Our 8550 did the same thing. It's the shaft that fits in the motor that's stripped and not holding the paddles still while the other part turnes. I'm sending ours back.

You need to make sure you continually refresh the ice as it melts, you also need to make sure you put salt on the ice. The salt makes the ice colder so that the ice cream can freeze up better.

How long do I churn mixture?

Probably 15-20 minutes depends on machine and mixture. Some machines stop churning when the ice cream gets so thick that it stops the beater from turning. If you have this type of machine, when you hear clicks turn it off. If you start with a frozen container vessel, your ice cream will freeze faster. Remember that longer is not necessarily better. The longer it is out, the warmer it gets, and will turn back into slush.

Discovery kids ice cream maker instructions

Usually with these cheaper ice cream makers you put the bowl in the freezer for 12 hours and then put it on the machine and turn it on . Very important point turn it on so it is churning. Why so that what ever you pour in doesn't freeze solid and stop the agitator from churning. Most ice cream is Cream and sweeten condensed milk and flavouring. I do not have this exact ice cream maker but the one I do have has made three different ice creams in it so far. Add 1000 mL of cream to 250 mL sweeten condensed cream. Watch it for about 20 minutes till ice cream is solidifying then transfer to an plastic icecream container and put in freezer for at least 4 hours.

Just receive this machine and am not sure which switch is the chill land which switch is the churn!

Simple. The churn button is the one with the swirl on it (i.e. indicating churn). The chill button just looks like a snowflake.

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.

Do you use enough salt to assist in the freezing period? What kind of salt do you use? Use rock salt since it works better than table salt. This wills speed up the freezng time.

Ice-cream maker doesn't fit together

Do a 1/2 to 2/3 batch. Put a book and a soup can on top of the mixing arm to keep it down.

The machine does make wonderful Ice cream, however it is noisy and fiddly. Do not try the full batch as it just doesn't work. I find doing 2 half size batches works best. Also find a spare room to run the noisy beast in.

Gets only cool not cold

Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
makes 1 generous quart
4 egg yolks
2/3 cup sugar
2 cups half-and-half
1 vanilla bean or 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup whipping cream
In a bowl, beat the egg yolks until blended and mix in sugar. Heat the half and half, stir into the egg yolks, and pour into the top part of a double boiler. Split the vanilla bean and scrape its seeds into the cream and add the bean as well. Place over simmering water and stirring constantly, cook until the mixture is custard-like and coats the spoon. Remove from heat and refrigerate until cold, or several hours. Remove vanilla bean. If using vanilla extract, stir it in at this point. Just before ready to churn; stir in the whipping cream. Freeze according to directions for your ice cream freezer.
