Cuisinart CBT-500 blender won't work

Use this infrequently & have had no problems. Went to use it last night and it won't work. The red indicator lights come on and when you it a button the timer starts to count ("1), but no motor noise or spinning.
Thought the cap was not on tight enough (to make the connection with the base), blade mechanism will spin if I manually move it (so it's not stuck). It'll be 4 years old this month.

    Lights on but nobody's home: buttons and timer come on, but no motor movement at all. Is there an internal fuse or reset on this thing? I've taken the base off and the wires seem connected.

(0) unplug unit (1) Remove the bottom 4 screws, cover plate and motor shield ( 2) unhook the white motor wire from its binding clip ( 3) locate the plastic sleeve with the fuseable link (4) cut the sleeve and test for continuity between points on either side of link with ohmmeter (5) if no continuity, clip out fuseable link and and solder the white wire back together (6) cover with tape (7) rebind to other wires (8) replace bottom and check. This worked for me.

SOURCE: replace the blade driver clutch on a Cuisinart CBT-500

I had this same problem. It was solved but let me tell you it was a nightmare and we were almost sure the blender would be destroyed at least 3 times during the ordeal.

Here's a hint: the thread is on opposite to a normal screw thread so that it gets tighter as the blender spins.

Steps:
1. Take the base off the blender and pop out the motor.
2. Turn over the motor and remove the round rubber part at the bottom. You will see a flathead screw. This is where you grip the shaft that the cursed brass coupler thread is attached to.
3. Find someone else to help and also a large strong flathead screwdriver.
4. With a friend holding a screwdriver in place at the bottom, grip the top brass thread with pliers (or better yet a pipe wrench) and twist it the opposite way you normally would.
5. Become extremely frustrated by the fact that the screw thread is made of cheap metal and strips instantly and that the brass thread is also cheaply made and rips right through your pliers / wrench.
6. Find a hack saw and a hammer.
7. Cut the brass thread off with the hack saw. Hammer the stubborn remaining pieces of it off with a screwdriver. Be prepared to cut off half of the shaft.
8. Eventually you should have hammered / sawed the brass thread off. If the shaft and motor are still intact, you can now screw the new coupler on (remember - its backwards). We had only about half of the shaft thread left and it still worked ok. Make sure to do this after you put the motor back in place with the shaft poking through the top of the case. Don't worry too much about how tight it is. As I mentioned its on backwards to tighten the coupler during normal use.
9. Replace the casing and screws, don't forget that rubber thing at the bottom.
10. Curse Cuisinart and make a drink, you deserve it.

Power light blinks and blender won't turn on


Probably just a fuse. Also try a different outlet. Check the manual for fuse location and other possible solutions.

Consult the manual for troubleshooting tips. Other than that you may want to get a new blender as repairing it would be more costly than the unit itself.
