First take off the container and on the under side bottom of it that sits in the unit is a drive gear see if you can turn it with your fingers also at the bottom of the wet container inside it is a blade that spins in a bearing and this bearing gets tight or even seized up at times strip out this bearing and renew it and the seal but watch your fingers as the blade is very sharp rap it in a thick rag to hold it in your fingers,,,,

Burning smell in the container and outside when in use


Seal under blade Assembly, on shaft leaks, allows liquid to enter bearing, which then fails, creates heat and overheats rubber, thus the smell. Bearing and seal must be replaced.

The blade in my Super 5000 wet container turns very stiffly.Should I take it off and lubricate it? There also seems to be water visible under the bottom of the container.


Stiff or stuck blade problems can be fixed by replacing the two bearings and seal inside the blade assembly. Care must be taken in installing the new bearings as not to damage them. Ideally they should be pressed in, on a press, but they can carefully be tapped in using a sockets to match inner and outer races so your not tapping on the balls.

That burning smell is kind of a death sentence. At least a switch or more likely coils are burnt out.

Osterizer blender problem


Is the black plastic part, seal, and glass portion snugly fitted together? If so, it's likely that the black plastic part isn't making contact with the pin. On mine I have to turn it about a quarter turn to lock it to the motor/ drive pin.

If I have a hard object such as ice cubes too firmed placed in the blender against the blade and the glass, I shake the container to loosen the materials and reseat it onto the drive pin as mentioned above.

My Sunbeam Kitchen Assist doesn't work


Hi there, you might want to check the swithing mechanism that turns the motor ON. I don't think the motor will fail, specially if it doesn't smell like it's burnt.
Just an idea...
