That's right, if it is within it's warranty period, return it. On the other hand if it is out of warranty and you are somewhat mechanically inclined, you can open it up. The screws are in the bottom of the unit under the feet. Take them out, open it up and you will see there are connector(s) on the circuit board you see 1st. Unplug the connectors, clean things up as you go also. Do take note of the orientation of the connectors. Once that board is out, you will see another smaller one under it, and the motor w/mechanical parts attached. The small circuit board is the optic that senses the position, likely has tobacco dust obstructing it. Either remove it and dust it off, or use some canned air and blow things out. While in that far, check the mechanical parts for wear, they should not be too loose. There is play in them, but not sloppy. Hope that helps :)

you are loading way too tightly, do not force when pushing the handle down, if you have too you are over packing. I have loaded 200 cartons of cigs on these machines and never broken a thing

I am going to go under the assumption you are using 100mm tubes. I just switched to kings to make life easier but here is how I filled my 100mm to the filter with good compaction and a trick to get it to the filter. I tightly pack the tobacco against the left side, sticking my finger in the chamber and pushing pretty hard to compact to the left side, I then just do a light poke for the rest of the compartment. Here is the trick part, take a finger and put light pressure pushing on the filter towards the machine, but not so hard it bends the tube and also no so hard that when the injector probe comes out it pushes your finger away from the machine. Using this method I would get around 9 good packs with one redo out of 10 injections. The key is to have enough pressure to hold the filter at the point where the plastic tab usually pushes out and then let the probe push your finger away from the machine. Only very light pressure is needed to make the difference. If the cigarettes are not packing tight you are not compacting enough tobacco in the chamber. There is a fine line though, you need to find the balance as stuffing too much in will cause it to bind up, you just need to find the balance. Once you figure it out it will go very quick, I stuff mine while on the phone and can do around a pack every 2 to 3 minutes or so and get a cigarette that can not be distinguished from a store bought one.

Another tip: I use old cigarette packs as containers for my DIY smokes, you can do the same here with a plastic case. If I do get some that are not fully pushed against the filter using the above method, or if the pack just seems a little loos I put them aside and at the end I load them all in cigarette packs just like they come from the store, filter up (otherwise I have a habit of smoking filters from years of them being positioned this way!) and once the pack is full (add good ones if there is space for them to move around, it will not hurt them) turn the pack upside down so the lid is on the bottom. Now tap them firmly about 10 to 20 times against a hard flat surface. This will move the tobacco towards the filter if there is a space or pack loose cigarettes.

Warning: From my experience :) Do not over stuff the machine or using the compacting method do not over pack the tobacco, find a good medium. If you over pack the smokes will be solid and very hard to drag from. Do not smoke cigarettes that are hard to rag from, the extra force needed by your lungs followed by introducing smoke into your lungs will result in pain and maybe worse, but I only made that mistake once.

Good luck!

Trick i have learned is to put a small amount of tobbaco in the chamber now move it side to side with your finger tips. Now add more tobbaco to the chamber as you normaly would.It will fill the tube better If that does not work out for you try virginia blend tobbaco it will work better in any machine...

One of 2 things. First is to push the reset button to get it to retract. Then make sure you are not over packing it with tobacco. If all that seems fine, maybe the gear mechanism inside has failed. I know from mine they were known to have plastic gears in the beginning, then were changed to hold up better.

Google "photo's of powermatic II cigarette machine " This should bring up a myriad of all images google has of this machine . There is a You tube video Although it is grainy and doesn't show everything . There is no PDF that I could find . The machine shares a name with a famous wood working machine brand . And that is the only PDF user manuals out there .

that is typically a moisture level issue or too much tobacco loaded. clean it out, use the tools provided or a thin rod to clear the tube, inspect and retry.

It is called the "cigarette holder" and has a replaceable "rubber bumper" on the end. Powermatic will send you a new one if you call when it does not hold the paper on as well as new.
