Beater stuck in Taylor Ice Cream Machine Model Number 168-27

I have a Taylor Ice Cream Machine Model Number 168-27. One of the beaters is stuck inside the freeing cylinder. I cannot remove it to clean the cylinder. Is there a special trick I can use to remove the beater? Is there a place to purchase Taylor replacement parts?

These units are usually set up to have the beater rotate in a clockwise direction facing front. If they get stuck, it is usually due to excessive wear or the hexed end has been lubed and has created a suction seal in it's counter part. Try rotating the beater in a counter clockwise direction while holding the drive wheel pulley stationary. Be sure to unplug unit first. this has worked for me in the past but can be very difficult at times.

New freezer set on 4. Runs a lot. Could we raise setting safely.


Yes you can raise the setting if you'd like. The rule of thumb is to raise it one number and allow it to adjust for 24 hours to see a change in internal temperatures. Freezers can run more for several reasons. One is the amount of product inside- the more the merrier. More frozen food will hold the temperatures longer. Another common issue is location, my own freezer is located in the garage at my house and runs quite a bit in the summer, as the temperature outside increases the lenght and frequency of the freezer running will increase. Freezers transfer the heat they remove from inside the box to the outside of the box, so the warmer it is outside, the longer they have to run to do the job.
Also be sure to keep a good eye on this, keep a thermometer in it and make sure you are not having to turn it way up to get it to "0 f" at least, as you may have a sealed system problem. Real ice cream (not fat free or sherbert) is a great indicator of temperatures- at 0 degrees f. real ice cream is firm but scoopable, 5 below and it's pretty hard, 5 above and is't starting to get soft on the outside.
Hope this was helpful to you!

I have a Taylor Ice Cream Machine 754-27, how can I tell if it is water cooled or air cooled and 1 or 3 phase?


If you remove the side panels and there is a fan motor and blade next to a coil that looks something like a radiator in a car, it is air cooled. If water cooled, it will have fittings so water lines can be attached. Also, look at the beater motor and compressor. On their name plates it will say whether it is single or three phased power.
Hope this helps.

Ice Cream Dipping cabinet running but not working?!


Ice cream needs to be below 0 degrees. It sounds like you have a refrigeration problem. The unit runs constantly because the temperature control is never satisfied. ;)

Taylor 1999, series 754, 3phase ice cream dispenser freeze up


I have had this with other Taylor machines. The rear drive bearing has a pin driven into the coupling that turns the beater bar. This pin will shear off. The pulley will turn and give the illution that the beater bar is turning but it really isn't. With the unit unplugged, try holding the beater bar still and try turning the large drive pulley.
I have also had situations where the hex piece that the drive shaft goes into, was rounded out. As soon as the mix go a little firm, the beater bar would stop turning but the rear drive assy didn't.
Check this out and let me know.

Paddle won't spin


I have a White Moutain freezer motor that is two years old and had the same problem as yours. During my last batch of ice cream the motor was spinning but the beater wasn't turning. I removed the motor and the square drive was spinning but I could stop it with my finger, there was no power like a gear or clutch was shot. I called the 1-800 number on the motor and they said they would send me a new motor. I didn't need to show a receipt or anything. All they wanted me to do was return the broken motor and they even supplied paid postage. I recomend you call them and ask for a new motor.

Hoshizaki ice machine with constant beeping every 3 seconds


Most likely(50% of the times) Your Ice machine need a real cleaning. not just run clean cycle with ice machine cleaner. every 6 month call HVAC-R guys - machine will last half time longer if u schedule proper maintenance with them. I have seen It all: people try to call "friend", or someone who "knows" how this machines work. Real clean would take up to 3 hours for people who know what they doing. Here is one of my videos, when 3 beeps - long freeze cycle is not common and all others would offer You to get a new Ice Machine. Bill to the owner was 950$, New Machine 3450$ plus labour to install 600$.
