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!

Maytag Oven. The bake do not heat, the broil is ok. what is the problem ?


Look at the wiring diagram... The manual reset Thermal Limiter Switch (part number 74008715), located on the lower rear insulation retainer can keep both elements from working, not one at a time... I would inspect the back of the bake relay for a burnt/failing solder joint. Swapping the BAKE and BROIL leads is an acceptable test, but if you put the bake leads on the broil and still get no heat: check the control relay. If the broil leads will not heat the bake element, you have a bad element or bad connection. Be sure to do all testing of the elements with at least one wire detached so as not to red a back circuit.

I have followed instrucions to the letter but my breadmaker is still not baking bread


If your breadmake is not working at all, try a different outlet. If that does not work, replace the unit. If the breadmake is mixing but not baking, you most likely need to replace the filament.

Bread not rising as it used to, not sure if problem with paddle or...?


just as a hint - there is few thousand breadmaker manufacturers... each of them is making several models... we do not live with you...

how we can help if we do not know what manufacturer and model?!? telepathy is overrated...

now, paddle have nothing to do with rise of the bread, yeast and temperature do! if paddle is mixing the dough - there is no problem with paddle!

buy pack of new yeasts (dry if you use dry, i prefer live ones), then try bake again, if bake is ok, you solved your problem, yeasts were old and enzymes stop working, if there is no change in results with new yeasts, try use same yeasts in different machine, if result is ok in different machine, you heating element is at fault... time for new machine...

you do not need to be super accurate with your baking, allow little play...

my favourite bread:
3.75 cup flour (non-bleached!)
1.75 cup milk (tepid, body temperature)
2 table spoon olive oil or butter
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 sachets dry yeast (21g - 0.7oz) if live yeast - about golfball size

enjoy!

Need the recipe for the cake mix that come with the oven


This is just one of many I found at this website http://www.lynettee.com/kidfood10.htm

Children's Chocolate Cake Mix
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup vegetable shortening
In a medium bowl, combine sugar, cocoa powder, flour, baking soda and salt. Stir with a wire whisk until blended. With a pastry blender, cut in shortening until evenly distributed and mixture resembles corn meal. Spoon about 1/3 cup of the mixture into each of 11 small containers with tight fitting lids or Ziploc bags. Seal containers. Label with date and contents. Store in a cool dry place. Use within 12 weeks. Makes 11 packages of Children's Chocolate Cake Mix for Easy Bake style oven.

To Use:
1 package cake mix
4 tsp. water
Mix together and stir with a fork or spoon until blended and smooth. Pour mixture into greased and floured 4 inch round miniature baking pan. Follow directions for child's oven, or bake in mom's preheated 375* oven for 12 to 13 minutes. Remove from oven and cool in pan on a rack for 5 minutes.
Invert onto a small plate and remove pan. When cool, frost with Children's Chocolate Frosting. Serves 2 children.

Enjoy!

Oven not heating up light ok fan ok


hi Lorraine. Thanks for choosing fixya! Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.

BREAD WONT BAKE


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
