Blinking lights on KitchenAid blender

After sitting in storage for 2 years, I turned on my KitchenAid blender - red on light blinks as usual, but when I go to press one of the settings - the green lights blink in sequence and nothing works. Does it need service?

    Same problem. Cycling green lights and blinking red, but no action, even with different electrical outlets. Blades and motor are not frozen.

    Inside the wand of the blender and above the blade is a green plastic disk that has dropped down. How do I replace it?

1 Answer

Alternating blinking lights on a Kitchenaid blender indicate a bad circuit board which is unable to run the motor properly. Unplug the blender, take the jar off, and turn the spindle by hand. Then plug it back in. If it does not work properly, try a different outlet (perhaps not in the kitchen). If nothing works, the blender needs to be repaired.

This will probably need either a new thermal fuse on the field windings or a new motor.

All lights blinking on my blender

When the lights are flashing, this does indicate that an electronic part has failed. This blender is no longer manufactured, so finding replacement parts for it may not come easily. Repair centers are available.

This error was probably not caused by replacing the coupler, but merely coincidence.

You may find a Kitchenaid certified service location using the following link:

If this is not helpful, I would recommend calling Kitchenaid Customer Service to see what they can recommend for you.

Their toll-free number is 1-800-541-6390.

Blender won't work

This indicates an internal problem with the blender itself as pertaining to the motor. I would suggest contacting Kitchenaid Customer Service to see about having the blender repaired or possibly replaced.

Their toll-free phone number is 1-800-541-6390.
