First post here. I'm in the process of a Theatre/Games room setup.
Anyway, my first purchase was a Gold Medal Funpop 2404 4oz Popcorn Machine. Very cool machine but I am having a slight issue. I only had the machine a week and made about 10 batches of popcorn. It sounds as if the motor is struggling to stir sometimes as the batch gets about 1/2 way popped and on 2 occasions so far the kettle jammed up with popcorn and the stirrer got stuck and wouldn't rotate. I had to shut the motor off and poke out the popcorn out of the kettle manually with a spoon. I'm using Megapop portion packs of 6 oz. I made 1000% sure already that the 6oz packs are okay to use in the 4 oz machine through various online searches and asked the company directly before buying the machine.
Is there anything else I could be doing wrong?
