Question about Simac Ice Cream Makers
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!
