sometimes, loose connections can cause a hum.
  • Separate the audio cables from the power cables; electromagnetic interference from the power cables can cause stereo hum. Use cable ties to secure the audio cables away from the power cables.
  • Plug in a surge protector to the outlet, and then plug all the components into that surge protector
  • Connect a ground plug to the surge protector and then plug the ground plug into the main outlet. A ground plug is available at any hardware store, and turns a three prong connection into a two prong. Ground plugs help eliminate 60 cycle hum.
  • 5 Connect the ground wire from your turntable to the ground wire connection on the receiver. If this doesn't work, looking on the back there should be a grounding point,

    Unplug your receiver.. Split a wire and attach one of the splits to the receiver where you will see the text, "ground" or something similar. Attach the other end to something metal such as a pipe that goes into the ground. Secure with electrical tape. Plug in.
    connect the ground wire to a screw on the electrical outlet.

    My amplifier is making a very loud humming noise

    Are you able to turn the hum up and down.If you can't then you have a leaky filter in your power supply.If you can turn it up and down then it sounds like one of your grounds are open.

    I have the Black and Decker All-In-One Deluxe Automatic Breadmaker B1600 Series and it's worked well for years. Today I put the ingredients for a loaf in the bread pan and when it started to mix the paddle...

    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

    Hum during any playback

    If it is a three prong plug you may have a ground loop issue. Make sure all connections are fully connected first. Break off the round, ground prong see if that helps. It will also cause lines or color differences in tvs with a 3 prong plugs. If that is'nt it. It will not affect any operation or safty of the product.
