Actually the drive gear was vulcanized onto the shaft during the production. If you can get glue to hold it on you're all set but I think you'll end up replacing the whole blender soon. Thank you, Dana

How to replace waring blender 028538 drive coupling


Check and see if your blender was made in China.
If so, the chances are really slim for a finding parts for a fix.
If it was made in the USA, try "e-bay" for parts.
If you need a parts list, you will need to find one first.
Also, type Waring Blender into your search engine on your computer, to see if a dealer or repair place has a web-site.
God bless your efforts.

Kitchenaid ksb540ero coupling


Drill a hole in the rim flange at the top. Engage a screwdriver in the new hole and whack it with a heavy hammer. You are trying to spin the coupling in the same direction it turns when the motor runs. This solution ALWAYS works if you do it right.

Changing the coupler


Lever it off with a screwdriver, it is aluminium and the threads on the ring will break away. Pick them out of the thread on the motor shaft and screw on a new coupling, it will be left hand thread.

Blender teeth shattered


Coupling teeth??? Replace coupling, if the teeth on the blade part of the coupling are also damaged then you will need to replace the blade assy as well as that coupling only comes with the blades.

Part "i" , the plastic(nylon) tooth part on my Braun PowerMax Blender, type 4184, broke and I need to find a replacement part. The Braun Service website was useless. Can you help? ...


www.smallappliance.com. you can order a new blender blade which has the white nylon teeth or you can order the coupling which is the black teeth that the jar sits on. NOTE: the black one is easy to replace, but getting the screws out of the base is the hard part.

Replacing rubber drive coupling


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.
Good luck.

Rubber coupling


Yes.

The coupler - the black cylindrical piece that juts up from the motor base, and it has 6 teeth protruding inward toward the center of it - is responsible for transferring motion from the motor into the blade assembly. You physically set your jar on top of it.

If you're needing a replacement coupler for your blender, you may order it and find repair instructions at the following link:

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 www.goodmans.net. 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.

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!
