Question about Simac 4050 Il Gelatao Magnum 1 Quart Ice Cream Maker
My Simac gelataio machine freezes but has suddenly stopped churning. Can this be repaired?
See http://simac.com.au/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=21&Itemid=35 for GC-5000 manuals (one in Italian, with diagram). Not exactly the same thing, but looks pretty similar

If the outer tub does not chill down, then the refrigeration is gone. CHECK that the airflow from the vents is active and free of obstruction.
If the tub starts to chill but the product tub doesn't get cold enough, you may have forgotten to put the Gin or suitable alcohol transfer medium in the outer tub.

SOURCE: I am trying to repair
some of these machines are just not worth repairing at times as the problem is spare parts ,now if it was a carpagarne or however its spelt then parts are available from italy direct from the factory but this machine i have never heard off ,if you cannot locate parts from the internet then chances are they are not available ,the bearings are not a problem as a auto factor will most likely have them or a timkin agent will have equilivent ,a engineering shop can and should be able to re manufacture parts in stainless for the machine if their willing and able .but i do know these soft ice cream machines cost a arm and a leg and i dont know why

It sounds like the main gear is cracked were the paddle shaft goes though it.the d shaped shaft is spinning when the ice cream gets firm. i repaired mine by making a sleeve out of copper pipe and slid it over the cracked part. works great.

Had same thing. Try turning timer a bit. Sounds silly, but may fix. I took off cover (4 screws, two on each side, cover lifts straight up, then tilt back) tapped capacitor, pulled leads, reattached leads, removed motor (elco mg, attached with three screws) etc. Turned blades with motor out, started motor unattached to "transmission", put everything back together and voila! I think the timer was the issue.
