Question about Jack Lalanne Power Juicer 250 Watts

2 Answers

Why won't the cutter spin even though the motor is on?

I have ensured all parts are properly assembled; however, the cutter will not spin although the motor is comes on. I just purchased this juicer and this is my first time using it. It started to cut very briefly, then stopped. I have disassembled and reassembled the parts several times. Each time the motor will operate but the cutter will not spin.

Re: Why won't the cutter spin even though the motor is...

Do you have the tool, or can you make up one, to put in the two small holes on the cutter blade ?
When I first tried to juice stuff, the blade didn't turn at all. The motor came on, then it shut itself off, I guess to cool down.
I didn't know how to disassemble the thing, so when I read that you need the tool, and turn counter-clockwise, I tried it. Something gave, but I still couldn't get the blade off ( I wasn't holding the rim of the screen). I decided to try juicing again, this time it worked! I think I must have just unjammed something.

Why is the pulp warm/hot? the screen is clean...

It is caused by friction as the cutter assembly squeezes the pulp out. The tighter the squeeze the more juice that is extracted. Be sure to oil the shaft with only olive or coconut oil as these oils will withstand the high temperature without getting gummy and making the cutter stick to the shaft..

Problems dismantling champion juicer

It's like a suction is created. I have had this happen. I managed to get mine off with a blunt knife to give a bit of leverage (not ideal I know to put a knife near an expensive piece of equipment but it worked for me) Once you have the blade cutter off I suggest oiling the metal prong that it sits on with something like vegetable oil or olive fairly regularly to avoid this happening again.

The blade wont spin even though the mothor is on. I can hear the motor engage but the blade will not has not been used in awhile.

Have you ensured that the blade is securely screwed into the drive motor? Using the two-pronged tool that came with the juicer (or, if you've misplaced it, a DIY solution like two small screwdrivers), make sure that the blade unit is screwed clockwise onto the drive motor. There should be two holes on the inside of the blade unit, at the bottom of the "bowl." That's where you remove the blade unit for cleaning and reattach and tighten it.

I need a cutter blade parts no 015180. Can I pay for it on the net?

You can buy it from Waring or Omega, same blade.
Or, just google Acme juicer parts. $20 to $30. Look
out though, found new blade increases vibration. You
can also sharpen old blade by slightly drilling into
each burr on the blade with a small drill bit. Been
using the same blade for several years.

It won't "go" It seems to be assembled the same as always and I have oranges in the tube and the motor goes on and hums but the blade and sieve don't spin

mcdevito75 here, The Oranges must be in the tube so tight it"s keeping the blades from spinning, turn juicer off nplug from wall, remove cover and unclog the oranges. Reassemble and feed oranges slowy into the juicer.

Don't know how to set up Jack lalanne power juicer

First, check that the switch is in the on position. Then, check that all parts are assembled properly. The unit has a built-in safety device that will not let the motor turn on if not assembled properly. The Power Juicer also has a built-in Thermal Cut Off Safety Switch. If the machine was running, then shut down due to accidental overheating, then there is a 10 minute cooling time before the machine will restart. This helps to protect the motor from seizing.

Acme juicer vibrating so much.

I've had one for 21 years and when I replaced the blade the same thing happened.
The blade is not supposed to be held firmly in place so it can slip intentionally to
minimize vibration. If you bought the juicer new, think back, and I believe you will
remember the vibration problem. I seems with a worn blade they vibrate less. The
motor is very durable and uses roller bearings like on a skate board. I went back
to the old blade, which I sharpen with a drill using a small bit.
