It could also be a bad thermostat. I have seen where the thermostat will go bad and cause a direct short from the hot wire into the thermostat to ground . This would also be a good time to check the wire in the kettle cord?

The Kettle Agitator gets stuck. Appears the Rotating Center is Wobbly. . .

The motor output shaft bushing might have came loose I have seen where it falls out of the motor and the shaft becomes real wobbly and it will cause excessive wear in the kettle cross bar bushing too. also make sure the cross bar and lid assy. is not come loose from the kettle.

Why is my gold medal popcorn model # 2552 machine not heating to pop popcorn anymore?

A kettle not heating is either a switch, kettle wires, thermostat, or kettle heater.

Check that the kettle is plugged in tight, notice if the switch lights up when switched, then contact your local gold medal dealer for repairs. It is always cheaper to repair a gold medal kettle than replace.

Popcorn maker worked great for a matinee then for the evening show the kettle no longer heated up

Your kettle has had a ground fault, and damaged the switch in the process. Do not Continue to Try and use.

Take the kettle to a gold medal dealer, and replace the switch in the cabinet.

G12-Y galaxy popper will not heat up

Unplug the kettle and check voltage at the kettle reciprocal . If correct voltage is there with the kettle switch on put a ohm meter across the hot and neutral terminals of the kettle plug . If there is no continuity between them either a wire burned off in the kettle or the thermostat is bad. When they go out its usually open so no power will go thru it.

Will thermostat stop kettle from overheating and blowing thermal fuse

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.

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.

Add 2 teaspoons of your favorite popcorn cooking oil to the kettle. Then add 1/4 cup of popcorn kernels to the kettle. Turn the unit on and close the door. When popping sound slows down turn the unit OFF. Flip the kettle over with the crank handle to empty the kettle. Repeat process until desired amount of popcorn has been popped.

Kettle does not work

you have probably re-wired the switch incorrectly or there is water in the wiring and the circuit is shorting, causing the fuses to blow. Also, is your electricity supply 120v or 240v?

Trips circuit when you turn on the Kettle heat

When the fuse blows see what else in the house is out, maybe you have the circuit overloaded. Try putting the popcorn maker on a different unused curcuit to see if it still blows. Then you will know if it is the popcorn maker.
