Question about Breadman TR845 Bread Maker

Breadmaker won't bake

We haven't used our bread machine in a few years and we just pulled it out of the basement. We've tried it twice and have gotten the same results each time. The machine seems to go through all the cycles just fine, but when the machine is through, all I get is a big, well-risen, ball of dough that hasn't baked. I suspect there may be something wrong with the heating element, but if this is a problem anybody else has encountered with a fix other than taking it to be repaired, please let me know.

    Will not bake. Does every thing else. Checked element and it had 22.1 ohms, fluke 87. Any thoughts

    I have exactly the same problem...been searching the web for a service/repair center to avoid shipping costs back to the manufacturer.
    Has anyone found repair services in Atlanta GA?
    Where can I buy a new heating element?

    Everything works but it is not baking. Could it be the element ?

I am having the same problem. Because of the way a heating element is made, it should have very little resistance when ohm ed out using a multimeter. Mine does too. The only other thing I could suggest is to test the relay on the circuit board. If 12V is applied across the coil, you should get a short across the contacts that run to the yellow wire and I think the through the board connection that has a 5 on it. It will be the same electrically as the top of the actuating coil for the relay. I haven't tested mine yet though so I'm not sure of that connection, but one of them should be shorted to the yellow wire connection when the relay is energized. Well, good luck troubleshooting. Have fun.

The only thing to do is to open the appliance and check with a multi-meter for the ohmmage iof the heater element it should give you less than 100ohms, if not it may be open circuit from inside the element. If so you only have to buy another heater and replace it! Patrick

SOURCE: The bread did not bake. The ingredients mixed,

You may have a bad heating element. If this is the case it will be hard to find that part.

We haven't used our Black & Decker B2200 breadmaker for a few years. When we did, liquid and uncooked flour were left at the end of the cooking process. Could this be due to lack of use? If

When your machine started kneading did you notice if the ingredients were actually mixing? Sometimes the drive belts on bread machine break and there is no mixing (the paddle doesn't spin around)

Bread Machine Reports Error

We have had a few bread machines now and if they stop working suddenly this is one of the most recent issues that we have experienced. And has proven to work for us twice. The place the machine is stored is not typically very warm this time of year in our home and recently the bread machine has failed to start and delivered an error, and before I could even look up the error code my spouse got our hairdryer and warmed the machine up with it and then the machine started with out any error or problem. So try that before signing up to buy any pesky parts, because that is much more work.

Bread does not rise

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.

A kind lady gave me a new Toastmaster bread machine 4 or 5 years ago, but my life was such that I thanked her, but said I didn't have time to devote to it. A year ago, I took it out and used it twice...

If you chose the "dough" program it won't get hot at all. If you chose the other programs and it never got hot then you do have a problem. Please advise which program you chose and we'll go from there.

I had a Black and Decker B 1600 Model Bread Machine for 14 years and made the seven grain bread (from the recipe book that came with the machine) in it at least twice a week. I also had very good results...

Hi, A bread machine made 14 years ago was of very high quality. Black & Decker does not make bread machines anymore, but buys them in a foreign country and slaps the Black & Decker name on it. The program may be different, the heating element may have changed, and possibly the paddle size and time of kneading and cycle times could have have changed. You will have to experiment some more ( I know you have, and it's expensive and frustrating) to change settings to try and make it work for you. Talk to your friends who may have a bread machine and try it on theirs, or give me the recipe and I'll try it on my Sunbeam...that would be interesting. Hank

My West Bend Homestyle Plus bread machine makes clunking sounds when it mixes the dough. The paddles are in correctly, but seem loose on the spindles. I hadn't used my machine in quite some time (years)....

like you, I pulled my bread machine out after several years. It clunked loudly for the first few loaves and then it settled down. It's still louder than I remember, but it seems to work fine. I try to be home whenever I use it, as I don't completely trust it. Otherwise the loaves are turning out amazingly well!

My bread maker kneads twice just fine, and it bakes just fine, but the bread doesn't rise very high. All of my ingredients are fresh. I have tried several different recipes and it still doesn't rise in...

That is a difficult problem. One thing you might try to get a better rise in your machine is to cut the salt in your recipe by one half. It's healthier that way too. Please let me know the result.

I have purchased a Black and Decker bread machine to replace the one which I have used for the last 15 years or so. The recipes with the new machine are atrocious; I should be able to use my recipes which...

Do you still have your old machine? If so try one of the recipes that failed in your new machine. If it fails again you may have bad ingredients. Old yeast, old flour, etc....that's the only thing I can come up with based on what you have described. If the loaf in your old machine turns out well then you should return your Black and Decker. You can find good deals on ebay on used bread machines that are tested and they show the loaf of finished bread. I have some for sale there, that I have baked in.

Paddle won't come out

I've had pretty good results with a crochet hook (use a metal one that can be run through your dishwasher). Insert the hook through the hole in the paddle and it should catch on the far side just enough to pull the paddle out of the loaf. Best to do it before it cools and the crust hardens, though.
