This answer was rated:

I have a Kitchenaid Artisan blender and this week, the 'middle' part would not 'mesh' with the base? It has had very little use and I cannot understand why this should happen when last time I used it, it was perfect. Can you help please

It is only about 2 years old, very little used I have to say.

Model no. 5KSB555BBUO

serial W10870989

great service thank you.

Hi Karen, look very carefully for bent or broken parts where it attaches to the base. Especially plastic tabs.
let me know what you find.
You may need to order replacement parts for the part that attaches to the base, also look for debris down there, Use a good lighting source this is common for these.
I can also help you order the part you may need if it comes to that.

thank you Michael can I send you a photo of the part so that you can see quite clearly the 'mechanism' - would you mind giving me an email address where I can send it so that it reaches you. I am not technical enough to attach to this!!! many thanks

How much would that middle part cost?

Hi Karen you can send that to this site, and I will get it.
I not allowed to call unless you rate my service as good or better then I could talk to you and maybe we can figure out what going on quickly;-)
Thanks you for understanding.
