Myron's tip about the need to unscrew the grey rubber coupling is correct, but I was unable to grab the post and hold it still, even though I was using narrow needle-nose pliers. I just could not get underneath the rubber coupling. I ended up cutting the rubber piece off the steel cord inside the coupling, which exposed the threaded post. I could hold the post stationary from above while I unscrewed the steel cord. My old coupling was stripped and worn out, so it did not matter. A new coupling can be ordered cheaply.
I found that it was not necessary to open the housing of the whole appliance as long as you can hold the post stationery. And even if you can't grab the post from above, opening the housing won't help because it won't come off until the coupling is removed at the top.
If you need to open the appliance for anything else, Myron is right, you need to remove the 4 rubber boots on the bottom to expose the screws. The screws are so-called temper-proof screws for which you need a special screwdriver. The screws are called "pin-in-head-star". But removing the 4 scows is not enough. You also need to unscrew the coupling at the top.

SOURCE: Krups blender drive gear

Ed,

The problem I had was removing the grey rubber drive. The solution is that it screws off not pops off. The trick is to use narrow needle nose pliers to grab the post that attaches to the motor and turn the rubber drive counter clockwise. Removing the motor becomes easy. Pull out the 4 rubber feet under the base and the screws will be exposed. However my situation was the grey drive gear was stripped and would bottom out. My solution was to use a same size lock washer as the washer between the post and the drive. So far so good! If it fails I will need to buy another grey drive. Myron

Brand new. Pulse feature stuck ON. Tried OFF. Tried unplugging. Still only pulses, no blending. Tried a dozen times.


So when plugged in it always just runs on the pulse? I would assume that this is an issue with the control board inside. If this is brand new return it to the store and exchange for a different blender.
You could also contact Krups to see how they work their warranties but you most likely need the control board replaced and that is something a service center would have to do for you.

Here is the information for contacting krups:

Teeth sheared off the rubber drive gear on Krups Blender Style 572. Have ordered part and need installation instructions


take a flat head screw drive to the bottom of the blender and us it to hold the blender shaft in place while you turn the gear by hand or with a plyers (it is reverse threaded) and it should spin right off. when you get the new on it should spin right on.

Krups 243 blender clutch wheel


These little jewels are threaded onto the motor shaft so they tighten up when in operation. To remove, you will have to immobilize the motor shaft. See if you can insert an icepick or screwdriver into the blades of the motor fan on the bottom. Then using a punch and hammer, gently tap the clutch disk in the direction opposite from its normal rotation.

BE CAREFUL not to use so much force that you break either the clutch disk or the motor fan blade.
