Question about Zojirushi BBCC-V20 Home Bakery Traditional Bread Maker

1 Answer

When the blades are inserted do they have to click into place? Mine just sit loosly on the shafts--but do go completely down to the bottom of the shaft---however, the dough is not mixing or rising or baking? Is my machine completely broken? Would the heating element, blades/mixer, and control panel all go at once? I don't know how to troubleshoot this---or where to start. This has happened the last two times I attempted to make a basic bread recipe---and when the bread should be finished I opened it up and it was a blob of dough sitting on one side of the pan. I haven't tried anything to fix it. I don't know what to do.

Most bread machine paddles fit kind of loose so you can get them off for cleaning. Try turning on your machine like you were going to bake a loaf but don't put any ingredients in. Just watch, you won't hurt anything doing this, you are just trying to see if your paddles are turning or not. If they are turning then your problem is something other than the paddles.

I have the 14-Cup Cuisinart Elite Collection Food Processor. Up until recently it was working fine. Recently when using the shredder blade, when I insert food into the feeding tube the blade stops...

If the unit works OK with other attachments and the problem is only with the one cup; then the blade may be loose and spins on the shaft, the connection gear under the bottom is worn or binding up. Debris is stuck around the blade shaft or from heating up the metal parts expanded and bind when turning.

I have an oster My Blend with the blade stuck in the base. Any ideas on how to get it out? Model BLSTPB-WBL

None of these people understand your question. The blade assembly is stuck in the blender base and will not untwist out of the base. The sport bottle untwists off the blade assembly leaving it in the blender base. I've tried using pliers on mine after taking it apart. Something is binding it from untwisting. What is the trick to untwist the blade assembly off the blender base?

My john lewis mini helicopter auto stability control not flying

I had a similar problem with mine, check if the central shaft on which the blades turn hasn't become lose and is no longer engaging the gears on the underside of the helicopter.

If the whole shaft can move up and down then this probably means it has come loose, you can solve this by squeezing the lower set of blades towards the bottom gear with your fingers. You should feel the bottom blades move slightly down, if you push them too far they will stick against the main body so you might need to pull them up slightly.

Operating manual for C2006 Type 4

Sounds like the same problem. My compressor would run and pressurize to 125# but no air out the outlet. Turning the pressure reguator knob did nothing. If this is the same then here is my fix which worked great. Before you start bear in mind a new reg is under $20. Make sure the compressor has no air in it. Remove the regulator. Take a needle nose and remove the plastic insert gently from the bottom and inside of the reg. Take out the pressure spring. You should see a threaded shaft and a "c" clip. If there is no washer on the end then what is taking place is when you turn the knob in for more pressure it simply goes down through the center of the spring and exerts no pressure on the plastic insert which applies pressure to the valve. Thus no pressure. I simply removed the "c" clip, placed a generic washer placed on the end. The hole of the washer should allow it to sit on the end of the threaded end without going down the shaft and center protruding an 1/8" or so. Naturally the washer should easily fit inside the regulator housing. Now slip the "c" clip back on, back it out the knob all the way( don't force) and reassemble. Have no idea what is suppose to be in there from the factory but the problem was when I took mine apart there was nothing pushing on the spring which pushes on the nylon plastic insert which regulates the air at the outlet. Good Luck Bob F.

Blade is now loose, unconected to the rod or spindle.

I had this same problem. This is fixable if you are willing. I repaired mine because I am stubborn and I bought mine used and had no warranty. I found that if you pull out the bottom of the coffee grinder you can access the inside motor assembly. * Note, that the bottom is designed to pull out a couple inches and it acts as an electric cord caddy. You must carefully pry it all the way out. It is a good idea to put a pencil mark for reference on the bottom of the coffee grinder that lines up with the bottom lid piece you are removing because you must install the bottom lid in the same orientation in which you removed it. There is a slot where the electric cord sits in as well so pay attention as you pull it out. It is likely you will just have to yank the plastic bottom cover out. This will probably snap an internal lock tab off the bottom cover, as did happen with mine, but it still sat securely enough back inside after the repair was complete for my liking. After you fix your blade you can easily just glue the bottom cover on if you damage your lock tabs and then just do with out the cord caddy feature.(thats for little old ladies and neat freaks any way) Now that you have the bottom cover removed, Look at the motor spindle, it is in the center of the bottom of the motor. There is a slot in it. Use a screwdriver in this slot to keep it from spinning while you grab the hard plastic cone that sits on top of the grinder blade. Try putting your pliers down flush to the very bottom of the grinder before you grip the blade assembly, as it will minimize any gouging of the plastic cone on the top of the blade assembly. There are no flats on this cone so you cant use a socket or nut driver. Spin thescrew-driver counter- clockwise until the blade comes off. The blade assembly is threaded on to the motor spindle and it comes off easily. I had to lay my grinder on the floor and kneel on it to free my hands to remove the blade. So it can be done alone. Now that you have the blade off you will see that the blade has worked itself free and is just floating around in the threaded cone. Now you can either contact Bodum and demand a new blade assembly or you can repair the blade assembly as well. I cut off the plastic cone and was left with a threaded insert, I was able to configure nuts and washers and reattached the blade without the plastic cone material. It may not be as prettty but it will never break again! Like I said I am stubborn......

Loose blade, motor still running blade not moving.

Its a fault with these machines. The blade is fixed on a plastic mounting (the black hemisphere you can see on top of the blade) and this seems to wear quite quickly. So the blade is not fixed to the shaft! To fix - you have to access the end of the motor shaft. To do this, pull the base out as far as it goes(15-20mm) insert a flat screwdriver into the barbed flaps on the central plastic shaft and push gently to release (not the easiest of jobs!) once released you should see the end of the motor shaft with a flat slot. Now, you can unscrew the capping nut holding the blade. I replaced the blade assembly with the following: First, 15mm OD washer with 4mm hole onto shaft. This should sit on the shaft at the bottom of the thread. Then the blade. You'll need a washer that sits into the hole in the blade to center it on the shaft. This washer needs to be slightly thinner that or the same thickness as the blade. Thesn another 15mm washer over this followed by a lock nut or cap nut to secure. This worked perfectly for me.

If it is a dryer with the lint screen on top place the two ends of the metal loop into the two holes closest to the plastic clips on the bottom of the rack. The clip the metal bar down into the clips and the multi-bent part of the metal ring are now atteched to the bottom of the plastic rack. Turn it over and place the metal ring in to the back of the dryer and the front lip of th plastic rack then hangs loosly over the lip of the bottom of the opening of the dryer. It will all tighten up when you close the door. Hope this helps

Removing the blade on the Krups 203-45 coffee grinder

There are four little opening on the bottom through which you can see the clips. To get to the clips insert a screwdriver on the side and push one the clips inwards. Simultaneously, pull the bottom out. Repeat for other three clips. The process is not easy, I broke two of the clips. However, bottom seemed to go back on ok.

Krups 243 blender clutch wheel

These little jewels are threaded onto the motor shaft so they tighten up when in operation. To remove, you will have to immobilize the motor shaft. See if you can insert an icepick or screwdriver into the blades of the motor fan on the bottom. Then using a punch and hammer, gently tap the clutch disk in the direction opposite from its normal rotation.

BE CAREFUL not to use so much force that you break either the clutch disk or the motor fan blade.
