Plug the unit in at the power outlet. If the display comes on, switch it off with the START/STOP button. After the display goes off, switch the unit on with the SELECT button. Remember that the START/STOP button is only used to start or stop a specific program.

Used it yesterday, fine today. Pushed power, fine. Pushed start, why nothing?


Hello. I will take you through some basic troubleshooting. Being plugged in, display working, choices made, does the machine do anything after the start button is pressed? Examples include locking the lid, starting to fill with water, etc. Did you notice any error codes that popped up in the display? If nothing is happening after pressing start, and there aren't any error codes that have been displayed, the problem could be with the control panel. First, unplug the machine for about 5 minutes to reset the main board, then plug it back in. (You might see a spark and hear a "pop" at the outlet due to the amount of current being immediately used by the machine at idle--this is alarmingly normal!) The machine should give a short beep after being plugged in--this tells you that the main board is alive and receiving power. Try to initiate a cycle again. The circuit board for the control panel might be defective if you get the same results. Important: have you had a power outage recently--such as 3-4 weeks prior? They are NOTORIOUS for damaging boards in the electronic washers.
Part numbers:
8564291--USER INTERFACE BOARD
W10104830--MAIN CONTROL BOARD

Link to pictures of the user interface board
8564291 Google Search
Link to pictures of the main control board
W10104830 Google Search
To initiate automatic diagnostic mode, follow this procedure:
press and hold the spin button for 3 seconds, release it for 3 seconds--3 times(yes, do the 1-one thousand, 2-one thousand, 3- one thousand out loud, lol--I do!) All the lights will light up and you will see "88" on the display. If there are any stored error codes, the most recent one will be displayed--Fxx(example: F2--means there is a stuck button on the user interface board) The machine stores the last 4 error codes--keep momentarily pressing the spin button to see any stored codes until the machine displays a C0. Image 3 has the instructions. The first 2 pix show the sequence of the automatic self test and what will be in the display as each of the machine functions is initiated. See the attached pix below. For any displayed error codes, you can do web searches using your model number and the error code to find out what the meaning is. Let me know what you find--to exit the diagnostic mode, simply press the power button. I hope this helps you!

When I plug in my west bend hi-rise all I get is a blue screen. Nothing happens when I press the buttons.


There is a problem with the internal processor and it could be from the power supply that is inside or it could be the processor itself. The only thing that you can do is take it to a service center or send it in.

My bread machice will not start.


Addressing Power-up/Start-up Issues:


1. Unplug the breadmaker.

2. Confirm the power source your accessing is live using a blender, toaster, etc.

3. Plug the breadmaker in.

4. Confirm the breadmaker is receiving power:


    1. Some models have a built-in off/on switch. Turn it to the ON position.
    2. Some models make an audible tone when plugged in.
    3. Some models have a colored light and/or a lighted display screen that lights up.
    4. Some models require you press the Select button down until the unit powers up.
    5. Some models require you press the Start button down until the unit powers up.


3. Were you unable to confirm that your breadmaker is receiving power? Sorry to hear that. Attempt to have the breadmaker serviced by a small appliance repair facility or simply discard it.


4. Were you able to confirm that your breadmaker is receiving power? Fantastic! Now reset the breadmaker by pressing the Start button down until you notice a visible and/or audible confirmation, usually within 5 to 10 seconds.


That should fix it. Hope this helps!

I have a Breadman TR875 breadmaker. It will not do anything when I hit start. I've tried to unplug it, but didn't help.


I believe for this perticular model to power-up, you must press the Select button first to select a mode, then press the Start button.

Here's more on the subject...

Addressing Power-up/Start-up Issues:

2. Confirm the power source your accessing is live using a blender, toaster, etc.

    1. Some models have a built-in off/on switch. Turn it to the ON position.

3. No, you were not able to confirm that your breadmaker is receiving power? Sorry to hear that. Attempt to have the breadmaker serviced by a small appliance repair facility or discard it.


4. Yes, you have confirmed that your breadmaker is receiving power? Fantastic! Now reset the breadmaker by pressing down on the Start button until you notice a visible and/or audible confirmation, usually within 5 to 10 seconds. Note: It bears mentioning again at this point that some models require you press the Select button first to select a mode, then press the Start button.

Special Note: Often the + and - Timer Delay buttons are pressed by mistake, delaying Start by up to 12 hours.
