Question about Breville CBL10 BlendMaster Classic Work Top Blender

Open Question

Blades do not engage

We have been using the Breville CBL10 for a few months with good results. Suddenly the blades don't seem to engage with the motor drive. The disk on the top of the motor unit spins, the blade mechanism appears to be intact but the blades simply no longer spin under load. The blades will spin when the jar is empty but without any real strength behind then. Its almost like the shaft on the blade mechanism is broken and the blades are just spinning with the momentum of the broken shaft but when we turn the blades by hand, the shaft is solid. Any ideas?

    I have Breville ikon Hemisphere LCD Blender, it seems to do the same/similar problem. I put ice in and the blades just stop. With water blades spin but not real fast. I can lean the glass pitcher a quarter inch any way and it seems to start working. I removed the glass mixing pitcher allowing me to see the black gear on top of the motor the engages the blades. I depressed the safety switch so I could turn the unit on. While running I can touch the black gear with one finger and stop it from turning. Very strange. Has the gear come loose from the motor shaft? Makes no sense.

You would need something like this
Unfortunately your model is an very old one for which the chinese manufacturer no longer makes parts. Try to find the part at repair shops - they might have one , recovered from dismantled units - or just accept that it's dead and buy a new one.

Sounds like the gear teeth may be stripped

My blender will not spend when trying to mix or when there is fruits are being use

If the motor is running but the blades are not turning then you need to look for the fault either with the drive on top of the motor or the drive under the blades that engages with the motor drive. (Called clutches or couplings) Often there is damage to both so both need to be replaced.

Why doesn't blade spin?

Either the coupling from the motor with the fingers on it is not really attached to the motor shaft or the drive on the blade that engages with it is not attached to the blade shaft. One other thing is that on some models if the rubber jar seal between the beaker and the blade carrier is in the wrong place it can raise the blade drive to not engaging properly with the motor coupling. The gasket goes between the jar and the blade carrier, not under the blade carrier.

If the motor is running then the fault must be with either the clutch on top of the motor or the blade clutch it engages with.

My ninja blender motor starts but the blades don't turn

As stated earlier it could be the shaft needs lubing, remove the bottom part of the blender blade... the rubber thing that engages on the motor. I started with WD-40 and worked some lithium grease into it. Spins like new now.

Hello, I didn't see model #BBL600XL which is what

The jar has to be on for it to blend.

If you replace the jar first check the printing on your old jar. If your jar has blue print you will need a new jar and blade, Breville redesigned the jar and now the old blades don't work with the new jars. You tell the difference between the jars by the print color, old is blue, new is white.

BBL600XL/06A jar part number
BBL600XL/14A blade part number

Hello. I need two parts for my Breville Classic BlendMaster Model CBL-10. I need the removable centrally located inner lid and also the blade assembly features patented stainless steel twin cutting...

Breville CBL10 has been a fantastic appliance but now electrical section works at slow speed only so I will get rid of it, however the glass jug complete with lid, blade etc is still perfect. Does anyone need this part? I am in Rockhampton.

    There is a store at Bondi Junction (Oxford street) where I purchased replacement blades as mine broke. Dont have their details though. Try tracking them down.
