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

Re: The blade will not spin when the top piece is secure,...
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.
Re: The blade will not spin when the top piece is secure,...
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.

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 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 you......best wishes.
LIFT UP AND SLIDE COVER RETAINING BRACKET OFF COVER, REMOVE COVER AND PLASTIC NUT THAT HOLDS DOWN BLADE. ALL PIECES JUST LIFT OUT, BUT KEEP TRACK OF THE ORDER THEY ARE REMOVED IN TO REINSTALL CORRECTLY.
Hello, First, make sure the screw on clamp that holds the blade down is centering the blade correctly. Also make sure it tightens down firmly against the blade. Wiggle the blade to ensure it is mounted securely. If this doesn' fix it try your old blade again. If your old blade works you may have a bad, unbalance blade but I would suspect he screw on clamp knob may be somewhat worn and not securing the blade causing it to run "out of round" when a piece of vegetable pushes on it. If everything looks good with both blades and the blade securing knob it could be a worn bearing on the juicer. Try wiggling the motor shaft and see if there is any play in it. I have an ACME 6001 that is quite old so I wouldn't suspect the bearings are going. One other thing, does the bowl take 3 to 5 minutes to stop spinning when you shut off the motor? If it does then the shaft and bearing are probalby ok
Take the top part of the juicer off so that just the shreder is visable. On top of the shreder are 2 small holes on either side of the blades. a handle devise with 2 pins came with the juicer. put the tool pins into the holes and twist counter clock wise. The blade will come off then rest is simple and the unit can be disassembled. If you have lost the tool disassembly will be more dificult but can still be accomplished using a cloth on top of the blades and twiting counter clock wise. Careful though or you will cut yourself
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.
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.
