If the switch is OK and you have. Power at the kettle plug and you are not getting any heat it's one of 3 things. Burned wire inside the kettle. this is common. Or it could be the thermostat is bad or the element itself is out?
WAIT! Do not add any oil or butter. I don't know what kind of machine you have, but only POPCORN goes inside the Popcornnow. I have an old one that melts butter on the top cover, although I don't recommend that. I recommend butter in the microwave. Repeat: DO NOT ADD OIL where the popcorn goes or you will set a fire.
That depends on which part you are cleaning. If you are trying to clean the heating element of the machine, do not attempt to use excessive force to remove the grim. It is normal to have a little brown coating on the heating element in popcorn machines.
However if you really desire, you should look for a stove or grill cleaner. They are usually a white fluid that you leave on, then scrub and remove. After that wash it with soap and water to remove the cleaner itself before using.
I just took over a position as Activiyies Director for a community association. Found the popcorn popper in the closet, no maual of course, I just cleaned it up, added kernals to metal cup & plugged it in. Within 3 minutes I had a huge bowl of fresh popcorn for the kids to enjoy. They love watching it pop. Only problem is finding the perfect way to season. Any suggestions???
Go to http://www.nostalgiaelectrics.com/ and click on their customer support link. At the bottom of their customer support page there is a box to enter the model number of your popcorn popper to get a manual.
Here is the link to the user manual for your machine;
If the kernels are not popping, then the heating element that heats the air is likely faulty and would need replacing -
Check page 4 of the manual for service info
Hope this helps :)
