Hi My Panasonic SD 257 bread maker stopped working today.

Customer Question

Hi

My Panasonic SD 257 bread maker stopped working today. First it was not mixing /heating the ingredients and now it is stuck on the main option and I can't switch. The red light is on. It's been working well for 4 years. This is the first time this is happening. Any tips?

Thanks

Hello,
I am Tech Michael and I will be assisting you today.
Please be patient with us as these are technical questions and some testing may be required.
It may take a bit of back and forth conversation to be sure we have all the information in order to make a proper diagnosis.
Please unplug the bread maker for 30 full minutes then press and hold the start butt on for up to 30 seconds, please let me know if this helps or not.
Thank you

It is still not working. Not making a noise - mixing or heating up. It is late. Can we close this call and could I have my money back please.

Hi the problem is the main control board, did you want to replace that ?
I can help you locate the part and change that. Its easy to do requiring only a few hand tools;-)
Please rate kindly, I will ask them about a refund as well, have a great day!
