New out of box
I have elliminated issues with the popcorn itself.
Tried different amounts of oil
Due to Corporate restructuring cant seem to get a new pot
Tested input voltage...its at normal.
I heat Pot up for recommended 5 min pour in product using their measuring spoons. Pot will pop maybe a 1/4 of product spilling much unpopped kernals of side and then just stir the rest endlessly. Pot remains hot but evidently not hot enough to pop.

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!

1. Pour up to 1/3 cup of popcorn kernels in the base of the Popcorn
2. The use of oil is optional, but not necessary. If desired,
drizzle a small amount of vegetable oil over the unpopped kernels, then
stir to coat the kernels.
3. Place cover on the base bowl. Cook on High in the microwave for
approximately 3-5 minutes (microwave ovens vary tremendously!), or
until popping slows down. Allow Popcorn Popper to cool before repeated
use. Do not try to re-pop unpopped kernels.
4. Hand washing is recommended, but occasional washing in the top
rack of a dishwasher is acceptable for the bowl, but not the lid.
5. If popcorn burns easily or does not pop well, try placing a
shallow bowl, dish or plate upside down on the microwave turntable to
raise the popcorn popper up a bit.

There are two models of the Stir Crazy® Corn Popper, one for making up to 6-quarts and the second for making up to 8-quarts of popcorn. Listed below are the proper amounts of oil, corn and butter (or margarine) to use for making various amounts of popcorn. Do not attempt to make 8 quarts of popcorn in the 6-quart model.

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.
