Seems like everytime I use the Nutribullet and open it up, the rubber o-ring inside falls into my blast.  Any suggestions on how to stop this from happening?

I have this same question. Is it normal for the rubber ring to fall out every time u take the top off?? I assume that if I just leave it off (to keep from further annoyance) it may cause it to leak. What to do?? Honestly, had I known abt this issue I would not have purchased the Nutribullet.
My daughter had two of them become chopped up in her blast. She got a new extractor blade to fix it.
I tried running it under water first to get the o-ring wet before using it this morning. Hoping that it wouldn't stick to the cup and fall out. It worked this morning fine....

Get a new extractor blade.
I've had my NB for about a week and one of my O rings is already come loose. It did not leak but I had a harder time since it wouldn't click 'on'..only pulse. I was confused about this until I opened my blast and noticed the ring problem. Wondered if that's why it misbehaved like that when I made my drink. Am a bit sad that the ring is so temperamental. : /
THE O RING MAY FALL OUT SOMETIMES, THE THING I FOUND IS THAT YOU NEED TO TAKE IT OUT EACH TIME AND CLEAN EVERYTHING AND THEN WET IT BEFORE EACH USE.. DOING THIS I HAVE HAD NO MORE PROBLEMS WITH THE O RING .. IF YOU ARE ONE NOT TAKING THE RING OUT AND CLEANING IT AND WHERE IT SETS IN THE CUTTER HEAD… YOU.. MAY BE SURPRISED AT HOW DIRTY IT CAN GET IN THERE… JUST MAKES COMMON SENSE
I read on the blog that some of these are not supposed to have the o-ring removed at all. Very confusing.
The o-ring is the seal between the cup lip and the extractor blade housing so if it is tightened properly, then you shouldn't get much of anything under it when using it. I personally haven't noticed anything under the o-ring when cleaning the extractor blade.... I clean it immediately after using it. Wetting it doesn't always do the trick... I found this morning that putting a little non-stick spray on the o-ring doesn't allow it to bind or stick to the plastic cup and probably solves my initial problem... Why buy a new blade when it is less than 6 months old???
On some of the Nutribullet extractor blades, the o ring was removable and dirt and gunk collected under it. I had two like that and my daughter did also and they were purchased back in September. The latest blades, the gasket is glued in and non removable so that is not a problem. If the gasket is coming out, you need to get a new blade.
We bought the silver nut rivulet and were so happy with it, we bought the blue (so we could prepare two blasts at once...however the blue leaks! When comparing the two machines, we noticed out silver nut rivulet has a rubber ring where the cup rim meets the blade housing and the blue nut rivulet didn't have a ring at all...should there be a rubber ring in both? If so, how do I get this corrected????
All, I've had the same problem and I've had mine for 2 weeks. I have opened a post on this forum as well from service and no reply as of yet from support. UGH! You can find my article here: http://www.nutriliving.com/forums/topics/rubber-washer-came-out-blasterblade-area
