Are you looking for operating instructions or recipes? Recipes available everywhere ... really. Operating? Here is what you do: Get some ice cubes ... crush them with a hammer ... you will need a lot ... the finer crushed the smoother the ice cream. Put the mix in the metal container and put about 4 -6 inches of ice in the bucket with some water. Put about 1# of rock salt on the ice. More ice ... more salt ... more ice ... more salt ... more ice ... more salt until the bucket is full. Start the machine. Your ice cream should be ready in about 1/2 hour. When the machine stops cranking ... remove the mixer from the can. If you can stand it ... let the ice cream sit in the container for 1/2 hour ... the longer you wait the better the batch. But who can wait???
The ice cools the water, the salt reduces the temp of the water to cause the mix to freeze.
I hope this helps you ... this is how we make home made ice cream every summer ... what a special treat for the kids ... young and old alike.

Find receipts via Google.
place the mix into the can with the paddle inside. Place the can into the bucket. Attach the motor or crank as appropriate.
Crush some ice (aboout 5 pounds) and pack about 2 inches around the base of the can with the can in the bucket. cover this ice with rock salt. Put two more inches of crushed ice on top - spread more rock salt (the smaller the ice, the smoother the mix). Continue this process until you are at the top. Make sure the drain is clear, start cranking (or motoring. When the motor stops, unplug it. Cover all with a heavy towel for about 30 minutges (if you can stand it) If for some reason the motor doesn't stop - you didnt put in enough salt. Expect to use about 1/2 of a 5 pound bag.
Remove the towel - the motor - the top - the paddle. Give the paddle to the kids with a couple spoons. Dig in for the adults.
I sometimes add a quart of water but you dont have to.
The ice makes the water cold - the water provides the freezing power, the salt lowers the freezing point of the water - the extra water might speed the process a little bit ... maybe not
Enjoy your delicious home made ice cream.
(BTW - the paddle does not move ... the can spins around the can causing mixing.
I have had the same problem with two different portable ice makers, the ice tray inside is broken so you will have to send it to them and get it fixed. Hopefully eventually they will make the tray out of a stronger plastic.
