This site has bands/belts for breadmakers. I am buying my new paddle for the tr900s breadman pro from there. Perhaps your belt is broken? I personally have never replaced one, but it should not be too hard. Make sure you unplug the breadmaker before opening it up at all.
Try running the breadmaker with no pan in it and see if the paddle shaft turns at all during the cycle. Also, the paddle will not turn at all in the first 30 minutes of certain cycles, like the whole wheat. This is stated on the time chart of the instruction manual for this model.

I just purchased this 2 days ago and started to use it. I noticed the bread pan would wobble and was noisy during the kneading cycle. On the second use the paddle came off during the kneading cycle. Being a service technician all my life, I started to analyze the problem. I was previously surprised how loose the bread pan fitted into the bread maker and suspected there should be something to support the pan and hold it in place. I could not see anything obvious, but after looking carefully I noticed spring clips on the bottom of the bread pan, and also mating spring clips in the bottom of the bread maker. If I pushed the bread pan down fairly hard into the bread maker the bread pan would snap firmly in place. This stopped the wobbling during the kneading cycle and the paddle coming off. I could not find anywhere in the manual where it explained the bread pan must be pushed firmly down into place until it snaps in. The manufacturer should explain this to their customers on their website.
Unplug your machine first....You may have to turn the machine on its side and take off the bottom panel and look in there to see if you belt has come off or if the belt has snapped. Be sure it is unplugged if you do this!
If the belt has snapped you will have to replace it, .............if it has slipped off see if there is a loose screw or missing screw that held the belt in place and put the belt back on and secure it in place with that screw etc.
Hi, The situation you speak of is common for ALL bread machines. You want the paddle to come off freely so it won't get stuck on the motor spindle. You can take the paddle out of the machine after the final kneading cycle and before final rise. This will prevent a big hole in the bread. If your machine does not have a pause cycle, take the pan out of the machine to remove the paddle to be safe. Hank
Hi, Either the paddle is frozen in the bread pan ( take pan & paddle out of machine and see if you can turn it by hand), or the belt has fallen off or has snapped. (Keep the bread pan out of the machine & run a knead cycle, look through the lid window and see if the motor shaft spins. Hank
Hi, If the motor shaft is not spinning with the bread pan out of the machine it could be the belt has fallen off the pulley, or has snapped. The belt and pulley are inside the base of the machine. Hank
No, Everything should be done automatically. It seems that the machine did not knead the dough. Two things may have caused this. 1) The paddle is frozen and wont turn. Take the pan out of the machine and see if you can rotate the paddle by hand. If yes...that's cool, if no then the sealed bearing that the paddle rotates on is jammed or broken. Try filling the pan with warm water and let it soak. If after a few times it's still frozen, then the bearing is broken and bread pan needs to be replaced. 2) Belt fell off or is snapped. Keep the pan out of the machine and go to a kneading cycle. Look through the window on the lid and see if the motor shaft is turning. If no... the belt fell off or snapped, or the motor is broken. Good luck..Hank
Hi Mindy.......it takes 30 minutes to PREHEAT this silly machine for wheat bread. I thought I did something wrong, too........I stopped it twice after it preheated for about 15 minutes. I did not want to waste anything so I let it stay in the machine.....I just went to check the machine and it started after 30 minutes of preheating.
Me too! I have to bend the two metal pieces on the sides out before every use - they are pretty flexible, you won't break them. Just bend out and they hold the pan in for a use or two. Not an elegant solution, I admit, but it works.
When you place contents in pan with some machines it is important to place contents
in a particular order. I should try to keep contents away from the kneading blade as you place them.
Another thing that might possibly help is to put a litter olive oil around the blade before adding ingredients.
