The NutriBullet by the makers of Magic Bullet is a personal blender that is self-contained and simple to use. It includes an electric blender base with a number of attachments for the user and offers a healthy alternative to blending food by breaking down ingredients in their most nutritious states.

Why does the NutriBullet leak?

There is spillage coming from my NutriBullet.

Where exactly is it leaking?

crwdns2893770:0crwdnd2893770:0crwdne2893770:0

goes right through the base and out the bottom of the machine

I had a NurtiBullet RX for 2 months. Used it about 10 times and found leaking into the motor. I filled the plastic container with water and left it on counter. it did not leak. But when I put the motor cap on tight, it did leak. Not gushing out, but still had leaks. If it did for a new unit, I did not what to wait it out. I took it back immediately.

crwdns2893770:0crwdnd2893770:0crwdne2893770:0

No matter how much I tighten the motor cap on my small ninja it still leaks. What do I do? I like the machine for small smoothies with ice but am thinking of not using it any more due to th leaking and mess.

I called the company that makes NutriBullet and let them know this is my 2nd NB RX that leaks. It was still under warranty. They shipped a new base, the part with the blades to me. They wanted to charge shipping. of course I told them :you have to be kidding. So no shipping. Even if it is out of warranty, the large numbers of complaints with the SAME issue is on the net. A good company will make it right. I say call them and cc the BBB in the area of the home office. It's in CA. I'm not home so I do not recall the city right now. But the issue should be a fix so the newer models do not have this issue. I bought mine at Costo. Costo listens to customers. They will consider the complaints the next time the company wants Costco to sell them.Same with other good companies.

Try tightening the cup tighter to the base. If it continues to leak, you can easily slide off the rubber seal and replace it with a new one to create a new and lasting seal.

If your Magic Bullet NutriBullet continues to leak, see the NutriBullet Leaks problem page for possible causes and solutions.

What rubber seal would that be? Mine does not have one! I wonder if that is why it leaks!!

crwdns2893770:0crwdnd2893770:0crwdne2893770:0

Mine doesn't either!

crwdns2893770:0crwdnd2893770:0crwdne2893770:0

where to get the rubber gasket is the issue

crwdns2893770:0crwdnd2893770:0crwdne2893770:0

Mine does not have a rubber seal either maybe they improved them and the newer ones do have rubber seals. Going to bed bath and beyond to check them out today.

crwdns2893770:0crwdnd2893770:0crwdne2893770:0

the sealing gasket is exactly the same color as the cap - hard to see. I had to actually poke at it with something sharp to discover it. Either way, I replaced the gasket and it still leaks . I wonder if a new cup might be needed.

It shouldn't leak. It does! The problem is with the design. Turn something with liquid in it upside down with only a screw cap to seal it (and believe me, I've screwed it on as hard as I can) and apply a very strong force - the motor - it's going to leak.

This is a design fault. Unless Nutribullet come up with a better closing device, the obvious will occur!

I have tried it every way - smaller and smaller amounts of fruit/veg/water etc. etc.....

Smaller amounts leak less, but they then don't give enough yield. So you have to make up 3-4 batches and still have to try to clean out the machine.

This is not satisfactory in this age! We went to the moon in the 1960s and the space agey looking nutribullet cant produce a leak free drink???? It seems not to be fit for the purpose it was designed for.

The thing that sells this piece of equipment is it's very, very sexy. Beautifully designed and packaged, but what use is attractive form without equally attractive function?

Problem is put the screw cap at the top - the right way up, and it looks pretty much like any other blender! And just about any other blender that has a motor from 600 - 900 watt (and you can get them - check it out online) can do the job as well and have longer running times if needed.

I will be contacting Capbran Holdings to try and resolve the leaking issue, but from what Im reading online i dont hold out much hope!

Wouldn't buy one again and would recommend to a friend that they get a good quality blender/liquidiser with a strong motor. It'll do the same job without the mess!

I have only had the Nutribullet 900 a few weeks and it is already leaking underneath in the very-hard-to-clean gully surrounding the underneath rubber part. ALL I want, and thought I had, is a good blender that does the job. Any ideas welcome. People keep saying that Nutribullets is a design fault. This is why I hate buying things. often you THINK you have done the research, then you buy it, and then find you've made a massive mis-take. This is how I am feeling. So please, what is solution to the existing problem, and second which serious blender do people here recommend?

My nutribullet has also started to leak after having it and using it for a long time. I read about a rubber gasket to replace and I do not think ours has one either. It leaks around the blade area and also goes thru to the bottom. People are saying this is a design flaw. I am wondering if that is true.

crwdns2893770:0crwdnd2893770:0crwdne2893770:0

These things are simply designed poorly. I believe it's as good as this poor design can be, as they've selected as stable as possible a gasket material, but still, the prop cap has to be screwed on to an exact torque rating in order to assure no leaks - not too tight (or the gasket can bunch up, leaving gaps), and not too loose, obviously. Ambient room temperature can also be a factor as you may be starting with a softer (warmer) gasket, or more brittle (colder) gasket and will need to compensate your torque accordingly. The only way that this canNOT be a design flaw, is if the motorized base assy is dishwasher safe. I'm swapping mine out for a good ole' blender.

I’d like to send my nutribullet to the moon to see if the spills float away.

A simple fix worked for me. Put a drop of vegetable oil on the tip of your finger and rub it around the lip of the container , not on the threads just on the lip, put on the lid, spin it up, no leaks.
