I have not seen this problem with ours yet but if turning up the speed doesn't help (first thought would be the motor's overloading because you're using hard foods in it on a low setting). If it shuts off even under light loads, judging by the manual it's something you need to send it in for. See if there's a service center in the area. These Kitchen Centers aren't made any more and it's unlikely you can fix it yourself.

I'm after replacement parts for my oster versa 1400w blender preferably in australia .


when you order parts it goes by model number, from what I can see there are several different model #'s for the Oster Versa,
BLSTBV-RV0-000 and BLSTVB-000-000.
try here, type your model # in the search area at the top.
Oster Blender Parts
or here,
Oster blenders lids blenders jars caps at Goodman
or here, under parts & accessories

I haven't found any where in Australia to get them, you may just have to get them on line.

I have osterizer food grinder( Detouchable) but machine was lost where can i find a replacement for the machine...


If you mean the one that attaches to a Kitchen Center, they are no longer available, eBay or garage sales are your only hope.

Same with the free-standing models they had.

There is liquid leaking through the bearing on the base that adapts to the motor. Is there a service repair center in my area, my zip code is 60415?


Oster.com shows one Oster service center in Illinois:
(http://www.oster.com/ServiceCenters.aspx?state=Illinois)

Household Appliance Sales and Service 7034 North Milwaukee Avenue
Niles, Illinois
60714-3707
Phone: 847-647-8250
Fax: 847-647-2214

It's a roughly 45-minute drive from your zip code, according to Google Maps. You may want to call them with a description of your problem and see if they can service. There are also several locations in PA that will service Oster blenders.

Oster 6700 Gasket O-ring leaks


Gasket is not the problem.
Square shaft that is pressed into the turning gear is not tight and allows leaking through the connection.
Only repair is to replace the assembly with the gear drive, blades, etc. and this will take care of the leak. The "O" ring gasket is fine and holds the liquids. However the leak is around the center of the shaft that goes through the bottom.

Gary

Need a schematic diagram for a kitchen blender


I think this will help a bit (p.2 only), although it seems a little crude to be a full service manual - this is a service manual for an Oster "Osterizer" Blender - one of the classics:
http://www.villaware.com/manuals/ProductService/Service/Sunbeam/4112.8.pdf

Here is one for a Philips blender, but once again, not as detailed as I've ever seen:
http://www.eserviceinfo.com/download.php?fileid=27616

These are the free one I could find. Generally, an authorized servicer is not allowed to distribute a full service manual, so you normally have to pay someone to get a complete service manual.

Replace oster kitchen center base drive part


I'am the guy who posted the comment I found out how to do this.
There are 2 possible solutions the 2nd is not pretty, hope the first works for you it didn't for me.

1- The motor must be lock up, by placing a thin screwdriver through the holes in the base into the fan down into the motor,holding the screwdriver, remove the square drive from the top.The part you are trying to remove actually is screwed into a gear in the gear box, you will need a spanner wrench,(sometimes a strong pair of long nose pliers will work, engage the spanner holes,hold the screwdriver ,and try to unsrew it, you may need someone to hold the screwdriver,because it takes a lot of force to loosen it.These are regular threads,and unscew counter clockwise.

2- if #1 doesn't work-this will- but its not so pretty.The motor assembly attached to the gear box will have to be removed,it will come out as one piece
Remove the bottom plate,unplug the white wire from the speed control,and the blue- white wire from the board,also you will have to remove one of the brushes with the white -blk lead.
Now you will have to actually break off of the top plastic(bakelite)by whatever means you dream up (I actually used a small wood chisel to score a line, and crack it) once its cracked, it breaks apart easily.Once thats done turn it over and remove the four screws holding the gear box to the housing you will now be able to remove the gear-box motor assembly.
Remove the 3 screws from the top of the gear box pry the box open,remove the gear with the piece that needs to be replaced,now you need to get the piece unscrewed from the gear.I did this by locking the nurled end into a vise, and very carefully grabing the gear teeth with large channel locks(if you think of a better way thats great)it work for me,but I was very concerned about the gear teeth,you can't slip.
Try the new piece to make sure it sets all the way down to the bottom of the gear(it must or your head will be to high ,and won't lock down)if all is well,make sure everything is greased,and start re-assembly, the new coupler ,and the square drive will be the last 2 pieces assembled from the top, once again locking the motor with a small screwdriver.
