Question about Breville BBL550XL 5-Speed Blender

1 Answer

The blade has become VERY tight and will hardly turn. When I turn on the blender the motor strains to get it turning, and when it does it makes a horrible sound. I've stopped using it because I don't want to burn up the motor. Does the blade bearing, or whatever it is, need to be greased periodically? If so, how do I do that?

Put a socket or a wrench on the nut in the middle of the blades, and hold the other set with a set of pliers, and, as the original poster said, it is reverse threaded.

SOURCE: blades need to be greased, but I don't know what

To take the blades off, grab the blades with a rag so you don't cut yourself, then grab the other end with a rag and turn CLOCKWISE - it's reverse threaded, so lefty loosey doesn't work here, it's lefty tighty, so turn to the right. Figured it out after an hour of mental anguish

SOURCE: grease build up around blade and where it attaches to base

Grease can only creep into the blender vase if the oil seal has worn out, or the blenders blade shaft is worn and wobbling. Try cleaning all parts in alcohol to soften the seals. Rebuild kits and replacement blades can be found here (http://www.brevilleusa.com/breville-parts/blending.html)

The blender blades are only moving really slowly. Can I open the blender to clean parts that may be sticking? If yes, then how do I do this?


If blender blades are realy turn to slow in most cases the armature of the motor can having a few bad collectors where the carbon brushes can be to short but have been warned of the risc to order new carbon brushes that they can be becomes as short as the old ones in a real very short time, so make a ohm measure of the armature collectors over the carbon brushes if there is a thermal closure in the anchor(armature), in most case you can smell the problem or hear it and sometimes feel it because the motor becomes hotter then normally that its no longer has the right speed anymore.
Replace the blender is most times marketing technical an better option then repair it. but its in priority depend most on the brand and price.

How can I change the blade for my 2 speed hand mixer? The model type is NC-12 if you need to know


you are using your KitchenAid blender and it stops blending, you may think there is a problem with the motor in your machine. However, a common reason for the blades not rotating in the blender is a dirty or faulty coupler. The coupler is what connects your blender dispenser to the motor, and you can easily replace the coupler at any time by only using a screwdriver.
Things You'll Need
  • Flat-blade screwdriver
    • 1 Turn the blender dispenser clockwise and lift up to remove it. Set the blender dispenser aside.
    • 2 Insert a flat-blade screwdriver between the black drive coupler and the frame of the blender on the top center portion of the blender.
    • 3 Lift the screwdriver upward, and the coupler will start to bend out of place. Slightly turn the coupler and then lift up on the screwdriver again.
    • 4 Continue to move the coupler slightly and lift the screwdriver until the coupler is completely removed.
    • 5 Insert the new coupler over the blender's motor blade and then twist the coupler counter-clockwise until it is tightly fastened.

Blade not turning


Ouch. That doesn't sound good.
Is the blade seating & locking on the spindle? Try turning it with your hand (unplug the blender first!).
Examine the underside of the blade, and the spindle, for cracks.

If you find a problem here, it may be a simple matter of replacing the blade assembly.

If not, try running it dry... no blade, no container. Just short shots of one second. Is the spindle turning? If it turns, then put the container & blade back on... but just put water in the container.
If the blade turns, whipping the water (but doesn't turn if you put something more dense in it), that suggests that your bearings are going out.

In summary:
  • If the spindle turns but the blade doesn't turn, look at your blade assembly. (Plastic can hide a crack.)
  • If the spindle turns "sometimes", but not when subjected to resistance, then it's probably worn bearings.
  • If the spindle doesn't turn at all, then your blender will need to be professionally repaired or replaced.

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.

Blades need to be greased, but I don't know what to use or how to do it. Motor seems to be working too hard, and blades do not turn. Devise turns when blender container is not on it.

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.
