SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: Broken gear on BFP-703 base

The drive is replacable and available from Cuisinart, you will have to sign a waver to get the part. the drive is screwed onto the motor shaft with reverse threads. the plastic drive will have to be completely broken off of the unit to expose a brass"nut" which was internal to the drive. depending upon your model you may have to remove the lower half of the base unit to access the lower part of the motor shaft. there will be a slot in the end of the shaft for a large flat blade screwdriver. this is used to hold the shaft still while turning the drive "nut" with a vice grip pliar or similar. the new drive is just threaded onto the shaft and normal operation tightens it.

SOURCE: Kitchen Aid Blender - blade not rotating

You will definitely need to change the clutch blade i.e. the black rubber rotating bit. Chaging it on the base unit may be difficult, I would check with your local Kitcheaid repairer for spare parts and repair advice.

Also check the clutch blade on the jug itself.

SOURCE: Broken glass jug on kitchenaid blender model 5ksb2aer4

Look at the underside of the blade shaft. The metal wing nut on the end of the shaft secures the blade assembly to cream coloured plastic blade base. The wing nut also transmits the drive from the rubber coupling on your blender to the blade shaft. The wing nut has a LEFT HAND thread.
The left hand thread ensures the blade assembly does not unscrew during normal blender use.

Firstly disassemble the blender blade assembly. Place a folded tea towel over the blades and hold the blades firmly. If you do not use a tea towel you may cut yourself.

Grip the wing nut with your other hand and unscrew it CLOCKWISE.
Remove the wing nut. You can now remove the blade from the plastic base.

Put the blade assembly in the new jug and offer up the plastic base from under the jug so that the blade shaft protudes enough for you to install the wing nut.

Screw the wing nut ANTI-CLOCKWISE to secure the blades to the plastic base.

Do not over tighten the wing nut; you may have to replace your jug again at some point.

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.

I need to replace my rubber spinner with a new one. Where can I get the part and how do I take the old one off and put the new one on?


Hi, you have broken the coupler (sometimes called a coupling). It is relatively cheap and easy to replace. In the UK, K A Parts Limited sell them here and provide removal instructions here.

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.

Removing the plastic top service plate


if the motor is running and the blade is not turning here is a rubber coupling that has probably broken.the blender will need to be pulled apart and that part will need to be replaced . it is designed to absorb sudden shocks if something hard is hit and has broken rather than burning out the motor. there are two other torx screws holding the rest of the plastic parts after the switch assy is removed by uncliping it .
