For some reason, my Oster blender's blades have jammed up. Even when there isn't anything in it, it won't spin anymore. The motor is running and everything else appears to be working okay. When the glass container isn't on top, the metal disk is spinning on the base. It is just the the blades that seem stuck.
If the problem is that the blades are jammed and you can't turn them manually, you can let it sit ( and dry out ) for a few days, or you can try adding some oil. I had the same problem and this worked. My problem now is that the blades don't reach to where the motor is turning, so even if they're not jammed the don't turn. If anyone knows and answer to this I'd appreciate it.

I don't have one, but inspect the shaft, it looks like there is a key on the shaft, then inspect the inside of the blade where it goes on top of the shaft, see if it looks like the shaft has spun out the blade and this is why it's not spinning.
Remove the blade and the container, then turn on and see if the shaft is spinning, it should be most are a direct drive.
So now if the shaft is spinning, that most likely means that the blade hole is broke where it sets on top of the shaft.
Look closely at the inside of the blade, you should see some type of damage like the groves are worn, I hate to see you buy one and it was the shaft that wore, but usually the blade will go first.
This is not really the solution it is just a better description of the problem that I am also having. This is a great blender however the part where the cup blades conect to the motor is made of plastic. So what has happened here is that the motor is fine, the cup is fine only the plastic part that makes the motor turn the blades has worn down therefore rendering the blender useless. I would like to know where I could get this small part to change on my blender!!!
Just fixed my blender. Motor was working fine, but the bladea wouldn't turn. I removed the blade piece from the base and tried moving the blades by hand and they wouldn't turn. So, I lubricated the blade at the location where it's supposed to rotate. I kept trying to move the blades by hand and gradually they started to loosen up. All fixed!!! I guess they get stuck after a few years of use.
This sounds like the black rubber coupler has broken. The teeth often get knocked off. Have a look at the part shown in hte pictures here: http://kitchenaidblenders.co.uk/Home/tabid/36/p/Two-%282%29-KitchenAid-Blender-Coupler-%2b-WS-Fitting-Tool-9704230_2plusWS/ProductID/175/Default.aspx
Is the black plastic part, seal, and glass portion snugly fitted together? If so, it's likely that the black plastic part isn't making contact with the pin. On mine I have to turn it about a quarter turn to lock it to the motor/ drive pin.
If I have a hard object such as ice cubes too firmed placed in the blender against the blade and the glass, I shake the container to loosen the materials and reseat it onto the drive pin as mentioned above.
this is getting more and more common there is a part between the motor and the drive gear that snaps for no reason . its job is to snap if the blades jam as a "fuse" to save your house from a overheating ,jammed motor . the problem is there are no parts to buy to fix this . if its new take it back to where you bought it . otherwise shipping it 2 ways for repair to the factory is sometimes as much or more as a new blender ........ i would recomend you do one of two things : go to a goodwill or other type shop and get a nice vintage blender , it will last forever ! or move up to a vita mix . its costly but it will realy last you ... this new made in china junk is just bad news even when it has the kitchen aid name on it . its still the same junk ..... good luck........
