Question about Simac 4050 Il Gelatao Magnum 1 Quart Ice Cream Maker
The instructions say the average churn time is 20 min. and at that point the blades will stop to identfy that the churn cycle is complete. Unfortunately the blades locked up at 5 minutes and the bottom 1/2 in. was rock solid and the top 2 in. was soup, not even soft serve. I pre-chilled the unit for 10 minutes empty. I have some experience in making ice cream so I have a good idea of the process. This wasn't agitating the mixture enough to pull the cold off the bottom, although it looked like it was working perfectly until the 5 minute mark. The curn blades look like they are riding just off the bottom, Ideas?
This sounds like a low on charge condition which you probably won't be able to repair yourself unless you are a refrigeration technician. There is a possibility that the cooling fan is not operational or the condenser is dirty. Two things that are very easy to check. First check the temperature of the tubing going to and from the compressor. Both will be hot if this is your problem. Blow out the condenser with compressed air. If it is greasy, use a cleaner. If the fan motor is not running, check for voltage at the motor. If there is no voltage check the switch and wiring. If there is replace the motor. If everything is clean and running the tubing from the compressor to the condenser should be hot to warm and the outlet around room temp. Run your fingers down the side of the condenser from the inlet. If it is cool after the first tubing bend, it is low on charge most likely and is probably not worth repairing.
