Waring blender bg5000 loud pitch noise not blending---burnt smell

I, i just received a new bg5000 said to be equivalent of 51BL25 model. problem is when i tried to make a smoothie it makes a really high pitch loud noise and i don't see the frozen bits and milk blending at all inside. i ran it without the jar and it runs find and there is no loud/high pitch noise. what is going on? it seemed that sometimes it would "engage" and most of the time it woudl not. ah, also when that is going on it would start to smell like something burning inside. i also tried lifting and put it back to see if itwas problem with the wheel not sitting properly, and it is not that. helped! i am sick of throwing out my waring blenders.

SOURCE: stopped blending

Exact same problem.  Turned out the threaded shaft that holds the blades was broken so tightening the nut on the top doesn't really help.  Just ordered a new blade assembly from  Mine was the Waring 007314W Blender Cutting Assembly but there is also an older one for earlier models.  Don't know if it will work yet (assume it will), but cheaper than buying a new blender.

Obviously the motor winding is burned out. it needs to be rewound. This is can be done only by repair men who regularly wind motors.

All blenders have one thing in common. They draw more than rated current when running slow. If u continued using it inspite of noticing low speed then the it results in burnt motor winding as is the case now.

Also the blenders should not be run on no load, which will cause meahanical damage to fan and bearings.

SOURCE: i have a waring

Hi I am Steve, lets get you some help.
I assume this is the retaining collar on the blender that you twist to release the top assembly rather than anything else.
It could just be out of alignment and gently shaking the bowl whilst applying a pressure to the collar may clear whatever is causing the jam.

51BL25 (model number) It was getting really loud and then would not break ice or frozen fruit, and then it kinda "died". I could smell something hot from the motor

None of this is good news for your blender.

since new ones are less expensive than a repair it would be wise to go to walmart and get a new one.
