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!

From: Ice Cream Makers FAQ http://icecreammakersfaq.blogspot.com.au/2013/07/
Too Grainy, Icy or Hard - If the cranking mechanism becomes too hard to turn in less than 20 minutes on manual models, or if motor stalls in less than 20 minutes on electric models, resulting in coarse or an inconsistent texture of ice cream, the saltwater became too cold too fast. In this case, you used too much salt and the ice cream froze too fast on the edge of the can, and/or you did not used crushed ice.
Recipe Hint - Preparing the ice cream mixture the day before makes smoother ice cream and increases the yield.
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.
The dasher rotates, driven by the motor. The canister isn't supposed to move, but sometimes will depending on how thick the ice cream mixture gets. Presumably, if the ice cream were to freeze hard enough, the dasher would find it harder and harder to turn, until eventually the entire canister, with the dasher embedded in the ice cream, would start to rotate in the ice.
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.
Are you looking for operating instructions or reciepts?
Find receipts via Google.
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.
Do you need instructions for the mix or do you want instruction for how to freeze the mix?
Receipts should be easy.
As far as freezing, you need ice and salt. Probably one bag of ice and 5 lbs of salt.
Place the canister in the contailer. Crush some ice up ... pack it around the base about 2 inches deep. Put in a layer of salt. Repeat this until you are full --- Ice - salt - ice - salt etc. When you get to the top, stop plug in or start cranking. When the motor stalls or when your arm falls off, stop. Have your younger assistant put a towel over the top. Make sure the drain is open. Let the mix 'cure'. Go recover. Come back in 20 - 30 minutes and enjoy your ice cream.
I hope you find this to be of value. Enjoy your Ice Crean!
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.
you are letting the ice cream get to frozen, this should be a soft gelato ice cream, after 20 minutes turn off the top motor a leave on with the freezer unit still working or take out mixture put in tubs and put in freezer, the lid is designed to come off to stop the machine from breaking.

you are letting the icecream get to hard , this is a soft gelato ice cream , you must turn off the top motor and leave the freezer unit going after 20 minutes. for all spare ice cream parts go to http://www.magimix-spares.co.uk/
