    Did you figure out any solution? I believe I have the same problem but cant find any information anywhere. It seems like a waste to have to buy a whole new motor when its just the gear on top that is messed up.

Drive socket meaning the clutch drive on top of the motor? If the shaft that part fits onto has sheared off then prepare to empty your wallet because that is the motor.

I have a Vita-Mix blender that is not performing right. Sounds like gear may be striped or slipping in and out of engagement. What can I do?


You may well find a small appliance repairer (not aligned to the manufacturer) locally who will take a look; alternatively, why not risk stripping it out yourself and taking a look?

Can't unscrew drive socket on vitamix super 5000 to replace it. The 5/64 hex wrench does not fit in. And another problem is that variable speed does not function. It is possible only slow or high speed.


The hex wrench only fits in one position, there is a groove in the lip in the top housing and you need to turn the coupling until the hex screw head lines up. The groove is normally plugged with a dob of white silicone. The hex screw is not tightened fully tight on reassembly, the coupling needs a bit of slop. Speed control problem will likely involve replacing the control switch assembly.

The piece thaat makes my vitamix turn fell off


Sounds like your drive socket broke. Use a small allen wrench to loosen set screw under arrow on drive socket. You will have to order a new socket from Vitamix. Hope this helps.

Sounds like gears are slipping and blades stop turning. no obvious damage to drive socket or gear on end of blade shaft.cant remove drive socket any suggestions on removal? Blade assy fits very loosly into...


First thing is to find the small hole on the plastic piece below the drive socket and remove the silicone in from it. Next turn the drive socket until the little arrow on the drive socket lines up with the hole, then look thru the hole to see the allen wrench screw in there loosen screw to remove drive socket.
