Chefmate Error Code E:03?

Needed a second bread machine. Bought a used Chefmate HB-215. It keeps showing error code E:03 every time you try to set anything that reading comes up. Anyone familiar with what it means?

The Chefmate brand is now owned by Target, and unfortunately they've had many product recalls on electrical kitchenware. Bread maker codes 01 and 02 are somewhat industry-standardized for "too hot" and "too cold" but the only hint for 03 I find is for "fatal error", which cannot be repaired (electrical failure). My only suggestion would be to contact a local small-appliance repair shop (think sewing machine or vacuum cleaner) to take a look.

According to this website, it could be that the machine is running too hot. www.fixya.com/.../t23184392-chefmate_bakery_oven_show_error_e03

It looks like sites are saying the E:03 error code generally means the same thing for all breadmakers.
"That message is the machine telling you that it is TOO HOT to bake a loaf of bread. It usually comes on when you have baked a loaf of bread and then try to a bake another one before it completely cools off. If you are getting that message with a cold machine then you have a problem that will require repair or replacement."

If this "too hot" doesn't sound like your problem, then you may be better off calling several of your local thrift stores and asking if they have any bread machines as their cost will certainly be less than a repair shop repair.
Most thrift stores have one or two bread machines at any given time.

I have had good luck with calling my local Sears service center (or anySears service center) and asking them what it means.
They usually have compatible manuals if you wish to buy one.

About a manual:
"Since practically all bread machines work the same simple way, you don't need the manual if you read the excellent instructions at the following website. The following website tells you how to operate a bread machine, even if you don't have the manual. It also includes great recipes (and you can easily find many more recipes online). Using the following website, I was EASILY able to figure out how to use my Chefmate bread machine even though I didn't have a manual."
