The manual says - 'error messages of the applicance can be reset as follows:- (for your number) By turning the speed selector to Open Lid position then to Closed Lid position'    Hope this helps Karen.

No but you are lucky it isn't a 71 or 72 as that can only be fixed by Vowerk customer service. Maybe a consultant could help you out with more information as there doesn't seem to be a list of what number means what problem apart from 53 which is temperature sensor failure. Would be nice to have a list of what all the different numbers mean though.

I'm not 100% sure but 52 could be that there is moisture on the pins?  Sometimes the condensation from what your making dribbles down the sides, or if you have washed the machine and not dried the pins moisture gets through the plastic seal thing
I'll have a look through my notes and see if I can find anything, I seem to remember its a fairly common one

I'm revisiting this as I've just spoken to someone who has Error 52 coming up and needs help. Is anyone else having this problem?
Did we find any solutions please?

I had a problem not so long ago, and during the problem this code would come up intermittently. the thread on the blades had actually worn out. it showed up when I was trying to mince some meat. my blades weren't spinning for some things and it sounded a bit off. HO said it may be caused by overloading at some stage, but I know this is not so in this case. they replaced the blades under warranty. there is an explanation of codes possibily on this website or in the TM manual, but i don't think that 52 was there - I'd recommend calling your GL.

I am pretty sure 52 is moisture too. Might need to be looked at brazen if it is happening all the time??

I had this problem recently - error 52.  Our Tassie GL told me that it means moisture has gone down the prongs into the machine.  She told me to give it a good long dry out, but she also put in a report to HQ for me in case that didn't work.  After two days of sitting on a warm sunny window sill (I really wanted to hang it out on the clothesline) the water must have evaporated because it hasn't skipped a beat since.

To avoid it happening in the first place make sure that the blade seal is always in place, that the bowl isn't overfilled and that the prongs are always really dry.  I learnt the hard way.  It was a tough two days without my baby. :)

I'm glad to see this thread, I had an error 52 last night while mincing frozen small beef chunks and half way through doing a 2kg lot (in small amounts to prevent overloading) I had an error 52. Upon examining my bowl I saw I had moisture go down onto the prongs and around the base of the bowl.
I pulled it out, Dried it all off and I didn't have the problem again. I washed it afterwards and then had no issues making my smoothie this morning :)
