Question about KitchenAid KSB5 Professional Stainless Steel Work Top Blender

1 Answer

Blender performes poorly, if at all

Won't blend products at all, unless totally a liquid to start off. ie: cauliflour is placed into the blender, in a cooked state. The blender will work at all speeds including puree, but the cauliflour hangs up inside the blender's stainless bin, and even after stopping blender and forcing down the food into the blades, and starting again, it won't blend. It is terrible in blending and don't know why. could the blades be incorrectly angled? what would possibly cuase this

    The blender does not blend. The blades don't reach to the bottom of the pitcher so chunks wedge down on the bottom never getting near the blades.

    Did not receive a manual with the product. Would like to know if there is a manual.

Waring blender shoots food out the top

Are you blending something hot? When you blend a hot item the steam that is released will increase the pressure in the headspace above the contents in the blender. The lid will eventually blow off to release the pressure.

To avoid this problem begin blending with no more that one cup of ingredients. Before turning the blender on, remove the center lid insert to allow venting of steam. Blend on low speed. As you blend you can add another 1 1/2 cups of additional liquid through the opening in the lid.

Trust this method will resolve your problem.

The coleman rechargable blender not blending

Subject: Rechargeable Portable Blender Model No. 850-870

I was given one of these blenders for Christmas. I charged it through 3
cycles, used it once and the battery was dead. Charged it through another 5
charge cycles and used it once only to then have another dead battery. I
have put it through at least another 8 charge cycles, and it indicates a
DEAD battery. I have managed to blend two (2) 3/4 full pitchers in total. On
trying to start it now the green light 'flickers' quickly on and shuts down.

This is a totally useless device.

I would like to return it for a full refund, including shipping.

Poor function of my Oster classic blender

Yeah, the blades probably need to be replaced. The replacement blade assemblies for most models can be ordered directly from Oster - their phone # is 1-800-334-0759 - you have to go through an elaborate menu tree to get to the right place.

Blendtec blender jug split

I wouldn't fix the jar, just buy a new one. A crack, though rare, could possibly harbor bacteria. You could try using heat and melting it, but it wouldn't work as well. Your jar may still be under warranty, call Blendtec at 801-222-0888

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.
