Check with a small appliance repair station for parts availability.

It will probably just need the pot replacing, take note of where the wires go. I see someone else here is doing the same job and wants to know where to put them back. Take a photo first saves a lot of grief. The pot is the rotary resistance switch behind the knob.

Vitamix 5000... | Answered on Mar 01, 2019


Hi there. I know you were looking for an answer 5 months ago. I didn't see the correct procedure listed. My speed control just bit the dust. Anyway, here goes: Pull off the rubber cover where the container sits. You'll see 4 phillips screws, unscrew them (you can leave them in place). Next, on the black drive wheel in the center, look to find a small triangle molded into the outside of the ring. Line it up with a small slotted opening just under the drive wheel. Use a small allen wrench which fits in and unscrews a set screw. You can lift off the drive wheel. Now you have to pull the top off. On mine, it took some time as I was trying to be careful not to break anything. With persistence the top will separate from the base. My super 5000 has a 2 wire speed control knob. Hope this helps if you haven't gotten an answer elsewhere or taken it to the shop.

At least on Amazon, the customer reviews are not so good ... only a 3.1 out of 5 for 38 reviews. Some of the poor ratings are that the unit just stopped working or a plastic housing part broke. You may have blown the motor. If it is still under warranty, and you have the receipt, you might consider shipping it back to Cuisinart ... but you pay for the shipping

are talking the blade inside the canister if so it unscrews from the clear handle and view area. otherwise if you mean the chuck below when the canister is lifted off that is held on by a fastener right in the middle dead center
