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.

Being an aircraft mechanic for years I pride my self on being able to fix anything that my wife buys. So I tried to replace the drive gear for her kitchen aid blender without reading the instructions, much easier to read.
Thanks,

Forget about the repair blogs. The coupling includes a repair instruction sheet. It actually took longer to read the sheet than it did to do the repair. Follow the repair sheet instructions. Very easy, however not intuitive.

The part broke and the blender wouldn't operate correctly. ctlly.

After I discovered that it needed to be screwed on turning to the left it was simple.

replace the drive coupling

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$!

coupling had broken a couple of pieces off

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.

The drive coupling (what turns the blender) lost all teeths

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

It was harder than the directions said to get the old drive coupling off, but once the old was taken off, it was a piece of cake to put the new one on.

Thanks, great service from this website, received my part the next day after I ordered it!

Went to several online blog sites. Repair of the Kitchenaid blender is a hot topic. Could not repair it the way the instructions indicated. One person used a hammer and that did the trick! Who would have thought to use a hammer?!
