Sink in the end of the baking process
Most bread machine manuals include a wealth of information about how to
use the models so that they work at their best and produce great loaves
of bread. Many manuals also have a troubleshooting section near the end.
Before you contact customer service or attempt to take apart your
machine, read the manual completely and try restoring your machine to
its original settings, testing it again, and finally trying the repair
ideas offered in the troubleshooting section.
If you've misplaced your
manual, you may be able to find a down loadable copy on the
If the problems you're having relate to your finished loaves of bread
rather than to your bread machine itself, you might be able to solve
them by experimenting with the machine's settings or the ingredients in
your bread. For example, expired yeast could result in a loaf that
doesn't rise, and especially warm weather could mean a loaf that will
sink in the middle.
Play around with ingredient amounts and types to see
if your loaves improve when you use certain combination or settings.
You can also experiment with the machine itself, disassembling its parts
and putting it together again after you attempt to locate the problem.
If your bread machine is still under warranty, customer service
representatives from the manufacturing company should be able to offer
you online or telephone assistance. If you're not able to resolve the
issue over the phone, you may be able to send your machine back to the
manufacturer for free or low-cost repairs.
Even if you don't have a
warranty for your machine, you can still contact the manufacturer for
troubleshooting assistance and repairs, although you may have to pay a
fee. You can also search for appliance-repair centers in your area and
check to see if any of them handle bread machines.
Have a nice day.
