If it's like many other units, you can unscrew the bottom, BUT its a left-hand thread! (this is so as the blades spin colckwise, they don't unscrew the clear plastic body from the base if they trap stuff against the side).

I can manually turn the blades inside the glass pitcher and I can turn the piece on the top of the motor base into which the pitcher blade attachment fits.


One of the parts is not being driven properly. Either the clutch on the top of the motor is not really attached to the motor shaft OR the clutch on the bottom of the blade is not engaging with the motor clutch OR the blade clutch is not properly attached to the blade shaft. On some models if you put the rubber sealing ring in the wrong place between the beaker and the blade housing it is enough to lift the clutches apart. The rubber wing goes between the beaker and the blade housing, not between the blade housing and the blade retaining ring.

Leaking from around the base of the jug


When you clean your blender there is a rubber washer in between the blades and where they sit and the glass. Try pushing the blade assembly through the bottom and locate the large washer. Peal it off carefully under warm water then either try to replace it or clean it carefully in soapy dish water. Let me know if this helps, OK?

Motor base is working and container jar base turns by hand but won't work together to spin blades


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.

Unit seems to work fine, but when the pitcher is attached, the blade hardly spins. It seems like it is loose or something. I can manually spin the bottom piece of the blade assembly, but the blade itself...


Depending on the age of your blender, a new blade assembly may be available. I would recommend calling Kitchenaid Customer Service for pricing. Their toll-free telephone number is:

Blade not spinning


My Vitamix 3600 plus has same problem. Result of detachment of rubber coupling between lower splined socket from blade shaft. This is a tough rubber molding that takes tremendous punishment through years of smoothies. Mine showed some rust on the bottom of the blade shaft, where it parted. I tried gluing back together with super glue and tried to eyeball it. Of course it was off by a few degrees. When I reassembled and turned it on, what a racket of vibration! But it held. Amazing. Obviously not good to go though. So I took assembly all apart and redid it, chucking the shaft and the lower nut in the lathe. This time, all true on axis. Glue held for about a week. Right now I am regluing, this time with epoxy. We'll see how it holds up. And meanwhilst, I'm researching replacement parts! I'm not too optimistic about the epoxy.

Cannot remove the bottom of pitcher (the blade holder) for cleaning.


The blade at the bottom screws an abnormal way. If you counter clockwise the blade it does not work you need to screw it in the other direction.

Waring Pro MBB Blender- blade too tight


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

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!
