My Panasonic machine has been producing excellent loaves on automatic
for some time. The last time I used it , the machine did not knead the
dough but baked it anyway.You can guess the result!. It kneads the
dough on the pizza setting ok and will then bake if I switch to Bake.
It sounds like a programmer error.It started with the prog. window
saying'Reset'. This has now disappeared, with the display back to
normal, but left me with the foregoing problem. Any ideas?.

Re: Panasonic bread machine SD253. Programmer
The only thing you can do for these machines is the following:
first, if the unit is always plugged in, disconnect it for at least an hour. This may reset it.
I doubt there are parts...but if you disassemble the unit and cycle all of the connectors, you may get lucky. IF parts exist, you'll likely need a timer module.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I have several recipe books for bread machines. You can use just about any book from other models as long as you follow recipes for your size machine. I.E. 1.0 pound loaves, 1.5 pound loaves, 2.0 loaves. Just be sure you choose the right loaf size when you program your machine and that your machine has the capacity to make the size loaf you want.
can you send me a copy of the recipe you are using? ingredients and amounts and the name of the recipe? I may be able to figure it out that way. Also include the type of flour you are using..all purpose...or bread flour etc....
Most bread machine manuals include a wealth of information about how to
use the models so that they work at their best and produce great loaves
of bread. Many manuals also have a troubleshooting section near the end.
Before you contact customer service or attempt to take apart your
machine, read the manual completely and try restoring your machine to
its original settings, testing it again, and finally trying the repair
ideas offered in the troubleshooting section.
If you've misplaced your
manual, you may be able to find a down loadable copy on the
If the problems you're having relate to your finished loaves of bread
rather than to your bread machine itself, you might be able to solve
them by experimenting with the machine's settings or the ingredients in
your bread. For example, expired yeast could result in a loaf that
doesn't rise, and especially warm weather could mean a loaf that will
sink in the middle.
Play around with ingredient amounts and types to see
if your loaves improve when you use certain combination or settings.
You can also experiment with the machine itself, disassembling its parts
and putting it together again after you attempt to locate the problem.
If your bread machine is still under warranty, customer service
representatives from the manufacturing company should be able to offer
you online or telephone assistance. If you're not able to resolve the
issue over the phone, you may be able to send your machine back to the
manufacturer for free or low-cost repairs.
Even if you don't have a
warranty for your machine, you can still contact the manufacturer for
troubleshooting assistance and repairs, although you may have to pay a
fee. You can also search for appliance-repair centers in your area and
check to see if any of them handle bread machines.
i got this bread maker for x mas as well and had to make a few loaves before i figured it out... i made a loaf the other day and it worked out perfect.... for the basic sandwich bread i just used lukewarm water, 5 cups of flour, and 3/4 tsp of yeast and it turned out perfect.... hope this can help out....
you may need to let it cook longer. it sounds like it's the heating element not working as it did when it was new. can you clean the interior, especially anywhere you don't usually clean after making bread? even the slightest build-up of dust/dirt/crumbs etc, will keep the breadmaker from making bread as it did.
We have owned a Panasonic bread maker for ten years and gets used twice a week to make bread using "spelt " flour.About three years ago the bread maker was producing flat loaves,and was very heavy.We contacted bread making company called "Simply No Knead"and asked for there advise,as we were following the same recipe and method for around six years. They suggested that we add a little more water,and this would fix the problem.We tried this and the bread still failed to rise,so we rang them again .This time they said that we need a new bearing in the bread maker and that would fix it.We did this at a cost of $40 and still no good.This happened over a period of several months.We suggested to them that there must be something wrong with the flour,which they denied.After checking the labels on the packaging we noticed that they were using flour from another country [ I think it was Hungary ],because they had run out of suppies from Australian wheat produces. The flour was far to old,and bread won't rise if the flour is to old. As soon as they started using Australian produced flour again the bread improved dramatically.
