Cleaning a Mesh Filter on my Juicer

I can't get the mesh filter clean. The vegetables I juice have the small holes 95% plugged up and soaking in lemon water doesn't help. One site suggests chlorine bleach, but the manual says no. What do I do? It's a Breville JE95 juicer.

    Soaking the mesh strainer in vinegar overnight for several nights and vigorous scrubbing with a soft brush seems to have handled the problem. Thanks.

    If the black plastic doesn't rotate, it needs a lot more muscle power. Hold the motor assembly with your left hand and pull on the nozzle with your right. Or get a strong friend to hold the motor, while you use two hands with the black plastic ring, which does rotate clockwise, one on the nozzle area, and the other 180 degress opposite.

The stiff brush that came with mine has worked well for me. Have you tried a fingernail brush or maybe some canned air?

I lost my manual and it's been awhile since I've used my juicer...
I used it today and now I am really needing to clean it and cannot figure out how to take the filter and the black plastic filter holder, off..... It says on the machine to use the nozzle and rotate it to the left.... it does not rotate, I feel like it's going to snap and break... I used this for a year, every single day and just cannot remember this kind of important part of the disassembly.... Please help me!!!!!

As far as cleaning the basket, I would soak it in very hot soapy water for about 1/2 an hour before using the brush and had very few problems with food sticking.

I cannot get the mesh basket off it is stuck fast

If you can, soak the mesh basket in some hot water, boiling if possible. Many times this will break up residue

HOw do i clean it?

flip down the lever to pull it all apart.

rinse out the lid, food pusher and base(that the mesh filter sits in).

scrub out the mesh filter with a dish brush or the included brush if you have it. be carefull the grater-like parts at the base are very sharp. make sure it's clean by holding it up to the light. if there are any particles left clinging to the mesh it will seriously interfere with the effectiveness of your juicing.

you can line the pulp collecting jug with a plastic bag so that you dont have to clean that out as well.

it's best to clean everything immediately. if for some reason you can't, at least rinse the plastic parts and leave the mesh basket to soak until you can get back to it.

if you have any dried food or staining on any of the parts then a soak in water with lemon juice in it (maybe the juice of 3 or 4 lemons) should help soften up particles and strip away stains.

hope this helps....

You need a new slicer with a finer mesh.

HOw do I get the metal filter off, I can't remember and I cannot find my book

The crescent tool has two protruding metal “nubs”. After you open the juicer so you can see the mesh basket that turns around, and a flat grating disc that has two holes that match those nubs. Insert the nubs into the holes and turn counter-clockwise to loosen the disc. (you’ll have to hold the plastic edge of the mesh basket so it doesn’t turn). Once it’s loose, keep turning it until it comes off. You can then remove the disc, the basket and part containing the spout to clean them. Just reverse the process to remount the parts, making sure not to overtighten the disc.

Breville JE90J juice fountain spare part

The coupling on the juicer basket end is no big problem, but the coupling on the motor end is a big problem as you need to stop the motor from rotating to unscrew the coupling. This means remiving the base of the juicer which may be difficult because of the type of screws involved.

If you email me at I can help you with prices etc.

Yes.  There should be an orange handle-looking accessory with to small metal rods sticking out that is made to clik into the wire mesh screen and unlock it be twisting the screen mechanism slightly so you can unscrew it out.  
See the enclose photos of the tool.
Hope this helps...

Need a new mesh filter for Jack Lalanne Power Juicer

On their website there is a manual and at the end of the manual there is a number you can call for a replacement. I believe you get the crescent tool, blade, and filter together for around $25.
