Question about K-Tec Champ HP3 Work Top Blender

2 Answers

Shaft appears to be stripping out

I have a K-Tec champ HP3 that I have had for four years. It works great but lately it is noisy and there is a ring of residue under the container when I take it off the base. I assume that the shaft is loose and is therfore causing the shaft and.or the connection to the container to strip.

I think it is still under warranty but can't figure out how to contact the service department referenced in the manual. They say to simply ship the blender off to Utah. I would prefer to talk to someone first.

How do you get warranty service on this blender.

thank you
Karen

My pitcher is stuck to the base and will not release. How do I get them apart?


You don't say what is making them stick together or what you've tried to do. Gentle heat is usually helpful and sometimes hot water can dissolve the "glue" that's causing the problem. If the pitcher is used for sweetened drinks or if it is a small pitcher used for milk or cream, the hot water can do the trick.

The bearing and seal are not replaceable. The bearing is sonically welded into thte base of the jar. The K-Tec is made by Blend-Tec, and any of the Blend-Tec jars will work as a direct replacement.

My blender wasn't runn ing well then started smoking, i took off the pitcher and saw metal flakes and the blade feels like it isnt turning easily


A small appliance that smokes is a symbol of "needs replacement
It is unsafe and can cause a short circuit on your electrical system that will cost you more than 20 blenders to fix. I just wouldn't use it, something similar happened to me with another small appliance and the deal ended up costing me $6500 in electrical wiring for the kitchen. Think about it.

My K-Tec Champ HP3 is overloading and shutting off after about 5 seconds even with the jar empty or not even on the machine. It just starts up and shuts off (displaying "OVERLOAD" on the...


Remove the 2 screws from the bottom of the base, release the 4 clips on each side and remove the bottom cover.
There is a fan blade attached to the bottom of the motor and a sensor on the side of it that senses the fan blade turning. If the sensor does not sense the fan blade turning, it assumes that the motor is locked up or 'overloaded'.
Check that the fan blade has not come loose from the motor shaft and reattach if necessary. Verify that the sensor is secure in it's housing next to the fan blade.
Reinstall the base cover and verify operation.

K-Tec Champ HP-3 Burning Smell and Light Smoke


That burning smell is kind of a death sentence. At least a switch or more likely coils are burnt out.

Looks like rubber gasket at bottom of blender container is coming apart. How can I order a replacement or do I have to order the complete container?


you might have to order a new container, because i have not been able to find individual parts for sale. however, you might try and call the manufacturer, because sometimes you can order replacement parts.

I have a K-TEC HP3 blender (2004 model). The jar started leaking bellow the blade. I tried to take out the blade and seal out, could not figure out how to. Any help is appreciated.


Usualy there is a rubber ring araound the bottom of the blade. If it gets worn out or out of posistion it may start to leak. Also if you dont have everything screwed in tight enought it could leak as well

Suddenly my blender is VERY LOUD!


Had this happen twice before. The bearings in the blade area are going. We figured that in our dishwasher the heated water pools on the top by the bearings and as it cools water is brought in contact with the bearings and they rust. We have used penetrating oil to put a pool of oil around the bearing shaft and store it like that. Still noisy but cheaper than buying the replacement. Hand wash the blender to avoid this happening to your new one if and when you replace it.
