Bread raises to good heights and then falls while baking to half the size. I have made 2 loaves now and it has done it to both. I have new yeast for a "bread maker machine".

Very likely Oven temperature that's too low. This means the dough rises to its maximum, then collapses before it gets hot enough to set.

Try using a little less liquid and/or more flour in your recipe; Might be enough to fix it..
Also try a different program. and/ or Try different recipes

If still happens, return machine as defective.

Sounds to me like you are using too much liquid in your recipe. Reduce the amount of liquid by one tablespoon. After mixing for a few minutes your dough should be forming a "ball" and not look like a wet "batter".

With the 5838 the bread looks good till the bake cycle as than the bread falls about halh an inch


Accurate measured ingredients, fresh and best ingredients (especially yeast and flour), warm liquid (110 degrees), use peanut oil instead of butter (raises well and stays fresh longer), pkg. Rapid Rise yeast is same as bottled bread machine yeast and is always fresher (1 pkg equals 2 1/4 tsp.so use jarred yeast for odd amounts, ie. 5 tsp=2 pkgs + 1/2 tsp from jar). Wheat bread will rise good and drop a little but stays good for slicing. Oster's pan is too large so I cut loaf in half length ways for smaller and easy to slice pieces.

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.

Use a little less water. try that and see if it helps. Just start with a TBSP shy of current recipe.

Having difficulty


Try different batch of yeast. If still a problem increase the amount of yeast and/or sugar. Also if it rises and then falls there may be too much liquid.

Bread too high


The one thing that rises bread is yeast. You have some super duper yeast if the breadmaker suggests a certain amount and you keep getting the same results. You can either reduce the rise time -- or the amount of yeast -- or both.
