Then a jumper wire from the other thermostat terminal goes to one of the two terminals on the element. Then the white wire goes to the other element terminal. The ground or green attaches to the metal surface inside.

Make sure your agitator arms are properly functioning. If the corn is not being properly stirred, it will not pop. Also, make sure you are using the correct type of popcorn oil.

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.

You have a short. Unplug the unit, open it up and see if you find any burnt marks.

I have a Star 49 popcorn machine, the kettle trips the breaker when attached, but if I detach it (no hinge connection, no metal to metal contact), it does not. Thoughts?

I would suspect that the heating element is shorted to ground, which machine provides.
