Question about Acme 6001 Juice Extractor

Open Question

Is it worth fixing a cracked Speed Nut and Impeller

After about 3 months of use, the juicer began to vibrate - something so many owners of this model have experienced. Then one day, trying to hold onto the juicer while it was jumping across the counter, it cut my finger to the bone. I am ready to throw it away, but given the price and low usage, I am undecided. Warranty is out - I bought it some years ago and just never used it until recently. My question: is it worth fixing given how famously bad this brand is? What would it cost roughly? Thanks!

SOURCE: acme juicer vibrating so much.

I've had one for 21 years and when I replaced the blade the same thing happened.
The blade is not supposed to be held firmly in place so it can slip intentionally to
minimize vibration. If you bought the juicer new, think back, and I believe you will
remember the vibration problem. I seems with a worn blade they vibrate less. The
motor is very durable and uses roller bearings like on a skate board. I went back
to the old blade, which I sharpen with a drill using a small bit.

Philips Avance Juicer 1871 has just completely stopped while juicing lemons - its been cleaned and nothing is stuck, what should I do? Its only 3 months old.


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!

I have an acme juicerator 6001 model and I was just juicing... i put vegetables in before it was quite warmed up and it looks like something happened to the motor. Is there a way to fix this?


You may have tripped the reset button on the bottom of the juicer, just push
it back in. They really don't have to warm up, just give it a few seconds to reach
speed.

Motor runs and is seem like it has a clutch that is slipping. Tried the re-set button. The re-set button does not seem to engage anything. Took the 4 screws off the bottom but do not see anything that...


The white impeller that you attached the basket and blade to is
keyed to the motor shaft. There is a small shallow nut that you
can remove with a needle nose pliers and pull the impeller off
the shaft to see if it's seated properly or damaged. If damaged
talk Waring into selling you another at 1 800 492 7464.

My Omega 1000 is 10 yrs old, but I've only been using it regularly for 1 yr and 3 months. Putting a carrot through isn't stabilizing it anymore. It takes off when the screen is 1/2 full. But the weirdest...


Yes the blade is hitting it when the juicer vibrates
severely. I have an Acme, 21 years old, and found
very difficult to control vibration especially with a
new shredder blade. If you are handy this is what
to do. Order a new cover from omega, cover design
has changed so you will need the plunger also. This
may sound incorrect, but you will have to use a small
file to file down the cutting burrs on the blade a fraction
of an inch. Then with the juicer fully assembled, unlock
the set screw on the center of the bottom and turn it
clockwise until the chute contacts the blade then back
it off a half turn. Now the chute to blade gap is set
correctly. In filing down the burrs you make the blade
a little duller but you also narrow the gap and feed
the produce through more slowly and evenly. This
comes from 21 years of using this machine. With
a new blade I could not control the vibration no matter
how I fed the thing. If this sounds a bit too much get
rid of the Omega and try the pulp ejecting type. The
Miracle MJ1000 is a nice little juicer for about $130.

When we juice, it turns and moves across the counter


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.

Need instructions on how to use the Acme 6001 Juicerator.


Call Waring at 1800 492 7464, they may be able to help you out. There is not
a whole lot involved here. Place the juice bowl on the base first, then the basket,
blade, secure with the clutch nut and rotate the cover to lock it in place. Watch
out they vibrate, so juice hard produce evenly and slowly.

Who might sharpen the shredder blade???


This is a good one because a worn blade
actually causes less vibration. You can
sharpen the blade using a drill. Use a drill
bit about the same width as the cutting burrs
and drill into the face of each one ever so
slightly, almost perpendicularly. Assemble
the juicer and unlock the adjust screw on
the center of the bottom. Turn it clockwise
until the blade contacts the chute, then back
it off a half turn. Don't forget to tighten the
lock nut. I've been using the same blade
for years.
