You have to unscrew and disassemble the blades - pretty easy, just take two rags and grab the blades with one (so you don't cut yourself), and then turn the rubber piece on the other side COUNTER CLOCKWISE, opposite of what you would do to loosen. the rod that runs in the middle that's connected to the blades on mine was all corroded, so I sprayed it down with WD-40, took my Dremel to it and smoothed out the corrosion, added some fresh grease ($2 tube goes a long way), washed the other parts with some Dawn and dried completely, reassembled and it runs much better! Not sure how long it will last, but I have a feeling that one time I ran the blender for a long time instead of pulsing, and the grease that came with it couldn't handle the heat from it turning so long. Anyway good luck!

You can also buy the "Blade + Gasket Assembly". Cuisinart is pretty good with parts and this only costs $10 + shipping in the US.

I'm searching here to try and find out how to disassemble my CBT-500 because it turns out the top link piece (the toothy bit on the base which turns the toothy bit on the jar) is loose and not spinning when the motor turns. Now I just need to replace that part -- this may be what's happening to yours as well.

Thanks for the suggestion about loosening in the opposite direction. We didn't completely take our blade apart, but loosening it a bit seemed to help. We worked the screw around then tightened it back up and it worked great.

We fiddled with ours this morning, reading all the advice on line. Took the plastic sheath out of the base to expose the metal ridged shaft. It seemed like this was where it wasn't engaging. My husband put a piece of electric tape around the shaft, replaced the sheath and Presto!

After cutting myself - morning repair prior to coffee is unsafe working condition - I took off the bottom gear/wheel thing-a-ma-jig off. Found this post - Thank you - sat the remaining unit in a bath (bowl) of grape seed oil, drizzling over the blade top where it wasn't reaching and then worked the apparatus a back and forth a few separate times, soaking in between. The oil worked its way in and then I reassembled and finished the smoothy. Daughter missed out - but wife and I enjoying her breakfast for her.

How do I remove old blade?


Hi Paul,
There is a collar on the base of the jar that screws onto the jar. You will need to unscrew the collar and fit a replacement blade. make sure the seal is replaced with the blade and the collar is screwed back securely.
See this link for the parts of the blender.

At 10 years you are heading to replace it. With the blender bowl removed, try turning the connector the goes to the blades. Then do the same with the connector on the base. Whichever one doesn't turn easily is the one that is failing. Usually there is corrosion in the spindle of the jug and this causes tightness which in turn causes the connectors to shred. The tightness cause friction, which makes the plastic parts get hot. The blade should spin easily, the connector on the motor, not quite so easy. On some blenders you can switch the base on with out the jug being on it. Run it for 30 seconds and then switch off. If it stop dead, then problem is with the base and the spindle that goes to the motor. In a catering environment, I had a Hamilton Beach, shatter the base connector after 2 years. With blenders, you get what you pay for, Cuisinart aren't bad, but there are better makes if you use them a lot.

I have an oster My Blend with the blade stuck in the base. Any ideas on how to get it out? Model BLSTPB-WBL


None of these people understand your question. The blade assembly is stuck in the blender base and will not untwist out of the base. The sport bottle untwists off the blade assembly leaving it in the blender base. I've tried using pliers on mine after taking it apart. Something is binding it from untwisting. What is the trick to untwist the blade assembly off the blender base?

Smart move. The blade assembly is almost frozen and the motor does not have enough torque.. You need to remove the blade assembly and completely clean out the bearing and reassemble after the Mr. clean operation. A lite dab of oil is also called for.

Blade not turning


Ouch. That doesn't sound good.
Is the blade seating & locking on the spindle? Try turning it with your hand (unplug the blender first!).
Examine the underside of the blade, and the spindle, for cracks.

If you find a problem here, it may be a simple matter of replacing the blade assembly.

If not, try running it dry... no blade, no container. Just short shots of one second. Is the spindle turning? If it turns, then put the container & blade back on... but just put water in the container.
If the blade turns, whipping the water (but doesn't turn if you put something more dense in it), that suggests that your bearings are going out.

In summary:
  • If the spindle turns but the blade doesn't turn, look at your blade assembly. (Plastic can hide a crack.)
  • If the spindle turns "sometimes", but not when subjected to resistance, then it's probably worn bearings.
  • If the spindle doesn't turn at all, then your blender will need to be professionally repaired or replaced.

My 5 speed KSBS kitchenaid blender is stuck together (glass and underneath part that would fit into motor base.


Have a look at the pictures here.
I think you are describing the blade unit's gasket being stuck. This can happen over time and especially if bits of food get stuck and harden. Try soaking for a long time in warm soapy water then keeping applying pressure until the seal between the gasket and jar gives.

My Cuisinart blender start leaking after a few months of use.


Here is a list of things to check for:
1. Make sure the blender base (black plastic) is tight to the jar.
2. Make sure you have installed the rubber washer between the blender blade assembly and the jar.
3. Make sure your rubber washer is free from any crud that may have accumulated and dried on. You may have to soak the washer and gently scrub with a scrubber sponge. If it's really cruddy you may have to repeat as necessary.
4. Make sure you have not caught any water (or other liquid) when filling it between the base and the jar. When you pour out the contents it will appear as if it is leaking.
