The coupling that drove the blades had become too worn to work.
Used a screwdriver to pry off the original part, which came off in pieces, and installed the new part. I have not used it yet so hope it works as before. So glad not to have to buy a new blender. I don't use it often but nice to have. I ordered two couplings, and will know just what to do next time.. It seems like the coupling is the weakest part of the blender.

Rubber fins on coupling broke off
I've replaced this part before so I had no problems. Unplug the blender. Stick screwdriver in bottom side of blender to stop fins on shaft from turning. That stops the shaft from turning. While holding screwdriver in place put pliers on old coupling and turn clockwise. Mine came off real easy. Remember it comes off backwards from most things that screw on.

Coupling teeth breaking off
1. I followed someone's You Tube instructions. Not the instructions that said to pry the coupling off.
2. With screwdriver, hit the coupling teeth making the coupling turn clockwise. I hit the coupling teeth three or four times and the coupling just screwed off.
3.. Screw the new coupling on.
4. Using the blender will tighten it.

The "teeth" (???) that fit on top of the motor housing and fit up into the bottom of the jar when it's set on top had worn down and would no longer turn the blade inside the jar.
Screwed and pried off the coupling with the worn-down "teeth" or whatever you call those things and screwed the new one back on. that's it!.

Question: Removal Of Coupler

lreaton

I have model KSB5WW3 and found where part #9704230 will work with this model. The black plastic broke off completely but left a small metal disk. I have tried prying it off and was unsuccessful. I see where it says it is threaded on and to turn it clockwise to get it off. My problem is that the shaft turns as well - either direction. I tried to hold the shaft with a plier but am unsuccessful with that also.
I was successful getting it off. I had to use a little more pressure to pry it off, but it did come off as shown in your youtube video. Thanks!
Easy to remove. Go to you-tube and search "Kitchen-Aid Blender Coupler". All you need is a small screwdriver and a hammer. After watching the video, I had mine off in less than 30 seconds.
Question: Kitchenaid Blender

How do you replace the coupling. I don't see a screw or anything to remove the old one.
I read where you can do it one of two ways: Buy a special little tool which helps you unscrew the coupler from its spindle - or gently pry the coupler off it's spindle. The reference said the metal on the spindle is harder and won't be damaged when you pry the coupler off. I am trying to find the tool as I don't want to take the chance in prying techique. good luck at yr end
Don't pry!
The rubber coupler is attached to a metal holder that screws onto the driveshaft with a LEFT HAND thread.
Simply unscrew the coupler assembly by turning clockwise.
Hi dana015,

If you use a screw driver and a hammer, give it a sharp smack LEFT HANDED THREAD. It takes a touch but it will work. Careful of your thumb.

Yes, DO NOT PRY. It is indeed reverse threaded. It takes a very thin and small wrench to hold the shaft while unscrewing (backwards) the head. Not having that I cut off all the damages rubber coupling to reveal the metal disk that is screwed in. The advise to give a smart whack with a hammer and screwdriver was exactly right. It worked.
The sharp clockwise whack with hammer and screwdriver totally worked (maybe need a couple of whacks). Thanks for the advice!
