I plugged in my blender the power light comes on when I press it. Also all the button lights come on when I prees them. The problem is the blender does not work. What am I not doing right or is there a mal function? I cannot find my manual and this is the first time I am using the blender.
I have had my blender sitting for over a year ( only used it once ) because of the same problem and asked my husband to take a look at it... he opened it ... cut the zip ties took the metal banding off ( note only one side of the motor has the metal banding). What you need to get at is behind the first (I think) resistor. Behind that is a thermal fuse (found at radio shack part # 270-1320 about $1.96). you will need some kind of tester to check the ohms going through it (should read zero) the bad one on mine read 334 ohms and you will need a soldering iron to put it back together. Actually a good project for someone who loves to tinker with this.

Mine developed the same problem except it stopped blending while I was using it. Being an electrician I opened mine up and put a meter on the motor windings and found that the windings were open. So basically the motor is shot...unless you can find a part number for motor replacement or if your's is still under a warranty...it might just be easier to buy a new blender.
Do you hear it hum when you try to turn it on?
If yes, remove the cup. Try again... if the motor runs, try moving the blade by hand. If it is seized, remove it and clean it to free it again.
If not, possibly blown windings on the motor or divider circuit (which supplies different voltages to the motor for the different blend speeds). Repair will be required in either case.
either the motor is inoperable, or is improperly wired. return it to the retailer. that is assuming you have the cup firmly seated before you try to operate the machine.also if the control panel has more than one speed make certain that only one button, or switch position is engaged
