Making a high pitched noise while blending; is motor breaking down?

there are some Breville Blender troubleshooting tips here . Tied in with that, a high pitched noise could come in from a few directions:

Some blenders will use reduction gears to get more torque and power out of a high RPM, lower power motor. If this is the case, the whine could be from the motor, though if you hadn't noticed before, that would not be reassuring.

Per the troubleshooting, check that the blade is firmly attached, and that the coupling from jug to base is firm. If there are gaps or loos spots, there can be buzzing or whining between sort-of-spinning parts and shafts or bolt threads.

Check the motor base for dried spilled-on margarita mix or marinara sauce or what have you. they try to seal this pretty tight in a blender, but it has to spin, so food spills can get in the gap and cause friction and resistance, which can in turn cause whining noises from parts not expecting the load. If you do any cleaning or poking there, make sure you unplug the blender first. Shocks are not fun.

likewise, make sure that blade rotates easily from turning the coupling on the outside of the jug. If not, the bearing may be siezed or contaminated. That you'd likely want to fix by replacement.

Hope this helps!

Why doesn't blade spin?

Either the coupling from the motor with the fingers on it is not really attached to the motor shaft or the drive on the blade that engages with it is not attached to the blade shaft. One other thing is that on some models if the rubber jar seal between the beaker and the blade carrier is in the wrong place it can raise the blade drive to not engaging properly with the motor coupling. The gasket goes between the jar and the blade carrier, not under the blade carrier.

The black weel on top of the blender base that propel the blade in the bottom of the jug must be preplaced , where can I found one in south Africa?

Henzee, the part you are looking for is called the KitchenAid blender drive coupling. It is the little black rubber piece ontop of the motor base that looks like a crown with six teeth on top. The motor spins this piece which them spins the blades. It is a very common replacement part for the KSB5 blenders made by KitchenAid.

The part number you are looking for is 9704230, i am not aware of any places in Africa that sell the part but you can probably find someone in the USA that can ship it to Africa.

Here is a link to the video we have on changing the part out:

I have had my Cuisinart SmartPower blender for about 10 years now and it has worked great. Recently there has been a black dust/stain/residue that is on the underside of the bottom collar/blade and on the...

At 10 years you are heading to replace it. With the blender bowl removed, try turning the connector the goes to the blades. Then do the same with the connector on the base. Whichever one doesn't turn easily is the one that is failing. Usually there is corrosion in the spindle of the jug and this causes tightness which in turn causes the connectors to shred. The tightness cause friction, which makes the plastic parts get hot. The blade should spin easily, the connector on the motor, not quite so easy. On some blenders you can switch the base on with out the jug being on it. Run it for 30 seconds and then switch off. If it stop dead, then problem is with the base and the spindle that goes to the motor. In a catering environment, I had a Hamilton Beach, shatter the base connector after 2 years. With blenders, you get what you pay for, Cuisinart aren't bad, but there are better makes if you use them a lot.

I have been given a Kenwood BL300 blender. After using it to make breadcrumbs, I undid it somehow and now I can't get it back together. Can't remember if the blade goes straight into the base or the jug,...

You need to unfasten the white base from the clear jug, then the rotating blade will sit inside the white base, with the blade facing upwards. The white rubber flange goes in next. Then screw the assembled base back into the clear jug. The jug should then fit on to the stand.

Motor base is working and container jar base turns by hand but won't work together to spin blades

Just fixed my blender. Motor was working fine, but the bladea wouldn't turn. I removed the blade piece from the base and tried moving the blades by hand and they wouldn't turn. So, I lubricated the blade at the location where it's supposed to rotate. I kept trying to move the blades by hand and gradually they started to loosen up. All fixed!!! I guess they get stuck after a few years of use.

Broken glass jug on kitchenaid blender model 5ksb2aer4

Look at the underside of the blade shaft. The metal wing nut on the end of the shaft secures the blade assembly to cream coloured plastic blade base. The wing nut also transmits the drive from the rubber coupling on your blender to the blade shaft. The wing nut has a LEFT HAND thread.
The left hand thread ensures the blade assembly does not unscrew during normal blender use.

Firstly disassemble the blender blade assembly. Place a folded tea towel over the blades and hold the blades firmly. If you do not use a tea towel you may cut yourself.

Grip the wing nut with your other hand and unscrew it CLOCKWISE.
Remove the wing nut. You can now remove the blade from the plastic base.

Put the blade assembly in the new jug and offer up the plastic base from under the jug so that the blade shaft protudes enough for you to install the wing nut.

Screw the wing nut ANTI-CLOCKWISE to secure the blades to the plastic base.

Do not over tighten the wing nut; you may have to replace your jug again at some point.

Kitchen Aid Blender - blade not rotating

You will definitely need to change the clutch blade i.e. the black rubber rotating bit. Chaging it on the base unit may be difficult, I would check with your local Kitcheaid repairer for spare parts and repair advice.

Also check the clutch blade on the jug itself.

Cuisinart CBT-500 blender won't work

(0) unplug unit (1) Remove the bottom 4 screws, cover plate and motor shield ( 2) unhook the white motor wire from its binding clip ( 3) locate the plastic sleeve with the fuseable link (4) cut the sleeve and test for continuity between points on either side of link with ohmmeter (5) if no continuity, clip out fuseable link and and solder the white wire back together (6) cover with tape (7) rebind to other wires (8) replace bottom and check. This worked for me.
