VM0100A Drink Machine has a burned smell with pitcher attached, but sounds ok when running without pitcher. Could it be the blade attachment?

Model 239. Gear blade is working but when pitcher is attached, why won't blade spin?


One of the driving clutch parts is slipping, it will be either the coupling on the motor or the one on the blade. Sometimes a repair can involve replacing both as it is possible for one to damage the other.

I can manually turn the blades inside the glass pitcher and I can turn the piece on the top of the motor base into which the pitcher blade attachment fits.


One of the parts is not being driven properly. Either the clutch on the top of the motor is not really attached to the motor shaft OR the clutch on the bottom of the blade is not engaging with the motor clutch OR the blade clutch is not properly attached to the blade shaft. On some models if you put the rubber sealing ring in the wrong place between the beaker and the blade housing it is enough to lift the clutches apart. The rubber wing goes between the beaker and the blade housing, not between the blade housing and the blade retaining ring.

My ninja blender won't start


Same thing happened to me and I ONLY used the thing 2xs (I was about to go H.A.M aka hard as a muthaF'er considering the price) then I tried the smaller cup size and it worked then went back to the larger pitcher and tried again. You have to ensure you have all the lock spots aligned and the top of the pitcher down securely. It worked after that...I also smelled like I was burning rubber at first but it works now...

Unit seems to work fine, but when the pitcher is attached, the blade hardly spins. It seems like it is loose or something. I can manually spin the bottom piece of the blade assembly, but the blade itself...


Depending on the age of your blender, a new blade assembly may be available. I would recommend calling Kitchenaid Customer Service for pricing. Their toll-free telephone number is:

Blade not turning


the top rubber piece could be worn enough that it is not engaging the pitcher. look at it carefully and see if the "teeth" of the rubber disc on top of the base has not cracked and worn away. a picture of the new one can be seen on the parts websites to compare I spent $10.00 for my replacement but i found them at other sites for $6.00. you will need a very skinny 7mm open ended wrench to get the old one off and it is left handed threads that means clockwise will loosen not tighten the part.i ground down my wrench but an ignition wrench from an auto store will usually be thin enough to reach the flats on the shaft under the rubber disc
