I had the same problem. Mine completely stopped working after I put a small carrot in there. Can't find a customer service number for them. I did find an email for Antoinette Ramos. firstname.lastname@example.org She emailed me back and said they would send me a new Juicer. Almost 20 days later, I have not received it and I can't get a reply email from her at all. I just looked at the email and her phone number is on there, so I will be calling. Here it is incase you still need it.
Is this a new juicer, have you used this before without the circuit failure? Most circuits in the house will be are 15 amp breakers. If the appliance has a high amp load then this can cause it to switch the breaker turning on or off.(due to to voltage spikes) I have a waffle iron that does the same thing if my refrigerator cycles while the iron is on. There are a few things that could cause this. But before anything else I would try the juicer in a different plug that is on a different circuit, like the living room for example. If that works well then I would start looking at you may need to replace the circuit breaker, they do go bad.
If there is not a flaw in the product itself it could be a problem with assembly or that the locking bar is not locked in place properly. The juicer will not operate if the locking bar does not click in to place in to the grooves on both sides of the lid.
Jack LaLanne has several HowTo videos posted that would be worth reviewing:
If you are unable to lock the locking bar in place it suggests that some other component has not been installed in the correct position. Review the assembly instructions to make sure all pieces are properly positioned.
Unscrew the bottom cover to expose the electrical cord. Check voltage if coming from the electrical cord by using a tester.If there is power, look for a a thermistor or a fuse and test if it is broken.
Do you have the manual for you juicer? If so, see if there is anything listed in the back about trouble shooting and where to get help. If you don't could you write in with some more information about the make and model of your machine and I will look for some links to sites which may be able to provide assistance. Sorry not to be more helpful, but I could do with a bit more information.
Many times when juicing very fibourous produce the bowl(basket) can get stuck and you can loosen it by gently tapping on the pulp spout or juice spout to the counter clockwise motion(right), this will loosen the bowl.
The metal handlebar needs to be snapped up into position on top of the juicer beside the feeding chute before the button will turn. It's a safety feature. The clear plastic lid goes on over it.
Hope this helps!
