Question about Regal Ware GL2850 Bread Maker
This is a brand new machine. I used it for the first time and happened to look inside while it was kneading the dough and noticed that the paddle had come off. I stopped the machine, put the paddle back on, but when I check it a few minutes later, it was off again. Neeless to say the bread did not come out. Any ideas?
If the paddle doesn't have the power to knead, you're probably losing torque at one or more of several points:
1) Where the paddle attaches to the shaft (is there evidence of slippage/wear in the paddle socket?),
2) Where the shaft goes through the pan (possible friction point - presumably this is what you oiled)
3) The belt might be slipping, either due to friction in the shaft, or because the belt is worn and loose.
You need to determine if the shaft is sticking, and if it's because it's bent (fairly unlikely) or if there's something fouling it. You'll need to isolate and fix that first. If you can rotate the shaft freely, then we look at (1) and (3) above - these are simple parts replacements, but the shaft would be more involved.
Belts are getting tough to find - if you can provide specs/measurements, I'm going to start contacting a small-run manufacturer to see about making some new belts, as I'm seeing multiple online requests for belt parts. If you happen to have a broken one, I'd like to get one as a sample to send to a manufacturer.
