most blenders throttle the power by using different taps inside the motor winding themselfs ., the switch just selects what tap to use and applies power to that winding , just three windings can produce multi speeds if used in combinations sorry no easy fix for switchs other than to make sure theres no food down inside them , i use a good electrical contact spray (CRC) down in them to make sure
You can get a new plug from any hardware store and replace the plug you have . 2 prong or 3 prong to match the original, cut the wire back just enough to get away from the frayed part ,.. when connecting the wire , curl the bare end of the wire around the screw in the direction of tightening the screw, clockwise .
There is a 10 Amp thermal fuse (SF129E) that is supposed to create an open circuit when the motor windings exceed 133 C degrees. Although this fuse should close again when the motor cools down it can become perminantly damaged. Locate the fuse by following the black leads from the coltrol board to the motor brushes. It's inside a cloth insulating sheath secured against the windings with a metal strap and two ty-raps. I bypassed the fuse with a wire instead of replacing it. It would probably just blow again sooner or later. p.s. you need a T10 Torx screw driver to disassemble (screws under rubber feet) $3 at ACE hardware.
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!
My IKON 600 Blender fuse had blown. It was located on the circuit board and can be found by removing the bottom of the blender. Fuse is Fast Blow 10A, metric 5mmx20mm. The fuse blew because the bearing in the bse of the jar froze. Bearing # 608-RS. The beraring froze because the seal in the base of the jar was leaking. Solution: Clean seak surfaces, replace bearing and fuse. Total cost of $6 with my labor.
I worked for sunbeam and they were 10amps there.
dont go to high because u start a fire ..also while you replace it look for darker or blacking field wires..all wires should look good.
but hard to start a fire when u got your finger close to off the button at most it will do is slow down and stop ...smoke...time for new blender then.
