Question about Oster 5838 ExpressBake Bread Maker
I'm trying to bake bread for the first time with a new breadmaker. The kneading cycle won't turn on. Everything seems to be set up correctly. Any suggestions?I'm using the French cycle.
try here maybe measure your part then maybe a sub will work if someone can send you the specs.

What does it knead? An unstuck switch? Ok, give me the bread, I'll hold it till things get better.
Alright. Does theswitch move or is it stuck? I told you that wasn't a mini scale. Are you capable of dis assembling it? Ok, you aren't. Go to a parts store (auto parts) and pick up a spray can of crc electrical cleaner. Then rush home safely and using the straw on the spray, Spray that evil button and work it while doing so until you hear or feel it snapping again. tilt the machine over the sink and let any excess cleaner run out of the machine. Now, this cleaner is flammable so no smoking or cooking going on. This cleaner is also fast drying and any liquid will evaporate and make a huge hole in the ozone layer and you can watch the falling stars while you sit enjoying you unshared bread. :) This cleaner should free up the switch. Do the spraying and draining out doors for fume sake. You may need to lean the machine side to sideas you work the button. Let the machine dry out before plugging it in. About half hour should do it if you have got all the excess liquid out. When you are ready put the switch in the off position and plug it in. If this doesn't correct the problem the switch needs replacing.. If the machine appears to be working right. turn the switch of and on several times until you are ok with its functioning.. Wipe dow the machine to remove any residue left by the cleaner.
Ok, serious now. the cleaner will vcompletely dry up but it may smell for a little bit. If his worked , all yhis one finger typing was not in vain. Good Luck, -Ned_

SOURCE: I have a toastmaster Bread
Unless the sound is mechanical like metal on metal etc. what you may be hearing is the sound of the dough ball being knocked around and kneaded. Sometimes that gets pretty loud. While it is kneading go ahead and open the top and see if you think the dough ball is making the noise. If it seems to be coming from somwhere else then you may have a more serious problem. Is this a new noise or it this the first time you have used the machine?

Testimonial: "its definately mechanical..."
I had the same problem with my Breadman TR845. I made the first loaf O.K. but the knead paddle would not turn much when it had flour in the bread pan. I took it apart and discovered that the timing belt had slipped off the black plastic gear attached to the shaft of the motor. The belt was still around the shaft of the motor which allowed it to move the paddle a little. I needed a small spacer washer that would keep the black plastic gear from sliding on the shaft and allowing the belt to slip off. There is lip only on one side of the plastic gear so if it moves the belt can slip off. I created a spacing washer from the cap on a tube of toothpaste. I cut the toothpaste cap in half and had to use a metal file to get it the right size. It needed to be 1/4 inch tall and 3/4 inch in diameter. I cut the space so that it could slip over the shaft. After putting it all back together everything works fine. And the toothpaste tube was almost empty anyway.
P.S. There are lots of screws that hold it together and the belt and gears are at the bottom of the Breadman and you have to take the whole thing apart to get to the bottom. I was able to leave all the wires attached so that putting it back together went quickly compared to the work of taking it apart.
