Sounds like you need to send your blender in to be serviced. It most likely is burned out-- hopefully your blender is less than 7 years old!

The incomparable Vita-Mix 7-Year Limited Warranty will keep your machine running like-new for seven full years from the date of purchase. If your Vita-Mix machine is currently under warranty and you require service, simply call the Customer Service Department at 1-800-848-2649 for assistance.

I had he same problem. In some cases the magnetic brushes on the blender wear down. You can replace these burshes for as little as $15. I found the parts supplier in Northern California but fogot their name.

Home this helps

No start at power on

did you or do you smell anything when it tries are any lights coming on with the power off try to spin in manually (with a fork or something) if it wont move motor seized better going off to get another one. if it moves freely (no resistance) the drive gear snapped a problem with plastic parts.
some resistance is what it whold be normal i would then go and check bases make sure there is no switch to the out let plug something else in and see if it works.

After starting the microwave, I get a "F-7" message on the display and it shuts down. What can I do to fix this? This is a whirlpool model # GH5184XPS-4.


what this error means indicate is as follow

The F-7 error code indicates that the water or oil (any liquid form) temperature sensor reading is out of range (below 23 degrees F or above 217 degrees F).

what you need to do to fix up your is to do general cleaning up on your oven both internal and external do this with care and allow it to dry up it self.

please when doing this you will have to put off any form of power supply connected to the oven .

thank you and thanks for using fixya.
