On a white mountain, the dasher does not move at all. Its the can that turns about the dasher. If your unit has worked for a while, I'd say its probably not because of what Sam describes, but rather the gear set inside the unit is worn. They will become so worn that they no longer mesh. So the motor turns, but the output does not. You can either buy a new unit or have the one you have repaired. See this website.

We have used White Mountain 6 quart freezers for over 20 years and have experienced this problem with 4 separate malfunctions causing it.

1. For some reason the square shaft at top of dasher does not penetrate far enough into the motor assembly. this allows the dasher to hang free while everything else seems to function properly. We learned that if you have everything ready and want to make sure the outer freezing doesn't occur, place a 3/8 inch slice of a potato over the male spindle in bottom of wooden bucket. This jacks the can up with the dasher inside and causes the shaft to go up into the motor and work.

2. Some cans had a female plate attached to the bottom on the outside to fit down over the male spindale in the wooden bucket. This plate has been known to become detached and lost allowing the can, dasher, and everything to drop down far enough to disengage the square shaft from the motor. The potato slice will usually resolve the problem.

3. A more permanant fix is to remove the male spindale from inside the bottom of the wooden bucket and place stainless steel washers under it to jack it up, and screw it back down with stainless screws.

4. Even if the entire male spindle becomes detached and lost from the bottom inside of the wooden bucket, we have found that a healthy potato slice works as a temporary fix. While the spindle is designed to keep the can centered in the wood tub, once the ice is placed around the can, it seems to stay centered and makes ice cream.

5. We think we have improved the situation on several occaisions by tightening the screws holding the wood scrapers to the metal dasher. We try to leave a little looseness in the screws--about 1/4 inch of free play. The scrapers are designed to pull out against the inside of the can as they turn and resistance to the mix occurs, but we think it is possible for them to be so loose that they get hung slightly away from the edge of the can and once freezing starts, it continues to multiply and creates a layer of insulation leaving the inside liquid.

6. At one point some of the lids were made of a very light aluminum type material. A tab on the inside of the rim of the lid was also light metal and attached in such a manner that they could become detached or distorted so that it failed to mate up with the tab inside the can. Current models have a heavy molded lid with the tab molded into it. We never had a problem with the molded lids, but practically all the light weight ones eventually failed. As the lid turns it's tab engages the tab inside the can and turns the can with the mix in it. If the tab becomes distorted or broken, the lid will turn normally and everything looks great, but the can of mix is standing still with no stirring. Therefore a film of freezing mix forms around the inside of the can.

7. Sorry about overloading you with information, but you probably can resolve your problem with one of these fixes.

I CANNOT REMOVE THE DASHER TO DISASSEMBLE FOR CLEANING. THE MANUAL FOR THIS SUNBEAM ICE SHAVER SAYS TO TURN THE DASHER COUNTER CLOCKWISE UNTIL IT UNSCREWS. FROM THE UPPER HOUSING. NO WAY IT JUST KEEPS...


Laura at ifixit posted a response 4 days ago that helped me solve this problem. ifixit(dot)com/Wiki/Sunbeam_Snow_Cone_Maker_Troubleshooting

I was unable to remove that dasher following the directions. When I turned the dasher counter clockwise it just spun and spun the motor. To fix this I removed the four screws at the bottom of the machine (hidden under gray rubber foot pieces) Removed the white base and held the clear circle motor wheel steady while rotating the dasher counter clockwise -it released in just a few spins. After reassembling the product the dasher removes per manufactures directions.
Hope others can get there machine fixed. I called Rival with this fix as well in hopes others could clean their machine. Thanks again to Laura at ifixit.com!

Does the dasher move on the ice cream maker or just the canister?


The dasher rotates, driven by the motor. The canister isn't supposed to move, but sometimes will depending on how thick the ice cream mixture gets. Presumably, if the ice cream were to freeze hard enough, the dasher would find it harder and harder to turn, until eventually the entire canister, with the dasher embedded in the ice cream, would start to rotate in the ice.

THE MOTOR ONLY TURNS THE CANASTER AND NOT THE SPADE


the dasher/spade remains stationary while the motor spins the bucket. That is how the frozen mix is moved toward the center as it freezes. if it didn't do that your motor couldn't keep going for long enough to freeze the mix.

The motor runs but it will not turn the dasher.


dasher is supposed to be statioary so it can scrape off the frozen mix as the cannister turns. That is the secret to mixing the frozen mix into the unfrozen part to thicken the mix in the can. It pushes the frozen part toward the middle as it scrapes 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
