Question about Breville BCS500XL Single-Speed Handheld Blender
Most likely its the large yellow capacitor on the main circuit board. I've had this fail on my Breville coffee machine and blender.The coffee machine was a 1.5uf capicitor nd the blender 1.0uf.rated at 275vac. what happens is over the years of power spikes and surges etc the capacitor breaks down to a lesser value than its original "capacity. ie 1uf down to 0.3uf it provides enough power to drive the display electronics But not enough to power the relay to turn the motor on.
. there are 3 screws under the label. Peel off the label . remove the 3 screw. remove the fan cover.
to remove the fan . hold on to the blender jar mounting drive and unscrew the fan. a small square nut is what holds the fan on. remove the rubber feet an the 4 star screws under the rubber feet.
you can then remove the base.
Most likely the fuse is OK. However I've found ( in repairing mine) the big yellow capacitor 1uf 275vac is at fault. over time and power surges it breaks down and cannot pass enough "power:" for the power supply to call the relay to turn on the motor. You van get a new capacitor from Jaycar ( aus or NZ ) for about $6.00 . unsolder the capacitor and solder a new one in. reassembly is reverse. Just be careful not to trap the micro swicth wires ( black) under the motor surround.

Sound like the motor has had it.
