I have hadthe same problem. I think it has to do with wearing on the rubber "feet" and some imbalance. I solved this problem for myself by just setting it on some "grippy" rubber. I used a silicone baking sheet on the counter and set the juicer on there. Result: No more juicer-dancing across the countertop.

Take bottom off juicer. The 4th screw is an "odd" one...I drilled the center out and used a flat head.
When you look up inside the juicer, you will see a silver lever arm. It touches the arm lock mechanism (so the juicer will only run when the arm is engaged).
The lever arm should be behind the black lever arm part on the side. When I opened mine up, the silver level arm was on top of the black post thingy. I took a screwdriver and pushed it off the black post thingy, so it the very bottom of the silver lever is behind it. (I can no longer see the entire silver lever easily when it is in the correct position.)
Totally fixed it.
I think it bounced out of the correct spot when I juiced some hard veggies or when I moved it, it hit the counter pretty hard.
Anyway, good luck....I am not a mechanic so sorry if the language is non-technical.
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.
Both the Omega and Acme juicers vibrate no matter what you do. I found a worn shredder blade actually produces less vibration. However this involves filing the cutting burrs down and resetting the blade to chute gap. If you're up to it, take the blade out and file each row of burrs about halfway down. Then with the juicer fully assembled, unlock the set screw on the center of the bottom, turn it clockwise until the chute contacts the blade, and back it off a half turn. The set screw actually raises and lowers the motor spindle. Both companies would not agree with this, but this solution comes from operating my 21 year old Acme. I recently replaced the blade and the juicer immediately began tap dancing. Went back to the old blade.
mcdevit75 here, There should be a rather thin Shiny silver bar that goes across the entire cover wher you put the fruit, vegatables in for juiceing, move that bar out of the way, either pull towards you or away while holding down the cover this is will allow the cover to lift off and expaose the filter for cleaning.
Hello, First, make sure the screw on clamp that holds the blade down is centering the blade correctly. Also make sure it tightens down firmly against the blade. Wiggle the blade to ensure it is mounted securely. If this doesn' fix it try your old blade again. If your old blade works you may have a bad, unbalance blade but I would suspect he screw on clamp knob may be somewhat worn and not securing the blade causing it to run "out of round" when a piece of vegetable pushes on it. If everything looks good with both blades and the blade securing knob it could be a worn bearing on the juicer. Try wiggling the motor shaft and see if there is any play in it. I have an ACME 6001 that is quite old so I wouldn't suspect the bearings are going. One other thing, does the bowl take 3 to 5 minutes to stop spinning when you shut off the motor? If it does then the shaft and bearing are probalby ok
Take the top part of the juicer off so that just the shreder is visable. On top of the shreder are 2 small holes on either side of the blades. a handle devise with 2 pins came with the juicer. put the tool pins into the holes and twist counter clock wise. The blade will come off then rest is simple and the unit can be disassembled. If you have lost the tool disassembly will be more dificult but can still be accomplished using a cloth on top of the blades and twiting counter clock wise. Careful though or you will cut yourself
