Question about Breadman TR555LC Bread Maker
I took the bread out of the bread maker. I pulled the paddle out. Then I tested the spindle post that holds the paddle to see if it would turn. It won't budge, not even with the turning handle on the bottom of the machine. What should I do? Put hot water in the bucket and soak it?
It may be hard to turn by hand but does it turn when the machine is
turned on? If so it is OK even if you can't turn it by hand

SOURCE: Bread sticks to pan
May be that the coating on the pan is just wearing off. Had the same problem several years ago and it was just that the poor old machine was over used and the simplest solution was to buy a new pan. That machine went though 2 of them before it died its self.

SOURCE: The shaft that turns the paddle
There is a small clip on the bottom it speads to loosen it off the shaft if this is missing a clip can be obtained at a auto parts store and then you will be back in business.
Put the shaft out and clean and oil it with olive oil, peanut oil or wok oil.
Then put it back together.

SOURCE: removing finished bread from pan
Before the baking cycle begins,remove the bread pan ,shake out the batter onto a piece of waxed paper,remove the paddle from the bread pan,place batter back into the pan,close lid.This way you only have a small hole in the finished loaf. I prefer the 1.5 pound rye bread,and set a kitchen timer for 2 hours 5 minutes-when the "shape" cycle finishes,we remove the paddle.
This is listed in my manual on page 76,item # 7;heading is METHOD.
Front of the manual lists the times for the cycles,just add them up.
(When you dump the batter back into the pan,try to pat down the rough edges,it looks better).

I had the same problem with my Breadman TR845. I made the first loaf O.K. but the knead paddle would not turn much when it had flour in the bread pan. I took it apart and discovered that the timing belt had slipped off the black plastic gear attached to the shaft of the motor. The belt was still around the shaft of the motor which allowed it to move the paddle a little. I needed a small spacer washer that would keep the black plastic gear from sliding on the shaft and allowing the belt to slip off. There is lip only on one side of the plastic gear so if it moves the belt can slip off. I created a spacing washer from the cap on a tube of toothpaste. I cut the toothpaste cap in half and had to use a metal file to get it the right size. It needed to be 1/4 inch tall and 3/4 inch in diameter. I cut the space so that it could slip over the shaft. After putting it all back together everything works fine. And the toothpaste tube was almost empty anyway.
P.S. There are lots of screws that hold it together and the belt and gears are at the bottom of the Breadman and you have to take the whole thing apart to get to the bottom. I was able to leave all the wires attached so that putting it back together went quickly compared to the work of taking it apart.
