Question about Vitamix Super 5000 Work Top Blender

I was blending a slightly thick batter and the Vitamix just stopped! Will the machine start after awhile? Do you think it has just overheated? How do I find out ? My old Vitamix had a reset button at the back,this one doesn't,please Help!

Well it might just be over heated, let it cool for approx 20 minutes then restart if it doesn't then u may try switching electrical outlets, if that doesn't work then it needs to be replaced. I hope that this helps, if not please let me know and i will try and help you out as much as i can.

    I have left my VM off for over an hour - still won't turn on. Any suggestions? It is a refurb, and I have only had it a couple months.

When i turn it onto high speed it willl fuse istanlty. (Even with somthing easy to blend like a smoothie) .Any ideas what could be wrong?


I would suspect a motor fault, most likely an insulation problem in the armature or the fields. Contact Vitamix for your local authorised service agent. Unless it has been assembled incorrectly it should not be one of the internal wires as they are supposed to be secured and correctly routed during assembly.

You have burnt up the machine. It will no longer function and would be unsafe to try further. Replace it.

I have this model and a vita prep 3. Both turn off when tasked with heavy blending. Is there anyway to increase their blending torque capacity? They used to be much better. They are not old machines.


The motors even if they not old blenders if they have work with too much load for along time then they have been overheated and thus they will trip overheat safety more sensitive. So now actualy you have less blending torque as you have describe. So now their is much posibilty if you continue to work it the same way you will finally burn the motor rotor so the damage will be grait.
So now not only you can not get more torque but you should try to avoid very heavy use in order to have them work for a longer time.
When you use with a lot of ice cubes try to cover them with a lot of liquids and always use the pulse mode to start ant the continues rotation.
Good luck

Vita-mix Blender will not power on


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.

Vita-Mix 5000 blender shuts off under heavy blending loads.


first check the blades on the container thay should turn easy by hand if not thats your problem , you will need blades . blades turn easy ? you will need to replace the motor . the temp /overload has changed and is tripping to easy . this is common with people that use there vitamix for tough chores a lot . a lesser blender would just burn up a motor in a puff of smoke .a vitamix dies this way . in the end its the same you will need a motor
