    In that step on my case, because of leaks it sticked to the base. I had to use a bit more force and I rotated left right until it loosed a bit. I think some kind of alcohol can help as well.

    I'm missing one of the 3 activators. How can it be replaced? Called customer care and was told they do not sell the activator caps and I would have to buy the entire motor base for $50. I just need one little plastic activator! Any suggestions?

    reneemccown - Antwort

    That does not make me feel confident. One of my activators stopped working, so I can't even push the container on to activate it. not happy with maybe having to buy the whole machine again.

    the_journeyman333 - Antwort

    One activator stopped working and I can’t blend. This happened to mine and I didn’t use it that much. I won’t buy another one. Thanks.

    regina cross - Antwort

    Has anyone been able to buy an activator in the UK? if so where can I get one?

    iva - Antwort

    You may wish to take note of the way that some of the pieces are aligned during dis-assembly to make re-assembly easier. Two items in particular: the two plastic sleeves have to be replaced in such a way that the air vents are aligned and the base needs to be oriented in a way that allows for the securing of the power cable so that it is out of the fan’s way. Thanks!

    A simple cleaning of the activators with hot water may fix the problem of activators blocked !

    Frederic Houlez - Antwort

    I was very optimistic when I found these detailed instructions to repair the activators. Very clear and easy to follow, but alas… See the three plastic nubs that the activator attaches to with the two screws? They seem to be very weak spots. One of mine snapped off, and once that happens, I’m not sure there is any solution. Any ideas? A potential waste of a good motor. I wonder if this is a “designed to fail” kind of thing.

    Gis - Antwort

    I have the same problem. Did you manage to fix it? It yes, how?

    roangel17 - Antwort

    To everyone who is looking a replacement activator (the small green part), I was able to REPAIR the activator itself. Once you take off the green component (after step #13), you can actually open up the green component. The small metal tab will fall out, so don’t lose it, you will put it back in later. The small black button may also fall out, so don’t lose that either. The problem in my case was that the switch was stuck. I used a small screwdriver to wiggle the little metal piece inside until it snapped back into place. When you depress the internal metal piece, it should make a “clicking” noise, and the metal tab should connect the circuit (red wire to black wire). Once that is working again you can reassemble it carefully and make sure you still hear the clicking noise.

    Not sure if this link will work or not but I took a photo https://photos.app.goo.gl/kj5Cdz13cE4yQC...

    If you read the label on the component you can find replacement, mine said “donghai kw4-3z-3a”. https://www.ebay.com/itm/392605448299

    Caleb Gruber - Antwort

    One of my green switches (micro-switch) had frozen stuck and wasn’t clicking (switching). I was about to pry it apart when I thought, why not try to just force it, see if it frees up? It did. I pressed down on the metal tab with my finger, levering down on that little black button. After trying that about 3 or 4 times it freed up and returned to its original state (where it clicks like its supposed to).

    Try this before either giving up or committing to prying it open.

  15. Open up the green switch. The metal tab and black button will fall out. Fiddle around with the metal switch on the inside to snap it back into place and then reassemble carefully. It should make a clicking noise.

Seems to be almost complete info, however, where and how do I get the replacement parts?

Thank you!

Love&Peace!

Could you please let me know where I might be able to obtain replacement activators? Mind broke when cleaning the machine.

Ron - Antwort

Thank you. I would have went nuts looking for the screw under the rubber pieces. Would have probably destroyed the whole machine.

Joe Bailey - Antwort

Thanks for the demonstration!

D S Jones - Antwort

Perfect! Nice little machine that can still be serviced, unlike most of what is made today.

cward6681 - Antwort

Thank you for this guide! So happy to have fixed it myself and gave my bullet a nice cleaning in the process :)

hanna.parka - Antwort

Excellent guide - thanks. Our nutribullet was incredibly stiff and hard to operate... taking it apart allowed me to properly clean it and now it works perfectly.

*** NOTE: be careful when reassembling as there is a specific orientation of the outer casing. Refer back to the position of the plug housing in step 1. I assumed the housing could go on any way and had to take it apart again. ***

Matt McCourty - Antwort

Thank you! I was able to fix the activator, with was stuck on all of the filth inside. They really should improve these blenders, so the smoothies do not drip and collect in the motor and everything else. It works great now, but what a disgusting experience... I plugged the little draining hole up. Eew

tcaraujo6 - Antwort

An easier solution is to turn the bullet upside down in a shallow bowl of boiling water. This will release the gunk in the activators. Do this until the activators are unstuck.

This is likely a stopgap solution but I prefer it!

Karen - Antwort

Note that in most case actuator replacement is not required, they jam due to liquids dropping into them (a pretty poor design if you ask me). Upside down into shallow hot water, or even a small shot of WD 40 will do the job. Fix the actuators otherwise you will break the tabs on the recipients.

Robert Courteau - Antwort

Hi, in my case the base of the activator is the one that broke which as a consequence i will have to change the complete activator.

Does anyone knows where can I buy the activators?

Ed David - Antwort

One piece of advice: Take a sharpie pen and match-mark each piece to the one it mates with as you disassemble the unit so you can put the pieces back in the same orientation. Orientation matters for the power cord to end up in the right spot relative to the bracket that secures the wires. Also take a photo of the wires before taking the bracket apart so you can remind yourself of how they went. That is not shown too well in the photos included in the instructions above.

I was nearly in tears after my intense workout then being unable to make my smoothie for breakfast this morning!! The hot water worked perfectly!!

Debi Jattan - Antwort

Excellent explanation, thanks. I had tried cleaning and lubricating the activators without luck. This process cleared the blockage and it now works.

de_bouchi - Antwort

A+! Thanks. Your directions and the comments were spot on. Where do I get a badge?

keltonj - Antwort

When I called Nutribullet they said they do not sell the actuator part.

Debra - Antwort

I am still struggling to find an activator in the UK -can someone help me with a supplier’s telephone no or address

iva - Antwort

Just for information: My Nutibullet only had two actuators - the third one was a dummy with no switch on it. The problem I had was that the plastic holder for one of the actuators had broken so the whole assembly was moving and therefore not switching. The assembly was reattached securely using a slightly thicker and longer self tapping screw sand washers plus a couple of strategically positioned tie wraps for additional support. Really badly designed actuator holders with a couple of weak points and screws that only just engage so don’t overtighten the screws or they will just pop out of the holes they screw into. Not sure how long the repair will last or how long it will be before the second actuator holder fails. Invaluable advice above to take photos of the inside whilst dismatling and the mark the pieces to help alignment when reassembling.

Can you make one with Nutri Bullet Select 10 Piece 1000W N9C-0907 ?

Thank You,  I would like to know where can I get Activators to replace them ?

carlos Isaziga - Antwort

Were you be able to find activators?

sapna bajaj -

The explanation is very good… However I am unable to find a supplier for the actuator … Thus ultimately not useful to know how it CAN be done …disappointed.

Andrew Watts - Antwort

Thank you! I was able to bring our NutriBullet back from the dead with your repair guide! As it turned out, one of the gray plastic clips that hold the actuators and switches had cracked, allowing the white pin that activates the microswitch to drift to the side. I was able to repair the little cracked tube that the white pin rides up and down by cleaning the crack with alcohol and gluing with superglue. The NutriBullet works like new again, with no need to add additional pressure to keep it going. Hopefully it will last a while longer.

Great little guide! My bullet is back to it old self. Thank you for being there for me.

this worked for me thx!

robertobruin - Antwort

I used this guide to re assemble after I took the nuribullet apart - I'm well pleased. In the past, after disassembling things, I’d normally end up with at least one screw left over and wondering where it was supposed to go. Thank you for the
