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!

The only thing I can think of is to try to repair the separated rubber with one of the special adhesives.
This may not be physically, ie, damaged beyond repair, but if you think it might be repairable try something like JB Weld. They make an adhesive that sets up in 4 minutes. I have fixed some weird breaks with this stuff.

Hope this might help Good Luck Loring

SOURCE: replacing rubber drive coupling

I just replaced my rubber coupling / drive shaft. I had trouble getting inside my beehive blender. The trick was 1/4 socket screws inside of the feet of the base. Once those screws and feet are off, the cover came off of the bottom, exposing the motor.

The rubber coupling unscrews from the motor. If you still have something to grip on the coupling, you can do this with the motor in place. Just hold on to the metal fan blades on the bottom (or the nut in the middle of the fan) and the coupling on the top and unscrew. If you can't grip the coupling from the outside because it broke off, you may have to take out the motor to reach it. I expect it's possible, though, everything seemed to be put together with 1/4" nuts or philips screws.

I don't know if this will help or if this is what you are looking for. But today I was searching the web for the bottom piece that fits on the jar and saw this website has a lot of replacement parts for Oster blenders. Hope this is what you're looking for.
Good Luck

Yes, it is very easy to fix. You will need a new coupler, which is part number 9704230. There is a set of instructions with video here: http://www.kaparts.co.uk/Howtoremoveablendercoupler/tabid/219/Default.aspx

The cutters are part of the collar itself and not available as a separate part. If there is anything wrong with them you need to replace the whole collar. The collars are available on Amazon UK, K A Parts as well as other places.

How do I remove the coupler from a Kitchenaid blender, model: KSB560BW0. There seems to be confusion between different models and how to remove it. I have tried prying, and unscrewing clockwise, and...


I just worked on mine tonight. you have to take the bottom off by removing the four rubber feet and then the four screws under them. Now here's the tricky part; you'll need something to hold the jar coupler (round thing spins the blade). I was able to use a large pair of vice grips with some electrical tape wrapped around the jaws, to keep from damaging the coupler. Then take a slot edge screw driver and back out shaft from the coupler. FYI, the threads are reverse, so you will actually be turning the screwdriver clockwise to remove the coupler.

The black rubber that blender sits on is breaking off.


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:

Square drive pin for Osterizer blenders?


I simply slid a small screwdriver in through one of the holes under the base to prevent the fan from spinning and unscrewed the pin counterclockwise using some small channel lock pliers. No disassembly necessary.

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.
