Waring Pro Blender is leaking and blade assembly is loose

We have had constant problems with blenders and then researched to find that Waring is very tough and long-lasting.  We bought our new Waring blender in July and it has worked seamlessly for the past several months - until today.  During the blending of a fruit smoothie, the blending action slowed and then stopped.  I turned the blender off, poured out the ingredients and noticed there was a leak coming from the bottom of the blade assembly.  I felt the assembly and it was loose - then I added some water and noticed a constant drip.  Help me!!!  I thought the blade assembly was sealed tight and would withstand ice crushing.  What can be done?

I know this is an old, old post, but I could not find a solution anywhere, so hopefully this will help someone. We have a model 51BL25, similar to scottman55's blender, and it had the same problem. There are two separate nuts in the blade assembly. One holds the blade on, and the other holds the seal tight. When the latter gets loose, the blender shakes and leaks.
To fix it, first you have to remove the top nut holding the blade on. I had to get in there with pliers, but a ratchet with an extension would be perfect. This nut is right-handed ("normal"). Once that nut is loose, you can remove the nut and the blade. You will also want to remove the washer immediately under the blade (take note of which side goes up).
Now, you can pull the whole axle out by the wheel on bottom of the blender. This exposes a really thin, flat nut. In my case, this nut had come completely off, so nothing was really holding the seal together at all. Again, make sure you remember which direction the nut goes -- it is not quite symmetrical. That nut is what comes loose when the blender starts leaking. By the way, it is a left-handed nut, so it screws on counter-clockwise ("backwards"). Screw it in tight, then put the rest of the blade assembly back together, and your done. If you have the right tools, it should take only maybe 5 minutes.
Depending on your problem/model, this may or may not solve your problem. Hope it helps!

Here is a link to a few Waring products - if your part isn't on this list, I would give them a call - as long as they've been around, I would be surprised if this list was exhaustive:

I have a waring pro blender Model WF2111211 It's glass he blade part doesnt come off. motor runs fine but blade really tight won't spin so the motor smells burn out trying to get it to free.


Heat up a cup of water in microwave until boiling in a two cup Pyrex measuring cup. Add one more cup of tap water. Our it in the blender and let it soak. If it doesn't work, repeat but with less tap water.

We have an old Waring Futura 900 blender that leaks at the bottom of the glass around the beater blades. How do you repair? Is there a gasket?


Yes their is a gasket. However try to tied the hole blade kit a litle harder since it might be loose, it might be also dirty you can loose it clean it and put it back.
Have a visual insections since the glass might be broken a litle bit also.
Good luck

I have a Waring Pro Speciality Blender. After only a few times in use, the jar began leaking and I noticed glass shards around the outer rim of the jar. The blades are fixed on this model. I wrote to the...


If you don't see a physical crack or stress line on the jar, the issue could be either the gasket or blade assembly - Waring doesn't list any parts for sale for this model, but you may be able to call them and get these parts. There are not very many reviews on this particular Waring, so I am working with very limited information (and this is just my opinion), but the few that I have seen suggest that this might be the worst blender Waring ever made (in general, though, their blenders are usually top-notch).

Consumer Guide generally rates it high, but issues this:
"Cons: Strong churning motion requires you to hold the lid in place to prevent leakage through the top and limits the ingredients capacity, especially for hot mixtures"

The sites that invite the most user input into the rating generally give it a 2-star rating.

Waring seems to have escaped somewhat from their usual blender shape - and I have even heard that the shaft is made out of rubber, which is frightening.

Waring blender - new blade


You can call Waring and they can send you a parts breakdown showing the order the parts need to be in. If you still have problems they can go over the assembly with you on the phone or direct you to a service center near you to help.

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!

Stopped blending


Exact same problem.  Turned out the threaded shaft that holds the blades was broken so tightening the nut on the top doesn't really help.  Just ordered a new blade assembly from www.smallappliance.com.  Mine was the Waring 007314W Blender Cutting Assembly but there is also an older one for earlier models.  Don't know if it will work yet (assume it will), but cheaper than buying a new blender.
