Question about KitchenAid KSB3 Classic Work Top Blender
After not using my blender for quite awhile, I pulled it out the other day and found that it wasn't working properly. When correctly assembled, the blade is not turning. When I disassemble and check the power without the blade/pitcher on it, the motor works just fine and the piece at the bottom spins. However, when I reassemble the unit, I can hear the motor running and see the blade slightly START to turn, but that's all. When I checked the piece on the bottom side of the blade attachment, it seemed a little hard to turn, so I used some vegetable oil to lubricate it. That did make the blade turn easier, but it didn't cause it to turn when the unit is assembled. Any suggestions? I feel like I'm soooooo close...
I am looking at the same problem, the aluminum bottom part (on blade assembly) that contacts the black rubber on the motor part is no longer "attached" to shaft that drives the blade on top side. So like said the top and bottom "turn freely" but independent of each other.... not good, they should be one piece. Ebay does not have a replacement for this original part in my case and would have to buy a complete jar assembly. I will attempt to fix the original one by cutting a slot through aluminum and center shaft and dropping in a pin to make them turn together, with a spot of weld to hold pin to shaft... not sure how long this will last.... unless somene has a better idea to fix it?

The top rubber piece could be worn enough that it is not engaging the pitcher. look at it carefully and see if the "teeth" of the rubber disc on top of the base has not cracked and worn away. a picture of the new one can be seen on the parts websites to compare I spent $10.00 for my replacement but i found them at other sites for $6.00. you will need a very skinny 7mm open ended wrench to get the old one off and it is left handed threads that means clockwise will loosen not tighten the part.i ground down my wrench but an ignition wrench from an auto store will usually be thin enough to reach the flats on the shaft under the rubber disc
