    I have the same problem! I have teied numerous branda of popcorn and oils. I tried the same oil and popcorn on the stovetop in a manual popcorn popper and I got beautiful results. Something is wrong with my unit. I don't think it's heating up enough but then when I inspect the unpopped kernels there seems to be a burn mark on them. Help!!!

I had the same problem when I firs bought mine. I followed the instructions as to the proportion of corn to oil. Forget the book! I found that with this machine I had to use three times the oil that was caled for in the instructions to get all of the corn to pop. Better yet, we started purchasing the premade kits with the oil, popcorn and salt. Since changing to both of these systems we have enjoyed GREAT ppcorn!

Have you checked how old your oil is? That will actually make a difference in the taste.

Not all kernals are popping


Heat the oil longer before you put the kernals in.

Brown oily leak


The oil is leaking around the stirring-arm-motor shaft -- it needs a new seal. It's not the oil you're using.

2004 dodge ram 2500 waisted oil.


Check Out your pcv

" Inspect the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) valve. Shake the PCV valve to verify that the pintle inside of the PCV valve is free. Replace the PVC if the pintle is not free"


and then check this Tech Service bulletin TSB 09-05-00 Spark knock and oil consumption due to intake manifold pan gasket oil leak. .
"If the intake manifold plenum pan gasket is leaking, an additional vacuum source will be created inside of the engine at the location of the pan gasket leakage.- Engine combustion blow-by gases, oil vapor, and air from the crankcase filter/breather may be drawn past the leaking pan gasket and into the intake manifold. In most cases when this condition occurs, an engine at idle will create the highest vacuum and lowest amount of engine blow-by."

All instructions for the test and fix are in the bulletin. Don't do anything to void your warranty this is for your information and knowledge.

Your oil manufacturer should not be an issue if it exceeds specs for your vehicle (most do)
The oil weight may be an issue if you are not using the recommended weight. (still unlikely)


Plugs are different definitely stay only with the manufacturer recommended for best performance

While 1 quart per 3000 may not seem outrages to some any oil leakage from a new vehicle should be unacceptable.

I cannot suggest any other recourse than these other than to make sure you have all your trips to the dealer documenting the complaint and the resolution or lack of solution. If you have tried all your resources to fix the vehicle it may be time for different direction and a different group of professionals.. So maybe yes to your question " there sumting wrong wit my truck???"

Popped first few times of use


Had the same problem so I tried different oils and different popcorn brands. Also found that the o-ring inside had melted and broken up into pieces that rattled when I shook the unit. A friend passed along some Theater Spice (buttery salt) from SGW.com and their instructions said to use 6 Tablespoons of Canola Oil with 1/2 teaspoon of Theatre Spice and 1/2 cup of popcorn kernels. More oil than I wanted but damn that stuff tastes good. I now enjoy using this popper again. In short - More oil.

Cuisinart makes fresh, crunchy, homemade popcorn fast, easy¿.and healthy! The Cuisinart Popcorn Maker pops up to 10 cups of popcorn in under 5 minutes, and lets popcorn lovers decide just how much, and what kind, of popcorn, oil and flavoring to use. Popcorn pops right into a clear plastic bowl that flips to serve, and both bowl and poping plate go into the dishwasher.

Kettle Keeps jolting out of place


Popcorn popper is approximately three weeks old and now the popcorn clogs up in the hopper (cooker pot), the gear quits turning, and we have to pry the popcorn out. It worked perfectly when we first got it and now it is nothing but a pain to use. We tried several popcorns, cooking oils and amounts of oils, but the problem continues. I noticed the small spring located on the lower shaft doesn't cover the entire shaft. Is it supposed to be longer? Your prompt reply for a solution would be greatly appreciated or we will have to return the unit to our local retailer where we purchased it.
