Cannot change time or temperature settings on Auto-IQ® programs.

All programs were developed by culinary experts to deliver the perfect balance of heating, stirring, and blending patterns to give perfect results, so you do not have to set the time or temperature.

To select a specific temperature, use the Manual COOK setting instead of an Auto-iQ program.

Program has paused.

If the lid was removed while running a program or while in a Manual mode, the cooking or blending function will pause. Replace the lid and push the program button again to continue from where the time left off

Why does the blender sometimes count up and other times count down?

Auto-iQ programs are timed to finish on their own when they are complete, so the clock counts down until the program has finished. When using Manual modes, the clock will count up from 0 until the auto shutoff time is reached or the button for the currently running mode is selected again.

My pitcher will not assemble to the base

Make sure the Ninja® logo is facing forward before placing the pitcher directly onto the blender base. If the pitcher is still not fully seated, rotate the coupling under the pitcher to help align it to the base.

Pitcher still has residue after running the Clean program.

Try running the CLEAN program a second time. You may also hand-wash the pitcher using the included cleaning brush, which is specifically designed to clean those hard-to-reach areas.

The control panel returns to home display.

The control panel is designed to return to standby mode when left inactive for 3 minutes. If you have taken longer than 3 minutes to choose a function, or if the program has finished, the unit will return to standby mode.

Why does the unit beep during Auto-iQ Programs?

We’ve incorporated STIR ALERT within all Auto-iQ programs to let you know the unit is about to stir. The alert is 3 beeps followed by a 2-second pause before each stir.
