Question about West Bend 41053 Bread & Dough Maker
We thought it was the fan belt at first ... however, when my husband took the bread machine apart he found out the it was the motor-mount sleeve ..
In order to fix the problem, you will need to take the machine apart and get to the motor ..
When you get to the motor, you will take the 4 nuts off the bottom of the motor-mounts ..
Then slide the 4 plastic sleeves out of the motor mount rubber garments ...
Grind or file an 1/8 of an inch off of the narrow end of the plastic sleeves ..
Replace the sleeves back into the rubber mount garments ..
Replace the nuts and snug them up being careful not to overtighten them ..
While you are in this far .. it would be a good time to replace the plastic fiber fan belt .. the part number is P25-236 Breadmaker Belt and you can purchase it at http://www.focuselectrics.com
The belts are the same for several of the westbend 2lb machines .. this will fit 41080 thru 41088 ..
Ok, put the housing and everything back together and your done ..
If you mechanical and careful, this should take you about an hour to complete ..'
Warning ... do not attempt to simply tighten the nuts on the bolt mounts .. this will only result in damaging the motor-mount and will not fix the problem .. you have to grind or file the sleeves 1/8 inch shorter .. there is no other way to do it ..
Hope this helps ..
