Dry milling
Please note that milling hard ingredients like spices, nuts, sugar, coffee, grains, etc will cause scratching and clouding to the inside surfaces of the jug. This is a cosmetic result from milling these kinds of ingredients, and does not affect the performance of the jug. Avoid over-processing spices though. Essential oils found in spices when combined with heat can damage the jug surface. This blending chart should be used as a guide only.

PROBLEM 

Motor doesn’t start or blade doesn’t rotate

EASY SOLUTION

  • Check the blender jug and lid are securely in place.
  • Check that the power plug is properly inserted into the power outlet.
  • Check the ON | OFF button and selected function button is illuminated.

Food is unevenly chopped

EASY SOLUTION

  •  Use the Tamper when blending to help move the ingredients around.
  •  Reduce the speed so the blades have more chance of grabbing the food
  • This can happen when too much food is being blended at one time. Try a smaller amount, and work in batches if necessary.
  • The ingredients may be too large. Try cutting into smaller pieces. For best results, ingredients should be in pieces no larger than 2cm.

Food is chopped too fine or is watery

EASY SOLUTION

  • Try blending for shorter period of time or slower speeds.
  • Use the ICE CRUSH | PULSE function for better control.

Food sticks to blade and jug

EASY SOLUTION

  •  The mixture may be too thick. Try adding more liquid and/or using a slower speed for blending

Food stuck under blades

EASY SOLUTION

  • To remove any food that cannot easily be scraped out from under the blades, replace lid and turn blender back on high speed for 4–5 seconds to spin foods out from under blades.

Blender overloaded

EASY SOLUTION

  • This blender has a motor protection feature to protect against over heating and/or over current use. When activated OVERLOAD PROTECTION will flash on the LCD and the blender will be inoperable.
  • If activated, turn the blender off by pressing the ON | OFF button on the control panel, switch of at the wall and unplug the blender. Wait a few minutes then re-plug and power ON the blender.
  •  If OVERLOAD PROTECTION is still flashing, repeat and leave the blender to cool down for at least 20–30 minutes. Once OVERLOAD PROTECTION has disappeared from the screen the blender is ready to be used again.
  • We recommend blending in smaller batches, or cutting ingredients into smaller pieces.

Sage Super Q Blender User Guide  & troubleshooting 13Care & Cleaning

Sage Super Q Blender User Guide  & troubleshooting 14WARNING

Oils in citrus rind can damage the material of your jug and personal blender cup if being exposed to it for a longer period. Always clean your blender jug and personal blender cup immediately after processing citrus rind.

Motor base
To clean the motor base, wipe with a soft, damp cloth then dry thoroughly. Wipe any excess food particles from the power cord.

Cleaning agents
Do not use abrasive scouring pads or cleaners on either the motor base or the jug, as they may scratch the surface. Use only warm soapy water with a soft cloth.

Dishwasher
The blender jug , personal blender cup, personal blender blade system, tamper, scraper and all lids can be washed in the dishwasher on a standard wash cycle. Jug can be placed on the bottom shelf, however the personal blender cup and lids should be on the top shelf only

Stubborn food stains and odours
Strong smelling foods such as garlic and fish, and some vegetables such as carrots, may leave an odour or stain

2 Litre jug
To remove, clean the jug and lid using the CLEAN instructions. Add 2 tablespoons bicarbonate of soda and ½ cup (125mL) vinegar into jug and let the mixture froth for 1 minute. Scrub the jug and lid with the mixture using a soft dishwashing brush. Add 2 cups warm water and allow to stand for 5 minutes. Attach jug to blender base. Secure lid and then press the CLEAN button. Thoroughly rinse the jug, and allow to air dry. Store jug and lid with the lid off to allow air to circulate.

Personal blender cup
To remove, pour warm soapy water and fill to the MAX mark. Set aside to soak for 5 minutes. Then wash with a mild detergent and warm water, rinse well and dry thoroughly. Do not use the CLEAN function to remove stubborn stains and odours from your personal blender cup.

Dry milling
Milling hard ingredients like spices, nuts, sugar, coffee, grains, etc will cause scratching and clouding to the inside surfaces of the jug. Some spices and herbs release aromatic oils that may discolour the jug or leave an aroma. These are cosmetic results from milling these kinds of ingredients, and does not affect the performance of the jug.

Storage
Store your blender upright with the blender jug assembled on the motor base, or beside it. Store the personal blender cup with the blade system assembled. Do not place anything on top. To allow air to circulate, keep the lid off.
