Question about Jack Lalanne Power Juicer 250 Watts

5 Answers

Damaged parts around the screw peg

What should I do to solve my problem? This is the problem: The power juicer showed problems once disassembled (it came assembled). There screw peg is surrounded by one white and one orange rings, which serve as base for the adjustment of the blade. Well, they are damaged, the juicer makes a terrible noise when you try to operate it and it simply doesn't look right. I was only able to use the juicer once. I bought my juicer through MyGear and Amazon. I have sent several complaints about the problem but they never satisfied my request of replacing the damaged parts.

    I have taken off the entire screw plug base. Where do I get a replacement. I surely don't want to buy another juicer.



    Thanks, Gary Baura, freefallgb@aol.com

    the screw peg has broken off; it is too short now to use the filter screen and the blade- where do I get a replacement for the entire white plastic piece with the threaded screw peg on it??

    My power juicer has threads deteriorated to the point of being unusable. This happened over several uses. Basically, it is not possible to secure the cutting blade any longer, making the unit useless.



    If I could get a new set of threads, and a way to attach them, this could be fixed, but I am not sure how.

    I had the same problem, but I forgot about that orange colored tool that came with the apparatus. You need to stick that orange colored tool in the two little holes (next to the 3 screws) in the blade and spin counter clockwise while holding the rim of the blade.

    I have a problem with the base of the Jack Lalanne Classic juicer. The centre white ring of the base to which I attach the blade (by spinning the blade) has chipped at its tip and now I cannot attach the blade to the base. Please let me know how can I fix this problem. Appreciate all ur help.

    Thanks.

    We just got off the phone with customer service with the same problem This is our second Jack Lalanne juicer that ended with the same problem. We won't buy another and customer service had no solution for us other than a 49.99 motor. Good bye Jack Lalanne Juicer.

I have the same problem but no such luck in resolving through customer service for free as suggested. I was told unless the purchaser purchased the extended warranty, the standard was 60 days only.

They were able to provide a complete new base for a tax total of $49.99 inclusive of shipping. This is not such a bad deal relative to purchasing a new one.

If I were to buy one new today though, I think I would research an alternative product since this design is flawed and they obviously are not interested in solving it and producing happy customers.

I am certain there are others that produce a good machine and will stand behind their designs. My internet research revealed many people suffering from this same problem.

I had the customer service rep review this page and thread with me while on the phone and he did not seem to care a whole lot. He further stated that the threaded white piece is not available as a replacement part; only the entire base as priced above.

So anyone researching to purchase a Jack Lalanne power juicer take note of how they stand behind faulty or flawed designs. They are not fully commited to the "outstanding last a life time product" like their marketing implys.

Same problem here. Bought a donor unit at a thrift store for $9.00, got it home and found it also has a broken screw peg. Wasted another $9.00 on this thing. The part is probably a $5.00 part although it is difficult to replace. Bad design, no replacement parts available equals a disposable appliance. 21st century economy here, filling our landfills with Chinese junk. Stay away from this pile of garbage.

I borrowed the Jack Lalanne power juicer, From a friend who said they only used it once. The second time I used it the screw peg fell apart. I didn't want to give it back broken. I called this number I found on the net, Phone: 1 (973) 287-5150 They said I would have to buy the whole base for $49.99. http://www.powerjuicer.com/power-juicer-customer-care.php
So I have glued the screw parts that I found with Goop the best glue I've found for this type of thing. I'm not sure how long it will hold but so far so good. I'm going to look for a Jack Lalanne power juicer for parts. By the way this juicer is so old they discontinued it and the part number no longer show up on there computer for parts. If anyone want to sale a base with a good screw peg for parts I'm in the market for one. Thanks.

How do you disassemble the jack lalane juicer?


You use your Orange cresent tool with the 2 metal thingies on the bottom of it. Take off the top of the juicer. Then get the tool and then stick the tool where you see the two holes. Hold down the spinning like grater, and use the tool to turn counter clock wise. Once you do that the Middle part will come off.

No crescent tool included with purchase to remove the blade


Make sure the Juicer is unpluged. What you need is the cresent tool or two metal objects to place in the two holes opposite each other and press down the metal objects in the holes while turning counter clockwise. It kind of acts like a lock and key system.

All in the name of health I said a lot of bad words, except that I know I never toss out my owner's manuals. I finally went to find my juicer model number when I noticed that the box said that it came with a recipe book (!) so I ran to my recipe book cupboard and sure enough the owner's manual was with it. (Maybe yours is there..)
Anyway, the key is this "crescent wrench." Doesn't look like a normal crescent wrench at all, but the handle is shaped like a crescent moon. It has two little pegs that stick out and fit into the two holes in the top of the blade, Then it twisted counter-clock-wise, the blade **still screwed into the piece underneath it, then it easily comes out, as do the other parts inside. It was just that rotten little "wrench" piece WHICH, I might add, is unique to my model. If you download the other owner's manual that's online, it doesn't mention any such tool for their model. (sorry, I can't find a model # for mine. There is a "V3 52803" on the back of the manual if that's the model.) Good luck. Hope this helps you. Happy, and healthy juicing.
p.s. in the end...it's all about Jesus.

There is the metal thingy that slides up over the upper unit.  Pull it towards your firmly.  Once it's down you can lift off the top housing.  Then you'll see the blade.  You need that little orange crescent tool to fit into the two holes in the blade.  Turning it will loosen.  Then the blade screws off (righty tighty, lefty loosey).  It's just a matter of taking off the parts then and washing them.  The screen thingy is easiest to wash from the outside with a nice scubby pad.  Reassembles same way.

Cant grt it apart to clean


Take off the top part of the juicer that has the chute. You will see the blade and basket. The blade appears to be attached to the basket with three small screws but is actually screwed onto the basket by a large screw that protrudes out of the basket underneath the blade. So the trick is to unscrew the blade, turning it to the left by using maybe a small screwdriver that you will have to put into one of the two small holes that are on the blade surface and pushing the blade to the left. This should loosen the blade and then you can just unscrew the blade off the basket. Once you get that blade off, the rest of the juicer comes apart. The newer models come with a little tool with a couple of arms that go down into those holes and loosen the top. Good luck.

I seem to be able to put the crescent too in but the blade just spins and doesn't seem to be connecting to anything to pull it out. Talk about frustration!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
