Question about Oster 6854 14 Speed Blender

Help me revive my dead Oster 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.

The plastic container is cloudy and there seams to be a slight odor, it's a little over one year old we used 5 days a week for smoothies.


Plastic will get cloudy given the fact that you will crush seeds from all the fruits you put in it and they will act like a very fine sandaper when you make your smoothies.

If you can visually see the rod, use a few drops of cooking oil. If it leaks into any drink, you wont get sick. Don't use mineral oils.

How to make a smoothie with my bamix handheld blender


That wonderful little stick is all you need, I sure love mine! Make sure your Mixing cup is larger than the one supplied and remember to pump up and down vigorously as you blend. Keep swirling the bottom to make sure everything got picked up and blended. You can also make powdered salt,(great for french fries) powdered sugar, Dried garlic can be made into your own freshest garlic powder (great for spaghetti and pizza). peanut butter, apple butter and Whipped cream. I also use mine to make a crazy Jello only treat that tastes like sherbet, ice cream and Jello just by blending Jello and Ice cubes. Then I chill right away after pouring it into small 3 inch glasses.

Cuisinart Quick Prep is not working properly


I think the ice was too hard for a hand blender. I think the impact has caused the blade to separate from the shaft or caused the shaft to separate internally. If your blender is still under warranty you might be able to get it fixed. Note: none of the "Smoothy" recipes in the manual call for ice. One uses ice-cream. One uses "partially thawed frozen strawberries" and one uses sherbet.
