There is no infomration to suggest that the blender blade could be removed for replacement of a seal

On page 27 of the pdf (page 24 if printed) there is contact information for ordering replacement parts. You might ask if the blade assemly can be ordered and replaced separtely but I believe you must replace trhe blender jar and blade unit as one piece.

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.

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,

When I turn my blender on, it runs for only a few seconds, then stops and all the lights on the panel flash on and off.


More often than not it will need the motor to be replaced, only Kitchen Aid parts will do, motors are usually unique to brands and models. Sometimes it can be the control/button panel but normally the motor.

Hi, you have broken the coupler (sometimes called a coupling). It is relatively cheap and easy to replace. In the UK, K A Parts Limited sell them here and provide removal instructions here.

There is a leak in the caraffe(or jar). It is at


Common issue with all of these carafe's. Once the jar starts to leak the bearings are shot and it is time to replace the jar. The bearings are non-replacable. Bad design in my opinion. I was able to get my last jar (I have been through 3 before the 5 year warranty went out) to last by hand washing and not putting it in the dishwasher, but after 4 years of use on this jar it failed too.

I'm having a hard time disassembling my Kitchen Aid blender. Does the container come apart from the screw on the underside, detaching the plastic from the glass?


Have a look at the instructions here:

This is for the glass jar which may be slightlt different.
