Not for the motor - perhaps for circuit breaker. If you overheated the motor by blending a liquid with excessive viscosity you may have burned out the unit. Or maybe the motor overheated and a protective thermistor has shut off power to allow it to cool off. Give it another hour or so before making any conclusions.
I called blendtec and got it figured out. The unit was in some locked mode and so I had to push the buttons 4-1-3 in that order to get it to work. The confusing thing is there's two invisible buttons between 1,2 and low, high. So the buttons go 1, 2, 3(invisible), 4(invisible), 5 (low), 6 (high). It mentions these options in the manual on page 18.
Replace the blade assembly immediately. They are available from Cuisinart's website. Sugars and other stuff can gum up the blade assembly over time, so it will periodically need to be replaced. A quick and easy way to keep the blade assembly clean and working longer is to put water and a drop of dishwashing soap in the blender after use and run the blender at low speed for 15-20 seconds - an old Osterizer trick.
sounds like a shear pin either on the motor or the blade assembly. If you put the blender on low without the cannister on top touch the gear on top of the unit and see if the gear slips or stops. Use a pencil or something..Not your finger. If it stoops then the pin is broken at the motor. If not, it is broken at the blade unit.
When the lights are flashing, this does indicate that an electronic part has failed. This blender is no longer manufactured, so finding replacement parts for it may not come easily. Repair centers are available. I would recommend calling Kitchenaid Customer Service to see what they can recommend for you.
First ensure that the blender jar is placed on the right orientation, othherwise the blender wont start. Remove the Jar and place it on the other way if you are not sure.
If you still get the click, try leaving the blender power cord unplugged for a while. The click means that the blender has power, but the motor is not starting. If it still does not work , and the jar is in the correct way and you did the above, then the blender is faulty, probably a faulty motor, or a broken wiring.
Do you hear it hum when you try to turn it on?
If yes, remove the cup. Try again... if the motor runs, try moving the blade by hand. If it is seized, remove it and clean it to free it again.
If not, possibly blown windings on the motor or divider circuit (which supplies different voltages to the motor for the different blend speeds). Repair will be required in either case.
