    I have the same problem! And I'm using the correct packet size for the kettle size. It just all gets stuck in the kettle and doesn't come out, and about half of the kernels are unpopped.

    Somebody help!

    I have the same problem. I think the stirrer rod pushes up and popcorn gets stuck under it.

  • the-allens Oct 11, 2008

    We are having the same problem. We notice after it happens that a kernel is stuck under the stirring rods so we are thinking the same thing that the rod is too loose and raises.

    To the suggestion that we are putting too much in at one time...we tried putting half the amount in popping and doing the other half, but same result on the second half.

    I am having the same problem and my popcorn maker never did this before (I've only used it about 15 times) and all my popcorn and oil packages are all bought pre-measured by the company I bought the popcorn maker from.

    I have the very same problem, my maker just started to do this recently (it is a new popper) all of my popcorn/oil packages are all pre-measured from the factory where I bought the maker. PLEASE HELP

    Too much popcorn is not the problem. The stirring rod is sliding up allowing kernels and popped corn to get stuck. My husband is going to try and move the bolt thing, on the underside above the spring, down to keep the rods from moving upward.

    popcorn is rubbery instead of chrunchy. Should I be using the black lid while I am popping?

    Can't do nuts or coffee and sometimes in the middle of popping corn

Don't have a manual need to know how to operate Do I add oil or butter in bottom with the corn if so how much?


the ratio for popping corn with oil is three parts corn to one part oil . So a 6 oz kettle you would use 6 oz of corn seed to 2 oz of oil. Don't use butter to pop, it will burn.

Why is it taking a long time to start popping, not popping completely, and leaving excess oil?


Sounds like the kettle isn't getting hot enough. The thermostat is usually at fault in this situation which can be determined by checking the amp draw on the kettle. the common complaint is the kette is too hot and burning but what really is going on is it's not hot enough so the seed won't pop. Because of the heat that is there it will loose it's moisture, dry out and burn instead. You will end up with lots of old maids . Really stale corn seed will act the same way because all the moisture in it is gone and thats what is needed to pop it.

Popcorn doesn't pop to full size. The problem is, the popcorn pops however the sise of the opoed corn is only one quater the sise it should be.


Not enough heat in the kettle to do the job. The corn will dry out and pop poorly when there is not enough heat. Either a thermostat adjustment or replacement or a bad element.

Our elementary school has this Gold Medal 2213 Antique *** 90 Popcorn Machine. We don't seem to have any manual for it now. We would like to use regular corn oil and kernels, versus the all-in-one bag...


Generally, you want 3 oz. of corn to one 1oz of oil. The amount of corn you can put in the kettle depends on the size of the kettle. So take the kettle size, (I think that machine is an 8 oz popper) and divide 8 by three to get 2.66 oz. (about a third of a cup) of oil needed. So you would use 1 cup of corn, and a third cup of oil.

I have a Star model 89, manufactured in about 1986. Its a 14 oz kettle, and everything works, however the kettle will not pop the corn. The kettle is hot to the touch from the outside, but will not pop...


Make sure your agitator arms are properly functioning. If the corn is not being properly stirred, it will not pop. Also, make sure you are using the correct type of popcorn oil.

ALL THE KERNELS ARE NOT POPPING


There are several possible culprits for your Kernel Caper.
1) You may need to add a little more oil to the kettle. Let it come to full heat--just as soon as the oil starts to smoke.
2) The corn you are using must be reasonable fresh and have sufficient moisture to pop the kernel. You can try putting 1 tsp/1 lb of corn in a ziploc bag or screw top bottle. Leave for 24 to 48 hrs to let the corn absorb the moisture.
3) Finally, due to the small size of the popping kettle some kernels will be thrown from the kettle from other kernels popping open.
This is a great little popper. You might have some luck decreasing the size of your batch--reduce your oil and corn by 1/4 each.
Good Luck

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.

Popcorn jamming in kettle


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.
