First ensure that the blender jar is placed on the right orientation, othherwise the blender wont start.
Remove the Jar and place it on the other way if you are not sure.

If you still get the click, try leaving the blender power cord unplugged for a while. The click means that the blender has power, but the motor is not starting.
If it still does not work , and the jar is in the correct way and you did the above, then the blender is faulty, probably a faulty motor, or a broken wiring.

Why wont my kitchenaid foodprocessor start?


Take the bowl off, turn it on in the centre at the front where the base of the handle would normally be there is a light coloured button/plastic piece. Push it in with a matchstick. If the motor now starts then you have a problem with the safety switching mechanism in either the bowl or the lid. It is more often the lid. The only solution is to replace the faulty part. Easiest is go to a service agent and buy whichever part solves the problem.

Wolfgang puck bistro blender won't turn on, need


I had the same problem. There's a little button on top of the base that is supposed to get pushed in by a male-type piece on the bottom of the pitcher. I broke a match stick and duck taped it so that it pushed in the button on the base - Voila! it works!

Power flashes but doesnt start


Yes, I know what it is. On the base of the blender jar (the plastic base) there are some "fingers" that must contact the base to allow operation to take place. Turn it upside down and look at the little plastic "fingers" around the outside periphery of the plastic base.

These fingers tend to break over time... mine only has two left right now, and it only works in one particular position as a result.

Rotate the blender jar one spot at a time until you are able to operate it "normally". I use it for margaritas, and it won't allow me to push the button for Frozen Drink unless the jar is in the right position.

I am going to try and find a replacement base (or entire blender jar) somewhere... or else I will finally have to retire my favorite blender of all time!

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.

Black and Decker BL3900 stopped working


I had the same problem with BL6000 model. After using the blender few times it went dead, though on occasions it ran for a couple of seconds or so. I opened the base and saw the red light come on and off in response to pressing the buttons, but the blender would not run. I checked the connections and resistances across various points, and then decided to bypass the digital control panel by joining the blue (AC) and black (motor) wire terminals, as the control panel must be altering the frequency or voltage going across this connection into the field coils (and also to rotor). The motor is rated at 120V. The motor ran perfectly, though i let it run only briefly, confirming that it itself is all right. I think one must check a step further by studying the current and voltage characteristics to ensure that the motor does not consume more than rated 550 watts if you do not wish to buy the digital control panel ( part number BL5000-01-01, available through partstore.com or black and decker partner site. It should fit BL6000 as per partstore.com). The motor seems like an univeral motor. If anyone knows more about motors and has the same problem, then pl let me know if bypassing the digital control panel and using an external switch to shut the motor on and off is a good idea (digital panel and shipping will buy an equivalent blender in stores, about $18). I am afraid that if digital control panel does not let unregulated power be delivered to the field (and rotor) coils, then one may be putting too much power into the motor and it may burn out prematurely.

Kitchen Aid blender


to see if its the Triac or just the off button perform this: connect the blender,while pressing the off button press the on button; if the blender stays on and you dont hear the relay function (Light ticky sound) maybe the off button get a broken solder point. But if the relay is functioning and there is no way to change the speed the problen is the TRIAC. This is a small piece on PCB with a heat sink

My rarely used Sunbeam Blender Model #4181 stopped working


It sounds like one of a number of things...

* The contacts in the switches fried
* The motor itself fried
* The controller section fried

If you saw smoke, something fried... probably cheaper to simply replace the unit. Even if it still worked, it's a 120V electric appliance used with liquids, and I wouldn't trust it... I'd hate to hear that your blender started a kitchen fire.

5 speed ...steel


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, strawsj1234@hotmail.com

Lights blink, but Cuisinart Smartpower 7-speed wont turn.


The thermal fuse is blown. You can buy a replacement from RadioShack for $1.69 You have to remove the old one and solder in the new one. If youre "handy" its very easy. Take it to a repair shop, you pay about the same as a new one. Its too bad that most electronics made today are cheaper to throw away and buy a new one rather than fix them when they break.
