I had this same problem. This is fixable if you are willing. I repaired mine because I am stubborn and I bought mine used and had no warranty. I found that if you pull out the bottom of the coffee grinder you can access the inside motor assembly. * Note, that the bottom is designed to pull out a couple inches and it acts as an electric cord caddy. You must carefully pry it all the way out. It is a good idea to put a pencil mark for reference on the bottom of the coffee grinder that lines up with the bottom lid piece you are removing because you must install the bottom lid in the same orientation in which you removed it. There is a slot where the electric cord sits in as well so pay attention as you pull it out. It is likely you will just have to yank the plastic bottom cover out. This will probably snap an internal lock tab off the bottom cover, as did happen with mine, but it still sat securely enough back inside after the repair was complete for my liking. After you fix your blade you can easily just glue the bottom cover on if you damage your lock tabs and then just do with out the cord caddy feature.(thats for little old ladies and neat freaks any way) Now that you have the bottom cover removed, Look at the motor spindle, it is in the center of the bottom of the motor. There is a slot in it. Use a screwdriver in this slot to keep it from spinning while you grab the hard plastic cone that sits on top of the grinder blade. Try putting your pliers down flush to the very bottom of the grinder before you grip the blade assembly, as it will minimize any gouging of the plastic cone on the top of the blade assembly. There are no flats on this cone so you cant use a socket or nut driver. Spin thescrew-driver counter- clockwise until the blade comes off. The blade assembly is threaded on to the motor spindle and it comes off easily. I had to lay my grinder on the floor and kneel on it to free my hands to remove the blade. So it can be done alone. Now that you have the blade off you will see that the blade has worked itself free and is just floating around in the threaded cone. Now you can either contact Bodum and demand a new blade assembly or you can repair the blade assembly as well. I cut off the plastic cone and was left with a threaded insert, I was able to configure nuts and washers and reattached the blade without the plastic cone material. It may not be as prettty but it will never break again! Like I said I am stubborn......

How do I fix a loose blade.


By loose blade I assume you mean that it can be moved up and down at the tip of the blade. It is most unlikely that the central nut has come loose, but check anyway. If this nut is tight and the shaft is loose in the bearing this means the bearing has worn out. Remove the deck from the machine. Photograph the run of the belt as this has to be removed. Also the direction of the grease nipple. Remove pulley from loose spindle. Turn deck on its edge or mount on two saw horses or similar so you can get to top and bottom of spindle bolts. Remove cutting blade. Remove spindle housing and clean area so no rubbish gets caught when reassembling. Otherwise spindle may be set different and mower will leave a line of differing cut. Take spindle to vise and remove any retaining nuts or circlips from shaft and clean as clean as new. Apply light oil or CRC etc to help move bearing along shaft. Open vise wider that outside of bearing, usually 44 to 50mm [1 3/4" to 2"] and refit nut on thread. Check nut is always spaced free of top bearing. With cushion of hardwood or nylon tap the shaft to move it down with lower bearing coming out of spindle housing. To remove top bearing from housing, turn housing up other way and use a wooden shaft such as a broom handle to tap bearing free of housing. Clean out grease and replace when reassembling. Do not reuse other bearing. They are cheap and likely to fail shortly anyway. These bearings usually have no seals on inside.

I thought the drivers side blade had become loose, causing it to gouge into the lawn. I checked the blade rotation, and it seems that the blade 'shaft' is tweaked? Is this possible? The blade mounts tight...


It could be spindle or blade is bent. I would check blade first then spindle. This is not uncommon. Hitting a branch or something while mowing can bend one of these. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Need to change the spindles on model 917.273220 craftsman tractor


The job is much easier and safer with compressed air and an impact. I would try really hard to find someone with air to borrow but if no air is available then wedge a piece of 4x4 between the blade and deck to keep the blade from spinning. BEWARE, the board can pop out and the spinning blade can be dangerous. Remove the deck from the unit. Remove the pulley first, hold the blade with your hand ( only if you have air/ impact) to prevent the spindle from spinning. Note the washer under the pulley. Then remove the blade, then the spindle bolts. Most AYP replacement spindles now come pretapped but if not place spindle in a vice and use one of the old spindle bolts ( they are self tapping) to make threads in the mounting holes. Then mount the new spindle in reverse order being sure to instal the washer between the spindle housing and the pulley. Again hold the blade with one hand and securely tighten the pulley nut with an impact. Also the unit probably has a blade brake arm and the spring holder is mounted by one of the spindle mounting bolts. Pay attention to its positioning before removal. If you have a heavy duty replacement spindle the notch on the bracket may not fit the new spindle. with a file or grinding wheel enlarge the notch on the bracket to fit.

How to remove cv joint in 1999 grandam


Remove the tire . remove the tie rod from the spindle. To get the tie rod out of the spindle take a hammer and hit the part only that is holding the tie rod it will pop loose after a few blows. remove the bracket and caliper, spread the caliper a little so it will let loose of the rotor. remove the rotor. Remove the nut for the cv axle. remove the bolts hold the strut to the spindle. separate the two. You may have to hit the axle end to get it loose from the spindle. Now you have to muscle the axle out of the spindle. turn the spindle and start pushing or pulling the axle out, it's a pain but it will come out. Once you have it out of the spindle you will have to pry it out of the transmission. It is held in by a metal oring that contracts to let it out. For some reason the passenger side always seems harder to get out than the drivers side. But they do come out. When putting in the new one make sure that it is all the way in the transmission. If you have to hit the new one use a block of wood against the threads. You don't want to damage them. This seems to be a lot, but It usually takes about an hour.

How to engage spindle lock?


The spindle lock should be a short rod that sticks out on the motor side of the saw. Push this in and rotate the blade until the rod pushes in and locks the spindle. This will hold it tight so you can use a wrench on the nut that holds the blade on.

How do you change the blade on a GMC 10 inch cmpund miter saw?


With the saw unplugged, push the spindle lock in on the motor side of the saw (a short black rod) while turning the blade by hand. The spindle lock will seat and hold the blade still so that you can use a wrench to loosen the nut that holds the blade on. Use the spindle lock again for tightening a new blade on the saw.

Blade becomes loose after 4-5 cuts


Check to see if the arbor, nut or spindle is worn. You may want to get a new shouldered nut for it. Also see if running loose has damaged the shoulder on the spindle. Check that the correct size of arbor is being used on the blade.

I used the shredding blade and now can't get the inside spindle to pop off or the bowl. It will still work if I put the blade in and turn it on. How can I get the spindle and bowl loose?


I posted about this somewhere else. Sounds simple but it worked for me. Give the spindle a good whack with a wooden spoon all the way around and it will come loose.
