I had a Nutri bullet that stopped working. I’ve tried all of the troubleshooting steps. However, none of them seemed to work. One day it just stopped spinning, and nothing seems to get it going again. I don’t want to get rid of it because there are so many good things about Nutri bullets. That’s why I decided to find out what could be wrong with my Nutri bullets and how to get rid of the issue for good.

When you’ve made sure nothing is wrong with the outlets and have tried resetting it by unplugging it from both sockets, the following might be a problem:



* When your blade base isn’t seated correctly in the container.



* You have run out of power while trying to make something.

* You have a loose nut or bolt, and it needs to be tightened.

* Your blade might need to be replaced.

All of these are easily fixable with the following steps:

– Make sure your blade base is seated correctly in the container before you plug in power again. You may want to make sure everything is plugged into the proper outlets as well.

– Try using your nutribriBullet bladelet before running out of power again to make sure that is the problem. If it still won’t work, try resetting it and plugging in a new outlet or powering up another one if they are both dead.



– Make sure all parts are tight by tightening any loose nuts or bolts.



– Replace your blade if it needs replacement, and see if that fixes the problem. *Blade Replacement*

If these actions have not resolved the difficulty, then Nutribullet problems, you may want to contact customer service for help!

Why Won’t My NutriBullet Work?

The NutriBullet is often impacted by either open or closed airtight containers, the addition of too much liquid, and added oil if you are trying to make a smoothie without any fruits.NutriBullet failures come in three types: the blender, the blades within, or NutriBullet leaking. If your nutribullet is leaking, make sure that the lid and seal are both adequately seated.

Blender Issues

The Blender Stops Working Midway Through

If your Nutribullet starts to work and then stops as you blend, there are a few possible reasons. One is that the appliance may be too old and worn for use. Another reason could be that wires have been exposed, which poses a safety risk. We recommend turning off the power source and discontinuing use if this occurs because these are significant issues with severe implications for user safety.

The internal components of your NutriBullet are held in place by screws. To check which parts may be stripped and need replacing, you’ll have to remove the casing. This infographic will show you how to troubleshoot your NutriBullet.



To preserve the longevity of your NutriBullet, don’t place the machine itself in the dishwasher. Other pieces such as cup rings, lids, and cups may be laundered in a dishwasher with no adverse effects.

Additionally, ensure the NutriBullet is plugged in and working correctly. Not every problem is the same: some are rooted in a faulty motor or power chord.

Blade Issues

The Blades May Only Partially Cut Food

If the NutriBullet sounds like it’s on and you hear the blades but only see a little bit of food coming out, here are some tips. The motor may not be working well.

Try removing the blade assembly and checking for any obstructions in the blades, as this could mean a blockage or faulty wiring. Sometimes your Nutribullet might need to be reset by unplugging it from both outlets before plugging it back into one to see if that fixes the problem. If you have determined that there are no problems with your Nutribullet when running on low power levels, try switching between high and low power levels until you find which is best at cutting food without sending pieces flying out of the blender container.

The Blades Won’t Cut at All

When the NutriBullet doesn’t work, even though it looks like the pulverizers are still moving, there could be an underlying issue. Let’s get a peek at some things that might be going on here together now.

– The nutribullet is too full.

– Items are blocking the blades inside.

– The Nutribullet has lost power or been unplugged from its electrical outlet and needs to be reset by plugging it back in, turning off the power before you plug it into a new outlet if both are dead, or replacing the blade assembly if that’s what’s causing your machine to stop working correctly.

You Put Too Much Food In

It’s important to only fill the Nutribullet cup up to the recommended line, or else there’s a chance it could result in your food not being adequately chopped.

Blenders are designed for chopping up the foods but not liquefy them, so if they go overboard with liquids and oils, then you may end up with a smoothie that’s too chunky.

You Put The Wrong Foods In

The NutriBullet is a blender that is best for chopping softer foods like fruits and vegetables. It can also be applied to process fluids together. Heavy solids may be too much for the NutriBullet. The blades get jammed and can’t turn, so it shuts off.

The Blades Are Jammed Up

Not cleaning the blades between uses can cause food debris to build up. This causes insufficient power and performance when it comes time for service. Cleaning the edges will stop this from happening to improve their functionality.

The Blade Motor Won’t Work

If something’s wrong with your NutriBullet, it will be an issue with the motor. You might have been pressing down on the lid too long to get a smoothie or shake. When using the NutriBullet, make sure you blend in suitable increments of time. It is advised to go one-minute intervals and to stop when mixing for that period.

If your nutribullet has stopped working, it might be because the internal components are stripped. The nutribullet is made of many parts that can all wear down and need replacing at some point in time. In order to check which factors may be damaged, you’ll have to remove the casing on your machine. When doing this, make sure not to lose any screws along with other small pieces by using a container or tray for storage before removing anything from inside. If there isn’t an issue with your blades, then maybe something else could be gone wrong, like the motor or power cord; we’ll get into more detail about these below!

Leakage Issues

A leaky, messy NutriBullet may be a sign of trouble. There are five potential problems that could cause the blender to make such a mess:

1) The sealing ring is cracked or knackered and needs replacing.



2) One or more gaskets have come loose and need reattaching.



3) A seal has given way due to age (which usually happens after two years).

4) Excessive overuse has led to wear on the housing, causing leaks in the seams where silicone meets metal.

5) The blades are being incorrectly installed in their place—a process which should always take about 30 seconds at most–, and they’ve begun scraping against any crevices they can find, which damages the nutribullet and leads to leaks.

Overfilled NutriBullet

One potential downside of a too-full blender is that it continuously strains the blades. You may also experience food or liquid overflow.

NutriBullet Cracks

Beware of cracks in the exterior or interior space of your blender. Attempts, while not necessary to cause breakage, can lead liquid through the cracked area and result in replacement parts for your NutriBullet.

Extractor Blade Seal Damage

If your NutriBullet has a rubber seal below the extractor blade, this may be breaking down due to overuse or carelessness. The result is that the extractor blade can’t attach well to the cup, leaving you prone to leakage.

Loose Extractor Blade

A less common issue you might experience with a NutriBullet is if the blade doesn’t attach securely. You may need to replace this part instead of starting from scratch, so check the threads and screw in tighter before using it again.


How Do You Fix a Jammed NutriBullet?

Upon examining the NutriBullet more closely, it was clear that jamming had happened between the container jar latch and rim. This occurs when the plastic activators on your NutriBullet become too worn down or if they do not sit properly in their brackets.

Your NutriBullet won’t activate if the activators are sunken down. Press on each of them, and they may budge, creating a better seal with the cup.

If they don’t move, you need to use:

1 tablespoon white vinegar OR apple cider vinegar (or whichever type you have)

1 teaspoon virgin or olive oil

2 cups hot water (~195 degrees Fahrenheit)

Retry your activation; it should work this time!

If you can’t activate the activators on your NutriBullet, you will need to try and repeat the process. If you are still having issues even after repeating the process twice, then it might be time to contact Nutribullet customer service. They should be able to send a replacement set of activators for your device if this is needed.

Why Is My NutriBullet Blinking?

The NutriBullet strives to notify you when there is an issue with the device. For example, before operating your NutriBullet, make sure that it is aligned and clear of any obstructions; if so, then you will see a green power light. If this does not illuminate or if you have chosen the wrong lid for your blender on purpose, then press the Power button on top of your NutriBullet and push down all tabs at once until they click in place.

Power the light blinking? Don’t ignore it. A power light flashing indicates there is a problem that needs to be addressed quickly. Verify that the cups are locked in place and try again, or contact NutriBullet customer service for troubleshooting.


Blenders are amazing—unless something goes wrong. Occasionally, the blades stop spinning or get dull. If the blender fails in mid-recipe, rubber seals can deteriorate over time and leak air that impacts performance.

In order to maintain a functional blender for years of use, try following some simple steps:

– Keep blades clean before and after each use in order to avoid jamming or other damage. Wash them by dropping hot water over them while spinning them around with a cloth rag until food debris is removed. Then dry off thoroughly by wiping away any excess moisture with another towel or paper towel. Don’t forget about crevices!
