Bread maker keeps burning the bread!

Apologies for repetition - I did post this query in another thread but I think it might have got overlooked, so second time lucky! :p

I have a Panasonic SD 253, and for the first few weeks it made lovely bread - no problems at all. Then I got a few burnt 'bricks' and after reading through the Breadmaking Mega Index I rectified this problem by throwing out the yeast and starting again with some new stuff. The bread now rises but it is still burnt around the sides - I suppose where the heating element is.

Do you think my breadmaker is faulty, or is there anything simple I need to do to rectify the problem :confused:

Any suggestions gratefully received,
Hen

    Just wonder did you use the dark crust option, I found that when I used that option but switched to light and it was fine again.

    Old age isn't bad when you consider the alternative.

    Thanks so much for your reply.
    I did use the dark crust option but I used it before the yeast disaster bread and didn't have any burn marks, just a dark crust on the top. I will try a light crust today and let you know how I get on.:D

    I have heard that the temperature outside the BM can affect the bread. Ie. whether its hot or cold. So it could be to do with that too.

    While not relevant to the burning issue (ho ho) when we lived in icy-cold rented houses (we still do, actually) the breadmaker refused to make decent bread - too cold for it to rise, even with the heated pan. I used warm water to get round the problem and moved the breadmaker from the kitchen to the first floor. Mine's a basic Hinari, for the record :)
