This is a brand new coupler to replace your worn out one in your KitchenAid Blender. Fits all colors and configurations of the following models: KSB3 KSB5 Note that this will fit your blender if it begins with either "KSB3" or "KSB5". Most blender models will be something like "KSB3WH" or "KSB5OB1" where the last 2-3 letters only determine the color of the blender, which is not important for determining fit of this part.

It was very easy to install.

Thanks to the excellent description of the part on the internet, I was able to repair the blender without sending it to a service center.

My wife's aunt broke the piece by pushing down on the blender while it was running. This may be true on cheaper unit that may be unstable but this was a bad thing to do on the KitchenAid unit. It ended up breaking a few teeth on the coupling. I thought I'd have to dump the unit and buy a new one but some research pointed me to this replacement unit. Replacing it was a piece of cake. Take a flathead screw driver and point it at a 45 degree angle against one of the left over teeth on the angled side and hit the screw driver sharply with a hammer. You need to do it such that when it hit, the piece will turn "clockwise" which will unscrew it. It's a reverse thread so it's NOT lefty-loosy and righty-tighty but the opposite. One or two hits will loosen the coupling so you can unscrew it and screw on the new one. Presto!!! $10 fix vs $100 new unit.

We called Kitchen Aid because this was the second blender that this part failed on. Of course it was out of warranty so they told us we would need to send in the unit for repairs. We found the part just popped off so my husband started hunting the part. We bought 2 and the repair took less than a minute. More people need to know about this.

Like another reviewer said, just unplug the blender, use a long screwdriver to stop the motor from turning, and then unscrew the coupling (in the opposite direction than you normally would). Took about 5 minutes... just had to find the right place to put the screwdriver to stop the motor.

Lara Docgirl, you rock - I'm so happy I found your instructions here!

I first tried the printed instructions that came with the spare part, over and over dozens of times, and my husband did, too. No result, just idle spinning and mounting frustration. Next, I tried blocking the motor wheel with a screwdriver inserted from the bottom to unscrew the coupling from the top, but it was difficult to find the right spot and I feared I'd break off some motor blades or damage the wires. Then I tried tiny flat spanners in my toolbox to stabilize the socket to screw off the coupling on top of it - but although the spanners fit under the coupling, they were still the wrong size: more idle spinning.

Then I tried Lara Docgirl's approach - (1) place the unplugged blender base on a tabletop, facing you, base down/coupling up; (2) take a punch or a flathead screwdriver, and place it against one of the coupling teeth that is furthest away from you; (3) strike the back of the screwdriver with a small hammer or mallet. The result will spin coupling clockwise. It may take several tries, but the coupling will eventually spin clockwise faster than the motor, and it will begin to unthread;(5) unscrew the old coupling, and screw the new coupling into place (counterclockwise). Note that the new coupling will tighten itself every time you use your blender, so no need to worry about tightening it too much.

Hey presto! It worked (although my original coupling was so worn that it had no teeth left - I just let the screwdriver sink in the rubber while hitting it lightly with a rubber mallet) - in about 20 seconds, or about 5 taps the old coupling came off, no real force needed! After an hour of frustration!!! Now I'm off to fix the margarita to celebrate!!!

I followed this review to test the removal before ordering...

"Several other reviewers have mentioned this, unplug the blender, use a long screwdriver to stop the motor from turning (insert screwdriver from bottom of base up through one of the holes in blender base), and then unscrew the coupling. Simple and easy."

Took 10 seconds and was much easier than using a hammer or a torque wrench to get the top twisted off. Just insert the screwdriver towards the middle of the bottom so it effectively prevents the flywheel from spinning then hand twist the coupler 'righty loosey'. : )

I was ready to give up on my kitchen aid blender. noticed that the coupler drive (thing a magiggy is what i called it before) was breaking a part every time i used my kitchen aid. i have had the thing since 2004 and never had any problems. so i when it was tearing apart i thought it was over and put the base in the recycling bin. i started using the web to look up new blenders and then amazon saved my kitchen aid. i saw that the part could be replaced and went to the recycling bin cleaned my old blender and pried off the old coupler ( watched a youtube video on how to) and when my new coupler came in the mail popped the new one in and it worked like new. The coupler saved me $90.

if you have a kitchen aid blender model ksb5mc4 then this is the correct part. it does not install exactly
per instructions. if you carefully pry off the old one you will see what to do.

I got my part from buy-it-now-store. It is high quality, but comes without instructions. I found instructions buried in Kitchen Aid's forums, they say to use a special tool (which you have to buy as well). It ends up that a very flat 7 mm (9/64") open end wrench to secure the axle while you turn off the old coupling will do the trick. Not something everyone will have around the house, but if you have it, it makes replacement easy. The thread is reversed, to get it off you have to turn the coupling clockwise.

Contributors to the forum say you can also pry it off with a screwdriver, but Kichten Aid recommends not doing this.
