Thread: Problems with a breadmaker
26/09/2018 20:45:58

Hi Bill, ~ £90

Panasonic SD2500 Breadmaker - White

423/9781 At Argos

23/09/2018 18:27:51

We have a Panasonic SD 2500 about 4 years old, had a cheapo previously, no comparison.

+ 1 for fresh yeast, it soon goes off.

Good results with various makes of flour, usual mix is 300g strong white and 200g of wheat meal or country mix,

not sure of the name, but its coarse. Add honey & olive oil + 260ml of water.

Regards, bear..

Thank you, Ian & Jason. Your replies made me smile!

I mentioned safety switch, due to the fact it wouldn't start.

You learn something new every day!

Is there a safety switch on the belt guard, that you may have disturbed?

Hi Tim,

You could do four slits, with your trusty hacksaw.

Is this any help?

Hi clogs,

I was tasked with a similar charger, saw the burnt resistor, long story, short, gave it back to the owner. He rang me about a week later, he had fixed it with a new resistor. he had found the info. on the 'net. I don't know the resistor value. I will look on the 'net.

Buy one, work out any mods required to suit your needs, then copy it, times nine.

If you have mains voltage, or whatever you are powering the door with, you could attach a neon or led, and have it lit permanently (Behind the door).

Re; Velux windows, we have just had two replaced free, even out of warranty. One was cracked the other was OK.

​Google Velux for info. They only do certain sizes.

​Good luck, bear..

My solution; Mechanical counter, activated by a mains relay or solenoid, coupled with mechanical linkage.**LINK**

Of course, it depends what's in your 'Junk stock'. Plus the safety issue.

I can stoop pretty low, maybe a solenoid out of a washing machine, (Water inlet control).

Good luck, bear..

"If Nick was looking for 180V DC he won't have found it. The board is probably OK.

It's likely the fault is further down the chain."

Agreed, Neil, I just wanted to move on.

I thought it was well presented, lady presenter.

What about the scaffolding, not allowed to touch the tower. That is a work of art too.

To prove the input/ RF filter board, remove mains in & mains out, join them together, like for like. Power up, Go = board duff. No Go = fault elsewhere.

Good luck, Bear..
