Question about Oster 465 Work Top Blender
Hi. I have a 2 speed Oster blender. The top part of the base broke off...I think it is called a coupler?! (Basically, the top part of the base that turns the blender broke.) The part that broke was a rubber circle that holds the little mushroom shaped part on to the base. Is this fixable?
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!
