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.

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.

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
