Blender Smelling Like Smoke

just making a normal shake, noticed there was a huge amount of friction in the rotating blade because it sounded like it was grating against something. then smelled like smoke, so i guess i need a new blender.

is there anything special about blenders i should know before i buy another, or any recommendations?

washing it might help

I saw that on tv, looked fun, but small.

I use my magic bullet a couple times a day…
the smoke smell is most likely the motor burning out… I had a cheap blender before and the design of it made it that the heat stayed in the motor… it couldnt get out fast enough… took about 3 weeks for it to die…

I’ve had the magic bullet for half a year now and it hasnt started to smell yet…

The Magic Bullet is convenient but very small. I like my shakes more watery, so I need to use 1 scoop of Metabolic Drive per shake, twice per meal. Otherwise pretty good performance thus far.

i think mine is pretty high quality-vitablend?
did oyu use your blender when it was dying down; is it safe to do so?

last thin i want is a blender’s circuitry exploding on me and still didnt blend fully.

It could be a bearing that sh-- the bed on you from the sound you describe. If you can take it apart, appliance stores stock parts for the more popular brands.

smoke smell means that the electronics are f*cked up.
