Question about Breadman TR2200C Ultimate Bread Maker
There was a power outage, then about 1 1/2 hours later the power came back on --- and now the machine seems to be out of commission. I checked the outlet with another appliance, and the outlet works fine. But when I plug in the breadmaker, nothing happens. Has a power surge destroyed my breadmaker? Nothing else in the house seems to have been affected.
The microprocessor in the keypad probably needs to be reset. With the unit unplugged, remove the keypad housing (one screw in back, one on the left side, rock it up enough to get a small screwdriver inside, then push back the soft plastic fingers to release the housing -- force it a bit, you won't break it). You do not need to remove the bottom cover.
Remove the keypad cover (4 screws) and the PC board (one screw). You'll see a factory reset button near the middle of the left side. Press and hold that for a couple of seconds.
If you want to test the unit before re-assembly, hold the PC board so it doesn't short against anything (there's nothing more than 5v on the board, so you won't get shocked), and plug the unit in. The display should appear. Unplug the unit, re-assemble, and then bake some bread!
There is also the possibility that the backup battery on this PC board is bad. Check it with a voltmeter -- it should be about 5v.

I had the same problem. I unplugged it for about 2 weeks and it started to work again. I don't know if it had to reset or what. I did the same things with checking the outlet. I can't explain why it started to work. The only thing is that now my select button doesn't work. I can only make the white bread. All the other buttons do work.
