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.

Worked! Placing the base firmly on the counter made the motor run again. Whew!

My vitamix vitaprep 3 would power on (power switch was lighted up blue), but not run. I opened it and found one of the two white wires had jiggled off of it's connector, and was dangling against a metal heat sink. Plugging it in fixed the problem. Note that when disassembling, you need a 5/64 inch Allen wrench to remove the top sprocket piece, and that the Allen wrench nut is positioned such that the wrench has to be inserted about 20 degrees up from perpendicular. This wire jiggled loose after about 3 months of daily use.

The buttons on my vita-mix vm0115e wont work. We have been loosing one button at a time. Was going to see if there was a loose cable or something, but I can figure out how to get the base off.


WE do not have your model here in NZ but this is how you get into our models
Remove square rubber base beaker locates onto. Remove motor driving clutch. Remove 4 screws under rubber pad you have just taken off.

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.

Seems like motor has lost power


This sounds like the black rubber coupler has broken. The teeth often get knocked off. Have a look at the part shown in hte pictures here:
