My Philips blender is not working

Published on 27 January 2023
If your Philips Blender does not start, read our article for possible causes and solutions.

The power cord is not plugged to the socket

Please check that the power cord is correctly plugged to the socket.

The safety lock is locked

Your blender will not start working while the safety lock is locked. Please put the blender jar in the correct position so the built-in safety lock is unlocked.

For this, make sure you have turned the blender jar, mill, chopper or tumbler in clockwise all the way until a “click” sound is heard.

Both clips locked (HR2037/50 & HR2038/20)

Note: Information below apply only for models HR2037/50 and HR2038/20.

If both clips (image below) are not locked in place, your blender will not start working. Make sure that the clips on both sides of the lid are locked in position before use.

The overheat protection system was triggered

In this case, the overheat protection switched off your Philips Blender to prevent damage due to overheating. This can happen when processing ingredients that are too thick.

Please, switch off the blender and unplug it. Let it cool down at room temperature. Then you can plug it and switch it on again.

It could have a recognizable odor as a result, but do not worry about that, your Philips Blender is safe to use.

The rotary knob is not pointing to "OFF"

Note: Information below does not apply to models: HR2037/50, HR2038/20
Make sure the knob is pointing to “OFF” before you switch on the blender. After that, rotate it to the desired program.

If these steps have not solved the issue, please contact us for further assistance.
