Zeddasked

9400 1st Generation

There is no clear answer here regarding use of the pulse switch, please clarify. I have read in the online manual that the Pulse switch does not function without the unit being switched on
(‘a safety feature’).
However, the Pulse switch on the unit I have (1st gen 9400) will switch it immediately to ultra high speed regardless of whether the other switch is on or off. Is this in fact normal?

Hey Zedd, thank you for your patience. The technician did get back to me and mentioned that this depends on the model. Because the newer models have different safety features compared to older models from 2014 for example. To be able to advise further it would be great if you can email us at support@froothie.com.au :) Have a great day!

9400 1st Generation

Hi I have one of these first Gen. 9400 blenders. I noticed the jug has a recycling indicator on it a tiny triangle made up of 3 arrows chasing each other. This is cast into the jug on manufacture to inform which type of material it’s made of. On my one it has a ‘7’ which does not indicate that it’s BPA free but rather that it is amongst the type best avoided in food preparation appliances.
I,m curious as the instruction manual clearly states BPA free?

9400

What is the difference between an Optimum 9400 and 9400 2nd generation? The first one is the older version. As I only have the serial number as reference - can you tell me which version I have? 16030311 and the number of the jug is: 940025439. I need this information in order to sort out which 2L jug I should order as a replacement. Thank you.

Hey Alex,
Alex from Froothie International here
If your blender has 2 switches and a speed dial on the front it will be gen Optimum 9400 1st generation and if it has only 1 big dial in the middle which has all the functions on it this is the 2nd generation.
Hope this helps

Hi Froothie,
With your 9400 refurbished machines what warranty do they come with. I see jug, bearings and blades need replacing at differing intervals. Are these covered? What generation are the refurbished blenders on the market now?

Hi there,

I have an Optimum 9400 first gen about 6 years old and am on my second jug and blade assembly. Had to replace the first a few years back as it was leaking underneath and producing a rusty fluid and now the second jug is doing the same. Is this able to be fixed and how would I go about this? Not wanting to pay $160 for a new jug every couple of years when it starts to rusts and leak. Thanks

Hi Morgan, Froothie has a lifetime warranty on the Optimum 9400 gen 1 I bought about 8 years ago. My blade assembly leaked recently and was replaced with a new one free of charge if you can show that you have used your equipment in the manner intended by answering a few questions. Have you tried contacting your place of purchase and asked for a replacement?

I previously posted re brown powder but after reading other posts perhaps it is from the blade bearings. My machine is an Optimum 9400 serial number is 14020839. and is probably 6 years old. I have not had any problems previous to this can someone advise what I need to do. I think it is first gen.

Hi. My second blade assembly for my 9400 first gen is leaking and rusting again.
Have these issues been fixed with the replacement jugs now? $90 to replace the full blade assembly because of a faulty seal and obviously not stainless steel components is a bit ridiculous again. Got that bad the last time the bearing seized. Just leaking rusty goo again now. Hopefully thats not going into my smoothy!

I have an Optimum 9400 at least 5 years old so I'm assuming geneation 1 as it has the controls on a front panel. My question relates to the new Jug for this and the compatibility for the jugs across generations . It is a 1500W model Serial Number: 13121415 SGS- 130927 - EA. Please clarify before I order and quote the cost of delivery to NZ. Many thanks

Hello Ishram, you will need the original 9400 jug set, which you can find here: https://www.froothie.co.nz/store/product-accessories/blender-accessories/jug-2l-9400 Your 9400 model is not compatible with the G2.6/9400A model jugs. The delivery fee is $19. Hope that helps :)

Update. I have had very positive assistance from Froothie, they are paying for my unit to be sent for repair.
Hi,
I have the optimum 9400a, only purchased 5 months ago, it has stopped working properly.
It will only work in very short spurts when using the pulse.
I have tried the reset button many times, with power off and on.
I have sent an email via your website about this problem but yet to receive a response.
I use basically everyday, can you please assist.
Thanks been great support.

Hi Noreen. Sorry to hear about the problems you're having with the 9400. I am not associated with Optimum and not sure why I'm getting these emails. However, being only 5 months old it will be under warranty so get in touch with Foothie. I'm sure they will sort you out.

Mine started to give off a burning smell after less than 2 years. Before that, the spinning was getting erratic. Unfortunately, I'm not in Australia and am not getting any support. Service support can take months before replying and then they email you every week to ask for all kinds of details. If you're still in Australia, just wait for their response.

Hey Noreen, very surprised you did not get a reply as we usually respond to all inquiries within 24 hours. Can you call me directly on 03 8609 2210? My name is Francois, I am the general manager

You can also email me at francois@froothie.com.au or my colleague at andrea@froothie.de and we will attend to your faulty blender ASAP

I will also investigate why your email was missed. Did you check your spam folder?

Hi
We havent used our machine for a while but it looks like the blade has seized inside the jug. Can I just replace the blade or do I need to buy a whole new jug?
Abby

Lance S.

Hi Abby,
You're quite right, the bearing seal has failed and allowed liquids into the bearing and so it has seized. This happened to me some time ago and Froothie sent me a new one free of charge. Either way you'll have to contact them for another. Just use the supplied plastic 'spanner' to unscrew the black plastic retainer under the jug. To ensure less chance of this happening again I never leave fluids in the jug, emptying it as soon as I've finished. If you are a little bit handy (and careful) you can remove the dome nut holding the blades together and sharpen them using a file or stone and transforms the blender into a 'beast' (well...it's a lot more efficient least). :)
Hope this is of some help

Yes the jugs fit a Vitamix, all the classic series, both the tall jug and the single serve jug fit just fine . Recently they have found a biochef vacuum jug can be used to turn the Vitamix into a vacuum blender ... seems a lot of high speed blender containers fit on a Vitamix..lol
