If the motor runs in reverse to an Oster which uses counter clockwise thread then it follows that your thread should not be counter clockwise. If it comes loose when you turn it on surely the thread on the coupling must be faulty because according to your description the action of turning it on can only be to tighten the coupling. Most couplings with a thread that I have seen are counter clockwise so you will probably struggle to find another brand coupling to match.

I think it's the little washer in the blade assmbly since mine was worn to a sliver when it started doing what yours did. I replaced it with a similar washer and it worked for a week and then started spitting out metallic dust until it stopped working again. Could be the bearing seized. I would say yes a new blade assembly but I hadn't found one- since I have a 3600 which is very old-when my husband bought a used replacement container with a working blade assembly on ebay. $37 bucks, problem solved.

Track continuity inside with a multi meter. Pay attention to continuity of switches, they are a bit unreliable design.

Probably the bearings in the blade assembly are wrecked, replace the blade assembly with a new genuine part. Someone here has fitted aftermarket bearings but I do not know how much gear they required to do the job. Search onsite for solutions may reveal more

Sounds like it may need a new blade/bearing assembly or coupling or both.

Maybe you'd find your answer a little quicker if you posted your question somewhere besides the refrigerator forum.

If they do have a reset button it is normally underneath.

Either a transformer from 230v down to your 110v which will be roughly as big as your blender or a new motor and new pcb assy.

Remove beaker, remove big black rubber part from top of motor housing. At the back just below the gear you will see a small dob of white silicone, dig it out. That will reveal a gap to allow you to put an allen key in there. Inspect the top flange of the "gear" carefully, there is a nearly invisible arrow or marking in one place. Line that up with the gap at the back, that is where the allen screw is.Undo it and lift the gear off. Read the instructions that come with the new gear.

It sounds like the motor is overheating, how long will it run with no beaker on it? If still 45 seconds I'd say new motor time. If it runs for 5 or 10 minutes then I would say replace the blade and bearing assembly in the beaker.

On the Vitamix blender models we have here in NZ it is not possible to repack the bearings, you just purchase a new blade assembly complete with bearings and the driving clutch.
