We have a Back To Basics popcorn popper that has a broken piece. The piece is the clear see-through plastic top. Where can we find a new piece?


West Bend took over this company and no longer provides plastic window replacements. I fixed mine by super gluing the window and attaching a small strip of wood on top of the 2 plastic window pieces with small bolts (super glue pieces so wood can be properly attached because glue alone will not hold up to the heat). Not attractive but it works. (West Bend rep told me windows break because of high heat, but I only used mine over medium heat; I think they break at the spot where the raised lid hits the gear mechanism holder.)

<p>How to repair/reuse plastic suction cups<br /> <p>Plastic suction cups are used in many applications to hold things to hard smooth surfaces like glass, ceramic, laminate, metal, plastic, etc. With time the suction cups loose their holding (suction) strength due to hardening or deterioration.

My mount at the back of my Tom Tom does not stay secure and also the suction cup is not so good. How do I secure this? Thank you


This is pretty common and a regular aftermarket universal one is my recommendation to you.

Another issue is that the screen in the area you want to attach must be super clean. I use isopropynol to clean the area and the back of the suction cup only then do I wet it slightly with clean water (don't lick it LOL)

These cups are also subject to suction failure in large temperature swings (I live in Canada so I can tell you about those)

The after market ones do seem better from personal experience.

There is a black disc but I do not see any instructions for using it.Does it mount on the windshield?


my Magellen came with a black disk with adhesive on 1 side. Intended to be adhered to any smooth surface (e.g., windshield). The mount for my unit includes a suction cup. So, mount black disk to windshield and attach suction cup to smooth side of black disk. Be sure disk is positioned where suction cup and bracket and GPS will have sufficient room to mount everything.

Tom tom gps adhesive plate


Use an 'alcowipe' available from your local chemist.
The alcohol in the wipe will disolve the glue and will not affect your windscreen.

Aternatively get a bottle of 'Spirit Alcohol', also available from the chemists and use a cloth to dissolve the glue

Windshield Mounting Unmounting


first the round plate... that has a sticky circle on the bottom.... you remove the tape and stick it on a surface where you want the gps... then when you want to mount the gps you suction cup it to that disk. now for the suction cup... when it is disengaged the plastic suction cup will be loose. to attach it to the plate or window... you swing the small arm on the base of it up or down... you will see as it will lock the suction... the gps should clip onto the holder so you can leave the holder where it is and remove the gps and slip it into your pocket.

Not the best instructions but you will get the idea

How to mount tomtom 125 to the car


Alcohol works to a great degree to clean some surfaces. I have used lighter fluid to dissolve glue or adhesive residue that may exist. The alcohol will not work on a poorly cleaned surface. And lighter fluid does not seem to harm plastics. Use sparingly and clean in two or three apps.
Your solution seems to be that you are trying to attach the GPS suction cup to the dash without the plastic disc that comes with the unit. Glue the disc onto as flat a part of the dash as possible, Prefferably on the top of the dash. Then attach the Tom Tom with the cup onto the disc. A slight downward pressure while turning the locking handle is all that is necessary. I had a momentary adjustment time to learn how to lock mine. Love the TomTom GPS compared to the Navigon I returned to get an
XL330 S.

Suction cup problem


Make sure your windshield and the bottom of the suction cup is clean. Clean it with some warter & detergent and wipe dry. Try wetting the bottom of the suction cup before applying it to the window.

I recommend not using the window mount. I recommend using the dash friction mount. You take the risk of cracking your LCD screen when it falls.

1. The dash friction mount will not fall.
2. It's easily removable/
3. It's legal in all 50 states (window mount is not).

Hello rkfowler,

While the suction cup mounts included with most GPS units are very effective, they certainly can fail. It sounds like you are doing everything you can to make it work: cleaning both the windshield and the cup itself. You also might try putting a few drops of water onto the suction cup before affixing it.

If the suction cup mounts aren't working out for you, Garmin does have a couple of other options including a vehicle mount that uses a super strong adhesive or a friction style mount. These are available from Garmin directly on their website (www.Garmin.com) or through your local consumer electronics store, such as Best Buy.

Best Regards,
Ken
