Liquid leaks into bottom of pitcher and rusts cannot manually reach
After using my 'new' Healthmaster less than 10-11 times, with no issues, I noticed what appeared to be rust in color liquid was settling down into an area not accessible under the bottom of the pitcher.This was a couple of months ago, I have not used it since. Please help me troubleshoot and fix....ONE of the main reasons we purchased this unit was for health....Being diagnosed with MS, cancer, scholiosis, DDD, Facet joint arthritis, to name a few, I was really looking forward to finally find something to help...My funds are 'nil to none' being a senior and low income! YIKES... Would appreciate any assistance. Thank you..Nancy

Hi, my wife and I purchased the Health master blender about 6yrs ago. I recently noticed that the liquid was leaking from the bottom of the container. The blade is totally loose. How can I tighten it if at al?
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 belnder 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 teh 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!
I wish I could tell you a definite solution. Have you tried calling 973-575-5400 (ext 129)? I realize it isn't toll-free. According to several web sites, the manufacturer has discontinued the product, but they should definitely still be supporting the motor warranty.
Mine is eating the bearing in the bottom of the pitcher. That seems to be everyone's most frequent problem although mine hasn't actually started to leak yet. The motor is just fine. I suspect Jack Lalanne started getting complaints about the pitcher bearing and dropped his support for the product because of that.
You can replace the Osterizer "Standard Blade Assembly" (which includes a new rubber gasket) without buying a new and expensive glass jar. See http://www.householdappliance.com/blenderparts.html or one of the other appliance repair parts websites. After 20 years of use, it's time for a new blade and bearing.
