20 Most Recent Black & Decker B2250 Bread Machine Questions & Answers


Recommend you go ahead and put your raisins in with all the rest of the ingredients in the beginning. Raisins are pretty tough so I don't think they will just puree. Please let me know if this solve the problem.

Not quite sure what you mean about rotating shaft, but if you take the bread pan out of the machine and try to turn the paddle by hand and it doesn't move, then the sealed bearing in the bread pan is jammed or broken. Try filling it up with warm water and soaking it for a while. If it doesn't budge after a few tries then the bearing is broken and a new bread pan is needed. If on the other hand it does move, keep the pan out and start a kneading cycle. Look through the lid window and check to see if the motor shaft is turning. If not then the belt inside the machine is snapped, or fell off, or the motor is broken. Good Luck...Hank

I just bought a new b2250 machine from Zellers for $59 dollars, they also have the b2000 for the same price. It's not worth your time to mess around trying to fix these things.

You're using a fast-acting type of yeast instead of the standard active dry yeast. It's a very common mistake made even more common by the erroneous bread machine recipe writers.

Here are the rules concerning bread machines and the yeasts they love the most:

Use standard active dry yeast for all your standard-rise bread recipes.

For the fast-bake white bread recipes use only fast-acting dry yeast.

Fast-bake type mode selections are available on most newer models and the custom recipes provided in their instruction manuals are the only ones you should use. You should never experiment with recipe ingredients and their portions when using the fast-bake mode on any breadmaker.

P.S. Always refrigerate your yeast with a close eye on the expiration date.

When using grocery-bought bread mixes always substitute the yeast packet provided with fresh active dry yeast. Tip: A packet (or "sachet") of standard active dry yeast contains 2-1/4 teaspoons.

Hope this helps.

Check the type of flour you are using. In the US, if you are using white flour you need to select the type that is labelled "for bread". Also, do not open the lid while the bread is supposed to be rising or you will make it fall. It needs to have a steady temperature while it is rising. Also, make sure that the measured quantities are quite precise. The heavier the ingredients the harder it is to make the dough rise. Adding a little extra water can help.

Hi, A bread machine made 14 years ago was of very high quality. Black & Decker does not make bread machines anymore, but buys them in a foreign country and slaps the Black & Decker name on it. The program may be different, the heating element may have changed, and possibly the paddle size and time of kneading and cycle times could have have changed. You will have to experiment some more ( I know you have, and it's expensive and frustrating) to change settings to try and make it work for you. Talk to your friends who may have a bread machine and try it on theirs, or give me the recipe and I'll try it on my Sunbeam...that would be interesting. Hank

That probably means your breadmaker is too hot from the last loaf. Breadmachines always need to cool down for about 1/2 before the next loaf is baked.

your belt has probably come off or it has snapped. unplug your machine and take the bottom panel off if you want to try to replace it yourself.

Hi. The "washer" is actually a sealed bearing that the paddle rotates in. That bearing has failed and you will need a new bread pan. Hank

Hi,
I buy and sell bread machines and have run in to your problem many times. Just log on to you tube and type in,,,,,,,,,,,How to Remove a Stuck Bread Machine Paddle or Kneading Blade"
You will need ...2 hotpads, an old shoelace or string about 3 feet long and 2 old milk jugs, detergent botlles etc......something that will provide weight than you can tie the string to. Tie the string tightly around the post and knot it tight.....the string goes in the little gap between the bottom side of the paddle and the pan. The other end is tied to the milk jugs....watch the video and it will make sense....

Here's a good basic white bread recipe that works great with a BD2550 (and usually doesn't even **** the mixing blade off of the bottom of the machine)

1 cup warm (not hot) water
1/3 cup milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 tablespoons butter/margarine
4 cups flour
1 teaspoon yeast

Heat the water and add the milk to it. Dissolve the sugar and salt into this mix and pour the liquid into the bottom of the bread maker bucket (make sure the mixing blade is already in). Melt and add the butter to this mix. Add the 4 cups of flour directly on top, but do not mix it in. The flour will float on top of the liquid. Make a small dimple in the top of the flour in the middle with your finger and add the yeast into that little crater (at no point while adding ingredients do you let the yeast touch the liquid). Set the bread maker for basic setting 1, light crust, 2lb loaf and let it do it's thing. 3 hours later, you'll have a nice loaf of white bread with good consistency and density, and it usually leaves the mixing blade in the bucket (rather than having to dig it out of the loaf after).

Hope this helps!

Hi..gently tap the pan on a bread board. Don't tap so hard as to bend the pan...just a couple of quick taps in a few places. Hank

I don't have your manual but often these kind of alerts mean the chamber is either too hot or too cold to begin baking. If you have been baking you need to let your machine cool off with the lid open for about half and hour before starting another loaf...
