Depends on the texture you are looking for. Typically a machine has a pre-set program that kneads a certain time and shuts off. If you are using a recipe that is a bread that you make by hand, you could use the machine to knead the bread and rise the first time, then punch it down, knead by hand and form a loaf and bake in oven.
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.
If you have used your machine a lot then your belt may be wearing out or slipping .......or...... Try taking the pan out and turn your machine on the basic program and listen to see if it still squeaks. If is does then it may be your belt. If it stops then your problem might be in the pan & paddle assembly. Hope this helps...
Unless the sound is mechanical like metal on metal etc. what you may be hearing is the sound of the dough ball being knocked around and kneaded. Sometimes that gets pretty loud. While it is kneading go ahead and open the top and see if you think the dough ball is making the noise. If it seems to be coming from somwhere else then you may have a more serious problem. Is this a new noise or it this the first time you have used the machine?
Are you making a different kind of bread than you did the first time?. If so some machine programs have a delay before they start kneading such as the whole wheat cycle. Also some machines delay the kneading process while they warm up the ingredients. If it is colder where you live now than itw was 6 days ago that could be a factor.
Hi, If this is the third time using it, it could be defective. Return it for service. If not under warranty, try a few things. 1) Make sure the pan is inserted in the machine correctly. 2) Make sure that the paddle is not sticking, or the sealed bearing on the bottom of the bread pan is not broken or frozen. (Take pan out and see if you can turn the paddle freely by hand). Or finally, the belt may be loose and slipping, especially when it takes more power to knead the dough the second time. Good luck...Hank
Hi, Take out the bread pan and go to a kneading cycle. See if it is squeaking. If yes, then it could be the belt squeaking on the pulley or the motor itself. If it does not squeak when the pan is out, then it's the bread pan paddle and sealed bearing. That sealed bearing is lubed and sealed. It can't be oiled. Hank
My experience with the machine is that it kneads perfectly, but you have to use ACTIVE DRY YEAST instead of another kind of yeast, and you have to throw the ingredients into the pan in order - do not mix the ingredients at all - just pour them in, and let the machine do the mixing. Except for substituting between BREAD FLOUR and WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR, do not substitute any other ingredients. This one is very picky about the type of ingredients that you use - not for the innovator :-)
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.
