Question about Oster 6854 14 Speed Blender
I bought the blender about a year ago and use it for crushing ice for smoothies and mixed drinks and I started to smell an electrical fire after using it each time. Then it started to get slower until now it wont even power on. I opened it up and there is no visible damage (melting, burning etc.) it looks as good as new inside. Any thoughts as to what could have gone wrong?
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.
