VitaMix Burning Rubber

I have had my vita-mix for some time but have not used it often until now. But for last few days when I turn it on it starts smoking, and smells like burning rubber. And black rubber flakes are coming off bottom. All the parts seem to be spinning and working properly but obviously something is wrong. Any ideas?

SOURCE: blender turns off

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 hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

SOURCE: My vita-mix just stopped working, there is slight

If the burning smells like plastic then the walnut shells most likely put too much strain on the motor and burned it out. If the burning does not smell like plastic then you most likely have walnut shell grit jamming your motor.

This can be cleaned out by first ENSURING IT IS UNPLUGGED FROM THE WALL.

  • First remove the canister (if possible)
  • The remove the blade (if possible) check for a build up of grit between the blade and the shaft connecting it to the motor.
  • Check the channel the shaft passes through from the motor for large chunks of walnut shells or date paste.
  • Clean the canister thoroughly with warm water and leave it to soak overnight in a water/soap mixture.
If this has not resolved the issue then try to claim it under warranty or source replacement parts online.

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.

Contact Vitamix, find a service agent through them and have it looked at. You are only going to be able to get your motor (if you need one) through someone associated with Vitamix anyway.

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
