Operational Guidelines:

Sno-Kone Machine

Electrical Requirements:

  • Normal amp draw for unit at 120 volts is 6.8 Amps.

Operating Instructions:

  • Customer supplies ice. Either cube or block ice can be used. If using block ice, break block into pieces 3 to 4 inches in size.
  • Switch the motor on and wait for the motor to come to full speed.
  • Fill the gooseneck within an inch of the top with ice cubes or block ice. The larger the pieces the better the snow.
  • Push the pusher handle down against the ice in the gooseneck. Apply firm even pressure to make the best snow. You may find that you need to relieve the pressure 2 to 3 times during a cycle. Too much pressure may stall the motor and will result in snow that is course. Providing too little pressure will result in snow that is mushy.
  • Chute contains rotating blades that could cause serious injury. Never allow any foreign or metallic objects around the shaver area. Do not place hands or fingers in gooseneck chute (shaver area).

Shut Down Procedures:

  • Turn the power to the “off” position.
  • Unplug the machine.
  • Clean the scoops and pumps with hot soapy water.
  • Wipe the entire unit cabinet inside and out and remove any excess syrup from the unit.
  • Wipe down exterior of syrup bottles.
  • If provided, rinse drain pan and drain hose with hot-soapy water.
  • Please do not use any chlorine-based cleaning products on the unit or permanent damage to stainless steel may result. Damage to the machine will result in additional expense.

Popcorn Machine

Electrical Requirements:

  • Maximum amp draw for the popcorn machine at 120 volts is 10.5 amps.
  • This figure is an approximation and may vary slightly. An overloaded electric circuit will not allow the machine to heat properly.
  • The power supply cord is equipped with a machine ground (the tubular prong). For safety, always plug the machine into a grounded receptacle.
  • You must have the popcorn machine grounded! No exceptions!!!

Operating Instructions:

  • This machine is capable of producing 160 1oz servings per hour.
  • Place the machine on a sturdy table or countertop with the controls facing the operator.
  • There are 3 switches on the popper
    • Light and Warmer- Light and popped popcorn warmer
    • Motor- Turns on the motor to stir the popcorn in the kettle
    • Heat- Kettle heat
  • To begin, turn on the kettle heat and wait 5 minutes.
  • Switch on the Stir mechanism.
  • Add the pre-measured popcorn and oil.
  • Slide the lid down over the kettle by gently pulling it down from the magnet that holds it to the top of the machine.
  • When the popping corn pushes the lid up, slide it back to the top of the machine and allow the popcorn to fall into the hopper below.
  • When it sounds like the popping is slowing down, pull the kettle towards you, then down to dump the popcorn out. Do not wait for all popping to stop; popcorn will burn. Some unpopped kernels are normal.
  • Add the next batch of pre-measured popcorn and oil and repeat. Optimum performance is typically reached after 3-4 batches.
  • Use the aluminum scoop to dispense the popcorn into sacks, sliding the narrow end into the bag and using the wide end to scoop up the popcorn.

Shut Down Procedure

  • When completing the final batch of popcorn, turn the kettle heat off.
  • After dumping out the final batch of popcorn, turn off the “stir” mechanism.
  • Remove all excess popcorn from the bottom of the machine.
  • Pull out the old maid tray in the bottom of the machine and dump unpopped kernels into the trash.
  • Allow the kettle to cool for about 15 min then carefully wipe any grease from the outside of the kettle with a paper towel.
  • Wipe the body of the machine with a glass spray to clean the windows, inside and out.
  • Turn off light/warmer and unplug the machine. Leave the aluminum scoop inside the machine.
  • Wind up extension cord and place inside popcorn machine.

  • The power supply cord is equipped with a machine ground (the tubular prong). For safety, always plug the machine into a grounded receptacle.

Operating Instructions

  • Place the machine on a sturdy table or countertop with the controls facing the operator.
  • Place the card stock on the bracket inside the machine.
  • Turn the switch in the back to the “On” position.
  • Using one bottle of paint at a time, drip the paint through the slot in the clear lid. Note: Use only a small amount of paint at a time.
  • Movement of the paint up and down the length of the slot creates the best results. 2-3 Colors usually provides the best result.

  • Replace paint bottles in their holders.

Cotton Candy Machine

Electrical Requirements:

  • Normal amp draw for the unit at 120 volts is 9 amps.
  • This figure is an approximation and may vary slightly. An overloaded electric circuit will not allow the unit to make cotton candy.
  • The power supply cord is equipped with a machine ground (the tubular prong). For safety, always plug the machine into a grounded receptacle.

Operating Instructions:

  • Floss head rotates at 3450 RPM. Operator must keep hands and face clear of the floss head and keep spectators at a reasonable distance.
  • Place the machine on a sturdy table, dedicated stand or countertop with the controls facing the operator.
  • Unscrew the two transport screws on the unit on either side of the floss head. Do NOT run the machine with these screws in the “up” position. These screws are located on each side of the floss head.
  • Place the Floss Bowl on the motor assembly. It rests on the rubber stoppers on the motor assembly- it does not connect or hook to the machine in any way.
  • If not done for you, place the mesh stabilizer around the edges of the bowl, overlapping the ends slightly to fit. Slide the metal clips over the bowl and the mesh at several of the “corners” of the bowl.
  • Place the clear bubble on top of the floss bowl, pointing the opening on the same side as the machine controls. This is where the operator will stand.
  • Fill the floss head with one cup or less of floss sugar. When adding sugar to the floss head, always fill it 80-90% full to obtain a balanced condition in the head and eliminate vibration. DO NOT add sugar with motor running!
  • Turn on both the heat and the motor switches, and turn the heat on medium-high until you start to see the floss forming. Then turn the heat back to a medium setting. After warm up, equipment should make good floss at a reduced setting. Never let the machine operate with the heat so high it produces smoke or causes the sugar to burn.

Making Floss:

  • Select a paper cone.
  • Hold an inch or two of the pointed end of the cone between two fingers and a thumb. With a light flicking action, roll cone in the web of floss building up in the pan.
  • Lift the cone up with the ring of floss attached and rotate the cone to wrap the floss.
  • DO NOT roll floss while the cone is inside the pan. This will pack the floss too tightly.
  • Make sure room humidity is not too high, or product will be too firm.

Shut Down Procedure

  • When completing operation for the day, run all the sugar out of the floss head.
  • When empty, turn the heat to highest position for approximately one minute to "clean" the band by baking off remaining sugar. NEVER put water in or on the floss head.
  • Clean the floss bowl and clear bubble with plain water. The sugar should easily dissolve after a minute or two. Wipe dry.
  • Wipe the body of the machine with a wet cloth to dissolve any sugar that may have collected on it. Wipe dry.
