Question about Toastess TCP-6L Popcorn Maker
Have had for at least 6 months if not longer...love it, but all of a sudden, we plugged it i and it started smoking out the bottom? Why?
What type of smoke? Did it smell electrical? Is ther a possibly of oil leaking to lower part of unit? Popcorn oil. Has the unit been submergerged when cleaning? If it is not an electrical type smoke (smell) the take the unit outside and place it on a non flammmable surface, turn it on and then plug it in. If it's oil or dishwater residue, Let it burn it off, but watch it closely. In the part you would put oil,put a cup or two of water so the heat can be absorbed. Let me know if you will please. When the element has burned off thye whatevers, It will quit smoking. If it is electrical, it will not take long for it to do nothing. You can also remove the bottom cover and take a look see for any indication of burned wiring. The smell will definateltly ID an electrical problem. It's time for a new popcorn popper if it is electrical and if it smells electrical, take it apart to verify it before trashing it uN-PLUGGED WHEN HANDLING A QUESTIONABLE APPLIANCE. :-)
