Weird fumes from Breadman Ultimate-normal??

nooodles Jan 2, 2005 08:58 PM

So my brand new Breadman Ultimate bread machine is in the process of baking a loaf right now, and I'm noticing really strong fumes coming from it. It smells like burnt rubber.

Is this standard new appliance behavior?

I know my blender did this the first few times I used it, and wanted to know from other bread machine users if bread machines are the same way

    Just think of it as the "new car smell" but at 350 degrees farenheit. If it is there after about 5 loaves, you may have a problem.

      Recent posts say Kitchen Aid will smell like that but ignore it....I imagine it to be true with any appliance....It should go away after a few runs.
