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.
