Lade agitator assembly, Retainer nut removal – Vita-Mix XTG012 User Manual
Retainer Nut Removal
• The retainer nut is easily removed using the
Retainer Nut Wrench. To order a Retainer Nut
Wrench please call your Vita-Mix distributor and
ask for Item #15596.
• To remove, turn the container upside. Using the
Retainer Nut Wrench turn the wrench counter-
clockwise to loosen the nut. Once loosened,
remove by hand.
• To replace, position retainer nut on top of blade
assembly and hand tighten. Then, using the
Retainer Nut Wrench, tighten clockwise until it
stops. If it is not tight enough, you will notice
increased container noise.
Blade Agitator Assembly. The blade is sharp, use
caution when handling. When inserting the blade assembly
through the container bottom, grip the blades with a soft
cloth, align the flat sides of the blade assembly with the
flat sides of the container. Place the retainer nut back on
the inserted blade assembly and tighten clockwise.
Do not force. Do not attempt to disassemble blade
Drive Spline. Mates with drive socket on the motor base
to turn the blade. NOTE: Removing and replacing your
container while the coupling is still rotating will strip the
drive spline “teeth.” (This part is NOT removable.)
Retainer Nut. Must be snug. Use the available retainer
nut wrench for best results. (Refer to the diagram below
to remove or replace.)
Never use a blade assembly with loose, damaged or knicked components.
