The best way that I've found to remove the bottom from the blender jar is to put the blender jar back on the blender base (make sure it locks in place) and then turn the jar to the right. You'll feel the jar detaching from the base. Once it's loosened up, remove from the base and finish turning the bottom, manually. Before I found this method, I had tried everything to get the plastic bottom detached from the jar. Without removing the bottom, there's no way to clean it properly and rather than be unsafe I'd need to throw the whole works in the trash. But the method I've described above works every time!
Remove the bottom clean the unit fully. Add the bottom blad assebly and this will fix your problem. The "sooty" is plastic shavings. Take note that the fitting were the "jar" connects to the motor that this is not wearing away. The unit i have broke and i am unable to find a replacement blade assembly.
The clutch assembly is for the teeth on the base itself. If your problem is with the teeth that are connected to the bottom of the blade that sits in the jar, you want to order a blade assembly instead.
Yes, I know what it is. On the base of the blender jar (the plastic base) there are some "fingers" that must contact the base to allow operation to take place. Turn it upside down and look at the little plastic "fingers" around the outside periphery of the plastic base.
These fingers tend to break over time... mine only has two left right now, and it only works in one particular position as a result.
Rotate the blender jar one spot at a time until you are able to operate it "normally". I use it for margaritas, and it won't allow me to push the button for Frozen Drink unless the jar is in the right position.
I am going to try and find a replacement base (or entire blender jar) somewhere... or else I will finally have to retire my favorite blender of all time!
