Popcorn jamming in kettle

Hi, I have a fairly new popcorn maker and all the packages of popcorn are all pre-measured for the maker and for some reason once after the popcorn starts to pop the popcorn gets jammed in the kettle?

    I've actually had great success with my pop corn kettle. But recently it's been doing the same thing. Once the kettle is full it is not popping out its just getting jammed with popcorn. if you get an answer please forward it to my email at aredlich@aol.com Thanks.

    I have the same problem where the popcorn builds up in the kettle, and it jams so badly that the motor stops alltogether. I have found that cooking with teh lid open helps, however than far more kernels com flying out, and never get popped

The only real solution is to put less kernels in kettle - it pops so fast that it jams up and burns. Adding a little more oil usually helps as well.

Pre heat kettle 5 mins. Put in oil, popcorn, and popcorn salt. Dump kettle when done popping.

Use 3 parts popcorn to 1 part oil. Measurements are different for each model popper.

Ccp-509 popcorn kettle stop spinning when popcorn begins to pop. It won't pop out of the kettle.


Normally that is caused by too many kernels used. It pops too fast and jams up in the kettle. It could be a problem with the kettle though. Call 920-347-9122 for help with it.

I have a Retro Series Popcorn maker, new. Can you tell me the kettle size in OZ, 2,3,4 etc. I have pre-measured packets given to me that are for a 4 oz Kettle. Thanks Dan Martin


Hello Dan, According to the manufacturer specifications, your popcorn popper has a 2 ounce capacity kettle. so you should be able to take those premeasured packets and by using exactly (close enough) half, get the desired results of pop corn out of your popper.

If you also want to use your own popcorn, here's some directions that will let you do that also.

First, turn on the popper and add 1 teaspoon of oil or butter, you can also use Land O' Lakes Margarine as it doesn't burn the popcorn like most butter will do so this is a personal preference (so you can use whatever your preference is but it must be melted). I've not tried it un-melted but I don't think it would work too well.

Then add ¼ cup of unpopped popcorn, brand doesn't matter. Wait and within 5 to 10 minutes it will hve popped.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

When Popper Has Popped Corn Just Before.
1. Pour the properly measure amount of Oil into the kettle.
2. Wait about 45 seconds - or until the Oil in the kettle starts to smoke slightly.
3. Pour the contents of the properly measured corn cup (kernels plus popcorn salt or Flavacol) into the kettle.
4. Wait about 2 1/2 minutes. If you are using a pan on the stove without an agitator, you must constantly shake gently. When the crackling noise of the popping corn is no longer heard, dump the kettle and empty it completely.
5. Repeat if needed for more popcorn.
6. When you are finished popping, turn off the kettle agitator switch (if you have one) and turn off the Pilot light/ heat switch.
7. After the machine has cooled enough so as not to be dangerously hot, wipe the outside of the kettle with a soft damp cloth. This helps prevent a heavy build-up of the Oil.

TIPS
- Bagged floss keeps a day or two, depending on the humidity
- Use bags to make and display cotton candy in advance - use cones for immediate sales
- Unless you're experienced, it's best to turn off the motor to refill the spinner head
- If machine will be used more than 20ft. from power source, be sure to have an adequate extension cord
