Can you back-out the appliance? If you can, you may be able to re-cut the threads. If not, you may need to cut the appliance out and pull the crank with a gear puller. You might also pull the other arm out and get it out that way, too.

Try using a wooden dowel rod placed on the spindle in the hole where the ring is supposed to go and tapping the end of the spindle until frees itself from the drive side crank arm.

If you can get the extractor ring out of the crank, it should be possible to retap the arm (might need to take it to a machinist to fill and recut the aluminum or to make you a slightly larger ring)
As rmerka said, one the ring is out you should be able to tap out the crank with a punch and a mallet.
