Waring Pro MBB Blender- blade too tight

We've been really happy with our Waring Pro blender for the past year and a half- but now I notice that the blade is not turning easily. I have no idea how to loosen it- would WD40 work? Simply trying to loosen the blades with pliers has proved impossible. Is there another tool we should try to use? Or just take it to a service center?

I was just able to fix mine. You'll need the following: two wrenches (almost any type), steel wool, and vegetable oil.

1. Clamp the hexagonal nut inside the bottom of the pitcher with one wrench and place the jaws of the other wrench between the "spokes" of the wheel at the outside bottom of the pitcher.
2. Turn either counter-clockwise until the hex nut comes off. At this point, you should be able to pull the bottom piece out from the bottom. Pay attention to the order and orientation of the parts inside the pitcher as they may fall out now.
3. Dry off the shaft and rub it with some ordinary steel wool (think SOS pads).
4. Twist a small amount of the steel wool and run it back and forth through the hole the shaft goes through.
5. Wipe both clean with a clean cloth or napkin.
6. Rub a little vegetable oil on the shaft.
7. Place the shaft back in the hole and test the movement. It should be like new again.
8. Reassemble the blender.

Hope this helps,

John

If you can get the shaft out of its bearing, you can clean the shaft with steel wool. You may also have to scrape the inside of the bearing with a small rat-tail file.
Put some vegetable oil on the shaft and reassemble.

DO NOT USE WD-40 OR 3-IN-1 OIL! This mechanism will be in contact with food/beverages, so you want a lubricant that is safe for human consumption.

If the problem continues to occur, I would buy a replacement. In some models, this means buying a whole pitcher assembly.

I have a waring pro blender Model WF2111211 It's glass he blade part doesnt come off. motor runs fine but blade really tight won't spin so the motor smells burn out trying to get it to free.


Heat up a cup of water in microwave until boiling in a two cup Pyrex measuring cup. Add one more cup of tap water. Our it in the blender and let it soak. If it doesn't work, repeat but with less tap water.

Waring pro wpb blender emit burning smoke and smell when i was blending ...


Obviously the motor winding is burned out. it needs to be rewound. This is can be done only by repair men who regularly wind motors.

All blenders have one thing in common. They draw more than rated current when running slow. If u continued using it inspite of noticing low speed then the it results in burnt motor winding as is the case now.

Also the blenders should not be run on no load, which will cause meahanical damage to fan and bearings.

I have a Waring Pro Speciality Blender. After only a few times in use, the jar began leaking and I noticed glass shards around the outer rim of the jar. The blades are fixed on this model. I wrote to the...


If you don't see a physical crack or stress line on the jar, the issue could be either the gasket or blade assembly - Waring doesn't list any parts for sale for this model, but you may be able to call them and get these parts. There are not very many reviews on this particular Waring, so I am working with very limited information (and this is just my opinion), but the few that I have seen suggest that this might be the worst blender Waring ever made (in general, though, their blenders are usually top-notch).

Consumer Guide generally rates it high, but issues this:
"Cons: Strong churning motion requires you to hold the lid in place to prevent leakage through the top and limits the ingredients capacity, especially for hot mixtures"

The sites that invite the most user input into the rating generally give it a 2-star rating.

Waring seems to have escaped somewhat from their usual blender shape - and I have even heard that the shaft is made out of rubber, which is frightening.

Waring Pro Blender is leaking and blade assembly is loose


I know this is an old, old post, but I could not find a solution anywhere, so hopefully this will help someone. We have a model 51BL25, similar to scottman55's blender, and it had the same problem. There are two separate nuts in the blade assembly. One holds the blade on, and the other holds the seal tight. When the latter gets loose, the blender shakes and leaks.
To fix it, first you have to remove the top nut holding the blade on. I had to get in there with pliers, but a ratchet with an extension would be perfect. This nut is right-handed ("normal"). Once that nut is loose, you can remove the nut and the blade. You will also want to remove the washer immediately under the blade (take note of which side goes up).
Now, you can pull the whole axle out by the wheel on bottom of the blender. This exposes a really thin, flat nut. In my case, this nut had come completely off, so nothing was really holding the seal together at all. Again, make sure you remember which direction the nut goes -- it is not quite symmetrical. That nut is what comes loose when the blender starts leaking. By the way, it is a left-handed nut, so it screws on counter-clockwise ("backwards"). Screw it in tight, then put the rest of the blade assembly back together, and your done. If you have the right tools, it should take only maybe 5 minutes.
Depending on your problem/model, this may or may not solve your problem. Hope it helps!

Waring blender - new blade


I just figured it out. The key is you need to think in terms of keeping the blades and the large washers separate. Here's what you do.
Thread the blade through the glass and use the white rubber gaskets against the glass and the stainless gaskets against the hardware. Then tighten the whole enchilada to the blender with the main nut (that goes on the bottom outside of the blender). Then once that's nice and tight tighten the flange that catches the blender teeth to the remaining portion of the protruding threads. Make sure you use the copper colored gasket first then the stainless washer then the stainless flange. Tighten that real good and you should be good to go.
To check if you've done it right spin the flange. If the blades spin independent of everything else you're good to blend away!

Stopped blending


Exact same problem.  Turned out the threaded shaft that holds the blades was broken so tightening the nut on the top doesn't really help.  Just ordered a new blade assembly from www.smallappliance.com.  Mine was the Waring 007314W Blender Cutting Assembly but there is also an older one for earlier models.  Don't know if it will work yet (assume it will), but cheaper than buying a new blender.
