Question about Whirlpool Gold GB2SHDXPS Stainless Steel

1 Answer

Popping sound Our refrigerator is brand new. It started making a serious popping sound constantly shortly after we went grocery shooping (like popcorn or buttons in the dryer). It wasn't empty before, and we only put in a small supply of groceries. It's 9:30 p.m. and I won't be able to sleep. HELP!

Karmakin, the popping you hear is probably the refrigerant entering the evaporator coils. Some are worse than others. You need to call for service since this is brand new. Sometimes they can insulate the cap tube going into the evap and the dryer to supress this noise. Best thing to do is call for back.

Popcorn machine model tpc-603 manual

Treat Time Model TPC-603

Turn on light and popcorn buttons, for 2 minutes to heat up the popper's kettle.

Then turn off the popcorn button, this stops the turning gears while loading oil and popping corn.

Warning the stainless steel kettle will be hot. Might want to wear an oven mitt.
1 tablespoon of oil (I use coconut oil) and 1/3 cup of popping corn. This makes est. 6 to 8 cups of popcorn.

NOW turn on the popcorn button so the gears start turning, this turns a wire on the bottom inside the kettle to keep the kernels from sticking or burning to the bottom.

If making multi batches, during the process it states in the manual to allow it to cool 5 to 10 minutes. I normally pop 3 to 4 batches and then let it cool down.

When finished popping, turn off both the light and popcorn buttons.

We just hooked up a new k410 lenovo computer and it has a thumping sound (sort of like popcorn popping in the distance, or a pop of boiling water). Do you have a clue ?

Never heard of such a thing. Only thing that comes to mind is a cable rubbing against a fan, but that sound differs. Take it back if brand new. No way to start off.

Have a kitchenaid microwave KHMS2040WSS brand new. Is there a way to set the popcorn sensor for a smaller bag? Right now it is set for 3.5oz and burns all the popcorn.

I have never seen a microwave that doesn't burn popcorn if you use the "popcorn" button. Why the manufacturers keep putting them on I'll never understand. There's nothing you can do change the presets on an oven since they are built into the controller. Instead of relying on the oven, you should follw the directions on the bag. These tell you to use high power, stay by the oven and stop the cooking when the time between pops drops to 1 or 2 seconds. Stored heat will continue to pop kernels for a bit, and you won't cremate your popcorn. You'll also avoid the possibility of the bag catching fire and damaging the oven, which I have seen several times. Finally, don't expect 100% of the kernels to pop. There wil always be a few duds, and extending the cooking time just results in burned popcorn.

Hi. I have a brand new Benchmark Premiere 6 11068 popcorn machine. Ever since the first time using the machine the kettle smokes up. It smokes the entire 5 minutes while heating up and continues to...

could be that the bowel had a thin plastic protection on it when new that should have been peeled off before starting it up
could be a wire touching the hot bowel and melting
what ever , it is under warranty so take it to a service dealer or authorized repair shop and have it checked out
smoke and smell are food contaminants so the cause has to be found for safety reasons

Do i need to add oil to the machine

oil is not necessary for this brand of popper. The seeds will pop themselves. Just make sure you don't overfill it with seeds. You have to turn it off when it is done. You'll need a bowl to catch the popped popcorn. Wait 15 minutes after popping before starting again.
