KitchenAid blender pitcher leaks

I bought a new KitchenAid blender pitcher in December and it is leaking around the base just like the old one did. Is this a re-occuring problem for their blenders?

It could be the gasket, could definitely be that crack in the collar, and even possibly the blade assembly - here is the official website to get all of those parts:

There is probably a hairline fracture or tiny crack in the blade assembly itself - replace the blade assembly - it will automatically come with a gasket, so you will have an extra.

Leaking


Unfortunately Kitchenaid's design on those blenders is a one piece unit, over time the seals wear out and you have to replace the entire jar assembly, they usually run 40-50 dollars and can be found from several vendors.

Here is a link to the replacement jar on our site: KitchenAid Blade Jar Assembly W10555711

Leaks from the bottom of the glass jar. Bought a new gasket and it is worse than ever.


Are you sure you are installing the gasket correctly?

Leaks are usually the result of a misaligned or cross-threaded blender jar base or from the gasket being installed incorrectly. Make sure the gasket is installed between the blade assembly and the screw on base.

If this does not help, please reply or repost.

Pitcher stuck on base


You will likely need to replace the beaker anyway, the drive which is now melted to the motor coupling is only supplied as part of the beaker/blade assembly. You will also need a motor coupling.

Check for cracks in the bottom of the glass.If it continues leaking then the gasket is compressed and no matter if it visually looks good, cause it has lost their sealant skills. Replace the gasket

How do I fix or replace my kitchenaid blender blade KSB560BF (Polycarb Jar)? It's leaked thru the blade assembly.


Make sure the blade assembly is put together in the correct order. The blade needs to go through the gasket so that the order is pitcher glass, gasket, and metal blade base. Then the final plastic cap threaded onto the pitcher. If the gasket is not between the pitcher and the metal blade assembly, you will have leaks.
Also, check the gasket to be sure it's not cracked and that it doesn't have residue on it.
I hope this helps. If it does, please come back and rate my suggestion!

The blades stopped turning in the middle of blending a batch of hummus Its is a Kitchen Aid blender about 10 years old


Does the motor still work if you take the pitcher off of the base? If so, the rod that's in the blade assembly is probably corroded. The blades are connected to a metal rod that passes through a brass tube through to the piece that makes contact with the motor when you put the pitcher on the base. The grease wears down eventually and if you don't pulse and run the motor for a long time at once, the heat can corrode the bar and cause the blade to stop spinning. You can either disassemble the blade unit, or buy a new blade unit online. google blender parts and you can get one for $10

How to know a NEW from the old polycarbonate jug\pitcher that cracks near blades.


The "code" you are seeking is found in the serial number, which has a specific way of noting when the unit is manufactured.

Buy with confidence and hang on to your dated sales receipt. If the blender leaks, take advantage of Kitchenaid's 1 Year warranty by calling into Kitchenaid Customer Service.

Their toll-free telephone number is 1-800-541-6390.
