Simac il Gelataio Magnum repair: what kind of grease to use?

I will be replacing a broken drive gear. There is some thick black grease that was used initially I bought it in 1992 and this is the first time it as been taken apart. Does anyone have any suggestions for 1, the type of grease to use for the gear and 2, whether to put grease on the belt, as well? Also, there is an admonition about keeping the machine upright. I worked from the bottom to expose the drive train and could replace it in the same manner, although, obviously it would be easier with the machine on its back. Does this have something to do with the refrigerant? If not, what?

The grease is most likely a lithium based grease. If there is absolutely no chance of it coming in contact with the product. If there is a chance it contacts the food then it has to be a food based grease. Never lube a belt! The reason that you are not supposed to lay the unit flat is because the cooling systems have oil in the coils along with the refrigerant. When laying it down, the oil can move into the expansion tube and cause it to plug up and make the compressor fail. You can lay it down, just don't start it for 24 hours after you stand it back up. This allows the oil to drain back down.

What causes the simac il gelataio to quit churning?


If you give the paddle a nudge, will it start ? If so most likely the big capacitor inside the machine. This capacitor will kick start the motor. If it is gone, the motor does not get enough power to get going. It is easy to replace once you have the cover off and should cost around $7.

I have an old Simac Il Gelataio Super. I believe the clutch is broken. It will only churn until the product is very soft. Then the blade stps because the drag on the sides is too great. Is this...


It sounds like the main gear is cracked were the paddle shaft goes though it.the d shaped shaft is spinning when the ice cream gets firm. i repaired mine by making a sleeve out of copper pipe and slid it over the cracked part. works great.

Simac gelataio magnum plus machine does not get cold or freeze. Motor works.


If the outer tub does not chill down, then the refrigeration is gone. CHECK that the airflow from the vents is active and free of obstruction.

If the tub starts to chill but the product tub doesn't get cold enough, you may have forgotten to put the Gin or suitable alcohol transfer medium in the outer tub.

Need repair manual for IL Gelataio 1600 ice cream


Best I can recommend is to go to www.delonghi-accessories.com. It's the site of a US distributor for Delonghi, which is the parent company of Simac, and it lists numbers for support.
You could try www.simac-vetrella.com if you speak Italian; or www.simac.com.au (I think this is a retailers site) might have parts, also.
Good luck.
