Sounds like the motor still moves things a bit, but you're wisely opting to not burn it out. :-)
Before you go that far, there are some intermediate things to consider. First of all, don't do anything with the blender plugged in! It can mess up fingers big time. No cutting corners here!
If the debris is external, soak it in soap and hot water, blade down, for a while, and remove what you can with a soft brush or washcloth, being careful with fingers around the blade. If the blade moves at all, grab, preferably with gloved fingers, or with a pair of pliers, and rotate the blade back and forth. If it goes a little bit and stops, don't force it, just go back the other direction as far as you can go. Hopefully after a few runs through the range of motion, it'll start moving further, and you can loosen it. Feel whether it seems to have friction, some specific spot where it binds, whether the resistance feels friction-y, or gummy. Be patient and see if working it by hand, maybe with help from a tool for grip, will loosen it up.
Also check the cord. If it's been wrapped around and around the blender for storage (no, I've NEVER done that, nope nope), over time it'll tend to get really twisty and prone to tangling on itself. it may also then get partially broken, particularly at the spot where the cord enters the body of the blender. You can carefully try wiggling sections of the cord while it's running. If things suddenly change RPMs a lot, then the cord needs to be replaced (which will lead you back to disassembly)
Trying to lube it is dodgy. This will be going into your food and drinks, and you really don't want it slowly depositing 3-in-1 oil or WD-40 back into your smoothies for the next month. If it comes to that, you'll need to take your original aim and try to disassemble it. Then you can make sure that any lube is only where it belongs.
take a flat head screw drive to the bottom of the blender and us it to hold the blender shaft in place while you turn the gear by hand or with a plyers (it is reverse threaded) and it should spin right off. when you get the new on it should spin right on.
Replace the blade assembly immediately. They are available from Cuisinart's website. Sugars and other stuff can gum up the blade assembly over time, so it will periodically need to be replaced. A quick and easy way to keep the blade assembly clean and working longer is to put water and a drop of dishwashing soap in the blender after use and run the blender at low speed for 15-20 seconds - an old Osterizer trick.
Hello, Do you mean blender blades? Either way, your blender blades/knives need to be sharpened. This is the key to making your blender last a long time. You may need to reach into the unit to sharpen them if the blade part doesn't twist off. Good luck :)
Do you hear it hum when you try to turn it on?
If yes, remove the cup. Try again... if the motor runs, try moving the blade by hand. If it is seized, remove it and clean it to free it again.
If not, possibly blown windings on the motor or divider circuit (which supplies different voltages to the motor for the different blend speeds). Repair will be required in either case.
i had the same problem after only one month, took in back to walmart and they would do nothing. i love the big heavy glass jar on this model so i baught another on thinking i broke it some how and guess what, the second one stopped after one and a half months. called around and no one would do anything for me, company sucks, i took the bottom cover off the blender to expose the problem and there is a problem with the curcuit board and built in breaker. i ripped out all the speed buttons and curcuit board and just wired in a on/off switch to the motor. works great again. i still had a extra broken blender so i took a old chain saw i had and turned that one into a gas powered blender. problem solved, any questions please feel free to ask, firstname.lastname@example.org
