Question about Vitamix TurboBlend 4500 Work Top Blender
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

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.

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.
