You are engaging the time delay switch when you start changing the time on your machine. Don't do anything with the clock or timer. You need to just choose the whole wheat program and the machine will perform as it is supposed to.
If you have a B. Crocker bcf1690 machine you need to just plug it in and it will always default to the regular bread program. To change it to whole wheat you need to press the Menu button until the whole wheat program shows on the display ( #3) according to my manual if you go past it just keep pushing the menu button until it comes back around again to #3. then just push the start button.
push the stop button until your machine beeps, then unplug it and plug it back in. push select and push it again and again and you will get more confident as you see it go through the choices such as basic, whole wheat, french etc...... you will get more confident about how to choose. Once you feel you have the right program leave it there and then choose things such as the crust color you want and the LOAF SIZE once you feel you have the right settings say....whole wheat, light crust, 1.5 pound loaf.......then....push start and the fun will begin....
Use program #1 if you are using a recipe that contains regular bread flour. If using a combination of bread flour and whole wheat flour and whole wheat is 50% or more of the flour mix use the whole wheat program. Your manual will tell you which program # is the whole wheat one.
Take a look at your manual. There are a couple pages with charts showing the kneading and bake times for the machine. Try setting a cycle for a smaller loaf. I have a similar problem and had been setting a timer to take my loaf out early.
Hi Mindy.......it takes 30 minutes to PREHEAT this silly machine for wheat bread. I thought I did something wrong, too........I stopped it twice after it preheated for about 15 minutes. I did not want to waste anything so I let it stay in the machine.....I just went to check the machine and it started after 30 minutes of preheating.
