Question about Oster 4134 / 4126 Classic Beehive Work Top Blender

1 Answer

My rarely used Sunbeam Blender Model #4181 stopped working

I was using my blender (for the second or third time EVER) and it just stopped working. I noticed a little smoke just before that happened, so I turned it off, waited until it cooledOFF, and tried again. It worked for just a second or two then it just stopped!! Did I permanently burn the thing? Is there anything I can do to check if it is repairable before I "toss" it?

It sounds like one of a number of things...

* The contacts in the switches fried
* The motor itself fried
* The controller section fried

If you saw smoke, something fried... probably cheaper to simply replace the unit. Even if it still worked, it's a 120V electric appliance used with liquids, and I wouldn't trust it... I'd hate to hear that your blender started a kitchen fire.

Where can I find a gasket for Sunbeam 2774 blender???


If you cannot find one, well in the "Old" days we used to make gaskets out of Thick Brown Paper Bags. Using the OLD gasket as a template simply trace around it & cut it out. Lightly Oil it and use it as normal. Usually works great, sometimes you need two, to get the thickness.

The motor has burned out. Check with the manufacturer about warranty status for the blender or exchange it.

Received the Breville Ikon 600 blender as a Christmas present in 2006 and have used it 3 times, with the third time being this past weekend. The product is now out of warranty and low and behold, it...


My IKON 600 Blender fuse had blown. It was located on the circuit board and can be found by removing the bottom of the blender. Fuse is Fast Blow 10A, metric 5mmx20mm. The fuse blew because the bearing in the bse of the jar froze. Bearing # 608-RS. The beraring froze because the seal in the base of the jar was leaking. Solution: Clean seak surfaces, replace bearing and fuse. Total cost of $6 with my labor.
