All the adapter did was enable you to put 240VAC straight into your 110/120VAC coffee maker. You needed a step down transformer to drop the voltage from 240 to 120 VAC. This is not what you wanted to hear but you have damaged your coffee maker substantially by using the wrong voltage. Also the US version is designed for 60 HZ power vs AU 50 Hz power unless stated otherwise on the input power data plate.
Damage that has probably taken place:
1. Motor PN 8211837
2. Relay and Switch assembly PN: 8212011. .
3. Capacitor PN 8211608
Cost to repair... will be close to total replacement value due to shipping costs & customs of replacement parts
I just did this. I used a screwdriver and some needle-nose pliers to wedge and separate the shaft from the base. Once you've separated it by about 1/2 inch, it will come off easily. I simply used a mallet to install the new one.
put the mixing bowl up as much as possible. spray some wd40 into the groove between the attachement and the motor shaft. Wait for several minutes, then with a hammer and a piece of wood, give the bowl a good wack. With a few goes, it will gradually come off. I will be putting some butter inside the attachement from now on to keep it lubricated
The motor shaft that spins the teeth that are on the base of the blender may be frozen up for some reason. If you purchased the duet within the last 3 years and have a receipt, call Cuisinart to get it repaired in warranty - even if you don't have a receipt, your serial number may still save you. If you purchased it more than 3 years ago, let me know.
I don't know about the little lip you're referring to, but the central spindle that comes up from the base of our KitchenAid 12 cups food processor KFP750WH0 splintered and broke while we were using it. We ordered a replacement motor sleeve shaft part number KA8211849 from the Gourmet Depot for $4.95 plus $3.50 s/h. Removing the broken plastic sleeve shaft was the difficulty; it isn't glued or screwed on but somehow it didn't want to be pulled, pried, or cut off. With the help of our neighbor fix-it man and all four of us working at it with screwdrivers, we got the old broken part up and off. Pushing the new one onto the metal motor shaft was easy, and it was fixed!
