I didn't realize there was a spoon in the blender and it made a total racket as the blades and housing were falling apart. The blender jar, blades and housing are all one piece so my less than 2 month old blender was completely trashed. Rather than spend $100 on a new blender, I spent $24 on a new jar... popped it on the blender in place of the old one and it's better than new! And I'm much more careful using it!

Put masking tape around the coupling and put the coupling in a vise upside down. took the bottom apart and unscrewed the main shaft screw. ITS LEFT HAND THREAD!!! Screw on new coupling and put the bottom back on.The masking tape is just to protect the finish.

to replace the coupling you take the bottom off the blender and loosen the screws that hold the bracket and fan -then comes the hard part-the shaft screw is bolted through every bit of the guts then into the coupling. It is a lefthand thread. I ended up having to fabricate a piece of metal that slipped into the top of the coupling (in the teeth.) Then I secured the metal piece-it was just a twi inch piece of steel- in the vise, I held the blender and I got a big guy to attack the shaft bolt with a bunch of pressure and a straight screwdriver. It finally popped and I was able to unscrew the old coupling and replace it with the new. Reminds of when guys put on lug nuts and I have to try and get them off. But I saved at least $100.

There wasn't any repair,just placed the new jar unto the drive motor( the jar comes with the gear ) and it was good as new. The comments that I found on some other repairs and parts on the model helped me decide the problem and what part to order. Great experience !

recessed coupling removal

  • Customer: Duane from Avon NY
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I tried the method of removing the base, putting the coupling in a vise and turning the shaft(reverse thread). I managed to spread the slot with the screw driver to the point it was no longer an option. I looked on You Tube for ideas and found one. With the base completely assembled, take a flat edged screw driver placed against the coupling (clockwise) strike the end of the screwdriver until the coupling loosens, turn coupling off by hand. I had to beat it, but it worked and now so does the blender.

stripped blender coupling

The screw embedded in the polymer coupling had broken free so that it was not rotating on the threads; I had to destroy the old one by breaking it to small pieces, starting with the rim to get it out of the housing. Once off, the re-assembly was simple.

Unfortunately you can not purchase just the blade assembly so I had to order a new jar minus the lid assembly. Just put the jar on the base and I was done. The blades would unbolt from the jar but they are not sold seperately.
