Simply followed the online video instructions. Screwdriver to remove the worn out part. Rag to clean threads. Hand tighten replacement part (reverse threads). Blender fully functional. Couldn't have been easier.

Coupler between base and container was stripped

  • Customer: Larry from SAN FRANCISCO, CA

  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

I tried turning defective coupler off after inserting a narrow screw driver into the motor fan bladed. That did not work. I then used a wide bladed flat-head screw driver to pry the defective coupler disc off the motor shaft. After prying each side over and over, the old coupler base broke free. I cleaned the remnants of the base from the threaded shaft and then screwed the new coupler on only finger tight. It went on easily. For less than $15.00 (including shipping) we now have a working blender that hopefully will last another 10 years.

My blender I bought at an estate sale needed a new drive coupling.

I used a straight edge screwdriver. At first my husband and I were afraid to much too much force behind the old coupling, but I figured it's no good the way it was so used more force and "pop" it came off. Then installed the new one and I love my blender!!

replace the drive coupling

  • Customer: Thomas from Long Beach, CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers
  • 1 of 1 people found this instruction helpful
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

  • Customer: Ernestine from Madison, ME
  • Difficulty: Really Easy

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.

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.

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?!

easier than i anticipated. i thought i would have to tear the unit down to get this part installed, but the replacement came with (even an idiot can do it)instructions, and it took all of four minutes. Mike in Albemarle,NC..

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.
