Sj9668, blender is leaking from bottom. I think i could go to the store and ask for a gasket? What would be the name of the piece to go inbetween the blades and the bottom hardware? slightly lose.


Most blenders have similar issues and it occurs when you have a binding and the seal gets hot and the rubber wears away.
in this photo I replaced this part it was only 9.98 on Amazon.
But it was for a black and decker. Because you mentioned the blade felt loose I would try that.
search Amazon for blender parts, maybe use model number of your blender. But save picture to phone and then you have idea what you might need.

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.

Leaking blender jar


If it is not the HUGE blade retaining ring under the beaker a bit loose then you will be buying new parts to repair it. The only other possibilities are beaker cracked and leaking (new beaker) or bearings & seals worn (new blade & bearing assembly)

We have an old Waring Futura 900 blender that leaks at the bottom of the glass around the beater blades. How do you repair? Is there a gasket?


Yes their is a gasket. However try to tied the hole blade kit a litle harder since it might be loose, it might be also dirty you can loose it clean it and put it back.
Have a visual insections since the glass might be broken a litle bit also.
Good luck

Unit seems to work fine, but when the pitcher is attached, the blade hardly spins. It seems like it is loose or something. I can manually spin the bottom piece of the blade assembly, but the blade itself...


Depending on the age of your blender, a new blade assembly may be available. I would recommend calling Kitchenaid Customer Service for pricing. Their toll-free telephone number is:

Waring Pro Blender is leaking and blade assembly is loose


I know this is an old, old post, but I could not find a solution anywhere, so hopefully this will help someone. We have a model 51BL25, similar to scottman55's blender, and it had the same problem. There are two separate nuts in the blade assembly. One holds the blade on, and the other holds the seal tight. When the latter gets loose, the blender shakes and leaks.
To fix it, first you have to remove the top nut holding the blade on. I had to get in there with pliers, but a ratchet with an extension would be perfect. This nut is right-handed ("normal"). Once that nut is loose, you can remove the nut and the blade. You will also want to remove the washer immediately under the blade (take note of which side goes up).
Now, you can pull the whole axle out by the wheel on bottom of the blender. This exposes a really thin, flat nut. In my case, this nut had come completely off, so nothing was really holding the seal together at all. Again, make sure you remember which direction the nut goes -- it is not quite symmetrical. That nut is what comes loose when the blender starts leaking. By the way, it is a left-handed nut, so it screws on counter-clockwise ("backwards"). Screw it in tight, then put the rest of the blade assembly back together, and your done. If you have the right tools, it should take only maybe 5 minutes.
Depending on your problem/model, this may or may not solve your problem. Hope it helps!

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.
