SOURCE: Kitchen Aid Blender Rubber Coupling replacement

Someone else suggested a link that explains exactly how to unthread the old coupling... and it works. It took me about 90 seconds to fix my blender. But in case that link is dead, here's a summary:

(1) Note that the coupling (the round part with teeth) is threaded to the blender motor in reverse to a standard threading. So it screws off just like a bottle top, but in a clockwise direction.

(2) place the blender base on a tabletop, facing you. You should probably unplug it.

(3) take a punch or a flathead screwdriver, and place it against one of the coupling teeth that is furtherest away from you.

(4) strike the back of the screwdriver with a small hammer or maillot. The result will spin coupling clockwise. It may take several tries, but the coupling will eventually spin clockwise faster than the motor, and it will begin to unthread.

(5) unscrew the old coupling, and screw the new coupling into place (counterclockwise). Note that the new coupling will tighten itself every time you use your blender, so no need to worry about tightening it too much.

(6) Make a smoothie to celebrate your success!

SOURCE: My blender is model# KSB5 & it works fine; the problem is the 'jar' is stuck onto the unit. I cannot remove the canister no matter how hard I try. Help?

This is a most unusual case, under the circumstances I would contact KitchenAid for a solution, have you tried turning canister clockwise and anticlockwise, should unlock in "anticlockwise position" if no luck contact the manufacture.

How do I remove the black rubber rotating bit on the Kitchen Aid Blender?


My clever hubby made a spanner (piece of metal with a slot cut into it) that fits round the spine under the plastic cog and then using pliers he could just unscrew the offending piece. Use masking tape to protect the top of the blender. Thanks for previous suggestions though as it saved going to a repairer and paying unnecessary costs. Cheers.

I have a Kitchenaid blender model KSB5BU3 marked "Ultrapower" and "Electronic Control" on the side. Suddenly all the buttons started blinking together after we pressed the On button and then one of the...


When the lights are flashing, this does indicate that an electronic part has failed. This blender is no longer manufactured, so finding replacement parts for it may not come easily. Repair centers are available. I would recommend calling Kitchenaid Customer Service to see what they can recommend for you.

Their toll-free number is 1-800-541-6390.
