Question about Simac Ice Cream Makers

1 Answer

Blade stops turning but motor still running

Old machine from my father. Tried making ice cream but after a short while the blade stopped spinning, stalled. The motor and belt are still turning but the frozen layer of ice cream on the inside of the bowl is too much for the blade to cut thru. Is this normal? Is the connection of the blade shaft to the drive pulley designed to "slip" under heavy load? The instructions say to "churn" the mix for about 20 minutes but we only ran about half that before the blade stalled. While there was a thick buildup of frozen [firm] material on the sides of the bowl the material in the middle was still fairly runny.
Would appreciate your comments.

Hi Lew 2!

Sounds like the belt might be slipping prematurely. I'd try cleaning the belt and all the pulleys with an alcohol based solvent or rubbing alcohol (clear) to remove any excess oils that might cause slippage and see if that helps Is there any type of belt tension adjustment? If so, also try tightening the belt.. If the problem persists, you probably need to replace the belt.

If this helps, after the churning stops, remove the paddles and cover the top with plastic wrap or wax paper and allow the mixture to "firm up" in the ice bucket nother 10-15 mnutes, and then enjoy a great old-fashioned treat!

Hope this is a help, let us know how it goes, and good luck!

-WB

Check that all gears are in good working order. The paddlewill not turn properly and the motor will not run if the gears are worn ordamaged gears. Inspect the paddle for damage and replace if necessary. You alsomay need to replace worn or damaged gears in the motor. Lubricate the motor,drive shaft and motor bearings. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

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.

Welcome to FixYa
An electric ice-cream maker is a tabletop appliance for mixing and freezing ice cream at home. A small electric motor drives gears that turn the canister filled with the ingredients for ice cream. The canister is surrounded with ice and rock salt to freeze the contents. Alternately, a hand crank on top replaces the motor.
Although durable, ice-cream makers can require a few repairs. A common problem is damage to motors or gears from mixing too large batches of ice cream or from neglecting a jammed mixing paddle. The electrical cord can fail and motor bearings can dry out.
Read Following ...
  • Use your cylinder bowl correctly. If the cylinder isn't handled properly, your ice cream won't set. Make sure it is dried completely after washing so ice doesn't form on the walls, make sure to leave it in the freezer overnight before making ice cream and don't leave the bowl out at room temperature before using.
  • Check your freezer door. If it isn't sealed properly, or if it's constantly being opened during the freezing process, your ice cream can't set properly.
  • Handle the ingredients correctly. Don't let the ingredients warm and don't overfill the bowl. Check the manufacturers recommendations for the maximum bowl capacity.
  • Clean and dry your machine thoroughly. Use a damp cloth on the motor assembly; never immerse. Make sure to wash the lid, blade and cylinder according to directions and make sure the cylinder is absolutely dry before freezing.
  • Contact the manufacturer's support site only after you have exhausted your options. They may walk you back through the steps you've already taken, but at best your problem will get fixed far more quickly because you eliminated the easy problems in advance.

Ice Cream not freezing


Yes, they stop working sometimes. Same thing happened to me.
The Cuisinart ICE-20 bowl is precisely the same, and works with the Krups 337. You can buy the Cuisinart bowl separately. It costs nearly as much as the whole machine, but what can you do.

MOTOR DRIVE DOES NOT TURN


Dear Dannyvk,

I am having exactly the same problem with my rival 8200 ice cream maker. It worked once and stopped usual, when I first used it. The ice cream was wonderful.

However, when I started to make a second batch, the ice cream maker just hummed after I plugged it in. No movement of the pin/hub whatsoever. I tried to move it, by placing the steel can on top and moving it side by side. I plugged it in again, and experienced the same old humming sound.

Is it a fuse? Is the motor blown? Is this something that a small appliance dealer can repair at a reasonable cost? Can anyone help? I am so disappointed!

Faithful in Christ,
D.
