Question about Breville BBL600XL. 5-Speed Blender

1 Answer

I put yogurt, juice and strawberries into my blender, pushed puree (number 5) and the blender gave a jolt, then stopped. It will not turn on again. I have checked the outlet and it works so it's the blender that has shorted out or something. Can you help? Do you have repair service in Cincinnati, Ohio? Thank you

    I tried turning the blade from the bottom but it is VERY hard to do. Might this nut on the bottom be jammed and might a squirt of WD40 be worth trying? Any other thoughts would be greatly appreciated as these things are expensive!

    I don't know how I low rated you, it wasn't intentional. Thought I was asking for other thoughts...

    What is bolt breaker? I am unable to remove the blade but maybe I can get someone with stronger hands to try. I can't budge it.

    Okay, WD40 here I come! Thanks Tony!

  • kathiecox2 May 22, 2011

    Yes. I appreciated Tony's willingness to offer other thoughts and explain things well.

  • Yea, if you have checked the outlets then something more than likely happened to the circuitry. With the unit unplugged, carefully try to turn the blade from the back side and see if something got stuck preventing the blade from turning. It's a long shot but you never know.
  • You might be able to find a retailer in the area but you really need to contact the manufacturer for a repair of refund A retailer will not offer refunds or fixing, most of the time, unless the purchase was from that store.

Regards, Tony

    • Why would you low rate me and then ask for further suggestions? All you have to do is leave a comment and I will come back and respond. After all I did suggest you to give it a try didn't I? So loosen the nut and give a shot of bolt breaker in there and see if that helps. Remove the blade if you can and see if the motor spins free. Reassemble and see if it functions better.

    That nut is on there tough. It has a lock washer on there to prevent it from coming off while spinning. Bolt breaker would be like a WD-40, like you were thinking. I use the term bolt breaker because WD40 is just one bolt breaker. You can spay the nut a bit with that WD40 and let it set for an hour or so and see if it loosens things up a bit and give another try. If does take a bit of tug to get that nut loose though.

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.

Cuisinart Quick Prep is not working properly

I think the ice was too hard for a hand blender. I think the impact has caused the blade to separate from the shaft or caused the shaft to separate internally. If your blender is still under warranty you might be able to get it fixed. Note: none of the "Smoothy" recipes in the manual call for ice. One uses ice-cream. One uses "partially thawed frozen strawberries" and one uses sherbet.

When trying to blend things like frozen fruit or frozen yogurt with the Vitamix, the blade stops moving, but the motor continues running. Even if there's only enough frozen yogurt to cover the blades, it...

Frozen elements are generally not recommended for blenders of any brand. They may cause the blade assembly to stop moving completely, or to "bog down," and this may eventually damage the motor. It is recommended that frozen fruits and/or yogurt be thawed when possible before placing into a blender. If this is not a possibility for you, I would use a "pulse" or "chop ice" function to rapidly spin the blades for just a moment. This will chop the contents in smaller, more manageable parts. This should be done before adding other liquid ingredients.

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.
