SOURCE: hi, i bought cuisinart ice-21

It sounds like the step-down transformer is running just beyond its capacity, and so shuts down when the load gets too high. A load peek may also occur when cooler turns on.

Can you please post the power ratings of both your Maker and the transformer please ( AMPs or Watts or VA)

I have cuisinart ice cream machine, and i live in UAE ( united arab emarties). We have 220 v and the machine motor is 120v so i plog it in and i think i broken somthing in the motor so how i can fix it or...

First you can not run this machine on 220 Volts, it probably burnt up the motor and every thing else on it. The only way you can use a 110 volt unit on 220 is to buy a step down trans former and install it which will take the 220 down to 110.

What is A1, A2 referring to on the machine display panel

If it is the lower display with the 2 green digits, then that is referring to hours of service since last brush clean cycle. It is just a timer. Once it reaches 99, it start to use letters and numbers, so A1 would be 101 hours since last brush clean. b1 would be 111 hours and so on. To clear this the machine must recognize a brush clean cycle. the next time you clean your freezer door, make sure the power switch is off. it will display a 5 minute timer and 4 temperature readings. All 4 of those temperature readings must be above 60 degrees Fahrenheit and remain above 60 for 5 minutes. If at any point the temps drop below 60, the timer will reset. The freezer door must remain off the machine during this time. Once the timer reaches 0, the machine will enter a Unit Cleaned state and you can reassemble the machine.

What is process to winterize a Taylor ice cream machine?

To winterize a Taylor 794, or almost any water-cooled Taylor machine, we need to get all of the water out of it. Follow the steps outlined here.
1. Remove the supply water hose from the water source.
2. Remove the rear panel of the machine.
3. Locate the water valves. Pictured below.
4. Have one person open 1 water valve. (You can scissor two screw drivers to take pressure off of the spring.)
5. Blow out all of the water with an air compressor until only air comes out of the drain hose.
Repeat step 4 and 5 for the other side.

The motor will run hot because the AC power is only 50 cycles . The motor needs 60 cycles so heat is generated by the motor. If you still want to get a step down transformer, get one that will supply 50 watts or more. The more watts the better.

Taylor 8756. Electrical service too high???

This is your problem! There are solutions available for this problem. I recomend a Buck and Boost Transformer. You will have to purchase one sized correctly for your machine. Be prepared to spend a little money as they are not exactly cheap. Get the transformer from a local electrical supply company. Take them all the information on the data plate and your existing voltage readings. They should be able to determine what you need. The buck and boost can be wired to "buck" down the voltage to a more suitable voltage for your machine. You need to be within the electrical range stated on the machine or you will continue losing controls etc. This can be very expensive as well. Please note: you will need a skilled technician to wire and install the buck and boost transformer. They can be complicated.

Taylor Y754-27 Soft Serve Ice cream machine

Gearboxes definitely go bad. The first sign is usually noise, I would describe it as a rumbling. The best way to determine if it's the gear box is:
1. empty and disconnect machine from power.
2. remove the freezer door and beater assembly
2. remove the rear panel - 4 screws
3. Remove the belts on the noisy side
4. Spin the big pulley and listen for the noise, you may want to remove the belts on the quiet side to compare the two.
I have a video that was shot to help change the hex coupler, but you would follow all of the same steps to replace the gear box.

Machine won't come on

Check and see if all of the wires are on the freeze/cleanout switch. make sure the switch is in the freeze position. There is also a torque switch in back of the unit where the belt is,the belt tensioner engages and disengages this switch to control the viscosity of the mix in the barrel.check to make sure the metal arm of the switch hasnt been bent so far that it will not move, and that it does not have mix in it. Also check the voltage to the contactor coil. if you have correct voltage at the coil, then it is a bad contactor.

If you are wiring a Taylor machine to three phase power and you have a "wild leg" or "high leg" you must place the high voltage leg on L3. This will keep the higher voltage out of the control circuits of the machine. To clarify what a high leg is, it is created in three phase applications where a certain type of transformer is used. It creates two normal power legs, 110-120 and one leg that is only useful with another leg of power. If measured to nuetral or ground a wild leg will measure considerebly higher than the other legs. Hope this is helpful
