I am having a similar issue. Vitamix Corp with rebuild your machine for $145, shipping not included. Call their service center for details. Did you try the machine again after it cooled. Maybe it was the high temp limit switch. Best of luck.

Can I upgrade motor on vitamix 4500...it wont make almond butter...


Contact Vitamix, find a service agent through them and have it looked at. You are only going to be able to get your motor (if you need one) through someone associated with Vitamix anyway.

Vitamix 5000 suddenly stopped working


As the override gizmo will not reset when cooled down you do know that it is faulty so replacing it is going to have to happen anyway if you are repairing it. It may be just that item that's gone bad or it may have been made bad by the motor drawing excessive current. The proper way to check current draw would be by running it through an ammeter. The last thing you want is a faulty motor, they cost a fortune.

Blade not spinning


My Vitamix 3600 plus has same problem. Result of detachment of rubber coupling between lower splined socket from blade shaft. This is a tough rubber molding that takes tremendous punishment through years of smoothies. Mine showed some rust on the bottom of the blade shaft, where it parted. I tried gluing back together with super glue and tried to eyeball it. Of course it was off by a few degrees. When I reassembled and turned it on, what a racket of vibration! But it held. Amazing. Obviously not good to go though. So I took assembly all apart and redid it, chucking the shaft and the lower nut in the lathe. This time, all true on axis. Glue held for about a week. Right now I am regluing, this time with epoxy. We'll see how it holds up. And meanwhilst, I'm researching replacement parts! I'm not too optimistic about the epoxy.
