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.

Your problem is likely that the paddle on the inside, is turning. Check the top of the metal part that goes into the motor - it should be square. If not and its rounded, then the paddle will need to be replaced

Why is my ice cream not freezing, used it last winter, following the same recipe and instructions but it is a milkshake consistancy


I had this problem when I decided the salt wasn't necessary on the ice that chills the container. The salt lowers the temperature so that it is cold enough to freeze the milk. Try more salt on it.

I need the directions for the Rival 8550 Ice cream maker


Fix Icecream mix as dircected on internet or where ever you get the recipe. Then layer ice and rocksalt around the out side of the aluminum can and then start motor.. takes about 20 minutes. or when can stops, but if you wait this long.. good chance of breaking the dasher ( mixing paddle). Note: if you have the wooden bucket, soak it in warm water for about 15 minutes to get the wood to swell and seal up.

New rivl icecream maker


Hi Sunshine!

Here is a recipe from: http://recipes.lovetoknow.com/wiki/Category:Ice_Cream_Recipes

Ingredients for Vanilla Ice Cream, No. 2
  • 3 cups cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
Instructions
  1. No. 2 Recipe, Whip two cups of the cream; to the thin part that drains from the whip add 1 cup of cream and 1 cup of milk, the sugar, and scald thoroughly.
  2. Cool and add the flavoring.
  3. Freeze till soft mush, then add the whipped cream.
  4. Turn the freezer as fast as possible for five minutes; remove dasher, repack and let stand thirty minutes before serving.
I remember sitting on Grandpa's old hand-crank ice cream maker
as a kid, holding it down for Grandpa! Add ice to the maker in about 4" increments, layering in between with a good sprinkling of rock salt (lowers the freezing point of water, so the saltwater solution is actually below freezing), crank until the motor won't turn, then CAREFULLY remove the paddles (DON'T CONTAMINATE the ice cream with the brine solution!) cover the top with plastic wrap or wax paper and let it "firm up" for 15-30 minutes. Then enjoy a great old-fashioned treat!!! Hope this helps, let me know how it goes, and good luck and happy eating! -WB
