I am sure a black plastic piece that held the blades tight has broken off. I found pieces of it. How do I replace that piece and where can I get it? Everything is working fine, the motor is turning. The blade is too loose to stay in place while engaged.

Mine did while I was using it, looking for the same answer, I don't want to go out and buy a whole new set
