Retainer Nut. Must be snug. Order the available

retainer nut wrench for best results. (Refer to the

diagram below to remove or replace.)

CAUTION: Do not remove blades unless absolutely necessary!

At times, it may be necessary to give your blades additional

cleaning. An easy-to-use blade assembly removal wrench

(Item #15596) may be purchased through your Vita-Mix

distributor. Never attempt to take the blade assembly itself

apart. This will void the warranty.

Turn the container upside down and grip firmly. Insert retainer

nut wrench in groove of retainer nut and rotate counterclock-

wise to loosen. Then grip blades with a cloth and remove

retainer nut by hand.

Replacing Blade Assembly

With the container upside down, grip blades with cloth, insert

into the container bottom and align with flat sides of container

opening. Place retainer nut on and hand tighten. Last, carefully

turn clockwise until secure, using wrench. Do not force. If it is
