I am giving making yeast rolls once last shot. I always manage to royally screw it up, most recently adding too much salt. It should be noted that this is the same recipe I use for my homemade bread, so I really should have a better handle on it, but what can I say... it's my Achilles Heel.
I turned on the bread machine and it appeared to be stuck on a 4 hour bake cycle. I tried several things- holding the on/off button for 10 seconds. Unplugging it, then plugging it back in. Randomly mashing buttons while cursing at it. I tried everything ya'll.
Now this is where you can save some money. I could have chunked it out and bought a new one. I could have taken it in to be repaired somewhere.
Instead, I jumped on google and looked up "Panasonic bread machine won't change functions". <-- eloquent, no? Instantly up came pages of people who had the same problem. The solution? Hold the on/off button until it turns off, then hit the timer button. Voila, it functions again.
Woo hoo! Saved myself having to buy a new machine or pay someone to do the exact same thing! So next time you have an appliance or item that went a little wonky for no reason- simply google what it's doing. Chances are, someone online has a simple solution for fixing your problem!
