Vitamix 3600 manual

I need to replace the toggle switch on my 3600. Its a Carling but has no part number, there are so many switches out there. Any idea on what specific switch I can buy to replace the broken one?

Get a switch with the same or higher voltage and current rating, and similar mounting and terminal connections. If you can't find the rating on the switch itself, use the nameplate rating on the appliance label.

Once you have these numbers, go to the Carling Tech toggle switch page and drill down through the selections to identify what you need. Toggle Switches

The drive stud on my vitamix 3600 blender sheared off. When screw is replaced it comes unscrewed when the blender is turned on. Does anyone know if the original design included epoxy weld?


If the motor runs in reverse to an Oster which uses counter clockwise thread then it follows that your thread should not be counter clockwise. If it comes loose when you turn it on surely the thread on the coupling must be faulty because according to your description the action of turning it on can only be to tighten the coupling. Most couplings with a thread that I have seen are counter clockwise so you will probably struggle to find another brand coupling to match.

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.

On my Vitamix 5000 the variable speed control does not work


It will probably just need the pot replacing, take note of where the wires go. I see someone else here is doing the same job and wants to know where to put them back. Take a photo first saves a lot of grief. The pot is the rotary resistance switch behind the knob.

Sounds like it may need a new blade/bearing assembly or coupling or both.

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.

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.
