Question about Ice Cream Makers
SOURCE: ice cream not firm
The freezer bowl is sensitive. Go ahead and thaw it out until you can hear the liquid swishing around inside - usually letting warm water run through it is sufficient for thawing. Then refreeze the bowl, making sure the bowl is sitting flat/level in the freezer. When making ice cream with this unit, letting the freezer bowl sit out for even 20 minutes can unfreeze it enough so that you only get sludge. Do not remove the freezer bowl until you are immediately ready to pour the ingedients into the bowl. You can even pre-chill your ingredients by letting the ingredients sit in the freezer for about 15 minutes - although I have found that this usually has the opposite effect of what you have just experienced --> the ingredients usually freeze up so fast that the mixing paddle is no longer able to turn.

If you use Comet or Ajax on a sponge and scrub hard, most or all of the rust should come off. If there is any rust left behind after scrubbing for 30 seconds, it will probably not interfere with the quality of the ice cream. To prevent further rust, dry the container and apply a little food grade mineral oil available at CVS.

I would take the freezer bowls out of the freezer, run them both under the sink to thaw both bowls out, dry both bowls thoroughly, and then set them both on the counter so that the liquid settles toward the bottom of the freezer bowls. After 1 hour, place the bowls FLAT back into the freezer - don't forget to wrap them in a plastic grocery bag or some other sort of plastic bag. Try to make ice cream again after 24 hours or more of freezing. Let me know if this works, so I can pass the good news along to others.

Had same thing. Try turning timer a bit. Sounds silly, but may fix. I took off cover (4 screws, two on each side, cover lifts straight up, then tilt back) tapped capacitor, pulled leads, reattached leads, removed motor (elco mg, attached with three screws) etc. Turned blades with motor out, started motor unattached to "transmission", put everything back together and voila! I think the timer was the issue.
