| Expensive fix outside warranty November 10, 2012
Reviewer: A Customer from Southern California
2006 Model 5000 variable speed control went out in 2012. There was only a 3 year warranty in 2006. Only offers from Vitamix were to do a whole machine fix for $150 or give me a $100 credit for a new machine. I opted for a DIY fix for $10 thanks to a guy who posted the part number and the step by step repair procedure on the internet.
