Lubrication of Cutting Blade bearing?
My Cuisinart CSB-75 Stick Blender has performed well for 2 yrs. Lately it has slowed down & heated near the bearing. Is there a way to lubricate the cutter bearing??
jarmush, If you are talking about the bearing in the blender shaft assembly, it will be sealed/non greaseable for food safety reasons and new part is available to change. Below is a guide on how to change the blade/shaft assy., and a couple links to possible replacement part which you can also do a search for better pricing perhaps. Good luck. I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
Richard, I did a search on the bearing/blender shaft seizing up and found this page. I had already tried what you suggested (I have worked with small and large electronics for years) and it didn’t help at all. Pretty disappointing. There’s nothing wrong with the motor housing or motor itself, though if one would continue to use it with the bad bearing, it will surely chew up the plastic ring gear that the shaft mates with. Cuisinart discontinued this item, so sadly, those of us that feel fixing is better than trashing… too bad. What to do with a motor that’s just fine, and nothing to drive with it? TRASH. Just what the planet needs… :(
That's not a fix, that's a replacement.
Anyone know how to take apart the blade/shaft assembly?
Seems a bit like overkill. If it’s gone far enough to need help, there is probably enough clearance between the bearing surfaces/seal to gradually oozle in a bit of food-grade caster oil (applying small amounts and hand rotating/pushing pulling the blade repeatedly) to get the bearing surfaces slippery. Even the tiny bit of play I felt in mine resolved with this exercise. It remains to be seen how long this will last, but clearly the fallback position is replacement.
