Check to make sure that your Magic Bullet is plugged into a suitable power source. The Magic Bullet has a very effective 120 V/ 60 Hz/ 250 Watt motor.
If your Magic Bullet is plugged in but still is not turning on, your power cord may be faulty. Inspect the cord for tears or exposures of wires. If there are tears or exposures, follow the link to the Magic Bullet Power Cord Replacement Guide.
There are small white activators on the power base that signal for the beginning of the blending process. If these activators are stuck or broken, the Magic Bullet will not turn on. Follow this link to the Magic Bullet Activator Replacement Guide.
The device shows signs of powering on, but the blades will not turn.
If the blades of your Magic Bullet are warped or bent, you may have to order new ones. To buy a new blade base, go here.
The Magic Bullet should not be run for more than a minute at a time. Unplug your Magic Bullet and let it cool down before reusing.
If the gear in the base broke, the blades may not turn properly. Follow this link to the Magic Bullet Base Gear Replacement Guide.
The blender is on and the blades are turning, but it won't crush or blend anything in the cup effectively and/or efficiently.
If your Magic Bullet is overfilled, the blades will only turn and not crush or blend. Try removing some food/ice out of the cup and trying again.
Turn off and unplug your Magic Bullet for safety. Then, remove and thoroughly clean out any food found between the blades that may be stopping the blades from functioning properly.
If you have had your Magic Bullet for a long time, the blades may have become dull and need to be replaced. You can buy new blades here.
The device is blending properly, but when it's used, there are obvious leaks and spillage.
If the cup or blade base is cracked, leakage can occur which would require replacement of these items. You can buy new cups and blades here.
If the outside casing of your Magic Bullet is broken leakage can occur. Follow this link to the Magic Bullet Casing Replacement Guide.
If the rubber gasket on your Magic Bullet is loose or ripped, you will need to replace it to prevent leaking. Follow this link to the Magic Bullet Rubber Gasket Replacement Guide.
When you try to lock your cup into the device, the cup will not lock in to activate the blender to start.
There are three lock-in tabs on each of the cups included with the Magic Bullet. These plastic tabs can break off. Check your Magic Bullet cup to ensure that all three lock-in tabs are in working condition.
Food can get stuck in these small notches preventing the cup from locking in properly. Ensure that these areas are clean.
