Hi...Before trying to take it apart, you should verify that the paddle in the bread pan is moving or not. Take the pan out of the machine and try to turn the paddle by hand. It should turn free and smooth with little effort. If you can't turn it by hand then the bearing is frozen and the bread pan needs to be replaced. (no fix for it).
If the paddle moves freely, then the belt in the bottom of the unit is loose or broken. Reply to this thread and we'll help you out!
If you baked bread in it and cannot get the paddle free, put enough water in the pan to cover the paddle and let it set for 5 or 10 min to soak the bread crust that formed between the shaft and the paddle. Then take a hold of the shaft on bottom of pan with hand or pliers to hold it still and try to work the paddle clockwise with other hand until it becomes unwedged from shaft. Sometimes it gets wedged on shaft pretty tight due to the beating against dough ball and cooked bread holds it tightly wedged.
soak the paddle in soapy water overnight with enough water to keep the paddle submerged. The next day wiggle it back and forth while holding the litte ears underneathe the pan. Move it up and down too. If it still doesn't break free go to you tube and type "how to remove a stuck bread machine paddle" have your husband do that move, but don' use more than one jug of water because the TBR15 pan is thin and can bend. Be sure your husband uses hot pads to hold the pan edges so he doesn't hurt his fingers. If that method doesn't work you will have to live with a stuck paddle or order a new pan assembly and paddle and then always remember to remove to soak your paddle after baking and remove it from the stem, clean, and store.

paddles could be slipping. that was my issue. Here's the solution if so.
What happened in my case is that the nut holding the rotor that drives the left paddle was loose, allowing the paddle to slip. Only one paddle would knead and mix. The belts in my machine are fine, in fact so massive I can't imagine them breaking. But access? Yikes.
So, forget the screws on the bottom. They just hold on the feet. Remove all the screws around the top of the baking chamber, the two that hold the control panel on, and the remaining screws under it. There are about 12 screws. Remove the 6 at the bottom of the baking chamber, but not the 2 that hold down the element. Remove the metal sides of the baking chamber (it's one piece). All this is to get access to the screws that really hold the works to the base. They're around the perimeter of the metal chassis on which the motor and element are mounted. Remove them (get help or arrange something to keep the control panel from exerting too much pull on the wires to the element. You could unplug the control unit but I didn't need to.)
Once you lift the motor assembly exposing the belts underneath, you'll see what's loose. Each nut holds down a metal plate beneath the rotor. If it gets loose, the rotor can move more or less freely and won't turn. It looks like they applied an inadequate dab of glue to hold those in place. I should have put in a star washer to keep the nut from loosening again. Next time.
Good luck getting all the screws back in the right places ;-) Machine works fine now.
Hi, Could be three things. 1) the paddle is sticking, or 2} the belt is loose or 3) the pan is not properly inserted in the machine. Take the pan out of the machine and see if you can turn the paddle freely by hand. If no...then lubricated bearing the paddle rotates on is failing. If everything is ok in the pan then the belt may be loose. Belts. pulleys and motor are located in the base3 of the machine. Remember to unplug machine before working on it. the third is self explanatory, but check with the manual to make sure. Good luck..Hank
The left blade on a BD 2300 bread maker did not turn when neading the dough. I took it apart by removing the six screws in the bottom of the case and the screws inside around the bottom outer edges of the metal insert. I then removed the screws holding the motor assembly to the base. I found that the metal plate attached to the paddle shaft driven by the gear had torn through the plastic gear, and was no longer driving the paddle. I made a new plate with the end bent down 90 degrees so that it fitted into a slot in the plastic gear. This is much stronger and the breadmaker now works fine. This is a weakness in the design and the failure could occur on either paddle. failures of the left paddle could be due to the toothed belt breaking, this drives from the right paddle gear. There is also a belt between the motor and the left paddle gear.
Hi, I usually take the paddle out of the machine at the end of the kneading cycle and before the rise cycle. (Do this with the pan out of the machine..just in case). You don't want to use anything in the pan that will scratch it. Usually a few quick taps of the bread pan on the cutting board will free the bread.

You can drill and tap the paddle, where it faces the flat on the shaft, and install a small setscrew. Something like a 10-32. Make sure you use a nylok screw or use a thread locking compound (available @ auto parts stores) to prevent the screw from working loose and getting into your bread! Just tighten the screw enough for a snug fit so that it can be removed for cleaning.
