Following the instructions which was quite clear.

replace the drive coupling

  • Customer: Thomas from Long Beach CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers

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.

Rubber drive coupling on blender broke apart

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.

I used a pair of diagonal cutters to nip away at the drive coupling which had become gummy and soft. This exposed the inner aluminum hub that the drive coupling was molded to. I used several pieces of masking tape to protect the blender finish under the drive coupling. The instruction supplied suggest to pry upward with a screw driver at 1/4 turn intervals until it comes off the motor shaft. I thought this was a rough approach, as I was concerned about damaging the threaded motor shaft. Also note that the motor shaft has left handed threads, you would turn clockwise to loosen the drive coupling. The first approach I tried was to use a small ignition wrench, there are two flats directly below the coupling aluminum hub which measured 9/32" across the flats. The wrench even though small would have to been ground thinner to fit, this may have worked. I decided to use approach two. I used my dremel tool with a 1/32" cut off wheel and cut through each side of the aluminum hub staying away from the center where the motor shaft is threaded. Across the center of the hub I only cut through half the thickness, I then used the diagonal cutters to fold each half agains itself (the hub actually fell off). I installed the new coupling turning it counter clockwise on the motor shaft. I attached the blender jar filled with water with the jar lid on and toggled the blender on and off a few times to further tighten the drive coupling.

Broken teeth on the drive coupling

Since the coupling is threaded, it can be easily screwed on and off if you immobilize the shaft. If you don't have a tool that can do this (the space between the drive coupling and the body of the blender is only about 1/8"), you can insert a long bladed screwdriver into the vents on the bottom of the blender and into the motor. When you turn the coupling, the motor won't rotate and you can easily screw off the coupling (the threads are reversed, so turn the opposite way). Good luck!
Good
