Question about Blenders
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!

From the BAMIX.com website
Mayonnaise 1 egg (or 1 egg yolk) 1 teaspoon of lemon juice 1 teaspoon of herb vinegar 1 pinch salt 1 pinch pepper 1 ½ - 2 cups of oil 1 teaspoon of french mustard Put all the ingredients except the oil in a jug (not too large) and blend well with the WHISK. Then add the oil in a thin, steady stream (not drop by drop), processing all the time, until the mayonnaise has reached the required consistency. To achieve perfect results, all ingredients should be at the same temperature.

I think this will help a bit (p.2 only), although it seems a little crude to be a full service manual - this is a service manual for an Oster "Osterizer" Blender - one of the classics:
Here is one for a Philips blender, but once again, not as detailed as I've ever seen:
These are the free one I could find. Generally, an authorized servicer is not allowed to distribute a full service manual, so you normally have to pay someone to get a complete service manual.

SOURCE: I need a coupling for
The piece that you need is referred to as the coupler. The coupler is a breakway part that is designed to shear and/or wear down in the event that the blender is overloaded. This is to avoid damage to the motor.
The coupler may be purchased individually and is an easy repair that can be done at home. You may purchase the part and access step-by-step replacement instructions at the following link:
