If it's heating at all, the element is probably good. If it is cooked partway, but not fully, that could be because it isn't rising. Make sure the dough is the right consistency before baking, as a different flour could have a different moisture content, thus requiring a different amount of water. Make sure there is sugar in the dough for the yeast to "eat" or it will not rise. If all else fails, try other yeast. Your can also test the yeast by proofing it. Put a teaspoon of the yeast in a cup of warm water with a teaspoon of sugar. It should foam and bubble in 5 minutes or so. You can find more detailed directions on testing the yeast by searching "proofing yeast" on a search engine. Good luck.

Make sure you are using the correct type of yeast. The old style active dry yeast is not as good. I recommend that you try Red Star Quick Rise Instant Dry yeast. Also be sure to store the yeast in the refrigerator. And, if you are not using a mix, try King Arthur Flour, it costs a bit more, but their tighter standards means you get more consistent results.

I've had the Sunbeam Bread machine for 6 yrs. and have had great success with it, but lately I've had problems with the bread rising, and today the whole center of the bread was caved it when I took it...


Hi,
You might try buying a few of those little packets of yeast. Then try the same recipe that you have been using. If the loaf falls again then your yeast isn't the problem. Recheck your recipe again and be sure you are measuring everything correctly. By the way in baking bread I always use flour marked "bread flour". I never use "all purpose flour" because of poor results in the beginning. I ebay machines all the time and have several in stock if you decide you need one let me know.

If the machine is heating the element is working.

If it looks like bread dough then the paddle is mixing.

It's more than likely your ingredients. Old flour, old yeast, not enough flour, not enough yeast, water too hot or cold.

Check each ingredient to the recip as you put it in. Put them in in the order suggested by the recipe. The yeast should go in last and shouldn't have contact with the water until mixing starts.

Frequently the bread does not rise correctly when doing "fast" mode.Should the unit be heating during the rise cycle?


Bread not rising correctly is complicated since there are so many factors involved more than just proofing temperature. You should hear a short click once in a while as it cycles the heater on for just a second at a time. You won't notice any considerable heat since too much heat will kill the yeast. Bread not rising correctly is normally due to the gluten not being developed in the bread or the flour was poor quality without much gluten to begin with. You can try adding some "Vital Wheat Gluten" to each batch to help and at the same time adjusting the yeast up by a half teaspoon at a time. Also keep in mind that the salt you add to the dough will ****** the yeast. Try and limit the salt to a teaspoon per loaf. Too little salt and the taste of the bread will go bland on you. Another aid to rising is to add some Diastatic Malt Powder to assit in the rise. And lastly, remember that you whole wheat flour will never rise as high as white flour.

Bread does not rise


Sugar is the component yeast needs to activate but I don't believe salt has much if any effect.
Check the machine's temperature during the time it should rise; it should be just noticeably warm. If it isn't, then the controller isn't cycling the heating element as it should.

Bread does not rise


  • Make sure it is good quality Strong White Flour (not plain flour)
  • The amount of water you use is very important. Use scales for accurate results - 1ML = 1G for water
  • Make sure the yeast is as per instructions regards type/quantity/quality.
  • Double check that you are running the correct program.
  • Always put the yeast in first, as you dont want the water in contact with water
Having failed that I would return the machine

Make sure you are following the recipe very carefully. You have to have the proper type of four, and yeast. Make sure you are using flour that is called bread flour. This type of flour has higher glutent than cake flour. Cake flour would make a heavier bread.

As for the yeast, there is a special yeast for bread machines. Regular yeast would be too slow acting for most bread machines.
