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.

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.

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!!!!!!!

After reading repair stories on this site, I used wire splicers that just fit between the coupling and housing to hold the shaft while I used pliers to remove the broken coupling. I then hand tightened the new one . It works fine now.

Thanks to everyone before me and their stories!
I felt confident enough to try repairing my blender myself ! ! !
I just placed a flat head screw driver under the coupler and pushed up on the screw driver, 3 or 4 more times around the coupler. It broke away and a metal disc was left, which I unscrewed and I just screwed the new coupler on.
Thanks Again!

I inserted a metal rod in the bottom of the base while I held it sideways to keep the motor from turning and I used pliers to twist the coupling off counterclockwise.
I thought at first I was doing it wrong because it wouldn't nudge so I left it alone. I then read the repair stories again and went back to it and it right came off. I guess there was a lot of gunk holding it tight.
Of course when the new one came days later it was easy to twist it on. Thank you for all of your stories. They were very informative and encouraging. Without them I'm not sure if I would have attempted it myself.
