    I bought my blender brand new didn't use it for a month and threw away the box and the manual. I realized later that when i went to make a margarita it wouldn't start. I tried unplugging and restarting it. checked to see if it was the lock on the handle. that could be the problem but i don't know if i'm doing it right. any tips?

There's a safety lock built into the handle of the jug. If the jug cover doesn't key into the lock properly, the motor base won't start.

Old blenders used to be able to start without putting the jug in place at all. I think this helps you know when the jug is in place properly.

It's indicated on the carton box; somehow I can't find my manual.

Cheers!

I know this is an old tread but this might help others. On the 3902 blender, pull the rubber feet off and remove the 4 screws. Pull the bottom black plastic off. Un-snap the black plastic piece housing the control arm that varies the speed. You will see a PC board with one screw in it. Remove the screw pull the PC board. There will probably be an un-soldered solder joint at the transistor component. It will do no good to resolder it as it will just melt off again. It is best to run a heavy wire directly to the lead of the transistor (on the top side of the board) the other end of the wire to the widest part of the foil trace on the back of the board. You will have to scrape the green paint off to expose the silver trace for soldering. I used an electric eraser but a knife blade works too just don't cut through the trace. 22 gauge wire or larger will work. This is so much easier as it sounds as long as you can solder. The large wire will not get hot enough to melt the solder. By the way I know its not a transistor, but it looks like one, it is some kind of gate controlled diode

    Make sure you solder to the same trace that had the missing solder joint.

Why won't the blades turn?


One or both of the drivers are broken, check the clutch on the top of the motor and the other one on the bottom of the beaker. You will find something there worn out or broken.

My Blender has overheated. What happens now?


Good evening there
Blenders can be tricky, they overheat or will not start.
What is worth noticing and try to do is to be careful that all "marks" on the base,the screw thing, the glass and the top are all in line.
If the blender does not start after you have done this try to move the blender one "hack" to the left. Mine usually obeys to these manouvers.

Broken blade housing


I have the whole blender. White with a red glass pitcher. I have only used it twice. For ice. What would you pay for the whole blender? You would then have a back up of it all. Works fine. Just too heavy for me.

Cup is stuck to the base since Tuesday, now Friday. Have tried everything I know to loosen it


I had the same problem. Put the entire thing in the refrigerator for 24 hours so the plastic can shrink back down to the right size. Basically it got overheated and the plastic cup expanded. That's what the service people told me to do, and I'm in the process of trying that out! Hope it works, and good luck!

My kitchenaid blender does not whizz around when it is put together> the couplking spins when the glass part is off that is, when it has nothing on it> the coupling does not look used or...


There are really only two reasons why the blades won't spin, either the coupler is broken, or the blade unit is damaged. Check the picture of the blade unit here: Check pictures of the coupler here: Hopefully it should be obvious whether the coupler is ok, if it is, are both wings on the wingnut under the blade unit?
