Part removal and replacement

The black drive that is on top of the motor section has worn teeth, and I want to replace it. I think I can order a replacement part, but I am trying to figure out how the black gear rets removed from the top of the motor drive unit. Is there a screw hidden under the center? or is it just pressed down onto a shaft?

Re: part removal and replacement

The black plastic clutch has a left-handed brass threaded insert. Temporarily remove the motor to hold the shaft and remove the brass insert by rotating clockwise.

Mine broke and needed to be replaced as well. It is threaded onto the motor shaft.

Moter is working but dooh hook not working

hi if you still have problems email me and i will try and talk you through,
it may be the belt (teeth worn out) or the pulley (same problem).
the info given in your post is very vague.
if its the teeth on either the belt or pulley there is a simple fix.
remove bottom of base with screwdriver there should be screws under the feet of machine. use a bike valve screwdriver to remove the two remaining screws(depending on make and model)
remove belt, put RUBBER BAND

Can you replace a melted cord

I posted the reply pasted below on how to take the Bullet apart - really not difficult once you know where the hidden screws are apart. Once apart it easy to see where the power cable terminates and should be easily possible to connect in a new cable in its place.

Yes its easy to take the Magic Bullet apart.

1. First pry out the 4 black rubber feet on the base with small screwdriver and unscrew the 4 cross head screws revealed below.

2. Remove this black base to reveal the inner black base Unscrew the cable clamp - 2 screws and the 3 screws that retain the remaining black base to the body of the bullet - slide it off over the power cable.

3. Turn the bullet the proper way up and pry out the 3 white rubber bumpers with a screw driver blade that are set inside for the cup to rest on - each is located with two rubber pins. Once all 3 are removed you will reveal 3 more cross head screws - these countersunk - remove all 3 and then the internal motor will be free to lift out through the top of the Bullet casing.

4. Its possible to slip out the 3 white plastic sliders - taking care to note how they seat each on a small spring to cleanup both the slides and the sliders.

To re assemble step by step in reverse - noting to align the motor cable with the cutouts on the bullet base.

Hi my mixer suddenly wont spin and im not so sure how to fix it.

if its like mine the belt or pulley wear out mine took 8 years for it wear out. i couldnt find the parts so i took of the base(make sure its unplugged) remove the belt(hold one side of belt over the large cog and turn the cog, the belt should fall off) get a large rubber band (the width of the pulley)and twist the band over the pulley a number of times until it fits tightly over the pulley, replace belt and base and it should work.
this will work if the belt or pulley teeth are worn
my wife still cant beleive it worked

Cracked plastic sheath on the motor drive shaft

The shaft is spinning inside the sleeve. So is should not be hard to remove. With a DLC-7SP, I grabbed the spindle with some pliers, channel locks might do well and put a handle of a screwdriver between the pliers and the top deck and pried. Second attempt and it pulled up easily. Place the screwdriver beside one of the top deck screw covers to transfer force directly to the motor. Otherwise top deck would probably break.

Clean the old shaft to remove any contamination.

New one can be driven on with a hammer and block of wood.

I have a kenwood chef mod 703c the motor spins and drives the belt ok butwhen i engage the power switch the mixerhead does nothing, does not turn

The problem is that the clutchdog, which is normally engaged by the peg on the liquidiser cover, is worn. Remove the top casing of the machine by removing the 3 screws and all of the outlet covers. Then unscrew the top of the gear box and prise open carefully with a screwdriver to expose the gears. The clutch dog can be unscrewed. Remove the spring that is on the outside of the gearbox and replace it on the inside of the gearbox so that it pulls the clutch dog down permanently. This then needs to be screwed back once the top of the gearbox has been screwed back together. Sounds complicated but it will be obvious when you try it. The machine will then turn the main attachment hub but will remain engaged as for later model machines. Hope this helps. John UK

Sunbeam LC6200 won't turn off. Only runs at full speed unless the bowl lid is disengaged (the safety swtich still works). Have opened it up and the Pulse microswitch seems ok, as does the rotary speed/off...

OK this is the fix for the LC6200 that worked for me. Unscrew top cover (2 screws) then another screw holding internals to external case. Carefully remove safety switch lever (use long nose pliers from the top next to lever to squeeze plastic barb that holds the levers in to the plastic body). Remove all screws on the bottom. Open and undo the drive shaft pully nut clockwise. Pull out shaft and remove belt. Unscrew motor from chassis plate. From the bottom push out the plastic speed control dial with screwdriver. Remove motor and component boards. Check microswitches. Then remove diac DB3 and replace. Remove triac BT137 600v and replace. PS I used a 800v motorola MAC228 instead. Assemble in reverse. Good Luck.

How do i seperate the housing on a robot coupe processor

There are 4 rubber shoes on the bottom of the white or gray base. Twist & pull these out. With a TORX long shank screwdriver (nothing else works, trust me) there is a screw way down in each hole. After removing the screws a gentle but firm bump should loosen the base. If you ever need to replace the motor, on the top around the drive shaft you will see three round plugs/disks, remove them by prying up with a pocket knife (works best) this will give you access to the three motor bolts.

The plastic "clutch" with the teeth is probably cracked or stripped. you can buy a replacement.
