How to Troubleshoot a Kitchen Ninja Processor

Your Ninja kitchen processor easily chops and blends ice, vegetables and fruits to make delicious smoothies. It is understandable how you could miss the convenience when the blades stop turning. Uneven, too watery or too fine concoctions can also result on occasion. Fortunately, most problems can be solved. Review some tips to quickly get your Ninja processor back in tip-top, chopping shape.

Step 1

Unplug the machine's power cord from the outlet if the motor stops running or the blades stop turning. Wait 10 minutes for it to cool down and then replug.

Step 2

Verify that the gear box is securely fitted onto the processing bowl if the machine still does not work. Turn the power head counterclockwise and line it up with the arrows. Lock the power head into place.

Step 3

Check the circuit breaker in your house. Replace any blown fuses, then reset the circuit breaker. Verify that the wall outlet is working if the machine still does not work.

Step 4

Cut the food into small, even-size pieces, and use smaller quantities if the food chops unevenly.

Step 5

Pulse the "Power" button using short bursts if the food turns out to be too watery or too finely chopped. Wait until the blade stops turning completely, then pulse the "Power" button again. Shorten the processing time and limit the total processing time to a maximum of two minutes.

Step 6

Swap fully frozen ice for semimelted ice if snow ice did not form correctly.
