Magimix blade is stuck

Blade is stick to the spindle of the Magimix.  Seems to be welded on.  Had the problem first with making dough, then stopped using the dough hook.  Latest problem occurred with making some pasta dough using the blades, when the the dough got into a ball, it was removed but the blade is stuck on.

You need to replace the spindle i'm afraid which gets worn after a time. There a UK company that sells replacements and tells you how to replace it. Not a big job though a bit tricky.

Pastry blade won't release

This is the kind of thing it would be very difficult to fix without being there in person. Do you still have the manual? It's possible there's some well hidden button or latch you have to hold in while you remove it. I tried to find a manual online, but was unsuccessful. I did see where you can purchase one - though I doubt you'll want to pay the $16 for it. But, just in case, here's the link:

How to remove a stuck blade from a magimix

Correct repair is to replace both the blade and the motor shaft so drilling a hole sideways thru top of the blade to give you something to grip against is easiest. You need to protect the bowl because it's not necessary to replace that part. A couple of bits of wood across the top either side and then a screwdriver into each side of the hole you have drilled should give you enough grip to lever the blade off.

The center spindle on my Magimix 5150 is stripped and needs to be replaced. Any idea if this is a do-it-yourself project if I can buy the part or should I send it out to be repaired?

Just researching the same problem. Apparently your can find the spare parts here:,-5100-spindle-cover-white,-Nylon-driveshaft-/product/104991/104991/
The old one is has push fit on an inner spindle and apparently can be prized off from outside without dismantling the machine. See the link below for further details.:

Motor fails to operate - very hit and miss

Make sure you are using the dough blade for dough instead of the regular blade - dough will cause the regular blade/assembly to gum up. This is actually a VERY high quality unit w/ a 20-year motor warranty. I would see if you get better results with the dough blade. Don't give up on it yet.
