SOURCE: I need a replacement motor for my popcorn machine.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Not sure where you got your part number from as it appears to cross to the 14 oz kettle assembly.
The motor PN 47038 is for the model 2121 and it is $69.75 + shipping

The Kettle Agitator gets stuck. Appears the Rotating Center is Wobbly. . .

The motor output shaft bushing might have came loose I have seen where it falls out of the motor and the shaft becomes real wobbly and it will cause excessive wear in the kettle cross bar bushing too. also make sure the cross bar and lid assy. is not come loose from the kettle.

Spinner on a Cretors popcorn popper will not work

If when you pick up the kettle to dump it you can spin the agitator in the pan with one hand easy then it is not stuck. check to make sure the motor switch is supplying voltage to the motor. If that is ok now that you have the front panel off look inside to see if the motor is turning but the drive head which comes up thru the pedistal isnt then the motor shaft pin has sheered off. if nothing is moving at all motor needs replacement. the list on those from the factory are over 600 so make sure its bad first.

It wont turn

Check motor on/off swith . If that is working then it's the motor or motor gear box (which is sold as a unit unless it is an old Star brand. They offered replacement gears for theirs.) All this is assuming you made sure the kettle agitator is not frozen up ?

My popcorn maker won't spin the kernels. I think it's the stir rod?

There are many possible problems that will cause your agitator to not spin, But you said the gear in the cabinet comes off easily, it should not.
There is a flat part of the motor shaft that extends thru the top of the cabinet that the gear should be tightened onto with an allen wrench via a set screw. This is the first place to check. When the motor is on, you should not be able to stop that cabinet gear from turning. (not easily anyway).

Agitator has come out of popcorn machine

if you have a gold medal popper, there is a weight on the shaft the sits over the middle hump of the stir wire. you must take the lid asembly off of the kettle to get the stir wire back in.
they do not fall out without some thing else wrong, check if the shaft is broken under neath the weight.

Pop corn spinner stop workin

That is a common problem in the Star Model 89. Replacement motors are available from restaurant parts supply houses.

They stopped making that model in 1992, so the part will be fairly expensive, in the $200-$300 range.

Stirrer motor not running

Most likely the motor will have to be replaced. This is probably a case of where buying a new popper is cheaper.
