Question about Sunbeam 5891 Bread Maker
My machine is around 3 years old, but has been working fine. When I tried making a bread today, the kniding blade would not rotate, making a cracking sound every 2-3 seconds, as if something is stuck. If I remove the pan and switch on, the bottom motor seems to be rotating normally, so I am guessing that there is some problem with the pan and the blade. Anyone knows what might be the issue? Another question: if I just put the blade in the pan, should I be able to rotate the blade freely if I push with my finger? Currently, I am not able to rotate the blade freely in the pan (it seems to be stuck), but I haven't ever tried it, so I don't know if it should or should not.

This shouldn't have happened. Return it to the store. Don't worry about the teflon. It is not toxic. The only time it can be dangerous is when it is overheated it produces a toxic gas. Eating small pieces is harmless.

It can't be repaired. If machine is under warranty try to get a new bread pan. If not, try calling manufacturer to see if you can buy a new one.

Hi, First, the take empty pan and paddle out of the machine. Try to spin the paddle by hand. If it spins freely that's great. If it does not spin freely the sealed bearing that allows the paddle to spin has failed and you will need a new bread pan. If everything is okay, keep the pan out of the machine and go to a kneading cycle. Look through the window to see if the motor shaft is turning. If not then the belt is loose or fell off. Hank

Testimonial: "identified two possible options and gave me all the information I needed to diagnose the issue and make a decision based on that diagnosis."

If the spindle is turning and the paddle is not then your paddle is worn out and probable slipping on the spindle. If the spindle isn't turning then your problem is underneath the pan or inside the drive and your paddle may be fine.
