Cuisinart CSB-77 handheld blender - whisk and chopper/grinder don't turn

After only a few uses, the whisk and chopper/grinder have stopped working, while the blender is fine.

It looks like there is supposed to be a friction connection between the wotor unit and the driven unit, but it no longer fully connects ( like a slipping clutch, the motor runs freely, but doesn't engage).

Is there a quick fix for this and is this a common problem?

    sorry for the typo - 'wotor' was supposed to be 'motor', of course.

    Same problem, but with the blender and the chopper/grinder- the whisk is fine.

SOURCE: clutch on the jar of my cbt500 cuisinart blender is broken.

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.

SOURCE: connection between the motor and the blender unit

Replace the blade assembly immediately. They are available from Cuisinart's website. Sugars and other stuff can gum up the blade assembly over time, so it will periodically need to be replaced. A quick and easy way to keep the blade assembly clean and working longer is to put water and a drop of dishwashing soap in the blender after use and run the blender at low speed for 15-20 seconds - an old Osterizer trick.

How to put motor and blade sections back together?

There are two phillip head screws holding the blender end together where it came apart. They are hidden under plugs on either side of the imprinted information. Simply drill a hole in each plug and remove them by putting something in the hole (small screwdriver) and pulling them out. Loosen the screws, enough to pull the body apart far enough to insert the blender end back in. Tighten the screws back up and your good to go. I left the plugs out, they don,t serve any purpose.

My model csb 77 hit a bone and a plastic part in the motor assembly broke. Can I get it repaired? Can I take it apart and do it myself? Pete

No solution acording to the company. They do not sale this part..You'll have to buy the whole motor for 25$. I think they do that part on purpose to make you buy more. I have the same problem.

Blades not turning, motor spurtering

I would say that these high speed motors are prone to wearing out their brushes quite quickly, but are not really designed to come apart.
I suppose it is their mode of failure.

If you can find spare brushes for the motor, then do, but the unit is likely to be clipped and solvent welded together, so may be cracked during repair.

Cuisinart Quick Prep is not working properly

I think the ice was too hard for a hand blender. I think the impact has caused the blade to separate from the shaft or caused the shaft to separate internally. If your blender is still under warranty you might be able to get it fixed. Note: none of the "Smoothy" recipes in the manual call for ice. One uses ice-cream. One uses "partially thawed frozen strawberries" and one uses sherbet.

The handheld blender makes a horrible screeching noise all the time. I don't see anywhere to lubricate it or even take it apart. What's a person to do?

Time to use your warranty or throw it out. Not a serviceable product, you can't order a set of bearings for this. sorry
