Let pan and loaf cool for about 10-15 mins then try to slide it out then. Also you can very gently ease a plastic knife around the top of the bread, to see if this helps.

I don't know about your specific model, but in most bread makers there is a removable paddle that goes in the bottom of the bread pan after you put that in the machine. The paddle usually has a flattened side on the hole which slides on to the post sticking up from the bottom of the machine. If you look at the post straight down from above it should be D shaped. The usual procedure is to put the pan in the machine, install the paddle, and then add your ingredients. Assuming you are doing this and it is still not working, trying running it through a mix only cycle (like for pizza dough) with the machine empty to see if the paddle is engaging and spinning properly. If it is not, contact the manufacturer for assistance.

Replacement parts for all West Bend Bread Machines (and other products) are available online at Focus Electrics, which now handles the West Bend line of products.

If you do not know what model of machine you have, the model number can be found in the middle of the sticker on the back of your machine. The number will be somewhere in the range of 41026 to 41200 and it may be followed by one or letters.

The knead bar or paddle is taken out after the bread is finished baking and the loaf is removed from the bread pan.

It's a little bit dented but will work fine. I would sell for 15.00 and free shipping in the U.S by United parcel service.

Power-Up/Start-Up Issues:

  1. Unplug the breadmaker.
  2. Confirm the power source you're drawing from is live using a blender, toaster, etc.
  3. Plug the breadmaker in, unplug it, then plug it in a second time.

    1. Some models have a built-in off/on toggle power switch. Be sure it's turned on.
    2. Most models confirm power by making an audible beep when plugged in.
    3. Most models have a colored light and/or a lighted display screen that lights up.
    4. Most models require you press down on the Stop button until the unit powers up.

E. Some models require you press down on the Start button until the unit powers up.

F. Some models require you press down on the Select button until the unit powers up.

G. Many models require you select a baking mode by pressing the Select button before the pressing the Start button.

Q: In the end, were you able to confirm your breadmaker is receiving power?

No. Sorry to hear that. Have it serviced by a small appliance repair shop or simply discard it.

Yes. Fantastic! Now reboot the electronics by pressing down on the Stop button for 1 to 5 seconds. Note: A few models require you press down on the Start button instead. And even fewer require you press down on the Select button instead.

Often the + and - Delay Timer buttons are pressed by mistake, delaying Start by up to 12 hours. If you suspect this handy feature has been engaged accidentally, you'll need to reboot the breadmaker's electronics. See reboot directions above.

Note: All breadmakers use a belt and pulley system. If your breadmaker powers-up but the mixer won't turn during the kneading cycles, your timing belt is probably broken. You'll need to disassemble the breadmaker to visually confirm. The belt and pulley assemblies are located at the bottom of your breadmaker.

I maintain a database of bread machine manuals. I have checked my files and I do have an electronic copy of your bread machine manual. I charge a small fee for the work that goes into finding, scanning, creating, maintaining and providing them. If you are interested email me at

[email protected]

As a" thank you" I will include an electronic copy of one my bread machine archived recipe books as another attachment to the email.

Be sure to show the maker and model # of your bread machine in the email so I know which one to send. I get many requests and I need to know which machine manual you need.

Thanks, and Happy Baking!
