My wife Tesco BM10 electric bread maker after using for 3 years plus, suddenly the drive shaft malfunction and not moving accordingly with noisy sound.
When I check the bread maker bottom, many plastic debris came out, I suspect the drive shaft belt/pulley worn out.
To replace the belt is quite simple:
- Take out the pan and the kneading paddle. Reverse the maker. Removes 6 screws. (*2 middle special screws)
2. Reverse the maker again, open the cover, unscrew all the bottom screws.
4. Unscrew and flip over the drive shaft, and u will see the broken belt.
5. The belt is totally melt and need to clean up.
The belt is not very hard to replace and cost around RM20+/- only. Thus, u can try replace it without buying a new bread maker.
