SOURCE: Philips Hand blender
My wife picked ours up at a rummage sale, and we've grown to love the little thing for making single servings of banana milk shake. (half a frozen banana, cover with milk, a drop of vanilla, and about one minute with the hand blender blade!) When my youngest boys dropped ours, I gathered up the pieces of plastic that connect the attachments to the motor shaft, and carefully super glued them together. I then wrapped the plastic piece with fine nylon thread and a thin layer of super glue and placed it back onto the motor shaft, then let it sit for 24 hours. It is now permanently attached to the motor shaft and good to go. Too bad Philips doesn't care enough to support their customers with a part their engineers designed to break and save the rest of the product. I'll remember this about Philips products when I buy an HDTV.

SOURCE: I received a Jack La
Take your motor to a small appliance repairman. It might just be a loose wire..inside that needs replaced or re connected then follow my tips below.
I have been thru the fire about this! I sent my Healthmaster in recd another and it failed also. Almost always..it is the bearing that fails in the caraffe that supports the blade. The bearings that Jack Lalanne had installed in China..were not sealed...so they would allow water to enter corrode and eventually all of your blenders contents would come out thru the bottom! Or another thing that can happen is your blade will freeze up due to corrosion....and become immovable.
Jack Lalanne healthmaster is out of business. I manged to get a refund form Tristar..Lalannes distributor..BECAUSE they authorized me sending my blender back for a new one...and then they cashed my shipping check and then threw out my blender!!!!! I also had to call for weeks till I drove Tristar insane...so they ponied up the dough
So I doubt you can receive any money.
But this is what you CAN do!
1) If your motor functions well..you can buy a new carafe for 45 dollars or so from Cooking toys ( google cooking toys and it should come up)
2) OR if your cheap like me...and your blade doesnt rotate easily due to corrosion and your caraffe isnt leaking much...put a couple drops of oil on the outter rim of the bearing ( That would be located directly on the bottom of the outside of the caraffe..it surrounds the knurled metal part that is inserted in the motor for blending.
My blade was corroded and leaking a tiny bit..I put some olive oil on the bearing and it worked great! I have ben able to use my caraffe for a month now...when I expected to have to buy a new one from "Cooking Toys" Which I will do if this one fails.
3) If you buy a new caraffe form cooking toys..my advice? OIL THE BEARING WITH A LITTLE OIL...(any kind of vegetable oil) AFTER EACH TIME YOU USE IT! I SUSPECT IT WILL LAST INDEFINITELY>>>BUT TIME WILL TELL!

Look at the underside of the blade shaft. The metal wing nut on the end of the shaft secures the blade assembly to cream coloured plastic blade base. The wing nut also transmits the drive from the rubber coupling on your blender to the blade shaft. The wing nut has a LEFT HAND thread.
The left hand thread ensures the blade assembly does not unscrew during normal blender use.
Firstly disassemble the blender blade assembly. Place a folded tea towel over the blades and hold the blades firmly. If you do not use a tea towel you may cut yourself.
Grip the wing nut with your other hand and unscrew it CLOCKWISE.
Remove the wing nut. You can now remove the blade from the plastic base.
Put the blade assembly in the new jug and offer up the plastic base from under the jug so that the blade shaft protudes enough for you to install the wing nut.
Screw the wing nut ANTI-CLOCKWISE to secure the blades to the plastic base.
Do not over tighten the wing nut; you may have to replace your jug again at some point.

This may not be a solution but... I have found that the Salvation Army, Good Will, American Vets i.e "thrift shops in general" are a gold mine for things like this. Moulinex machines abound in them.
