Kitchen Aid Blender - blade not rotating

The blade has stopped rotating but the machine noise sounds fine. It is approx 6 years old. On the base unit, the black rubber grips have worn/broken off the black rotating unit which may be the problem in not gripping? Can this black rubber rotating bit be replaced and is this a job I could do, help please?!

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.

Why are Blender blades moving very slowly?


Since it's a Kitchen Aid unit I'd examine the possibility of repair.

I have a kitchen aid blender with a polycarbonate jar. The jar leaks at the blade. I noticed it has a plastic nut on the bottom with left hand threads. However the nut will not fit over the drive gear...


Older KitchenAid blenders had a jar that was made so the blade assembly could be removed for cleaning. On the newer models the blender jar and the blade assembly are all one unit so you have to purchase a new jar to get the blade assembly. All of this is dependent on which model of blender you have.

We would be happy to help you. Please a give us a call at 1-800-339-9297 we would be happy to help! One of our repair technicians can talk you through the repair over the phone free of charge. On the bottom of your blender is the model and serial numbers; have these handy when you call so we can help you order the correct part.

We have several blender jars on our Web site http://www.mendingshed.com/kitaidblen.html for KitchenAid blenders. If we don't have the blender jar that fits your model in-stock we can order it and ship it to you. Please contact us with any further questions. You can also email your model number or questions to [email protected]


Sincerely,

Mendingshed.com Staff

How do i turn the bottom piece off the blender?


If it's like many other units, you can unscrew the bottom, BUT its a left-hand thread! (this is so as the blades spin colckwise, they don't unscrew the clear plastic body from the base if they trap stuff against the side).

The nut that holds the blade is loose and liquid gets through it. When I tried to just tighten the nut is spins but does not tighten. Is there a trick


It sounds like the blade has overheated at some point. When this happens the plastic melts and the seal is broken. The only repair is to replace the blade unit:

The blades stopped turning in the middle of blending a batch of hummus Its is a Kitchen Aid blender about 10 years old


Does the motor still work if you take the pitcher off of the base? If so, the rod that's in the blade assembly is probably corroded. The blades are connected to a metal rod that passes through a brass tube through to the piece that makes contact with the motor when you put the pitcher on the base. The grease wears down eventually and if you don't pulse and run the motor for a long time at once, the heat can corrode the bar and cause the blade to stop spinning. You can either disassemble the blade unit, or buy a new blade unit online. google blender parts and you can get one for $10

Kitchenaid Blender Classic


Same thing happened to me. Opened it up and along the red wire to the motor is a bass fuse. Went to the hardware store and then I replaced it. Works fine.

GE Blender Jar loose rotator


Remove the bottom clean the unit fully. Add the bottom blad assebly and this will fix your problem. The "sooty" is plastic shavings. Take note that the fitting were the "jar" connects to the motor that this is not wearing away. The unit i have broke and i am unable to find a replacement blade assembly.

Blender blade not turning, rotating piece on base not connected


this is getting more and more common there is a part between the motor and the drive gear that snaps for no reason . its job is to snap if the blades jam as a "fuse" to save your house from a overheating ,jammed motor . the problem is there are no parts to buy to fix this . if its new take it back to where you bought it . otherwise shipping it 2 ways for repair to the factory is sometimes as much or more as a new blender ........ i would recomend you do one of two things : go to a goodwill or other type shop and get a nice vintage blender , it will last forever ! or move up to a vita mix . its costly but it will realy last you ... this new made in china junk is just bad news even when it has the kitchen aid name on it . its still the same junk ..... good luck........ Please if this answer helped , please rate this 3 or 4 stars . and keep me in the paid answer department . A 1 or 2 may knock me down into the unpaid ranks. Thanks Cactus Bob .
