My clever hubby made a spanner (piece of metal with a slot cut into it) that fits round the spine under the plastic cog and then using pliers he could just unscrew the offending piece. Use masking tape to protect the top of the blender. Thanks for previous suggestions though as it saved going to a repairer and paying unnecessary costs. Cheers.

oops ! may have just pop the thermal fuse inside , but you might have to take apart and see what you did, if you got this cheap enough , might just buy another good luck >

When the lights are flashing, this does indicate that an electronic part has failed. This blender is no longer manufactured, so finding replacement parts for it may not come easily. Repair centers are available.

You may find a Kitchenaid certified service location using the following link:

your blade assembly is corroded. take it off, and using a rag, grab the blades. using another rag, grab the other end (probably rubber) and turn CLOCKWISE - it's threaded reverse, so you have to turn to the right to loosen, not the left like usual. I had to clean out the rod that connects to the blades - it was all nasty and corroded. I cleaned it with my Dremel and regreased with a tube of grease I keep in the garage, cleaned all other parts with some Dawn, dried well, reassembled, and works almost like new. I'm guessing I ran it too long without pulsing the motor and the heat corroded the rod that's connected to the blades. OR you can buy a replacement blade unit for about $10 online on a blender parts site

To take the blades off, grab the blades with a rag so you don't cut yourself, then grab the other end with a rag and turn CLOCKWISE - it's reverse threaded, so lefty loosey doesn't work here, it's lefty tighty, so turn to the right. Figured it out after an hour of mental anguish

Grab the blade with a rag so you don't cut yourself, then grab the clutch with another rag and turn CLOCKWISE. It's threaded reverse - took me hours to figure this out. I found grabbing with rags or maybe towels worked the best. That should work
