If the motor of the blender is running at a slower speed now no matter what you're blending, the unit needs to repaired or replaced. Most small appliance manufacturers    { margin: 0.79in } P { margin-bottom: 0.08in } A:link { so-language: zxx } --> don't repair their units anymore, they simply replace them. If you're no longer in warranty, unless you paid over $200 for the blender, it's time to get a new one.

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.

Haven't used it in a while and when I did the interior was smoking and the smoothie tasted terrible


It could be either a melted wire or the motor winding overheated and shorting out. If it is the motor, you should just buy a new blender. It would have to be taken apart to see inside. If you are handy, fix the burnt wire yourself. If not, better off buying a new one. Do not leave it plugged in, when not being used, due to a fire hazard.

I followed the link to purchase a rubber gasket for my blender. The item is $2, weighs less than an ounce, but the shipping charges are over $10 from Utah to California. Something wrong here.


I called the place.. and the lady sold me 2 Gaskets.. for $2 and only charged me $4 for shipping.. Much better rate.. We love our smoothie machine.. but when you cant find decent replacement parts.. its really dis-heartning.
