Die-Cast Hemisphere® Blender Troubleshooting

Dull Blades

Though the blades of the Die-Cast Hemisphere® Blender are made of surgical grade stainless steel, over time those blades can become dull. If it seems that normal blending activities are taking longer to perform, it may be time to replace the blade assembly. This is fairly standard maintenance on the blender though the dullness can be accelerated or can take longer depending on the kind of use the blender gets. Chopping ice will cause the blades to loose their edge faster then blending soft fruit smoothies. Please see the parts page for this blender to purchase replacements, including the blade assembly: 800BLXL Parts

The blade is not rotating

If you find that the blade on your blender will not turn and the motor will not engage, though there is power to the blender, there are a few reasons this could be happening:

  • Ensure that the blender jug is securely locked into position. The jug being loose means that the blade will not turn. This is a safety feature.
  • Make sure that the blade assembly is correctly and securely attached to the bottom of the blender jug. If it is not screwed in completely, the jug will not sit on the base correctly which will prevent the blades from turning. Again, this is a safety feature.
  • Check the power button and selected function or speed are illuminated. If they are not, push on the correct buttons firmly.
  • Ensure that the power plug is securely inserted into a 110/120 volt outlet. If the plug is loose or the voltage is incorrect, this will prevent the blender from working correctly.
