The gearing on my Rival GC9151 broke on third use, unit was replaced by original shop. But then the gearing broke on new machine on second use.

I really hadn't planned to buy an ice cream maker. In fact, I had been so disillusioned by one that I had years ago that it had quite put me off the idea all together as it had been so much hassle that it was never used and, in fact, it even managed to get itself broken without ever having BEEN used. Quite a record in our household!
