The drive belt on my kitchen pro breadmachine has broken. Its a toothed belt and I have not got the model #
Is it a Regal Kitchen Pro? If so, it should say so on the housing of the machine.
Follow the instructions on how to measure for a belt below. I used yarn because it gives a little, and just using a measuring tape would not give as precise a measurement.
Remove the safety cover from the bottom of the machine, exposing the wheel and drive shaft (it's easy, that's all you will see, those two parts) and run yarn around them, pull it snug, knot it, cut the yarn, remove the yarn, stretch the yarn a little on a measuring tape or yardstick, that is the length belt you need. If your machine is a k6725 it will measure 23 and a half inches. Proceed as below.
If the measurement is different, you have a different model, maybe. Google the measurement you get and the words bread machine belt, and see what you can find. Good Luck, read below how I fixed my Regal machine, which I got for free, with an Oster belt, for $14.90.
My Regal Kitchen Pro 6725 Breadmaker belt was in tiny rotten pieces...I wound a piece of yarn around the wheel and drive shaft (lie the machine on a kitchen counter, lid open and hanging down off of the counter, bottoms up, and remove the screws from the teardrop shaped brass colored safety cover, remove the cover and expose the wheel and drive shaft) pull the yarn tight and knot it. Then cut the yarn about an inch from the knot. Measure the yarn when pulled on a little. Mine measured 23.5"....I then googled bread machine belt 23.5" and up came one for an Oster Bread Machine (The one I was repairing was a Regal Kitchen Pro 6725) from totalvac.com located at 2 De Bush Ave Unit A8 Middleton, MA 01949
It was $7.95 for the belt, $6.95 S & H to a VA address, total cost $14.90 so I decided to give it a shot. When it got here, I removed the safety cover, held the machine up and shook as much of the old rotten rubber belt pieces out as I could, and replaced the belt by placing it over the sticky string on the drive shaft and teasing it over the wheel. It is an exact fit. Be sure the ribbed side of the belt is down against the wheel. Screw the cover back on and run it through a dough cycle so that the belt will get coated with the sticky stuff from the sticky string on the drive shaft. Until the belt is coated, it will turn the mixing blade, but it will slip. Hope this helps. Patti
