SOURCE: top part of base broke off

This just happened to me too, and I think I just fixed it.  First you have to get a replacement part called the "blender coupling" (I got mine online from Goodmans for $3.99).  I also replaced the square drive and slinger (two parts come together for $2.99)-that's the little part that sticks up and attaches to the pitcher.
Unscrew the bottom four screws of the base where the rubber feet are.  Remove the rubber skirt to reveal four screws that hold the motor in.  They are way in there so you'll need a long screw driver.  Remove the motor and unscrew the old coupling.  Mine had not been replaced since my grandmother bought this blender who knows when, so the coupling was really stuck.  I did not have a tool narrow enough to get a good grip to apply enough torque to remove the coupling so I had to try a few other tricks.  If your blender is the same, remove the bottom nut, fan blade and two washers.  This gave enough of a rod to grip to get the old coupling off.  (I also had to use some WD40, and heat and cool the coupling a few times to break the old seal).
Good luck!  Hope that helps!

SOURCE: blender blade not turning, rotating piece on base not connected

this is getting more and more common there is a part between the motor and the drive gear that snaps for no reason . its job is to snap if the blades jam as a "fuse" to save your house from a overheating ,jammed motor . the problem is there are no parts to buy to fix this . if its new take it back to where you bought it . otherwise shipping it 2 ways for repair to the factory is sometimes as much or more as a new blender ........ i would recomend you do one of two things : go to a goodwill or other type shop and get a nice vintage blender , it will last forever ! or move up to a vita mix . its costly but it will realy last you ... this new made in china junk is just bad news even when it has the kitchen aid name on it . its still the same junk ..... good luck........ Please if this answer helped , please rate this 3 or 4 stars . and keep me in the paid answer department . A 1 or 2 may knock me down into the unpaid ranks. Thanks Cactus Bob .

SOURCE: need a schematic diagram for a kitchen blender

I think this will help a bit (p.2 only), although it seems a little crude to be a full service manual - this is a service manual for an Oster "Osterizer" Blender - one of the classics:
http://www.villaware.com/manuals/ProductService/Service/Sunbeam/4112.8.pdf

Here is one for a Philips blender, but once again, not as detailed as I've ever seen:
http://www.eserviceinfo.com/download.php?fileid=27616

These are the free one I could find. Generally, an authorized servicer is not allowed to distribute a full service manual, so you normally have to pay someone to get a complete service manual.

SOURCE: leaking blender

Mine also leaked from day 1. I just read in the manual to first place the bottom and blade assembly on the counter, then seat the gasket around the blade assembly, making sure it is just under the lip of the blade piece (careful, you have to maneuver around the blades). Then place the jar on the assembly and screw in tightly. This worked and I have no more leaks.
This is different than other blenders where you place the gasket on the jar and then attach the bottom. It is a poor design, but after what I paid for it, I am glad to be able to use it and not just trash it.

Unable to fit. Cup into base of rocket blender


I had this exact same problem and was scratching my head why would that happen all of a sudden. After taking it completely apart (which I didn't need to), I realized in the end that the cup rim was stuck at the bottom of the blender base. It looked like a part of the base what got me confused the first place. The base of the blender is flat with no ridges around; check if this is the same problem with yours.

How do i get the bottom off the blender jar?


The best way that I've found to remove the bottom from the blender jar is to put the blender jar back on the blender base (make sure it locks in place) and then turn the jar to the right. You'll feel the jar detaching from the base. Once it's loosened up, remove from the base and finish turning the bottom, manually. Before I found this method, I had tried everything to get the plastic bottom detached from the jar. Without removing the bottom, there's no way to clean it properly and rather than be unsafe I'd need to throw the whole works in the trash. But the method I've described above works every time!

How can I open akrups gpa3 blender.It does not work only 3 years


The body of the blender is held together by three cross head screws two at the base which are clearly visable and a third which is concealed by the pulse on/off switch which you need to prise off to reveal - small spring to rear to catch! Our blender went totally dead due to a blown internal fuse which I have now replaced and hey presto we are back in action.

I need a replacement jar for a GE Blender model 169053


By now I'm sure you've given up, but do you still need the jar? I have one that is now useless to me since my son tried to run the blender when the jar and base were not seated correctly and the rotors on both were worn off.

Vita-mix Blender will not power on


We just had this problem.  Called VitaMix and they talked about resetting the thermal protection switch inside.  They suggested lifting the base down firmly, but gently, on the counter to help the internal switch reset.  I did it while they were on the phone and, sure enough, the machine came back to life.  Hope this helps.

Locking the jar on the base Oster Fusion 600W Blender


Here is the user manual for the Oster Fusion:
http://www.osterfusion.com/Manuals/MANUALS/BRLY07-Z00-000_43_29190737.PDF

It looks like you line up the threads, place the base on, and twist to tighten.

Hello, we stored the blender in a box w. the jar on the base and now the jar is stuck on the base...anything that might help?


1) Vinegar - apply vinegar to a rag and apply to any exposed areas - use a q-tip to dribble vinegar into hard-to-reach places. Let a cup of vinegar sit in jar itself. After 20 minutes, try to remove.

2) Hot Water in blender jar.

3) Freezer - don't let it sit too long - 10 mins tops - last resort.

If all else fails, break parts, and reorder them here:

Power flashes but doesnt start


Yes, I know what it is. On the base of the blender jar (the plastic base) there are some "fingers" that must contact the base to allow operation to take place. Turn it upside down and look at the little plastic "fingers" around the outside periphery of the plastic base.

These fingers tend to break over time... mine only has two left right now, and it only works in one particular position as a result.

Rotate the blender jar one spot at a time until you are able to operate it "normally". I use it for margaritas, and it won't allow me to push the button for Frozen Drink unless the jar is in the right position.

I am going to try and find a replacement base (or entire blender jar) somewhere... or else I will finally have to retire my favorite blender of all time!
