    I suppose that it requires a new heating element... Alas!

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.

Bread does not rise


Make sure you are using the correct type of yeast. The old style active dry yeast is not as good. I recommend that you try Red Star Quick Rise Instant Dry yeast. Also be sure to store the yeast in the refrigerator. And, if you are not using a mix, try King Arthur Flour, it costs a bit more, but their tighter standards means you get more consistent results. They also have bakers who will answer your questions for free at 802-649-3717.

White bread not rising


A couple of ideas. Firstly get fresh yeast, I use active dry yeast from the bulk barn, it is way cheaper than "breadmaker yeast" and I use a bit more. When I want more rise to my bread, I add an egg, which works wonders.

Every time I make a loaf of bread it overflows the pan and pushes the lid up. I have followed the recipe in the book that came with the machine. What am i doing wrong?


You're using a fast-acting type of yeast instead of the standard active dry yeast. It's a very common mistake made even more common by the erroneous bread machine recipe writers.

Here are the rules concerning bread machines and the yeasts they love the most:

Use standard active dry yeast for all your standard-rise bread recipes.

For the fast-bake white bread recipes use only fast-acting dry yeast.

Fast-bake type mode selections are available on most newer models and the custom recipes provided in their instruction manuals are the only ones you should use. You should never experiment with recipe ingredients and their portions when using the fast-bake mode on any breadmaker.

P.S. Always refrigerate your yeast with a close eye on the expiration date.

When using grocery-bought bread mixes always substitute the yeast packet provided with fresh active dry yeast. Tip: A packet (or "sachet") of standard active dry yeast contains 2-1/4 teaspoons.

Hope this helps.

I am using the old recipe from my 20 year old Black and decker book, in my new new B & D bread maker and it falls flat on top? In the old machine it rises beautifully and stays there, why? new bread...


You may find that one machine (the old one) stipulates Active Dry Yeast and the other one (new) stipulates Rapid Rise Bread Machine Yeast. What are the main differences from your old recipe and a similar recipe in your new recipe?

Bread does not rise enough I have carefully measured ingredients use rapid bake setting fleichmans rapid rise yeast checked water temp still having problems I have tried 4 times regular and rapid rise and...


A few tips.
The yeast must be absolutely fresh, use sachets instead of packets.
Keep yeast well away from the fats and liquids.
The fast rise setting will produce less rise than the full program.
You must only use strong bread flour.
Open lid immediately beep sounds.

Getting "U" shaped loaf. Center collapes during baking cycle.


sounds like a lack of yeast. Yeast maybe old. Use fresh yeast less than 3 mo. old.

Bread wont rise


I have a 20 year old Panasonic that we have used virtually every day for 20 years!  When we first got the machine we had the same problem that you are experiencing.  The trick for us was to use bottled water, we found that the chlorine in tap water killed the yeast.  The other trick that improved our bread was weighing the flour rather than measuring in cups. Until you have lots of experience, do stick precisely to the recipes.  mmmm--fresh bread!

Bread does not rise


  • Make sure it is good quality Strong White Flour (not plain flour)
  • The amount of water you use is very important. Use scales for accurate results - 1ML = 1G for water
  • Make sure the yeast is as per instructions regards type/quantity/quality.
  • Double check that you are running the correct program.
  • Always put the yeast in first, as you dont want the water in contact with water
Having failed that I would return the machine

Bread won't rise


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.

Hope this is helpful to you

I had a Panasonice bread machine before without a yeast dispenser. You just put the yeast at the bottom of the pan; put it in fiist to keep it away from the liquids Yeast then dry ingredients then liquids. Works fine.
