I’ve had my Magic Bullet since 2008, and it has been one of the best purchases I’ve ever made in the kitchen.
It seemed like it was going to die, and I was unsure of what to do with this quality product that I felt compelled to keep and continue using despite the impending threat of not functioning at all.
After trying various fixes and surfing the internet, I was able to make my product function again.
Try the Reset Button
Make sure you push down on your magic bullet base for at least 10 seconds before plugging it in again. This process resets your base and often fixes whatever problem you were having.
If your motor still won’t turn on, plug a different appliance into that same outlet to see if power is working. If it isn’t, then there may be an issue with that outlet or even with your breaker panel.
Remove all parts from your Magic Bullet including cups, blades, tops, and bottoms. You can keep them in order so they are easier to put back on correctly when you are done cleaning them.
Take apart all of the pieces that make up your blade assembly by placing them in a bowl or cup of water. The water will help clean off any food residue that might be stuck after a few uses.
After doing it, try to check the blender again. Hopefully, this time it will work absolutely fine and all your difficulties will be sorted out.
Check the Fuse
The first thing to check when troubleshooting an electrical problem is to make sure there’s power getting to it. In most cases, you can find that fuse box under your kitchen sink or somewhere in your basement.
If your mixer won’t turn on and nothing else happens when you push any of its buttons, it could be that a fuse has blown out. Find out where the fuse box is and replace it—that should get everything working again.
It’s not an easy fix, but it’s also not terribly difficult. And if all else fails, call an electrician! After all, you don’t want someone to get hurt trying to fix things that should probably be left alone by someone who knows what they’re doing.
Clean Blades and Cup Assembly
The first thing you need to do is ensure your blades and cup assembly are clean. Simply run them through a cycle with some hot water and mild dish soap. Next, use a cotton swab to gently clean around where the blades fit into their assembly.
Make sure you don’t get any liquid into your motor (that could damage it), but be liberal in getting up whatever grime you can see or feel on these parts of your machine.
Replace Blade Assembly
Replace your damaged blade assembly with a new one. First, remove any remaining juice left in your blending container. You can then use a screwdriver to unscrew two screws holding on your blade assembly.
Next, remove old blades from the blades housing and attach them to a new blade assembly using two screws included with your replacement blades.
Finally, place both of your new blades into housing, making sure to place rubber end caps over both metal ends of each blade.
Replace Motor Unit
Sometimes, when you turn on your blender and it doesn’t seem to be working, it just means that your motor unit needs replacing.
If it seems like you have a problem with your blender’s motor unit, don’t worry.
It happens more often than you might think; in fact, there are a lot of instances where an old or malfunctioning motor could cause damage to your machine.
This is something many manufacturers won’t tell you; they want to sell you another product.
However, if changing out your motor is as simple as buying a new one at any big box store like Wal-Mart or Target, then go for it! Your Magic Bullet will work like new once again!

I am sure you have already found out that in order to fix a problem with your magic bullet blender, you will probably need to take it apart and clean out all of the gunk.
To do so, flip your machine over so that you can get at those pesky little blades (make sure not to touch them!) and remove them using a small screwdriver.
Next, soak all of your plastic pieces in warm water with dish soap for 15 minutes and then use a toothbrush to scrub away any residue or grime.
If after doing all of these steps, there is still grime present on your blades or glass jar, then use nail polish remover to scrub away any stubborn bits of buildup.
If you still are unable to solve the issue, then you should better contact Magic Bullet Support for solving your further queries.
