I watched the video on the website and I realized I could repair a $100.00 blender myself, for under $20.00! So, so easy and the part came in two days. Great company, Thanks!

Drive Coupling Fractured

  • Customer: James from St. Clair Shores MI
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 2 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
Per directions, I pried the drive off the screw. I was surprised that the drive came off the screw by just a prying action, but that's how it's done. The metal base to the drive is softer than the screw so there was no stripping of the screw threads. Then I just threaded the new drive onto the screw and done.

The longest time spent was in getting the part out of the package and reading the directions. All told it took less than 5 minutes.

The rubber part of the drive appears to be very brittle as it chipped off the drive gears. But it was easy to repair and they do last about 5 years.

The blender would not spin/coupling was worn out

I was going to throw this expensive blender in the trash but decided to buy the part instead. I'm sure happy that I found this part dealer and was able to fix the blender since it was quite an expensive item. I watched the video on how to replace the coupler and I was able to replace the coupler within minutes and the only tool needed was a screwdriver. I just gently and patiently worked the old one out and basically screwed on the new one. It was very easy and a woman can easily master this repair! I did.

part does not fit this model like it claimed it did. Blade assembly was too small in diameter. This part will cost more to send back for refund. Part did not work. Blender still broken.

Blender Coupling Disintegrated

  • Customer: Glenda from Houston TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 2 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
As per instructions provided plus other internet advice, we used a large (10 in) flat blade screw driver to pry and remove the existing damaged coupling. There was a small amount of aluminum thread residue left from the old coupling on the motor shaft. We removed this debris, 'lefty tighty'd' the new one and we were blending again! Really simple. We thought about making a 7MM wrench, then we went to our bicycle repair tools, but we the smallest Shimano we had was 10MM. All is well, we have used the blender 3 times with ice and thick stuff with no problems.

Rubber drive coupling shattered when chopping ice

  • Customer: Anthony from Melbourne FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Did not have an open end wrench thin enough to engage the coupling shaft, so I inserted a flat screwdriver through the vent holes at the bottom of the blender to keep the motor from turning and simply unscrewed the coupling (reverse thread) from the shaft. FYI, the instructions that came with the new coupling were useless. Makes no sense to "pry" the old coupling off with a screwdriver, in effect destroying it, when all you need to do is what I describe above. By the way - it would be really great if you provided a thin cheap open end wrench with the new coupling. Probably only add a few pennies to the cost.

P/N 401661 coupling broken

  • Customer: Larry from Scottsdale AZ
  • Difficulty: Very Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers
  • 2 of 3 people found this instruction helpful
a special wrench should have been provided, due to the small space available under the coupling. I had to cut the existing damaged part off in order to grasp the shaft, to remove the old part.

you should provede a wrench and instructions with future sales. the average person would have returned the part for credit, and bought a new blender. i repaired it. L. Clauss, ME.

My hand slipped while I was using my blender, so I tore the teeth off the coupling and needed to replace it.

The first thing I did--and the first thing you should do--is to read the other repair stories. There are some that recommend prying the coupling off, and some that recommend bicycle wrenches, and some that advocate the use of pliers. Use the strategy that fits the tools you have at hand; the person who actually ground down a wrench is way more dedicated and hard-core handy than I had time to be. Also, prying round things with a flathead? Surefire way to have the screwdriver slip off the drive shaft and go right through your hand. Ouch.

I didn't have a thin enough tool to grip the drive shaft just below the coupling, but I did have a flathead screwdriver narrow enough in diameter to put it through the vent and the fan blades at the bottom of the base--and long enough to fit all the way up through the blades to the motor, to prevent it from turning (6"). I had to insert and re-insert the screwdriver through the bottom a couple of times, until I got an angle that actually prevented the motor from turning (pretty close to straight in, straight up).

Motor secure, I turned the broken coupling CLOCKWISE to unscrew it (thanks for the heads up, fellow repairpeople!). The first turn need an assist from a big pair of pliers, but after that I unscrewed the old and screwed on the new coupling by hand. Easy!

Teeth on rubber coupling were broken off.

Just like the directions said, I pryed up on the coupling at a few points around it's circumference and it became loose enough to unscrew. I didn't believe it was going to work at first but, amazingly, it did. All that was left to do was screw on the new part. No problem!

repair broken teeth on blender.

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

I first tried to do the repair just like the directions ,trying to force off the wheel. Then I tried doing it the way the readers here did with a tthin pliers and was not sucessfull. I then took it to a hardware store and ask about a certain pliers,they did not have it. The older man at the register took two screwdrivers from the jar next to him took my blender and pried on either side and popped off the wheel just like the original directions said. It was then easy to put the new one on.

The drive coupling wore out

I unscrewed the old coupling and screwed on the new coupling from Partselect.
This was a personal repair job.
However, I am a local Handyman in Northern NJ that does a ton of minor repairs. For all of my appliance part needs I will buy from Partselect.com. They under promised and over delivered! Just incase you dont know what I mean by that statement,,, I ordered the blender part, they told me I would have it in 6-10 days (which was acceptable to me) and I had it in two days... AWESOME job FOLKS!!!!!!!
