I would suspect a motor fault, most likely an insulation problem in the armature or the fields. Contact Vitamix for your local authorised service agent. Unless it has been assembled incorrectly it should not be one of the internal wires as they are supposed to be secured and correctly routed during assembly.

Smoothie pro 600 manual


It means it's working very hard,
I suggest to put items that are thick in first and blend them then add the other ingredients after , the smell is the coating on the motor getting hot , if you see smoke coming out, drink your smoothie wash it out and take it back for a new one.

How to make a smoothie with my bamix handheld blender


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.

Cuisinart Quick Prep is not working properly


I think the ice was too hard for a hand blender. I think the impact has caused the blade to separate from the shaft or caused the shaft to separate internally. If your blender is still under warranty you might be able to get it fixed. Note: none of the "Smoothy" recipes in the manual call for ice. One uses ice-cream. One uses "partially thawed frozen strawberries" and one uses sherbet.

My jugs are leaking too at the bottom. If anybody finds the replacement jugs somewhere please let me know. I have a double smoothie maker model 5787. Thanks! email me at javstarz@hotmail.com


My blender would do that if I didn't screw the jar on firmly enough. Sometimes the action of the blades will even loosen the bottom from the jar during blending, so I always hold the jar handle while the blending is going on. That way if it starts to undo, I can twist it back tight. Before I learned that trick I had smoothies leaking out the bottom - what a mess! Also make sure you put the gasket/seal on in the right order. If it's in the wrong place it won't seal correctly.

I have the tsk-9368ap blender model. Before I blend, I lock the blade in place on the bottom, while I am blending the blade comes loose, and whatever I am blending starts coming out of the bottom, I'm not...


kalexis - there is no such thing as support for the Durabrand TSK-9368AP - Wal-Mart decided that the products were so cheap that people would buy a new one if it broke. What I would do is take your blender into an Ace or True Value Hardware store, and have someone find a generic gasket that will fit your blender.

Help me revive my dead Oster blender


Check the motor brushes. They may be worn out. Also, since the 1980s, many electric motors have a thermal fuse in them. This unit "blows" when it gets to a certain temperature.

This fuse looks like a 22-caliber bullet and its pointed end is usually colored. If you have an ohmmeter or continuity checker, see if current will pass through the fuse. If not, you can try to replace it. Most times, the fuse is attached with crimp-on connectors. Replacements can be soldered in, if you put a clip-on heat sink between the fuse body and the soldering iron.
