The best temperature for the freezer section is in the range of 0 F to -10 F. Ice cream will remain somewhat mushy at temperatures above about 5 F or so. Actually ice cream never does totally freeze due to the fat content.... it does get hard but does not totally freeze. Now ice on the other hand will freeze solid at 32 F , as you well know, the colder the faster it will freeze.

SOURCE: freezer not cold enough to freeze items solid

Here are some things you can check yourself. Does it run all the time almost non-stop? if so check the vents under the front of the frig and make sure they are clean. Aslo check the condenser coil (either in back of the frig,or under the frig)Make sure that coil is clean. The condenser coil has to have contact with the outside air in order to release the heat it removed from inside the freezer.
Make sure you frig has plenty of ventilation ( wall too close on sides and back) Hope this helped. If not then you should have a pro look at it.

insulated or not, garages are generally too cold for new energy efficient frigs to operate. ambient temp needs to be above 60 to work efficiently.

SOURCE: bosch frost free fridge freezer not freezing ice cream/pops at all and meat not totally frozen

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/board
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items. If it still has a problem then it might be the compressor and you should probably replace the machine.

SOURCE: I have a Roper RT21LMXKQ00 Freezer wont freeze

The problem is a defrost problem. The freezer coil has frost on it and thus restricts the cold air from flowing. This affects the refrigerator as it gets its cold air from the freezer. The ice will not make if the temperature is above 12*F and this also is why ice cream is like mush.

Freezer in my refrigerator is not freezing some things like ice cream and ice pops solid


Get a freezer dial thermometer (about $5-10 at grocery or box store) and check the temperature, then adjust the freezer (NOT refrigerator) setting dial (usually just inside the top of the cold cut section) a number at a time colder and see how that changes the temperature.
Vegetables and ice cubes freeze hard at about 28-30 degrees F, so freezers are usually set at about 5-10 degrees F, and not above 15 for safety. However, ice cream that is high in cream content generally will be runny to about 25, and soft down to about 0-10, so you may need to set your freezer as low as zero degrees F.
The comment on cleaning the coils is very important - you should do that about yearly, or more often if you have shedding pets. Be gentle with them - you do not want to bend them, as they carry refrigerant fluid, and repairs are expensive. The coils can be under or on the back of the unit, and it is best to not only vacuum them out, but also to blow them out if possible before vacuuming - with compressed air hose if you have it, else with a cleaned-out shop vac on blow setting. Be sure after you blow it out that the fan (usually accessible from the back by removing a cardboard cover after disconnecting power) is not blocked by a clump of lint - it should spin freely. The compressor (roundish tank with wires and tubing coming out of it) should also be blown / brushed off, as lint accumulation makes it run hotter, which reduces freezing capacity.
Also - try putting your ice cream as low in the freezer unit as possible (cold air sinks), and as far back as possible so it does not warm up as much when you open the door. Side-by-sides are bad for this, because all the cold air pours out every time you open the door. You might also try packing something around the ice cream to reduce the effect of opening the door - like bags of frozen vegetables, for instance, or even a wrapped layer of cardboard (although that will also make it take longer to initially freeze).

What setting do I use to make the freezer freeze food


When you are freezing something, set your freezer on its highest setting. However, if you are going to leave your freezer empty for a long time, you should change the setting to a lower one. Here's a great tip for ice cream: place a tub of ice cream in a ziplock bag before putting it in the freezer; it prevents freezer burn. You know when your ice cream gets so cold, it's hard to scoop out? Doing this stops that, it's keeps the ice cream just soft enough for easy scooping!

Machine is model 750-27can you help me? runs for only about 5seconds not long enough to make ice cream


Welcome to FixYa
An electric ice-cream maker is a tabletop appliance for mixing and freezing ice cream at home. A small electric motor drives gears that turn the canister filled with the ingredients for ice cream. The canister is surrounded with ice and rock salt to freeze the contents. Alternately, a hand crank on top replaces the motor.
Although durable, ice-cream makers can require a few repairs. A common problem is damage to motors or gears from mixing too large batches of ice cream or from neglecting a jammed mixing paddle. The electrical cord can fail and motor bearings can dry out.
Read Following ...
  • Use your cylinder bowl correctly. If the cylinder isn't handled properly, your ice cream won't set. Make sure it is dried completely after washing so ice doesn't form on the walls, make sure to leave it in the freezer overnight before making ice cream and don't leave the bowl out at room temperature before using.
  • Check your freezer door. If it isn't sealed properly, or if it's constantly being opened during the freezing process, your ice cream can't set properly.
  • Handle the ingredients correctly. Don't let the ingredients warm and don't overfill the bowl. Check the manufacturers recommendations for the maximum bowl capacity.
  • Clean and dry your machine thoroughly. Use a damp cloth on the motor assembly; never immerse. Make sure to wash the lid, blade and cylinder according to directions and make sure the cylinder is absolutely dry before freezing.
  • Contact the manufacturer's support site only after you have exhausted your options. They may walk you back through the steps you've already taken, but at best your problem will get fixed far more quickly because you eliminated the easy problems in advance.

Ice cream will not freeze, but will make ice cubes.


Actually, it's not as you think. Ice cubes are made between 0-4 degree Celsius and ice creams are frozen below -3 degree Celsius. Your freezer temperature may be between 0 and -3 degree Celsius and that is causing the problem. An ideal freezer should have temperature between -3 and -30 degree Celsius.

Ice cream soft


Ice Cream is the hardest thing to freeze in a fridge /freezer unit , you need a least 0 deg F
to harden ice cream. If the ice cream was satisfactory before the repair and the stat is set to max. it is possible you have an over charger refrigeration circuit.

Undependable freezing - sometimes will, sometimes won't!


High room temperatures will throw this unit off BIG TIME. Just to give you an idea how sensitive the freezer bowl is - if you run cold water along the freezer bowl before putting your ingredients in, the COLD water is enough to unfreeze the bowl! Don't remove the freezer bowl from freezer until you are immediately ready to begin mixing - not 5 minutes earlier.

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.

Happy mixing!

Ice cream has ice crystals in it


Ice crystals are more prevalent in homemade ice cream because it takes longer to freeze the mix. When you can flash-freeze the ice cream to very low temperatures very quickly, there is less time for the molecules to melt and refreeze, which causes crystal formation.

ice-cream-ice-crystals-in-myawdgdmzywgx1pl2igmxr0v-3-0.jpg
Here are some of the useful tips:
1.) When the ice cream is done, transfer to the coldest part of the freezer as quickly as possible
2.) Pre-freeze the ice cream bowl before using, and pre-freeze the storage container before putting the ice cream in it and into the freezer
3.) Make sure the mix is very cold before using the machine. Maybe put the mix in the freezer for 15 minutes before starting the machine, so that it will finish faster

Hopefully this information helps a lot.
