Can't get my back to basics blender opened

I have a back to basics blender express and I can't get it opened to fix it. I have removed all the screws on the bottom but I still can't get the bottom off. Does anyone have any ideas?

    HELP! I've removed the screws as well and can't get the bottom off because I can't get the gray gear that the jug fits onto off. I just need to clean the buttons inside--they're sticking!

I removed the motor coupling and after troubleshooting the blender found that the thermal fuse was blown. I think Radio Shack might have the fuse I need if not I know an online site that definitely does.

Two buttons are stuck in on my kitchen aid blender.


I have been searching for an answer to this same problem. My chop and mix buttons were stuck and I was getting no power or blinking lights. After finding no help on-line, I decided to take it apart and fix myself. It was easy and it worked!
1. Take the bottom of the mixer off by removing the rubber foot pads and remove the exposed 4 screws.
2. Remove the 3 sets of wires that are attached to the inside panel with clips. Very easy to remove, just squeeze at the base of the clips and pull up.
3. Remove the 2 screws holding that panel in place and gently lift off.
4. Remove the panel found under the top panel by also removing 2 screws. When you flip this panel over you will see what operates the switches.
In my blender the black plastic nubs that push against the buttons that were stuck and got twisted off kilter so they were not resetting properly. I just put a small screwdriver in there to try and straighten them as much as possible. All of these steps will be obvious as you disassemble the blender.
5. Push on the back of the buttons that were stuck to get them unstuck before reassembling everything back together.
I was surprised how easy a fix this was and how obvious what the problem was when I opened the blender up. No soldering or fancy tools needed, just 5-10 minutes and a phillips head screwdriver!
Good luck!

Hi, I have a Back to Basics BPE3BRA3 Blender Express Plus blender.Can I get the motor base as replacement somewhere? All the jars and blade bases are like new.


I contacted the Focus Electric Company which has owned Back to Basics now.
They guarenteed to replace the motor if it was purchased within a year.
I sent them the receipt and they confirmed that they ll send me the same within 7-10 days.

Thanks.

Back to Basics Blender Express won't come on, it worked last week now will not even come on. Does anyone have any ideas how to repair or what it could be?


I generally agree with Guest's suggestion - it is FAR cheaper to replace this blender than to repair it, but you can call the manufacturer at 866-290-1851 to explore your options.

Top part of base broke off


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!
