Moulinex Food... | Answered on Dec 15, 2020

I am no expert on food blenders but look between the teeth of the drive gear. Some models have a tiny grub screw hidden between the teeth as a locking pin into the spindle.
unscrew it until it just sticks out. Don't take it all the way out as your guaranteed to drop it and lose it. (Yes, I've done that!). Other than that it could be a circlip inside the top or a tiny nut/screw under a small covering cap. Some are even a 'push on' fit. I DON'T recommend just yanking on it. You'll break it completely that way.
Some blenders, especially the cheaper ones, are deliberately designed not to be repaired so you have to buy a new one instead.
I hope this helps

I doubt they want you to repair it if it is the spindle. They don't sell for any of the models I have had other than Cuisinart, anyway and can't see yours online.

Have you checked that your safety switches are moving? (You hear the click when bowl and lid are in place, but you can test with a small head screwdriver at the slots where they engage points)

Have you tried to un-guck the spindle? I can't see anywhere what it looks like, but getting some dental floss under it may help. Work it from several angles. Food is like glue if anything got in there. Does it have a removable spindle (mine has 2 so don't say no such thing. Some are not removable) Is the spindle fully intact? No cracks? They make new products to fail after 10 years so plastic bits breaking off are common.

Having said all that I have a new Cuisinart that is 2 years old that has a crack in the side, so I have to bleach it out every time as a new bold i worth more than your food processor and a thirty year old one I use to make eggshell fertilizer for tomatoes... They literally do not make them like they used to... GOOD LUCK!
