Stir Tower Troubleshooting

Possible Solutions

Food not being stirred, or sticking to the side of the pot

For most cooking, use only the flip-and-stir wand. For larger quantities or foods like soups and stews, use both stirring attachments together.

Motor shutting off

The stirring motor has built-in thermal overload protection. If food is too thick or heavy, try selecting a slower speed, or prepare a smaller quantity.

Stir arm won’t lock into place

If the stirring arm does not go all the way down, rotate the attachments slightly before lowering the arm. Be sure that the stirring arm is aligned with the pouring spout.
