Question about Cuisinart BFP-703 Blender
The black plastic gear that trasmits power from the base to the blender (or food processor) cracked in half. Can this part be located? Can it be user replaced?
The drive is replacable and available from Cuisinart, you will have to sign a waver to get the part. the drive is screwed onto the motor shaft with reverse threads. the plastic drive will have to be completely broken off of the unit to expose a brass"nut" which was internal to the drive. depending upon your model you may have to remove the lower half of the base unit to access the lower part of the motor shaft. there will be a slot in the end of the shaft for a large flat blade screwdriver. this is used to hold the shaft still while turning the drive "nut" with a vice grip pliar or similar. the new drive is just threaded onto the shaft and normal operation tightens it.

The reverse threads were the problem for me - no hole in bottom of blender cuisinart BFP-7 so you actually have to take off the bottom plastic casing and then you will have access to the slot in the motor shaft to hold the shaft while breaking the original Clutch Drive brass ring loose - you might need an extra hand to break the original clutch loose ---- screw on the new clutch and then put on the blender jar and that will tighten up the clutch driver - I would not run this without the blender jar on top just to be safe --- wish cuisianrt was helpful but they refused even after signing a disclaimer for liabillity just to buy the part
