SECTION 6: CARE AND CLEANING

6.1

CLEANING AFTER USE

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 Pulse button for 5 seconds or press the Clean cycle button which is available on select models�

4� Rinse well�

5� Clean the base by simply wiping the base and interface with a damp cloth�

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

1� 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�

2� 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

3� BLENDER JAR IS DISHWASHER SAFE—TOP RACK ONLY!

4� Extreme temperatures damage the lower seal of the jar� We recommend handwashing to prolong the life of the blender jar� We do not recommend the jar be used or exposed to, temperatures above 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:

1� Determine if the Power Button is lit� Absence of a lit Power Button indicates a lack of power to the unit�

2� Make sure the blender is plugged in�

3� Check your house circuit breaker switch or fuse to make sure it is set to the

ON position�

4� Press the Power Button located on the upper right hand side of the touch area�

5� 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 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 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 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�

1� Blender motor: Remove the jar, and press Pulse �Listen to the motor�

If it is excessively noisy, please contact your Blendtec Service Agent for evaluation�

2� Jar: After checking the motor, fill the jar with 2 cups of water and place back on the motor base� Run the blender for a few seconds by pressing 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 excessively noisy, or if the blade assembly seems loose or sounds gravelly when turned by hand, please contact a Blendtec Service Agent�

7.4

BLENDED TEXTURE UNSATISFACTORY

If the blended texture of product is lumpy or uneven, do the following:

1� Ensure the mixture is not cavitating during the cycle� Cavitation is a condition in which an air pocket forms within the mix because it 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)�

2� 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�

3� 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

COVER EVERY POSSIBLE CONDITION OR SITUATION THAT MAY OCCUR.

GOOD JUDGMENT MUST BE USED WHEN OPERATING THIS OR ANY

OTHER MACHINERY.
