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: Stopped working

i had the same problem after only one month, took in back to walmart and they would do nothing. i love the big heavy glass jar on this model so i baught another on thinking i broke it some how and guess what, the second one stopped after one and a half months. called around and no one would do anything for me, company sucks, i took the bottom cover off the blender to expose the problem and there is a problem with the curcuit board and built in breaker. i ripped out all the speed buttons and curcuit board and just wired in a on/off switch to the motor. works great again. i still had a extra broken blender so i took a old chain saw i had and turned that one into a gas powered blender. problem solved, any questions please feel free to ask.

SOURCE: burning smell when used

No need to oil it. The carbon brush maybe sparking already it is located inside the motor. It is due to damaged Armature or overloaded motor.

Vitamix 5000 vm0103. When set to Variable, it does not run at all. Works fine on high. Is there a way to determine whether it's the pentionmeter or controlboard/circuitry by using an ohm meter?


Put your meter across the 2 disconnected potentiometer wires and turn the knob and see if you get the sort of variation you expect to see. The pots do give a little bit of trouble and aren't worth very much, I'd be inclined to throw one in anyway, the very last thing you want it to be is the PCB, they are not cheap.

There are many types of blender available on the market which perform a different operation. Some blender is famous for specific work.

Can you repack the blade bearing on Vitamix Blenders?


On the Vitamix blender models we have here in NZ it is not possible to repack the bearings, you just purchase a new blade assembly complete with bearings and the driving clutch.

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.
