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

I have a Cuisinart Smartpower electronic blender, model #SPB-7CH(TX5). When I push the on button, the light blinks. When I push a speed button, it also blinks, but the blender does not turn on. Any suggestions?

    After spending way too much time on hold, I finally found out that, since the warranty had run out, my options were; A: Pay $50 plus shipping both way for Cuisinart to "look" at the blender and see if they could fix it, then pay repair costs; B: Throw the stupid thing away and buy a new one (which I did). Good luck to you!

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.

I have the same problem. The panel lights work but the motor does not turn.
The machine is less than 6 months old. Can this be fixed under warranty?

No need to buy anything. The SPB-7 has a thermal fuse to protect the motor in case you overwork it. Per the user's manual, unplug, wait 15 minutes and try again. It worked for me!

    How do you get the motor off the base so you can find the thermal fuse? Where is the thermal fuse?

Cuisinart model # SPB-6 (tx) leaking when unit is together, seal is in place, still leaking. Unit is not damaged, please advise.


Check if leaking at the bearing for the blade.

If the bearing has worn, dis-assemble and coat shaft with food-safe grease and re-assemble. Also coat the seals with the grease.

There is probably a hairline fracture or tiny crack in the blade assembly itself - replace the blade assembly - it will automatically come with a gasket, so you will have an extra.

Cusinert blender


I had the same problem and I manaed to fix my Cuisinart SmartPower Duet blender. There are two thermal fuses, one tape attached to each stator winding. Both of mine were blown.

In addition, when the fuses blew, it must have spiked the triac. I had to replace mine. It's the black 3-legged transistor looking device with a small metal heatsink attached to it. This gizmo directly throttles the power to the motor under control of the microprocessor. There are some guides on the internet on how to test it.

Also, the clutch was very hard to remove and needs to be removed to more easily replace the thermal fuses. I clamped down the end of the motor shaft to a bench vise real hard and then I used a 7/8-inch open-end wrench to wedge into the clutch prongs which made it much easier to apply torque. Remember that its screw threads are reversed from normal screws so that it does not unscrew during operation. You have to turn it counter-clockwise to unthread it.

Hope that helps!

Cusinert blender


you most likely have blown the thermal fuse. I just fixed my blender which had the same problem but only after I bought a another base:< If you are a handy person, it is a very simple fix. buy a 10 amp thermal fuse from "RadioShack" for $1.69. Sadly, it is cheaper to buy a new blender than have it fixed at a repair shop.

Cuisinart sealing gasket


The gasket goes between the cutting assembly and the glass. So you slip it on over the top of the blades and then put the glass jar over top of that. Screw the bottom cap on to tighten everything together.
