Check that all gears are in good working order. The paddlewill not turn properly and the motor will not run if the gears are worn ordamaged gears. Inspect the paddle for damage and replace if necessary. You alsomay need to replace worn or damaged gears in the motor. Lubricate the motor,drive shaft and motor bearings. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

The paddle in my new 1.5 L ice cream maker is not turning - is this normal?

Hello Maryo803,

It is not normal for the paddle not to move in these units. First we have to determine weather the paddle is striped or the gear is stripped. At the bottom of the paddle there is a hole that attaches to the turning gear on the machine. Look and see if it still matches the sprocket in the bottom of the ice cream maker. If it does not still match I would suggest buying a new paddle. You can purchase a new paddle from Cuisinart for $8.00 and here is a link to the page.

However, if it is not the paddle please post back to this thread and I will see if it is worth changing out the bottom gear.

Thank you for choosing

I have an old Simac Il Gelataio Super. I believe the clutch is broken. It will only churn until the product is very soft. Then the blade stps because the drag on the sides is too great. Is this...

It sounds like the main gear is cracked were the paddle shaft goes though it.the d shaped shaft is spinning when the ice cream gets firm. i repaired mine by making a sleeve out of copper pipe and slid it over the cracked part. works great.

The motor works but won't turn the blade. As soon as I turn it on, it sounds like it gets stuck and stops. What is going on?

The inner gears are probably stripping. This seems to be common on the rival 8550-X-5. I will never own another rival because mine was that way almost from the start.

Moter slipes

Could it be that your lid is worn, or the little indentation on the can is not holding the lid in place? There could also be a stripped gear in the motor. If you need replacement parts, they're sometimes available here:

Homemade Ice Cream Inconsistency

It is possible, but the rivals don't have much power. In an hour it should be frozen anyway. I have an 8550X5 and it never got very firm. Now the gears are stripped. Typical for Rival.
