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

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.

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.

Followed the instructions that came with the replacement drive coupler, first removeing the old part using a screw driver, and then easily screwed on the new part. Removing the old part without the aid of the instructions would have been problematic.

The drive wheel had worn teeth

  • Customer: Tom from West Palm Beach FL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

The replacement part arrived so swiftly I didn't know what it was until I opened the packet.

The motor drive shaft has two flanges on it that can accept a narrow wrench and the drive wheel can be screwed off clockwise!
Alternatively the drive wheel can be easily prised off and the drive wheel screwed on anti-clockwise thread.
Success
Of course if the drive wheel was made of a more durable material this would not have been a problem unfortunately typically american not made to last!

Hammer was used to remove the old one, tapping quickly on old coupling. I did use a thin pliers (wire stripper) to hold shaft when I screwed on new coupling, even though it said one did not need to. Good instruction sheet came with the new coupling.

Broken Coupling and worn-out seal on a Blender

  • Customer: Carolyn from Downers Grove IL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 1 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
To start with the coupling, I followed the directions by using a flat screwdriver and a thick towel. I placed the towel under the screwdriver to protect the base unit from damage as I pivoted 1/2 of the tip under the coupling, pulling it up as I went around until the coupling popped off. Then I cleaned the remainder of any metal left behind. Then I attempted to screw the coupling on clockwise but the screw opening was slightly to small. So I plugged in the unit and held the coupling with the screwdriver in place and turn the unit on stir and it screwed it on clockwise.
Next, the seal was replaced at the bottom of the jar. And I was finished. Easy as pie.

KitchenAid Blender: The directions said to use a screw driver to pry off the old drive coupling, and then clean out any remaining broken pieces. The drive coupling screws on so that did not make sense to me. I called KitchenAid and they gave me a number of the closest KitchenAid dealer. I was told that I needed to be careful not to bend the drive shaft; I would need to find some way to secure the drive shaft from turning while unscrewing (a reverse screw) the drive coupling. Find the appropriate size thin ignition wrench. Remove the old coupling and screw on the new coupling.

SMALL TABS BROKEN OFF

I UTILIZED THE "POUND THE COUPLING IN A CLOCKWISE DIRECTION" TO LOOSEN THE COUPLING. TWO GOOD "WACKES" AND IT WAS LOOSE. INSTALLED NEW COUPLING. I FOUND THIS METHOD IN THE PREVIOUS CUSTOMER INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS ON THE SITE. PLEASE NOTE THAT MY NEW PART NUMBER IS PS401661. THIS PART WORKS NORMALLY EVEN THOUGH MY MODEL NUMBER DID NOT LIST A PART NUMBER, PERHAPS BECAUSE MY BLENDER IS AN OLDER MODEL. WITHOUT THE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS SITE I WOULD NOT HAVE KNOWN THAT THE THREAD WAS A "REVERSE THREAD". THIS SITE IS VERY HELPFUL. GOOD LUCK

Shattered drive coupling on blender

  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Wrench set

I looked on the Web for help in changing this part they suggested prying the part off with a screwdriver. This would work but I figured this approach was a little to brutal.I had a set of distributor wrenches and these had one that fit the shaft under the drive coupling Using the wrench to hold the shaft I used a small set of water pump pliers to remove the coupling.As the directions on the Web states this is a reverse thread.The whole project took all of five minutes to complete
