Question about Black & Decker B2000 Bread Maker
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.

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:
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.
