Question about Krups 574 Power Xtreme VI Premium Work Top Blender
Hi, the blender doesnt work. When you press any button the motor or mechanisms don't work or move. When you press the pulse button, the light does come on. The plastic gear and motor both turn freely by hand. Any clue as to the problem? Thanks

The problem I had was removing the grey rubber drive. The solution is that it screws off not pops off. The trick is to use narrow needle nose pliers to grab the post that attaches to the motor and turn the rubber drive counter clockwise. Removing the motor becomes easy. Pull out the 4 rubber feet under the base and the screws will be exposed. However my situation was the grey drive gear was stripped and would bottom out. My solution was to use a same size lock washer as the washer between the post and the drive. So far so good! If it fails I will need to buy another grey drive. Myron

I carved off the rubber with a knife; inserted a flathead screwdriver throught the slot in the bottom to hold the gear in place; using pliers I unscrewed (COUNTERCLOCKWISE) the rubber gear.

Like you, I am all for repairing and keeping the world free of blenders that only need one part replaced. The rubber coupling was easily ordered online, the challenge I later found was to remove it without losing my sanity. After messing up the side grill of the blender pretty good, I realized there is an opening on the motor casing that allows access to a "gear" that is firmly attached to the axle where our little friend will hopefully screw on and restore the contraption to a working state. In order for you to see (which I must warn you, it's not much of a view) through the grill you will need a flashlight or book light. Towards the top of the aforementioned gear (not the rubber part) there is a groove in which a flat screwdriver can easily fit immobilizing the axle and allowing you to easily unscrew it. Oh, but wait, I forgot this is the faulty part and it will spin without the slightest torque on the axle thus never loosening or getting it unscrewed. My solution to this problem was to surgically remove as much rubber as possible to allow me to attach my vise grip to the nut and finally put this thing out of its misery. Using the same procedure of inserting the screwdriver to immobilize the axle I was able to screw the new part and voila the blender is fixed!!!!

Its a bit hard to remove it, but eventually it will come off.
Mine is a Krups GPA1 and the on/power button has two hard clips (each one with a large spring easy to work with) that need to be pulled out of their sockets.
