Question about Whirlpool Gold GB2SHDXPS Stainless Steel

1 Answer

Popping sound Our refrigerator is brand new. It started making a serious popping sound constantly shortly after we went grocery shooping (like popcorn or buttons in the dryer). It wasn't empty before, and we only put in a small supply of groceries. It's 9:30 p.m. and I won't be able to sleep. HELP!

Karmakin, the popping you hear is probably the refrigerant entering the evaporator coils. Some are worse than others. You need to call for service since this is brand new. Sometimes they can insulate the cap tube going into the evap and the dryer to supress this noise. Best thing to do is call for service...Catriver..post back.

I just bought a 1.1 size microwave. I tried popping a full size bag of popcorn using 2 pushes of the popcorn setting. The bottom popcorn came out black. Any idea why?

The microwave burnt it. It will be a bit of trial and error with using your new microwave and will also depend (in this case) the brand of pop corn you've cooking. Check the recommendations on the pop corn packaging for time and heat range. Happy popping!

Microwave doesn't popcorn all the way on popcorn seeting

Most M/W use an estimated setting based on ounces of corn. I've found that many do not tell you how much is in each bag. The bags usually have no size markings. Check the face of the box for something like "2 each 3 oz bags".
* Try to use a normal re-heat setting (at full power) and cook a bag using the a minute longer than the recommended setting. Listen to the popping sounds and stop the M/W when the pops slow to 3-4 seconds. (2-3 seconds with 'Kettle' corn) Note the time lapsed and this is your correct setting. You may try the popcorn menu to find a similar setting but really your best bet is to use the method above as it's the most accurate.
* Note; Old or stale corn will not all pop (it dries out as it gets older and there is not enough moisture in the kernnal to steam pop.)
* M/W varies from model to model and brand to brand. Only way to check is to try several settings to get the best results.
* Pop corn brands vary in quality. You will find the better name brands pop more.
* Once you find a good popping brand then stick to that size and brand. (unless they change it on you.)
* If your really stuck on getting every corn kern popped then go with an air popper. It won't come out of cooker till it pops.

Good movie, don't forget the goobers, milk duds, frosty...

Popcorn machine model tpc-603 manual

Treat Time Model TPC-603

Turn on light and popcorn buttons, for 2 minutes to heat up the popper's kettle.


Then turn off the popcorn button, this stops the turning gears while loading oil and popping corn.

Warning the stainless steel kettle will be hot. Might want to wear an oven mitt.
1 tablespoon of oil (I use coconut oil) and 1/3 cup of popping corn. This makes est. 6 to 8 cups of popcorn.

NOW turn on the popcorn button so the gears start turning, this turns a wire on the bottom inside the kettle to keep the kernels from sticking or burning to the bottom.

If making multi batches, during the process it states in the manual to allow it to cool 5 to 10 minutes. I normally pop 3 to 4 batches and then let it cool down.

When finished popping, turn off both the light and popcorn buttons.

We just hooked up a new k410 lenovo computer and it has a thumping sound (sort of like popcorn popping in the distance, or a pop of boiling water). Do you have a clue ?

Never heard of such a thing. Only thing that comes to mind is a cable rubbing against a fan, but that sound differs. Take it back if brand new. No way to start off.

Have a kitchenaid microwave KHMS2040WSS brand new. Is there a way to set the popcorn sensor for a smaller bag? Right now it is set for 3.5oz and burns all the popcorn.

I have never seen a microwave that doesn't burn popcorn if you use the "popcorn" button. Why the manufacturers keep putting them on I'll never understand. There's nothing you can do change the presets on an oven since they are built into the controller. Instead of relying on the oven, you should follw the directions on the bag. These tell you to use high power, stay by the oven and stop the cooking when the time between pops drops to 1 or 2 seconds. Stored heat will continue to pop kernels for a bit, and you won't cremate your popcorn. You'll also avoid the possibility of the bag catching fire and damaging the oven, which I have seen several times. Finally, don't expect 100% of the kernels to pop. There wil always be a few duds, and extending the cooking time just results in burned popcorn.

Do i need to add oil to the machine

oil is not necessary for this brand of popper. The seeds will pop themselves. Just make sure you don't overfill it with seeds. You have to turn it off when it is done. You'll need a bowl to catch the popped popcorn. Wait 15 minutes after popping before starting again.
