    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.

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.

Go to the manufacturer website and maybe you can have or get warranty repair. It could also still be under warranty.

I have a breville kinetic blender - not used for a while. Gives a nasty burning smell when used. Anything I can do?


Unless it is food stuck around the blender bottom , you have parts burning up inside. Its not safe to use. Check to make sure it is clean top an bottom if smell returns stop using. Could burn house down.

Need replacement jar for model #14074 purchased 2003


If it cannot be purchased right from the maufacturer (which it likely won't as it is 11 years old), you can get nice blenders for around $20 at super stores like Walmart that work well and last for a while.

You're blending at a high speed and air is getting introduced. Try a slow blend speed. This should solve your issue.

Breville blender won't turn on. The on light is flashing red instead of solid blue. Worked fine a few days ago.


FIXED IT - It's the screws on the bottom of the jar assembly, where the blades are attached. There are 4 Torx screws - star-shaped - and when these come loose over time the Blender will start to operate only sometimes. Eventually it will be never.
Tighten these four screws and everything will be fine!

I need to replace frayed wire


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 .
