SECTION 1: IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Read all instructions carefully before using your Designer series blender.
Following these instructions will help prevent injuries and damage to the machine and will
ensure that you have the best possible experience with your Designer series blender.
1.1 AVOID CONTACT WITH MOVING PARTS
• ALWAYS keep fingers, hands, hair and clothing away from all moving parts.
• ALWAYS keep all utensils away from the drive socket and blender jar blades
during operation as utensils may damage blades or the blender jar.
• NEVER put hands into the blender jar or add substances by hand when the
blender jar is on the motor base.
• NEVER touch the blade with your fingers whether it is on or off the motor base.
• NEVER place jar into drive socket if blender motor is operating.
• DO NOT rock or remove the blender jar during operation.
These precautions will prevent personal injury and/or damage to the blender.
1.2 NEVER OPERATE THE BLENDER IF IT APPEARS DAMAGED
If the blender malfunctions, call your service agent first. If it is dropped or damaged
in any way, return the blender to a Blendtec service agent immediately for
examination, repair, electrical or mechanical adjustment, or possible replacement.
1.3 NEVER OPERATE BLENDER IN LIQUID
To protect against the risk of electrical shock do not put the motor base in
water or other liquid. Do not use the blender outdoors where it is subject to
precipitation. Doing so will also void the warranty.
1.4 NEVER PUT NON-FOOD ITEMS INTO JAR
Utensils, rocks, and glass are dangerous if placed in jar. Damage caused by such
foreign objects will void the warranty. Keep hands and utensils out of jar while
blending to reduce the risk of severe injury to persons or damage to the blender.
Utensils may only be used when the blender is not running.
1.5 NEVER OPERATE THE BLENDER WITHOUT THE LID IN PLACE
1.6 NEVER OPERATE THE BLENDER USING ATTACHMENTS NOT
SOLD BY BLENDTEC
The use of any unauthorized attachments may cause fire, electric shock, and/or
injury and will void the warranty.
1.7 BLENDER JAR MUST BE PROPERLY IN PLACE WHILE
APPLIANCE IS OPERATING
1
1.8 BLADES ARE SHARP! HANDLE CAREFULLY!
1.9 WARNING, DO NOT BLEND HOT LIQUIDS OR OTHER
HOT INGREDIENTS
Starting blend cycles with boiling or very hot liquids may result in burns or cause
the lid to blow off.
1.10 USE CAUTION WHEN BLENDING ON THE SOUP CYCLE
When blending on the Hot Soup cycle, friction of the blade will heat the contents.
The vented lid will allow pressure relief. Be careful not to come in contact with any
steam coming from the clear center lid.
1.11 POWER CORD PRECAUTIONS
• NEVER operate with a damaged cord or plug. If the supply cord is damaged it
must be replaced by the manufacturer or authorized service agent to avoid a
hazard.
• DO NOT permit the cord to hang over the edge of the work surface.
• NEVER use an extension cord with the unit.
• Unplug the blender motor when not in use, before changing blender locations, or
cleaning.
1.12 NEVER ATTEMPT TO REPAIR THE POWER UNIT
Never remove the blender motor cover. The blender motor does not contain selfadjustable or serviceable parts. A qualified service agent must make all service
adjustments. Removing the cover or attempting to service the blender will void
the warranty.

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.
