SOURCE: Kitchen Aid Blender Rubber Coupling replacement

Someone else suggested a link that explains exactly how to unthread the old coupling... and it works. It took me about 90 seconds to fix my blender. But in case that link is dead, here's a summary:

(1) Note that the coupling (the round part with teeth) is threaded to the blender motor in reverse to a standard threading. So it screws off just like a bottle top, but in a clockwise direction.

(2) place the blender base on a tabletop, facing you. You should probably unplug it.

(3) take a punch or a flathead screwdriver, and place it against one of the coupling teeth that is furtherest away from you.

(4) strike the back of the screwdriver with a small hammer or maillot. The result will spin coupling clockwise. It may take several tries, but the coupling will eventually spin clockwise faster than the motor, and it will begin to unthread.

(5) unscrew the old coupling, and screw the new coupling into place (counterclockwise). Note that the new coupling will tighten itself every time you use your blender, so no need to worry about tightening it too much.

(6) Make a smoothie to celebrate your success!

My blender broke. where can I have it fixed? I stay in Cape Town

Look up appliance repair shops for an expensive unit, otherwise it is cheaper to just go buy another blender.

How to separate coupler

Assemble it with motor secure and base & feet on. Drill 3 or 4mm hole in edge of coupling Put screwdriver into hole on a large angle and whack the handle to undo the coupling. You are whacking it to turn in the same direction it turns when the motor is running.

Looking for somebody to repair my braun blender in Cape Town

Part 3: Opening up the Braun handheld blender/mixer turbo 600, typ 4191.

The front end and the motor are a cast-joint part. With one more circumferential kerf, the grip-part came free, also showing that there is no other way to open the machine irreversibly.

It also showed that the contacts between the motor and the print are/were relatively loose, which amazed me for a motor of 600 Watt. And in my case: they were burnt. That explained the machine not working. It is surprising that the thermal safety didn't kick in when my wife used the machine

On the left, click KITCHENAID. On the next page, click KITCHENAID BLENDER PARTS. On the next page, you will see a listing for a drive coupling. You want to choose on the left, which is retailing for $5.95.

You may order the part if you need it. If not, click onto the parts order page and scroll down. There will be a two-step instructional guide on how to properly replace the coupler.

Broke the coupling to our blender #KSB50B3

If you have a Kitchenaid Blender (model KSB50B3 or similar) and the rubber teeth on the coupling (that spikey rubber thing on top of the base) broke off (see picture), here is how you can fix it yourself! The Task: The coupling is screwed onto a vertical shaft like a button mushroom. The shaft is round with two flat sides. You need to find an U-shaped thing [such as a wrench] to secure the shaft and loosen the coupling by turning it CLOCKWISE. What you need: 1. New coupling: Part number KA-9704230. Shouldn't be more than $6. I got mine at Their shipping fee is very decent and the service is also good. 2. An U-shaped object: Some had success with household forks. That didn't work for me. Most successes came from the use of ignition wrenches. There's only about 1/4 of an inch between the coupling and the base, and these very thin wrenches can get in there. You will need size 5/16 or 9/32. I got mine at Sears. They come in a set and are not cheap!! The steps: 1. Rip the rubber cover off the coupling. There's a metal disc inside. 2. Secure the shaft with the wrench. 3. Grab the metal disc with a plier and quickly **** it CLOCKWISE. This is to overcome the inertia. 4. If not loosened repeat steps 2~3. 5. Screw new coupling on COUNTER-CLOCKWISE. Now you are ready to make that smoothe or margarita or what have you again! Disclaimer: Kids, don't do this at home. I am not responsible for any explicit or implicit damages caused by you repairing your blender. Read manufacture's warranty policy before proceeding. Call their service center if you don't feel comfortable performing the aforementioned repair.
