SOURCE: Salton Popcorn popper Model# PCST22Y

I owned one of these and it worked for 2 whole months.

It's a popcorn machine, how hard could it be? Make sure the stirring bar it tight on it's shaft, make sure the plastic bolt is tight. Add about 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil, and 1/4 to 1/3 cup popcorn kernels. Turn the machine on. Turn the machine off when the popcorn stops popping, or you might scorch the popcorn.

Cornditioner heating element burns out within 2 weeks. New element has burned spot in less than 3 minutes.


Make sure the voltage is correct and matches the power source.It is possible the blower is not turning to keep air blowing across it? There also should be a theremostat that shuts it off if its getting too hot. Any one of these could cause that to happen.

Heating element not working in old time Movietime popcorn maker


There are no replacement parts for Nostalgia Electrics equipment.

Double check that the kettle is plugged in, that the switch has power. If inclined open kettle and inspect wire connections and continuity, beyond that the popper is not fixable.

Try new popcorn, popcorn dries out and does not pop well after being opened.

If the popcorn does not pop, and just turns black then it is too cold. If it pops very rapidly and then burns it is too hot. It is almost never too hot if you shut it off fast enough.

Model 39A gets too hot too fast


That model has a thermostat (also called a high limit) that is set at 450F. it should produce a popping cycle of 3 mins, and yes will burn popcorn if you don't dump it fairly quickly.
The speed it heats cannot be too fast, there is only so many watts in the heat element. it may go to hot, but never to fast.
The best way to test temp is time the 2nd popping cycle with a stop watch. the second batch should be 3 mins +/- 30 seconds. if it is 4 mins it is too cold. a 2 min popping cycle is to hot.
A popper that is too cold is also popping poor quality popcorn, higher amount of unpopped kernels, and small chewy popcorn.
Measure carfully when doing time test popping. That model is 2oz oil, 6oz popcorn, and 1 tsp salt. Start timing when you put ingredients in, and stop when you dump it. The kettle must be hot, that is why you time the 2nd batch.

Is there a thermostat with this popcorn popper that prevents the popcorn from burning? Earlier models had one.


Yes, there is a thermostat inside that prevents the popper from overheating. I know because one is sitting on the desk in front of me. My popper pooped last night and popped only a quarter of the kernels, after several years of faithful service. So I took it apart today. Everything else checks out so I'm thinking the thermostat failed and isn't letting the popper get hot enough to work properly. Now I'm looking for a replacement thermostat.

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.

New Cuisinart Party Popper not heating


Align the tabs on the plate with the rectangular indentations on the base.
Squeeze tabs, set plate on base and release. This should lock the two pieces together.
