Question about Vitamix 36000 Work Top Blender
Ive been using a Vitamix 3600 Plus for awhile now with no issues. Today I went to make a smoothie (I had already made one this morning with no issues) and this time the blade wont spin. I took a look at both the base and the top part and there isnt any reason why the blade shouldnt spin. For some reason the base isnt connecting with the top to spin it. Could it have overheated? It is definately still turning on ok.
My Vitamix 3600 plus has same problem. Result of detachment of rubber coupling between lower splined socket from blade shaft. This is a tough rubber molding that takes tremendous punishment through years of smoothies. Mine showed some rust on the bottom of the blade shaft, where it parted. I tried gluing back together with super glue and tried to eyeball it. Of course it was off by a few degrees. When I reassembled and turned it on, what a racket of vibration! But it held. Amazing. Obviously not good to go though. So I took assembly all apart and redid it, chucking the shaft and the lower nut in the lathe. This time, all true on axis. Glue held for about a week. Right now I am regluing, this time with epoxy. We'll see how it holds up. And meanwhilst, I'm researching replacement parts! I'm not too optimistic about the epoxy.
