Does anyone know how to fix this?

Ohh by the way I have a RBK 5K blade
This is common and very easy to fix. Remove the blade, put a strip of tape over the end you insert into the shaft, add some glue...some heat and put the blade back in. If you did it right, it should be a nice snug fit. If you did it wrong the tape comes off and you left with a glue covered mess.
