I need the black bakelite cog on top of the Magic Bullet drive shaft. Mine split into four pieces as did my daughter's Magic Bullet power base. This appears to be the "Achilles Heel" of the Magic Bullet. Could it not be constructed of a very hard rubber composotion? Pass this suggestion on to the manufacturers of the Magic Bullet!

    Manufacturer should be advised of this flaw in the Magic Bullet. If my new one fails again, I'll never purchase another Magic Bullet and will let other people know of this flaw.

    Same problem ! I managed for a few months by unscrewing the lesser-used one from the second base and substituting it for the worn one, but the same happened to it. I believe the material IS a Relatively hard durometer cast urethane, and it is meant to fail rather than the more difficult part to replace -the drive cog. BUT where can you get replacements ? And, I don't want to stop grinding ice cubes to make my smoothies !

My solution is that I purchased a new Magic Bullet power base and therefore won't require solution from your experts.

Magic bullet base is full of particles


Yes its easy to take the Magic Bullet apart.

1. First pry out the 4 black rubber feet on the base with small screwdriver and unscrew the 4 cross head screws revealed below.

2. Remove this black base to reveal the inner black base Unscrew the cable clamp - 2 screws and the 3 screws that retain the remaining black base to the body of the bullet - slide it off over the power cable.

3. Turn the bullet the proper way up and pry out the 3 white rubber bumpers with a screw driver blade that are set inside for the cup to rest on - each is located with two rubber pins. Once all 3 are removed you will reveal 3 more cross head screws - these countersunk - remove all 3 and then the internal motor will be free to lift out through the top of the Bullet casing.

4. Its possible to slip out the 3 white plastic sliders - taking care to note how they seat each on a small spring to cleanup both the slides and the sliders.

To re assemble step by step in reverse - noting to align the motor cable with the cutouts on the bullet base.

Can you replace a melted cord


I posted the reply pasted below on how to take the Bullet apart - really not difficult once you know where the hidden screws are apart. Once apart it easy to see where the power cable terminates and should be easily possible to connect in a new cable in its place.

How do I remove the agitator from my Kenmore Washer model number 110.24962300 to clean under it as clothes are coming out with flakes of dirt and soap-scum pieces etc. on them?


Follow these detailed step-by-step instructions to help you locate and replace your Kenmore worn agitator cogs:
  1. Before you begin this or any other repair, disconnect the power supply to your washing machine. Either unplug the unit from the wall outlet, trip the appropriate switch in your fuse panel, or remove the correct fuse from your home's fuse box.
  2. Raise the lid of your washing machine, and if your model uses a fabric softener dispenser, remove it from the top of the agitator by pulling it straight up and off.
  3. Pry off the agitator's cap (if there is one) by wedging a small flat head screwdriver into the slot between the agitator and the cap.
  4. Reach into the agitator top and pull up on the barrier cap and its seal (also called a gasket) to remove them.
  5. Use a socket wrench with an extension or a nut driver to remove the stud and the seal that hold the agitator top to the shaft of the agitator base.
  6. Remove the agitator top by pulling it up off the agitator base. Turn the agitator top over, enabling the cam and the worn directional cogs to slide out. Examine the cam for wear, it also may need replacing.
  7. Attach each of the new directional cogs to the cam. The small round piece at the base of each 'ear' is fitted into one of the cam's four slots. Your model may or may not make use of a black plastic agitator cam bearing. This cam bearing is used to help hold the cogs in place. If your model uses one, make sure you put it back on during the reassembly process.
  8. Carefully insert the cam and new directional cogs into the agitator top the same way they came out. Place the agitator top over the agitator base. There are tabs on the top of the agitator base that line up with, and fit into, the slots of the cam.
  9. If the cogs fall out of place during re-assembly, you will have to take the cam out of the agitator top again and re-insert the cogs.
  10. Push down on the cam until its slots and the base's tabs snap together.
  11. Insert the stud and seal into the shaft and use your wrench or nut driver to tighten.
  12. Make sure the black rubber gasket (seal) is situated properly in the groove of the barrier cap. Then push the barrier cap and seal down into the agitator past the holes.
  13. Replace the agitator's cap or fabric dispenser, whichever your model uses.
  14. Close the lid of your washing machine. Reconnect the power supply and test the machine to make sure it is working properly.
That should do the job for You. Hope this was helpful
