If you own one of the products below, your container may be included in this recall. You can quickly determine if your product has been affected by looking at the blade in your container. The part number and date of manufacture are etched on the top of the blade, under the logo.

Vitamix TNC 60 oz container leaks when in use. how to replace seal and or bearings?


If it is not the HUGE blade retaining ring under the beaker a bit loose then you will be buying new parts to repair it. The only other possibilities are beaker cracked and leaking (new beaker) or bearings & seals worn (new blade & bearing assembly)

I need to replace the speed control potentiometer. How do I open the case on this machine?


Hi there. I know you were looking for an answer 5 months ago. I didn't see the correct procedure listed. My speed control just bit the dust. Anyway, here goes: Pull off the rubber cover where the container sits. You'll see 4 phillips screws, unscrew them (you can leave them in place). Next, on the black drive wheel in the center, look to find a small triangle molded into the outside of the ring. Line it up with a small slotted opening just under the drive wheel. Use a small allen wrench which fits in and unscrews a set screw. You can lift off the drive wheel. Now you have to pull the top off. On mine, it took some time as I was trying to be careful not to break anything. With persistence the top will separate from the base. My super 5000 has a 2 wire speed control knob. Hope this helps if you haven't gotten an answer elsewhere or taken it to the shop.

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

Older Vitamix Problem


Hi,

I want you to try this,

1.Remove the blender jar from the blender motor .

2. Check the jar by turning the shaft by hand to see if it rotates easily. .If not, disassemble the blade and ring. Check for obstructions or misalignment. It is better to change the shaft which holds the blade......

If it fails you again, you have to contact with the service center or visit this site

Hope my info helps you,
Thanx for using fixya,
Waiting to help you from your comments.....
