Do the lights come on but the motor won't come on? I had the same issue with my Cuisinart blender.
The problem is very often a thermal fuse. It protects the motor by opening the circuit if there is too much current or if the motor is overheating. If indeed this is the issue with yours, the device is less than $2 each is sold at Radio Shack but finding someone to replace it for you might be hard. On my motor there were two thermal fuses taped onto each stator winding. It took about 1-1/2 hours of work to remove and rework because of the unusual location.
Another part that often blows is the triac that controls the motor. This is around $4 but again, it's finding someone who can replace it with the correct replacement.
Do you hear it hum when you try to turn it on?
If yes, remove the cup. Try again... if the motor runs, try moving the blade by hand. If it is seized, remove it and clean it to free it again.
If not, possibly blown windings on the motor or divider circuit (which supplies different voltages to the motor for the different blend speeds). Repair will be required in either case.
either the motor is inoperable, or is improperly wired. return it to the retailer. that is assuming you have the cup firmly seated before you try to operate the machine.also if the control panel has more than one speed make certain that only one button, or switch position is engaged
I have had my blender sitting for over a year ( only used it once ) because of the same problem and asked my husband to take a look at it... he opened it ... cut the zip ties took the metal banding off ( note only one side of the motor has the metal banding). What you need to get at is behind the first (I think) resistor. Behind that is a thermal fuse (found at radio shack part # 270-1320 about $1.96). you will need some kind of tester to check the ohms going through it (should read zero) the bad one on mine read 334 ohms and you will need a soldering iron to put it back together. Actually a good project for someone who loves to tinker with this.
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
