Vitamix TNC 60 oz container leaks when in use. how to replace seal and or bearings?


If it is not the HUGE blade retaining ring under the beaker a bit loose then you will be buying new parts to repair it. The only other possibilities are beaker cracked and leaking (new beaker) or bearings & seals worn (new blade & bearing assembly)

Leaks at the bottom of the glass holder


I'm no expert but in my experience if it leaking at the bottom then either the jar /carafe has a few chips or cracks around the hole in the bottom that the blade fits through and in that case you need to replace the jar and your blade assembly may still be good and can be moved to a new jar/carafe. Or the blade assembly has come loose a little and need to be tightened or some the washers (usually the rubber ones) have worn out and need to be replaced. There's plenty of explanation here at amazon and else where on how to replace the assembly blade, move it to a new jar and tighten it down, etc. Hope this helps!

Check to see if the jar has any cracks or if the blade assembly or collar have any cracks.
Is it possibly leaking from the tap valve?
If the blades or tap lever are cracked I would recommend replacing them, however if the jar is cracked i would just buy a new blender. These are great for smoothies but they are all discontinued and parts wont be available for much longer.

How do I fix or replace my kitchenaid blender blade KSB560BF (Polycarb Jar)? It's leaked thru the blade assembly.


Make sure the blade assembly is put together in the correct order. The blade needs to go through the gasket so that the order is pitcher glass, gasket, and metal blade base. Then the final plastic cap threaded onto the pitcher. If the gasket is not between the pitcher and the metal blade assembly, you will have leaks.
Also, check the gasket to be sure it's not cracked and that it doesn't have residue on it.
I hope this helps. If it does, please come back and rate my suggestion!

Blade not turning


Ouch. That doesn't sound good.
Is the blade seating & locking on the spindle? Try turning it with your hand (unplug the blender first!).
Examine the underside of the blade, and the spindle, for cracks.

If you find a problem here, it may be a simple matter of replacing the blade assembly.

If not, try running it dry... no blade, no container. Just short shots of one second. Is the spindle turning? If it turns, then put the container & blade back on... but just put water in the container.
If the blade turns, whipping the water (but doesn't turn if you put something more dense in it), that suggests that your bearings are going out.

In summary:
  • If the spindle turns but the blade doesn't turn, look at your blade assembly. (Plastic can hide a crack.)
  • If the spindle turns "sometimes", but not when subjected to resistance, then it's probably worn bearings.
  • If the spindle doesn't turn at all, then your blender will need to be professionally repaired or replaced.

There is probably a hairline fracture or tiny crack in the blade assembly itself - replace the blade assembly - it will automatically come with a gasket, so you will have an extra.
