I tried the vinegar thing but it didn't quite work. We blended some smoothies with yogurt and it leaked through the bottom. No big deal, we tightened it up. We didn't clean it immediately. By the time we went to clean it, it was stuck. The vinegar didn't work, tried baking soda with vinegar, didn't work. Finally we ran the bottom underneath hot water for about 5-10 minutes. Finally after one strong turn the bottom came off. We have an oyster, the base can be used as well to take the bottom off but it turns counter-clockwise.

    i turned the glass jar upside down with the collar face up. filled the collar with boiling water. let it sit for 5 minutes. this softened the plastic collar enough to turn it again. after pouring out the water of course, i unscrewed the previously immovable collar!

The plastic collar attached to the base of the blender should screw off, but if you have blended a lot of sticky/sugary things in it, it may prevent easy removal. I would pour in a cup of vinegar and let it sit for about 5 minutes. Then dump out the vinegar and try unscrewing the collar. The blade assembly and rubber gasket will come out once the collar is unscrewed. If worse comes to worst, and you end up breaking the plastic collar, replacement collars are available from Cuisinart's website. Have fun!

Do you have replacement bowls for Russell hobbs food processor ?


Hi Josephine:
Fixya is not a retail store that actually sells stuff.
We mostly give free advice.
Soooooooo.....
I'd suggest that if you can't get the bowl you need through whomever sells the units, you could try checking with a thrift store (such as the Sally Ann or local hospital auxiliary) to see if you can find the appropriate sized bowl.
Cheers

Base gear for the top of the base


Carefully take it apart and clean it thoroughly. If you see any burnt wires, trying replacing those if you know how to replace one. As for the plastic gear on the power base, it can be easily replaced with any ordinary similar coupler of the same size, for example like the one KitchenAid supplies (Blending coupler 9704230). The only catch here is that you need to replace the coupler on the base of your choppers as well. This would be a better idea considering getting rid of the cheap plastic used in these blenders and the need for long-term use.

The Blender attachment will not turn, just grinds and smokes.


The motor shaft that spins the teeth that are on the base of the blender may be frozen up for some reason. If you purchased the duet within the last 3 years and have a receipt, call Cuisinart to get it repaired in warranty - even if you don't have a receipt, your serial number may still save you. If you purchased it more than 3 years ago, let me know.
