The Black and Decker B2200 is a breadmaker produced by Black and Decker, an American manufacturer of power tools, accessories, hardware, home improvement products, and fastening systems.
bottom side- 4 Phillips head and two security screws -open the security screws by grasping with pointed nose pliers and rotating
next step - 8 screws holding the canister onto the mixing deck open the door and with the mixing bin removed, you see the “shell” -remove all 8 screws holding this down
pop the plastic connectors holding the top plastic shroud to the base -careful note*** the buttons and display are connected from the top to the base
using a straight edge, I was able to remove the glue holding the plug for the top and then unplug the connector to free the top from the base
there are 6 screws in the base holding the mixing plate down 2 are kind of hidden between the motor and the starter capacitor —further note, you need to remove the screw for the black, rectangular starter capacitor to access the mount screw underneath
once the six screws are released, access to the underneath is fairly easy there are 4 round plastic “guides” at the corners -careful not to lose those
you can now turn the deck to access the belts and perform the replacement
Hello, you have 4 easy screws to open in the bottom of the machine but 2 other screws need a special screwdriver (screws have 2 holes in the head). This is the easiest way to do it. The other option, is to open about 10 screws from the inside of the machine so as you can access to the bottom and reach the belt. You should be very careful if you choose this option because the srews are placed in a very tight place, you may need a long screwdriver and be careful with the wires of the electronic card. I tried it. It works but I need to buy the belt. Good luck:)
