Stopped working My blender simply stopped working after less than 2 years of only intermittent use. I don't detect any burning smell from the motor. Does it have a fuse that I can replace? Any other suggestions? Thanks

    My blender also just stopped working after less than two years. It just will not start at all. After pressing any of the buttons the blender is completely dead.

    I loved this blender. It was very powerful, although loud. But without warning, it just stopped working. I'd had it for just over two years. Built in dynamic obsolescence, I suppose. The company wants us to buy more, when the original breaks. Not me.

I had the same problem after only one month, took in back to walmart and they would do nothing. i love the big heavy glass jar on this model so i baught another on thinking i broke it some how and guess what, the second one stopped after one and a half months. called around and no one would do anything for me, company sucks, i took the bottom cover off the blender to expose the problem and there is a problem with the curcuit board and built in breaker. i ripped out all the speed buttons and curcuit board and just wired in a on/off switch to the motor. works great again. i still had a extra broken blender so i took a old chain saw i had and turned that one into a gas powered blender. problem solved, any questions please feel free to ask.

    This seems to be a problem for the brand. My cheap $16 BL2010 white model features the 550W motor. I did as straws indicates--I wired the motor directly to the A/C power cord (with the correct wiring polarity), after unscrewing the bottom (deep-set star-bit screws) and removing the switch. My motor is very good I think: The switch is complex and problematic, though. I simply leave the holes for the switch open--that aids cooling. (I try to prevent spilling into those holes--no major parts or wiring prove directly underneath, though. I imagine that one may take a 1" vinyl blind slat, cut it to size, and cement it over those holes.) Removing the switch and wiring directly leaves one with the highest speed. Invoking a true variable rotary switch likely proves possible: I put a nice rocker switch over my cord, instead. I feel that the switch perhaps is intended to fail over time.

I have a waring pro blender Model WF2111211 It's glass he blade part doesnt come off. motor runs fine but blade really tight won't spin so the motor smells burn out trying to get it to free.

Heat up a cup of water in microwave until boiling in a two cup Pyrex measuring cup. Add one more cup of tap water. Our it in the blender and let it soak. If it doesn't work, repeat but with less tap water.

My vita-mix just stopped working, there is slight burned smell, I was blending walnut pieces with dates paste. Any suggestions?

If the burning smells like plastic then the walnut shells most likely put too much strain on the motor and burned it out. If the burning does not smell like plastic then you most likely have walnut shell grit jamming your motor.

This can be cleaned out by first ENSURING IT IS UNPLUGGED FROM THE WALL.

  • First remove the canister (if possible)
  • The remove the blade (if possible) check for a build up of grit between the blade and the shaft connecting it to the motor.
  • Check the channel the shaft passes through from the motor for large chunks of walnut shells or date paste.
  • Clean the canister thoroughly with warm water and leave it to soak overnight in a water/soap mixture.
If this has not resolved the issue then try to claim it under warranty or source replacement parts online.

That burning smell is kind of a death sentence. At least a switch or more likely coils are burnt out.

Blender died while in use n hasnt worked ever since

As long as you know the plug still had power. Make sure it wasn't a GFI that was tripped. Something inside the unit must have either lost contact or burned up. Did you smell anything burning electrically?
