replace the drive coupling

  • Customer: Thomas from Long Beach, CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers
  • 1 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
I couldn't unscrew the old coupling (left hand thread) so I carefully sawed a piece off being careful (the somewhat difficult part of the job) not to damage the threads on the drive motor. Then I used pliers to remove the rest of the drive coupling. Then it's just a matter of screwing on the new coupling. Good as new and I didn't have to buy a new $150 blender.

The rubber of the coupling had deteriored and started crumbling until it no longer blended.

My husband lifted off the old piece with some difficulty and then just screwed it back on. We were really glad to have our blended back as good as new for under 20$!

Pretty muched followed the directions, but after reading all the reviews I knew what do to before the part arrived. Super easy. My blender had been out of commission for a while...now I'm back in business. Well worth the $14 (part and shipping).

The coupling for my blender disintegrated

  • Customer: Thomas from Globe, AZ
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 1 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
The repair is easy. Just follow the directions that come with the replacement part. And parts select is awesome. I received the parts within a couple of days and fixed it right away.

I will definitely use this company again. The blender was over $120 when I brought it and I did not want to spend that kind of money again. My cost to fix was about $8.00 for the part and $7.00 for shipping. Hmmmm, $15 vs. $120+ sounds like a good deal to me.
Thank you.

Watched the video on the site on how to remove the old one and install the new one and it took me all of 5 minutes, at most. I almost threw it away. Super cheap repair. The product arrived in 2 days too. I am saving the site. They are great.

KitchenAid blender Coupling was worn out

My husband actually did the repair and he simply followed the instruction that came along with the Coupling part ordered. Within 10 minutes, he was done with his repair. We were both happy and surprised. I thought it would be difficult for him to do it and I initially wanted to just buy a brand new blender rather than trouble ourselves with doing the repair. With the cost of $15.00 inclusive of shipping cost, the blender is working perfectly and we were able to save money. We are happy with our order and would definitely recommend others to do the same thing. In only takes a few minutes to place the order on-line, about two days for shipping, and about 10 minutes for the repair... What a relief! Thank you to part Select.com :) Deb and Don Dominguez

Hardest part was taking off the old coupling. I locked the drive with a thin wrench and pryed the coupling off. Took about ten minutes to get off and two minutes to put the new gear on. Remember the thread is counter clockwise. PartSelect was great the part arrived in two days.

Simply to find the look of dismay in her face. After I violently began shaking and dismantling the compactor in disgust. I decided to unplug it from the wall, I then gathered my senses and began to perform a electrical diagnosis and found that the rotary swich contacts, which activates the compactor, had gone bad. I simply went to the website and selected my part # from the detailed spec sheet. I chose to receive the package on a three day shipment. Here it arrived, installed the part and away the problem went. While on the parts list I included bag brackets that had broke over time and now my compactor is like new.

Read prior reviews from people who have done the same repair. Grasped shaft with thin nosed pliers and turned drive coupling counter clockwise.

  • Customer: Ernestine from Madison, ME
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

Intructions were simple. Pried off the old coupling with the screwdriver and applied presser to replace the new one on the spindle.

Comment: KitchenAid appliances are made to last unlike most other small kitchen appliances. They are made of strong materials and repairable where as other similar products get thrown out when they break.
