What you need to do is turn them by hand each time you use it, before you put your food in. Sugars and other deposits are often left around the blade assembly when you mix smoothies and stuff. Often this sugar is difficult to clean. Turn them by hand first to break the sugar molecules, then when you are done I would add 2 inches of water and a drop of soap. Run it for about 20 seconds and rinse. That should help the next time you use it. It also helps to use it daily. It keeps the molecules from hardening.

Blender jar leaks


Check the blade assembly if it is loose tighten it up. If it is worn out or cannot be tightened up then buy another jug complete with blade. If it is the glass jug model then the blade assembly is available without the jug and they also have a replaceable seal at the base.

I have been given a Kenwood BL300 blender. After using it to make breadcrumbs, I undid it somehow and now I can't get it back together. Can't remember if the blade goes straight into the base or the jug,...


You need to unfasten the white base from the clear jug, then the rotating blade will sit inside the white base, with the blade facing upwards. The white rubber flange goes in next. Then screw the assembled base back into the clear jug. The jug should then fit on to the stand.

My blendtec blender doesn't blend as well as it once did. The motor seems to be running fine, but I am not sure if the blades are spinning properly.


You have already found what is the problem the blades.
The blades after a lot of working hours with ice they have mainly three problems.
One the sharp adjes have created a lot of teeths and are not so sharp any more so the blending is not smooth anymore.
Second problem they have loose a title so they have move from corect place some milimeters and this change the wave motion and again the beleding is not so smooth as before.
Third the blades are secure on an axis which is located in two bearings which have een wearing out so the rotating motion of the blades again is not so smooth as before.
So if you are not able to fix the blades kit or to find someone in your area to do it profetionaly and cheap one good idea is to buy a new blades kid.
Good luck

How to change the blade


You can't. The Jars have perfectly balanced blades that cannot be changed. A replacement jar from Blendtec is cheaper than a replacement blade assembly from other manufacturers. 1-800-253-6383 is the customer service number.

Broken glass jug on kitchenaid blender model 5ksb2aer4


Look at the underside of the blade shaft. The metal wing nut on the end of the shaft secures the blade assembly to cream coloured plastic blade base. The wing nut also transmits the drive from the rubber coupling on your blender to the blade shaft. The wing nut has a LEFT HAND thread.
The left hand thread ensures the blade assembly does not unscrew during normal blender use.

Firstly disassemble the blender blade assembly. Place a folded tea towel over the blades and hold the blades firmly. If you do not use a tea towel you may cut yourself.

Grip the wing nut with your other hand and unscrew it CLOCKWISE.
Remove the wing nut. You can now remove the blade from the plastic base.

Put the blade assembly in the new jug and offer up the plastic base from under the jug so that the blade shaft protudes enough for you to install the wing nut.

Screw the wing nut ANTI-CLOCKWISE to secure the blades to the plastic base.

Do not over tighten the wing nut; you may have to replace your jug again at some point.

The product has a 3-year warranty:
A reading of “OVERLOAD” indicates an overload on the motor. Turn off

over-load condition. Check the blender jar for blockage. If overload condition
re-occurs, contact your Blendtec service agent.

Blendtec blender jug split


I wouldn't fix the jar, just buy a new one. A crack, though rare, could possibly harbor bacteria. You could try using heat and melting it, but it wouldn't work as well. Your jar may still be under warranty, call Blendtec at 801-222-0888
