Hitachi HB B102 Bread is short and dense

Hello, I have a Hitachi HB B102 breadmaker. The loaves are no longer coming out at the proper size and height. They are short, heavy, dense "midget" loaves. Is this fixable?

Thank you

    Thanks for your prompt response. I believe I can rule out the stale yeast problem. I have bought fresh yeast, varied the amount of yeast, and tried white bread, white and rice flour getting the same results. I suspect also there is inadaquate heat during the rising process. Is that fixable?

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.

    I'm fairly sure (just because manufacturers are so cheap) that the element used for baking is also used to maintain the warmth the yeast needs to rise, the machine just turns the high power element off after a few seconds.
    So, I'm pretty sure the element is good but you could risk a fever thermometer and stick it into the dough during the time it is at rest and rising.
    Yeast likes ~105 F to rise and probably won't suffer until ~115 F.


    If it is running lower than that, the temperature sensor may not be as it should any more or there may be an internal adjustment that has drifted.

Hitachi HB-C103 Bread Machine Manual


The best thing to do is to read any manuals you can find. The machines made by Hitachi will all basically work the same. The important thing to know is what size loaf your machine makes. Just look at other machines at the place you can buy them to get an idea of loaf size. Then find a recipe for the size you have in another manual. Run your basic cycle and note the times that different things happen.
You can deduce what is happening based on the information you glean from all the different manuals you read.
