Re: Wiring

Hi kevin,


With the ground already hooked up, it does not matter which terminal you hook the X or Y too on the heater. The heater is AC and a resistive load.  This means it doesnot have polarity, and will work both ways.   You done good getting high temp connectors, do you have high temp wire?

My popcorn machine won't heat up

No heat at all most commonly used is just a burned wife connection in the kettle . I find that a lot of the time. To repair it you should use high temp nickel ring terminals. Standard ones won't last l long like these do. It might be time for a while new KETTLE wire set. Find a dealer in your area . They should help you determine what to do.

Wiring schematics

There are no wiring diagrams for this manufacturer.

General wiring practices are that the Hot wire(black) goes to the thermostats, and the neutral wire( White ) is attached to the heat element for the return.

Switches are on the Black wires to break the circuit before power reaches the item it is controlling. A white wire on a switch is for the return from the light in the switch.

Wiring diagram kettle

The wiring good the kettle is pretty simple. Black goes to x on the plug white is y and ground is the green terminal. In the kettle the black goes to one of the two terminals on the thermostat. Then a jumper wire from the other thermostat terminal goes to one of the two terminals on the element. Then the white wire goes to the other element terminal. The ground or green attaches to the metal surface inside.

Our popcorn machine is blowing the circuit when the kettle heat is turned on. Is there any way to fix it or any way to just buy a new kettle?

Mine is doing the same thing. Did you get yours fixed yet? If so, what was the problem? Its got to be the wiring. If you take off the bottom square wiring cover access, you will see the two main wires and a grounder all connected. Sometimes the connectors melt with the heat. Maybe that is what is causing the short.

Our little league has a Cretors GR6 popcorn machine. The kettle is not getting hot enough and the red light on the front panel wasn't on. This told me one of the two circuts on the heating element wasn't...

look Just hard wire into place, use a Connector Block, or mounting junction strip. Simply terminate everything safely to this and bypass that plug, if possible, As long as it is done professionally and safe your good to go. Remember to draw it out, and remember the MOST important wire is the Earth.

Will not heat up

The heating elements on a pop corn machine are fairly simple,and easy to test.If you get continuity through the element it is probably good.Usually the problem is a loose,or completely disconnected wire.You have to take the pan apart to check the elements anyway so when you do, check for loose or disconnected wiring.also check at the cord cap connection for loose wire connections.You may want to use a regular ohms tester because the resistance may be to high to cause some cheap testers to give you a signal(buzz,or light up).

The kettle will not get hot! The light comes on and the #1 and #3 switch both light up, but no heat!?!?!

We disassembled the kettle and noticed that the black wire had been disconnected from the base connector which is attached to the heating element. We re-attached the wire clip to the harness and it heated up on the first try. Please note that you may need to crimp the wire connector to the base for a stronger hold. My guess is that as we were moving the unit back and forth the wire connector had seperated.
