I get black smeary streaks in my dough too. I just bought a new machine because this happened in my old one. But, on about my 5th loaf in this new machine, I have little black spots and small smears. This is how my other machine started out and then the smears were thorughout the whole loaf after a month more.
Help, what is this!

Mixing OK but not heating/baking


That's not a good sign. This will keep your bread from rising properly and baking, obviously.
If you are still under warranty, contact your manufacturer, otherwise, you can still use the machine to mix but you will need to use your oven to finish your bread.
If your bread is not rising in the machine:
  • Remove mxing chamber from machine
  • If the chamber is not removable, UN-PLUG THE BREAD MACHINE so the blades DO NOT TURN.
  • Be careful of the mixing blade in the chamber
  • Remove dough gently with slightly oiled hands into a lightly oiled bowl with room for about 2x the volume of the dough
  • Cover with plastic wrap to prevent the dough from drying
  • Place the bowl of dough in an unheated oven and leave the oven OFF
  • Place an empty lasagna pan in the cold oven on a shelf below the dough or on the floor of the oven if there are no exposed elements
  • Boil some water and pour it carefully into the lasagna pan
  • Close the oven door - You have just made a proofing box. The steam and heat from the boiled water is sufficient to make a great proofing cabinet out of your oven hot box
  • Allow the dough to rise to about twice the original volume
  • remove the dough from the oven and remove the pan of water
  • continue with the baking instructions below
If your bread is rising in the machine or you have finished the above instructions:
  • Remove dough gently with slightly oiled hands into bread pans. Breadmakers are different sizes so you may need to use one or two pans. Or make an artisan style loaf on a cookie sheet lined with parchment.
  • Be careful not to compress your risen dough as this will make the loaves dense
  • You may also choose to make buns by separating the dough into smaller balls and placing on parchment lined cookie sheets
  • You can allow the dough to rise again for a short time in the proofing box above but I would just leave them on the counter under clean towels to prevent drying for say another 20 minutes. Over-rising bread should also be prevented. The result will be 'deflated' looking bread.
  • Preheat your oven to 375F and bake the bread until it is golden and makes a hollow sound when thumped on the top or the bottom crust
Personally, I love that a machine will mix and knead my dough for me while i go do something else but I don't like the appearance of a machine baked bread. I like the artisan hand-made look. I recommend you keep the breadmaker until you find one you like that is drastically reduced in price and just use the artisan proofing & baking options above.
If you have a Pizza Stone, you can also try that for baking an artisan bread. Use the breadmaker as the workhorse, use your oven as an artist.
Good Luck and may the Yeast be Lively!

When I use the dough cycle on my bread maker, the dough doesn't seem to rise enough and is sticky and wet.


Looks like you have the same bread man machine I have. My metod is too unplug the machine for a half hour then put it through a second round of mixing. At the end of secound mixing I place the dough in a bowl greased and large enough for the dough to rise one last time oil top of dough cover with a towel on top of stove turned on set to the desired temperature. Keep dough away from any drafts. Once dough has doubled in size usually about one hour, take dough from bowl and divide it into buns or loafs of bread. Let dough rise again covered. Place in oven bake for about 15 minutes or longer until desired color, bread is done when you tap the top of it and it has a hollow sound, remove from oven let cool in pan for about 5 minutes, then take bread out of pan and place on a rack that allowes air to flow all around it. The reason for the rack is that baked bread that is allowd to cool on a fly surface will cause the bread to sweat on the bottom. Make sure yeast is good not expired or left out in the open

Bread machine model TR520, mixes the dough, stops for a long time, then starts mixing the dough again continuously without starting the bake cycle. This was on the french program. The machine is new...


By continuously do you mean forever, non-stop kneading? I'm guessing not. French bread is really nothing more than white bread dough kneaded for an extra long time. The extra kneading creates the chewyness common to French breads.

Hope this helps!

The bread will rise in some spots but not the entire loaf. The loaf ends up lopsided. It's like it's not mixing properly.


Hi Darlene

I have the same machine and I wonder if your kneading parts are locked into place...i remember using it one time and the kneeding blades were not secured and the same thing happened.

Good luck..

Darlene S.

by the way...have you ever made the dough??..i attempted to make it tonight and it did not turn out..

Thanks

I bought the bread maker last night and it doesn't seem to mix the dough. I have spots of flour and salt in the dough. It seems like there is a paddle or something that is missing. Do you know if I am...


There is supposed to be a removable small paddle in bottom of pan.
If it's not there, you will not get dough at all. Just wet flour.
If paddle is there, but you have half way dough.. AND you followed directions exactly, machine has a problem. Take it back for refund or exchange.

I had the same problem. I find the loaves to be a much better size if I just use program setting 8 - Dough then put the dough in 2 regular bread pans or on cookie sheets (bagetts), let them have a second rising and finish them in the convection oven at 350 F for 21 minutes.

Bread pan does not release loaf after baking.


The Teflon coating on the inside of the pan has worn. You will need a new pan and probably also a paddle. In the meantime you could try spraying the inside of the pan with cooking oil prior to each use.

My Black & Decker B900SC bread machine doesn't mix properly


Have you tried adding a bit more water to your mix? It sounds as if your dough is too dry. Sometimes, no matter how exact you follow directions, you have to compensate for variables of the machine. I have a similar problem with some of my bread mixes if I do not add an extra tbsp or two of water.

Bread is ****.


Try to buy bread mixes that are in proportion to your machine. I had a machine that mads 2-1/2 pound loaves. I could only find mixes for 3/4 pound loaves. I had to buy multiple mixes, put them together and divide them by weight. I gave the machine away.
