Question about Acme 6001 Juice Extractor

The blade will not spin when the top piece is secure, & I the inside will not come out to clean

I have no instruction book for this juicer and the motor seems to be working fine, when the top piece is not on. When the top piece is on, the motor hums, but the blade does not spin. After removing the top piece, I can not lift the inside pieces (blade, inner 'basket') out. I am not sure if it is defected or if I am just doing something wrong. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you

This is a little too late. Looks like feed
shoot is contacting the blade and preventing
it from turning. On top of that the basket
has probably cut into the hex fitting on
top of the motor shaft. That's why you can't
remove it. It can be repaired and adjusted
but may cost you.

There is a roll pin under the flywheel, I you can get the basket off then you pull up on the flywheel , It is the last part before the motor housing. Once you have that off I think you may find that pin is sheared off. It is a common automotive or bearing house part. push out the old and push in the new pin and away you go. The new pin shoud protrude about 3?16 " on both sides of the pin. I hope this helps.

Juicer stopped working

It sounds like a warranty issue if you bought it new. I checked the internet and this seems to be a budget juicer. I had the Jack La Lane model and fortunately the base unit (motor) was replaceable, however I concluded it was such because it wasn't heavy duty and they made money off it failing after a year. These are my personal feelings that you should look at a better model and of course you will pay more for the quality.

My jack Lalanne juicer just suddenly stopped working.

Mine stopped working after only a few uses. It turns out that the safety microswitch button wasn't being depressed. The little button on the bottom of the pulp collector had broken off. (Image #1) I put a 1/4 inch piece of a shishkabob skewer in the hole before putting the pulp collector on. (image #2) It works fine now. It's still safe. The motor will not start unless the pulp collector (receptacle) is in place and locked in. Be sure to unplug the machine before doing this. 3717db6c-91bc-41ee-b452-1ed06578f280.jpgjack-lalanne-juicer-just-rgzqoe2q2f3mnxiw25vk3yhi-4-2.jpg

I do not know how to clean and take it apart

I did some research here on Fixya and this is what another expert had to say.........pull the metal bar forward and down to open up into the blade compartment. your juicer should have come with a handle type key wrench thing that you stick on top of the blades into holes to unscrew blade holder, while unscrewing that hold the blade still.
Hope this helps wishes.

Jack lalane juicer

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's all about Jesus.

Champion Juicer stopped working

Hi I had the same problem yesterday and emailed Champion Juicer about the problem here's their reply below, his suggestion worked. Hello Duane, Your machine is equipped with a magnetic start system which will only allow the machine to start when you have the screenholder all the way in place just as you would have it to start juicing. If you do not have any parts on the machine it will not start. Please assemble it again and give it a try. If it still wont start call me at 209-369-2154 for further assistance. Thank you Carl
