Wow! I feel dumb now! The problem was simply that the motor was put on the wrong end of the unit, as I looked at the grooves in the bowl I realized that once it rotates counterclockwise and back again, it needed to be turned around. If you look at the picture on the manual, you can tell the motor gets placed facing the other way. I'm sure this will fix ya Oxiria!

The basic old style ice cream maker worked by putting the ice cream ingredients inside the center container and the motor device on top turns the spatulas inside to mix it up. Then you put ice and water and salt in the outer bucket. The ice and salt make it very cold so the ice cream freezes as it churns. Some newer devices, just have a mixer and you put the whole thing in your freezer to make it freeze.
I run mine in an unoccupied room with an old hardcover book and a quart soup can on top. Just a noisy beast but great ice creame when you figure out how to use it.
Parts can be found here:
According to White Mountain, this happens because the ice brine gets too cold. The procedure they recommend is as follows:
After you put your cream can in the tub and attach your crank or motor, fill the tub with ice and run for two minutes to cool the cream can. Then, put two cups of rock salt on top of the ice and let it continue to crank. After the ice level has dropped 2-3 inches, put more ice on top and another two cups of rock salt and let it continue to crank until the ice cream is done.
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!

place the mix into the can with the paddle inside. Place the can into the bucket. Attach the motor or crank as appropriate.
Crush some ice (aboout 5 pounds) and pack about 2 inches around the base of the can with the can in the bucket. cover this ice with rock salt. Put two more inches of crushed ice on top - spread more rock salt (the smaller the ice, the smoother the mix). Continue this process until you are at the top. Make sure the drain is clear, start cranking (or motoring. When the motor stops, unplug it. Cover all with a heavy towel for about 30 minutges (if you can stand it) If for some reason the motor doesn't stop - you didnt put in enough salt. Expect to use about 1/2 of a 5 pound bag.
Remove the towel - the motor - the top - the paddle. Give the paddle to the kids with a couple spoons. Dig in for the adults.
I sometimes add a quart of water but you dont have to.
The ice makes the water cold - the water provides the freezing power, the salt lowers the freezing point of the water - the extra water might speed the process a little bit ... maybe not
Enjoy your delicious home made ice cream.
(BTW - the paddle does not move ... the can spins around the can causing mixing.
I don't have a flatbed scanner to scan it, but here are the operating instructions (at least for the 5201).
1. Place canister in freezer for 8 hours (must be frozen solid-so that you can't hear liquid in canister sloshing around)
2. Prepare your ingredients ahead, and chill them for best results.
3. Take canister out of freezer and place on motor base. Use canister immediately after removing from freezer, as it will begin to thaw once placed at room temp.
4. Place the paddle inside container. Be sure the tould side of the paddle faces up.
5. Lock the lid (the clear plastic piece that fits over the container)onto motor base. The tabs on the bottom of the lid should line up with the indentations in the motor base. This ensures that the lid is locked in place. When fitting the lid onto the base, the stir paddle should "fit" into the lid.
6. Turn the On/Off dial to the right (on position).IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU TURN THE UNIT ON BEFORE POURING IN THE MIXTURE. THE CANISTER ROTATES WHILE THE STIR PADDLE REMAINS STATIONARY.
7. Slowly pour the mixture in the top opening of the lid. It is at this time that you place the top on the clear-vue lid and leave the machine on for about 5-30 minutes (time varies, depending on the coldness of ingredients and canister, and desired consitency) If making ice cream, your result should be a soft, custard-like ice cream
8. When the frozen dessert is ready, make sure the unit is off. Remove the lid and the mixture from the bowl with a plastic spoon or scoop. NEVER USE METAL INSTRUMENTS IN THE CANISTER.
9. Ice cream will be custard-like. If you prefer hard ice cream, place in freezer in air tight container and allow to set until it reaches your desired hardness. Don't put the ice cream in the canister in your freezer for more than 30 minutes, as the ice cream will freeze solid to the container and possibly damage it.
Hope this helps... If you need something else, let me know. I will try to check back soon.
Preparing the Freezer Bowl: The freezer bowl must be completely frozen before you begin your recipe. The length of time needed to reach the frozen state depends on how cold your freezer is – for best results, place the bowl to the rear of your freezer where it is coldest. In general, freezing time is between 6 hours and 22 hours. To determine whether the bowl is completely frozen, shake it. If you do not hear liquid moving, the cooling liquid is frozen. For the most convenience, leave your freezer bowl in the freezer at all times so you can take it out any time for immediate use.
Features and Benefits:
Freezer Bowl – The double insulated freezer bowl contains a cooling liquid between the bowl walls to create fast and even freezing. In general, the required freezing time of the bowl is 6 to 22 hours before use. Additional freezer bowls are available separately for making double batches or different flavors without interruption. For additional information on preparing the freezer bowl for use, please see below.
Base and Motor Unit – The base contains a heavy-duty motor that is strong enough to handle everything from thick, rich ice creams to smooth frozen yogurts to slushy frozen drinks . The base unit features a generously sized on/off switch, rubber feet to prevent slipping and keep the unit stationary while in use as well as cord storage to keep counters neat and safe when the unit is not is use.
Lid with Ingredient Spout – The easy-lock, transparent lid secures to the base with a simple turn, allowing you to watch the freezing process as it progresses. An ingredient spout at the top of the lid is generously sized for pouring in ingredients and ideal for adding nuts, fresh fruit, candy pieces and more without interruption the freezing cycle.
Mixing Arm – The mixing arm mixes and aerates your frozen desserts and drinks, incorporating and blending all ingredients thoroughly.
