The blade barely moves and appears to be stuck with old debris/food. I want to try to take it apart to clear it. i think the switch and motor are ok


I have picked up plenty of these babies at flea markets in the past. Taking it all apart to clean is a last-resort . There are some Youtube guides, though not for exactly the same model, here (
How to open and repair Braun Hand Blender Part1 ,
How to repair Braun Hand Blender Part2 )

Sounds like the motor still moves things a bit, but you're wisely opting to not burn it out. :-)

Before you go that far, there are some intermediate things to consider. First of all, don't do anything with the blender plugged in! It can mess up fingers big time. No cutting corners here!

If the debris is external, soak it in soap and hot water, blade down, for a while, and remove what you can with a soft brush or washcloth, being careful with fingers around the blade. If the blade moves at all, grab, preferably with gloved fingers, or with a pair of pliers, and rotate the blade back and forth. If it goes a little bit and stops, don't force it, just go back the other direction as far as you can go. Hopefully after a few runs through the range of motion, it'll start moving further, and you can loosen it. Feel whether it seems to have friction, some specific spot where it binds, whether the resistance feels friction-y, or gummy. Be patient and see if working it by hand, maybe with help from a tool for grip, will loosen it up.

Also check the cord. If it's been wrapped around and around the blender for storage (no, I've NEVER done that, nope nope), over time it'll tend to get really twisty and prone to tangling on itself. it may also then get partially broken, particularly at the spot where the cord enters the body of the blender. You can carefully try wiggling sections of the cord while it's running. If things suddenly change RPMs a lot, then the cord needs to be replaced (which will lead you back to disassembly)

Trying to lube it is dodgy. This will be going into your food and drinks, and you really don't want it slowly depositing 3-in-1 oil or WD-40 back into your smoothies for the next month. If it comes to that, you'll need to take your original aim and try to disassemble it. Then you can make sure that any lube is only where it belongs.

You can find a bit more of a general discussion on disassembly (not specific to Braun) here (
How to Repair Hand Blenders DoItYourself com ) There is also a general 'Manual' for an MR-30 here (
Braun MR30 Hand Blender ) Which describes cleaning for another of the monolithic models that don't have blade assemblies that detach.

Good luck!

ELECTRICAL SMELL AND SOUNDS ROUGH


It sounds like you need to replace blade & bearing assembly in the beaker, change it before you wreck the motor.

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.

Blade won't spin


Check the blade with it off the base and make sure that it spins freely. Check the spindle on the base and see if it feels hard to turn. If the spindle turns too easy , then the connection inside the base is broken and needs replacing.

Connection between the motor and the blender unit (where the spinning takes place) - get extremely hot and blender does not seem to blend well. Motor works fine without the top - and the top seems to spin...


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.

When trying to blend things like frozen fruit or frozen yogurt with the Vitamix, the blade stops moving, but the motor continues running. Even if there's only enough frozen yogurt to cover the blades, it...


Frozen elements are generally not recommended for blenders of any brand. They may cause the blade assembly to stop moving completely, or to "bog down," and this may eventually damage the motor. It is recommended that frozen fruits and/or yogurt be thawed when possible before placing into a blender. If this is not a possibility for you, I would use a "pulse" or "chop ice" function to rapidly spin the blades for just a moment. This will chop the contents in smaller, more manageable parts. This should be done before adding other liquid ingredients.

The lid/blender blades is stuck on to the jar.


Apply vinegar to a rag and a couple of q-tips - use the rag for any exposed areas, and use the q-tips to let vinegar drop into the hard-to-reach areas. You tried everything else I would have suggested.

If all else fails, break any of the parts on this list an reorder them :-) :

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.
