Question about Paragon 1911-6 Antique Popcorn Maker

1 Answer

Tired Motor We have had a Paragon 1911-6 Popcorn Maker at our bar for over three years. We use it constantly, and it is very well maintained. Lately, the motor does not start when it is switched on, however, it starts after a minute or two. Could the motor be dirty, or is it just worn out? If this is the case, can we order a new motor, or do we need a whole new machine?

Wearever pots pans repairs


This is the wrong paragon. Paragon popcorn machines have only been around for approx 15 years. They were GMI prior, and did not make pots and pans.

After clening the kettle it blows breakers


You got the Heat element and or thermostat wet. Open the kettle to expose the electronics and let it dry for days. try again it might dry out.

Or you will need to replace the heat element, thermostat, and probably the wires. if it hasn't dried out by now.

Popcorn not yellow-like at the movies


Flavocol is usually pretty good - use about 1/8 cup Flavocol for every 1/3 cup popcorn.

If it still isn't working out for you, try Cinemagic Popcorn packs - they give you yellow popcorn kernels and special yellow butter all in one-pack to give that yellow-popcorn look.

Sealed pot lid


Heat the pot again -- the positive pressure inside will break the seal and allow the lid to come off.

Cooking Pot Return Problems


I use an old heavy 3-quart alumnium sauce pan with a loose-fitting lid, canola oil, and high heat with about 1/2-cup of standard grocery-store yellow popcorn. I get the empty pot nice and hot, add the oil, then the corn, then the pot lid. I shake it occasionally, but basically let it go until the lid starts to rise off the pot, and I don't hear any more pops. Pour it into a large bowl, toss it with very fine sea salt, and go to town! It's also fantastic made with bacon fat, but you need to use slightly lower heat to keep it from burning and prepare for visitors: The smell of popcorn and bacon fat draws crowds.
