Angelaasked

Hi, I just got this machine and am learning. In the manual it has a circle with a cross through it on most of the dough and jam mixes. Does this mean I cant do it in machine?

Hi there. I just bought the SD2501 yesterday and made my own basic bread today. However, the tip of the bread didn't turn brown. The side of the bread nicely baked. Is there any specific reason for this thing? Thank you

Hello Sam, before u press the start button another button should be pressed. Whether u want light, medium or dark. Just press the one u want, we like medium but, if you want darker so press the darker, Good luck

Hi Sam. I don’t know either, if you followed the correct amounts for the size of loaf and of course the dark/medium/light setting. Best to call Panasonic with your question, I’m sure someone will have the answer for you.

I would just let it sit out on the counter for a couple of days. You’re cannot immerse the unit in water so I would give it a good wipe out with a damp cloth and the outside with maybe with a damp cloth a maybe a drop dish soap.

Or better yet, call Panasonic and ask them what they suggest.

You have to check the menue number. Some menue numbers do not function with the dispenser. Check the manual...

I have a SD-250, I want the machine to start immediately. But all I have is a 4 hour delay. Any ideas?

2 answers
Dave
Dave

My neighbour and one and he advised and showed me, the machine does not start immediately. It unlike other bread machines just sits there and then eventually starts.
Very strange as the web sites all say, when it is at REST the machine still stirs.
It might be advisable for Panasonic to indicate this in their manual, as I almost returned it to the supplier.

Ash
Ash

Hi
Make sure your time matches the menue number and/or NO TIME is added as extra to the total time.

The majority of the total time is for rising and baking is only about less than an hour.

I would turn it off for hours then turn on and supervise the machine and film for a minute every hour and send it to the Factory.

Good luck

Hi Panasonic.

Does the SD-2501 have manual programs? To program your own setting with your own timing and temperature ETC? Does it have Bake Only setting like the Breville BBM 800?

I've had my machine for a week now and everything comes out burnt. On light setting for soft bread, the loaf is really dark, and on programme 1 for white, the loaf actually has black on it, it's so burnt. Should I return it for refund?

Yeh thats really strange. Are you following the recipes in the instruction manual and weighing all of your ingredients? I've never had these issues at all so it might be best to talk to the manufacturer if you're sure that you're doing everything right. :)

Emmacon
Emmacon

Yes I am weighing everything religiously. Will send back today. For that price I want a machine that makes edible bread.

Rita Pasked

I purchased a 3rd Panasonic breadmaker SD 2501 recently and haven't had much success making wholemeal bread. It is very heavy and doesn't rise evenly. I didn't have any problems with the other 2 over many years. Have you any suggestions about how I can improve the quality of the wholemeal bread?

Panasonic

Hi Rita, are you following the instructions in the user manual, or have you been using a specific mix or something from scratch? We would recommend using the guides in the user manual as these are tried at tested on our products.

Hi Mardi, it is recommended to use the correct kneading blade to ensure you get the best cooked bread and avoid damage to the bread maker.

Dave A.

Dave A.asked

I’ve had my Panasonic 2501 for about 6 months and the paddle suddenly seems to be loose on the driveshaft, whereas before it seemed to be a snug fit. Is there a piece missing between the shaft and the paddle? And worse. Have we eaten it? It also seems to be noisier now because the paddle is moving around on the driveshaft.

Does the other paddle fit tight? If not it has the be the driveshaft. If it is only 6 moths old it should be under warranty.

Dave A.

No it doesn’t. Yes I realise it’s under warranty but I can’t understand how it’s happened. I can’t see what’s missing.

Panasonic

Hi Dave, it doesn't sound like there is a part missing as the parts are large and you would notice this. You can contact our customer service team on 132600 and provide photos for our further review to assist you.

Hi David, it could be too much yeast or too much water. It is kind of trial and error to get it right.
