I tried the vinegar thing but it didn't quite work. We blended some smoothies with yogurt and it leaked through the bottom. No big deal, we tightened it up. We didn't clean it immediately. By the time we went to clean it, it was stuck. The vinegar didn't work, tried baking soda with vinegar, didn't work. Finally we ran the bottom underneath hot water for about 5-10 minutes. Finally after one strong turn the bottom came off. We have an oyster, the base can be used as well to take the bottom off but it turns counter-clockwise.

The thermal fuse in your food processor could be buried in the motor windings. As a general rule, it is not advisable to substiturte fuse types and ratings.

a thermal fuse may be located near the motor to sense an overheated motor. the fuse may be about 1/2 inch long and about 1/8 inch cylinder with two wire connections. these are available at Radio Shack or more. match the temperature rating...read the print on cylinder. if none found, look on circuit board for any print starting with letter "F". that part may be a fuse.

Check that blade can turn easily with unit unplugged. Fix that first then replace the fuse.
