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.

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.

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.

Cutter is stuck onto shaft, how can I remove it?

First, check to see if there is a set screw in the side of the cutter which screws against the shaft.

If no set screw, a gear puller would probably do the trick. There are many types -- you might luck out and find one which will fit on your first shopping trip.

How to take apart

I hate to admit my wife was right:  "Don't get it.  It's too cheap.  You get what you pay for!"  Gaads, I hate to admit this THIS time, she might have been right!  I am going back to play with it to see if I can figure it out!  There's gotta be a way to clean it!  Otherwise, it is just a salmonella breeding laboratory!  
Oh-oh!  I just found it - (after I cut one of my fingers on the cutters looking for access!)  Here is the answer:

1.  Do NOT turn the basket/cutter part.  
Just because there is a knurl on the cutter basket doesn't mean we put our hands on it -- yet!
2.  Turn the entire TOP in which the cutters nest approximately 60-90 degrees CLOCKWISE.
3.  Lift the entire plastic assembly straight up.
4.  The cutter basket will now separate from the plastic top.

Good luck -- and don't cut yourself, unless the taste of your own blood excites you!

This is a response I received from Champion Juicer- I am amazed at how fast they responded. His solution is below- Hello Cathy

To remove the cutter from the Champion Juicer motor shaft, take two small
screwdrivers and place them between the back side of the cutter and the
stainless steel portion of the hub. Apply pressure on the screwdrivers and
the cutter should begin to slide forward. When driving the screwdrivers in,
make sure they are spaced far enough apart so they don't damage the motor
shaft which is located in the center of the cutter. If the cutter does not
come off, leave the screwdrivers in place and insert something under the
rear of the Champion Juicer (like a book) to elevate the rear of the
machine, thus allowing the cutter to tilt forward. Apply penetrating oil
between the screwdrivers. Because the cutter is now angles forward the oil
will run inside the cutter. If this is done for several days the cutter will
come off by applying more pressure to the screwdrivers. By merely pulling on
the screwdrivers you will have to use a plastic hammer and slowly tap on
each of the screwdrivers until the cutter breaks free. Tap one screwdriver,
and when it is snug, tap on the other screwdriver until the cutter breaks
free. When this is done there will always be one screwdriver coming loose
and falling out of the slot. Do not rush the removal process; give the oil a
chance to work. It is possible the hub and cutter will be damaged during the
removal process. Contact us for current replacement prices. Once the cutter
has been removed you should polish the motor shaft to remove any film or
burrs which may have developed. If you contact us with your address we will
mail you a piece of fine emory cloth to polish the motor shaft  at no
charge. You should always apply a slight film of olive oil on the motor
shaft to prevent sticking of the cutter. Do not use other oils, as they tend
to break down from the heat during operation of the juicer. If you wish to
speak to a repair person, please call our company weekdays @ 209-369-2154
between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Pacific Standard Time. We would be happy to
offer any assistance you may need.

Thank you
