Question about Vitamix 5000 Work Top Blender
While using the vitamix blender it gets real hot, i'll smell something burning, and the vitamix will shut off. Sure it sounds like it's just overheating, but it will do this when i'm pureeing oatmeal for my son. it doesn't seam like it should do this with soft foods. help?
I work for Black & Decker appliances and have more than 10 years experience with small appliances.
Anytime you smell something burning while using an appliance that isn't suppose to heat food, something is wrong. You shouldn't smell any foul odors emanating from a blender. The fact that it shuts off while pureeing something as simple as oatmeal indicates that particular blender is defective.
If you contact the manufacture they will be able to inform you as to your warranty eligibility.

I have several of these blenders. Your motor is toast. What you are smelling is the windings melting together due to excessive heat. It's about $400-$700 to fix..... I've had several of these go down like this.
