TROUBLESHOOTING
LONG POPPING CYCLES
If your pop cycle is longer than 4 minutes, it can be the result of several things:
HEATING ELEMENT - One of the heating elements in the kettle may be burned out. This would result in
the kettle never reaching the proper operating temperature.
LOW VOLTAGE - If the machine is operated on low voltage, this could cause the kettle not to reach the
proper operating temperature. Voltage for each leg, with kettle turned on, must be at least 110v.
INADEQUATE SUPPLY LINES - Inadequately sized electrical supply lines, in addition to being a fire
hazard, would also prevent the kettle from reaching the proper operating temperature. Check with a
qualified electrician.
INFERIOR CORN - Inferior quality corn would result in longer popping cycles. Use only top quality hybrid
popcorn from reputable suppliers. Even then, if you let your corn pick up moisture or dry out, your
popping cycles will be slow.
KETTLE DOES NOT HEAT
Before you go any further, make sure the kettle lead-in cord is plugged in and the Kettle shunt trip
breaker is not tripped. The shunt trip beaker may trip during transit, if the breaker is reset then trips
again; contact a service technician for inspection/repair before going any further.
KETTLE HEAT SWITCH - Check the voltage to and from the Kettle Heat switch, and if the switch is
defective replace it.
CONTROL - A defective thermocouple lead will cause the kettle not to heat. Check for good connections
from the kettle to the control.
KETTLE AGITATOR - If the kettle agitator shaft is not rotating DO NOT Pop corn. Adjust the clearance
between the kettle bottom and the stir blade to 1/32” (use a dime). Loosen the set screw in the collars
above and below the crossbar and adjust the agitator shaft as necessary. Then re-tighten the set screws in
the collars.
OIL PUMP DOES NOT DELIVER OIL TO KETTLE
If the pump is operating but oil is not dispensed, the oil may be solid in the oil lines. If the pump is not
operating, it may be necessary to replace it.

ELECTRONIC TEMPERATURE CONTROL (Domestic)
Operation
The temperature control is factory set to stop the power to the kettle when the thermocouple reaches
setpoint. This is also the ideal point to dump the popped corn out of the kettle. On the first start-up, this is
the ideal time to load the corn and oil. Therefore, if the Kettle Heat Switch is turned ON and the buzzer is
sounding, one of the following actions should be taken:



Load the corn and oil or
Dump the popped corn from the kettle or
Turn OFF the Kettle Heat Switch if you are finished popping corn.
Adjustment of Electronic Control
This unit has an electronic kettle control with 2 thermocouples (TC), one for control and one for limit.
There are no mechanical thermostats in this kettle.
There are (4) factory adjustments on the control:
1. Control Setpoint Temperature – This is factory set, DO NOT adjust.
2. Signal to Dump – If you want the signal to dump to be a little sooner or later, you can adjust the
Kettle Dump potentiometer (see image below). Turn clockwise (CW) to signal sooner,
counterclockwise (CCW) to signal later.
3. The patented Overshoot circuit is tuned for the kettle, DO NOT adjust this potentiometer.
4. The Audible Signal to Dump has three options; full volume, half volume, no sound (yellow light
only). Adjustments are made by jumper positions (see image below). The unit is shipped with
full volume.

SERVICE BULLETIN 0074
Date Issued – 8/23/04
REVISED 1/28/14
Model(s) Affected- All Poppers with NCC Electronic Temperature Control
This bulletin describes popcorn machines equipped with an Electronic Temperature Control manufactured by
NCC for Gold Medal Products. There are no mechanical thermostats used with this control. The mechanical
thermostats are replaced by two Thermocouple Sensors, one for the High Limit and one for Temperature
Control. This model is also equipped with a beeper and an indicator light that activate when the kettle heat
switch is on and the kettle is at or over the dump temperature set point.
Note: All components listed in this service bulletin are shown in Figure 1 on page 5).
Operation
The control is factory set to a temperature which stops power to the kettle when the thermocouple in the
kettle reaches the set temperature. See Table 1 for a list of temperature jumper settings. There is a Kettle
Dump Potentiometer that is used to set the Alarm point for loading and dumping the kettle. This
potentiometer will subtract up 10% of the set point jumper value to fine tune the alarm point. If the kettle
heat switch is turned on and the beeper is sounding one of the following actions should be taken:
1. Load the corn and oil or
2. Dump the popped corn from the kettle or
3. Turn off the kettle heat switch if you are finished popping corn.
The High Limit Control is fixed at 550ºF and cannot be adjusted.
Overshoot Potentiometer
For a stainless steel kettle the Patented First Time Overshoot Circuit Potentiometer is set to -20%, full
clockwise (CW). DO NOT change this setting. This setting prevents the kettle from getting too hot during the
first time heat up.
When power is applied to the kettle and the kettle temperature is below the first time overshoot
temperature set point the power to the kettle will be turned off at the overshoot temperature. The alarm
will NOT sound. The kettle will then cool to a point below the first time overshoot value and start to
reheat. When the kettle reaches the alarm temperature the alarm will sound and it is time to load the
kettle with corn and oil. The kettle will now operate from the alarm and
jumper set points. The first time overshoot set point is based on the power set point jumper setting. For
example if the power set point jumper is set at 460ºF the first time overshoot set point will be 368ºF
(460ºF-92ºF). The 92ºF is 20% of the 460ºF value.

Service Bulletin 0074 – NCC Electronic Temperature Control
Appendix A
Adjustment of Alarm Set Point
If you would like to have the beeper sound sooner or later than the factory setting, adjust the temperature setting
as follows:
1. To sound the beeper sooner, turn the Kettle Dump pot clockwise (CW) towards the -10% mark
on the control board. This will lower the alarm set point without changing the power set point
jumper value. For example if Set Point jumper is set at 400ºF and the Kettle Dump pot is at -5%
the kettle alarm temperature will be 380 ºF (400ºF - 20ºF), the power set point stays at 400ºF.
If the pot is set at 0% the alarm and power set points are the same, 400ºF. If the pot is set at 10% the alarm set point is 360ºF (400ºF -40ºF) and the power set point is 400ºF. A change of
1% CW on the potentiometer will subtract about 3 seconds from the alarm set point.
2. To sound the beeper later, turn the Kettle Dump pot counterclockwise (CCW). A change of 1%
CCW on the Dump potentiometer will add about 3 seconds to the alarm set point.
Adjustment of beeper Sound Level
If you would like to lower the beeper volume, remove jumper J3 shown in figure 1. To stop the beeper remove
jumper J4.
Salt / Sweet Option
The control board will have two separate set point jumpers. The lower value jumper is the sweet temperature.
These jumpers have wires attached to them going directly to a salt/sweet switch or a salt /sweet relay. The
salt/sweet switch selects which jumper is active.

Trouble Shooting for Service Personnel
1. If the kettle does not heat and there are no beeper sounds, look on the heat control to see if the green
PWR LED is on. The PWR LED indicates there is power to the control board. If the LED is not on, check
the Heat Switch and wiring. Check for 120 VAC (230 VAC) across terminals L1 & L2.
2. If the kettle does not heat and/or the beeper sounds continuously check to be sure there is a set point
jumper in one of the 6 locations. Remove the jumper and clean the pins off, sometimes the conformal
coatings gets on the pins and acts as an insulator.
3. If the kettle does not heat and/or the beeper sounds continuously, look on the heat control to see if
the red Probe LED is on. The Probe LED indicates there is a thermocouple problem.
a. If the Probe LED is on and the Limit & Heat LED’s are off and the beeper is on there is a
problem with the Heat Thermocouple, TC-B wiring. Look at the terminal blocks for a loose
connection. Check the kettle wiring for a loose or broken thermocouple wire.
b. If the Probe and Heat LED’s are on and the beeper is off there is a problem with the Limit
thermocouple, TC-A wiring. Look at the terminal blocks for a loose connection. Check the kettle
wiring for a loose or broken thermocouple wire.
c. If the Probe LED is not on the thermocouple connections are OK. If the Limit LED and Alarm
LED’s are on and the beeper is on check the Set Point Jumpers. Most likely the jumper has
come off. If the Jumper is in place temporarily move it to a different temperature setting to see
if the control then works.
4. If the kettle heats for a short time and then stops.
a. If the Probe, Heat and Alarm LED’s are on and the beeper is on the Heat Thermocouple, TC-B is
wired reverse. Check for reversed thermocouple leads, see note 2 below. If the thermocouple
leads are reversed the kettle will heat up to about 240F and stop with the Probe LED on. The
leads could be reversed at either the heat control itself or the terminal block.
b. If the Probe and Heat LED’s are on and the beeper is off the Limit Thermocouple, TC-A is wired
reverse, troubleshoot as in item 3-a above. Note this is similar to 2-b above, the difference is
the kettle started to heat and then quit.
5. The kettle is popping normally but the beeper does not sound, check for a missing jumper
at J4.
6. Salt or Sweet temperature is not working correctly. Check to make sure both temperature set point
jumpers are in place and wired correctly. Be sure the common wire for the switch or relay is
connected to a bottom pin of one of the set point jumpers.

Appendix A
Service Bulletin 0074 – NCC Electronic Temperature Control
Notes:
1. Do not adjust the (4) painted potentiometers numbers R89, R36, R73 and R74 on the electronic heat
control. If adjusted, the performance will be erratic and could result in an over temperature condition.
2. Thermocouple wire consists of (2) different wires made of different materials that are color-coded
polarity. It is important that red (-) is connected to red (-), and yellow (+) is connected to yellow (+),
at the lead-in plug, the receptacle, and at the electronic heat control. Note that the red lead is magnetic
if you have trouble determining which is which.
3. This control includes a patented first time overshoot circuit. On power up if the kettle is below the
first time overshoot temperature it is normal for the heat light to go off and the kettle to stop heating
before the set dump temperature. The kettle will continue to heat as soon as the kettle temperature
drops below the first time overshoot temperature.
4. The Limit, Heat and Alarm LED’s indicate the state of the output relays of the temperature control
board. If an output LED is lit there should be 120 VAC on the respective ¼” faston with respect to
common. The main voltage to the temperature control must be wired such that the hot 120 VAC (230
VAC) is connected to L1. The L2 connection is for the neutral or common voltage wire.
