When the fuse blows see what else in the house is out, maybe you have the circuit overloaded. Try putting the popcorn maker on a different unused curcuit to see if it still blows. Then you will know if it is the popcorn maker.

Adjusting the thermostat for best temperature


There is a adjusting screw on the thermostat. So your not guessing you should heat it on a. Bench with a amp meter on the line . Then check temp and adjust from there. The factory thermostats are. Preset . If you installed the correct one adjustment should not be necessary? Is the element tight on the bottom?

Trying to find kettle wiring drawing 3255


To order a manual from the factory the part# is 67834. Depending on how old this is , those kettles and or similar design had a issue with the nut comming loose that holds down the thermostat thight to the bottom of the pan. The loose nut would then bounce around in there until it touches a elect.connection and ground at the same time. It will short circuit the kettle and end up welding itself in place . so when you turn the kettle on it trips the circuit rite away. you have to dissasemble it and remove it . there is a new locking type nut avalible to replace it.

Why is my gold medal popcorn model # 2552 machine not heating to pop popcorn anymore?


A kettle not heating is either a switch, kettle wires, thermostat, or kettle heater.

Check that the kettle is plugged in tight, notice if the switch lights up when switched, then contact your local gold medal dealer for repairs. It is always cheaper to repair a gold medal kettle than replace.

How to install a stir rod in a Gold Medal Product, Deluxe Pinto Pop, model 2147


Take the kettle crossbar assy off the kettle and look and see if there is a set collar above the shaft weight. If so loosen it so you can slide the weight up...enough to get the old one out and the new one in.

Kettle not heating up


First check that the kettle is plugged into the cabinet. Then check if switch, (or red power light) lights up when you flipped the switch back and forth. If it does the problem is inside the kettle.

Contact a Gold Medal dealer for service options, repairing it is the best options as a replacement kettle for that model is very expensive.

I have a Gold Medal Popcorn Machine 2086. The kettle is uncleanable. Where can I purchase a new Kettle?


I hate to put this as a solution because it really isn't. I have an old popper needing a new kettle and was told it was almost as much to purchase a new kettle than the whole machine. The kettle is almost the entire cost of the unit. I will be purchasing a new unit.
