Question about Simac 4050 Il Gelatao Magnum 1 Quart Ice Cream Maker

1 Answer

One day it quit working for no apparent reason -- need service, but where?

My machine has always worked fine, I went to use it last week and it wouldn't freeze the mix. Nothing has changed, the machine has not even been moved, and we can think of no reason why it just stopped. So, we need a repair, but I am having trouble finding anyone who has any clue about how to fix it. Any ideas for repair would be much appreciated.

If the only problem is that the unit does not chill, then perhaps there is a leak in the freon. Maybe a refrigeration expert could help.

We get ice cream, but it is not firm . . more of a soup how to adjust


There are two types of machine. Cheap ones where you have to pre-freeze an insert and chill to mix to almost frozen. Then the more expensive ones that have a compressor in them and are actually an electric freezer with a paddle.

If you have the cheap sort, then nothing you can do apart from following the instructions and chilling and freezing everything well.

With the freezer type, you need a refrigeration engineer as it probably needs more refrigerant gas.

I have a Taylor C713 Ice Cream Machine. IT has been working great until a few days ago. We had it in standby overnight and when we came back the next morning, the ice cream in one side was rotten from...


Those are symptoms of the mix refrigeration system being undercharged. You will need a refrigeration technician to add refrigerant.

In Taylor soft serve machines when the left side hopper (standing in front of the machine) is icing up and the right side hopper is not cold enough, the problem is low refrigerant in that system. It takes R134A.

Beater overload


if your mix level is low ice cream will freeze in cylinder which in turn will over amp the beater and cause it to trip. Check mix pump and make sure all orings are good.If mix isnt leaking out make sure it is pumping in.

I loaded the machine with mix and turned it on but machine keeps on turning but mix is still very watery


My small Business had this same problem. The first thing you need to look at is the product you are using. It turns out that if you are making your own soft serve. which Includes water and powder, it will save you a lot of time and stress to switch to cartons of soft serve that you just pour right in. It turns out that there is no consistency in powder icecream. the water will eventually separate from the mix, resulting in watery soft serve once dispensed from the machine. Next, if this isn't the prduct you are using then it can be other problems such as your compressor not working, or turning on when it's suppose to, maybe you have a weak motor, or your machine isn't set to the proper freeze level, Also, make sure that your machine isn't backed up against a wall or I between two other machines. These machines need to Obsorb cool air in order to work properly and not overheat . The machine's fan, which is located on the right side, needs to be have a certain amount Of space from walls or other machines. If this doesnt work you can always call a technition to come and check out the machine, I hope this helped, best wishes with your repair

Recently bought a used Taylor Shake/Slush Freezer Model 430 to be used for shakes. It was used for aheks in the past and no problems, however, we put it together and the ice cream is too hard. Even...


The Taylor 430 thermistor model has two adjustments a fine adjustment, which is made by turning the knob, and a coarse adjustment that is made by turning the screw in the center of the knob. I suspect you are trying the fine adjustment, which will change the product + or - 2 degrees F. The coarse adjustment will let you set the product temperature between 10 and 30 degrees F.

As far as the clunking, those machines clunk a little. It would do it more if the product was too hard.

You are correct the machine will leak drops into the drip tray, but if it is more than drops, you want to address it. Should be as simple as a new tune up kit.

Hi, I hav bought an ICE-50BC ice cream maker. It is now 3 weeks old & has been used 3 times. When the ice cream begins to freeze the stirrer arm always lifts off the machine & stops working. when I...


See the BOLD section below..

You need a good simple recipe. So here is one.
(This is an unpasteurized recipe unless you boil the blended strawberries, wash the berries very well if you don't)

1 lb fresh strawberries (ripe is better)
3/4 cup sugar (most folks double this but i prefer the taste of strawberry)
3/4 cup whipping creme
2 1/4 cups milk (2%)
1 tsp lemon juice

Liquefy the strawberries in your blender. (Boil now if pasteurizing) and add the rest of the ingredients and blend.
You now have enough Ice cream mix for two partial batches. Divide mix in two equal portions. You should have enough to fill machines bucket 1/2 - 2/3 full.
IMPORTANT
Do NOT have more or less in the bucket as the machine screws up with more or less of any mix.
Insert Paddle and put noisy grey power arm on top.
Add a 2 inch thick hardcover novel on top of arm above bucket.
Add a heavy Soup can on top of this book (I recommend Habitant French Canadian Pea Soup 28 fl oz size).

Set timer to 40 minutes.
Leave room as it is a noisy little beast machine.

Come back and check just before it is done. If still too liquid add 5 minutes to timer.

Empty into bowl and add 2nd half of mix to bucket.
Clean the dimple on bottom of mixer paddle before putting back in bucket. This batch should take 5 minutes less as compressor is already cold.

Have fun.

The book and Soup can are essential to keep the silly beasts power arm from lifting up too early.
