This .PDF document does not specify it as the Model 5811 manual; however, it is nearly identical, right down to the control panel on top.

Before I posted this comment, I downloaded, saved and printed the .PDF manual, and then took it downstairs to give it a whirl. PERFECT! At the time of this writing, my elderly Oster Bread Machine, Model 5811, #BM-100 (J222) is whipping up my first large loaf of white bread!

Incidentally, we discovered our Oster Bread Machine sitting on a shelf in an old house we were given as an apartment community manager quarters. It was sitting with some other stuff slated to be hauled to Goodwill (or the dump)!

I spent the past hour surfing the net looking for an Oster Bread Machine Model 5811 manual. Other than a couple of site where I was asked to pay a fee to download a .PDF or .ZIP file, there was little else. A couple of sites that purported to be THE place to download the manual turned out to be non-existent or otherwise dead ends.

Hope this helps all you who have been seeking this manual in vain for so long.

Happy Baking!

The heating element is drawing too much current. Needs replacement.

reach in with your fingers and bend the two little clips out a little until they grip your pan snugly. Start with 1/4 " and try that. If it doesn't feel snug go another 1/4 inch.... and so on.... until nice and snug...

Yes it does, but after half an hour the bread will go soggy.

Could be too much liquid, too much flour or not enough yeast
