At first I followed the directions shown on the video and was not successful ,due to not following them correctly .Once the part came ,I tried again after trying some of the other suggestions posted .Going back to video it took me about 2 minutes after spending another 2 minutes with the other methods .I am not discounting the other methods ,but will recommend the video ,a good stout straight edge screwdriver and patience.Also be sure to protect the painted surface of the blender base.All in all am pleased I did not have to go out and buy a new blender for $100 plus .

Watched the video. Did what he said. Done! By the way, the Model Number ended in 3, but all that was available was the schematic for the one ending in 4. No matter, it was the same thing. Blender runs just fine now, and for less than $6, I didn't have to buy another blender. Very clear site to use.

Instructions that came with drive coupling are completely wrong. They say too pry the coupling off with a flat tip screwdriver which would ruin the motor shaft and threads.You just insert a small thin tool into the bottom air vents of the base to keep motor from turning and unscrew the coupling clockwise to remove and then screw new coupling counterclockwise hand tight only. Then follow the instructions to change out the pitcher seal by hand only.

We were going to throw the blender away but after checking prices on a new kitchen aid brand at $ 150.00. We found this part for $ 5.00. So we decided to give it a shot. Glad we did. Easy to fix! Thank you. Kay

Had to replace coupler...it was not simple

  • Customer: Armen from Vista, CA
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Thanx to everyone who posted directions or I would never have figured it out. As it was, even those instructions weren't perfect for me. My coupler had shredded, and following the PartSelect directions, all I managed to do was pry off the rubber leaving the metal disk still attached to the blender. The couple was jammed on somehow, and using pliers to hold the shaft steady didn't work. On my fourth attempt at jamming a rod through the fan blades, the coupler finally gave way unscrewing clockwise. I managed to bend the rod, that's how tight the thing was.

Follow instuctions on the video, except if the blender is as old as mine it would be wise to cover the the old coupling with a towel or rag because it is brittle and pieces will fly off and you will have a mess to clean up or possibly some in your eye.

Relacement of black under-the-pitcher blender/gear blade turner

Watched the video first using screwdriver. Saying to pry upwards...nothing moved because I thought I would strip the screw on top of motor shat. The "part" is mounted on aluminum...which is softer than hard screw metal shaft. You really need to apply a lot of leverage under that existing black part ... prying it ... 1/4" rotating and eventually it will pry off. Simply remove metal filings and screw the new part on counter-clockwise. Started out difficult...but you won't hurt the hard metal screw prying the softer aluminum piece off!

Drive Coupling shattered

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Tried prying the old coupling off per instructions included, but there was too much resistance and felt like damage would occur to blender base if more pressure applied. Tried locking the drive as described in the comments by other users using a screwdriver through the bottom vents and that worked fine. New coupling screwed on with no problem. Blender is now working as good as new. Appreciate the service. It's why I buy KitchenAid.
