Operating the KitchenAid Blender

The KitchenAid blender will operate in two different
operating modes: Continuous mode and pulse mode.
Continuous Operation
Continuous operation of the blender is accomplished by
pushing a "MODE" pad on the blender's control panel.
Place one of your hands on top of the jar lid and press
one of the speed pads with your other hand.
NOTE: A short delay reaching the selected speed is
normal due to the soft start feature. The blender should
run and an indicator light for the selected speed will
come on.
You can check all the speeds by pressing either a
higher or lower speed, without stopping the Motor.
To turn the blender off, press the "O" pad. The "O" pad
will stop any speed and deactivate the blender at the
same time.
Always deactivate the blender by pressing the "O" pad
and unplugging the power cord before removing the
blender jar.
Pulse Operation
Activate the "Pulse At Any Speed" feature by pressing
the "PULSE" pad. You will hear a click, and the indicator
light above the pad will blink, indicating that the blender
is activated.
Place one of your hands on top of the jar lid and press
one of the desired speed pads with your other hand for
the desired pulse time.
NOTE: A short delay reaching the selected speed is
normal due to the soft start feature.
To turn the pulse feature off, just press the "O" pad. The
blender is now ready for continuous operation.
