Blade not turning

After not using my blender for quite awhile, I pulled it out the other day and found that it wasn't working properly. When correctly assembled, the blade is not turning. When I disassemble and check the power without the blade/pitcher on it, the motor works just fine and the piece at the bottom spins. However, when I reassemble the unit, I can hear the motor running and see the blade slightly START to turn, but that's all. When I checked the piece on the bottom side of the blade attachment, it seemed a little hard to turn, so I used some vegetable oil to lubricate it. That did make the blade turn easier, but it didn't cause it to turn when the unit is assembled. Any suggestions? I feel like I'm soooooo close...

    My blender has actually received very little use and is in "like new" condition -- except for this problem. Let me be a little more specific: on the blade attachment piece, the underside turns freely AND the top blade side turns freely. The problem is that when one is turned manually, the other doesn't turn with it. How do I get them to both turn together?

    the motor turns on. the blades don't turn. I was able to hand turn them. Then, it would run. Now, they are not turning

I am looking at the same problem, the aluminum bottom part (on blade assembly) that contacts the black rubber on the motor part is no longer "attached" to shaft that drives the blade on top side. So like said the top and bottom "turn freely" but independent of each other.... not good, they should be one piece. Ebay does not have a replacement for this original part in my case and would have to buy a complete jar assembly. I will attempt to fix the original one by cutting a slot through aluminum and center shaft and dropping in a pin to make them turn together, with a spot of weld to hold pin to shaft... not sure how long this will last.... unless somene has a better idea to fix it?

The top rubber piece could be worn enough that it is not engaging the pitcher. look at it carefully and see if the "teeth" of the rubber disc on top of the base has not cracked and worn away. a picture of the new one can be seen on the parts websites to compare I spent $10.00 for my replacement but i found them at other sites for $6.00. you will need a very skinny 7mm open ended wrench to get the old one off and it is left handed threads that means clockwise will loosen not tighten the part.i ground down my wrench but an ignition wrench from an auto store will usually be thin enough to reach the flats on the shaft under the rubber disc

When i turn it onto high speed it willl fuse istanlty. (Even with somthing easy to blend like a smoothie) .Any ideas what could be wrong?


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.

The power light on the Ninja Blender flashes and will not turn on.


Make sure the pitcher lid is assembled properly aligning the arrow on the lid with the arrow on the handle. Press down firmly on the handle until you hear a slight click to ensure it is fully engaged. The Ninja will not run if the lid is not assembled correctly & the handle is not fully engaged.

Unfortunately Kitchenaid's design on those blenders is a one piece unit, over time the seals wear out and you have to replace the entire jar assembly, they usually run 40-50 dollars and can be found from several vendors.

Here is a link to the replacement jar on our site: KitchenAid Blade Jar Assembly W10555711

I have had my Cuisinart SmartPower blender for about 10 years now and it has worked great. Recently there has been a black dust/stain/residue that is on the underside of the bottom collar/blade and on the...


At 10 years you are heading to replace it. With the blender bowl removed, try turning the connector the goes to the blades. Then do the same with the connector on the base. Whichever one doesn't turn easily is the one that is failing. Usually there is corrosion in the spindle of the jug and this causes tightness which in turn causes the connectors to shred. The tightness cause friction, which makes the plastic parts get hot. The blade should spin easily, the connector on the motor, not quite so easy. On some blenders you can switch the base on with out the jug being on it. Run it for 30 seconds and then switch off. If it stop dead, then problem is with the base and the spindle that goes to the motor. In a catering environment, I had a Hamilton Beach, shatter the base connector after 2 years. With blenders, you get what you pay for, Cuisinart aren't bad, but there are better makes if you use them a lot.

Where can I get replacement blade unit for Farberware/Salton blender model FBL500SS??


Available replacement parts for your blender are normally available online at the following site:

http://www.directpartsandproducts.com/blenders-fbl500ss-c-61_171_884_885_888.html

Unfortunately I do not see that a blade unit is available. I would recommend you contact this supplier directly to inquire whether a compatible blade is available.

Contact information can be found here:

Trust this is helpful. Thank you for using FixYa!
