K-tec Multi-function Kitchen Machine blender will not blend (turn

The motor sounds strong. I think the blender insert on the machine is stripped. The motor runs but the blade does not turn. I called the Company and was told it would cost about 150.00 just to look at the thing. Is there a less expensive way to fix it? thanx

I can attach the immersion blender attachment but it does not turn on. The machine works fine with the mini-chopper attachment or the beaters. How can I fix this?


Hi
Make sure you use the pulse function of the power switch. Only this position (forward, away from you) will activate the immersion blender, and then at full speed only.

Seized mixer


It sounds like a stripped gear. Altho I can't find the parts diagram for the K5Awh I have found the diagram for the similar mixer with the lift bowl feature. Check the diagram below and make sure it is similar to your K5 machine since there are two designs for the motor on the lift bowl.

Look at the diagram below and find 9709231 worm gear item #18 in:

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10157992.pdf

It is the one which usually strips. It can be purchased online for between 12 and 25 dollars so check the part number and put it into google to find the best price. Let me know if the motor design is different from what is shown in this parts list.

Take it apart first and see which gear is stripped.

alternate parts list is:

and the gear number is

Noisy, high pitched whirring MUM6622UC/01 Bosch Universal Mixer


My wife's bosch mixer had a similar problem but it was a very loud grating problem. I talked to the bosch dealer in Utah, sorry, I've forgotten which one-- the one that does the repair. This is typically what happens: the seal on the blender wears out, which results in fluids from the blender dripping into the motor, onto the upper motor bearing. So, the upper bearing corrodes and is what is causing the bearing failure and the loud noise (needed hearing protection to operate it). I was lamenting the cost and time it would take to ship the mixer both directions (not actually that much compared to the price of the mixer), and he said he would sell me the bearing and the bottom replacement part of the blender that was leaking. So, I did the repair myself, but it took awhile, and I had to build a puller for the bearing to get it off the shaft, modifying a harbor freight gear puller. But it now is back to new. So, it was a success for me, but i would recommend anyone who isn't very mechanical to just send it off to Utah (again, I forgot the place, I think they talk about the shop in one of the other posts), and you will have a better than new machine.

Blakeslee (Kenwood) A717 mixer speed control


I had the same problem. Had to strip the machine down to get to the motor. On the top is a moving plate with various capacitors etc mounted. On the front side there was a Capacitor (At least I think it was) with the wire broken.
I resoldered it and the machine now works fine.

I hope this helps

Oster Kitchen Center won't hold a steady speed


My wifes Oster Kitchen Center slowed down and I think finally stopped. I say I think it did because I took it apart two years ago and am finally finding the time to get it back together. I cleaned it, checked the brushes on the motor(all of this is in the base unit with the control buttons on it. The upper blender/beater arm has no electrics in it.) The brushes were coated with some kind of dried crusty stuff which was keeping them from contacting the motor.I put it back together and tried it but it only hummed and did not move.
I took it apart again, this time everything came out. Motor, electric wiring plus the metal gearbox attached to the motor which drives the blender and the upper arm. I took the transmission apart (it's attached to the motor in the base unit) and found the gears in it were so gummed up with who knows what. Probably everything that leaked out of the blender.
You see, what happens is that the seal between the blender black base and the glass jar started to leak after a few years but we don't notice it. Maybe we did but we cleaned it and we thought it was all good. But the liquid can leak down into the bottom unit around the drive teeth and that little square drive that the blender locks onto. And then it goes into the gearbox and the motor. So it is a major job to clean it. Since I don't have a manual for disassembling the lower base unit, I'm just putting it back together. I cleaned all the gunk out, put some grease on the gears and the gearbox is working better but I fear not perfect. It is 30 years old!! So unless you take it apart yourself or find an appliance repair shop (is there such a place anymore?) it might not be worth the effort. But it is do-able. How long have you got?

Replacement parts for K-Tec Kitchen Machine


I just talked with Blendtec about this issue, since I had the same problem. I asked if there was a stronger drive shaft since my previous Kitchen Champ model had a different, sturdier drive shaft that lasted about ten years.

The company representative explained that the new drive shaft is designed to break, but that's to save the motor. If the stress on the drive shaft could damage or cause excessive wear to the motor, the drive shaft breaks instead.

She also recommended using just enough flour so that the bread dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. The reason most drive shafts experience too much stress is due to too much flour in the recipe.

To replace the drive shaft, go to http://www.blendtec.com/Parts.aspx or call Blendtec at 1-800-Blendtec

The only part that will work for the Kitchen Champ is the Drive Shaft (Champ). Apparently, the German drive shaft -- which looks like the one from my old Kitchen Champ -- is not interchangeable.

Since this is my second Kitchen Champ and my previous one lasted over ten years, I'm delighted to understand what went wrong. I'm hopeful that using less flour will prevent another problem. And, I'm very pleased with how helpful Blendtec was, explaining this to me.
