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.

well theres a couple of things you can do one is to soak the spring and ring in warm water with a dish cloth then take a butter knife and try to pry it up very carefully this usually works the other is to steam it free but that is very time consuming.

You will definitely need to change the clutch blade i.e. the black rubber rotating bit. Chaging it on the base unit may be difficult, I would check with your local Kitcheaid repairer for spare parts and repair advice.

Also check the clutch blade on the jug itself.

The shaft has probably become tight in the bearings and the assembly will need to be dismantled for cleaning and possibly lubrication - I am unfamiliar with the Ninja but the average blender is a fairly basic mechanism and not many fasteners have to be removed before the parts needing attention either fall off or can be removed. It is a fairly intuitive process for the handy person.

You could perhaps start with the nut on the blade - there seems enough exposed thread to judge whether it is left or right hand thread and it shouldn't be particularly tight. Lots of cloth should be used when holding the blade...

The thermal fuse must be in intimate contact with the motor so when the motor temperature climbs dangerously high the fuse temperature doesn't lag far behind.

I have seen the thermal fuse buried in the windings of a transformer so it isn't beyond the realms of possibility it could be inside the motor. The thermal fuse body is metal and live and so must be insulated and so is generally found in the supply wire inside some heat resistant sleeving strapped firmly to the motor...

try rotating the container part 1/4 of a turn to line up slots and press down . then if it does not blend turn another 1/4 turn to line up slots and press down pushing container into base motor unit .
container and screw on blade lid is put in upside down and the plastic posts have to match the base unit to turn on the blender when you press down on container into base unit.

I own and use a ninja blender !.
