Inleiding

These instructions explain how to take apart the popcorn popper. This could be useful if it is not working properly or if the stirrer is jammed. The only tool needed is a #2 Phillips screwdriver. All the screws except the four large screws attaching the base to the heating plate are identical. Be careful with exposed wires and do not plug in the popper without the wires connected properly.

  1. Detach the cover/serving bowl from the popper.
    • Detach the cover/serving bowl from the popper.

    • Flip the base of the popper over and remove the four 14 mm Phillips #2 screws attaching the bottom cover to the base.

  2. Removing the bottom  cover exposes the internals of the popper. The base holds together the centrally mounted motor and the wires for the power cord and heating element.

  3. Remove the two black wire twist caps, and unwind the different wires. During reassembly, make sure the wires are strongly twisted together (twist clockwise) and the wire caps are firmly attached. Avoid swapping the polarity during reassembly. The neutral (ridged) wire connects to the left motor wire and the white wire to the heater.

    • Remove two more 14 mm Phillips #2 screws attaching the white plastic holding the wall cord to the base.

  4. Remove the two 14 mm Phillips #2 screws from the motor. Remove the motor from the popper. A spring located in the shaft may force the motor out when the screws are sufficiently loosened.

  5. Remove the four 50 mm screws attaching the base to the heating pan.
    • Remove the four 50 mm screws attaching the base to the heating pan.

    • Removing these screws takes significant force.

  6. Remove the base from the rest of the device.
