Question about Acme 6001 Juice Extractor
I've had the juicer for 10years, never had a problem. In December, 2008, I replaced the blade and it now becomes unbalanced when I juice the first item. I run apples, carrots, and beets through it. It is not unbalanced while it is empty, but becomes so when I add a vegetable. It then gets noisy, and begins to move all over the counter top.
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
Good luck with it...gary
