Top 20 KitchenAid 5-speed Blender With Glass Blender Jar Ksb565er Questions & Answers

It will either be the rubber gasket (it goes between the glass jar and the blade assy) or it could be a worn bearing/bush around the chopping blade shaft. Replace either the gasket or the blade assy.

The rubber ring goes between the jar and the blade assy housing. It never goes under the blade assy, always to the jar.

I bet you're cross about that. It's a shame you have not bothered to tell us what is cross threaded.

Are you sure you are installing the gasket correctly?

Leaks are usually the result of a misaligned or cross-threaded blender jar base or from the gasket being installed incorrectly. Make sure the gasket is installed between the blade assembly and the screw on base.

If this does not help, please reply or repost.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

dont normally have a fuse
self insulated plugs for safety

fault is either the plug, motor or switch
with a continuity test light or meter
you need to check there is a constant circuit at the two plug prongs

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.

Most likely the motor will be open circuit

If you have to ask how to do it then there is a good chance that you will not have the equipment to do the check and if you do have a meter you will be electrically unsafe doing it. For starters you need a multi meter, disconnect the motor from the speed control pcb and check it for a circuit. It is more likely that the motor or pcb will be faulty, cable faults on blenders are very rare but now you have your meter you can disconnect the cable from the pcb and check each wire for a circuit.

The thread that the driving clutch screws onto measures 6.2mm with my calipers measuring the thread. Confirming it is left hand thread.

cruise around the weekend markets, flea markets , garage sales, pawn shops for this but I don't like your chances
about the same as getting a new one from the manufacturer unless you haven't already tried that option

Remove the bottom cover 1nd unplug the motor from the PCB, check the motor for a circuit with your multi meter. If the circuit is open then remove the motor and locate the thermal fuse attached to one of the field windings under the metal tie and tape for insulation. Test the fuse for a circuit, if it is open then you have 3 options, replace the whole motor, replace the thermal fuse only (it will need to be aftermarket as KA only supply motors complete) or just bypass the faulty fuse.

No reset button, unplug it, remove the base and check the motor for continuity. If motor is open circuit check the individual field windings, there is a fuse on one if them under the insulation under the one with the metal clip around it. You can replace the fuse or bypass it. It is tricky and not for someone with no electrical clues.

The motor will probably be open circuit, take it back under guarantee and let them sort it out. If you mess around you will void your guarantee.
