10 year old Vita Mix makes high pitched "whirring" sound on high

My vita-mix 10 years old makes a high pitched "whirring" sound with no mixing on High - it will mix on variable - but smells hot and is louder than normal - Any ideas -- they want me to send it in for $300 -- seems like I should be able to fix it here for less

The buttons on my vita-mix vm0115e wont work. We have been loosing one button at a time. Was going to see if there was a loose cable or something, but I can figure out how to get the base off.


WE do not have your model here in NZ but this is how you get into our models
Remove square rubber base beaker locates onto. Remove motor driving clutch. Remove 4 screws under rubber pad you have just taken off.

High pitched noise with use


The problem was the seal was worn, allowing liquid to seep past into the top blade shaft bearing washing out the grease and ruining the bearing. The "noise" you heard was the bearing running without any lubrication. Both bearings and the seal needed to be replaced but I have not found a source for purchasing these. Vita-Mix Company does not sell parts, they sell units (outrageously priced units)!

I have a Vita Mix 3600. I was making a fruit smoothie (banana, blueberry, raspberry), milk, small scoop of protein powder . Speed was on 1. I depressed the lever to reverse. I don't remember if I had...


Yes that is strange, if you let it cool down and try it again with pushing the re-set button and still does not work, try plugging it into a different outlet. Find something in your place that you know outlet is working, lamp, toaster you know. If does work in another out let, then you of course griped that breaker. Then check your breaker box to see what breaker is tripped, and switch it back on, might just of had a power surge based on putting on reverse. If that don't work, I suppose possibly something in motor or switch went out. Please let me know, if it works, I will take a banana smoothie LOL
