Question about Maytag MMV4205 Microwave Oven
I've always been microwaving my own popcorn using this method and never got any problems. Maybe you have microwaved the kernels for too long? The usual range is between 2 to 3 minutes depending on the microwave, but if you notice the popping sound begins to slow, you need to stop. Too much heat can cause the kernels and the paper to burn.
Also, you might want to check that the bag is clear. If you're reusing a brown bag, be sure that there aren't any staples on it.
The beauty with using the paper-bag method is that buying raw kernels is much cheaper than store-bought microwavable popcorns. The bags used in commercial popcorns may also release carcinogenic compounds when heated.
If nothing works, consider replacing the paper bags that you use. I never had any problems with the ones that I bought from Big Brown Carrier Bag. They also sell other types of printed paper bags and recyclable carriers that really last for a long time.

All microwaves have flame sensors that will cut the power in case of fire, this sensor will most likely have to be replaced. this will require you to drop the m/w and remove the case.
