Question about Vitamix Blenders
Check the black driving clutch on the top of the motor that engages with the other clutch half on the base of the blender jug. The fault should be there, normally it will be the motor part.

I work for Black & Decker appliances and have more than 10 years experience with small appliances.
Anytime you smell something burning while using an appliance that isn't suppose to heat food, something is wrong. You shouldn't smell any foul odors emanating from a blender. The fact that it shuts off while pureeing something as simple as oatmeal indicates that particular blender is defective.
If you contact the manufacture they will be able to inform you as to your warranty eligibility.
I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

To take the blades off, grab the blades with a rag so you don't cut yourself, then grab the other end with a rag and turn CLOCKWISE - it's reverse threaded, so lefty loosey doesn't work here, it's lefty tighty, so turn to the right. Figured it out after an hour of mental anguish

make sure blade is pressed tightly onto shaft... should click into indent. if not then you need a new blade piece.- stripped

This is not really the solution it is just a better description of the problem that I am also having. This is a great blender however the part where the cup blades conect to the motor is made of plastic.
So what has happened here is that the motor is fine, the cup is fine only the plastic part that makes the motor turn the blades has worn down therefore rendering the blender useless. I would like to know where I could get this small part to change on my blender!!!
