The augers found in a Taylor 161 have o rings that go on the rear seal holes. When you check the seals for wear & tear, make sure to pay attention to how much the seals extend outward past the metal.

If the sealing o rings don't extend past the metal, the ice cream inside the freezing cylinder can pour out into the machine's moving parts and cause damage. The seals are found on the end which connects into a gearbox and spins with the blades to scrap the freezing ice cream mix off the walls of the cylinder.

The best way to prevent this from happening is to purchase new O rings and replace them when you notice that there is some wear & tear. Also don't apply lubricant to the bolt, only on & around the o ring.


For purchasing O rings we recommend They offer parts for all brands & models of frozen dessert machines that are up to 50% cheaper. If you use the code "SlicesFive" you can save 5% on your next purchase. ad with piggy bank and hand putting coins inside
