Hi, I picked up a Professional HD 475 watt blender. Having never used one and not having a manual on it (it is a used blender) is there anything, other than not dunking it in water, that I should be aware of?
Also, it makes kind of a whrrrr noise when using it, is that normal? It is louder than a hand-held blender. I have only used it to mix up some bread dough, so far. It is a refurbished RKG25H0X MC (model). I tried finding a manual for it online, but couldn't.

Thanks for reading

Don't buy one.

Mine died while making soup from non-dense, non-heavy ingredients. The twirling mechanism fused with the base, IIRC. Whirlpool wanted me to pay them $25 to mail me a shipping container to mail the blender back to them even though I still had the original box, manual, packing materials.

Never again.

That's a mixer, not a blender. The KA mixers are heavy and prone to walking off the counter. Noisy. I got rid of mine because I could no longer easily lift it out of the cabinet and onto a work surface. Replaced it with a $200 Bosch mixer NEW. MUCH BETTER MIXER. Weighs about 5 lbs instead of 40, does a better job on EVERYTHING from meringue to bread dough. My KA mixer would get hot and shut down due to overheating on low load. My much cheaper Bosch barely gets warm if you load it up with a full load of bread dough. Contact Kitchenaid, they should be able to provide you with a scanned copy of the manual.

Had one of those or a similar one. It died after about 5 years of good use by the daughters. The only problem I had was a bad case of food poisoning when my daughter neglected to properly clean the blades on time. That's not a good experience. Make sure it's clean!!!
