If blender blades are realy turn to slow in most cases the armature of the motor can having a few bad collectors where the carbon brushes can be to short but have been warned of the risc to order new carbon brushes that they can be becomes as short as the old ones in a real very short time, so make a ohm measure of the armature collectors over the carbon brushes if there is a thermal closure in the anchor(armature), in most case you can smell the problem or hear it and sometimes feel it because the motor becomes hotter then normally that its no longer has the right speed anymore.
Replace the blender is most times marketing technical an better option then repair it. but its in priority depend most on the brand and price.
Hi, Disassemble the base from the jar, and check the placement of the gasket. Reassembly, with the jar upside down is gasket, blades, then base. While disassembled, rotate the blades by hand just to make sure that they aren't in a bind. Replace if defective.
What you need to do is turn them by hand each time you use it, before you put your food in. Sugars and other deposits are often left around the blade assembly when you mix smoothies and stuff. Often this sugar is difficult to clean. Turn them by hand first to break the sugar molecules, then when you are done I would add 2 inches of water and a drop of soap. Run it for about 20 seconds and rinse. That should help the next time you use it. It also helps to use it daily. It keeps the molecules from hardening.
That wonderful little stick is all you need, I sure love mine! Make sure your Mixing cup is larger than the one supplied and remember to pump up and down vigorously as you blend. Keep swirling the bottom to make sure everything got picked up and blended. You can also make powdered salt,(great for french fries) powdered sugar, Dried garlic can be made into your own freshest garlic powder (great for spaghetti and pizza). peanut butter, apple butter and Whipped cream. I also use mine to make a crazy Jello only treat that tastes like sherbet, ice cream and Jello just by blending Jello and Ice cubes. Then I chill right away after pouring it into small 3 inch glasses.
Replace the blade assembly immediately. They are available from Cuisinart's website. Sugars and other stuff can gum up the blade assembly over time, so it will periodically need to be replaced. A quick and easy way to keep the blade assembly clean and working longer is to put water and a drop of dishwashing soap in the blender after use and run the blender at low speed for 15-20 seconds - an old Osterizer trick.
Mine does this as well... 5 seconds of operation and then OFF.
My guess is this is a fail safe where the blender is turning itself off to avoid overheating and what could potentially cause this overheating is the blender is struggling to turn the blades. What could cause this struggling of turning the blades I am guessing is a lack of oil in the blades rotating parts.
If you hold the circular blade part and turn it, you'll probably find that its hard to turn? Mine is... and I oiled it up a bit and found I got a bit more usage out of it... although only temporarily.
Ideally I need to pull it apart and oil it properly.
