I have a Moulinex Optimax hand blender and use it a lot. Now the cutting/blending blade is broken (my son used the blender...) and I am trying to purchase a new attachment. Does anyone know where I can order one? I live Australia, but I can't find any parts here - I am happy to order it from anywhere.

Grease can only creep into the blender vase if the oil seal has worn out, or the blenders blade shaft is worn and wobbling. Try cleaning all parts in alcohol to soften the seals. Rebuild kits and replacement blades can be found here (http://www.brevilleusa.com/breville-parts/blending.html)
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
Replace the blade assembly immediately. They are available from Cuisinart's website. Sugars and other stuff can gum up the blade assembly over time, so it will periodically need to be replaced. A quick and easy way to keep the blade assembly clean and working longer is to put water and a drop of dishwashing soap in the blender after use and run the blender at low speed for 15-20 seconds - an old Osterizer trick.
Look at the underside of the blade shaft. The metal wing nut on the end of the shaft secures the blade assembly to cream coloured plastic blade base. The wing nut also transmits the drive from the rubber coupling on your blender to the blade shaft. The wing nut has a LEFT HAND thread. The left hand thread ensures the blade assembly does not unscrew during normal blender use.
Firstly disassemble the blender blade assembly. Place a folded tea towel over the blades and hold the blades firmly. If you do not use a tea towel you may cut yourself.
Grip the wing nut with your other hand and unscrew it CLOCKWISE. Remove the wing nut. You can now remove the blade from the plastic base.
Put the blade assembly in the new jug and offer up the plastic base from under the jug so that the blade shaft protudes enough for you to install the wing nut.
Screw the wing nut ANTI-CLOCKWISE to secure the blades to the plastic base.
Do not over tighten the wing nut; you may have to replace your jug again at some point.
first check the blades on the container thay should turn easy by hand if not thats your problem , you will need blades . blades turn easy ? you will need to replace the motor . the temp /overload has changed and is tripping to easy . this is common with people that use there vitamix for tough chores a lot . a lesser blender would just burn up a motor in a puff of smoke .a vitamix dies this way . in the end its the same you will need a motor
Hi, cauliflour is not compact no water mix, I have suggestion , cut it 1/2" long make it fine put in blender mix w/small amount of water then start. shut off mix with wooden mixer and start again then okey.
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.
