Magimix Motor What is an Induction Motor?

An induction motor is a commonly used AC electric motor, especially in washing machines and industrial processes where the user needs longevity and reliability. Brushless motors have no gear box or belts ensuring longer service lives. They are cleaner and quieter because they do not have parts the rub or wear during use. Magimix has always boasted an industrial-grade, direct-drive induction motor, the type that automatically adjusts its power to the task in hand. The motor is guaranteed for 30 years*. The original R1, in family use, have so far lasted for more than 50 years.

Pencil Test 

You can test your Magimix Motor Base, without any bowls or attachments -

SEE You tube video 

  1. Plug in the machine and turn on at the wall, push the ON / Auto button
  2. From the ON button go up and across the top and you will see a round hole, keeping hands away from the Spindle, push a pencil in the little hole and the Machine should start.
  3. When the Bowls and lids are put together, off the machine, the bowl rod should come out of the bottom of the handle (this is the same as sticking a pencil in the hole) if the rod does not come out, the lid or bowl maybe broken, (or in XL models you have not put the pusher in the XL lid).      


A start capacitor alters the current to one or more winding of a single phase A.C. Induction motor to create a rotating magnetic field. If your motor is just Humming and not going round, it could be the start capacitor.  You may need a service agent or competent person to change.
