I owned one of these and it worked for 2 whole months.

It's a popcorn machine, how hard could it be? Make sure the stirring bar it tight on it's shaft, make sure the plastic bolt is tight. Add about 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil, and 1/4 to 1/3 cup popcorn kernels. Turn the machine on. Turn the machine off when the popcorn stops popping, or you might scorch the popcorn.

Try new popcorn, popcorn dries out and does not pop well after being opened.

If the popcorn does not pop, and just turns black then it is too cold. If it pops very rapidly and then burns it is too hot. It is almost never too hot if you shut it off fast enough.

The unit only pops half of the popcorn


The symptoms of only pops half the popcorn is a hard one to trouble shoot.
1.Check your popcorn, old popcorn dries out. As it loses moisture its ability to pop is reduced. Popcorn only lasts about 90 days after opening the air tight packaging.
2. If it is a oil popper, make sure the stirring rod is turning during the popping cycle. They sometimes can stir, but once the popping starts the pressure of the corn can stall a motor. This results in the first half popping, and the second half burning on the bottom.
3. Popper is too cold. This has symptoms of a long, long popping cycle, and half the corn popping the other half just turning brown. Some machines had adjustable thermostats inclosed, most home units do not. Letting it pre-heat longer does not help, the temperature is controlled by a thermo-stat.

How to use


Put popcorn in bottom up to where the ring in bottom levels off for a maker full or less if you don't want a maker full. Cover with popcorn oil, I use the butter flavor oil. Put some butter inside of lid compartment and put lid back on butter compartment. Now just put lid onto popper and plug in. The light on side will come on and popper will start to heat. You will then hear it start to pop. Popping is finished when light on side goes out. Carefully lift the whole popper and shake right side up and then turn upside down and shake. Remove bottom, add some popcorn salt if you like and enjoy it right out of the lid. Delisious!!

Hi--no air in Busy Ball popper


I had the same problem!! Music worked, but fan just stopped running... Since my kids love their busy ball popper I was determined to find a fix!!
The solution for me was to replace all 4 batteries with identical brand batteries.
When the original batteries had puttered out I replaced them with 2 brand new Duracell and 2 brand new Energizer batteries (because that's what I had on hand). The popper worked just fine and I'd say a few weeks later the fan just stopped working. Music played, but no fan. I thought the fan motor must have gone bad, so I searched for another popper at a resale shop (hoping to salvage the fan motor). Well I found one, but didn't end up using it because I discovered that putting ALL the same brand of batteries in my popper did the trick. The batteries weren't necessarily brand new, but they were all the same brand and I would guess the same "age". Anyway, I'm just glad it all works now (music and fan) and my kids are back to their ball popping fun. If you haven't already give this a try. Otherwise I have a spare ball popper if you need any parts! Good luck!

Half the Kernals spit out uncooked


It coud be 2 things. Either a low grade of popping corn, or old popping corn. Hot air poppers blow the same temperature, until you shut them off. Although the better grades of popping corn cost a good amount more, you don't throw half of it away. Once the popping corn container has been opened, you should use it up within about 3 months. The internal moisture content is what determines whether corn will pop or not. Too much or too little moisture will not allow the corn to pop.

Cuisinart popcorn popper directions


If you are using the Cuisinart pop corn poppper, don't use olive oil. Use vegetable oil. Two teaspoons is enough with 1/3 cup of premium kernels. That is it. Turn on the machine and wait til it stops popping. I LOVE my new pop corn popper. I will not do the hot air one again. I always had kernels flying all over my kitchen and popped popcorn everywhere, The Cuisinart popper is the best....
