Any maintenance issues on a taylor 430 frozen drink machine


The Taylor 430 is a solid machine. The only maintenance you need to worry about are:
1. Cleaning - Follow the instructions. Supplies are here.
2. Replace wear parts - Scraper Blades and Tune-up kit

The next most purchased part for that machine is the freezer door, but the good news is the new replacement is much stronger than the old ones.

My wife dropped our icecream motor and i am wondering where I can purchase a new one


You can try contacting Rival to see if they sell a replacement motor. Nothing is listed on their parts and accessories page. It may just be more economical to buy a new ice cream maker, though. Most of the cost is likely to be in the motor, and even if the motor's available it may be just a few dollars more for a whole new appliance. Amazon.com lists two almost identical models by a company called Maxi-Matic, a 6-quart model for $69.99 and a 4-quart for about $10 less. You might be better off just buying new and get a warranty with it.

Sadly, almost every small appliance now is a throw-away item.

Unfortunately, gel disc is now broken, please advise me where I can get a replacement and approx how much it will be. So I can decide to either buy replacement or a brand new ice cream maker. Grateful for...


I have the same dilemna. After going to the website, I called Rival. The ice cream maker is discontiued, which is why it wasn't a part listed on their website that could be ordered. The only solutions I can see are: buy a whole new unit or try looking at thrift stores.

Taylor Y754-27 Soft Serve Ice cream machine


Gearboxes definitely go bad. The first sign is usually noise, I would describe it as a rumbling. The best way to determine if it's the gear box is:
1. empty and disconnect machine from power.
2. remove the freezer door and beater assembly
2. remove the rear panel - 4 screws
3. Remove the belts on the noisy side
4. Spin the big pulley and listen for the noise, you may want to remove the belts on the quiet side to compare the two.
I have a video that was shot to help change the hex coupler, but you would follow all of the same steps to replace the gear box.

Ice cream maker "agitator" broke


I searched in vain to find a standalone part for the Rival 8401-M, but here are some leads:

You can call Rival and see if they still have the part in stock, although it is doubtful since they don't even have support for the machine on their website anymore.

I found several never-opened and used Rival 8401-M's in working condition on eBay and other places on the web, ranging in price from $16.00 - $35.00. For electronic products that are more than 4 years old, I reccomend buying used, because a unit that is NIB (New-In-Box) may be dead as a doornail (The analogy I use is this: if you have a Ferrari, no matter how well-built, and you let it sit unused for 7 years - when you go to start up that Ferrari after 7 years, it's not going to work because the parts have degraded, etc over that time period). Here is alink to an auction for a working, used Rival 8401-M

If your blade is broken, I did not find replacement blades anywhere on the web. If it is, in fact, the agitator that is broken, I have two leads:
Here is a web site that will show you what an agitator looks like (it is the tiny part that they are pointing to in red):
http://www.twinsupply.com/proddetail.asp?prod=176-1055&partner=herb

Ace Hardware, at one point, stocked the Rival 8401-M - if you take it in to them, you can see if they have an agitator that would work (if it is, in fact, the agitator, and not the blade that is broken).

My final reccomendation is tongue-in-cheek: Buy a new Cuisinart ice-cream maker instead - a simple one like the ICE-20 can be had for $20-$40 brand new.

Good luck!

Suspected motor burnout


Yes I too would guess motor burnout ( Motor is very overworked as ice cream hardens) You could replace the motor but I would suggest buying a new one because the cost of a major repair like that may very well cost more then a new unit!
I hope I answered the question to your satisfaction!
Please rate my response!
Thank You!

Need new paddle


Donvier's icecream maker brand was apparently sold to Rival. Not sure whether Rival supports their old models,though.
