Freeze the bowl for at least 24 hrs, rather than the 12 hrs the manual suggests - it will make all the difference in the world. For really thick ice cream, freeze the bowl for a day, and then put the ingredients in the freezer until the outer rim becomes frozen. Very delicious!

SOURCE: ice cream not firm
The freezer bowl is sensitive. Go ahead and thaw it out until you can hear the liquid swishing around inside - usually letting warm water run through it is sufficient for thawing. Then refreeze the bowl, making sure the bowl is sitting flat/level in the freezer. When making ice cream with this unit, letting the freezer bowl sit out for even 20 minutes can unfreeze it enough so that you only get sludge. Do not remove the freezer bowl until you are immediately ready to pour the ingedients into the bowl. You can even pre-chill your ingredients by letting the ingredients sit in the freezer for about 15 minutes - although I have found that this usually has the opposite effect of what you have just experienced --> the ingredients usually freeze up so fast that the mixing paddle is no longer able to turn.

SOURCE: Over freezing ice cream....
Any water is going to solidify the mixture. Make sure you use heavy whipping cream, and not half-and-half or some other substitute.
As far as the mixture freezing onto freezer bowl - use the supplied spatula to try to scrape it off, but I generally have to count that portion out as lost. Running warm water over it will quickly wash it off.

I have the same problem, but it seems that it has gotten worse with time. When I first bought this product 6 years ago it worked fine, now the bowl won't freeze entirely and it has been in the freezer for two days (at the lowest freezer setting). I am wondering if the freezer bowl has a life span.

I would take the freezer bowls out of the freezer, run them both under the sink to thaw both bowls out, dry both bowls thoroughly, and then set them both on the counter so that the liquid settles toward the bottom of the freezer bowls. After 1 hour, place the bowls FLAT back into the freezer - don't forget to wrap them in a plastic grocery bag or some other sort of plastic bag. Try to make ice cream again after 24 hours or more of freezing. Let me know if this works, so I can pass the good news along to others.
