Hello,
Do you mean blender blades?
Either way, your blender blades/knives need to be sharpened.
This is the key to making your blender last a long time.
You may need to reach into the unit to sharpen them if the blade part doesn't twist off.
Good luck :)

Since You didn't specify any brand or product name I would suggest for you to buy a new one, in that way you won't be bothered with going to a repiarman (it's very diffuclt to do it alone) and the new blenders are excellent
Try back to basics blnder They are great

GE single serve blender 898679--need replacement plastic gasket for grinding jar. I am told by Walmart, where I purchased it, that I need to return it. I don't want to return it. The blade chewed up the...


I had the same issue. i took the gasket from the other blade to use with the blade i use everyday. one trick is, don't remove that gasket to clean it but make sure it stays in there. Just soak it and scrub it good, to make sure it stays seated in there.

If the gasket comes loose while you are grinding, the lid will come loose in the base and sometimes causes you to not be able to get the jar from the base. you have to turn the jar the opposite direction to get the lid to tighten up, then you can remove the jar from the base.

I am trying to get replacement jars since those plastic nobbies that run the blender have broken off. It is down to one of 3 nobbies, so it can't be run anymore. I mght just have to buy a brand new blender but it seems so wasteful.

My blendtec blender doesn't blend as well as it once did. The motor seems to be running fine, but I am not sure if the blades are spinning properly.


You have already found what is the problem the blades.
The blades after a lot of working hours with ice they have mainly three problems.
One the sharp adjes have created a lot of teeths and are not so sharp any more so the blending is not smooth anymore.
Second problem they have loose a title so they have move from corect place some milimeters and this change the wave motion and again the beleding is not so smooth as before.
Third the blades are secure on an axis which is located in two bearings which have een wearing out so the rotating motion of the blades again is not so smooth as before.
So if you are not able to fix the blades kit or to find someone in your area to do it profetionaly and cheap one good idea is to buy a new blades kid.
Good luck

My kenmore blender stopped blending!!!


There is a gear underneath the blender blade. This connects the blade to the motor found on the base of the blender. This gear usually get worn out specially if the load that we are giving to the blender is beyond its limit. I hope you could by a spare on one of the electric shop near or might as well consider buying a new set.

My blender slowed down when I tried to make a smoothie. It doesn't seem to have the full power anymore.


If the motor of the blender is running at a slower speed now no matter what you're blending, the unit needs to repaired or replaced. Most small appliance manufacturers    { margin: 0.79in } P { margin-bottom: 0.08in } A:link { so-language: zxx } --> don't repair their units anymore, they simply replace them. If you're no longer in warranty, unless you paid over $200 for the blender, it's time to get a new one.

Stopped blending


Exact same problem.  Turned out the threaded shaft that holds the blades was broken so tightening the nut on the top doesn't really help.  Just ordered a new blade assembly from www.smallappliance.com.  Mine was the Waring 007314W Blender Cutting Assembly but there is also an older one for earlier models.  Don't know if it will work yet (assume it will), but cheaper than buying a new blender.
