Remove coupling drive on kitchenaid blender ksb5mc4

I need to replace the coupling drive on my kitchenaid blender (model# ksb5mc4), but I haven't been able to figure out how to remove the old one. I've taken off the bottom of the base but was unable to remove the coupling. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Kitchen Aid Blender Rubber Coupling replacement

Someone else suggested a link that explains exactly how to unthread the old coupling... and it works. It took me about 90 seconds to fix my blender. But in case that link is dead, here's a summary:

(1) Note that the coupling (the round part with teeth) is threaded to the blender motor in reverse to a standard threading. So it screws off just like a bottle top, but in a clockwise direction.

(2) place the blender base on a tabletop, facing you. You should probably unplug it.

(3) take a punch or a flathead screwdriver, and place it against one of the coupling teeth that is furtherest away from you.

(4) strike the back of the screwdriver with a small hammer or maillot. The result will spin coupling clockwise. It may take several tries, but the coupling will eventually spin clockwise faster than the motor, and it will begin to unthread.

(5) unscrew the old coupling, and screw the new coupling into place (counterclockwise). Note that the new coupling will tighten itself every time you use your blender, so no need to worry about tightening it too much.

(6) Make a smoothie to celebrate your success!

Here is the user manual for the Oster Fusion:

It looks like you line up the threads, place the base on, and twist to tighten.

SOURCE: The blender coupling on my

10-01-2009 Sara - see solution for rlaymon 1-9-08 "Top part of base broke off" by TanyaCS on 1-20-08 - good ideas. I just fixed mine - 2 hour job + half hour to put a new cord in. Like TanyaCS my broken coupling was rusted to shaft - used WD-40 twice and let sit - meanwhile took out motor and removed fan - kept screws and washers in order on workbench (kitchen counter) - the fan hole is "D" shaped - fan end of shaft also "D" shaped - I filed a "flat" on the other side of the factory "flat" (side of 'D' that is straight) - Used big pliers on broken coupling and adjustable wrench on on the "flats" on fan end of the shaft. Broken end came right off. New cord is 18 gauge extension cord capable of at least 6 amps. Cut off the un-needed end. Or order a replacement cord $4 when you order the rubber drive coupling $4, pin with slinger washer $3. Bet you also need new rubber feet - didn't buy for mine - wish I had. Bert

How do I remove the motor on kitchenaid Diamond blender, removing the coupler?


Put the base back on, determine which way the motor normally turns from the top when running. Drill a hole in the edge flange of the driving coupling. Stick a punch or screwdriver in the hole and whack the punch with a decent hammer to shock the coupling in the direction it normally will be turning. Sometimes it's a few whacks, sometimes a whole lot more but eventually they always come undone. Replace the coupling.

Pitcher stuck on base


You will likely need to replace the beaker anyway, the drive which is now melted to the motor coupling is only supplied as part of the beaker/blade assembly. You will also need a motor coupling.

The cutters are part of the collar itself and not available as a separate part. If there is anything wrong with them you need to replace the whole collar. The collars are available on Amazon UK, K A Parts as well as other places.

Hi,
You should be able to remove this assembly from the other parts - then you will have enough room to work on it.
Remember to clean the seal area if disturbed or it may leak.
