Question about Panasonic Kitchen Appliances - Others
I don't want to repeat myself but I can't find the problem I submitted hours ago, so I've created an account and logged in to try again:
I have a Panasonic SD-250 which is no longer mixing. I normally use the timer and I use bread mixes so I'm not sure of the process, but the resulting loaves are flat, wet and sticky. I did some testing today and I can rotate the paddle with slight resistance in 2 places on a 360 degree turn. It appears it's tried to start mixing - there's mix spattered on the sides of the pan and even inside the lid, but it never gets past a wet mix. It's been working beautifully but a week or so ago it was washed up twice (ie. the pan was submerged in water) without me knowing about it. Would that be the cause of the problem and is there anything I can do to fix it?

There is a sealed bearing and shaft on the bottom of the bread pan that the paddle sits on. Submerging the whole pan in water may have caused water to seep into the bearing on the bottom of the pan, or the whole pan might be worn. Slight resistant in 2 places on 360 degree is not bad. Let everything dry out and we will try a few things. First, put the paddle in the empty pan and place it in the machine. Start a kneading cycle and look trough the lid to see if the paddle is spinning freely and with smooth motion 360 degrees. Watch it until you are sure it will run freely for the entire cycle. If it does not run freely, stop the machine and take the pan out. Now start the kneading cycle again with the pan out and look at the motor shaft at the bottom of the machine to see it it is running freely. If it is running freely, then the problem is with the pan, and the pan needs replacement. If the motor shaft is not turning freely, then the belt is slipping in the machine and needs to be replaced. If everything runs smoothly check the kneading time to make sure your mix has enough time to knead correctly. Hank
