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)

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.

The blade in my Super 5000 wet container turns very stiffly.Should I take it off and lubricate it? There also seems to be water visible under the bottom of the container.


Stiff or stuck blade problems can be fixed by replacing the two bearings and seal inside the blade assembly. Care must be taken in installing the new bearings as not to damage them. Ideally they should be pressed in, on a press, but they can carefully be tapped in using a sockets to match inner and outer races so your not tapping on the balls.

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
