Stop using your handblender and unplug it from the power supply.
Unlock the removable blender shaft.
Check the model number as shown in the diagram (diagram not currently available).
If your handblender has a model number in the range shown then call the Kenwood Freephone Helpline - 0808 156 3200 for further advice.
No other Kenwood product is affected.
