Why does the trip switch in my house go off when I plug in the pop corn machine

I feel that its the heat regulator solenoid that is faulty as the trip is ok when I disable the regulator.

That does indeed sound like the mag is overheating and the thermostat is tripping, but it's probably not the steam.

Do you feel a good amount of air flowing through the vents?

If the cooling fan is not running or the air vents are blocked, that wil allow the magnetron to overheat.

If air flow is not a problem, then you may have a defective magnetron.

Assuming it's still under warranty, it would be best to let a Magic Chef-authorized servicer handle it.

SOURCE: Fuse blew on opening main door; main oven not heating; everything else ok

I agree with earlier diagnosis.
It will be the fan element blown.

SOURCE: my dishwasher trips the electicity suply

Hi,
I had the same problem. Rather than pay 'an expert' to come round and try and fix it I thought I'd have a look myself first to see if there was anything obvious. After unplugging, safety first, I went to put it on it's side. As I did so water flowed from the bottom.
After cleaning up and taking the bottom panel off I found there was actually an overflow well at the bottom with a trip switch. There's a float which, if this well fills with water, rises and trips the dishwasher. Now I'm not sure if this trip swtich should just trip the dishwasher only and not the whole house ... so maybe there was another issue related to the water in the well touching something else. However, having emptied the well, tidied and dried things up a bit, put things back together ... it worked.

So ... before paying through the nose to get someone to come out and do this ... try it yourself first.

Please note, I'm not an expert, just someone who wanted to see if I could fix my dishwasher on my own. Just take care making sure your dishwasher is disconnected from the power, I mean totally unplugged before taking things apart. Good luck

The machine has been working well but recently when switched on now trips the whole house safety circuit.


Try plugging something else into the outlet socket to see if that throws the trip fuse. If it does then the outlet is faulty. Try plugging the washer into another outlet and see if it throws the trip in which case the machine is suspect.

How do I use my popcorn maker model pm8501


Really.... If you can't figure that out
You shouldn't be near the machine...

Pour some oil in a pan... Just enough to cover the bottom
Or use butter
Sprinkle corn in botom 2 layers deep.
Place over heat and shuffle
As soon as first corn pops .. Place lid over pan!
Remove pan from heat when popping slows down!
Serve with butter & salt

Mmmmm

Washing machine trips electric when fills with water


From the symptons described, I would suspect that the heating element is faulty, disconnect the heater, and try it again, if it does not trip, then replace heater.
Please rate my solution.

Hotpoint aquarious wd 440 two years old tripping main board


A faulty heater in both a washing machine and dishwasher will trip swithes because they both cause an earth........the chances are you heater needs replacing......the reason its tripping after a short period is probably beacause the cycle doesnt start heating the water until after approx 15-20 mins depending on the cycle chosen

Directions for presto carmel cormer model #0500001


I have the directions for this; send me your address and I'll mail you a copy or I could probably just I have a Presto Caramel Corn'r. These are the directions:
You need a large mixing spoon, wax paper and the following ingredients:
2 T cooking oil
¼ c popcorn

¼ c butter or margarine
½ c brown sugar
2 T light corn syrup
¼ t salt

1/8 t soda

Then follow these steps
1) Pour cooking oil and popcorn into the unit base. Place cover on base. Plug cord into base and then into wall outlet. The signal light will glow when unit is heating. When popping is completed, the signal light will go out indicating that the heat has shut off automatically. Unplug the cord from the wall outlet. Tip unit upside down so popped corn falls into cover. Set cover with popped corn aside. You may want to use a paper towel to remove excess oil and unpopped corn or hulls from the base before making caramel sauce. NOTE: I pop corn for all the batches I intend to make first then do the next steps because you don’t have to clean it each time to make a new batch.
2) To make caramel sauce, combine butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and salt in the base. Plug into wall outlet. Heat mixture stirring constantly until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally for three minutes. Unplug cord from outlet and unit.
3) Place the mixing band on the base. Add baking soda and stir until mixture is evenly colored, light and foamy. Add popped corn, stirring to evenly coat with caramel sauce. Remove mixing band. Pour caramel coated corn onto wax paper and separate kernels. Let stand a few minutes before serving. Wash unit before popping more corn.

Was using microwave to pop quite a few bags of pop corn to feed birds. Microwave is hot to the top to the touch. lights on the front of the microwave are not lit up, no power. WALL RECEPTCALE is active.


Plug fuse may have blown. Replace that first or test.
Internal temperature trip may have cut out (if present)
Microwave generator (magnatron) may have failed.
Internal power supply may have failed due to moisture.

Very likely this machine is dead.
Save energy - and cash, by feeding birds stale bread and raw seed and corn.
Hopefully the next microwave oven will last longer.

The cost of repair may be more than the cost of replacement. Ask your nearest repair shop how much to replace the microwave unit, and check the power supply.

Sorry I can't offer a quick fix for you.

Not popping the corn


Here is the link to the user manual for your machine; http://www.gopresto.com/downloads/instructions/04821.pdf 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 :)
