Hi, I’m Chris Tavano for Tundra Restaurant
Supply. In today’s episode I’m going to show you
how to change the blade assembly in your Vitamix prep container. Pretty much what we have here is our retainer nut wrench by Vitamix; unique for its blade assembly replacements. As well as, we have a 64 ounce Vita prep container
here. First you’re going to take off the lid as
that’s not needed. Turn your container upside down. The nice thing with this wrench is, that hole is going to fit right over your
drive socket. It only fits one way and from there lefty
loosey. You want to be careful with those blades because they might be sharp still. I’m using a rag to grab a hold of that blade. That nut comes off and your blade assembly
should just pop right out. Go ahead and take that old one. We can discard
that. Now you have your empty container and your
nut. Now we’re going to get our new blade assembly. You’ll notice on the blade assembly there
are two flat sides. That’s going to correspond with the two
flat sides on the bottom of your container. Again, be careful just using a rag here. You could also use a cut glove, the Chain
Mail Steel Mesh. Pretty much that way you don’t create any
nicks on your fingers as you’re trying to replace this. In there it should just snap in place. Get our retaining nut. You can go ahead and screw that on finger
tight for the time being. Then get our retainer nut wrench by Vitamix
again. We’ll tighten this piece back into place. There you have it, replacing the blade assembly on your Vitamix
container. I’m Chris Tavano from Tundra Restaurant
Supply. That’s how you change your Vitamix blade
assembly. Join us again next time.
