The blender's fan is lose and the screws fall off. Need to open the blender and put them back. Please suggest how to open the blender. I unscrewed the 4 screws at the bottom but seems that it's not enough to open the case.

There are two phillip head screws holding the blender end together where it came apart. They are hidden under plugs on either side of the imprinted information. Simply drill a hole in each plug and remove them by putting something in the hole (small screwdriver) and pulling them out. Loosen the screws, enough to pull the body apart far enough to insert the blender end back in. Tighten the screws back up and your good to go. I left the plugs out, they don,t serve any purpose.
Hold the fan still and then turn the top and it will start to loosen the bolt you can see on the fan. Side Note: If you need to remove the bottom completely then you also have to remove the screws hidden under the rubber feet.
the blade is a screw fit on the shaft of the blender,, if you only use one blade just rince the blade under the tap and dry it off before putting it away, the only way to un-screw the blade if its stuck is give it a sudden jolt on the side of the blade with a soft hammer in the same way as it turns,,this may shake it lose,,,not to hard though,,,
The green screw is a grounding screw and the blender will work fine with out it, but it should be grounded with the power cord ground wire secured to the ground screw. Check the other wiring, the ground screw is not why it doesn't work now. (unless there is another screw involved. The power comes in and goes to the speed control switch)
Like you, I am all for repairing and keeping the world free of blenders that only need one part replaced. The rubber coupling was easily ordered online, the challenge I later found was to remove it without losing my sanity. After messing up the side grill of the blender pretty good, I realized there is an opening on the motor casing that allows access to a "gear" that is firmly attached to the axle where our little friend will hopefully screw on and restore the contraption to a working state. In order for you to see (which I must warn you, it's not much of a view) through the grill you will need a flashlight or book light. Towards the top of the aforementioned gear (not the rubber part) there is a groove in which a flat screwdriver can easily fit immobilizing the axle and allowing you to easily unscrew it. Oh, but wait, I forgot this is the faulty part and it will spin without the slightest torque on the axle thus never loosening or getting it unscrewed. My solution to this problem was to surgically remove as much rubber as possible to allow me to attach my vise grip to the nut and finally put this thing out of its misery. Using the same procedure of inserting the screwdriver to immobilize the axle I was able to screw the new part and voila the blender is fixed!!!!
My coupler was split in two, and I couldn't screw it off. I had to do the following:
1. Take the blender apart (mine had 2 screws on the bottom).
2. Remove the motor housing from the blender (mine was loose from removing the two screws earlier).
3. Remove the fan by removing the fan nut.
4. Take apart the motor housing. Mine had two machine screws with 1/4" hex heads holding a bracket that tied the two ends together. Once those two screws are removed, you can take the motor out of the housing. Be careful on the fan end of the motor, because it's got two spring loaded brushes that will come together once the motor is pulled through.
6. Once you have the motor out of the housing, you'll have something to grab onto so you'll be able to unscrew the broken coupler. I used a pair of channel locks and gently grasped the motor body, and then just used a regular pair of pliers to grab the broken coupler. It's regular thread (lefty lucy righty tighty), so twist accordingly.
Once you have the coupler off, just put everything back together. The hardest part is holding apart the spring loaded brushes while you push the fan end of the motor shaft back through the motor housing.
Took me about 20 minutes to do everything.
Apply vinegar to a rag and a couple of q-tips - use the rag for any exposed areas, and use the q-tips to let vinegar drop into the hard-to-reach areas. You tried everything else I would have suggested.
You can probably use a Vise-grip pliers to clamp down on the brass insert and unscrew it. Not only is it on very hard, but it is also threaded reverse of a normal screw. This is so it does not come undone in normal operation.
You have to turn it counter-clockwise to unscrew it (a regular screw turns clockwise).
I had to clamp the motor shaft real tight with a bench vise to be able to remove the clutch. Hope this helps.
