Why does my bread maker start mixing when powered on?
My breadmaker is a Girmi, mod. MP10, bought second-hand.
It worked fine for a month or two, but has started to act weird lately.
When plugged in, the mixer starts turning, usually slowly, like when motors look for a home position.
The stop button does nothing to stop it. Sometimes it will do it for some time, sometimes it will come to a stop.
The last time it made a loaf of bread, it finished the program, got to 00:00, and started mixing again, making a large hole in the bottom of the loaf.
Where should I start investigating?
It looks like an electrical or electronic problem, but I cannot think what would cause it to behave in this fashion.
It looks like a bad design defect too, because machines should not start moving when powered on.
The motor is a 230V DC motor. It looks as if some current is leaking into the motor. The electronics are full size board components. There is no obvious damage to the components.
