Blades have stopped turning as the shaft appears to now be too tight?

SSBU1 model which I haven't used for the summer months and now seems to have almost seized up. I've tried cleaning it but it's not rusted as its stainless steel. What has happened?

I can manually turn the blades inside the glass pitcher and I can turn the piece on the top of the motor base into which the pitcher blade attachment fits.


One of the parts is not being driven properly. Either the clutch on the top of the motor is not really attached to the motor shaft OR the clutch on the bottom of the blade is not engaging with the motor clutch OR the blade clutch is not properly attached to the blade shaft. On some models if you put the rubber sealing ring in the wrong place between the beaker and the blade housing it is enough to lift the clutches apart. The rubber wing goes between the beaker and the blade housing, not between the blade housing and the blade retaining ring.

Blades on ninja blender won't spin, but motor seems to be working.


I don't have one, but inspect the shaft, it looks like there is a key on the shaft, then inspect the inside of the blade where it goes on top of the shaft, see if it looks like the shaft has spun out the blade and this is why it's not spinning.

Remove the blade and the container, then turn on and see if the shaft is spinning, it should be most are a direct drive.

So now if the shaft is spinning, that most likely means that the blade hole is broke where it sets on top of the shaft.

Look closely at the inside of the blade, you should see some type of damage like the groves are worn, I hate to see you buy one and it was the shaft that wore, but usually the blade will go first.

My blender won't blend. Everything turns but the blades.


I have no idea what might be turning, but likely you do not have the blades seated if the shafts don't turn... IF the shafts turn, the welds or swaging of the baldes to the shaft have probably come loose due to overloading.

Shaft does not turn still vibrates


Same happened on mine. It is a M100. I pulled off the blade and guard (screws off the opposite way to normal), lifted the black rubber seal on the shaft as far out of the way as I could and cleaned it out. I then put a little WD-40 down the shaft and waited a while and twisted the shaft a little with pliers to work in the WD-40. After a few minutes it ran and fairly quickly came up to full speed.

Oster 6700 Gasket O-ring leaks


Gasket is not the problem.
Square shaft that is pressed into the turning gear is not tight and allows leaking through the connection.
Only repair is to replace the assembly with the gear drive, blades, etc. and this will take care of the leak. The "O" ring gasket is fine and holds the liquids. However the leak is around the center of the shaft that goes through the bottom.

Gary

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,

John

Blades won't turn


If the problem is that the blades are jammed and you can't turn them manually, you can let it sit ( and dry out ) for a few days, or you can try adding some oil. I had the same problem and this worked. My problem now is that the blades don't reach to where the motor is turning, so even if they're not jammed the don't turn. If anyone knows and answer to this I'd appreciate it.
