Question about Breadman TR520 Bread Maker

1 Answer

Display window is unreadable

The window writing is dark grey on a darker grey background... even with a flashlight, under bright lights and a magnifying glass we are unable to ready anything in the window. And whose idea was it to print the instructions on the top of the bread machine is white writing on a butter yellow pale background... it is also impossible to read. The manual shows where there is supposed to be writing above and below the window... part of the writing includes which size of loaf can be chosen to bake and another part of the writing indicates a choice of crust colors. But you can't see the white writing on almost white background and if there is any writing in the display window with arrows to indicate your choice, it is unreadable. And yes, I did remove the film covering the window after it arrived.

I found this site online as a possible answer to my problem with the Breadmaker. I was hoping for assistance. No answers were given as to whether there is a backlight that is not workable on this machine. Instead I do seem to suddenly be receiving dozens of spam mail and requests from this site to pay for a premium assistance plan if I want an answer. No thank you.

Crust is dark and tought

Do you have a crust color selector button? If yes, be sure to choose "Light" crust. If no, then you can try using milk in place of water. That will result in a softer less dense crust.

Hard crust

Hello roszejon,

Dark crusts are usually a result of heat being too high, too long, and sometimes also a function of the chemistry of the bread. Since you're setting it on "light", either your breadmaker needs repair/recalibration, or there's something about the recipe. Odds are that the breadmaker needs repair.

If I can be of further assistance, or if you have questions about any of my response(s), please let me know before rating me.

If this solves the issue, please rate it accordingly. My goal is to earn a "FixYa" rating from everyone I help.

Thanks for using,

1st time w/ Cuisinart bread maker

There's a little arrow in the LCD screen that changes from 1, 1.5, and 2 lbs when you press loaf. There is also one for light, medium, and dark crust. Each time you press either button, the arrow will change which setting it's pointing to.

If you're using it in an area with low lighting, try using a flashlight (I have to do that on mine).
