Re: thermostat hook up

Buenas tardes le estoy escribiendo desde La Grita Venezuela, para comentarles que adquiri una fuente de chocolate y las veces que he querido utilizarla el chocolate no sube hasta la torre y por lo tanto no se realiza el proceso de fuente como hago con este problema, tambien quisiera saber si venden los repuestos de los anillos plasticos de la torre.

Re: thermostat hook up

You can either call Gold Medal at 1-800-543-0862 or fix it yourself. There are only 3 wires going in. 2 are hot and 1 is the ground. All you need is a volt meter to determine the ground, and the other wires hook up as follows: 1 wire goes to one side of the heat element, the other wire goes to one spot on the thermostat. Then there's a jumper wire between the heat element and the thermostat.

Re: thermostat hook up

I actually just had a pleasant experience contacting Hellman Group, (The manufacturer of Nostalgia Electric popcorn machines). I called the main number, pressed 1 for customer support, and after 3 tries (got an answering machine the first couple of times), I got someone in customer service who was able to help me get the part I wanted. Not sure if they can give you a wiring diagram.

Trying to find kettle wiring drawing 3255

To order a manual from the factory the part# is 67834. Depending on how old this is , those kettles and or similar design had a issue with the nut comming loose that holds down the thermostat thight to the bottom of the pan. The loose nut would then bounce around in there until it touches a elect.connection and ground at the same time. It will short circuit the kettle and end up welding itself in place . so when you turn the kettle on it trips the circuit rite away. you have to dissasemble it and remove it . there is a new locking type nut avalible to replace it.

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.

Electric heat thermostat wire melted

The cause is a loose wire nut which creates arcing. This is a very common problem and the cause of many fires -- it's a result of low quality work.

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?
