    It may be similar problem Ive had with Breville coffee machine and blender see post as below Most likely its the large yellow capacitor on the main circuit board. I've had this fail on my Breville coffee machine and blender.The coffee machine was a 1.5uf capicitor nd the blender 1.0uf.rated at 275vac. what happens is over the years of power spikes and surges etc the capacitor breaks down to a lesser value than its original "capacity. ie 1uf down to 0.3uf it provides enough power to drive the display electronics But not enough to power the relay to turn the motor on.
    . there are 3 screws under the label. Peel off the label . remove the 3 screw. remove the fan cover.
    to remove the fan . hold on to the blender jar mounting drive and unscrew the fan. a small square nut is what holds the fan on. remove the rubber feet an the 4 star screws under the rubber feet.
    you can then remove the base.
    Most likely the fuse is OK. However I've found ( in repairing mine) the big yellow capacitor 1uf 275vac is at fault. over time and power surges it breaks down and cannot pass enough "power:" for the power supply to call the relay to turn on the motor. You van get a new capacitor from Jaycar ( aus or NZ ) for about $6.00 . unsolder the capacitor and solder a new one in. reassembly is reverse. Just be careful not to trap the micro swicth wires ( black) under the motor surround.

More often than not it will need the motor to be replaced, only Kitchen Aid parts will do, motors are usually unique to brands and models. Sometimes it can be the control/button panel but normally the motor.

I was using my blender and stopped to add more ice for a smoothy mix, but when I tried to start it up again the lights began flashing at random but the blender would not work. Why?


It sounds like it may have overheated. Firstly, Switch it off and let it cool down for a few hours. Quite often it will burst back into life. If not, you will probably need a new control board. These come in several variations:

Breville blender won't turn on. The on light is flashing red instead of solid blue. Worked fine a few days ago.


FIXED IT - It's the screws on the bottom of the jar assembly, where the blades are attached. There are 4 Torx screws - star-shaped - and when these come loose over time the Blender will start to operate only sometimes. Eventually it will be never.
Tighten these four screws and everything will be fine!

Sounds like the brushes are not making good contact or you have a defective switch. Run the blender witout the container or blades . Free run it for 5 minutes id you can and see if that helps.

Breville blender bbl550 stopps after 5 seconds any setting


Mine does this as well... 5 seconds of operation and then OFF.
My guess is this is a fail safe where the blender is turning itself off to avoid overheating and what could potentially cause this overheating is the blender is struggling to turn the blades. What could cause this struggling of turning the blades I am guessing is a lack of oil in the blades rotating parts.
If you hold the circular blade part and turn it, you'll probably find that its hard to turn? Mine is... and I oiled it up a bit and found I got a bit more usage out of it... although only temporarily.
Ideally I need to pull it apart and oil it properly.

Black and Decker BL3900 stopped working


I had the same problem with BL6000 model. After using the blender few times it went dead, though on occasions it ran for a couple of seconds or so. I opened the base and saw the red light come on and off in response to pressing the buttons, but the blender would not run. I checked the connections and resistances across various points, and then decided to bypass the digital control panel by joining the blue (AC) and black (motor) wire terminals, as the control panel must be altering the frequency or voltage going across this connection into the field coils (and also to rotor). The motor is rated at 120V. The motor ran perfectly, though i let it run only briefly, confirming that it itself is all right. I think one must check a step further by studying the current and voltage characteristics to ensure that the motor does not consume more than rated 550 watts if you do not wish to buy the digital control panel ( part number BL5000-01-01, available through partstore.com or black and decker partner site. It should fit BL6000 as per partstore.com). The motor seems like an univeral motor. If anyone knows more about motors and has the same problem, then pl let me know if bypassing the digital control panel and using an external switch to shut the motor on and off is a good idea (digital panel and shipping will buy an equivalent blender in stores, about $18). I am afraid that if digital control panel does not let unregulated power be delivered to the field (and rotor) coils, then one may be putting too much power into the motor and it may burn out prematurely.

My IKON 600 Blender fuse had blown. It was located on the circuit board and can be found by removing the bottom of the blender. Fuse is Fast Blow 10A, metric 5mmx20mm. The fuse blew because the bearing in the bse of the jar froze. Bearing # 608-RS. The beraring froze because the seal in the base of the jar was leaking. Solution: Clean seak surfaces, replace bearing and fuse. Total cost of $6 with my labor.
