Ice Cream won't set up

I ran the machine for 1 hour and 45 minutes and the consistency was still like a milk shake. I used cream and half & half with just a little whole milk. The first two batches we made with this machine took right at 40 minutes and set up great. The last few batches we've made don't seem to freeze! The recipes have been pretty much the same...not really any variations.

Re: Ice Cream won't set up

Carri, Can you provide more information? What did you change in the recipes? How old is the machine? What was the temperature around you? Did you run three batches or more right in a row? -j.

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.

    Place the mixer bowl in the freezer. The amount of time required depends on the temperature of your freezer, but you should expect to leave it in the freezer for about one day prior to use. To check if the bowl is frozen, shake it gently. If you don't hear any liquid sloshing around inside, it's ready to use.

  • 2

    Place the mixer bowl onto the motor base when you're ready to make ice cream. Insert the mixing paddle into the bowl and place the cover over the bowl.

  • 3

    Turn on the ice cream maker and pour the ice cream mixture into the hole at the center of the appliance until it reaches the fill line. Do not exceed the fill line, as the ice cream will increase in volume as it freezes. Use the low setting if you want a firm ice cream and the High setting if you want a softer consistency. Do not add nuts, candy or chocolate chips at this stage as they can become hung up in the mixing paddle and stop the machine.

  • 4

    Cover the center hole with the cap and allow the ice cream maker to run for 30 to 45 minutes.

  • 5

    Add mix-in ingredients such as nuts and candies two minutes before shutting down the machine.

  • 6

    Turn off and unplug the machine prior to removing the ice cream from the bowl. GE recommends using plastic or rubber utensils to avoid scratching the inside of the mixer bowl.

    Don't have instruction manual. How do you make basic ice cream in this machine? How long do you freeze container in freezer? How long do you plug in?

    Freeze the the container for at least 48 hours before using it. You can use whatever ice cream recipe you like in the unit. Basic vanilla - 3 cups whole milk - 1 teas vanilla - 1 cup heavy whipping cream - 1/2 cup sugar. Mix everything together in a pitcher and make sure the sugar is disolved. Taste it and make sure it is sweet enough for you. If not, add more sugar. If you use 2% your ice cream will not be very thick and it will take longer to set up and freeze.

    Put the container in the ice cream maker. Turn it on (insert the plastic mixing blade if it has one) Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker if it has an open space to add mix through the top. If not - put the mix in before turning it on (my model is a little different than yours - sorry!)

    when the ice cream is thick enough for you - then its done. It usually takes approx 15 - 20 for soft serve/milk shake consistency - and 30 - 45 for stiffer - ice cream. The ice cream does not get hard - at best its soft serve quality. There are other recipes that you cook which I hear will set up harder but I have not tried any yet.

    You can make chocolate by using the same recipe above - and adding any liquid chocolate - or fudge. If you add strawberry preserves - it makes strawberry ice cream. sugar free drink mix added to the vanilla recipe above makes great flavors (crystal light drink power mixes ect)

    Good luck!

    The ice cream is granular in texture-

    I actually own the same ice cream maker, and it has made some very good ice cream for me. The most likely causes of grainy ice cream are too short of a time in the machine or recipes with incorrect proportions of water, fat, and sugar.
    Firstly, make sure that you are using one of the recipes provided in the maker's user manual, or a different recipe from another source which says that it works with all ice cream makers. Following these recipes will ensure that your ice cream base (the liquid that you pour into the machine) is the correct consistency and composition for freezing. For example, too much sugar could cause improper freezing by oversaturating the solution, or too much fat (or fat incorporated incorrectly) could cause the mixture to become grainy or separate.
    If you are using a recipe that calls for eggs, make sure that you mix them with the listed amount of sugar thoroughly before tempering them with the hot cream/milk solution. Additionally, make sure that you only pour a little bit (quarter - half cup) of the solution into the egg mixture at first, stirring thoroughly, before adding the rest. This assures that the eggs do not curdle when heated, which could cause a grainy texture.

    Finally, make sure that you are freezing the mixer bowl overnight, using chilled ingredients, and allowing the machine to run for the full 20-25 minutes. The ice cream should be a bit softer than the consistency of soft-serve when you take it out of the machine - easily scoopable with a spatula. If you like it firmer, an 8 to 48 hour freezer session will greatly improve the texture in my opinion.

    Hope this helps!

    What's the recipe for coffee ice cream

    • 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
    • 2 tablespoons instant espresso powder
    • 2 tablespoons espresso liqueur
    • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream

      Put the condensed milk in a bowl and stir in the espresso powder and liqueur. In a separate bowl, whisk the cream until it reaches soft peaks. Fold the cream into the condensed milk mixture, then pour this gorgeous caffe latte-colored airy mixture into an airtight container and freeze for 6 hours or overnight. Serve straight from the freezer.

      This is the best procedure to make a coffee ice cream.

    Simple Vanilla Ice Cream from recipe booklet is still staying liquidy. Have done everything as instructed. Ingredients are well chilled and ice cream bucket has been in the freezer for two days. Have had...

    Your freezer is not cold enough. I had a heck of a time with this machine the first few attempts, when I was in storing it in my main freezer (less cold than the one in my garage). Then i froze the bowl in my garage freezer - it is set to below 32 degrees Farenheit and is designed for long-term storage (gives anything I put in it major freezer burn). When the freezer is set to a low enough temperature, you will find that even 14 minutes is plenty of time to acheive the desired ice cream consistency in the ICE-45 (without having to pre-chill the ingredients).

    Other things to check:
    Make sure you are using heavy whipping cream and not half-and-half or other substitute.
    Make sure that you wait until you are ready to pour the ingredients into the bowl BEFORE taking the bowl out of the freezer.

    the shake mixers are an add on to the machine so it should be easy to repair just the mixer itself and use it and the other mixer in the mean time. most of the wiring and fuses for the mixers are separate from any for the operation of the ice cream machine.

    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.
