Question about KitchenAid Blenders
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.

Alternating blinking lights on a Kitchenaid blender indicate a bad circuit board which is unable to run the motor properly. Unplug the blender, take the jar off, and turn the spindle by hand. Then plug it back in. If it does not work properly, try a different outlet (perhaps not in the kitchen). If nothing works, the blender needs to be repaired.

I had the exact same problem with my Cuisinart bfp-703ch blender. When I plug it in, the lights come on but the motor wouldn't run. After reading some posts I almost decided to throw it away. But my brain started to itch and I gave it a shot anyway. I eventually found the problem to be with the Thermal fuse. If you overload/overheat the blender, this fuse is going to blow off.
To replace it, I opened the bottom panel and followed the wires that come from the circuit. Once of those wires eventually will lead to the thermal fuse. It may help you if you unscrew the circuit board. Then I detached the fuse with pliers, got a replacement thermal fuse from Radioshack and connected it back on. I also had to solder it to make sure the connection is more robust. And Voila!!! my motor started working again.

I don't have one, but inspect the shaft, it looks like there is a key on the shaft, then inspect the inside of the blade where it goes on top of the shaft, see if it looks like the shaft has spun out the blade and this is why it's not spinning.
Remove the blade and the container, then turn on and see if the shaft is spinning, it should be most are a direct drive.
So now if the shaft is spinning, that most likely means that the blade hole is broke where it sets on top of the shaft.
Look closely at the inside of the blade, you should see some type of damage like the groves are worn, I hate to see you buy one and it was the shaft that wore, but usually the blade will go first.
