Hello and Welcome to

I would like to start by introducing myself, I am Andrew, one of the many experts on with over 30 years of experience! I know it can be frustrating when electronics go wrong but from my experience, misconfiguration is usually the most common reason and with the right advice and guidance you can be sure to have them addressed. Please allow me a few moments to investigate the information you have logged with us today so that I can provide you with the information you need to have this matter addressed

Thank you for your patience while I investigated your question. I will need some additional information in this instance as the information provided initially has not been very clear, I hope that is ok with you.

  1. Could I confirm what sort of power plug the blender has, Ireland's eletrical setup is identical to the United Kingdom, I assume the mixer has a two-pin, is that right?

As I have not heard back from you with the information requested, I will have to provide my answer based on the information you have provided us already, this may not be accurate, however, if you do wish to provide me with more information I can then look into investigating further!

Based on the information you have provided it sounds like you have a query relating to an American Vitamix blender which you are unable to use as the socket is a US Twin adapter. I would suggest one of the options might be to get an adapter which converts into a 3-pin plug that would be compatible to use either in the United Kingdom or Ireland. I understand that you have been able to arrange an alternative adapter which has not worked and this may be purely due to the voltage capacity the plug allows to run through it. If you take a look at the website address I have shared with you, it will redirect you to what you need -

I hope the information provided today helps and if you have any questions or require any further assistance, please let me know and I will do my best to answer those!
