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!

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 .

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:
Here is one for a Philips blender, but once again, not as detailed as I've ever seen:
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.
