The popcorn gets stuck in the kettle until it
I have a Popcorn machine from Nostalgia too that had this problem. I cleaned it out and everything but it still had the problem of the it getting stuck. After days of analizing, I found the solution. after a while the ceiling of the popcorn machine starts to fall in, lowering the handles of where the kettle goes. making the knob that turns being lower that the one that makes it turn, causing it to get stuck, all I did is add so leverage so the kettle is once again at the same level or higher. Making it turn with greater force and not getting stuck. In other words make sure the turning mechanism is leveled and not one lower than the other. preferably the kettle part being higher.

Inside of kettle quits turning and then popcorn
Hi, well inside the kettle is an inexpensive thing called a thermal fuse, this is a device that turns the unit off if overheats or goes over a certain temperature.
Sometimes these go faulty and shut down at too low a temperature, or are just faulty, ... now it can be that or perhaps even the thermostat, (The actual temperature Controller) well this maybe faulty, or the even sensor, the Thermistor, for the thermostat.
The only way to tell or fix these types of things is to replace the components concerned and see if there is a change?
