Question about Black & Decker B1561 Bread Maker

B&D Bread maker all in one

It seems to be having problems kneading.  The paddle does not mix all the flour.  The paddle seems stiff to turn when the container is empty.  Can it be lubed from the outside?

    it wont knead

  • Anonymous May 19, 2009

    Mine is that it labours and does not seem to knead the dough as much as it needs. I have increased the liquid in my recipes by 1 or 2T and that has helped a lot.

I think the problem is that the bushing - the tubing that the paddle passes through - wears down (corrosion) and jams after a few years. I took mine apart and found that was the case. So a new pan has to be ordered. I'm trying that out now via the B&D 1-800 number.

Kneading blade comes off during breadmaking process


Yes, if the blade come off then your bread is not going to mix and knead properly. The blades on all makers are designed to slip on and off though so you can remove them for cleaning etc. Be sure you are pushing the paddle all the way on. If it still comes off when mixing that would be very odd as the weight of the dough ball itself helps keep paddles on. I have owned dozens of machines by different manufacturers and never had a paddle come off in process.

I have had a Panasonic breadmaker from Jan 2009 and it has been in regular use without problems. Recently on several occasions (not consecutive) the dough paddle has become detached during the mixing...


The kneading blade on the Panasonic bread makers is designed to fit loosely. If the dough is 'stiff' the kneading blade may stay in the bread when the loaf is removed from the pan. Allow the bread to cool completely before removing the blade carefully. Some types of flour absorb more water than others, so you can try adding an extra 10 - 20ml of water next time to see if this results in a slightly less 'stiff' dough.

This problem can also be caused if crust has built up underneath the blade. Make sure to wash the blade and its spindle after each use.

Trust this is helpful. Thank you for using FixYa!

I bought the bread maker last night and it doesn't seem to mix the dough. I have spots of flour and salt in the dough. It seems like there is a paddle or something that is missing. Do you know if I am...


There is supposed to be a removable small paddle in bottom of pan.
If it's not there, you will not get dough at all. Just wet flour.
If paddle is there, but you have half way dough.. AND you followed directions exactly, machine has a problem. Take it back for refund or exchange.

My paddle keeps coming off when the dough is mixing. What's up with that?


Your paddle is probably worn out and has too much play in it. Some play is necessary to get it off for cleaning but it shouldn't be so loose it is coming off during kneading.

My chefmate breadmaker - The liquid and flour don't get mixed..


Hi,
Even though you hear the paddle moving, the belt may be slipping so the paddle does not rotate at full force. Please check the tension of the belt. You can access the motor, belt, pulley assembly inside the base of the machine. Also, please check to make sure the kneading cycle is run fully. Check the manual to see length of cycle. Good Luck...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,
It seems the kneading paddle isn't spinning. Clean out the pan and take it out of the machine. Put the paddle on the shaft and see it it spins freely. If it does not, then the shaft is stuck or the bearing is frozen.

Next keep the pan out of the machine and start the bread maker up. Look through the clear top and see if the shaft is spinning. If not then the drive belt is broken.

If paddle is okay, and belt is okay, then the motor is broken.

The ingredients aren't mixing. I have to take the dough out and


My experience with the machine is that it kneads perfectly, but you have to use ACTIVE DRY YEAST instead of another kind of yeast, and you have to throw the ingredients into the pan in order - do not mix the ingredients at all - just pour them in, and let the machine do the mixing. Except for substituting between BREAD FLOUR and WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR, do not substitute any other ingredients. This one is very picky about the type of ingredients that you use - not for the innovator :-)

TR440 Breadman won't begin kneading once "start" button is pushed


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.

I wish they would mention this in the book!!!

What is a kneading paddle in tr441breadman


It mixes the dough. All you do is put the ingredients into the bread maker, turn it on and wait. It will do all the work for you.
