Replacing rubber drive coupling

The rubber coupling on my Oster blender snapped in two. It seems simple enough to replace, but I can't figure out how to remove the old one. Can you advise?

Thank you.

    Thanks, arwest! I'd already gotten it apart, but can't get that darn coupling loose. The nut comes off the fan. I think I might have damaged the motor, because it turns both ways now. That can't be good.

My coupler was split in two, and I couldn't screw it off. I had to do the following:
1. Take the blender apart (mine had 2 screws on the bottom). 2. Remove the motor housing from the blender (mine was loose from removing the two screws earlier). 3. Remove the fan by removing the fan nut. 4. Take apart the motor housing. Mine had two machine screws with 1/4" hex heads holding a bracket that tied the two ends together. Once those two screws are removed, you can take the motor out of the housing. Be careful on the fan end of the motor, because it's got two spring loaded brushes that will come together once the motor is pulled through. 6. Once you have the motor out of the housing, you'll have something to grab onto so you'll be able to unscrew the broken coupler. I used a pair of channel locks and gently grasped the motor body, and then just used a regular pair of pliers to grab the broken coupler. It's regular thread (lefty lucy righty tighty), so twist accordingly.
Once you have the coupler off, just put everything back together. The hardest part is holding apart the spring loaded brushes while you push the fan end of the motor shaft back through the motor housing.
Took me about 20 minutes to do everything.
Good luck.

If you take the fan nut off, you will see the shaft has a flat. You can use a crescent wrench on that end (not too tight or you'll damage the threads) and a visegrip on the coupler in order to get it off.

Ok, guys. I tried this before my husband got home. I had it taken apart but I dropped the motor and the threads on the shaft got bunged up. How do I go about fixing that? Neighbor said tap & die?
Thanks, Terri

I just replaced my rubber coupling / drive shaft. I had trouble getting inside my beehive blender. The trick was 1/4 socket screws inside of the feet of the base. Once those screws and feet are off, the cover came off of the bottom, exposing the motor.

The rubber coupling unscrews from the motor. If you still have something to grip on the coupling, you can do this with the motor in place. Just hold on to the metal fan blades on the bottom (or the nut in the middle of the fan) and the coupling on the top and unscrew. If you can't grip the coupling from the outside because it broke off, you may have to take out the motor to reach it. I expect it's possible, though, everything seemed to be put together with 1/4" nuts or philips screws.

The drive stud on my vitamix 3600 blender sheared off. When screw is replaced it comes unscrewed when the blender is turned on. Does anyone know if the original design included epoxy weld?


If the motor runs in reverse to an Oster which uses counter clockwise thread then it follows that your thread should not be counter clockwise. If it comes loose when you turn it on surely the thread on the coupling must be faulty because according to your description the action of turning it on can only be to tighten the coupling. Most couplings with a thread that I have seen are counter clockwise so you will probably struggle to find another brand coupling to match.

The only thing I can think of is to try to repair the separated rubber with one of the special adhesives.
This may not be physically, ie, damaged beyond repair, but if you think it might be repairable try something like JB Weld. They make an adhesive that sets up in 4 minutes. I have fixed some weird breaks with this stuff.

Hope this might help Good Luck Loring

Replacing the part that connects the motor to the blades on an Oster blender


I don't know if this will help or if this is what you are looking for. But today I was searching the web for the bottom piece that fits on the jar and saw this website has a lot of replacement parts for Oster blenders. Hope this is what you're looking for.
Good Luck

The blender coupling on my oster snapped in half. I have the replacement part already I just cannot figure out how to get the broken coupling off the base of the motor. I also got a replacement square...


10-01-2009 Sara - see solution for rlaymon 1-9-08 "Top part of base broke off" by TanyaCS on 1-20-08 - good ideas. I just fixed mine - 2 hour job + half hour to put a new cord in. Like TanyaCS my broken coupling was rusted to shaft - used WD-40 twice and let sit - meanwhile took out motor and removed fan - kept screws and washers in order on workbench (kitchen counter) - the fan hole is "D" shaped - fan end of shaft also "D" shaped - I filed a "flat" on the other side of the factory "flat" (side of 'D' that is straight) - Used big pliers on broken coupling and adjustable wrench on on the "flats" on fan end of the shaft. Broken end came right off. New cord is 18 gauge extension cord capable of at least 6 amps. Cut off the un-needed end. Or order a replacement cord $4 when you order the rubber drive coupling $4, pin with slinger washer $3. Bet you also need new rubber feet - didn't buy for mine - wish I had. Bert

Top part of base broke off


This just happened to me too, and I think I just fixed it.  First you have to get a replacement part called the "blender coupling" (I got mine online from Goodmans for $3.99).  I also replaced the square drive and slinger (two parts come together for $2.99)-that's the little part that sticks up and attaches to the pitcher.
Unscrew the bottom four screws of the base where the rubber feet are.  Remove the rubber skirt to reveal four screws that hold the motor in.  They are way in there so you'll need a long screw driver.  Remove the motor and unscrew the old coupling.  Mine had not been replaced since my grandmother bought this blender who knows when, so the coupling was really stuck.  I did not have a tool narrow enough to get a good grip to apply enough torque to remove the coupling so I had to try a few other tricks.  If your blender is the same, remove the bottom nut, fan blade and two washers.  This gave enough of a rod to grip to get the old coupling off.  (I also had to use some WD40, and heat and cool the coupling a few times to break the old seal).
Good luck!  Hope that helps!
