Broken gear on BFP-703 base

The black plastic gear that trasmits power from the base to the blender (or food processor) cracked in half. Can this part be located? Can it be user replaced?

    it was the reverse threads that threw me and also how tight the original brass ring was on the motor shaft.

    No screw hole in the bottom of my wife's blender so had to remove the bottom case and remove the motor to remove the brass ring that holds the black Clutch Driver. You might need a second hand to hold the motor if you must pull the case apart to get to the the sloted motor drive shaft to remove that brass ring in the clutch

    I hadthe same problem. I bought the black plastic clutch on e-bay. Had to take the cover to get access to the screwdriver slot to stop the shaft from spinning when I replaced it. Now, however, I can't recall exactly how these cardboard inserts go back inside the housing. I assume they re there just to protect against random splashing of water or food.

The drive is replacable and available from Cuisinart, you will have to sign a waver to get the part. the drive is screwed onto the motor shaft with reverse threads. the plastic drive will have to be completely broken off of the unit to expose a brass"nut" which was internal to the drive. depending upon your model you may have to remove the lower half of the base unit to access the lower part of the motor shaft. there will be a slot in the end of the shaft for a large flat blade screwdriver. this is used to hold the shaft still while turning the drive "nut" with a vice grip pliar or similar. the new drive is just threaded onto the shaft and normal operation tightens it.

The reverse threads were the problem for me - no hole in bottom of blender cuisinart BFP-7 so you actually have to take off the bottom plastic casing and then you will have access to the slot in the motor shaft to hold the shaft while breaking the original Clutch Drive brass ring loose - you might need an extra hand to break the original clutch loose ---- screw on the new clutch and then put on the blender jar and that will tighten up the clutch driver - I would not run this without the blender jar on top just to be safe --- wish cuisianrt was helpful but they refused even after signing a disclaimer for liabillity just to buy the part

I have a Cuisinart BFP-703. It started smoking while chopping ice. It stopped working. Took bottom off, unscrewed board, tried following wiring, one white and one black from board.

Sometimes they can be soldered to a circuit board. If it is inline, it could look like a small metal tube with what looks like white porcelain on one end where the wire comes out. If this is present, it is a circuit breaker similar to a fuse but instead of blowing with an electrical overload, it is sensitive to heat like from an over heating motor. This may be glued to a solid part of the motor like the steel plate lamination and must be replaced. These don't reset. These can also be completely inside a piece of plastic tubing as their leads are not insulated. Good luck.

My Cuisinart blender start leaking after a few months of use.

Here is a list of things to check for:
1. Make sure the blender base (black plastic) is tight to the jar.
2. Make sure you have installed the rubber washer between the blender blade assembly and the jar.
3. Make sure your rubber washer is free from any crud that may have accumulated and dried on. You may have to soak the washer and gently scrub with a scrubber sponge. If it's really cruddy you may have to repeat as necessary.
4. Make sure you have not caught any water (or other liquid) when filling it between the base and the jar. When you pour out the contents it will appear as if it is leaking.

The rotor on the base for the food processor will not engage. It spins freely, and the black wheel on the bottom rotates, but does not engage the blade spindle. Why?

Usuallt, it is simple - you have the position the gear box of the food processor side until there is no gap between the gear box and the teeth on the base - this usually takes me a few tries to get it right.

If you are confident that there is no gap, call Cuisinart and see about getting a new gear box - 1-800-726-0190
