The shaft has probably siezed at the bottom near the blade. The seal can fail and let liquid inside the shaft and gunge it up.
Take the orange handle apart, then unscrew the four steel pins, then pull out the motor. From the blade end, take the screw from the blade and prize it off. Then pull the shaft out from the top and clean it. It may be stuck - push a blunt nail or similar in the bottom to free it. Clean the shaft and solidified debris inside the tube. Then reassemble carefully.
Grease can only creep into the blender vase if the oil seal has worn out, or the blenders blade shaft is worn and wobbling. Try cleaning all parts in alcohol to soften the seals. Rebuild kits and replacement blades can be found here (http://www.brevilleusa.com/breville-parts/blending.html)
Once you receive the parts, unscrew the collar from the bottom of the jar, and the old gasket and blade assembly will pop out - sometimes you have to peel the gasket apart from blender jar, but not always.
Those small plastig bungs do come out, you will need a fine probe to prise them out then you will see 2 philips head screws which hold it all together, not sure how you will tighten your shaft though, looks like it might be moulded into the plastic retainer, good luck! on mine the motor bearings are seized,
2. Check the jar by turning the shaft by hand to see if it rotates easily. .If not, disassemble the blade and ring. Check for obstructions or misalignment. It is better to change the shaft which holds the blade......
I was just able to fix mine. You'll need the following: two wrenches (almost any type), steel wool, and vegetable oil.
1. Clamp the hexagonal nut inside the bottom of the pitcher with one
wrench and place the jaws of the other wrench between the "spokes" of
the wheel at the outside bottom of the pitcher.
2. Turn either counter-clockwise until the hex nut comes off. At this
point, you should be able to pull the bottom piece out from the bottom.
Pay attention to the order and orientation of the parts inside the
pitcher as they may fall out now.
3. Dry off the shaft and rub it with some ordinary steel wool (think SOS pads).
4. Twist a small amount of the steel wool and run it back and forth through the hole the shaft goes through.
5. Wipe both clean with a clean cloth or napkin.
6. Rub a little vegetable oil on the shaft.
7. Place the shaft back in the hole and test the movement. It should be like new again.
8. Reassemble the blender.
