Popcorn popper isn't popping popcorn


If it heats up, your popcorn may be old and dried out. If it doesn't heat up and the stirring rod does not turn, check your power cord for defects. Procedure: plug in the popper (check both ends of the cord!), turn it on, and gently wiggle the cord right at the plug or where it goes into the popper, and watch the stirring rod to see if it moves. If it starts and stops as you wiggle the cord, you've found the break in the cord. Repair it or replace it (West Bend lists it online for $5) and be more careful with the cord in the future (never unplug by yanking on the wire, always pull on the plug itself).

If the stirring rod turns and there is no heat, the thermostat or thermal fuse is probably open. This can happen in some poppers if the air vents are blocked on the bottom. Remove the obstruction from the vents, let everything cool off, and try again. If it does not heat up from a cold start, there may be a blown thermal fuse inside. If you decide to replace the thermal fuse or thermostat, it MUST have the same temperature and current rating as the original.

Will thermostat stop kettle from overheating and blowing thermal fuse


The thermostat built into the kettle stops the kettle from heating at a prescribed temperature. usually around 425 F. This is hot enough to smoke and cause instant burns, but is the required temp for popping popcorn.

I do not know of a "thermal fuse" built into popcorn machines. Mechanical thermo stats are not flawless. they can and do malfunction, either too cold or too hot. the model popper you have is not adjustable, or repairable.

If you are tripping a electrical circuit breaker that is a different problem not related to kettle heat. It is a symptom of an overloading problem of your outlet, or a ground fault in the popcorn popper.

Whirlpool Microwave MH6700xW-0 Blows internal fuses regulary


Assuming your power line voltage is okay, it would not surprise me that after 27 years, your high voltage capacitor is drying out and increasing its capacitance. This will cause variance in the high voltage output, which can stress the magnetron and increase current consumption.

MY dryer no longer generates heat. I would like to find and check the fuse before I call in a professional. I have it half taken apart and I still can't find it! Any help would be much appreciated.


check the Heating element thermal cut-off (thermal fuse) 309 degrees and high-limit thermostat 250 degrees use a multimeter to test the continuity

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).

TRYING TO FIND THERMAL FUSE. MICROTEMP G4A00 TF216C


Unfortunately, YoTeach's initial solution is in error, I believe. YoTeach mentions that typical temps for brewing water are less than 200F, and THAT seems OK, from a couple of quick searches.
However, the component that is being replaced is not necessarily working at the same temperature as the water needs to be.
The Microtemp G4A00 series has lots of temperatures, and the TF216C means, AFAIK, that Tf is 216C(elsius). See, for example, the datasheet here:
http://www.farnell.com/datasheets/625786.pdf
Tf is the temperature at which fuse opens. So, the person ACTUALLY needs a thermal fuse that opens (breaks the connection) at 216C.
Therefore, either of the two fuse temperatures mentioned: 128 & 140C, would open too soon: i.e. at too LOW a temperature.
While 216C may seem like a high temperature (420F), for the fuse to open, the thermal fuse is often very near the heating element. For comparison, I have a Gevalia CM500 coffee pot, and the thermal fuses in my particular unit are Microtemp G4A00 184C- which is about 363F.
If anyone thinks I am in error on this, please feel free to contact me: jim underscore peak at Hotmail dot com - and I'll be happy to correct this post.

Heating Element stopped working


remove the heat element cover attached to the element will be a thermal fuse it looks like a silver tube with a flat end and, a pointed end; remove and, replace the fuse; radio shack sells the fuse

My popcorn machine wont heat up


First, if you have another cord like this one (for example, a coffee pot cord) plug it into the popper and see if it works.

If it's not the cord, it's probably a blown thermal fuse inside the unit. Could be a heating element broken as well. If you don't have appliance repair experience, I would take it to a repair shop.

Heating


most likely the thermal fuse blew... Ohm it out and if its open then replace it. Take yours off, take it to your local Radio Shack
