Loose Object in Vitamix Turbo Blend 4500

I have a Vitamix Turbo Blend 4500 and have run into a problem. It began making a loud grinding noise, I turned it off and I heard something rattling around inside. I removed the four top screws and removed the casing and found a piece of metal loose in the unit. The piece of metal looks to be 2'' in length, 1/2'' wide and has inscribed on the topside from left to right ''1.00 B 28''. It appears to be a weight, with a rubber or soft foam backing and a painted gray top. I can't see clearly where it might of come loose from. Any ideas where it goes, if it can be fixed or do I need service? - Rox

Vitamix has a 5-year warranty. Go to their website and they will send you an empty box with a UPS pick up tag and fix it.

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: When trying to blend things like frozen fruit or

Frozen elements are generally not recommended for blenders of any brand. They may cause the blade assembly to stop moving completely, or to "bog down," and this may eventually damage the motor. It is recommended that frozen fruits and/or yogurt be thawed when possible before placing into a blender. If this is not a possibility for you, I would use a "pulse" or "chop ice" function to rapidly spin the blades for just a moment. This will chop the contents in smaller, more manageable parts. This should be done before adding other liquid ingredients.

I have a vitamix 5000 unit. Blade assy makes noice ; is loose. Where can I buy the set of bearings for the blade assembly?


You will need to source them from a bearing supply company as Vitamix only supply the bearings as a complete unit with the blade assembled. Once you have the bearings out take the sample with you to the bearing supply company for correct identification.

When i turn it onto high speed it willl fuse istanlty. (Even with somthing easy to blend like a smoothie) .Any ideas what could be wrong?


I would suspect a motor fault, most likely an insulation problem in the armature or the fields. Contact Vitamix for your local authorised service agent. Unless it has been assembled incorrectly it should not be one of the internal wires as they are supposed to be secured and correctly routed during assembly.

Want to make dried date shake in vitamix. recipe is 20 pitted dates, 1 cup milk do I need to soak dates first?


Dry or hydrated, I have done both ways. I really didn't notice a difference? The vitamix just beats it up so good, I don't think it matters? But that is my opinion.

Aren't they good though? : )

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 Blender will not power on


We just had this problem.  Called VitaMix and they talked about resetting the thermal protection switch inside.  They suggested lifting the base down firmly, but gently, on the counter to help the internal switch reset.  I did it while they were on the phone and, sure enough, the machine came back to life.  Hope this helps.

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
