My cotton candy maker dose not work and it has been two years! It's too late to return it now and I can't throw it away! what can I do! I wasted 30 bucks for this piece of junk! Help me fix it please!


With any device, it is helpful to know the brand and model number. I will provide a few links to some cotton candy maker's repairs but you have left out the crucial information. Not to worry. You can google "cotton candy maker" the brand and repair and possibly find some information. Even better, you don't have to have the machine to make cotton candy. I will provide links to that as well.

Tip

Be the cotton candy maker!


Here is how to operate a professional cotton candy machine.
First of all make sure you are renting the machine from a reputable company and that it arrives with a trained professional who knows how to operate it properly.
Also make sure that the machine is on a steady base and that no children or animals can get too close.

It is best to use a plug just for the machine instead of sharing it with other appliances.

To begin, turn on the machine's main power switch and fill the floss head with sugar.
It is very important not to fill the head above 90%.

Turn the machine's motor and then the heat switch on, putting the head dial setting on HIGH.
The sugar will start forming in about 45-60 seconds.

When the cotton candy starts pouring out you should have your cone ready. Dip it in the machine and pick the cotton candy by giving the cone a twirl that will gather the sugar around the cone.
Avoid rolling the cone around in circles as it is not the correct method to gather cotton candy.

When you are done, first of all turn off the HEAT and allow the motor to continue running at least 45 seconds, in order to get rid of the leftover sugar, and cool down the heating element.
Than disconnect the stabilizer screen and clips, rinsing them in warm water to dissolve the sugar.
You can now remove the floss pan from the main unit and rinse it off.

Children must not play with the cotton candy machine. It certainly is fun but it is not a toy.

Candy floss


On commercial machines there are leather floaters (tabs) that create the wind that floats the cotton candy mid bowl. If they are missing, or twisted the wrong direction the floss will fall to bottom of bowl.

Twist the leathers like an airplane propeller with the leading edge down, to force the breeze upwards. If they are twisted backwards the sugar falls and collects around the head.

Hi , I recently purchased your machine and would like to know how to flavour and colour the cotton candy. I did not receive any sugar in the box , so I'm not sure what to use. Please help. P.S - Can I...


Hi pandoramagic...
This is not the company that you bought your machine from, it is an "Answer Company" we supply answers to questions people have.
You need a special sugar in the machine (read below), and you can use liquid food coloring to color the sugar/cotton candy and different liquid flavors to flavor the cotton candy.
Typical machines used to make cotton candy include a spinning head enclosing a small "sugar reserve" bowl into which a charge of granulated, colored sugar (or separate sugar and food coloring) is poured. Heaters near the rim of the head melt the sugar, which is squeezed out through tiny holes by centrifugal force. Precolored sugar packaged specially for the process is milled with melting characteristics and a crystal size optimized for the head and heated holes; granulated sugar used in baking contains fine crystals which spin out unmelted, while rock sugar crystals are too large to properly contact the heater, slowing the production of floss.
The molten sugar solidifies in the air and is caught in a larger bowl which totally surrounds the spinning head. Left to operate for a period, the cottonlike product builds up on the inside walls of the larger bowl, at which point the machine operator twirls a stick, cone, or their hands around the rim of the large catching bowl, gathering the sugar strands into portions which are served on stick or cone, or in plastic bags. As the sugar reserve bowl empties, the operator recharges it with more feedstock. The product is sensitive to humidity, and in humid summer locales, the process can be messy and sticky.

I bought a candy washer 2 days ago and when it spins it bounces around n is very loud. also it makes a squeaky noise when drum turns as if the seal is to tight against the drum, please help . sal.


Make sure the shipping bolts have been removed, and make sure there is no polystyrene packing that needs to be removed.
Make sure the washer is absolutely level as well.
If all else fails, then I would recommend you contact the supplier, and relate the problem to them, more so as it is a new washer.
Hope this helps.

Loud Noise - Spin Cycle


If the washer is making a squealing noise, the problem is more likely to be the basket drive. If it is more like a rattling sound, the centerpost bearings are probably worn out. Open machine's rear panel and spin the basket manually by turning the drive pulley, to find out from where exactly the noise come from. Defective part should be replaced. Good luck !!
