Can you repack the blade bearing on Vitamix Blenders?

The blade bearing is leaking grease and I want to repack it with food grade grease. How can I remove the seal so that I can clean and repack the bearings.

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.

Burning smell in the container and outside when in use


Seal under blade Assembly, on shaft leaks, allows liquid to enter bearing, which then fails, creates heat and overheats rubber, thus the smell. Bearing and seal must be replaced.

Hand blender bottom shaft (blade attachment) leaks oily stuff


In the old days, there was a packing in certain places of certain applications.
Often it looked like a piece of string, usually a grayish color, as it often was impregnated with grease.
I would start with an automotive parts house, but it must be old and have old folks to help you, as young ones have no such experience.
You could also try a plumber, they used some packing string.
As a matter of fact, I have some in my plumbing repair parts, though I've no used it in 30 years.
You might have to use this each time you use the machine.
It should be not expensive.
God bless your efforts.

Grease build up around blade and where it attaches to base


Grease can only creep into the blender vase if the oil seal has worn out, or the blenders blade shaft is worn and wobbling. Try cleaning all parts in alcohol to soften the seals. Rebuild kits and replacement blades can be found here (http://www.brevilleusa.com/breville-parts/blending.html)

Cuisinart model # SPB-6 (tx) leaking when unit is together, seal is in place, still leaking. Unit is not damaged, please advise.


Check if leaking at the bearing for the blade.

If the bearing has worn, dis-assemble and coat shaft with food-safe grease and re-assemble. Also coat the seals with the grease.

Bamix stick blender Handle vibrates but shaft does not turn


Old food residue and juices will have got into the shaft bearings, and have dried out enough in 9 years to stop it turning. Starting with the simplest solution, try immersing the shaft in hot, or even boiling, water nearly up to the top of the metal shaft. CAUTION - DON'T BURN YOURSELF! Let it stand in the water for a few hours, and then try turning the shaft by hand (with the machine unplugged, of course). This could be repeated a number of times. You may also be able to unscrew the blade guard after this treatment, bear in mind it has a left hand thread, so if you are looking at it from the bottom, turn it clockwise to loosen. Be careful not to lose any seals or springs when it comes off.

If this doesn't work, support the Bamix upside down, and pour a small amount of WD-40 into the blade guard, so that it pools around the end of the shaft. Leave to stand, and the oil should slowly seep into the bearings, dissolving the food residues. Again, try this a few times.

If neither of these work, the Bamix will need to be dismantled to clean the shaft and bearings. This is really beyond the scope of this forum and requires some experience of this type of work.
