Breadmaker Won't Start

I'm trying to use my B&D B2300 for the first time. I have followed all the directions and made all selections required for the "basic" setting. I then turn the power "ON" and I wait. The screen shows "3:30" and counts down with the colon flashing. After 45 minutes, nothing has happened. What is the problem?

I tried my regular bread setting like I said I was going to in the previous solution and it worked. Here are the steps that I did. Put pan in machine, plugged unit in, set my loaf for 2.5 lb, set light setting. I checked machine setting and it said 3:30. Then I went to the delay start and it said 13:30 which meant that it would not be ready for thirteen hours, so I decreased the time to 3:30. Then I hit the start button so that the : display started blinking. The machine started counting down and I expected it to turn on at 3:15 but it did not turn on until 3:10. (I think the factory setting has been set wrong on my machine and always has a delay start of thirteen hours instead of on delay at all. I hope this helps you.

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.

My b2300 bread maker wont start on the 15 min delay after i push the start button .......why? i hate this machine and wont recommend one to anyone.......love my old sunbeam machine which just broke down...


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 switch. Turn it to the ON position.
    2. Some models make an 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 the Select button down until the unit powers up.
    5. Some models require you press the Start button down until the unit powers up.
    6. Some models require you press the Select button first to select a mode, then press the Start button.


3. No, you were not able to confirm that your breadmaker is receiving power? Sorry to hear that. Attempt to have the breadmaker serviced by a small appliance repair facility or discard it.


4. Yes, you have confirmed that your breadmaker is receiving power? Fantastic! Now reboot the breadmaker's electronics by pressing down continuously on the Start button until you notice a visible and/or audible confirmation, usually within 5 to 10 seconds. Beware: Some models require you press the Select button first to select a mode, then press and hold the Start button to reboot the system.

That should fix it. Hope this helps!

Special Note: 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. You can do this by pressing down on the Start button continuously until you notice a visible and/or audible confirmation, usually within 5 to 10 seconds. Beware: Some models require you press the Select button first to select a mode, then press and hold the Start button to reboot the system.

How do I start the bread machine, I've followed all instructions but the machine just beeps and beeps for a long time until we unplug it


Use and Care Book for the Black& Decker All-In-One Horizontal Deluxe Automatic Breadmaker is here:

http://useandcaremanuals.com/pdf/B2300UC.pdf

It sounds like a programming error. Be sure you all following the setting and programming instructions completely and that the breadpan is propely seated in the unit.

My machine counts down time, but the paddles don't rotate, they are free to do so as I took out the pan. when I restart the setting I get a Hor notification on the time area.


That may mean that your machine is detecting that it is not at the right temp and some machines heat up for a few minutes before the paddles start to turn. Try pushing the start button for the Basic bread program and wait 5 or 10 minutes. The paddles should start to turn.....Let me know if this works thanks!

Hi, Take the pan out of the machine and see if you can turn the paddles by hand. If yes that's good...if no then paddles are sticking. Keep pan out of machine and start a kneading cycle. Look through the lid window and see if the motor shafts are turning. If no...then the belts fell off or are loose. If everything is fine then maybe it's the electronic panel. Hank

I have a brand new black and decker bread maker - used it four times....but each time the bread is very heavy, not light. I measure ingredients excactly as your recipe calls for. What is the problem Jean...


There are many ways to adjust the weight of your bread. Try any (or all) of the following:
1) a little less salt.
2) a little more water
3) a little less flour
4) add 1 or 2 tablespoons of wheat glutten
5) use the dough setting and let bread rise in bread pans for a good long time (e.g. 1.5 or 2 hours)
6) 'better for bread' yeast - stored in the refrigerator

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!

Paddle stuck inside bread


I have the B2300 bread machine as well and I have encountered the same problem as you. So, I came up with the idea of removing the paddles right after the machine has stopped mixing the dough. Whenever I bake bread at home, I tend to follow the above mentioned solution and it made my life much easier.

alieb,

If you press the menu button until the number 4 is showing, that is the sandwich setting for your bread machine.

this is the second rise period. it is ok, and at this time if you like, you can gently move the dough aside, and remove the paddles. Just remember to put a little oil on the exposed stem. This way, you can have bread without the huge holes from the paddles.
