    My rubber washer burned up. Where do I get new one, how to replace, tighten blade assembly.

    Same year, 2004, same model, same problem. I don't think we can fix it by ourselves. Only one year warranty was provided. Actually its design has problem. The latest model can tell they redesigned the bottom of jar is higher so that the seal won't be damaged. I believe K-tec knew that problem that's why they provided only 1 year warranty for jar, but 8 years for motor.

Usualy there is a rubber ring araound the bottom of the blade. If it gets worn out or out of posistion it may start to leak. Also if you dont have everything screwed in tight enought it could leak as well

The bearing and seal are not replaceable. The bearing is sonically welded into thte base of the jar. The K-Tec is made by Blend-Tec, and any of the Blend-Tec jars will work as a direct replacement.

We own a kitchen aide blender and it has started to leak. This jar does not come apart. do we need to replace the jar?


The Instruction & Recipe booklet for the Kitchen Aid KSB550, KSB560, KSB570, KSB580 5-speed Blender can be found here:

http://www.kitchenaid.ca/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%209709225.pdf


There is no infomration to suggest that the blender blade could be removed for replacement of a seal

On page 27 of the pdf (page 24 if printed) there is contact information for ordering replacement parts. You might ask if the blade assemly can be ordered and replaced separtely but I believe you must replace trhe blender jar and blade unit as one piece.

My blender wasn't runn ing well then started smoking, i took off the pitcher and saw metal flakes and the blade feels like it isnt turning easily


A small appliance that smokes is a symbol of "needs replacement
It is unsafe and can cause a short circuit on your electrical system that will cost you more than 20 blenders to fix. I just wouldn't use it, something similar happened to me with another small appliance and the deal ended up costing me $6500 in electrical wiring for the kitchen. Think about it.

Remove the 2 screws from the bottom of the base, release the 4 clips on each side and remove the bottom cover.
There is a fan blade attached to the bottom of the motor and a sensor on the side of it that senses the fan blade turning. If the sensor does not sense the fan blade turning, it assumes that the motor is locked up or 'overloaded'.
Check that the fan blade has not come loose from the motor shaft and reattach if necessary. Verify that the sensor is secure in it's housing next to the fan blade.
Reinstall the base cover and verify operation.

There is a leak in the caraffe(or jar). It is at


Common issue with all of these carafe's. Once the jar starts to leak the bearings are shot and it is time to replace the jar. The bearings are non-replacable. Bad design in my opinion. I was able to get my last jar (I have been through 3 before the 5 year warranty went out) to last by hand washing and not putting it in the dishwasher, but after 4 years of use on this jar it failed too.

A little late, but Blendtec and K-tec are one and the same. Their jars will work.

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!
