Question about Breville BBL550XL 5-Speed Blender

1 Answer

Breville bbl550xl blender stopped working

All of sudden, the blender just stopped working, as though it had been unplugged. I checked that the AC outlet was functioning. I checked for a burnt electrical smell and found non. I could not find a reset button.

Any ideas? THANK YOU.

Did you check the fuse in the plug?

    Motor doesn’t start or blade doesn’t rotate?

    Check that the power plug is securely inserted into
    the power outlet and switched on.
    Check that the blender jug and lid are securely
    locked into position.
    Check that the ‘Power’ button and selected function
    or speed setting is illuminated.
    Be sure to press only one speed or function button
    at a time.

    If none of these work the motor has propably blown, you could check the user manual at this web address:

Making a high pitched noise while blending; is motor breaking down?


there are some Breville Blender troubleshooting tips here
http://brevilleusasupport.com/bbl550xl/troubleshooting . Tied in with that, a high pitched noise could come in from a few directions:

Some blenders will use reduction gears to get more torque and power out of a high RPM, lower power motor. If this is the case, the whine could be from the motor, though if you hadn't noticed before, that would not be reassuring.

Per the troubleshooting, check that the blade is firmly attached, and that the coupling from jug to base is firm. If there are gaps or loos spots, there can be buzzing or whining between sort-of-spinning parts and shafts or bolt threads.

Check the motor base for dried spilled-on margarita mix or marinara sauce or what have you. they try to seal this pretty tight in a blender, but it has to spin, so food spills can get in the gap and cause friction and resistance, which can in turn cause whining noises from parts not expecting the load. If you do any cleaning or poking there, make sure you unplug the blender first. Shocks are not fun.

likewise, make sure that blade rotates easily from turning the coupling on the outside of the jug. If not, the bearing may be siezed or contaminated. That you'd likely want to fix by replacement.

Hope this helps!

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

The blade has become VERY tight and will hardly turn. When I turn on the blender the motor strains to get it turning, and when it does it makes a horrible sound. I've stopped using it because I don't...


put a socket or a wrench on the nut in the middle of the blades, and hold the other set with a set of pliers, and, as the original poster said, it is reverse threaded.

I accidently poured milk into the glass pitcher when the bottom blade/cap was not on! it went thru the motor unit... I am trying to dry it - what to do? let it completely dry over some hours before trying...


I think that you need to flush the unit with water, I would take it apart, then let it dry COMPLETELY before plugging it in....I suspect that the unit will not be damaged.

What is the difference between the BBL550XL 5 speed blender and the BBL600XL


Basically, the more your pay the more you get. Extras are: Pre-programmed 'Ice Crush' and 'Smoothie' settings 1200W instead of 1000W. Heavy duty die-cast metal base LCD display counts up when a speed setting is selected or counts down for pre-programmed settings Hope this helps!

Can't loosen to wash blender .I turned to the right in direction of arrows Won't budge


Run the bottom plastic piece under hot water for a couple minutes and then put a dish towel over it so you can get a good grip, and turn 'CCW' (counter clock wise) to loosen.

The power switch lights up ok, then if I try to use any speed or Pulse the blender runs for approx. 2-3 seconds, then the power cuts out. How can I dismantle the unit to check the problem.


I have the same problem. 4 of the screws underneath are star-shaped and you will need the appropriate screwdriver for it. I purchased a "set" with heaps to choose from. The other 6 or so are normal. Don't forget to remove the rubber feet and get to the screws under there, too.

Hope that helps! I've had mine apart 3 times trying to fix this problem. Hint: It's probably not the power cord - I tried that already. If you figure it out, let me know, because I'd love to fix mine!

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.
