One of the kneading blades is stuck and won't turn at all. It seems one of the turning shafts on the bread pan is stuck and not turnable. The other turns freely. Could you please tell me how to solve this problem?
Thanks a lot for the help.
Black and Decker does not have the necessary replacement part (I called them). Also difficult getting access to it: removing inner liner is necessary for access to screws going down into base. Gluing would involve using one that can also withstand heat. So any ad hoc repairs are not recommended.
My last breadmaker, a Hitachi, lasted 5 years. I tossed it because it was a vertical loaf type. No Black and Decker for me, not even the newer model. All things, it seems, are to be replaced after their warranty period ends with newer one.

Hi, Take the pan out of the machine and see if you can turn the paddles by hand. If yes that's good...if no then paddles are sticking. Keep pan out of machine and start a kneading cycle. Look through the lid window and see if the motor shafts are turning. If no...then the belts fell off or are loose. If everything is fine then maybe it's the electronic panel. Hank
this is the second rise period. it is ok, and at this time if you like, you can gently move the dough aside, and remove the paddles. Just remember to put a little oil on the exposed stem. This way, you can have bread without the huge holes from the paddles.
