Question about Cuisinart ICE-30BC 2 Quart Ice Cream Maker

Freezer bowl not frozen!

I have left my freezer bowl in my freezer for two days and it was still not frozen so I put it outside where there it's negative 6-15 degrees Celsius depending on time of day for two days and again when I move it I can still hear that the liquid is not frozen. Am I doing something wrong? Or is there a problem with the freezer bowl? Please help! Am most anxious to make some delicious icecream. :)

Preparing the Freezer Bowl:
The freezer bowl must be completely frozen before you begin your recipe. The length of time needed to reach the frozen state depends on how cold your freezer is – for best results, place the bowl to the rear of your freezer where it is coldest. In general, freezing time is between 6 hours and 22 hours. To determine whether the bowl is completely frozen, shake it. If you do not hear liquid moving, the cooling liquid is frozen. For the most convenience, leave your freezer bowl in the freezer at all times so you can take it out any time for immediate use.

Features and Benefits:

  • Freezer Bowl – The double insulated freezer bowl contains a cooling liquid between the bowl walls to create fast and even freezing. In general, the required freezing time of the bowl is 6 to 22 hours before use. Additional freezer bowls are available separately for making double batches or different flavors without interruption. For additional information on preparing the freezer bowl for use, please see below.
  • Base and Motor Unit – The base contains a heavy-duty motor that is strong enough to handle everything from thick, rich ice creams to smooth frozen yogurts to slushy frozen drinks . The base unit features a generously sized on/off switch, rubber feet to prevent slipping and keep the unit stationary while in use as well as cord storage to keep counters neat and safe when the unit is not is use.
  • Lid with Ingredient Spout – The easy-lock, transparent lid secures to the base with a simple turn, allowing you to watch the freezing process as it progresses. An ingredient spout at the top of the lid is generously sized for pouring in ingredients and ideal for adding nuts, fresh fruit, candy pieces and more without interruption the freezing cycle.
  • Mixing Arm – The mixing arm mixes and aerates your frozen desserts and drinks, incorporating and blending all ingredients thoroughly.
  • Instruction/Recipe Book - The included instruction and recipe booklet helps you get started with over 30 recipes and variations for ice creams, sherbets, sorbets, frozen yogurts and frozen drinks.

    Cuisinart Ice Cream Freezer Bowls Not Freezing Anymore


    I would take the freezer bowls out of the freezer, run them both under the sink to thaw both bowls out, dry both bowls thoroughly, and then set them both on the counter so that the liquid settles toward the bottom of the freezer bowls. After 1 hour, place the bowls FLAT back into the freezer - don't forget to wrap them in a plastic grocery bag or some other sort of plastic bag. Try to make ice cream again after 24 hours or more of freezing. Let me know if this works, so I can pass the good news along to others.

    Ice cream maker instructions


    Hi,
    I have the booklet for this machine.
    1) you can use any IC recipe as long as it does not exceed 1 quart. This is for vanilla:
    1/2 c sugar
    1 1/4 c half&half
    1 1/2 c heavy whipping cream
    2 eggs 2 tsp vanilla
    with mixer beat eggs and sugar until thincl and cream colored. Addthe cream and vanilla mix well.

    the machine:

    you want to put the freezer cylinder in a plastic bag (to prevent freezer burn) and then put it in the back of your freezer until completely frozen 6 to 22 hours. You should not be able to hear liquid slosh when you shake it. For making stuff quick they recommend keeping it in the freezer in the bag.

    step one: Put maker on flat surface.

    two: Put the mixer bowl on the base.

    three: Place frozen cylinder into to the mixer bowl (the big one) do this when you are ready to start the IC because the cylinder begins defrosting right away.

    four: set the paddle on top of the cylinder, placing the peg on the freezer cylinder inside the peg hole on the paddle

    five: Place the cover over the mixer bowl, locking the grooves on the motor base. Plug in, turn on, the bowl and cylinder will begin to turn.

    six: Pour the recipe into the feeder hole of the cover then put the lid on.

    You will need 20 to 40 minutes or until mixture is frozen. Don't stop the machine until done. If you want hard ice cream spoon the soft serve into an airtight bowl and put it in the freezer till it is like you want it.

    Hope this helps, Elizabeth

    Ice cream is soupy & when I freeze it it becomes icy


    Freeze the bowl for at least 24 hrs, rather than the 12 hrs the manual suggests - it will make all the difference in the world. For really thick ice cream, freeze the bowl for a day, and then put the ingredients in the freezer until the outer rim becomes frozen. Very delicious!

    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.

    Put the ice cream bowl in the dishwasher


    The only way to tell is by putting it in the freezer for 24 hours, and then trying to make a batch of ice cream. If it doesn't freeze or make the ice cream properly, then you will need to get a replacement bowl from Cuisinart - they are available.

    Cuisinart ice cream-frozen yougurt maker& sorbet maker CIM 60 series


    I have the same problem, but it seems that it has gotten worse with time. When I first bought this product 6 years ago it worked fine, now the bowl won't freeze entirely and it has been in the freezer for two days (at the lowest freezer setting). I am wondering if the freezer bowl has a life span.

    My freezer bowl not freezing anymore I let in the freezer more the 24 hours and it's still liquid


    Thaw the bowl and re-place it in the freezer - make sure it is sitting perfectly level. Don't remove the freezer bowl until you are immediately ready to pour in the ingredients - letting it sit out for even 5 minutes will be too long, as it thaws quickly.

    Tank won't freeze


    The keys are to make sure the freezer is cold enough, and to make sure the bowl is level when it is sitting in the freezer. 24 hours is usually required, despite what manual says.

    If all else fails, the freezer bowls are replaceable - you can order them from Cuisinart - if you are in-warranty, they may even be able to give it to you for free.
