Operating Instructions for ICE CREAM MACHINE

(Electro Freeze CS4)


Initial Cleaning when machine is clean:

Lift off the black plastic cover from the top of the machine to expose the hopper.

Pull out the feed pipe (stainless steel pipe) from its location (feed hole) and laying the pipe down inside the hopper.

Mix sanitizer with 10 litres of warm water and pour into the top hopper.

Plug machine into an electricity supply (if not already connected to an electricity supply).

Move the left side switch on the machine to clean and the right switch to day.

Leave to run for at least 3 minutes and then turn the left switch to the off position.

Do Not switch the right toggle switch to auto, as it will freeze up the beater and you will not be able to carry on with the cleaning until it defrosts (quite a long time!).

Put a bowl under the dispenser unit and pull the dispenser lever down on the front of the machine until the fluid stops coming out.

Clean the front of machine with a clean cloth, J cloth, flannel or paper towels.

Inspect the stainless steel pipe to ensure the feed hole is exposed; insert the stainless steel pipe assembly into the feed hole at the back of the hopper, making sure the stainless steel pipe assembly is seated firmly in the hole.


If the feed hole is closed! Lift out the plastic insert, 20 centimetres and turn the plastic insert ¼ of a turn to expose the feed hole, replace the plastic insert into the stainless steel pipe and if not in the feed hole; insert the complete stainless steel into the feed hole in the hopper until it seats firmly.


How to make soft ice cream in the machine:

Pour ice cream mixture into the hopper until it covers the engraved ring on the feed tube (5 litres). Pull the Feed pipe out of its hole (in the hopper) for 5 seconds to ensure the freezing chamber is full of ice cream mix. Very Important: Pull the dispenser lever down on the front of the machine until a continuous flow of ice cream mixture is evident.

Release the dispensing handle to stop flow.

You can fill hopper with ice cream mix as required or to a maximum of 9 litres

(dimple markers on each corner of the hopper).

Replace the black plastic cover over the hopper.

Switch the left hand switch to auto and the right hand switch to day.

Wait for approximately 10 minutes (when filled with 5 litres) until the machine noise has stop or reduced. The ice cream is now ready to serve at the rate of one every 22 seconds.

For hygiene safety and taste, draw off about 2/3 ice creams and throw away before serving.


To make an ice cream:

Hold a cone under the dispenser

Pull the lever down and with a circular swaying motion of the cone allowing the ice cream to fall on to the rim of the cone (not into the centre of the cone), ending up with smaller whirls to a peak.

For a perfect ice cream everytime, please wait 22 seconds between each ice cream.

Good luck, as practice makes perfect!
