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.

What has worked very well for me in the past in similar situations (not with kitchen appliances but any older item needing a part) is find people selling the item or parts for the item on eBay, and then messaging them asking if they have a source for whatever it is I am looking for.
Almost always this leads to what I need, whether it is for a camera or an old watch or a vintage computer or whatever.
Messaging through eBay is easy, fast, and free.
Simply type Vitamix 4000 in the Search box, and get the listings displayed, and then click on Contact Seller.
eBay will send the message, and notify you when there is a reply.

It's probably fine, those motors are very strong. I'd be looking for something like a wire off or broken first. A motor does not often fail without a lot of heat and burning smell.

As the override gizmo will not reset when cooled down you do know that it is faulty so replacing it is going to have to happen anyway if you are repairing it. It may be just that item that's gone bad or it may have been made bad by the motor drawing excessive current. The proper way to check current draw would be by running it through an ammeter. The last thing you want is a faulty motor, they cost a fortune.

Some models had a weakness with the variable resistance in the rotary switch but your description sounds more like the main PCB or even the motor both of which are very expensive parts to replace.

You will need to source them from a bearing supply company as Vitamix only supply the bearings as a complete unit with the blade assembled. Once you have the bearings out take the sample with you to the bearing supply company for correct identification.

Sounds like you have wrecked something, you just place the beaker on the motor base, no turning required.

motor problem ( brushes worn out or armature damage)
junk it and get a new one as parts if available and repair costs will exceed the price of a new unit

Vitamix has a 5-year warranty. Go to their website and they will send you an empty box with a UPS pick up tag and fix it.

Put your meter across the 2 disconnected potentiometer wires and turn the knob and see if you get the sort of variation you expect to see. The pots do give a little bit of trouble and aren't worth very much, I'd be inclined to throw one in anyway, the very last thing you want it to be is the PCB, they are not cheap.

The wrench hole is hidden firstly by the large rubber part that holds the beaker and secondly by a blob of clear silicone that covers the hole for your allen key

The motor is likely defective.

there is a wrench (by Vitamix) for under $10. you can get it from amazon. it makes the job of removing a blade assembly much easier.

The speed control usually is by electronics. The speed control switch will merely be telling the circuitry what speed is required but if the circuitry is faulty nothing will happen.
