Question about KitchenAid KSB3 Classic Work Top Blender

1 Answer

Unit seems to work fine, but when the pitcher is attached, the blade hardly spins. It seems like it is loose or something. I can manually spin the bottom piece of the blade assembly, but the blade itself hardly turns.

Depending on the age of your blender, a new blade assembly may be available. I would recommend calling Kitchenaid Customer Service for pricing. Their toll-free telephone number is:

Model 239. Gear blade is working but when pitcher is attached, why won't blade spin?


One of the driving clutch parts is slipping, it will be either the coupling on the motor or the one on the blade. Sometimes a repair can involve replacing both as it is possible for one to damage the other.

I can manually turn the blades inside the glass pitcher and I can turn the piece on the top of the motor base into which the pitcher blade attachment fits.


One of the parts is not being driven properly. Either the clutch on the top of the motor is not really attached to the motor shaft OR the clutch on the bottom of the blade is not engaging with the motor clutch OR the blade clutch is not properly attached to the blade shaft. On some models if you put the rubber sealing ring in the wrong place between the beaker and the blade housing it is enough to lift the clutches apart. The rubber wing goes between the beaker and the blade housing, not between the blade housing and the blade retaining ring.

The blades stopped turning in the middle of blending a batch of hummus Its is a Kitchen Aid blender about 10 years old


Does the motor still work if you take the pitcher off of the base? If so, the rod that's in the blade assembly is probably corroded. The blades are connected to a metal rod that passes through a brass tube through to the piece that makes contact with the motor when you put the pitcher on the base. The grease wears down eventually and if you don't pulse and run the motor for a long time at once, the heat can corrode the bar and cause the blade to stop spinning. You can either disassemble the blade unit, or buy a new blade unit online. google blender parts and you can get one for $10

Motor works but blade not spinning


Check and make sure that the shaft in the base housing spins. If it does, the blade assembly has become disconnected from it's shaft probably due to an improper spot weld or peening of the blades to the shaft, or has torn loose or ripped the splines out due to an immovable object trying to be spun. A jammed ice cube can do this. Blade assemblies can be had usually directly through the manufacturer and usually on line. If this has helped, please rate it accordingly.

Connection between the motor and the blender unit (where the spinning takes place) - get extremely hot and blender does not seem to blend well. Motor works fine without the top - and the top seems to spin...


Replace the blade assembly immediately. They are available from Cuisinart's website. Sugars and other stuff can gum up the blade assembly over time, so it will periodically need to be replaced. A quick and easy way to keep the blade assembly clean and working longer is to put water and a drop of dishwashing soap in the blender after use and run the blender at low speed for 15-20 seconds - an old Osterizer trick.

Osterizer blender problem


Is the black plastic part, seal, and glass portion snugly fitted together? If so, it's likely that the black plastic part isn't making contact with the pin. On mine I have to turn it about a quarter turn to lock it to the motor/ drive pin.

If I have a hard object such as ice cubes too firmed placed in the blender against the blade and the glass, I shake the container to loosen the materials and reseat it onto the drive pin as mentioned above.

Blade not turning


the top rubber piece could be worn enough that it is not engaging the pitcher. look at it carefully and see if the "teeth" of the rubber disc on top of the base has not cracked and worn away. a picture of the new one can be seen on the parts websites to compare I spent $10.00 for my replacement but i found them at other sites for $6.00. you will need a very skinny 7mm open ended wrench to get the old one off and it is left handed threads that means clockwise will loosen not tighten the part.i ground down my wrench but an ignition wrench from an auto store will usually be thin enough to reach the flats on the shaft under the rubber disc
