We just had this problem. Called VitaMix and they talked about resetting the thermal protection switch inside. They suggested lifting the base down firmly, but gently, on the counter to help the internal switch reset. I did it while they were on the phone and, sure enough, the machine came back to life. Hope this helps.

Is it getting hot when you operate it? If you run a mixer for a long
time, the motor will get very warm. On the older units, when the
motor overheats, the various parts of the motor and its container
may start to melt. Mixer motors are not designed to last forever and
a replacement motor may be available from the manufacturer.
Another way is to purchase another similar mixer as you can on
eBay and swap parts.
