Generally, an HHH error code means the machine is sitll too hot from making the previous loaf. Keep the door open for a bit and allow it to cool down.

Why does my Morphy RIchards Breadmaker keep beeping HHH ? Will not work

That usually happens when you have baked a loaf of bread and you try to bake another one too soon. Most bread machines do that to let you know the oven is too hot for your yeast to work properly. Did this happen just after baking a loaf of bread?

Getting an error reading of HHH and cannot get to menu function. How do I solve this

That is a temperature warning that is an automatic feature on bread machines. What the machine is telling you is that the oven chamber is still too hot from baking the last loaf. It does that to prevent you from starting another loaf and having that loaf fail due to the high heat killing the yeast. If you want to bake more than one loaf push the STOP button till it beeps, unplug the machine, raise the lid, and leave it open for no less than 20 minutes. It should work fine by then if not let cool off another 10 minutes. It will be cool enough by ½ an hour to start another one.

HHH shows in the window. Won't start. What is the problem

The error code for HHH usually means it is too hot, if it is has been used recently. If it has, unplug the machine, and try to wait for it to cool down with the lid open for about 15-20 minutes. If that is not the case, I would suggest you to contact the manufacturer at:

When the bread is finished baking, after I take the bread out, the machine starts to beep with HHH error, I pull the plug, then when I put the plug back in it shows the time, or menu. It won't shut...

Before you take the bread out push the "stop" button until it beeps in a couple of seconds. Then unplug the machine, then take the bread out last.

My bread maker is flashing HHH

That probably means your breadmaker is too hot from the last loaf. Breadmachines always need to cool down for about 1/2 before the next loaf is baked.

I have a Sunbeam Convection Bakehouse model BM005 and the bread pan sticks all the time so badly that is it impossible to get the loaf out without mutilating it. What can I do?

We have one and used it for years. What we found works is to take the kneading plate out before it starts cooking. Do this after the beeps to let you know when to add fruit, and the kneading has finished.
This also saves bread as you do not loose a bug chunk in the bottom. Our pan is not very good any more, but we can still get the loaf out without any problems. Just need to let it cool for about 10 minutes out of the machine before attempting to take the loaf out if it is stuck.

Used 2 times in a row, but now get HHH when trying to restart

That just means that your the oven chamber is too hot from the last loaf you baked in it. It does that because the ingredients have to be at at the correct starting temperature or you won't get a good rise. It's designed to do that.

However, ifIf you have let your machine cool off (open the lid and leave it open after baking for about half an hour) and still shows the HHH then you have a more serious problem and should call or contact Sunbeam.

Sunbeam 5891 Breadmaker stops for several seconds

It is normal. It allows the dough to fall back on the mixer blade. Often these reverse and that also gives the motor time to come to complete stop before reversing.
