Blendtec jar maintenance

So I haven't used my Blender for a while, and I was told that you need to use the jar fairly frequently to keep the rotor lubricated. I think mine dried out a bit as the rotor is very stiff. Really don't want to buy another jar (although it's been a few years) and was wondering if there's a DIY method to freshen up the rotor. Has anyone tried reoiling it?

  1. I have not tried reoiling it and have not used mine in a while either as I am now hooked on the Vitamix. If it is still under warranty, think they would replace it, right? (Mine is out of warranty.) Definitely worth a call to them, though! Let us know!
