Re: Not popping the corn
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 :)

You cannot. All poppers of that style will a some "fall out". The better commercial machines have very little as the kettles are deeper, but you cannot eliminate it. The unpopped kernels are not reusable.
Does your popper have a butter melting cup at the top? (The one we had years ago did.) Remove that cup from the popper and fill it with the unpopped kernels. (Fill loosely to level with the rim of the cup or less. Do not pack the kernels into the cup or overfill.) Then pour the kernels into the poppiing chamber. There should also be a fill line inside the popping chamber that indicates the maximum amount of popcorn to put in the chamber. Then put the measuring cup/butter melter back on the top of the popper.
1. Pour up to 1/3 cup of popcorn kernels in the base of the Popcorn
2. The use of oil is optional, but not necessary. If desired,
drizzle a small amount of vegetable oil over the unpopped kernels, then
stir to coat the kernels.
3. Place cover on the base bowl. Cook on High in the microwave for
approximately 3-5 minutes (microwave ovens vary tremendously!), or
until popping slows down. Allow Popcorn Popper to cool before repeated
use. Do not try to re-pop unpopped kernels.
4. Hand washing is recommended, but occasional washing in the top
rack of a dishwasher is acceptable for the bowl, but not the lid.
5. If popcorn burns easily or does not pop well, try placing a
shallow bowl, dish or plate upside down on the microwave turntable to
raise the popcorn popper up a bit.
I don't have a mechanical/electrical or other problem all I am trying to accomplish is finding a drawer that was accidently thrown out when some people assisting in cleaning up a school's fall festival dumped the left over popcorn into the trash bag and was not aware that the small drawer that catches left over unpopped kernals fell into the trash bag. The trash was picked up and now I am out a drawer that is needed to operate this machine in thecorrect manner. I just needed to know if you knew where I could find such a part. Thanks you
The problem you are having is the thermostat inside the kettle is getting weak these can be ordered from Star Manufacturing or a concessions supply place that does repairs Also Gold Medal Product has a similar thermostat that will work in your kettle pt# 47082 Just a FYI
I have the same problem, but overcame it with a reusable K-cup. They are available online and at some national chain stores for about $15.00.
It's a not as convenient as K-cups, but better than throwing out a $150 coffee maker.
Your drain pump is definitely blocked/jammed. Remove drum to pump hose from pump, after unplugging the machine from the wall socket, and clear any obstruction within the hose and/or pump chamber. Also clean out front filter.
