SOURCE: Trips circuit when you turn on the Kettle heat

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.

Have you checked to assure that the warmer switch and the kettle heat switch are both functioning properly? Also the timer on the bucket seasoning pump control box determines the length of time the heat element of the bucket pump is at HIGH HEAT i also suggest you take a look at this pdf of the manual of your machine under the troubleshooting guide area if you have any further questions please message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation Thanks again

Would like to check the Gold Medal thermostats in my model #2003 machine. The 550f for 12, 14, 16oz kettles p/n 47082. Do they check good with a resistance value? And do you know what they should m

You can test it for continuity. Remove from the circuit, set your meter to highest Rx value. Using heat gun, hair dryer on high or candle heat the t/stat. At some point it will click on/off depending on type. If its a NO it will click on, then off on removal of heat, if its a NC it will click off then on, with removal of heat. Many times the trip temp is printed on the body.

Popcorn maker worked great for a matinee then for the evening show the kettle no longer heated up

Your kettle has had a ground fault, and damaged the switch in the process. Do not Continue to Try and use.

Take the kettle to a gold medal dealer, and replace the switch in the cabinet.

New kettle for the gay 902 whiz bang popper

Yes you can purchase new kettles complete or just the bottom half most of the time with the gold medal brand. When you see the prices you may want to consider repairing or rebuilding it. That's what I do unless there are so many parst needed that a new one would make more sense because I believe you will get a warranty with the complete kettle?

Popcorn maker overheats and shuts off

This could be the circuit breaker tripping, or a failed thermostat, or a loose wire that disconnects when warmed up.

What is the make and model of your Popcorn Maker?

I have 2003 model whiz bang popcorn machine that takes forever to pop the corn

Old popcorn is the first thing to check, and that you are measuring correctly. 12oz of popcorn is the correct amount in a 3 min popping cycle. always time the 2nd batch.

That model popper has 2 heat elements, and 2 thermo stats that control them. If the first 2 things to check are good, then you dropped a thermo stat or heater and it is operating on 1 heater instead of 2.

Gold Medal 2005 Popcorn Maker electricutes you if no shoes on

That machine is not properly grounded. If it was it would be tripping the breaker every time.

Somewhere there is a ground fault in the machine, any wire or heater is suspect, also the broken light bulb is suspect.

Get the machine grounded properly, and start flipping switches. which every switch trips the breaker, that is where to start looking for the ground fault.

The popcorn is not popping. the kernals are just burning. help! please!

You may not be using enough oil. You should have 3 measures of popcorn, to one measure of oil. So if you are using 12 ounces of corn, you should use 4 ounces of oil.

Keeps tripping the breaker

What size breaker?

as long as there are no other appliances or anything on the circuit a 15 amp breaker will do...if you have alot of other items on that same circuit you either need a larger breaker, or use a different circuit all together
