You will need to source them from a bearing supply company as Vitamix only supply the bearings as a complete unit with the blade assembled. Once you have the bearings out take the sample with you to the bearing supply company for correct identification.

Sounds like you have wrecked something, you just place the beaker on the motor base, no turning required.

Put your meter across the 2 disconnected potentiometer wires and turn the knob and see if you get the sort of variation you expect to see. The pots do give a little bit of trouble and aren't worth very much, I'd be inclined to throw one in anyway, the very last thing you want it to be is the PCB, they are not cheap.

The wrench hole is hidden firstly by the large rubber part that holds the beaker and secondly by a blob of clear silicone that covers the hole for your allen key

No because there is very little metal in contact with the food other than the stainless steel blade and the stainless fitting below it neither of which should be leaching anything into the food.
Have a close look at the blade and the fitting under it for any signs of corrosion.

You should write (not an email) to the Company about this issue and maybe they have some explanation because these are expensive machines.

Go here to download it as a PDf file. The 5200 is what I think is most similar to yours.

I have a large set of slip joint pliers that I place jaws up in the vice and engage into that large nut up the base of the jar. Here is a link to a photo on an auction site local to me to show what the pliers I use look like, it's the New Zealand eBay equivalent site.

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?

Your canister/pitcher is leaking?
It is probably blade assembly & bad seal.
You will need a special wrench to correct this.
