SOURCE: 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!

Usualy there is a rubber ring araound the bottom of the blade. If it gets worn out or out of posistion it may start to leak. Also if you dont have everything screwed in tight enought it could leak as well

SOURCE: GE Blender Jar loose rotator

Remove the bottom clean the unit fully. Add the bottom blad assebly and this will fix your problem. The "sooty" is plastic shavings. Take note that the fitting were the "jar" connects to the motor that this is not wearing away. The unit i have broke and i am unable to find a replacement blade assembly.

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 kitchen aid blender


Make sure that the big black nut under the jar is tight. It holds the blade and bearing assembly into the beaker. The odd one can leave the factory not properly tightened up and vibration loosens it off. Nobody is telling you it will be easy to tighten that nut up because it isn't.

Leaks at the bottom of the glass holder


I'm no expert but in my experience if it leaking at the bottom then either the jar /carafe has a few chips or cracks around the hole in the bottom that the blade fits through and in that case you need to replace the jar and your blade assembly may still be good and can be moved to a new jar/carafe. Or the blade assembly has come loose a little and need to be tightened or some the washers (usually the rubber ones) have worn out and need to be replaced. There's plenty of explanation here at amazon and else where on how to replace the assembly blade, move it to a new jar and tighten it down, etc. Hope this helps!

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.

Why does my blender leak?


hi,

sounds like the bearing assembly went, right where the motor connects to the blade, you can get a replacement base from them, have to find the model number and go to their website. doubt you burnt it up. cuisinarts supposedly are commercial quality.

I have a kitchen aid blender with a polycarbonate jar. The jar leaks at the blade. I noticed it has a plastic nut on the bottom with left hand threads. However the nut will not fit over the drive gear...


Older KitchenAid blenders had a jar that was made so the blade assembly could be removed for cleaning. On the newer models the blender jar and the blade assembly are all one unit so you have to purchase a new jar to get the blade assembly. All of this is dependent on which model of blender you have.

We would be happy to help you. Please a give us a call at 1-800-339-9297 we would be happy to help! One of our repair technicians can talk you through the repair over the phone free of charge. On the bottom of your blender is the model and serial numbers; have these handy when you call so we can help you order the correct part.

We have several blender jars on our Web site http://www.mendingshed.com/kitaidblen.html for KitchenAid blenders. If we don't have the blender jar that fits your model in-stock we can order it and ship it to you. Please contact us with any further questions. You can also email your model number or questions to customerservice@mendingshed.com


Sincerely,

Mendingshed.com Staff

The nut that holds the blade is loose and liquid gets through it. When I tried to just tighten the nut is spins but does not tighten. Is there a trick


It sounds like the blade has overheated at some point. When this happens the plastic melts and the seal is broken. The only repair is to replace the blade unit:
