Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have bought an immersion blender/chopper at Home Depot in Bracebridge, Ontario. There appears to be a small platic connector between the blending rod and the motor base that has broken. I would like to get it serviced or buy a new connector. I live in Gravenhurst, Ontario, but I am in Orillia or Barrie periodically. Please help. James A. Maunder.

    I apologize for thinking I didn't get a reply for five days. I did not know how to access your reply. I also may have neglected to tell you that the immesion blender was made by Wolfgang Puck. That may not be regularly carried by Home Depot, but that is where I bought it.

The part you described is the WHISK GEAR BOX. Home Depot stocks 2 brands of immersion blenders, Cuisinart and Kitchenaid. If you have a Cuisinart, the link below will take you to a page where you can select your model and part. Unfortunately, if you have a KitchenAid, there are no online resources to purchase a replacement Whisk Gear Box. I hope you found this post to solve your problem and thank you for using Fixya!

Is the blades supposed to come off when I take the container off of the blender.. My blender is brand new sat for 3 or 4 years after I bought it. . The first time I used it , it was extremely hard to get...

You did not specify a brand or model number of your blender; however, most blender jars will lift off their power base without turning or with only very little turning motion to release them from the base. The blade assembly should NOT come off as you remove the blender jar from the power base.

Were you successful in removing the bottom ring which normally screws on to the bottom of the blender jar from the powerbase?

You should make sure you have properly attached the blade assembly for your brand/model.

The blender blade assembly should be held on to the bottom of the blender jar by the bottom ring which screws on clockwise; most will have a sealing gasket that fits between the blade assembly and the sealing surface of the blender jar to prevent any leakage while in use. It will take much more turning to unscrew the bottom ring to release the blade assembly than it should to release the bottom ring from the powerbase.

Assemble your blender jar and blade assembly and try a dry run by placing on the powerbase, giving a couple of bursts of power, and then seeing if you are able to remove without the blender ring unscrewing.

Make sure you are comfortable with the action required to remove the blender jar from the powerbase before you put in to use.

Good luck!

LED On light keeps blinking and blender does not blend.

make sure the power cord is firmly connected to the unit. Also check to make sure the container is properly seated in the base.

Just bought new Samsung SMH9151 OTR Microwave. Installed it and it turns on for 3 seconds and turns off. I took it back down and just plugged it in the wall plug (while sitting on the counter) and same...

I don't mean to be coy, but if you bought it from a local company (Best Buy, Lowes, Home Depot), take it back (within the 30 day window) for a refund. I bought three microwaves (all poor quality) and returned them all!

I may be returning this Samsung if your review turns out to be true for my microwave.

Your best bet is to visit the manufacturer's Web site or call them.

That contact information should be in your owner's manual.

If you do not have your manual, please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.

Have you looked on the magic chef recall website? I read about the same problem on the Samsung recall website about microwaves turning themselves on.
