Sounds like the center rest in the bucket might be worn or gone and letting the cannister ride too low in the bucket.

Paddle is not turning when pluged in and tyrned on.


Be sure the little gear is inserted between the paddle and the motor. I have found that it falls out of the motor and then out of the paddle if you are not watching._437.jpg

NOT FREEZING PROPERLY


If your outer bucket is leaking down the liquid brine solution it won't freeze properly. The rival buckets are bad about leaking. You might try pre-conditioning the outer bucket before making your attempt at freezing. Just fill the bucket to the weep hole with water and let it sit for about half an hour, then pour out all but about 4 inches of it and start adding ice and salt.

Paddle does not move. Machine is about two years old.


sometimes the brushes take a set when unused.. Unplug the motor. Without using rnough pressure yo break anything, try turning the motor by hand using the paddle. You will be trying to turn the motor through ithe gesrs so use slow steady moderate pressure. This does work. as long as you watch what you are doing wiyh yhe force you apply. Good Luck. and enjoy the ice cream

Mixing arm/bowl will not turn once machine is turned on


The only thing I can really suggest is to make sure the easy-lock button is fitted into the right place on the lid, and to make sure that the ice cream mixture is not too thick. But, if the turning paddle is locked into place properly, and the mixture is still in liquid form, then there is a problem with one of several parts - could be the metal sliding switch or even a motorized part. These parts cannot be replaced. It is worth a shot to replace the mixing paddle - the unit has a 3-year warranty, so I would Call Cuisinart to get the part instead of ordering it online - they may or may not give it to you for free. If the new mixing paddle still won't spin, get the unit replaced either thorugh the store (depending on the store -each has a different policy) or get it replaced directly through Cuisinart. This model is actually pretty solid, so a second one shouldn't give you any problems.

Paddle missing


You can contact Rival at www.rivalproducts.com. I called the number and their customer service is fantastic. I too, misplaced my paddle and extension. The downside is that ice cream makers are considered seasonal and as such, so are the stocked parts. They had the extension but not the paddle.

What I also found out was that the paddle is between $5-7 and you will pay $8.70 s/h on top of the part cost (you can almost buy a new replacement unit). The cust svc rep was very kind and sold me a new replacement unit for $23.47. Hope this helps...

Motor does not stop


If you check the instructions that come with the white mountain ice cream maker, they talk about the problem of the custard not freezing in the center. It is because you have your salt to ice ratio out of whack. Too much salt causes a situation similar to your description. You want to shoot for 12 degrees and if you add too much salt, it goes lower than that.

There are copies of the original instructions online (usually in a pdf file format) that are worth looking for and reading. Rule of thumb 1 to 5 ratio of salt to ice.

Deni Ice Cream Maker Manual


I don't have a flatbed scanner to scan it, but here are the operating instructions (at least for the 5201).
1. Place canister in freezer for 8 hours (must be frozen solid-so that you can't hear liquid in canister sloshing around)
2. Prepare your ingredients ahead, and chill them for best results.
3. Take canister out of freezer and place on motor base. Use canister immediately after removing from freezer, as it will begin to thaw once placed at room temp.
4. Place the paddle inside container. Be sure the tould side of the paddle faces up.
5. Lock the lid (the clear plastic piece that fits over the container)onto motor base. The tabs on the bottom of the lid should line up with the indentations in the motor base. This ensures that the lid is locked in place. When fitting the lid onto the base, the stir paddle should "fit" into the lid.
6. Turn the On/Off dial to the right (on position).IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU TURN THE UNIT ON BEFORE POURING IN THE MIXTURE. THE CANISTER ROTATES WHILE THE STIR PADDLE REMAINS STATIONARY.
7. Slowly pour the mixture in the top opening of the lid. It is at this time that you place the top on the clear-vue lid and leave the machine on for about 5-30 minutes (time varies, depending on the coldness of ingredients and canister, and desired consitency) If making ice cream, your result should be a soft, custard-like ice cream
8. When the frozen dessert is ready, make sure the unit is off. Remove the lid and the mixture from the bowl with a plastic spoon or scoop. NEVER USE METAL INSTRUMENTS IN THE CANISTER.
9. Ice cream will be custard-like. If you prefer hard ice cream, place in freezer in air tight container and allow to set until it reaches your desired hardness. Don't put the ice cream in the canister in your freezer for more than 30 minutes, as the ice cream will freeze solid to the container and possibly damage it.

Hope this helps... If you need something else, let me know. I will try to check back soon.
