The blade assembly is not being locked onto the base of the container. Check the instructions for the correct procedure.

It will probably just need the pot replacing, take note of where the wires go. I see someone else here is doing the same job and wants to know where to put them back. Take a photo first saves a lot of grief. The pot is the rotary resistance switch behind the knob.

Hi there. I know you were looking for an answer 5 months ago. I didn't see the correct procedure listed. My speed control just bit the dust. Anyway, here goes: Pull off the rubber cover where the container sits. You'll see 4 phillips screws, unscrew them (you can leave them in place). Next, on the black drive wheel in the center, look to find a small triangle molded into the outside of the ring. Line it up with a small slotted opening just under the drive wheel. Use a small allen wrench which fits in and unscrews a set screw. You can lift off the drive wheel. Now you have to pull the top off. On mine, it took some time as I was trying to be careful not to break anything. With persistence the top will separate from the base. My super 5000 has a 2 wire speed control knob. Hope this helps if you haven't gotten an answer elsewhere or taken it to the shop.

At least on Amazon, the customer reviews are not so good ... only a 3.1 out of 5 for 38 reviews. Some of the poor ratings are that the unit just stopped working or a plastic housing part broke. You may have blown the motor. If it is still under warranty, and you have the receipt, you might consider shipping it back to Cuisinart ... but you pay for the shipping

are talking the blade inside the canister if so it unscrews from the clear handle and view area. otherwise if you mean the chuck below when the canister is lifted off that is held on by a fastener right in the middle dead center

Check the black driving clutch on the top of the motor that engages with the other clutch half on the base of the blender jug. The fault should be there, normally it will be the motor part.

Yes, I know what it is. On the base of the blender jar (the plastic base) there are some "fingers" that must contact the base to allow operation to take place. Turn it upside down and look at the little plastic "fingers" around the outside periphery of the plastic base.

These fingers tend to break over time... mine only has two left right now, and it only works in one particular position as a result.

Rotate the blender jar one spot at a time until you are able to operate it "normally". I use it for margaritas, and it won't allow me to push the button for Frozen Drink unless the jar is in the right position.

I am going to try and find a replacement base (or entire blender jar) somewhere... or else I will finally have to retire my favorite blender of all time!
