KitchenAid 5 speed blender

I use the blender for mixing milk for the babies. The milk is in powder form and I just add water and stir. When I press stir all the lights go on and I get something like a power surge and everything spills over. What can I do to stop from doing this or to fix the problem?

Re: KitchenAid 5 speed blender

I have a Vita Mix 3600. I was making a fruit smoothie (banana, blueberry, raspberry), milk, small scoop of protein powder . Speed was on 1. I depressed the lever to reverse. I don't remember if I had...

Yes that is strange, if you let it cool down and try it again with pushing the re-set button and still does not work, try plugging it into a different outlet. Find something in your place that you know outlet is working, lamp, toaster you know. If does work in another out let, then you of course griped that breaker. Then check your breaker box to see what breaker is tripped, and switch it back on, might just of had a power surge based on putting on reverse. If that don't work, I suppose possibly something in motor or switch went out. Please let me know, if it works, I will take a banana smoothie LOL

I was using my blender and stopped to add more ice for a smoothy mix, but when I tried to start it up again the lights began flashing at random but the blender would not work. Why?

It sounds like it may have overheated. Firstly, Switch it off and let it cool down for a few hours. Quite often it will burst back into life. If not, you will probably need a new control board. These come in several variations:

I can't remove the top part of the blender as it appears to be somehow fused to the base. Little bits of plastic were found in the mix I was making

If plastic has been found in the food, this is a concern for you and the company. Call Kitchenaid Customer Service. They will replace the blender for you regardless of age and warranty. They will also provide you with use and care suggestions, if necessary. Their toll-free telephone number is:

Blender has lost top two speeds

With my blender, some of the buttons stopped working, and I found a simple way that fixed it like new, with no special skills or replacement of parts. To determine if this fix will work for you, unplug the blender and press on each button. As you do this feel and listen for a definite 'click'. If you here it for the buttons that are working, and not for those that aren't, you probably have the same problem.

I discovered that there is a tiny mechanical push button switch under each button. The switches are held snug to the bottom of each button by a thin metal bracket. If you have heavy fingers, the force of pressing the buttons over time, causes the bracket to deform, moving the switches further and further away from the buttons until, eventually, no matter how hard you press, they are no longer close enough to depress the switches underneath.

The solution is to simply open the blender (with the power cord removed) and gently push the button assembly back towards the buttons. To get inside you need to pull out each of the four rubber feet, and unscrew the phillips head screws that are hidden under them. Next, seperate the top and bottom sections by gently pulling the power cord through the strain-relief (don't worry, it goes back together very easily). Before putting it back together, check the buttons (always with the power cored unplugged !!!) for the 'click'. If this doesn't work, you may have to take out the two screws that fasten the bracket to the blender, and bend the bracket hold-down tabs with a plier, in the opposite direction of the switches (that way when you put the screws back in, they'll move towards the buttons. That's it.

Hope this helps someone like me save about $150.00 for a new one and keep another 10lbs. of junk out of the landfill.
