Hi, The water tray on the machine is probably broken where it connects to the motor. I have the same problem, and am trying to reach Greenway to see if I can get a replacement part. this seems to be a common problem with this ice maker.

Discovery kids ice cream maker instructions


Usually with these cheaper ice cream makers you put the bowl in the freezer for 12 hours and then put it on the machine and turn it on . Very important point turn it on so it is churning. Why so that what ever you pour in doesn't freeze solid and stop the agitator from churning. Most ice cream is Cream and sweeten condensed milk and flavouring. I do not have this exact ice cream maker but the one I do have has made three different ice creams in it so far. Add 1000 mL of cream to 250 mL sweeten condensed cream. Watch it for about 20 minutes till ice cream is solidifying then transfer to an plastic icecream container and put in freezer for at least 4 hours.

Don't have instruction manual. How do you make basic ice cream in this machine? How long do you freeze container in freezer? How long do you plug in?


Freeze the the container for at least 48 hours before using it. You can use whatever ice cream recipe you like in the unit. Basic vanilla - 3 cups whole milk - 1 teas vanilla - 1 cup heavy whipping cream - 1/2 cup sugar. Mix everything together in a pitcher and make sure the sugar is disolved. Taste it and make sure it is sweet enough for you. If not, add more sugar. If you use 2% your ice cream will not be very thick and it will take longer to set up and freeze.

Put the container in the ice cream maker. Turn it on (insert the plastic mixing blade if it has one) Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker if it has an open space to add mix through the top. If not - put the mix in before turning it on (my model is a little different than yours - sorry!)

when the ice cream is thick enough for you - then its done. It usually takes approx 15 - 20 for soft serve/milk shake consistency - and 30 - 45 for stiffer - ice cream. The ice cream does not get hard - at best its soft serve quality. There are other recipes that you cook which I hear will set up harder but I have not tried any yet.

You can make chocolate by using the same recipe above - and adding any liquid chocolate - or fudge. If you add strawberry preserves - it makes strawberry ice cream. sugar free drink mix added to the vanilla recipe above makes great flavors (crystal light drink power mixes ect)

Good luck!

Ice cream maker keeps locking up


I am not sure what your situation is exactly, but I think you are talking about it locks from turning while in ice... I suggest for you to put in rock salt around the cylinder to keep the ice from forming around the cylindar and so locking it from turning. Is that the issue? thanks,

Emerson IM90 Portale Ice Maker


My friend bought this item last week at Target for the $99 sale price. The reviews were all horrible about the red light (add water) indicator going on after the first or several first ice cube runs and never going out. About 40 out of 60 reviewers had this problem. We experienced it right after the first run when the ice cube full light went on. We emptied it and the add water red light was on. I looked all over the web for a solution and only found one that suggested tilting the unit backwards for 45 degrees and that would magically reset the light. It did not after several angles, light taps and basic shaking. Since there was no alternative and everyone who returned it also got the exact same problem with the new replaced model - we decided to open it up and investigate.
The electronics diagram is on the back of the machine and tell you where the water indicator is. We took it out (an inch long black tube along the water pump and backflow valve) and dried it completely. The cycle still had the red light. We submerged it completely in water and the red light still went on saying that the unit needs water. We determined that this is the bad part and the water indicator is faulty. We cut it out and joined the two wires. IT ALL WORKS NOW FLAWLESSLY. You only have to shut the unit off when you leave since it will ocntinue to run if out of water. If you're looking for a quick mechanical fix and have a unit that works when you need it and you are around - this isthe fix.

Motor Reverse Oxiria


Wow! I feel dumb now! The problem was simply that the motor was put on the wrong end of the unit, as I looked at the grooves in the bowl I realized that once it rotates counterclockwise and back again, it needed to be turned around. If you look at the picture on the manual, you can tell the motor gets placed facing the other way. I'm sure this will fix ya Oxiria!

TAYLOR 632-33 ICE CREAM MAKER


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
