How do I put the blade on my Ostis PowerMax clippers? I have tried with it on and off with no success. Thank you.


The blade release should be under the heel of the blade, just below where the blade tongue hinges. You normally only need to press it when removing the blade, when snapping the blade shut it is mostly not necessary to push it. They are a bit like a door latch that self lock when closing.

Can you repack the blade bearing on Vitamix Blenders?


On the Vitamix blender models we have here in NZ it is not possible to repack the bearings, you just purchase a new blade assembly complete with bearings and the driving clutch.

Blade on MD95 not spinning


The shaft has probably siezed at the bottom near the blade. The seal can fail and let liquid inside the shaft and gunge it up.
Take the orange handle apart, then unscrew the four steel pins, then pull out the motor. From the blade end, take the screw from the blade and prize it off. Then pull the shaft out from the top and clean it. It may be stuck - push a blunt nail or similar in the bottom to free it. Clean the shaft and solidified debris inside the tube. Then reassemble carefully.

Remove the 2 screws from the bottom of the base, release the 4 clips on each side and remove the bottom cover.
There is a fan blade attached to the bottom of the motor and a sensor on the side of it that senses the fan blade turning. If the sensor does not sense the fan blade turning, it assumes that the motor is locked up or 'overloaded'.
Check that the fan blade has not come loose from the motor shaft and reattach if necessary. Verify that the sensor is secure in it's housing next to the fan blade.
Reinstall the base cover and verify operation.

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?

My blender seems to spin without the glass blender "jar" in place. Once the blender is put on top, the blade will not spin.


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

Motor works but blade not spinning


Check and make sure that the shaft in the base housing spins. If it does, the blade assembly has become disconnected from it's shaft probably due to an improper spot weld or peening of the blades to the shaft, or has torn loose or ripped the splines out due to an immovable object trying to be spun. A jammed ice cube can do this. Blade assemblies can be had usually directly through the manufacturer and usually on line. If this has helped, please rate it accordingly.
