Failed unit. Go get a new one. They are 15.00 at Walmart and other places. I found some brands just keep failing like that over time. Not worth fixing.

Hello!
I actually own the same ice cream maker, and it has made some very good ice cream for me. The most likely causes of grainy ice cream are too short of a time in the machine or recipes with incorrect proportions of water, fat, and sugar.
Firstly, make sure that you are using one of the recipes provided in the maker's user manual, or a different recipe from another source which says that it works with all ice cream makers. Following these recipes will ensure that your ice cream base (the liquid that you pour into the machine) is the correct consistency and composition for freezing. For example, too much sugar could cause improper freezing by oversaturating the solution, or too much fat (or fat incorporated incorrectly) could cause the mixture to become grainy or separate.
If you are using a recipe that calls for eggs, make sure that you mix them with the listed amount of sugar thoroughly before tempering them with the hot cream/milk solution. Additionally, make sure that you only pour a little bit (quarter - half cup) of the solution into the egg mixture at first, stirring thoroughly, before adding the rest. This assures that the eggs do not curdle when heated, which could cause a grainy texture.

Finally, make sure that you are freezing the mixer bowl overnight, using chilled ingredients, and allowing the machine to run for the full 20-25 minutes. The ice cream should be a bit softer than the consistency of soft-serve when you take it out of the machine - easily scoopable with a spatula. If you like it firmer, an 8 to 48 hour freezer session will greatly improve the texture in my opinion.

Hope this helps!

Freeze the the container for at least 48 hours before using it. You can use whatever ice cream recipe you like in the unit. Basic vanilla - 3 cups whole milk - 1 teas vanilla - 1 cup heavy whipping cream - 1/2 cup sugar. Mix everything together in a pitcher and make sure the sugar is disolved. Taste it and make sure it is sweet enough for you. If not, add more sugar. If you use 2% your ice cream will not be very thick and it will take longer to set up and freeze.

Put the container in the ice cream maker. Turn it on (insert the plastic mixing blade if it has one) Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker if it has an open space to add mix through the top. If not - put the mix in before turning it on (my model is a little different than yours - sorry!)

when the ice cream is thick enough for you - then its done. It usually takes approx 15 - 20 for soft serve/milk shake consistency - and 30 - 45 for stiffer - ice cream. The ice cream does not get hard - at best its soft serve quality. There are other recipes that you cook which I hear will set up harder but I have not tried any yet.

You can make chocolate by using the same recipe above - and adding any liquid chocolate - or fudge. If you add strawberry preserves - it makes strawberry ice cream. sugar free drink mix added to the vanilla recipe above makes great flavors (crystal light drink power mixes ect)

Good luck!
