Why is your mixer grinder not working?
Motor is not rotating :
This is most severe cause behind mixer grinder not working. I should mention it later but it comes first in my mind that is why I could stop myself to mention here.
Motor may stop rotating due to damaged winding, gear or other internal components. You can inspect motor winding yourself if you have knowledge but if it comes under warranty period then you should call authorized service center person to inspect.
Due to overloading or running mixer grinder for longer period may cause of damaged winding. Overloaded appliance will draw extra current (cause of heat) through winding that may burn winding insulation or break its continuity. So always check winding continuity before any further inspection.
Blades of jar got jammed :
Sometime mixer grinder’s motor is okay but when you attach jar with motor unit, jar’s blade is stuck and its not rotating any more. Its happens due to damaged bearing.
Water and other salty liquid leaked through that coupling mechanism and reached into bearing of blades. That salty water corrode metallic bearings and damaged that. That is why blades got jammed some time.
Try to rotate blades in opposite direction manually for few turns. If it does not work then give few drops of oil (coconut or mustard) on coupling mechanism by keeping jar upside down. Try to manually rotate blades and keep aside for 5-10 minutes. Now attached it with motor unit and try a test run. If it runs without any noise or disturbance then job done perfectly, otherwise call service center.
Attachment mechanism of jar with motor unit has been broken :
Broken motor coupler may stop rotation of jar’s blade when motor is working perfectly. This may happen due to overloading, ages of using or poor quality material. You can replace that. It will not cost high, so inform your service center guy or call a authorized person to replace it.
Electric wire got damaged :
Mixer grinder’s electric wire may be damaged, so always inspect that wire too before doing any further inspection. It should be your first thing to inspect but it is not a severe problem or will not incur high cost.
Other problems of mixer grinder
Spark & burning smell inside mixer grinder :
Any spark or burning may be an indication of major fault. So do not neglect any such thing, immediately stop running mixer grinder and call authorized person to inspect.
Jar got cracked :
Jars generally do not get cracked. It may be cracked due to poor quality of material or improper handling by user. Some people said that their jar got cracked after few month of years but they did not even used that one. This may only happen when it built with poor quality steel.
