I don't have the same model (mine's a Hinari) but I encountered a similar problem today - it wouldn't start in the wholewheat setting. Then I reread the manual and it stated that the first part of the cycle is, "A rest period during which the flours and grains absorb the liquid - this softens the ingredients and helps them to combine properly".

It turns out that this takes quite a long time and (sure enough) when I checked the timer it was indeed counting down. I think it started mixing after about 15 mins or so.

I hope this might be the same in your situation!

If you have a B. Crocker bcf1690 machine you need to just plug it in and it will always default to the regular bread program. To change it to whole wheat you need to press the Menu button until the whole wheat program shows on the display ( #3) according to my manual if you go past it just keep pushing the menu button until it comes back around again to #3. then just push the start button.

push the stop button until your machine beeps, then unplug it and plug it back in. push select and push it again and again and you will get more confident as you see it go through the choices such as basic, whole wheat, french etc...... you will get more confident about how to choose. Once you feel you have the right program leave it there and then choose things such as the crust color you want and the LOAF SIZE once you feel you have the right settings say....whole wheat, light crust, 1.5 pound loaf.......then....push start and the fun will begin....

The whole wheat option does not work but all others do


The whole wheat program goes through a warm-up phase that others do not. When you choose whole wheat and push start it won't start mixing right away like the other programs do.

Hi, the recipe says bake at "White" the model


Use program #1 if you are using a recipe that contains regular bread flour. If using a combination of bread flour and whole wheat flour and whole wheat is 50% or more of the flour mix use the whole wheat program. Your manual will tell you which program # is the whole wheat one.

Just purchased the Panasonic Breadmaker SD-YD250 and wonder if the 'Rest Period' portion can be programed out or deleted. Many thanks Richard


That is usually part of the whole wheat program. I don't know if you can program it out or not but you could compare the program with the "basic" program and try using that instead if you think it might work. To have a decent loaf you may have to replace some of your whole wheat flour with bread flour and perhaps some vital wheat gluten and experiment to see if you get a good loaf. Many bread makers have the rest period to start their whole wheat program.

Whole wheat cycle no longer works!


Are you taking into account the preheating for whole wheat cycle? The machine preheats for 30 minutes before normal cycles start - only on whole wheat setting.

Get setting to whole wheat bread


Try using the white setting and it should be OK. Using part white and part wheat also works well, I have found.

TR440 Breadman won't begin kneading once "start" button is pushed


Hi Mindy.......it takes 30 minutes to PREHEAT this silly machine for wheat bread. I thought I did something wrong, too........I stopped it twice after it preheated for about 15 minutes. I did not want to waste anything so I let it stay in the machine.....I just went to check the machine and it started after 30 minutes of preheating.

I wish they would mention this in the book!!!
