Hi there, I dropped the motor of my Gelato Junior on the floor! It still works fine, but the plastic shield that holds it onto the machine shattered into 10 pieces. Does anybody know where to buy replacement parts?
Please help, it was a birthday present for my husband and I broke it the third time we used it! Thanks - - Amy

I have the manual and recipes scanned. First it wouldn't let me post a PDF so I converted it to JPG. Then it limited me to 500K/page so I resized them. I added all of the pages and it then said it the solution must be between 3 and 10,000 characters and gave me no way to add characters. If you still want it, you can email me at email@example.com
I have an old Simac as well , & the same trouble , grinding in a surging sound,, we opened the trhtings, the moto is good, but the base has been broken . It looks like a star shaped cage for the motor, not centralized , causeign the gear to crack & eventually to go. I am looking for the spare part as well. Will let you know . PS the newee version is 4050 il gelato Magnum. Mine is Il Gelato 2380.
You can find a *free* (not like the other link posted) PDF download at http://www.makeicecream.com/icecreammaki.html . It's down near the bottom of that page, but it's called "Simac Il Gelataio Junior Ice Cream Maker Instruction Manual". It's not entirely helpful, but it's the same manual that came with my Lello 4070.
Try increasing your total solids (i.e. protein, fat, sugar). You could dissolve extra powdered milk or a liquid fat in the cream or milk your using in the recipe. Or try what the professionals do, add an additive like inulin, guar gum, or xantham gum. These are natural plant products that you can find in health food stores or Co-op's. They bind water and mimic fat textures so your ice cream can become more smooth. Do not add more than two teaspoons of any of these additives or your ice cream will be pretty chewy in texture. Hope this helps and have fun experimenting with food.
