I just bought a Black & Decker B2300 bread machine. I washed and put in the paddles, recipe ingredients, and followed the directions to set on dough cycle.

Well the paddles don't do anything, but the timer is counting down. Help?

Turn the machine over and unscrew the bottom. You probably need to replace a belt.

The last time I used the machine everything worked fine, but now the paddles won't turn when the cycle begins. I can turn them by hand; no problem. How can I fix this? My machine is a Black and Decker all in one B2300.

Your problem could be a broken or thrown drive belt on your machine. Check your drive belt by unplugging your machine, turning it on its side, and use a screwdriver to take out the screws on the bottom panel. Look for the belt that runs between two pulleys.


There should be a large pulley and a smaller one. If the belt has slipped off it should be easy to reset back on the pulley. However, if the belt is broken or has a small crack in the belt, it needs to be replaced.

The paddles won't turn right away on setting #3, unless I jiggle or open and close the cover. Then if lucky the paddles seem to turn fine.

Is there a switch associated with the door, or does this have to do with positioning of the paddles?

Black and Decker customer services used to be one of the best out there: 1 (800) 231-9786.

I haven't had to call for a while (it was for a drill, but they were still helpful).


Give them a call and see what they say! Hope it is a super easy fix! Post back with an update!
