The blade, called a mixing knife, in a TM5 is engineered with a safety break point outside the bowl, so the pressure required to break the knife will break the shaft before the blade. This is a safety feature so the blades in a TM5 do not have any pieces that could break free. If the motor is moving but the blades are not, a new mixing knife is needed, call Customer Service at 888-867-9375 for next steps.
