McDonald's is replacing older McFlurry machines after customer complaints about them being broken.
The Wall Street Journal reported that the new machines will have fewer parts, making them easier to maintain and clean.
The new machines, which will be rolling out in restaurants in the U.S. and Europe, will dispense more flavors than older ones and require less time to clean.
Older machines, according to McDonald's, require daily cleaning that can take up to four hours, which means during many locations' 24 hours of operation, the machines are out of use.
“We regularly service our soft-serve equipment during off-peak hours,” a spokesperson told The Wall Street Journal in January. “Customers who come in during that time may encounter a longer wait time or soft-serve dessert unavailability.”

NEW YORK — There's nothing like some Halloween cheer to spice up a fast food restaurant rivalry.
Burger King and McDonald's have been competitors for decades, but BK's prank take things a bit further.
Mashable reported that, in a new promotional video posted to YouTube, a Burger King restaurant and accompanying sign are seen covered in white cloth with two holes and yellow eyebrows reminiscent of the iconic McDonald's arches.
The Queens, New York, location of the restaurant also has a sign that said, "Boooooo. Just kidding. We still flame grill our burgers. Happy Halloween."
Whether or not McDonald's will respond isn't clear. If the past is any indication, though, it will not.

Hunting season has begun, and Arby's is offering venison sandwiches to celebrate.
The Atlanta-based fast-food chain announced in a Wednesday news release that restaurants at select locations across six states will have thick-cut venison sandwiches on the menu.
Restaurants in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Georgia -- states Arby's said have "heavy deer hunting areas" -- are offering the item starting Oct 31.
The sandwiches have thick-cut venison steak marinated in garlic and cooked for three hours. They're topped with onions and berry sauce in between a toasted roll.
Arby’s Brand President and Chief Marketing Officer Rob Lynch told USA Today that the "100 percent deer meat" comes from the hind quarters of free-range, grass-fed deer.
"Bringing venison to our menu also allows us to continue to set ourselves apart from the competition when it comes to proteins," Lynch said. "You simply can’t find this at other restaurant chains."
Arby's said the following restaurants will have venison sandwiches for a limited time that varies by location:
