Question about Rival 8550-X 5 Quart Ice Cream Maker

1 Answer

Rival 8550-X motordrive

The 8550 motor has always been lsuggish, even when new, but has gotten consistently longer in the time it needs to make ice cream. Last time it was 1 1/2 hours. The motor is almost burned out and the machine is new. Rival doesn't seem to stock new motor drives in their parts line-ups.

    The motor on the 8550 is very sluggish. I called Rival and they don't stock any. I only used it a few times, but it's been over a year. Everything else is new I hate to just throw it away.

If the motor goes, it would probably be cheaper to buy a new maker... but try www.jardencs.com and call the 800 number under the Rivel Logo.

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.

Need motor drive and dasher replacements


I cannot find any parts for this. I have one that works great, but my ice cream can is all rusted out. The number is 1 800 557-4825 m-f 8a to 5p est, parent company is Jarden Consumer Solutions. Can't find anything for parts on thier website either. However, you can buy a whole new one for 62.50! It just doesn't make sense!
