Bread Machine Not Kneading Correctly

I've been using my bread machine for about 2 years. Recently when it is kneading dough, the kneading blades seem to be working very hard. The kneading sound has become unusual, the blade does not turn smoothly. It is like my dough is too heavy to knead, but actually is not, as I'm using the same recipe (320gm flour) all the time. Previously I didn't have such a problem. I've checked, the belt still in good condition.

If the belt is fine, the motor may be going. Even though it is out of warranty I would contact the company. A machine shouldnt break after only two years.

I agree with Judy, definitely call the company and ask what they can do to help.

I will preface it with after you have made sure that there is no dough caked up anywhere....including inside the blade fitting. I never thought that could be an issue as I thought I was cleaning everything appropriately...but I took a toothpick and VERY, VERY carefully stuck it in the opening where the blade joined the machine (on the blade piece) and yuck came out...that resolved my issues and I know clean my machine much more carefully.

If you have a built in blade this then won't be your issue...but it worked for me. My machine is 19 years old and going strong!

Let us know what they tell you!

Bread Pan and paddle work fine, is clean and when I use by hand manually turn it, it work smooth as well. I've also tried turn on kneading without attached the bread pan, same problem. Seem like machine not working well, or perhaps bearing.

Maybe call the company or send them an email. 2 years old is not old for a machine and they should offer suggestions about other things to look for and possible fixes.

If it is a part (belt etc.) and they won't replace the machine and you are handy, you can see if the part is cheaper on eBay or another online venue vs. buying it from them. Let us know how it goes! Good luck!

A machine like that should not be having this kind of problem with only 2 years use. It would have been more help to us if you had given the brand name and also model if that is available.

  • I agree that your best solution may be to contact the company as they should be able to help and give you part numbers if necessary.
  • Sometimes when a bread machine breaks down it makes more sense to look for a used one at a local thrift store as they usually have some available for only a few dollars so that is something to think about.
