Question about Vitamix 5000 Work Top Blender
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.

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.
