The bread machine will do everything but heat up the heating element to actually bake the bread. I am very mechanically inclined to fix things. Does this model have a fuse internal to it that I may need to change to make this machine heat up again to bake bread? I used it successfully just a week ago. ** I also need a manual for it as I bought it second hand. ** Thank you.

There are several videos on YouTube about how to bake a bread in a bread machine. Several show the demonstrator pouring liquids, flour oil etc. into the bread pan when it is in the bread machine. This a mistake. You should never be pouring ingredients into the pan while it is in the machine. If you spill milk, flour, oil, butter, etc. it will drip down on the the drive of the machine, onto the heating element etc. Down there it will gum up your drive, smell bad on the heating element etc. You can easily clean a stove burner. You CAN'T easily clean the small cook chamber and drive gear on your bread machine. ALWAYS REMOVE YOUR BREADPAN FROM THE MACHINE BEFORE ADDING YOUR BREAD INGREDIENTS THEN CAREFULLY PLACE THE BREADPAN IN THE MACHINE AFTERWARDS! YOUR COOK CHAMBER (OVEN) WILL BE MUCH CLEANER AND YOUR MACHINE WILL LAST LONGER.
The whole process takes 3-4 hours to complete. Did you give it that much time? Next time note how many hours are on the readout just before you push "START" and let the machine countdown to 0:00 on the clock before you assume something is wrong. If you did that last time and the bread wasn't baked then your machine is broken.
the surge from the original element burning out has destroyed the control board if you can't hear the relays on the board clicking when you power up the elements bake or broil then its either the low voltage side of the board,if you hear clicking then the relays are working but the contacts are burned out and can't pass the current to heat the oven or briol elements
sounds like when you put it on bake only the broil element is coming on,when in bake both elements come on,set it to bake,does the bake element glow orange when it heats up,if not the element could be bad and the heat is coming from the broil element or you could be only getting 120 volts to the element,so start it and see if the element glows orange or after like 5 minutes touch the element with a wet paper towel and see if it's even getting hot at all,if not make sure you unplug it or flip the breaker before you go to remove the element,there's 240 volts going to it and power is there all the time,i've seen people try to take it out with the power on thinking that the oven isn't on and POP not only is the element bad but they took out the relay in the clock assy. to by doing that.if you want to write back and let me know what you find i'd be happy to help you if you need more help.
If you chose the "dough" program it won't get hot at all. If you chose the other programs and it never got hot then you do have a problem. Please advise which program you chose and we'll go from there.
Hi, Chances are 80% that the heating element has blown. This is due to the fact that a heating element has a limited life span because of the great amount of heat it generates. I would first check or have the element checked at your local repair store before looking for any other problems. It's possible that the thermostat which controls the element has blown, but it's more likely to be the element itself. Let me know if this solves your problem. Best wishes, Graemevm
