My thermomix is squeaking
« on: August 08, 2011, 04:09:26 am »
Hi
I have had my thermomix for a month & yesterday  I noticed that when I use speed 1 or 2 it starts making a sqeaking sound, there was only water in the bowl as I was using the varoma I pulled the bowl apart & gave it a good clean but later that night when I was again using the varoma for dinner it started again. I tried it this morning with nothing in the bowl & on speed 1 & 2 it makes this sound when I turn it to 3 it stops. I was wondering if anyone else has encountered this problem? I am going to contact my consultant today, but the thought of having to be without my thermie is just too much  :(

This thread may be of some interest to you maxxie.
I get different noises at different speeds but don't take much notice of it anymore.  As long as it is working OK, I'm happy.

Thanks JD, I have spoken to my consultant & she is going to look into it for me. I think I might try a bit of oil like suggested & see if that works.

Mine is doing the same thing! I have only noticed it since it came back from HO (the white cover/casing had fine cracks in it. It was replaced with no problems as it is still under warranty). I haven't rung up about the squeaks yet, as I don't want to be without my TMX for a few days again. If we put the oil in where suggested, does this void the warranty or anything???

Anyone solved this one I have had my TM since May and now it squeaks on speed 2/3 as described by others.
When something squeaks  it means there is a problem.  On other machines it suggests a bearing or lubrication issue.
I am going to contact HO tomorrow.

I've had squeaks in the past but haven't noticed any for a while now - have never oiled mine.

Mine used to make a sort of squeak on speed 4 but it stopped.

OK HO have agreed to replace the blade unit. When the unit is not in the TM and you rotate it by hand it can be heard squeaking. This does certainly suggest a bearing issue.

Scarey. Wise to have it replaced before it presents a problem.
