Question about Gold Medal 2003 Whiz Bang Popcorn Maker

1 Answer

School concession popcorn machine

The stirrer on the kettle seemed to be getting stuck on the popcorn which was compacting as the kettle filled. This made the kettle buck kind of like and off balance washer. Now the stirrer broke off or came undone because the pin holding it popped out. I noted that the prongs holding the pin/stirrer blades where bent so I am guessing they need replaced. Everything else seems to work fine. I don't have the model but can get it when Ibuy parts need. Any ideas as to what would cause this and what parts I need to buy? I am using colored oil and adding seasoning as opposed to premeasured packs. would this cause the problem which led to it breaking?
thanks?

There are many ways that this could have caused your problem! Too much popcorn kernels put into bucket!....somthing in the bucket that is causing it too stick! (I would never put salt or any other seasoning in the maker untill popcorn has dropped) anso the heat from the maker itself can cause warping of the metal parts inside over time! I cant tell you what parts to order because i dont know the model number,But If you have all the pats somone of little skill should be able to fix it for you by bending it back into place and putting it back together and trying it! If not come back with the model # and we can help with the parts!
Please rate my response
THANK YOU!

SOURCE: Kettle Keeps jolting out of place

Popcorn popper is approximately three weeks old and now the popcorn clogs up in the hopper (cooker pot), the gear quits turning, and we have to pry the popcorn out. It worked perfectly when we first got it and now it is nothing but a pain to use. We tried several popcorns, cooking oils and amounts of oils, but the problem continues. I noticed the small spring located on the lower shaft doesn't cover the entire shaft. Is it supposed to be longer? Your prompt reply for a solution would be greatly appreciated or we will have to return the unit to our local retailer where we purchased it.

SOURCE: popcorn jamming in kettle

The only real solution is to put less kernels in kettle - it pops so fast that it jams up and burns. Adding a little more oil usually helps as well.

SOURCE: need popcorn popper kettle for ccp-509 popper

adavis_NPG had the right number for Nostalgia Group. The price was $35.00 including shipping when I ordered it.
920-347-9122 is the correct number to call. I got disconnected the first try and had to call back so be patient if it happens to you. The person who answered was very helpful and very friendly.

Need parts for a Cretor Diplomat 20 oz

Here are the Diagrams for Diplomat kettles, and dump assemblies for models built after 1993. The handles for earlier models are very different to this, and I don't have the diagrams. You should be able to get the parts from Cretors, or any concessions dealer around the country.

I have an econopop 14 and the stirrer gears jump erratickly and dont turn the stirrer when popcorn is put into the pot . everything seems to turn free . What would you suggest doing ?


This is a really old question, but.

Check to verify that the needle bearing is not missing. I is a small round part above the gear on the agitator shaft. Also see how worn the crossbar bushing is. There should only be a minimum of loose play in the shaft moving it side to side.

Make sure the lid assembly is not installed backwards on the kettle casting. The lip part of the kettle is the front or left side, and the cord should come out of the bottom towards the doors/operator side.

The popcorn gets stuck in the kettle until it burns


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.
