Nutri Ninja BL450 Troubleshooting

Motor doesn't start ¶ 

When you turn the blender on, the motor will not start.

Incorrectly aligned cup ¶ 

Make sure that the blender cup is properly aligned with the blender base. If it is not properly aligned, the blender can not function.

Blade doesn't rotate ¶ 

When you turn the blender on, the blade does not spin properly.

Improperly threaded blade ¶ 

Make sure the blade is properly screwed on to the cup. (WARNING: The blade is very sharp so be careful!)

Cup leaks ¶ 

While blending, your recipe leaks out of the cup.

Cracked cup ¶ 

Examine the cup and make sure there are no cracks that could cause a potential leak.

Improperly twisted blade ¶ 

Make sure that the blade is twisted on the cup properly. (WARNING: The blade is very sharp so be careful!)

Blender doesn't turn on ¶ 

When you attach the cup, nothing happens.

Unplugged ¶ 

Make sure the blender is plugged into a working outlet.

Cup not attached to base ¶ 

Make sure the cup is pressed all the way down into the base.

Blender blade doesn't attach to cup ¶ 

When you try to attach the cup to the blender blade, it will not align properly.

Uneven surface ¶ 

Put the cup on the counter so it is level and carefully screw on the blade so that it is aligned properly. (WARNING: The blade is very sharp so be careful!)

I bought my N.N. almost 2 years ago. I use it nearly everyday, but only yogurt smoothies & seeds. It worked great until it didn't. It just stopped turning on. The motor wouldn't start.There was no odd sound or strange behavior, or warning. One morning , it just wouldn't go?! I removed the cup many times and re-seated it but nothing. I tried all the above trouble shooting fixes...but nothing. It doesn't make a sound, I now have a $70 doorstop & no way to make awesome smoothies for breakfast :( The model is 900 Watt Professional. Like I said, I took good care of it, but lasted less than 2 years. What is the life expectancy of these NutriNinjas before I make another investment?

Hi @darcy I ran into the same issue!! My BL660 Nutri Ninja is only 1.5 years old and the same thing happened. I make smoothies regularly (always using plenty of liquid) and one morning, the blender motor completely stopped working. When the motor is plugged in all the lights turn on, but nothing happens when I press buttons. I tested the single serve cup and the larger jug portion with no luck (and no smoothie!!). I love Ninja, but don’t want to buy another if this will happen in another 2 years.

Were you able to find a solve to your issue?
