Question about KitchenAid KSB5 Professional Stainless Steel Work Top Blender

1 Answer

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?

The canister/jar of the blender is apparently stuck on the blending unit itself and cannot be removed. It just slides onto the central post which causes the blades inside the canister to spin. The blender works alright, but the canister cannot be removed for cleaning. This is quite a problem and of course, the owner's manual can't be located. Any advise on how to remove it from the blender will be appreciated.

    I don't know what more information you need but I will say again the pitcher is apparently 'locked' onto the base itself and cannot be removed. I have tried. I did find the owner's manual online and read it in its entireity but it didn't help at all. If no one can help me via Fixya then I will contact KitchenAid & try to locate an authorized service center and pay someone to remove the pitcher. Like I have stated before the blender works but the pitcher can't be removed for cleaning.

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.

Make sure the blade assembly is put together in the correct order. The blade needs to go through the gasket so that the order is pitcher glass, gasket, and metal blade base. Then the final plastic cap threaded onto the pitcher. If the gasket is not between the pitcher and the metal blade assembly, you will have leaks.
Also, check the gasket to be sure it's not cracked and that it doesn't have residue on it.
I hope this helps. If it does, please come back and rate my suggestion!

SOURCE: Blade not turning

I am looking at the same problem, the aluminum bottom part (on blade assembly) that contacts the black rubber on the motor part is no longer "attached" to shaft that drives the blade on top side. So like said the top and bottom "turn freely" but independent of each other.... not good, they should be one piece. Ebay does not have a replacement for this original part in my case and would have to buy a complete jar assembly. I will attempt to fix the original one by cutting a slot through aluminum and center shaft and dropping in a pin to make them turn together, with a spot of weld to hold pin to shaft... not sure how long this will last.... unless somene has a better idea to fix it?

I have a kitchen aid blender with a polycarbonate jar. The jar leaks at the blade. I noticed it has a plastic nut on the bottom with left hand threads. However the nut will not fit over the drive gear...


Older KitchenAid blenders had a jar that was made so the blade assembly could be removed for cleaning. On the newer models the blender jar and the blade assembly are all one unit so you have to purchase a new jar to get the blade assembly. All of this is dependent on which model of blender you have.

We would be happy to help you. Please a give us a call at 1-800-339-9297 we would be happy to help! One of our repair technicians can talk you through the repair over the phone free of charge. On the bottom of your blender is the model and serial numbers; have these handy when you call so we can help you order the correct part.

We have several blender jars on our Web site http://www.mendingshed.com/kitaidblen.html for KitchenAid blenders. If we don't have the blender jar that fits your model in-stock we can order it and ship it to you. Please contact us with any further questions. You can also email your model number or questions to customerservice@mendingshed.com


Sincerely,

Blender does not blend, only buzzes. So I took the blender jar off the motor base and tried running it. It ran just fine. Put the jar back on the base and it only buzzed. Figured a piece of frozen fruit...


Smart move. The blade assembly is almost frozen and the motor does not have enough torque.. You need to remove the blade assembly and completely clean out the bearing and reassemble after the Mr. clean operation. A lite dab of oil is also called for.

Many blenders will work with a standard canning jar (pint or quart) I'm not sure if that will work for you, but it's a definite cheap fix.

Unit began smoking and smelled hot


If this was a recent purchase for which you have a receipt, return it to the store immediately while you still can. If it is beyond the store's return policy, but purchased less than one year ago (most times you will still need a receipt), call Black and Decker to get in-warranty service/replacement.

In fact, call Black and Decker anyways - if the BL5000 was manufactured between Dec.2003 and Jan.2005 (highly possible if it was marked on clearance), the blade assemblies were recalled. here is the recall notice:
http://www.blackanddeckerappliances.net/safetyrecall2.html

If it is out of warranty, let the blender cool for an hour. Then remove the blender jar, plug in the base, and see if it will spin with nothing attached to it. See if it smokes if left on for 1 full minute - don't let it run longer than one minute.

If it doesn't smoke, let it cool for an additional 20 minutes. Then remove and then reassemble the blade assembly, gasket, etc., collar, jar, etc. Try blending. If it smokes while blending, order a new blade assembly and gasket (usually they come packaged together - around $20 or so). Once the new blade assembly/gasket arrives, try blending again. If it doesn't smoke, you're probably good to go. If it does smoke, you have a more serious issue.

All of this is going to take time and money if it is out-of-warranty. If you have deemed that the blender is worth more than $50 for a new one, let me know.

Turns on but doesn't spin!


It sounds like your blending assembly is shot, you'll have to order a new jar since the blade is not replaceable in this model.

Hello, we stored the blender in a box w. the jar on the base and now the jar is stuck on the base...anything that might help?


1) Vinegar - apply vinegar to a rag and apply to any exposed areas - use a q-tip to dribble vinegar into hard-to-reach places. Let a cup of vinegar sit in jar itself. After 20 minutes, try to remove.

2) Hot Water in blender jar.

3) Freezer - don't let it sit too long - 10 mins tops - last resort.

If all else fails, break parts, and reorder them here:
