Rather old Popaire 2

I have a 1980s Hamilton Beach Scoville Popaire 2 that has a thermal switch on the blower housing that seems to have quit working. Can you give me the specs on that so I can locate a generic replacement, or do you carry the parts for that old of a product? Otherwise, it works great--even after all these years!

Popcorn popper isn't popping popcorn


If it heats up, your popcorn may be old and dried out. If it doesn't heat up and the stirring rod does not turn, check your power cord for defects. Procedure: plug in the popper (check both ends of the cord!), turn it on, and gently wiggle the cord right at the plug or where it goes into the popper, and watch the stirring rod to see if it moves. If it starts and stops as you wiggle the cord, you've found the break in the cord. Repair it or replace it (West Bend lists it online for $5) and be more careful with the cord in the future (never unplug by yanking on the wire, always pull on the plug itself).

If the stirring rod turns and there is no heat, the thermostat or thermal fuse is probably open. This can happen in some poppers if the air vents are blocked on the bottom. Remove the obstruction from the vents, let everything cool off, and try again. If it does not heat up from a cold start, there may be a blown thermal fuse inside. If you decide to replace the thermal fuse or thermostat, it MUST have the same temperature and current rating as the original.

How to use


Put popcorn in bottom up to where the ring in bottom levels off for a maker full or less if you don't want a maker full. Cover with popcorn oil, I use the butter flavor oil. Put some butter inside of lid compartment and put lid back on butter compartment. Now just put lid onto popper and plug in. The light on side will come on and popper will start to heat. You will then hear it start to pop. Popping is finished when light on side goes out. Carefully lift the whole popper and shake right side up and then turn upside down and shake. Remove bottom, add some popcorn salt if you like and enjoy it right out of the lid. Delisious!!

How can i get instruction manual for popaire hot air corn popper?


Hey I was searching for the same Popaire 2 info and didn't find anything on websites or youtube... Then I asked my dad. lol He simply said:
1. Fill the top round section with popcorn kernels
2. plug it in
3. then slide open the same round section (where the kernels are) to have the kernels fall in the Popaire 2. It will pop the corn thereafter.
4. (BUTTER chamber thing) The little rectangular scooper-looking thing on the slope of the top is where you can put a chunk of butter that will melt from the hot air and drizzle into the popcorn popper as the popcorn is popping.
Hopefully someone will post more, like the Popaire 2 manual. :) Enjoy your popcorn!

We had purchased this machine New a bout 3 years ago, Had used it a bit but now it will not pop at all, the pot does seem not to heat up, Please advise as to what we can do? The model # is 207196. My e...


Most likely the problem is one of the following:
1. Your Heating Element went bad and needs replacing.
2. The On/Off Switch for the Kettle has gone bad.
3. A wire has come loose.

Since you are already out of the warranty period, if you have an electrician in the house, they could unplug the popper, remove the top dome and inspect the switch, look for loose wires, etc.

For replacement parts or further troubleshooting, call Nostalgia Electrics at 920-347-9122

Kettle does not work


you have probably re-wired the switch incorrectly or there is water in the wiring and the circuit is shorting, causing the fuses to blow. Also, is your electricity supply 120v or 240v?

Bought Presto Poplite New Used Once Never Worked Again ?


Welcome to FixYa, If my solution meets your approval, I'd appreciate a good ranking. Regarding the popper, I read the owner's manual for this model and it is a very simple machine. I had thought that there might me some type of interlock or switch that might be at fault for the malfunction but they don't. It seems that the unit is just filled with popcorn, plugged in and within two or three minutes you should have popcorn.

  • If you haven't already, try plugging the unit into another outlet.
  • If the unit is in an area with a G.F.I. outlet (these are rectangular and have a reset switch that can pop and make the outlet dead) check the outlet and if needed reset it by pushing the red button back in.
The good news is that Presto is a very old company with a great reputation for customer service. Their warranty is 2 years, but if you explain the situation and the unit is more than two years old, they may repair it for nothing. You would be responsible for the shipping. In fact, their warranty says to return it and just indicate the date purchased. They don't even require a receipt. They can be contacted at:

Service Department weekdays 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM (Central Time) at 1-800-877-0441

Finally, just in case you don't have the user's manual any longer, it can be viewed and saved at the following link:

Thanks again for allowing me to assist!
