Why won't the motor start?
When I put the cup on the base and try to blend the ingredients, nothing happens.
The Nutri Ninja is a personal blender by Ninja Kitchen. This blender has no buttons: it starts blending when you insert the cup into the base. It is 900 watts.
On my unit, both the plastic actuators in the base and the tabs on the cup have worn down. At first, I noticed that just the tabs on the cup had worn, so I replaced the cup. Everything was good for another few months, but now the actuators in the base are worn so badly that none of the four cups I have will push the actuators down far enough to turn on the motor.
I have same problem- Ninja work beautifully then all of a sudden "NOTHING" No power working at all. Can't find anyone in Australia but did contact ENGLAND |Ha HA. that did not help much. Anyone know "where" in NSW Australia people fix these? A great machine when it is working.
Just fixed mine! The two or three tabs on the base unit need to depress when the jug is installed - mine were not because part of the plastic broke off on the bottom of the jug! So I jambed a couple of small pieces of plastic in to depress the two contacts on the base - one also worked - and put a little glue in to hold and and presto - the blinking light is off!!! You can test if this is the problem by using a very small screw driver and pressing down on the base contact - once you do the power should not flash - if so, you have solved the problem and likely the jug base is broken - really poor design - likely broke off when taking it on and off?
Now when the jug goes on it works - this may not be the safest solution but it works - check the base of the jug - maybe yours is broken off as well? I am going to order a new one.
