    Looking for part number of the 2 front corner legs.  These 2 legs are main supports and have door hinges attached.  Won a 2388 in auction.  Screws at base are corroded into aluminum channels.  Any info would be appreciated.

    The 2388 is a 8 oz counter top corn popper. I have never seen the cornr post as parts, but they do often sell a hinge kit. Found here.

    The instruction manual is here;

    Now if you have a corroded frame member from improper use of cleaners like a strong alkaline, That would require a new machine. The post are a weldment of the whole frame and not a serviceable item.  Aluminum in direct contact with higher metals and moisture will form electrolysis that will eat out the aluminum. Add a strong acid or base to make more conductivity and it turns to aluminum oxide. a kind of white powder.

     

    Sorry I can’t give you better information. But you may be able to plate it with another piece to get enough meat for the screws. alternately you could drill through to the other side and use longer screws to hold the hinge’s on.  Up to you if you tap them and file off flush or us nuts.

     

    What condition is the cooling fan bearings and motor/gears?  Common for the needle bearing on top to go bad.  Also the thermostats get worn and the kettle plug/lead. A new machine is only about $550 if you look around.

    There will be a Gold Metal dealer in your area. Usually a restaurant equipment or concession supply house that will carry the 8 oz packs to make a good popcorn product.
