Where can I get a manual for the said Vitamix?


Go here to download it as a PDf file. The 5200 is what I think is most similar to yours.

Vitamix 5000 Why does it run only on high ?


It very likely needs a new pot switch. That is the rotary one that varies the speed. Purchase through your local Vitamix service agent in your country.

Can you repack the blade bearing on Vitamix Blenders?


On the Vitamix blender models we have here in NZ it is not possible to repack the bearings, you just purchase a new blade assembly complete with bearings and the driving clutch.

How do i change the gear on the top of the Vitamix 5200


Remove beaker, remove big black rubber part from top of motor housing. At the back just below the gear you will see a small dob of white silicone, dig it out. That will reveal a gap to allow you to put an allen key in there. Inspect the top flange of the "gear" carefully, there is a nearly invisible arrow or marking in one place. Line that up with the gap at the back, that is where the allen screw is.Undo it and lift the gear off. Read the instructions that come with the new gear.

I need to replace the speed control potentiometer. How do I open the case on this machine?


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.
