Question about Rival 8401-M 4 Quart Ice Cream Maker

3 Answers

I bought my daughter a rival electric ice cream maker. I also have the same one. We were making ice cream and the gears totally stripped and pieces of plastic was in the ice cream. I've never had this problem before with electric ice cream makers. I thought it was kind of odd that both makers did the same thing. Is there a problem with this particular ice cream maker. It is short with a wooden bucket. It wasn t cheap.

You have to read the instructions carefully. But it may be due to that bad quality of the product. You can have your best product on "sweeticecreamlove". This is the best where you can get the Best Ice Cream Maker Reviews and the top 10 ice cream makers and their comparison.
So, you can decide by yourself which will be the best one for you.

The motor works but won't turn the blade. As soon as I turn it on, it sounds like it gets stuck and stops. What is going on?


The inner gears are probably stripping. This seems to be common on the rival 8550-X-5. I will never own another rival because mine was that way almost from the start.

Perhaps some gears are breaking inside the motor? If you need parts, they are sometimes available here: http://stores.ebay.com/Lauras-Last-Ditch/_i.html?_nkw=rival+ice+cream&submit=Search&_sid=93311479

Could it be that your lid is worn, or the little indentation on the can is not holding the lid in place? There could also be a stripped gear in the motor.

Homemade Ice Cream Inconsistency


It is possible, but the rivals don't have much power. In an hour it should be frozen anyway. I have an 8550X5 and it never got very firm. Now the gears are stripped. Typical for Rival.
