Many bread machines pre-heat on the whole wheat cycle. Give it up to 30 minutes and it should start mixing within that time frame.

SOURCE: Our bread maker doesn't heat

Contact for a service center near you.

Otherwise, try to reboot your breadmaker's computer by plugging it in then pressing and holding the Stop/Pause button down for at least 3 seconds.

Hope this helped. ;)

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.

I am trying to make whole wheat bread with setting number 4, it is not kneading, just sitting there. I can detect some heat inside.

What you are describing is normal. Whole wheat settings on most machines heat up first before the kneading begins.

Hi fellow bread maker! Can you tell me which program you are using. Basic, whole wheat, sweet bread etc.?? Based on what you describe I think you may be choosing the whole wheat cycle because the stages you describe are almost exactly what my Toastmster does if I choose the whole wheat cycle. Hope this helps....

We just bought the same one with two paddles, we waited about 15 minutes and it didn't start kneading... is it defective, should i send it back?

If you chose the "whole wheat program" it may have a delay cycle. Many whole wheat programs on bread machines Try turning it on with no ingredients in it. You won't hurt the machine doing this. If it hasn't started kneading within 30 minutes then it is definitely broken. For example one of my madhines is a Toastmaster brand. If I choose the whole wheat program it slowly preheats for 20 minutes before any kneading begins.

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.

Need recipe for 1 lb whole wheat loaf

I have a very healthy recipe. Makes two loaves so you will have to divide in two.

13 oz. water (warm)
3 3/4 cup stone ground whole wheat flour
1/2 cup steel cut oats
2 T oil
2 T dry milk
2 T vital wheat gluten
3 T honey
1 1/2 t salt
1 T active dry yeast

When machine beeps add if desired:

1/2 cup golden flax seeds
1/4 cup unroasted sunflour seeds or sesame seeds (or both)

Put into machine and go. I usually set it on dough cycle and put into pans for second rise 50min in a warm, draft free area. Preheat oven to 400 place bread in oven after second rise, reduce heat to 375 and bake 30-35 min.

You can find both flour and gluten with Bob's Redmill products

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

Hi 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!!!
