Check the dryer dual-breakers in the house electrical panel--push off, then on. If no help, check for ~230 volts AC at the two slanted slots in the dryer power socket. If ok, the problem is likely the heating element(s) in back of the drum are burned out or the internal thermostat is open. To remove the drum, remove the top (push a thin putty knife rearward at each front corner to release latches) and then the front panel. The belt must be released (from inside the lower back) and the rear center screws of the drum removed. When the drum is removed, it gives access to the elements and temp control switches. Be sure to vacuum out all air passages and wash the lint filter in hot water and detergent to remove fabric softener deposits. Don't forget the air exit hose to the outside. Replace the belt on reassembly if heat damaged or badly worn. Hope this helps!

Sounds to me like you are overworking the machine. Get some advise from Kitchen Aid themselves, find a helpline and phone it.

Want to make dried date shake in vitamix. recipe is 20 pitted dates, 1 cup milk do I need to soak dates first?


Dry or hydrated, I have done both ways. I really didn't notice a difference? The vitamix just beats it up so good, I don't think it matters? But that is my opinion.

Aren't they good though? : )

The jar of the ge single serve blender got struck. How to fix it


Most likely the problem is caused because the base is not screwed all the way on to the jar. This could be from just not turning it on all the way or it could loosen while running. Make sure the base is tightly closed before putting is into the power unit. To remove it you can lubricate the tabs with some vegetable oil and then force it. GE service suggested that. I have heard of two people joining forces to get it off without apparently damaging it but no guaranty's. If you have the reciept it should have a two year warranty, at least mine does.

Was blending this morning and all the sudden the blade stopped spinning. all of the lights work, and I've tried putting it on "pulse" mode, but nothing can get it spinning again. any ideas?


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. etc. It really makes me wonder how it got past UL approval.

I have a Bamix Immersion Blender, but it stopped working. Press it on and it makes a humming sound but does not move. Where (in Canada) can it be repaired or replaced?


Sounds like the motor shaft has broken from the impeller. If I had it I would crack the case and see if that were true.(You might see screws holding the case together- If not, they might be hidden under the cosmetic label. If it is true, you need factory help. You better call Customer Service for Bamix.
THis is from http://www.bamix-usa.com/:
The drive shaft is frozen i.e. no longer rotates although the motor still hums: place the operative part of the appliance for 5 to 10 minutes in a jug of hot water, then switch it on. In general the appliance will then work again - if not just try to free the shaft very carefully with pliers

It can happen that the attachments fall off the shaft as they have in time become loose. In this case simply press the spring blades lightly together with a pair of pliers Processor/Dry Grinder: Discoloration of the bowl (i.e. carrots) can be cleaned with a cloth impregnated with salad oil.

Spillage onto base of blender!


Usually leakage into the base can compromise the motor's performace. Since it sounds like this also has digital displays, you don't want to risk messing it up even more by turning it on. The company should have service places you can take it into to get checked out, some might even do an estimate for free. I would call the company and see if that's possible and maybe just a quick cleaning can fix it.
