Re: Breadmaker B2300 won't even turn on at all

Sound like your heating element got toasted. You one of two options, try repair it yourself or send it to service center to get it repair. If you decide to repair it yourself just visit your nearest service center, and take the following information; model # , serial #, and brand. There you will get all the information you need to get it up and running again.
Good luck,

Recipes for b&d breadmaker model 2300

Knowing your breadmaker's loaf capacity will enable you to find recipes of any variety on the Internet for free.

It will also keep you from adding too much ingredients which could cause dough to over-rise and spill onto the heating element.

Remove your bread pan from your breadmaker. Using a one-cup 8-fluid-ounce liquid measure, fill your bread pan with water. As you do, count the number of cups it takes to fill your bread pan to the very rim.

Generally speaking...

If your bread pan holds 7 & 10 cups to the rim then you have a 1.0 lb or 500 g loaf pan

10 & 11 cups to fill = 1.5 lb (700 g) loaf pan

11 & 13 cups to fill = 2.0 lb (900 g) loaf pan

13 & 15 cups to fill = 2.5 lb (1250 g) loaf pan

15 & 17 cups to fill = 3.0 lb (1350 g) loaf pan

Generally speaking...

A bread recipe for use in a 1.0 lb (500 g) breadmaker should never exceed 2-1/4 total cups of flour.

1.5 lb (700 g) = 3-1/4 c

2.0 lb (900 g) = 4-1/4 c

2.5 lb (1250 g) = 5-1/4 c

3.0 lb (1300 g) = 6-1/4 c

Warning: When testing a new bread recipe it is always best that you not leave your breadmaker unattended. Stay close by to monitor its progress from time to time.

I have a convection bread maker. I made one loaf of bread tonight and i unplugged the machine. 30 minutes later, I tried to make a second loaf ant the menu select wouldn't work but the start and mix in...

Cuisinart has many different bread machine models. Next time you ask a question, please include a model number. Thank you.

Here's my generic best advice for you dear:

Addressing Power-up/Start-up Issues:

1. Unplug the breadmaker.

2. Confirm the power source you're accessing is live using a blender, toaster, etc.

3. Plug the breadmaker in.

4. Confirm the breadmaker is receiving power:

    1. Some models have a built-in off/on toggle power switch. Turn it to the ON position.
    2. Some models confirm power by making and audible tone when plugged in.
    3. Some models have a colored light and/or a lighted display screen that lights up.
    4. Some models require you press and hold the Select button down until the unit powers up.
    5. Some models require you press and hold the Start button down until the unit powers up.
    6. Some models require you select a mode first by pressing the Select button.
    7. Some models require you press and hold the Stop button down until the unit powers up.

Were you able to confirm that your breadmaker is receiving power?

No. Sorry to hear that. Attempt to have the breadmaker serviced by a small appliance repair facility or simply discard it.

Yes, Fantastic! Now reboot the breadmaker's electronics by pressing and holding down the Stop button down until you receive a visible and/or audible confirmation, usually within 1 to 5 seconds. Note: Some models require you press and hold the Start button. Others require you press and hold the Select button.

Often the + and - Timer Delay buttons are pressed by mistake, delaying Start by up to 12 hours. If you suspect the Timer Delay feature has been engaged accidentally, you'll need to reboot the breadmaker's electronics.

All breadmaker use a belt and pulley system. If your breadmaker powers-up but the mixer won't turn when it's supposed to, your belt is probably broken. You'll need to disassemble the breadmaker to visually confirm.

I received my breadmaker Christmas 2009. I have always used the basic setting but decided to make wheat bread. The recipe calls for a different setting. After I plugged it in, nothing happened; for...

Yes, many machines warm up a little when you choose the wheat setting, also if your manual shows the cycle times for the various programs you will probably notice a different Knead time (more) vs. the basic program and that is because whole wheat flour lacks enough gluten to make a nice, large, soft loaf, so to compensate it has a longer knead. Even with that though your whole wheat loaves are probably going to be shorter than a 100 whole wheat loaf.
Many bakers ( me included) add purchased wheat gluten and add that to the flour, (be sure to remove and equal amount of w. wheat flour from the recipe if you do this) to get a softer, higher, better texture loaf.

Kneading blade cooks into the loaf

Hi Jessica,

As I read the manual, under the Care & Cleaning section,

"2. If the kneading blades remain in the bread pan, grip the kneading blade and
pull straight up to remove......"

Based on the diagrams and instructions, I don't think you're supposed to pull the blades before baking...why do you want them out? Cosmetics?

If I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance for using,

B2300 breadmaker

I had the same problem and what you need to do is hold the start button down for 3 seconds and that will clear the default setting (1 3:30). Then select the settings you need starting with the program setting for your recipe (i.e. #4 for sandwich bread). Bear in mind that you may not be able to select your crust light/dark option for some recipes, but will be able to select the loaf size. I assume this is because the recipe program (i.e. #4 for sandwich loaf) is already prescribed in the setting. When you have all of your selections then press your start button, but don't hold it down for longer than a second because it will clear everything and you will have to start again from step 1. Good luck!

Breadmaker Won't Start

I had the same problem. Check the delay start button even though it doesn't tell you to. To get my machine to work the first time I used Menu #3 (which does not have a delay start) and it worked. Then I tried to use the dough cycle and it wouldn't go either, so I unplugged the machine, plugged it back in, went to Menu # 3 first to see the time (which was 1:50) then I checked the delay time to make sure it was also set at 1:50. Mine was not (it said 2:00) so I moved it down to 1:50 and it started 15 minutes later. I really don't like this 15 minute delay on this machine. I am going to try regular bread later and I will make sure that the delay time is the same as the time given for completing the loaf ( ie make sure it says 3:30 NOT 13:30. I hope this works.

I have a problem with uneven shaped loaves

The paddles fit two ways, so what you must do is have them facing opposite ways, then they fight with each other and elongate the loaf
