    Hi,

    To get the gasket, probably the best thing to do is to call the manufacturerer of your unit...they may even send it to you for free or just shipping...I did not check specifically for the gasket on the site, but had it to help with bigger parts like the sticks and glassware...thought it might be there....

    Look up the website of the maker of your unit and then call the customer service number...those numbers can be in the bottom header sometimes...a little hard to find...

Why doesn't blade spin?


Either the coupling from the motor with the fingers on it is not really attached to the motor shaft or the drive on the blade that engages with it is not attached to the blade shaft. One other thing is that on some models if the rubber jar seal between the beaker and the blade carrier is in the wrong place it can raise the blade drive to not engaging properly with the motor coupling. The gasket goes between the jar and the blade carrier, not under the blade carrier.

How do you mount up a blender?


The rubber ring goes between the jar and the blade assy housing. It never goes under the blade assy, always to the jar.

Blender glass jar is leaking at base


It will either be the rubber gasket (it goes between the glass jar and the blade assy) or it could be a worn bearing/bush around the chopping blade shaft. Replace either the gasket or the blade assy.

Leaking


Unfortunately Kitchenaid's design on those blenders is a one piece unit, over time the seals wear out and you have to replace the entire jar assembly, they usually run 40-50 dollars and can be found from several vendors.

Here is a link to the replacement jar on our site: KitchenAid Blade Jar Assembly W10555711

Leaks from the bottom of the glass jar. Bought a new gasket and it is worse than ever.


Are you sure you are installing the gasket correctly?

Leaks are usually the result of a misaligned or cross-threaded blender jar base or from the gasket being installed incorrectly. Make sure the gasket is installed between the blade assembly and the screw on base.

If this does not help, please reply or repost.

My new 5 speed blender is leaking help


Check that you have the seal between the collar and glass jar. It looks like the one here. If it missing the jar will leak badly. If this is not missing, please describe where the leak is.

There is a leak in the caraffe(or jar). It is at


Common issue with all of these carafe's. Once the jar starts to leak the bearings are shot and it is time to replace the jar. The bearings are non-replacable. Bad design in my opinion. I was able to get my last jar (I have been through 3 before the 5 year warranty went out) to last by hand washing and not putting it in the dishwasher, but after 4 years of use on this jar it failed too.

I have a Waring Pro Speciality Blender. After only a few times in use, the jar began leaking and I noticed glass shards around the outer rim of the jar. The blades are fixed on this model. I wrote to the...


If you don't see a physical crack or stress line on the jar, the issue could be either the gasket or blade assembly - Waring doesn't list any parts for sale for this model, but you may be able to call them and get these parts. There are not very many reviews on this particular Waring, so I am working with very limited information (and this is just my opinion), but the few that I have seen suggest that this might be the worst blender Waring ever made (in general, though, their blenders are usually top-notch).

Consumer Guide generally rates it high, but issues this:
"Cons: Strong churning motion requires you to hold the lid in place to prevent leakage through the top and limits the ingredients capacity, especially for hot mixtures"

The sites that invite the most user input into the rating generally give it a 2-star rating.

Waring seems to have escaped somewhat from their usual blender shape - and I have even heard that the shaft is made out of rubber, which is frightening.

Leaking blender


Mine also leaked from day 1. I just read in the manual to first place the bottom and blade assembly on the counter, then seat the gasket around the blade assembly, making sure it is just under the lip of the blade piece (careful, you have to maneuver around the blades). Then place the jar on the assembly and screw in tightly. This worked and I have no more leaks.
This is different than other blenders where you place the gasket on the jar and then attach the bottom. It is a poor design, but after what I paid for it, I am glad to be able to use it and not just trash it.
