SECTION 6: CARE AND CLEANING
6.1 CLEANING
1.Add 1 cup (240ml) of hot water and a drop of liquid dishwashing soap to the
blender jar.
2. Place the lid tightly onto the jar.
3. Place the blender jar on the blender base and, with your hand placed on top of the
lid, press the CLEAN cycle button.
6.2 LONG-TERM SANITATION
1. For long-term sanitation, fill the blender jar with hot water.
2. Add one to two teaspoons (5-10ml) of liquid chlorine bleach to the jar.
3. Stir for 10 seconds to mix water and bleach. Let mixture stand in blender jar
for five minutes.
4. Empty water/bleach mixture. Turn jar upside down on dish rack until dry.
6.3 CLEANING TIPS AND CAUTIONS
•Do not use stiff bristled brushes or abrasive cloths/pads to clean the blender base
or jar as this will dull or scratch the surface.
•NEVER submerge the blender motor in water. Avoid submerging blender jars for
more than 5 minutes. Water penetration through the lower jar seals will reduce the
life of the jar. After cleaning, we recommend the blender jar be stored upright.
15
•BLENDER JAR IS DISHWASHER SAFE—TOP RACK ONLY!
•Extreme temperatures damage the lower seal of the jar. We recommend hand
washing to prolong the life of the blender jar. We do not recommend the jar be
used for temperatures abo boiling (212°F, 100°C).
SECTION 7: TROUBLESHOOTING
While we don’t expect you to have any problems with your blender, sometimes
failures do occur. Use the following guidelines to see if the problem is easily fixed
or requires service.
7.1 BLENDER MOTOR WILL NOT TURN ON (NO POWER)
If the blender motor will not turn on, try the following:
•Determine if the Power Button is lit. Absence of a lit Power Button indicates a lack of
power to the unit.
•Make sure the blender is plugged in.
•Check your house circuit breaker switch or fuse to make sure it is set to the
ON position.
•Press the Power Button located on the upper right hand side of the touch area.
•Unplug the power cord from the wall receptacle, wait 5 seconds, then plug power
cord back in.
7.2 ERROR MESSAGES ON DISPLAY
If this icon appears on your blender, it indicates that the motor is overheating. The
blender has been disabled until the unit cools to operating temperatures. Turn off
and unplug the unit. Allow it to cool for at least 20 minutes, then plug it back into
check if the icon is still visible. If the icon does not disappear after 20 minutes or
more of cooling time, please call your Blendtec Service Agent.
If this icon appears on your blender, please turn off and unplug the unit. Check the
blender jar for blockage and clear if necessary. Plug in the unit and turn the blender
on again. If the icon is still visible on your blender, contact your Blendtec Service
Agent.
If this icon appears on your blender it indicates that more than one touch sensor
on the blender has been touched. This icon should only appear as long as the
multiple sensor areas are being touched. If this icon remains on when no one is
touching the touch area unplug and re-plug in the blender. If the problem persists
please contact your Blendtec Service Agent.
If this message appears on the LED information center it indicates there has been
an error. There are error messages from E-01 through E-06. If any of these errors
appear, press the stop button to clear the message. If the error message reappears
please contact your Blendtec Service Agent.
16
7.3 NOISE LEVEL CHANGES
If the blender noise level has increased from original levels, determine whether the
sound is coming from the blender motor or jar.
•Blender Motor: Remove the pitcher and run blender at highest speed.
•Listen to how the motor sounds. If it is excessively noisy, contact your
Blendtec service center for evaluation.
•Jar: After checking the motor, place the jar back on the motor. Run the motor
for a few seconds using the Pulse button. (If you have more than one jar, test
a different jar to determine whether the sound is different.) If a jar is exces­
sively noisy, or if the blade assembly seems loose or sounds “gravelly” when
turned by hand, contact your Blendtec service center.
7.4 BLENDED TEXTURE UNSATISFACTORY
If the blended texture of product is lumpy or uneven, do the following:
•Ensure the mixture is not cavitating during the cycle. Cavitation is a condition
in which an air pocket forms within the drink mix because the mix is too cold
or too solid. The blender blade then spins freely in this cavity. This problem
can be corrected by increasing the mix temperature by either reducing
ice, increasing liquid and/or ensuring that the frozen ingredients used in the
recipe are never colder than 10 degrees Fahrenheit (-12 degrees Celsius).
•If the drink is mixing well but has not had enough time for complete blending, increase cycle time. Try a longer cycle or touch and hold the “Pulse”
button for the required extra blending time.
•TRIED EVERYTHING? If none of the preceding suggestions work, contact
your Blendtec service agent for further assistance.
INSTRUCTIONS THAT APPEAR IN THIS USER GUIDE ARE NOT MEANT TO
