Re-awakening an old thread,

So, I picked up one of these for a tenner off GT, it's a Breville Breadman with the big block 425W motor.

Can I just ask, if I remove the blue and yellow from the board and connect to the mains with a switch, I'm good to go? (w/ earths intact)

I don't want to seem patronising (God knows how guilty I've been in this department) but if you're not completely sure what you're doing with mains power wiring at least get someone who is to check it over - preferably a sparky. 240 volts can be unforgiving and even if it "works" the next person (or child) who comes along can get a rude shock.

Hey cepticwhat sort of motor is that?
It looks nice and neat and a complete package
I’ve also been looking at a similar type of motor on eBay for about $14 12v 120rpm that also has a 10kg torque

It is the base housing from an old Kambrook Bread Maker that I purchased new in '97. I replaced it with aI$10 salvo's machine that makes bigger loaves.

Using the existing housing keeps the motor and reduction pulley in alignment. The motor cover is the aluminium bread pan with switch added and vent holes drilled. I wanted to try this option, using an 8mm to 10mm spider coupler, as it minimised the sideways torque on the pulley, removed mounting issues and allowed me to enclose the belt, 240v and other bitey bits.

Here are some pics of how I mounted the housing on the bamboo base board that came with the mill. I had to cut and notch the base board to mount the casing. A hammer sorted out the aluminium bread-pan mounting points.

The thread that (hopefully) keeps on giving.

All pics will be put on at the end.

Picked up a breville bread maker today and just ripped it apart. The cap has no tabs just 2 wires soldered directly to the motor see pics.

Any help on this side of things would be appreciated.
Cheers

AC1=Active 240V in
AC2= Neutral out
M01 and M02 are power to the motor.

Unscrew and remove the Blue and brown wires from that terminal block (Otherside of the 240 v plug) and cut the wires at M01 and M02 and screw them into the terminal block (Either way is fine) Turn the power on and the motor should work.
You then just need to add a switch on the active (Brown wire)

Gutted the bm and made a start on the motor mount bracket by utilising the original bracket redrilled, need to fold up some alloy sheet to raise the mill so the drive wheel clears the base board.
