Blender Will Not Turn On ¶ 

The blender is plugged in, but it still will not turn on.

Check Outlet ¶ 

Make sure the blender cord is plugged in correctly. Also make sure the outlet is properly functioning.

Check Cord ¶ 

Make sure the blender cord is not severed or detached from plug. If wires are frayed, then use electrical tape to fix.

Check Attachment ¶ 

The attachment piece may not be put on correctly. Double check by removing and re-attaching to the motor body.

Proper assembly instructions are in the instruction manual below:

Buttons Not Registering ¶ 

If the high speed setting is used longer than recommended, then the motor will overheat and no longer work. Do not hold the 'High,' button for longer than 50 seconds at a time. If this occurs, then a motor body replacement may be needed.

Motor Body and Blender Shaft Do Not Connect ¶ 

The motor body and the blender shaft attachment will not fit together into a single piece.

Plastic Warped ¶ 

The heat from the drying cycle on most dishwashers is too hot for the plastic to handle without warping. Taking it out before the drying cycle or not running the dry cycle at all is the best solution. But if the plastic warps, a new blender shaft attachment is recommended.

Attachment Broken ¶ 

The inside latch of the motor body that holds two pieces together is cracked or dislodged. A new motor body is recommended.

Smart Stick Not Blending ¶ 

The blender is plugged in and running, but the blades are not rotating.

Motor Is Not Running ¶ 

When activating the Smart Stick the motor will start. If the motor is not running, then it may be overheated and will need to be replaced.

Plastic Gear Wears Down ¶ 

If the motor is running but the blades are not moving, the gear might be worn down and will need to be replaced.

Blades Broke Off ¶ 

The blades have broken off of the blender shaft. Food that is too dense may break the blades.

Worthless product; worthless site.

Ha....that is hilarious! I, too, just tried my blender and the mother won't turn on. I had it past 90 days and no receipt. At least I got a laugh with your comments. Funny.

What??? a replacement is more expensive than a new blender???? And because of bad quality from the begining???

You have to hold down (or tape down) the unlock button at the top. If it is not pressed down at the same time, the low/high buttons don’t work.

Sucks, right out of the box, the motor never turned on!

Looks really nice, just can’t use.

The instructions do not make it clear this is a two button operation as stated in a previous comment that solved my dilemma; you must simultaneously press buttons at the distal end of the handle along with the low or high speed button.

Mine keep shutting off, even though I’m holding down both top button (lock/unlock) and the speed button. I can let go of the top button, thing works for maybe 5 seconds, then stops. Anyone ???

I hold down both top button and a speed button. But the thing shuts off after a few seconds. I have to do it over again: press both buttons. Same thing. Even if I let go of top button, the thing stops in a few seconds on its own. Anyone?
