There's a reason that Vitamix is your commercial blender of choice. Undoubtedly one of the premiere commercial blender brands on the market today, your Vitamix is probably used for everything from beverages to food preparation (and everything in between). That's why we carry and stock a large assortment of commercial Vitamix parts and accompanying Vitamix parts diagrams to help you get up and running again. The best part about shopping for Vitamix parts yourself? You can do most of the replacements yourself, so no need to spend your extra change on a service technician call.
One of the most common Vitamix parts you'll be replacing is the drive socket. What is a drive socket? The drive socket on your Vitamix acts as a fail-safe mechanism that protects you and the motor in case the blade assembly becomes blocked. These drive sockets also help to reduce noise, which is ideal for blenders behind the bar or those in open kitchen concepts. Over time, you may recognize signs of wear on your drive socket. Also take caution that you don't inadvertently cause premature wear of the drive socket by rocking the container while blending or removing the container before the motor has stopped spinning.
The next Vitamix part likely to fail? The blade assembly. Depending on your level of use, you may find yourself needing to replace the blade assembly sooner than later. Over time blade assemblies become dull, and your Vitamix blender isn't as efficient as it once was. Luckily, you can easily procure a new blade assembly for your blender, and switching them out is easy too (even easier if you secure a Vitamix Retainer Wrench). Check out our video to show you how.
Finally, don't forget your Vitamix container. Regularly inspect your container for signs of wear or cracking. Containers may become damaged if accidentally dropped on the floor, or they can just become worn with regular use. Also take care to avoid cleaning the container with a sanitizer strength that's too strong; an overly strong sanitizer may cause hairline cracks, brittle containers, damage to your blade assembly and more.
Your Vitamix is a powerhouse in your commercial kitchen, but it does require care. Save yourself a chunk of change by ordering a new Vitamix part instead of a new piece of equipment. It's easy to replace, and it looks better on your bottom line. Shop our selection of commercial Vitamix parts today!
