Take it apart and pit the gasket on the other side of the cutter assembly.

The lid gasket is not available as a separate piece - an entire lid would have to be purchased. Kitchenaid still has inventory on replacement lids. If you'd like to order, you may call Kitchenaid Customer Service. Their toll-free telephone number is:

1.800.541.6390.

If you would prefer, you may also try MENDINGSHED.COM. They carry a large inventory of Kitchenaid parts, even if the model is out of manufacture.

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:

The piece that you need is referred to as the coupler. The coupler is a breakway part that is designed to shear and/or wear down in the event that the blender is overloaded. This is to avoid damage to the motor.

The coupler may be purchased individually and is an easy repair that can be done at home. You may purchase the part and access step-by-step replacement instructions at the following link:

to see if its the Triac or just the off button perform this: connect the blender,while pressing the off button press the on button; if the blender stays on and you dont hear the relay function (Light ticky sound) maybe the off button get a broken solder point. But if the relay is functioning and there is no way to change the speed the problen is the TRIAC. This is a small piece on PCB with a heat sink

Alternating blinking lights on a Kitchenaid blender indicate a bad circuit board which is unable to run the motor properly. Unplug the blender, take the jar off, and turn the spindle by hand. Then plug it back in. If it does not work properly, try a different outlet (perhaps not in the kitchen). If nothing works, the blender needs to be repaired.

You will likely need to replace the beaker anyway, the drive which is now melted to the motor coupling is only supplied as part of the beaker/blade assembly. You will also need a motor coupling.

KitchenAid... | Answered on Apr 09, 2018


If it is not something to do with the coupling (rubber one on the jug bottom and hard plastic one on top of the motor) then I'd be checking that the cutter shaft is not getting hot. If it was the motor playing up normally they pop into error and stop with flashing lights. The switch panels give very little trouble.

I would say pull it apart again and fiddle about with it a bit paying some attention to that spring loaded ring that's causing you grief. I don't have one here to look at but I know I've seen that problem before and it's something to do with that ring underneath needing to be turned to a certain position so that it engages properly. There are some notches in it that need to be in a p[articular position. We never saw that version for too long, the following model had a plastic beaker without all that rubbish on the bottom.

You will probably fine that the fuse gear has failed. If the motor runs and the planetary and front drive does not turn then the solution is only going to be found inside the gearbox.

KitchenAid... | Answered on Mar 24, 2017


I expect you will find that the motor is open circuit. There is a thermal fuse incorporated into one of the field windings which can be replaced with a bit of messing about. A job for a retired appliance service person if you want to keep the price down. Did one today, took about an hour from start to finish.

it could be failing bushes for the motor
take it to an appliance repair shop for an inspection of the motor to check for bush/bearing problems

KitchenAid... | Answered on Dec 10, 2016


The coupling on the motor has become bonded to the coupling on the beaker. Maybe it was moving about excessively and the 2 plastic parts have fused together. You can expect to have to replace the motor coupling and at the least the blade assembly or possibly the whole beaker depending on model. Knowing what you are up for needing to replace now if you wish to get it off put a litre of water in it, put the lid on and turn it on high and wobble, wriggle it about until it is able to be lifted off.

Most likely the motor will be open circuit

KitchenAid... | Answered on Jul 07, 2016


Put the base back on, determine which way the motor normally turns from the top when running. Drill a hole in the edge flange of the driving coupling. Stick a punch or screwdriver in the hole and whack the punch with a decent hammer to shock the coupling in the direction it normally will be turning. Sometimes it's a few whacks, sometimes a whole lot more but eventually they always come undone. Replace the coupling.
