20 Most Recent Nostalgia Electrics KPM-508 Popcorn Maker Questions & Answers

The thermostat built into the kettle stops the kettle from heating at a prescribed temperature. usually around 425 F. This is hot enough to smoke and cause instant burns, but is the required temp for popping popcorn.

I do not know of a "thermal fuse" built into popcorn machines. Mechanical thermo stats are not flawless. they can and do malfunction, either too cold or too hot. the model popper you have is not adjustable, or repairable.

If you are tripping a electrical circuit breaker that is a different problem not related to kettle heat. It is a symptom of an overloading problem of your outlet, or a ground fault in the popcorn popper.

Not replaceable, but you know that.

That is a thermostat. it should have continuity at room temp, and open at popcorn popping temps. There are no replacement parts for this manufacturer.

There are no wiring diagrams for this manufacturer.

General wiring practices are that the Hot wire(black) goes to the thermostats, and the neutral wire( White ) is attached to the heat element for the return.

Switches are on the Black wires to break the circuit before power reaches the item it is controlling. A white wire on a switch is for the return from the light in the switch.

Double check the corn measurements, and adequate power supply. Other then that you have to return it, you cannot repair that brand.

Your power cord I would follow into the machine and hunt for a broken wire or a blown fuse possibly. Most pop corn makers are just about like a coffee pot. They have a klixon to control the temp and a couple of bullet fuses in line to prevent over heating. All of which is loacted on the base of the kettle. I wish I could be there to help ya get that popcorn popper working. Feetball season is nearly upon us.

The User Manual for the OFP-901 Old Fashioned Popcorn Maker can be found here:


Instructions for use can be found on page.

This model is a HOT AIR popper; oil SHOULD NOT be used in this machine.

Simply fill the kernel cap with with kernels and then pour the kerneles down the hole on the top of the unit. Plug in to power supply. Turn on; kernels should pop 2 tp 2 1/2 minutes.

Make sure you place a large enough bowl under the chute!
