Question about Cuisinart CBT-500 SmartPower Premier Work Top Blender

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.

Why wont my kitchenaid foodprocessor start?


Take the bowl off, turn it on in the centre at the front where the base of the handle would normally be there is a light coloured button/plastic piece. Push it in with a matchstick. If the motor now starts then you have a problem with the safety switching mechanism in either the bowl or the lid. It is more often the lid. The only solution is to replace the faulty part. Easiest is go to a service agent and buy whichever part solves the problem.

Ticking sound in kitcheaid mixer


Remove the planetary and see if the noise vanishes, if not then you will need to open up the gearbox. It could be the pin retaining the fuse gear or maybe even the fuse gear itself failing. It seems unlikely though as you were only whipping cream and there is no effort in that.

The problem is not an easy one to fix, the red you can see is the motor windings betting hot due to an increase in internal resistance, There are only 2 solutions.
1. Get a local motor rewinder to strip the motor down and re-wire the motor.
2. Buy a new one.

Sorry i can't give you better news.

The part that you need is available from Oster, and their phone number is 1-800-334-0759. Their standard warranty is 1-year, so you would probably have to pay for the part. 4 years is decent for a blender - if you replace the part, an Oster will most likely last many years longer. While it is not uncompletely unheard of for a blender blade assembly to come unhinged, it is statistically infrequent - the replacement part will most likely last as long or much longer.

Blender won't work


This indicates an internal problem with the blender itself as pertaining to the motor. I would suggest contacting Kitchenaid Customer Service to see about having the blender repaired or possibly replaced.

Their toll-free phone number is 1-800-541-6390.

Blinking lights on KitchenAid blender


Alternating blinking lights on a Kitchenaid blender indicate a bad circuit board which is unable to run the motor properly. Unplug the blender, take the jar off, and turn the spindle by hand. Then plug it back in. If it does not work properly, try a different outlet (perhaps not in the kitchen). If nothing works, the blender needs to be repaired.
