Hi Tracy, I need more information if i am to try and help ! e.g. approx size and shape, what is the facia like, does it have a cage and element or does it have the new style gauze and kettle element coil ? At a guess i would say it has the old cage and element ( this is a ring covered in viterous enamel and it has slots all the way around, just behind this is a bright silver coloured element which looks like it has vertical slots.A common problem is the coating of the outer cage breaks up and this causes a dead short on the machine which either blows a fuse or even worse does not blow a fuse and tries to heat up like an electric fire!!! Without knowing the machine i could not say for sure but i think the outer cage that holds the element is at fault, but unfortunately normally when this goes to dead short it normally takes out the heat control as well. But there is a way to test this. let me know more info !!!!

How to make cotton candy with Elite Candyfloss machine? (Did not come with manual

Not sure if you have purchased it or hired for an event. Elite appears to be more of an event hire company and not makers of Candy floss machines. If you are looking for instructions on how to use these gadgets then this youtube video might be of help. It might help if you provide the model number of the appliance you have.

Candy floss

On commercial machines there are leather floaters (tabs) that create the wind that floats the cotton candy mid bowl. If they are missing, or twisted the wrong direction the floss will fall to bottom of bowl.

Twist the leathers like an airplane propeller with the leading edge down, to force the breeze upwards. If they are twisted backwards the sugar falls and collects around the head.

My econofloss 3017SS is not heating

The most common cause to a not heating problem is that the heat ribbon is installed wrong. If it was recently replaced, the 2 wire terminals need to be connected to the 2 different buss strips in the head. If both are attached to the same one, then nothing happens.

2. If this is not the problem, then inspect the brushes and slip rings in the lower spinner head. Remove the access covers and see that the brushes are tight against a shiny smooth Brass slip ring. it is common for brushes to get stuck in holders and stop contacting rings.

3.last item is the heat control.

These are pretty advanced repairs, and should be attempted by a service technician with assistance from a Gold Medal service person.

Need instrution

You put sugar or "floss" in the center of the spinner. When it heats up (takes a while) a spider web like material forms in the bowl. You take a "paper cone" and twirl it around to collect this which is the cotton candy! Find a party store to get the cones and you can also get the "floss" which is sugar with a bit of coloring and sometimes glycerin.

Clean the spinner after use.

No Heat!

Sometimes too much dust around the heating elements can cause the heater to switch off to prevent a fire. Check for dust build up first. You can try using a can of compressed air that can be found at many electronic stores.
