It's like a suction is created. I have had this happen. I managed to get mine off with a blunt knife to give a bit of leverage (not ideal I know to put a knife near an expensive piece of equipment but it worked for me) Once you have the blade cutter off I suggest oiling the metal prong that it sits on with something like vegetable oil or olive fairly regularly to avoid this happening again.
Unplug your Acme 6001 Juicer. Carry it to a countertop near your kitchen sink.
Remove the pusher and cover, and set the pieces in a sink. Unscrew the clutch, remove it and set it in the sink. Remove the cutter blade, strainer basket and juice bowl, and place the pieces in the sink.
Discard or remove and store any pulp that you find in the strainer basket. When you're finished, rinse the remaining fruit and vegetable pulp and juice from the pieces under cool, running water. Dislodge hard-to-remove pulp from the cutter blade and strainer basket with a soft-bristled brush or with a stiff-bristled brush if necessary.
Wash the pieces in a dishwasher or by hand. To wash in a dishwasher, place the stainless steel pieces in the lower rack and the plastic in the top rack and wash on a normal cycle with other kitchenware. To wash by hand, fill the sink with warm water and a few drops of mild detergent and wash with a lint-free microfiber cloth.
Run the pieces through the rinse cycle in your dishwasher or rinse under running tap water by hand. Air or wipe dry the pieces.
Wipe the base with a slightly soapy cloth. Rinse with a damp cloth and wipe dry. Reassemble your juicer by returning the pieces to the base in reverse order.
I didn't have the appropriate "crescent tool" either, so I took a small screwdriver and while holding on to the outer orange sieve, I rotated the inner piece counter clockwise and it loosened so that I could fully disassemble the machine.
This is a response I received from Champion Juicer- I am amazed at how fast they responded. His solution is below-
To remove the cutter from the Champion Juicer motor shaft, take two small screwdrivers and place them between the back side of the cutter and the stainless steel portion of the hub. Apply pressure on the screwdrivers and the cutter should begin to slide forward. When driving the screwdrivers in, make sure they are spaced far enough apart so they don't damage the motor shaft which is located in the center of the cutter. If the cutter does not come off, leave the screwdrivers in place and insert something under the rear of the Champion Juicer (like a book) to elevate the rear of the machine, thus allowing the cutter to tilt forward. Apply penetrating oil between the screwdrivers. Because the cutter is now angles forward the oil will run inside the cutter. If this is done for several days the cutter will come off by applying more pressure to the screwdrivers. By merely pulling on the screwdrivers you will have to use a plastic hammer and slowly tap on each of the screwdrivers until the cutter breaks free. Tap one screwdriver, and when it is snug, tap on the other screwdriver until the cutter breaks free. When this is done there will always be one screwdriver coming loose and falling out of the slot. Do not rush the removal process; give the oil a chance to work. It is possible the hub and cutter will be damaged during the removal process. Contact us for current replacement prices. Once the cutter has been removed you should polish the motor shaft to remove any film or burrs which may have developed. If you contact us with your address we will mail you a piece of fine emory cloth to polish the motor shaft at no charge. You should always apply a slight film of olive oil on the motor shaft to prevent sticking of the cutter. Do not use other oils, as they tend to break down from the heat during operation of the juicer.
