How many blades 4or 6?
Hello Doug Smith,
Please click through the below link to see the details of the PB9800 blades, page 11:
Hi we purchased this but the feature under the jug which says rotate to unlock which is to disessemble the blade was completely stuck and wouldn’t budge, we got a replacement and same problem. I really like the blender but no idea why we are not able to unscrew the blade. We asked 2 different people in the shop to try with no luck and my husband wasn’t able either. Is this a common problem with some of the stock?
I am interested to know the answer to this question. This is our second blender over the years and have always had the same issue. I am really frustrated because we purchased the second one just over 12 months ago and now it is out of warranty. I cannot unscrew it and the jug is leaking everywhere.
I have a Sunbeam Cafe Series blender 1200 watt. I need to buy a replacement jug as the handle is separating from the jug body. But I need to know the model number to make sure I buy the right one. Can anyone tell me where I can find the model number on the blender?
Looking for replacement jug plus blade lid
If the blender is leaking, how do I unscrew it?
Hello, bought the Sunbeam cafe series blender PB9800 a week ago, but today when we try to make our breakfast drink all the lights are flashing. My wife wants to know what I did wrong. Please help before I get killed by my irate wife again.
Do the pre program function lights stay on when not in use but plugged into power outlet or can they be turned off without disconnecting power cord.
The lights will remain lit if the blender is plugged into a switched on power source to indicate that the machine has power and that blades will spin when buttons are pushed. Just as a safety precaution, to indicate that the unit is on.
I have this blender but wondering if it's possible to buy a food processor attachment that can fit on this?
Hello Glenn H.
Unfortunately, no there is no food processor attachment for this blender.
SUNBEAM STICK BLENDER ESM100 When I switch the blender on there is a light flashing inside for a bit. Is that normal? It looks a bit scary...

Is the O ring in the blade assembly replaceable ? [PB9800]
Hi Taffy 52,
Thank you for contacting Sunbeam. The 'O' ring in the blade assembly is not a separate part. It is with the whole blade. The part number is PB98002. Parts are available from the following online agents - please place the model number in the search engine to see a full list and photos. It pays to check the pricing and compare.

Our Sunbeam Cafe Series Blender Motor Coupler metal teeth has broken, as it was made out of plastic. Any idea how to replace it the coupler? I have managed to source a replacement part with metal teeth.
Ive found metal freagments in my banana smoothie after making the smoothie with the Sunbeam Cafe Series blender, ive made a U Tube clip documenting the problem. Sunbeam Australia CST doesnt seem to be taking the issue seriously.Has anyone found this to be the case? contact me on [email removed] dated 15/5/2018 , regards Phil
I absolutely love my Blender - I have had it for a few years now it is makes amazingly smooth soups - it has only just started leaking from underneath and the measuring cup on the top has broken the bits that hold it to the lid. I rang Sunbeam and the lovely lady there is sending me a new measuring cup for free - she put me on to my nearest repairer in Nowra that is 4 hours from us (being in the Country). The lady there was amazingly lovely and sold me a replacement blade yesterday - today it arrived!! I am super impressed with the after sales service and my blender. Even though it is now requiring replacements at least I don’t need to buy an entire new blender. Just not sure how to get this blade out - have never un done it before - seems very stuck!!! Not sure if I am meant to unscrew the little Allen key screw or try to unscrew the big bolt??
I did remove the blade - but I can’t remember how sorry. I THINK that I was trying to remove the major part of it but only needed to unscrew or unwind a smaller part of the blade - hope that helps?? If you figure it - write it up lol!! But I do think I was trying to remove the whole blade part but perhaps I did end just using the smaller screw with the Allen key.
Hi Heidi C,
Thank you for contacting Sunbeam. To resolve this, the blade assembly needs to be replaced. To remove the current blade, please place a towel or matt on the bench top. Place the blender jug up-side-down and turn the large dark locking nut to wind it off. Apply pressure on the bottom of the blade and push it through. It can be stubborn but easy to do.

I Need to change the motor coupling on a pb9800, can find no information on this model to be able to do this?
is there a web site or like that can provide me with this info?
how to change the blade?
Is the sunbeam café series 1200w model decent?
It is....the only "fault" which many others have experienced is the blade comes loose whilst blending....leaking the fluids out...although this seem to have been rectified with the new blade assembly that was sent to me.
Thank you for contacting us.

My blender is only fairly new only made a few smoothies in it and now the locking nut is stuck to the top of the blender! Have removed the blade and jug but the other part will not come off! And it means the jug doesnt fit on properly now and leaks out everywhere! How do i get it off? I dont have the receipt :(

As the manufacture, we can also still help you out without the receipt depending on the date of manufacturing.
For those who had the rust liquid leaking, does Sunbeam provide replacement parts if it's just out of warranty? I bought mine just over 12 months ago (in Jan 2014) and have never cleaned the blender in the dishwasher.
Here is Australia the part is not in stock so various places I have tried to buy it all contacted me to say it would not be available from Sunbeam for weeks.
I very much doubt they will replace the blade assembly under warranty.
It costs about $60 to get a new one from them when they have it.
It is definitely the blade assembly that leaks from its bearings under the jug -
though at first I thought it was coming out of the motor.
I have upgraded to a real blender http://www.froothie.com.au/store/froothie-blenders/optimum-9400
I doubt it. Cost Sunbeam too much. They should have put better parts in it in the first place, especially considering the cost.
I had the same problem, bought a red PB9800 in 2013, about a year ago it started leaking oil as described by others on this page. I rang Sunbeam, they wouldn't give me a new one as my blender was out of warranty. Why don't we all try a class action, if we all contact Sunbeam complaining about the $200 Blender that leaks oil after a year of use, they will have to do something about it.
