Meet Blendtec’s Bloggers, Part 5


It’s time to meet some more Blendtec bloggers, as well as our wonderful designers who create so many of the graphics for our posts. Here’s Debbie, Stone, and Mary.

Debbie Mauerman, Blendtec DesignerDebbie Mauerman, Senior Graphic Designer

I’m passionate about the work I do here at Blendtec. It’s very important to me that our customers have a good experience with our products from start to finish. As a designer I’m lucky enough to help mold that experience with the visual assets that I produce.

When I’m not working at Blendtec I love to travel, play music and spend time with good friends and family.



Stone Lasley - Blendtec BloggerStone Lasley, Software Development Manager

I’m the software development manager at Blendtec, and I am a big computer geek, both figuratively and literally.

I competed as a bodybuilder for 10 years, winning state titles on two occasions. Bodybuilding taught me more about discipline and living with discomfort than anything else I’ve ever done. Aside from bodybuilding, I’ve competed in freestyle (moguls) skiing, motorcycle road racing, and computer programming.


Mary Butler, Blendtec BloggerMary Butler, Customer Service Manager

I’ve been working at Blendtec for almost 19 years. I’ve had the opportunity to work in different departments in the company over the years and am now the customer service manager. I love my job because of all the great people who work here.

When I’m not at work, I love spending time with my husband and traveling to see my children.

      Hi Rob,
      This is an overload error and is the result of 1 of 3 conditions:
      1. There is too much in the jar
      2. The speed sensor is faulty
      3. The motor or the motor control is faulty

      To determine which condition caused the OVERLOAD ERROR do the following:
      1. Remove the jar from the blender
      2. Touch and release one of the Blend Cycle Icons
      3. If the motor spins at a controlled speed and the OVERLOAD ERROR doesn’t re-appear, then the jar was too full
      4. If the motor spins up quickly to a high speed and the OVERLOAD ERROR re-appears, then the speed sensor is faulty and the blender needs to be serviced
      5. If the motor never spins and the OVERLOAD ERROR re-appears, then the motor or motor control is faulty and the blender needs to be serviced

      If the issue is 4 or 5, please contact our customer service team at 800-253-6383, and someone will be able to assist you. Please be sure you are near your blender when you call, as they will still need to troubleshoot the issue over the phone.
