First thing you need to do is take it apart, which can be done pretty simply until you get to the actual blade and strainer. You will need to use the crescent tool, the one with two pins. Insert it in the blade, and turn it counterclockwise while holding the filter so it doesnt turn. All the parts should come apart easily.
i find the best way to clean these parts is using a small brush, not a sponge or rag.

Couple of things to look at
1 check the grating blade. Maybe clogged therefore need cleaning or need replacing due to bluntness
2 motor may be slipping true to overload. Place fruit in a little at a time
hope this helps
Wear leather gloves or double rubber gloves. Hold on right on top of
the sharp blades and turn it. You can also bend a 1/8 th inch diameter
thick wire, galvanized or anything metal and insert both ends on the
holes on the blades and turn it. Make sure you don't slip your hands on
the sharp blades.

You remove the top and back end. (you will need to put the silver handle down to do this) You then need the crescent tool to unhook the blade. After the blade comes out, the strainer and top level will come off with no further problem. If for some reason you do not have the crescent tool, if there is someone to hold the strainer still, you can use two screwdrivers in the holes of the blade and press down and turn with those instead. I JUST had to do this when I realized mine came without the stinking tool!
Assuming the motor is not totally burned yet, Make sure the blade is fiitted in its place right. Take the blade out again and fit it right along with the strainer. If it is not seated and fitted well, it will touch the upper cover and will not turn and will smell burnt.
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.
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.
