I went to plug my bread maker in Model B2500C and it started making a funny noise. Then I moved it to a different area to see if it would work better. When I plug it in it automatically starts and won't...

These are fussy models and have lots of issues - if you are still covered under warranty just contact B & D, they were great at sending me a new model after mine broke under warranty. It sounds like yours is broken beyond repair, it is likely cheaper to replace it. Try contacting the company, they should be able to help you best.

Removing The Bottom From a Black & Decker B2300 Bread Machine

Things you will need
  1. A large clear table with lots of room to work.
  2. At least 4 small dishes to keep screws organized.
  3. A few screwdrivers - 1 or 2 Phillips head, 1 or 2 straight (slotted) with long shanks are best.
  4. A straight screwdriver to be modified
  5. Utility knife or Xacto knfe
How-To open up the breadmaker
  1. Modify a straight screwdriver by taking a dremel tool with a 1/32" or 1/64" thick cut-off wheel and grind a notch in the centre of the blade as pictured below.ianchristie1.jpgThe depth of the notch is best around 1/16" deep because there are other screws in the machine that will need this screwdriver. However for our purposes here we only need it for 2 screws
  2. Proceed to remove the screws from the bottom of the machine. There are 4 Phillips/Straight screws (can use either type) and 2 of the special screws and set to the side in a dish. The screw locations are shown below: 1=Normal Screws -- 2=Special Screwsianchristie1_0.jpgThe special screws look like:ianchristie1_1.jpg
  3. Turn the machine over and disassemble the lid by opening up the lid and removing the 5 screws shown below and set aside in a dishianchristie1_2.jpg*Note be careful when removing the metal plate, the window is made of glass and can easily fall out and break, remove carefully. Also the plastic vent is just sitting in its opening and can fall out.
  4. Once you have removed the metal plate, remove the 2 screws holding the lid to the hinges and slide the lid off the hinges, put screws with the others from the lid as they are the same. Screws shown belowianchristie1_3.jpg
  5. Remove the controls and display. There are 3 screws as shown below, they are covered by little white plugs which are most easily removed with the point of a utility or Xacto knife, put the screws and plugs in a dish.ianchristie1_4.jpgThere are also 4 clips holding the panel in place, 2 pop off easily, the last two are near the display and can be awkwardianchristie1_5.jpg
  6. Now remove the 8 screws from the bottom of the "oven" walls, locations shown below and put in a dish.ianchristie1_6.jpg
  7. There are 8 clips inside the machine that hold the top to the bottom, with any luck they won't really be holding well and you can lift the top off. Start by pulling the left side up, letting the clips pop open. While lifting the top, carefully feed the control panel through the opening below it and finish taking the cover off. If the top doesn't come off easily, you may have to remove the "oven" walls by carefully prying up the top lip. If you get stuck the seal around the outside of it can be removed as well with the use of a small screwdriver or a utility knife.
There you now have the cover off and you can have fun working on the innards of the machine.
One problem area I discovered is the main drive belt. You may want to check that if the machine suddenly stops running and you think the motor is fried. The problem is the pulley on the motor shaft can slide up towards the motor causing the belt to slide off.

Reassembly is simply the reverse of of the above procedure.

I hope this guide has helped and good luck repairing your machine.

We haven't used our Black & Decker B2200 breadmaker for a few years. When we did, liquid and uncooked flour were left at the end of the cooking process. Could this be due to lack of use? If

When your machine started kneading did you notice if the ingredients were actually mixing? Sometimes the drive belts on bread machine break and there is no mixing (the paddle doesn't spin around)

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 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.

7oz and 9 oz blinking

Unplug and then plug the machine back in. The stop light should be blinking.

Hold down the lid release lever until the lid opens up. Close the lid enough so that the sensor thinks the lid is closed, but not enough so that it actually latches closed. You'll hear a "click" where the sensor engages before the latch takes hold. Hold the lid in that position until the red stop light stops blinking, then close the lid all the way until it latches.

Press the clean button (with water in the tank) and it should begin working properly again. Good luck!
