      As of 1íst of November 2017 I have acquired from HLK Trade SRL a kitchen robot Thermomix model TM5 with Chip RO, having a guarantee period of 2 years.
-       As of 3rd of January 2018 I realized that the robot did not start anymore, showing a message error C34.
-       I mention that I am the owner of a same brand robot Thermomix TM31, acquired from the same company as of 16.10.2013. I have successfully used Thermomix TM31 for 4 years, the robot is still functional, but I wanted the upgraded version.
-       Thermomix TM31 and Thermomix model TM5 have the same closing system, and I have used both robots in the same way.
-       I highlight the fact that I am the only user of the acquired robot: Thermomix model TM5, and I have 4 years of experience using this type of robot.
-       As of 11íh of January I have been announced by a Thermomix Romania technician, that I have wrongly used the robot, and there are liquids which have touched the motor of the robot, so the guarantee does not cover the reparation price.

-       Considering the fact that both models Thermomix TM31 and Thermomix model TM5 have the same closing system, they cannot be used in case they are not properly closed, and I have successfully used Thermomix TM31  for 4 years (the robot has never been broken), I used Thermomix TM5 in the same way as the previous model, without having any particular incident, I am absolutely convinced that the robot did not break because of me.

I am absolutely sure that I did not use wrongly the robot, so how can it be possible to have liquids in the motor? Have there been cases like mine?
Thanks for your answer.

Hi Ligia. As we are not affiliated with the makers of the Thermomix we cannot give you any advice on your problem.  I would suggest you contact Vorwerk direct through this link if you are not getting any satisfaction from the service department in your country.
Good luck, it is a worry for you.
