Wheatgrass juicing problems

I'm using my Omega 8005 Juicer for the first time. When I put wheatgrass into the hopper, using the reccommended parts, wet pulp is coming out but not a drop of juice. I don't see mechanically how wheatgrass can be juiced by this machine, as the auger seems to sweep it right past the screen. I purchased this product specifically to juice wheatgrass, so any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Julie

Re: wheatgrass juicing problems

Hi, I have an Omega juicer, and I've never had this happen. I recommend that you double check to see if you have the right parts attached. It comes with two inserts, one with a small metal screen on the bottom, the other has no screen, it is solid. The solid one is for crushing and proccessing food. The one with the screen is used for juicing. Make sure you have the correct one installed. If that is not the problem, I think perhaps the grass is too dry? Maybe there isn't enough moisture in it to extract much. I really can't say, though. Try juicing something else, like carrots, and see if you can get some juice there. If all else fails, contact Omega at their website. They have terrific customer service. I've tested it already with a warranty replacement.

My juice is coming out with the pulp. The machine seems to be operating and sounding normal and this has never happened before. I have the omega 8005 model??

This usually is indication of pulp backing up in the machine make sure you are pre cutting the produce and also make sure the tensioner on the end is adjusted according tot he produce being used. Example: softer produce requires less tension where as leafy green vegetables you can increase the tensioner.

No problem. question: can you juice wheat grass with the breville juicer?

Not really. You'll get wet pulp and a big mess to clean, not to mention the waste of your expensive products. Here's why-

I have an Omega Juicer Model 1000. When I try to juice citrul fruit. The jicer may only turn for a second or two than stops. When I push down on the citrus it oftentimes will not operate.

If you're talking about the citrus attachment, there may be a
problem with the gearing inside. I have one for my Acme
which I don't use because of it's awkwardness and juice
splattering characteristics. Better off with an inexpensive
citrus juicer and leave the Omega to its carrots and apples.

I was putting re-juicing a clump of wheatgrass and the omega juicer stopped. Now I can't unscrew the front piece off to get the wad of wheatgrass out. Help! I tried to run it under hot water.

I soaked it in hot water and it loosened enough to unscrew the outer portion and also moistened the stuck wheatgrass enough to pull it out. whew.

Omega 8005 juicer will not start

flip it over and hit the reset button, if there is one. If not, then make sure that it is put together properly, mine will do the same thing if the pulp collector is on wrong. or if you overheat it, then let it set and try to reset it.... hope that helps.

Wet pulp

There are two almost identical cone-shaped parts, one with metal screening and one solid dark plastic (I'm going by the parts color appearance of my 8003 model). Be sure you're using the one with the screen, otherwise the juice has nowhere to go but out with the pulp.
