Question about Back to Basics Signature Smoothie Maker

1 Answer

I have a B to B 'Smoothie Signature' with a leaking and loose fitting shaft bearing. Can I get it apart and replace or tighten something, or do I need the entire container base?

This models motor base has a rotary switch, not push-buttons.

Here is a link to all of the replacement parts available for a smoothie signature: http://westbend.com/support/replacement-parts/smoothie-makers/sa5red-smoothie-maker-signature.html

I am not sure what you mean by shaft bearing, but if it is not on this list, it is not available.

My blender leaks while I am making smoothie


Check to be sure your rubber gasket is clean and in the proper place which should be between the jug and the blade asembly. Also I have seen leaking when the assembly was tightened too much.

If you still have your receipt etc you may be able to exchange the unit where you purchased it. Alternatively contact the manufacturer and see if they can replace under warrenty

Smoothie maker 600


Check to see if the jar has any cracks or if the blade assembly or collar have any cracks.
Is it possibly leaking from the tap valve?
If the blades or tap lever are cracked I would recommend replacing them, however if the jar is cracked i would just buy a new blender. These are great for smoothies but they are all discontinued and parts wont be available for much longer.
