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........ Please if this answer helped , please rate this 3 or 4 stars . and keep me in the paid answer department . A 1 or 2 may knock me down into the unpaid ranks. Thanks Cactus Bob .

your blade assembly is corroded. take it off, and using a rag, grab the blades. using another rag, grab the other end (probably rubber) and turn CLOCKWISE - it's threaded reverse, so you have to turn to the right to loosen, not the left like usual. I had to clean out the rod that connects to the blades - it was all nasty and corroded. I cleaned it with my Dremel and regreased with a tube of grease I keep in the garage, cleaned all other parts with some Dawn, dried well, reassembled, and works almost like new. I'm guessing I ran it too long without pulsing the motor and the heat corroded the rod that's connected to the blades. OR you can buy a replacement blade unit for about $10 online on a blender parts site

If you have a model with the detachable blades. Otherwise, you'd need to purchase the blending rod from www.wpcookware.com.
