SOURCE: Blade not spinning

My Vitamix 3600 plus has same problem. Result of detachment of rubber coupling between lower splined socket from blade shaft. This is a tough rubber molding that takes tremendous punishment through years of smoothies. Mine showed some rust on the bottom of the blade shaft, where it parted. I tried gluing back together with super glue and tried to eyeball it. Of course it was off by a few degrees. When I reassembled and turned it on, what a racket of vibration! But it held. Amazing. Obviously not good to go though. So I took assembly all apart and redid it, chucking the shaft and the lower nut in the lathe. This time, all true on axis. Glue held for about a week. Right now I am regluing, this time with epoxy. We'll see how it holds up. And meanwhilst, I'm researching replacement parts! I'm not too optimistic about the epoxy.

Why is my vitamix leaking?


Probably the bearings in the blade assembly are wrecked, replace the blade assembly with a new genuine part. Someone here has fitted aftermarket bearings but I do not know how much gear they required to do the job. Search onsite for solutions may reveal more

Loosened blades on a vitamix 3600 stainless steel container


If what you can't see in your device, namely the motor assembly, it may be that the assembly is one of those not designed to be taken apart and that it is wearing out. If so, that could be the cause of the looseness you are experiencing. It may be unrepairable or more costly to fix than to replace. Twenty plus years is a good run for almost any mechanical device.

Vitamin 3600 canister leak


I think it's the little washer in the blade assmbly since mine was worn to a sliver when it started doing what yours did. I replaced it with a similar washer and it worked for a week and then started spitting out metallic dust until it stopped working again. Could be the bearing seized. I would say yes a new blade assembly but I hadn't found one- since I have a 3600 which is very old-when my husband bought a used replacement container with a working blade assembly on ebay. $37 bucks, problem solved.

Vita-Mix 5000 blender shuts off under heavy blending loads.


first check the blades on the container thay should turn easy by hand if not thats your problem , you will need blades . blades turn easy ? you will need to replace the motor . the temp /overload has changed and is tripping to easy . this is common with people that use there vitamix for tough chores a lot . a lesser blender would just burn up a motor in a puff of smoke .a vitamix dies this way . in the end its the same you will need a motor
