Thaw the bowl and re-place it in the freezer - make sure it is sitting perfectly level. Don't remove the freezer bowl until you are immediately ready to pour in the ingredients - letting it sit out for even 5 minutes will be too long, as it thaws quickly.

Hello Maryo803,

It is not normal for the paddle not to move in these units. First we have to determine weather the paddle is striped or the gear is stripped. At the bottom of the paddle there is a hole that attaches to the turning gear on the machine. Look and see if it still matches the sprocket in the bottom of the ice cream maker. If it does not still match I would suggest buying a new paddle. You can purchase a new paddle from Cuisinart for $8.00 and here is a link to the page. http://www.cuisinart.com/parts/ice_cream/ice-20.html

However, if it is not the paddle please post back to this thread and I will see if it is worth changing out the bottom gear.

High room temperatures will throw this unit off BIG TIME. Just to give you an idea how sensitive the freezer bowl is - if you run cold water along the freezer bowl before putting your ingredients in, the COLD water is enough to unfreeze the bowl! Don't remove the freezer bowl from freezer until you are immediately ready to begin mixing - not 5 minutes earlier.

This is the closest I have been able to find to the ICE-20. Hopfully the models are similar and this will be of assistance. If not please reply or repost.

As long as it makes the ice cream, it doesn't matter which one turns. If it's not making the ice cream, call Cuisinart, as both the lid and the mixing arm can be replaced.

I have the same problem, but it seems that it has gotten worse with time. When I first bought this product 6 years ago it worked fine, now the bowl won't freeze entirely and it has been in the freezer for two days (at the lowest freezer setting). I am wondering if the freezer bowl has a life span.
