Blender won't work

When we push the button, the blender won't work, but all of the lights begin blinking in a repeating pattern.

    Same problem.

    I was blending some kibble and chicken for my ferrets (which I've done before), and when I finished, I noticed a burning smell and there was some smoke coming from the base.

    So we let it cool and didn't use it for a few more days. Then when I went to turn it on, it lit up, then began with the alternating lights.

    We have it opened up right now to look inside of it, but we can't see anything wrong..and if it's a blown fuse, we're not sure which one to replace.

    Help please?

This indicates an internal problem with the blender itself as pertaining to the motor. I would suggest contacting Kitchenaid Customer Service to see about having the blender repaired or possibly replaced.

Their toll-free phone number is 1-800-541-6390.

Two buttons are stuck in on my kitchen aid blender.

I have been searching for an answer to this same problem. My chop and mix buttons were stuck and I was getting no power or blinking lights. After finding no help on-line, I decided to take it apart and fix myself. It was easy and it worked!
1. Take the bottom of the mixer off by removing the rubber foot pads and remove the exposed 4 screws.
2. Remove the 3 sets of wires that are attached to the inside panel with clips. Very easy to remove, just squeeze at the base of the clips and pull up.
3. Remove the 2 screws holding that panel in place and gently lift off.
4. Remove the panel found under the top panel by also removing 2 screws. When you flip this panel over you will see what operates the switches.
In my blender the black plastic nubs that push against the buttons that were stuck and got twisted off kilter so they were not resetting properly. I just put a small screwdriver in there to try and straighten them as much as possible. All of these steps will be obvious as you disassemble the blender.
5. Push on the back of the buttons that were stuck to get them unstuck before reassembling everything back together.
I was surprised how easy a fix this was and how obvious what the problem was when I opened the blender up. No soldering or fancy tools needed, just 5-10 minutes and a phillips head screwdriver!
Good luck!

The pulse light is blinking, but the blender will not work

This worked for me - only took about 5 minutes (the amount of time it took for me to google Black & Decker and search through their FAQ)

Q. My blender stopped in the middle of blending. What happened?
A. Your blender has a motor overheat protection system that will automatically shut off the blender when it has been running too long with a heavy load. If this happens, unplug the blender and wait 10-15 minutes to allow the motor to cool down. Plug in the blender and resume blending.

Kitchen Aid blender

to see if its the Triac or just the off button perform this: connect the blender,while pressing the off button press the on button; if the blender stays on and you dont hear the relay function (Light ticky sound) maybe the off button get a broken solder point. But if the relay is functioning and there is no way to change the speed the problen is the TRIAC. This is a small piece on PCB with a heat sink

Blinking lights on KitchenAid blender

Alternating blinking lights on a Kitchenaid blender indicate a bad circuit board which is unable to run the motor properly. Unplug the blender, take the jar off, and turn the spindle by hand. Then plug it back in. If it does not work properly, try a different outlet (perhaps not in the kitchen). If nothing works, the blender needs to be repaired.

Lights blink, but Cuisinart Smartpower 7-speed wont turn.

The thermal fuse is blown. You can buy a replacement from RadioShack for $1.69 You have to remove the old one and solder in the new one. If youre "handy" its very easy. Take it to a repair shop, you pay about the same as a new one. Its too bad that most electronics made today are cheaper to throw away and buy a new one rather than fix them when they break.
