Then you are stuck with it, either that or you search for a replacement receptacle online & then take it back

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.

I would check your local restaurant supply store. They will lead you in the right direction.

Don't know if this will help:

The heating element may have burned out - do you know anyone who can test it?

It may possibly also have a thermal fuse inside - that's not something you can easily replace, but it's cheaper to have someone replace that then to have them replace the heating element.
