Dial Light is Flashing - Torrent™ Blender

Understanding the Blender Flash Codes

IMPORTANT: The Blender will not operate at any speed unless the START/PAUSE button is pressed first.

Dial LED is flashing slowly - Ready Mode.

If the LED slowly glows with increasing intensity and then is off, the Blender is ready for blending. Press the START/PAUSE button to start blending.

LED is flashing rapidly - Error Mode

If the LED flashes on/off in rapid bursts, the Blender is not ready for blending. The most common reasons include :

  • Pitcher is not properly in place.
  • Pitcher was removed before blending was completed.
  • Blender is jammed.

First, rotate the knob to “OFF/O.” Next, make sure the pitcher is properly in place. Then, choose your selection and press the START/PAUSE button. If Blender is jammed, it will stop running to avoid damage to the motor. Press START/ PAUSE, then unplug the power cord. Remove the pitcher from the base, and with a scraper, free the blades by breaking up or removing the contents at the bottom of the pitcher. To restart, rotate the knob to the “OFF/O” position, rotate to knob selection, and press START/PAUSE.

LED is not flashing

If the LED does not flash after a setting is selected, the Blender is not ready for blending. The most common reasons include:

  • Blender is in “sleep mode.”
  • Blender has been unplugged, or a power outage has occurred.

The Blender may have gone into an inactive mode or “Sleep Mode.” This feature saves power if the Blender is left unattended for a few minutes. Resetting the dial to “OFF/O” brings the Blender back into “Active Mode.” First, rotate the knob to “OFF/O.” Next, make sure the pitcher is properly in place. Then, choose your selection and press the START/PAUSE button. If the Blender still does not work, see below for further information on correcting the operation error.
