Edit Step 1 Blender Base  ¶ 

  • Before disassembling the blender base, make sure the blender disconnected from any power outlet.

  • Lift the jar straight up from the base without tilting the jar.

Edit Step 3  ¶ 

  • Remove the two base leg covers next to the power cord using pliers or a flat-head screwdriver.

  • This provides access to the base screws beneath.

Edit Step 4  ¶ 

  • Remove the following screws that secure the top and bottom halves of the base.

    • One 1/4 Phillips screw

    • One TA-20 screw

  • Both screwdrivers must have a minimum of a three inch shank (length).

  • Screwdrivers with extenders will not fit down the access holes.

Edit Step 5  ¶

Edit Step 6 Power Cord  ¶ 

  • Tug on wires in the marked locations to make sure they are secure.

  • If the wire stays still, the connection is secure.

    • If you still have problems with the blender, it is probably a problem with the motor. Since the motor is irreplaceable, you will have to order a new blender.

Edit Step 7  ¶ 

  • If the wire comes off, the connection is insecure. You will need to solder the connection to make it solid again.

  • If you don't know how to solder, here is a link to show you how. http://www.aaroncake.net/electronics/sol...

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.
