Making a high pitched noise while blending; is motor breaking down?


there are some Breville Blender troubleshooting tips here
http://brevilleusasupport.com/bbl550xl/troubleshooting . Tied in with that, a high pitched noise could come in from a few directions:

Some blenders will use reduction gears to get more torque and power out of a high RPM, lower power motor. If this is the case, the whine could be from the motor, though if you hadn't noticed before, that would not be reassuring.

Per the troubleshooting, check that the blade is firmly attached, and that the coupling from jug to base is firm. If there are gaps or loos spots, there can be buzzing or whining between sort-of-spinning parts and shafts or bolt threads.

Check the motor base for dried spilled-on margarita mix or marinara sauce or what have you. they try to seal this pretty tight in a blender, but it has to spin, so food spills can get in the gap and cause friction and resistance, which can in turn cause whining noises from parts not expecting the load. If you do any cleaning or poking there, make sure you unplug the blender first. Shocks are not fun.

likewise, make sure that blade rotates easily from turning the coupling on the outside of the jug. If not, the bearing may be siezed or contaminated. That you'd likely want to fix by replacement.

Hope this helps!

Why doesn't blade spin?


Either the coupling from the motor with the fingers on it is not really attached to the motor shaft or the drive on the blade that engages with it is not attached to the blade shaft. One other thing is that on some models if the rubber jar seal between the beaker and the blade carrier is in the wrong place it can raise the blade drive to not engaging properly with the motor coupling. The gasket goes between the jar and the blade carrier, not under the blade carrier.

Kitchenaid blender motor loud hum not working


Can you check it without the beaker on? It could be the blade seizing up, how free does it turn by hand?

My wolfgang puck 1.6 hp professional blender will not spin the blades if there is anything in the blender container.


This is not really the solution it is just a better description of the problem that I am also having. This is a great blender however the part where the cup blades conect to the motor is made of plastic.
So what has happened here is that the motor is fine, the cup is fine only the plastic part that makes the motor turn the blades has worn down therefore rendering the blender useless. I would like to know where I could get this small part to change on my blender!!!

My ninja blender motor starts but the blades don't turn


As stated earlier it could be the shaft needs lubing, remove the bottom part of the blender blade... the rubber thing that engages on the motor. I started with WD-40 and worked some lithium grease into it. Spins like new now.

Blade won't spin


Check the blade with it off the base and make sure that it spins freely. Check the spindle on the base and see if it feels hard to turn. If the spindle turns too easy , then the connection inside the base is broken and needs replacing.

The blades stopped turning in the middle of blending a batch of hummus Its is a Kitchen Aid blender about 10 years old


Does the motor still work if you take the pitcher off of the base? If so, the rod that's in the blade assembly is probably corroded. The blades are connected to a metal rod that passes through a brass tube through to the piece that makes contact with the motor when you put the pitcher on the base. The grease wears down eventually and if you don't pulse and run the motor for a long time at once, the heat can corrode the bar and cause the blade to stop spinning. You can either disassemble the blade unit, or buy a new blade unit online. google blender parts and you can get one for $10

Motor works but blade not spinning


Check and make sure that the shaft in the base housing spins. If it does, the blade assembly has become disconnected from it's shaft probably due to an improper spot weld or peening of the blades to the shaft, or has torn loose or ripped the splines out due to an immovable object trying to be spun. A jammed ice cube can do this. Blade assemblies can be had usually directly through the manufacturer and usually on line. If this has helped, please rate it accordingly.
