Bread not rising

We just started using our bread machine again after a couple of years and the first two attempts failed with unrisen doughy loaves. Everything seems to be working - the bread just isn't coming out all nice and fluffly like it used to!!

Is your yeast too old?
Was the dough too stiff? It should feel like a baby's bottom when it's just finished mixing. This could be caused by improperly measuring the flour. Do not scoop the flour. Gently spoon the flour into the measuring cup and scrape it off at level.
Are you using bread flour, not all-purpose?
Did you keep the salt and yeast separate?
Have you moved (different water, altitude) or changed your food lives in any other ways (such as using Splenda instead of sugar)?
Are you using tap water or filtered water? Filtered water is recommended.

Sink in the end of the baking process


Hi,

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 manufacturer's website.

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.

Have a nice day.

Kneading problem - lop-sided loaves


it is very imporant that you put the ingredients in the right order (water on the bottom, flour floating on top o it, yeast on the flour not touching the wwater). Also the amount of water is crucial.
The bread becomes evenly distributed during rise.
Rise problems might be due to improper kneading which in turn might be due to the pan jumping. Check that the pan is not jumping during kneading.

Hitachi HB B102 Bread is short and dense


Try 'proofing' your yeast; I've gotten a couple of NON-stale dated envelopes that caused the same problem.
If they are baking through, there isn't likely anything wrong with the bread maker unless the rising temperature is no longer right. During the rest time, feel inside the container to see if the dough is getting enough warmth to rise.

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
