Question about Presto 04821 Orville Redenbacher's Popcorn Maker
Posted by Anonymous on
Welcome to FixYa, If my solution meets your approval, I'd appreciate a good ranking. Regarding the popper, I read the owner's manual for this model and it is a very simple machine. I had thought that there might me some type of interlock or switch that might be at fault for the malfunction but they don't. It seems that the unit is just filled with popcorn, plugged in and within two or three minutes you should have popcorn.

Finally, just in case you don't have the user's manual any longer, it can be viewed and saved at the following link:
Thanks again for allowing me to assist!

SOURCE: I have a presto hot
Does your popper have a butter melting cup at the top? (The one we had years ago did.) Remove that cup from the popper and fill it with the unpopped kernels. (Fill loosely to level with the rim of the cup or less. Do not pack the kernels into the cup or overfill.) Then pour the kernels into the poppiing chamber. There should also be a fill line inside the popping chamber that indicates the maximum amount of popcorn to put in the chamber. Then put the measuring cup/butter melter back on the top of the popper.
The manual for the current Presto Hot Air Popper is available as a PDF from the Presto site. The list of all their popcorn makers is here: http://www.gopresto.com/products/products_search.php?search_value=37&operation=Search&search_type=category . To find the manual click on the hot air popper and scroll down, the user's guide is listed under the parts/accessories available for sale. The current one looks identical to the one that my family had ~20 years ago.
I hope this helps.

WAIT! Do not add any oil or butter. I don't know what kind of machine you have, but only POPCORN goes inside the Popcornnow. I have an old one that melts butter on the top cover, although I don't recommend that. I recommend butter in the microwave. Repeat: DO NOT ADD OIL where the popcorn goes or you will set a fire.
