Loosen two set screws on top sides of machine.
Set tub over center of machine.

5. When the spinner needs to be refilled, turn off the motor and heat switches.
6. Please remember to turn both switches on and off at the same time or else damage to machine may occur.
7. Refill the spinner and repeat the above steps to make additional cotton candy.

2. Unplug from power source.
3. Remove any remaining cotton candy from the tub.
NOTE:Two people work best – one to make the cotton candy and one to dispense them and collect payment.
 

Tips on How to Make Cotton Candy
At your next big get-together, block party, birthday bash, or fundraising function make sure that you rent a cotton
candy machine! Here’s an easy way to making this sweet-tooth treat that will make you the hit of the party.
Using a damp cloth, moisten the inside of the floss pan. This will cause floss to adhere to the pan.
After following the operating instructions, you are ready to begin making the floss. Pay attention to the direction of
the floss as it is spun off the floss head. It should be thrown against and adhere to the side of the floss pan.
Attached to the top plate of the spinner head are two floaters - these give additional air current for floss control. Twisting
the leading edge of the floaters down will give more lift and floss will go upward - twisting down, the floss will go
down. Practice will give good control.
To pick up floss, once you practice, you can become an expert at rolling the web of candy onto the cone. Pick up the
cone, holding it an inch or two at the pointed end between your two fingers and thumb. With a light flicking action,
break into the web of floss that is building up in the pan. Usually some floss will stick to the cone, if not, brush the cone
over a damp sponge first. Lift up the cone with the ring of floss attached, and, by rotating the cone, wind the floss onto
it. Do not roll floss on the cone inside the floss pan, roll it on outside of the pan only.
When you have practiced a bit, you might rather prefer to lift the ring of floss out of the pan with a flick of the wrist,
turn the ring into a figure 8 and whip it around onto the cone. This leaves air pockets making it appear that you are
building a bigger web.
When stopping operation for the day or any prolonged period, it is a good idea to run all of the sugar out of the floss
head. When empty, turn heat to the highest setting for approximately one minute to remove carbon from the ribbons.
Never allow water to enter the floss head. A damp cloth will be sufficient to wipe off floss head after use, but be sure to
unplug main electrical supply cord first. Make sure all parts are dry before resuming operation.
