Question about Breville CBL10 BlendMaster Classic Work Top Blender

Open Question

Blades do not engage

We have been using the Breville CBL10 for a few months with good results. Suddenly the blades don't seem to engage with the motor drive. The disk on the top of the motor unit spins, the blade mechanism appears to be intact but the blades simply no longer spin under load. The blades will spin when the jar is empty but without any real strength behind then. Its almost like the shaft on the blade mechanism is broken and the blades are just spinning with the momentum of the broken shaft but when we turn the blades by hand, the shaft is solid. Any ideas?

You would need something like this
Unfortunately your model is an very old one for which the chinese manufacturer no longer makes parts. Try to find the part at repair shops - they might have one , recovered from dismantled units - or just accept that it's dead and buy a new one.

SOURCE: The engine is working, and the blades will spin in

Sounds like the gear teeth may be stripped

My ninja blender motor starts but the blades don't turn

As stated earlier it could be the shaft needs lubing, remove the bottom part of the blender blade... the rubber thing that engages on the motor. I started with WD-40 and worked some lithium grease into it. Spins like new now.

Hello, I didn't see model #BBL600XL which is what

The jar has to be on for it to blend.

If you replace the jar first check the printing on your old jar. If your jar has blue print you will need a new jar and blade, Breville redesigned the jar and now the old blades don't work with the new jars. You tell the difference between the jars by the print color, old is blue, new is white.

BBL600XL/06A jar part number
BBL600XL/14A blade part number

Hello. I need two parts for my Breville Classic BlendMaster Model CBL-10. I need the removable centrally located inner lid and also the blade assembly features patented stainless steel twin cutting...

Breville CBL10 has been a fantastic appliance but now electrical section works at slow speed only so I will get rid of it, however the glass jug complete with lid, blade etc is still perfect. Does anyone need this part? I am in Rockhampton.

Breville blender won't turn on. The on light is flashing red instead of solid blue. Worked fine a few days ago.

FIXED IT - It's the screws on the bottom of the jar assembly, where the blades are attached. There are 4 Torx screws - star-shaped - and when these come loose over time the Blender will start to operate only sometimes. Eventually it will be never.
Tighten these four screws and everything will be fine!

    Grease build up around blade and where it attaches to base

    Grease can only creep into the blender vase if the oil seal has worn out, or the blenders blade shaft is worn and wobbling. Try cleaning all parts in alcohol to soften the seals. Rebuild kits and replacement blades can be found here (

    Breville blender bbl550 stopps after 5 seconds any setting

    Mine does this as well... 5 seconds of operation and then OFF.
    My guess is this is a fail safe where the blender is turning itself off to avoid overheating and what could potentially cause this overheating is the blender is struggling to turn the blades. What could cause this struggling of turning the blades I am guessing is a lack of oil in the blades rotating parts.
    If you hold the circular blade part and turn it, you'll probably find that its hard to turn? Mine is... and I oiled it up a bit and found I got a bit more usage out of it... although only temporarily.
    Ideally I need to pull it apart and oil it properly.

    There is a store at Bondi Junction (Oxford street) where I purchased replacement blades as mine broke. Dont have their details though. Try tracking them down.
