Question about As Seen On TV Magic Bullet Food Processor

6 Answers

My magic bullet won't press down. It stays stuck and I cannot get the cup to push down onto the turning mechanism that is totally intact. It seems the side 3 pieces will not move downward when the cup is put on it.

Had the same problem - it wouldn't press down. The little white plastic things inside of the base that go up and down when the cup is pushed down, were stuck. I think that something leaked into them so they wouldn't slide easily. I wiped out the inside of the base with a damp cloth and then I put a drop or two of WD40 at the top of the white plastic pieces and rubbed it up and down the length of all 3 of the white plastic pieces (this being done with the base lying on its side so the WD40 doesn't drip down into the mechanism). Then, with base upright, I used a screwdriver to try to manually push the white plastic pieces down. It worked. Of course before doing any of this - be sure the thing is unplugged (duh!).

What I did was I got a screwdriver and manually pushed the white tabs down and it worked! they loosened up and I could use the nutribullet. I thought this was the easiest solution.

The reason it gets sticky is because the lid of the cup was not fully tightened and leaked fluid down into the switch mechanism which then dried and caused the white plastic sliders to stick. The quick fix is to lay the base on it's side and using a cloth saturated in hot water to saturate the sliders and its track to loosen the gunk that is making it sticky, while it is wet use a quick spray of WD40 to lube the slider, the WD40 will displace the water leaving a lubricating film. After my warranty expires I will disassemble the base and clean and lube it'

I tried a few of many of the helpful suggestions, so I go and retrieve my Nutri Bullet out of the trash b/c I was fed up with trying to get my cup off that has been stuck for 3 days. First after bringing it back inside, it was in a grocery store bag so it wasn't ucky...I laid it on my heating vent on the floor and left it there for abt 30-40 mins. The cup came off with ease, so I proceeded to clean and unstick all the areas I could, I found a plastic tip from one of my cups wedged in one of the white rubber thingy's...I removed it...oiled the 3 white thingy's and cleaned with a hot dish towel..prepped my cup...put it back to the unit...pressed down on every side and the blasted thing still didn't work. So I'm thinking my Nutri Bullet has made its last smoothie and back to the trash it goes. Thank you for all the suggestions b/c I did get my cup unstuck. I feel better that I didn't give up without giving a good try.

I got a fork and held the little white things down and used a srewdriver to push the little broken bits of cup out. It works again now.
I have brought a cheap drink bottle blender as a back up, just in case it doesn't last.

My guess is that the 3 small ear-like stoppers was chipped off from the cup. You should be able to pick it out from the 3 switches with something sharp and use another cup.

    Hey, I just un-stuck my Magic Bullet! Motor was seized, so I took off the bottom (4 phillips screws), turned the straight-slot screw(?) in the middle of the motor to the left and right. It "gave," then I was able to turn the rotor freely left and right. When I put a container on and ran the motor continuously for a few minutes, there was some plastic-like stuff in the container cavity. Looks like it came from under the center spindle assembly. Runs great now. Hope that helps.

    My Magic Bullet will not start or run. it does not twist in the base. How can I fix that?


    Sounds like the white plastic sliders that turn the motor on and off may be stuck. The sliders engage the 3 tabs on the mixer cup which the push down and turn the motor on. Probably have some leakage from the mixing cup gumming the white sliders up. Unplug the mixer from power and use a cloth or sponge fairly wet with some hot water to try and loosen up the stuff under the sliders. Then spritz the sliders with some WD-40 which will displace the water. Dry it off good with a paper towel, let it dry/drain well upside down on a paper towel before you plug it back in. Good luck.

    My Magic Bullet has broken. I need to know how to get it fix.


    This happened to me, and I was told by the company that I had to purchase a brand new base, that the plastic turning device can not be repaired. If it is under warranty, you may not have to pay anything but shipping, and maybe not that either. If you do not have the number to the company, go on-line and and search for it. Call the company and report what the problem is.
