Question about Cuisinart CBK-200 Bread Maker
My black and decker bread maker has a skunky smell... I wonder if the belts are all sourced form the same place? Has anyone found a solution for this? The smell is really bad in my kitchen!

I think I was able to remove the smell by opening the bottom and cleaning everything I could get to with vinegar. In the future I will be very careful to not spill anything inside.

Hmmm... I'm back again. My machine still smells terrible! I live in a relatively small, open plan apartment and this bread machine is smelling up the place. I am very unhappy with this because I am otherwise pleased with the bread it makes.
I removed the bottom plate to see what is causing the smell. I have NO doubt whatsoever that the problem is the rubber belt, which I believe controls the kneading paddle. I've taken to leaving it outside to air but am stumped for a permanent resolution.
Any remedies for stinky rubber that I've come across involve liquids, heat or powders etc.. just things in general that wouldn't be prudent near the electrical panel, as well as not wanting to take the risk of damaging the machine and having it stop working altogether.
I got it at Costco in January, no hope of returning it there. Has anyone contacted Cuisinart about this? I wonder if they are aware of the issue if it seems to be widespread. I am in Ontario.
What happened with the B&D? Did the problem ever resolve? Irony is that I had returned a smelly B&D in order to get the Cuisniart! Same problem, but IMO I think it was worse with the B&D and the Cuisinart is a better machine over all (if it didn't smell so bad!)
