Re: 5 speed ...steel

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,

Two buttons are stuck in on my kitchen aid blender.

I have been searching for an answer to this same problem. My chop and mix buttons were stuck and I was getting no power or blinking lights. After finding no help on-line, I decided to take it apart and fix myself. It was easy and it worked!
1. Take the bottom of the mixer off by removing the rubber foot pads and remove the exposed 4 screws.
2. Remove the 3 sets of wires that are attached to the inside panel with clips. Very easy to remove, just squeeze at the base of the clips and pull up.
3. Remove the 2 screws holding that panel in place and gently lift off.
4. Remove the panel found under the top panel by also removing 2 screws. When you flip this panel over you will see what operates the switches.
In my blender the black plastic nubs that push against the buttons that were stuck and got twisted off kilter so they were not resetting properly. I just put a small screwdriver in there to try and straighten them as much as possible. All of these steps will be obvious as you disassemble the blender.
5. Push on the back of the buttons that were stuck to get them unstuck before reassembling everything back together.
I was surprised how easy a fix this was and how obvious what the problem was when I opened the blender up. No soldering or fancy tools needed, just 5-10 minutes and a phillips head screwdriver!
Good luck!

Yes that is strange, if you let it cool down and try it again with pushing the re-set button and still does not work, try plugging it into a different outlet. Find something in your place that you know outlet is working, lamp, toaster you know. If does work in another out let, then you of course griped that breaker. Then check your breaker box to see what breaker is tripped, and switch it back on, might just of had a power surge based on putting on reverse. If that don't work, I suppose possibly something in motor or switch went out. Please let me know, if it works, I will take a banana smoothie LOL

Will not work

First ensure that the blender jar is placed on the right orientation, othherwise the blender wont start.
Remove the Jar and place it on the other way if you are not sure.

If you still get the click, try leaving the blender power cord unplugged for a while. The click means that the blender has power, but the motor is not starting.
If it still does not work , and the jar is in the correct way and you did the above, then the blender is faulty, probably a faulty motor, or a broken wiring.

Blender has lost top two speeds

With my blender, some of the buttons stopped working, and I found a simple way that fixed it like new, with no special skills or replacement of parts. To determine if this fix will work for you, unplug the blender and press on each button. As you do this feel and listen for a definite 'click'. If you here it for the buttons that are working, and not for those that aren't, you probably have the same problem.

I discovered that there is a tiny mechanical push button switch under each button. The switches are held snug to the bottom of each button by a thin metal bracket. If you have heavy fingers, the force of pressing the buttons over time, causes the bracket to deform, moving the switches further and further away from the buttons until, eventually, no matter how hard you press, they are no longer close enough to depress the switches underneath.

The solution is to simply open the blender (with the power cord removed) and gently push the button assembly back towards the buttons. To get inside you need to pull out each of the four rubber feet, and unscrew the phillips head screws that are hidden under them. Next, seperate the top and bottom sections by gently pulling the power cord through the strain-relief (don't worry, it goes back together very easily). Before putting it back together, check the buttons (always with the power cored unplugged !!!) for the 'click'. If this doesn't work, you may have to take out the two screws that fasten the bracket to the blender, and bend the bracket hold-down tabs with a plier, in the opposite direction of the switches (that way when you put the screws back in, they'll move towards the buttons. That's it.

Hope this helps someone like me save about $150.00 for a new one and keep another 10lbs. of junk out of the landfill.

Waring Pro MBB Blender- blade too tight

I was just able to fix mine. You'll need the following: two wrenches (almost any type), steel wool, and vegetable oil.

1. Clamp the hexagonal nut inside the bottom of the pitcher with one wrench and place the jaws of the other wrench between the "spokes" of the wheel at the outside bottom of the pitcher.
2. Turn either counter-clockwise until the hex nut comes off. At this point, you should be able to pull the bottom piece out from the bottom. Pay attention to the order and orientation of the parts inside the pitcher as they may fall out now.
3. Dry off the shaft and rub it with some ordinary steel wool (think SOS pads).
4. Twist a small amount of the steel wool and run it back and forth through the hole the shaft goes through.
5. Wipe both clean with a clean cloth or napkin.
6. Rub a little vegetable oil on the shaft.
7. Place the shaft back in the hole and test the movement. It should be like new again.
8. Reassemble the blender.

Hope this helps,
