Whirley crank spins without spinning the popcorn bars in the pot

The crank spins but doesn't spin the popcorn bars in the pot. The bar that the gray cog surrounds rotates, but the gray cog doesn't spin when I'm trying to pop popcorn. Is my transmission shot? Should I try AAMCO or is there a simple repair? My e-mail is

The plastic gear could be cracked. That's what happened to ours. Contact the company and they will send you a new lid.

Hello I have a 39s popcorn machine . I have power kettle spins but not get hot . anything I can do ?

It could be a bad switch, plug, thermostat or heating element. These items will need to be tested by a qualified electrician to determine which are faulty and causing the element not to heat 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).

When turning agitator on it gets jammed in the spur gear.

This is a hard symptom to troubleshoot, it can have many different causes.
1. Is the stire wire in the kettle straight and spinning freely?
2. Does the agitator shaft spin freely in the crossbar?
3. Is there a small needle bearing on top of the spur gear attached to the kettle? it is a small metal circle that spins independently of the agitator shaft located ontop of the kettle spur gear, it can fall off.
4. The plastic block in the cabinet roof that has the motor spur gear coming out of it, is it cracked?
5. Does the motor turn when the switch is turned on with the kettle in the dump position?

All of these can lead to an answer of why the agitator stops turning while popping.

My the light comes on, and the pot heats up, but it will now spin. Any suggestions?

Check the wires to the motor assembly, short of that it is not fixable.

Ccp-509 popcorn kettle stop spinning when popcorn begins to pop. It won't pop out of the kettle.

Normally that is caused by too many kernels used. It pops too fast and jams up in the kettle. It could be a problem with the kettle though. Call 920-347-9122 for help with it.

Back to basics machine-Is the cover supposed to be fastened on by the big clip under the handle?

yes, this popper is the same at the Whirley Pop, which is the original. There shoud be a clip on the side opposite of the handle and one that is underneath the handle. Both should be fastened.

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.
