My Black & Decker B2300 breadmaker has two paddles, and when the bread is finished kneading, the dough often ends up all on one side of the pan. As a result, when baking is finished, the loaf is often unevenly risen and winds up quite misshapen, all the way over to one end or the other of the pan, and not evenly distributed. How can I make sure the loaf rises in the middle of the pan?
I can't get my dough to rise all the way. I can't figure out what is wrong. Ive tried differt yeast,flour,made sure the water is the right temp. and the rest of the ingredients. Maybe my machine isn't working right please email me with some solutions

Hi, Take the paddle out of the machine at the end of the last kneading cycle and before final rise.. Use pause or take pan out of machine to remove paddle. OR... spray the shaft with a small amount of olive oil. This should allow paddle to come out when bread is done. You will have to fish the paddle out of the bread in this step. Hank
Hi, The situation you speak of is common for ALL bread machines. You want the paddle to come off freely so it won't get stuck on the motor spindle. You can take the paddle out of the machine after the final kneading cycle and before final rise. This will prevent a big hole in the bread. If your machine does not have a pause cycle, take the pan out of the machine to remove the paddle to be safe. Hank
Hi Chris, You can take the paddle out of the machine after the final kneading cycle and before the final rise cycle. Take the whole pan out of the machine to do this to be safe, or use a pause button if you have one. Hank
Hi, Take the bread pan and paddle out of the machine and see it you can spin the paddle freely by hand. If no, then the sealed bearing is frozen or broken. If yes keep the pan out of the machine and start a kneading cycle. Look through the lid window and see if the motor shaft is spinning. If no then the belt fell off or snapped, or the motor is broken.

I had the same problem. I find the loaves to be a much better size if I just use program setting 8 - Dough then put the dough in 2 regular bread pans or on cookie sheets (bagetts), let them have a second rising and finish them in the convection oven at 350 F for 21 minutes.
I have the B2300 bread machine as well and I have encountered the same problem as you. So, I came up with the idea of removing the paddles right after the machine has stopped mixing the dough. Whenever I bake bread at home, I tend to follow the above mentioned solution and it made my life much easier.
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.
