7-Minute Power Failure Back-Up
Your Bread Maker has a 7-minute power failure back-up feature. If the
electricity goes off, the memory will store your course selection for up to
60 minutes. If the power comes back on within this time, bread making will
resume where it left off.
If the bread maker loses power for more than 7 minutes and you are using
any dairy products, perishables or meat in your bread, you should discard the
contents of the recipe and start again with new fresh ingredients due to health
and sanitary considerations. For nonperishable recipes you may try starting
the bread maker at the beginning of the course again. However, this may not
always produce an acceptable loaf of bread.
If you are not sure when the outage occurred, remove the dough ball from
the bread pan and place in an oven-safe baking container. Allow to double in
size and place in a preheated (350ºF/177ºC) oven for 30 to 45 minutes or until
done. The bread will sound hollow when tapped on top of the loaf if it is done.

Important: Power failure back-up does not cover surges. If you experience
frequent surges, please use a surge protector.
