Can't separate blade unit from jar, but managed to make it leak

We tried to separate the plastic assembly that holds the blades from the jar (to clean the blades) but it doesn't seem to screw off or bayonet-turn off like any other blender we've had. Now it leaks badly there, but still won't seem to budge

Soak in HOT water overnight and then remove! you may also have to replace the rubber seal inside to stop the leak!

Put it in hot water for a few minutes and then try to unscrew it.

Kitchenaide blender pitcher blade assembly sticks


You need to lock the blades from turning and undo the bottom clutch drive in such a way as you do not damage it. I use an old motor clutch drive to undo them myself. It has a left hand thread and a block of wood to hold the blade. Then you can remove the blade with shaft from the brass bush to clean and lubricate it. If the brass bush has moved up in the plastic housing you need to press/bang it down again. Then reassemble. If you wreck the clutch drive on the blade you will need to buy a new blade assy if it is separate to the beaker, if not you will need a beaker and blade unit complete.

If you have the glass jar then purchase either a new rubber seal for the blade to jar fitment or replace the blade assembly, it will be one or the other. If you have plastic beaker then get a new beaker, it is sold as a single assembly.

Leaking


Unfortunately Kitchenaid's design on those blenders is a one piece unit, over time the seals wear out and you have to replace the entire jar assembly, they usually run 40-50 dollars and can be found from several vendors.

Here is a link to the replacement jar on our site: KitchenAid Blade Jar Assembly W10555711

Leaks at the bottom of the glass holder


I'm no expert but in my experience if it leaking at the bottom then either the jar /carafe has a few chips or cracks around the hole in the bottom that the blade fits through and in that case you need to replace the jar and your blade assembly may still be good and can be moved to a new jar/carafe. Or the blade assembly has come loose a little and need to be tightened or some the washers (usually the rubber ones) have worn out and need to be replaced. There's plenty of explanation here at amazon and else where on how to replace the assembly blade, move it to a new jar and tighten it down, etc. Hope this helps!

I have a kitchen aid blender with a polycarbonate jar. The jar leaks at the blade. I noticed it has a plastic nut on the bottom with left hand threads. However the nut will not fit over the drive gear...


Older KitchenAid blenders had a jar that was made so the blade assembly could be removed for cleaning. On the newer models the blender jar and the blade assembly are all one unit so you have to purchase a new jar to get the blade assembly. All of this is dependent on which model of blender you have.

We would be happy to help you. Please a give us a call at 1-800-339-9297 we would be happy to help! One of our repair technicians can talk you through the repair over the phone free of charge. On the bottom of your blender is the model and serial numbers; have these handy when you call so we can help you order the correct part.

We have several blender jars on our Web site http://www.mendingshed.com/kitaidblen.html for KitchenAid blenders. If we don't have the blender jar that fits your model in-stock we can order it and ship it to you. Please contact us with any further questions. You can also email your model number or questions to customerservice@mendingshed.com


Sincerely,

Mendingshed.com Staff

How do I fix or replace my kitchenaid blender blade KSB560BF (Polycarb Jar)? It's leaked thru the blade assembly.


Make sure the blade assembly is put together in the correct order. The blade needs to go through the gasket so that the order is pitcher glass, gasket, and metal blade base. Then the final plastic cap threaded onto the pitcher. If the gasket is not between the pitcher and the metal blade assembly, you will have leaks.
Also, check the gasket to be sure it's not cracked and that it doesn't have residue on it.
I hope this helps. If it does, please come back and rate my suggestion!

KSB5600BO kitchenAid blender blades broke and l am looking to replace them but I can't find the right parts. Do I need to just by the whole Jar assembly?


You don't need to replace the entire jar assembly. Have you tried to contact Kitchensid. They make high quality appliances and will probably send you new blades for $0.

Remove the bottom clean the unit fully. Add the bottom blad assebly and this will fix your problem. The "sooty" is plastic shavings. Take note that the fitting were the "jar" connects to the motor that this is not wearing away. The unit i have broke and i am unable to find a replacement blade assembly.

Waring blender - new blade


I just figured it out. The key is you need to think in terms of keeping the blades and the large washers separate. Here's what you do.
Thread the blade through the glass and use the white rubber gaskets against the glass and the stainless gaskets against the hardware. Then tighten the whole enchilada to the blender with the main nut (that goes on the bottom outside of the blender). Then once that's nice and tight tighten the flange that catches the blender teeth to the remaining portion of the protruding threads. Make sure you use the copper colored gasket first then the stainless washer then the stainless flange. Tighten that real good and you should be good to go.
To check if you've done it right spin the flange. If the blades spin independent of everything else you're good to blend away!
