My kitchenaid blender won't work. Lights for all the settings come on but motor won't start


I expect you will find that the motor is open circuit. There is a thermal fuse incorporated into one of the field windings which can be replaced with a bit of messing about. A job for a retired appliance service person if you want to keep the price down. Did one today, took about an hour from start to finish.

I have a waring xtreme commercial blender that has just stopped on me. Does it have a reset button anywhere and if so how do I get to it.


the thermal fuse has failed
most commercial blenders have a thermal fuse built into the windings of the drive motor or its internal transformer for low voltage supply to the controller board if it has one
perhaps it overheated

My cuisinart blender doesn't work. We've only used it about 4 times. It worked yesterday, and today it lights up but doesn't do anything. Not sure why


Pretty much that is what happened to me. I found that the motor has 2 "thermal cut-offs" (SEFUSE 113oC). If the motor heats up even a little, these babies kill your blender. They are thermal fuses. Once they blow, it is over until they are replaced. To fix this, the motor must be removed. The spline gismo on top of the blender unscrews with reversed threads. I suggest unsoldering the lead wires from the power supply board, and replacing when done. The cut-offs are inside the taped on white cloth insulation on the top of the field magnets near the brush assemblies on both sides. I replaced them (both were blown) with 2 of NTE8242 ($1.60 each, 240oC 15A). These are way too hot, but that is what I had on hand. I thought that the electronics were defective at first, and I replaced the entire board assembly with a small/cheap ceiling fan wall switch /speed controller from the hardware store (600W 5A) for $10. The root cause of all of this is that the motor fan is not working. The airflow is blocked by base. I put small extenders on the feet and now there is much more airflow. Only time will tell if this is an effective fix. It appears to me that the device my have started out "nice" when it was designed, but cheapened (probably by middle managers taking bonuses for "improving" the design) many times. The fuse is gone, the case is plastic, etc. It really makes me wonder how it got past UL approval.

After starting the microwave, I get a "F-7" message on the display and it shuts down. What can I do to fix this? This is a whirlpool model # GH5184XPS-4.


hello,

what this error means indicate is as follow

The F-7 error code indicates that the water or oil (any liquid form) temperature sensor reading is out of range (below 23 degrees F or above 217 degrees F).

what you need to do to fix up your is to do general cleaning up on your oven both internal and external do this with care and allow it to dry up it self.

please when doing this you will have to put off any form of power supply connected to the oven .

thank you and thanks for using fixya.

Cuisinart BFP-703CH Chrome Blender does not start


I had the exact same problem with my Cuisinart bfp-703ch blender. When I plug it in, the lights come on but the motor wouldn't run. After reading some posts I almost decided to throw it away. But my brain started to itch and I gave it a shot anyway. I eventually found the problem to be with the Thermal fuse. If you overload/overheat the blender, this fuse is going to blow off.
To replace it, I opened the bottom panel and followed the wires that come from the circuit. Once of those wires eventually will lead to the thermal fuse. It may help you if you unscrew the circuit board. Then I detached the fuse with pliers, got a replacement thermal fuse from Radioshack and connected it back on. I also had to solder it to make sure the connection is more robust. And Voila!!! my motor started working again.

Cusinert blender


you most likely have blown the thermal fuse. I just fixed my blender which had the same problem but only after I bought a another base:< If you are a handy person, it is a very simple fix. buy a 10 amp thermal fuse from "RadioShack" for $1.69. Sadly, it is cheaper to buy a new blender than have it fixed at a repair shop.
