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.

My popcorn maker won't spin the kernels. I think it's the stir rod?


There are many possible problems that will cause your agitator to not spin, But you said the gear in the cabinet comes off easily, it should not.
There is a flat part of the motor shaft that extends thru the top of the cabinet that the gear should be tightened onto with an allen wrench via a set screw. This is the first place to check. When the motor is on, you should not be able to stop that cabinet gear from turning. (not easily anyway).

When turning agitator on it gets jammed in the spur gear.


This is a hard symptom to troubleshoot, it can have many different causes.
1. Is the stire wire in the kettle straight and spinning freely?
2. Does the agitator shaft spin freely in the crossbar?
3. Is there a small needle bearing on top of the spur gear attached to the kettle? it is a small metal circle that spins independently of the agitator shaft located ontop of the kettle spur gear, it can fall off.
4. The plastic block in the cabinet roof that has the motor spur gear coming out of it, is it cracked?
5. Does the motor turn when the switch is turned on with the kettle in the dump position?

All of these can lead to an answer of why the agitator stops turning while popping.

How do I get the agitator rotate


The motor in the top of the machine should rotate the gear sticking out of the top of the cabinet when you turn the switch on. This gear should connect with a gear on the top of the shaft that sticks out of the kettle when the kettle is in the correct upright position and turning the stir rod.

Make sure the kettle is installed correctly, and the switch is in the on position. If the motor is not turning with the switch on, it is broken and should be returned to store if possible.
There are no repair parts for this brand popper, and they cannot be repaired.

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.

I have an econopop 14 and the stirrer gears jump erratickly and dont turn the stirrer when popcorn is put into the pot . everything seems to turn free . What would you suggest doing ?


This is a really old question, but.

Check to verify that the needle bearing is not missing. I is a small round part above the gear on the agitator shaft. Also see how worn the crossbar bushing is. There should only be a minimum of loose play in the shaft moving it side to side.

Make sure the lid assembly is not installed backwards on the kettle casting. The lip part of the kettle is the front or left side, and the cord should come out of the bottom towards the doors/operator side.

Kettle Keeps jolting out of place


Popcorn popper is approximately three weeks old and now the popcorn clogs up in the hopper (cooker pot), the gear quits turning, and we have to pry the popcorn out. It worked perfectly when we first got it and now it is nothing but a pain to use. We tried several popcorns, cooking oils and amounts of oils, but the problem continues. I noticed the small spring located on the lower shaft doesn't cover the entire shaft. Is it supposed to be longer? Your prompt reply for a solution would be greatly appreciated or we will have to return the unit to our local retailer where we purchased it.
