We bought a used Funtime Popcorn Machine that was clean and used minimally (that's all the history I know). We have used prepared packs of popcorn/oil mixture/seasoning, and have run into problems with quick burning of kernels, the lids seem to be jammed closed (but not to touch, the popped corn doesn't seem to escape), and the motor runs with a loud whirring noise and then a screech when the pot fills to capacity. The spinner seems to rotate while we can see it, the kernels pop fully briefly before trouble starts. What can we do to fix this?

Have you tried any other electrical equipment in the plug? If the outlet doesn't have power it's possible that the GFCI popped in the outlet and needs to be reset. Just the first step in a troubleshooting procedure. I can't find any mention of an internal fuse on the unit.
Your question has more questions than answers. You choose a Gold Medal 2408 Popcorn popper as your model, but it does not have a 60ktyz motor, the stir rod and shaft are separate from the motor, and you can't get parts for it on ebay.
Pls check if your popcorn pack sealed tightly and kindly inspect your equipment if the radiation is enough to heat up the popcorn. You may also restart the mircowave so that you would verify if the machine does work
WAIT! Do not add any oil or butter. I don't know what kind of machine you have, but only POPCORN goes inside the Popcornnow. I have an old one that melts butter on the top cover, although I don't recommend that. I recommend butter in the microwave. Repeat: DO NOT ADD OIL where the popcorn goes or you will set a fire.
I have a Popcorn machine from Nostalgia too that had this problem. I cleaned it out and everything but it still had the problem of the it getting stuck. After days of analizing, I found the solution. after a while the ceiling of the popcorn machine starts to fall in, lowering the handles of where the kettle goes. making the knob that turns being lower that the one that makes it turn, causing it to get stuck, all I did is add so leverage so the kettle is once again at the same level or higher. Making it turn with greater force and not getting stuck. In other words make sure the turning mechanism is leveled and not one lower than the other. preferably the kettle part being higher.
