Hi, I'm Rory from eSpares, and in this video I'm going to show you how to replace the belt in an LG breadmaker.

Now if the kneading blade inside the bread pan isn't rotating while the breadmaker is in use, it's almost certain that the problem is with the belt. The good news is though, that it's really easy to replace. Safety first: do make sure that your breadmaker is unplugged before you get to work. The first thing I'm going to do is remove the bread pan.

And now I just need to turn the breadmaker upside down. Because I need to remove these six Phillips screws, to remove the bottom panel from the breadmaker. So here we can see the old belt. This one is actually fine and wouldn't need replacing but I'm going to show you how to do it anyway. To get the old one off just lift it off like that, and spin, and it comes off.

And now to fit the new one. Don't be fooled by these teeth here, they actually go on the outside, because the inside is ridged and that fits nicely with this spindle here. So just chuck it round the spindle and then feed it round the wheel and turn and then it goes on.

Give it a few spins just to make sure it's running true. And now all that remains for me to do is put the bottom panel back on and we're all done.

And that is how easy it is to replace the belt on in a LG breadmaker. Belts for most make and model of breadmaker are available on the eSpares website.
