Assemble it with motor secure and base & feet on. Drill 3 or 4mm hole in edge of coupling Put screwdriver into hole on a large angle and whack the handle to undo the coupling. You are whacking it to turn in the same direction it turns when the motor is running.

How do I remove the motor on kitchenaid Diamond blender, removing the coupler?


Put the base back on, determine which way the motor normally turns from the top when running. Drill a hole in the edge flange of the driving coupling. Stick a punch or screwdriver in the hole and whack the punch with a decent hammer to shock the coupling in the direction it normally will be turning. Sometimes it's a few whacks, sometimes a whole lot more but eventually they always come undone. Replace the coupling.

Changing the coupler


Lever it off with a screwdriver, it is aluminium and the threads on the ring will break away. Pick them out of the thread on the motor shaft and screw on a new coupling, it will be left hand thread.

My kitchenaid blender does not whizz around when it is put together> the couplking spins when the glass part is off that is, when it has nothing on it> the coupling does not look used or...


There are really only two reasons why the blades won't spin, either the coupler is broken, or the blade unit is damaged. Check the picture of the blade unit here: Check pictures of the coupler here: Hopefully it should be obvious whether the coupler is ok, if it is, are both wings on the wingnut under the blade unit?

I need a coupling for my kitchen aid blender model number KSB5WH3. Can you help?


The piece that you need is referred to as the coupler. The coupler is a breakway part that is designed to shear and/or wear down in the event that the blender is overloaded. This is to avoid damage to the motor.

The coupler may be purchased individually and is an easy repair that can be done at home. You may purchase the part and access step-by-step replacement instructions at the following link:

Replacing rubber drive coupling


My coupler was split in two, and I couldn't screw it off. I had to do the following:
1. Take the blender apart (mine had 2 screws on the bottom). 2. Remove the motor housing from the blender (mine was loose from removing the two screws earlier). 3. Remove the fan by removing the fan nut. 4. Take apart the motor housing. Mine had two machine screws with 1/4" hex heads holding a bracket that tied the two ends together. Once those two screws are removed, you can take the motor out of the housing. Be careful on the fan end of the motor, because it's got two spring loaded brushes that will come together once the motor is pulled through. 6. Once you have the motor out of the housing, you'll have something to grab onto so you'll be able to unscrew the broken coupler. I used a pair of channel locks and gently grasped the motor body, and then just used a regular pair of pliers to grab the broken coupler. It's regular thread (lefty lucy righty tighty), so twist accordingly.
Once you have the coupler off, just put everything back together. The hardest part is holding apart the spring loaded brushes while you push the fan end of the motor shaft back through the motor housing.
Took me about 20 minutes to do everything.
Good luck.

Rubber coupling


Yes.

The coupler - the black cylindrical piece that juts up from the motor base, and it has 6 teeth protruding inward toward the center of it - is responsible for transferring motion from the motor into the blade assembly. You physically set your jar on top of it.

KitchenAid KS85 Coupling Drive


When I took it to my authorized KitchenAid repair guy he said you need a 7mm wrench and you need to make sure it has a VERY thin depth/girth of the wrench. He actually held his wrench tip to a metal sander and made it thinner on each side without compromising the integrity of the torque of the wrench. This is to make it fit properly under the coupler and around the shaft. Anyway, can rip off the rubber cap of the coupler, hold the metal disc part TIGHT with pliers, and stick the wrench beelow the coupler and above the base body. (The rubber coupler left still on it might make it easy for the pliers to grab, but you rish tearing it and maybe stripping the shaft or your wrench. Make sure the rubber piece is good and strong if you are going to do this.) If you look hard at the rotator shaft sticking up, it is not completely round -- it has two flat sides (for the wrench to brace it). Lastly, to finally loosen the coupler off the shaft, you hold the wrench constant on the shaft and you twist the pliers CLOCKWISE, as though you would be tightening something. Again, LOOSEN=CLOCKWISE. You are not tightening... The coupler thread is opposite the normal threads we are used to. The coupler is lefty-tighty and righty-loosy. The trick, I believe is finding the perfect wrench so that you don't feel like you are stripping the shaft or wrench. Then you get your new coupler and lefty-tighty it on.

Aside: Looking at the coupler, after the rubber is pried off, you can imagine that there is a special tool that fits into the little holes to make the twisting easier. My repair guy thinks this was the original intent, but perhaps the special tools for this repair process are not available since now there is an newer KitchenAid blender out with a different coupler design (and repair process). But this works. I even bought an extra coupler off him to do it myself the next time. The "authorized" dealers are few and far between in my part of the country, my nearest 3 hours away. I couln't even find a closer "unauthorized" person to repair it! I loved this blender enough for the 3 hour trek, though.

Hope this helps!!
