Push the reset button underneath - this worked with mine when the same happened to me; I only realised it was there after changing the fuse, which didn't fix it. I turned it over and found the button and voila!
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.
do you have user's manual with wiring diagram? if not try H.B. If you get one, there is a diode that keeps your machine from frying from over-voltage. Kinda like a fuse, but is not a fuse. If you can check voltage across it, it is not the diode. That is a simple start and the most common problem for not starting.
Championjuicer.com sells replacement switches. Order the oil seal and o-ring too to save on shipping. Newer models have a safety cut off that does not allow the juicer to turn on unless all parts are properly positioned.
Try the juicer on another circuit to see if the breaker failed altogether on the circuit you were using. It's possible that the machine is drawing more power than it should and may need to be checked by an appliance service dealer. An electrician can also check the power draw at the breaker to see if it is being overloaded. If the machine itself is defective, it should receive professional service. Good luck!
Regarding Jack Lalanne juicer. After making sure nothing clogs the blades., make sure the stainless bar is on the correct slots on top of the juicer, left and right. It has a safety switch that when its not closed properly, it won't run.
Bought an open box Waring JEX 328 from Linens and Things (going out of business so need to return quick if it is defective) and plugged it in and nothing happened! So now trying to figure out if all pieces are in their correct place. There are two small plastic pieces that seem to go together a smaller angled black piece and a long light plastic piece. Any thoughts? Is there an auto kill switch on these if something is not assembled right?
There is a little knob on pulp collector that pushes in a switch, probably to assure the unit is assembled before operation. Mine broke off. I opened bottom of unit and used electrical tape to permanently engage the switch. The Juicer now works. I consider it poor construction that such an important part of the operation of the unit is able to break off and poor customer relations that there is no help for this on their web site. I have used it only a handful of times and the unit has mostly been in storage and has not been abused.
Hi I had the same problem yesterday and emailed Champion Juicer about the problem here's their reply below, his suggestion worked.
Your machine is equipped with a magnetic start system which will only allow
the machine to start when you have the screenholder all the way in place
just as you would have it to start juicing. If you do not have any parts on
the machine it will not start. Please assemble it again and give it a try.
If it still wont start call me at 209-369-2154 for further assistance.
