Don't take the screws out! That plate is not meant to come off.
The filter unit is removed from the base by unscrewing it counterclockwise using the two holes in the plate that you unscrewed. The juicer originally came with a plastic tool with two prongs that fit in the holes and acted like a sort of handle you could use to unscrew the assembly.
If you don't have the tool, you can use two small screw drivers or jury-rig a tool out of a piece of coat hanger shaped into a U to gain leverage to dismount the entire filter/blade assembly for washing.
The basket may have cut into the hex shape top of the spindle creating little grooves which the basket locks into. If that's the case you have to replace the part, it's called the impeller. If you can purchase one from Omega, use a needle nose pliers to remove the flat hold down washer/nut on top of the motor spindle, pull off the old impeller and push on the new. Line it up correctly it only installs in one position. The impeller is the flat rotating part that the basket sits on. I did it on my Acme but had to push a little for them to sell me one.
Most juicers have a retention rod or side snaps that hold the top of the juicer in place. By loosening these, it will allow you to get underneath the juicer cap top. Once you have done this, you will have to remove the juice/ pulp wheel blade. Your juicer should have come with a two pin tool that facilitates this. Use the tool to loosen the juice /pulp wheel blade. Once you have done this, you should be able to remove the outer juice capture rim with that has the spout on one end. I hope this helps. Good luck and happy juicing.
Make sure the Juicer is unpluged. What you need is the cresent tool or two metal objects to place in the two holes opposite each other and press down the metal objects in the holes while turning counter clockwise. It kind of acts like a lock and key system.
There's a button with a speaker with a cross through it on the dash to the right of the steering wheel.Should be the furthest button to the left.Turn yr ignition on and within 10 seconds press and hold this button till the indicator lights flash on the dash.Problem fixed.
After about a half hour I finally figured it out. I'll go through all the steps.
1. Remove pusher from chute.
2. Pull the locking bar down over the spout.
3. Remove lid.
4. This part is tricky. Stick the orange crescent tool into the blade holes and while holding the filter basket steady with one hand, turn the blade couterclockwise while pulling up.You do have put a little muscle into it. And remember, if you don't hold the filter steady, the whole damn thing just spins.
5. Remove the receptacle.
Good juicer, but it seems unnecessarily complicated.
Getting the old one out is the hardest part if the arm was broken off like mine. First locate the rectangular part where the arm attaches to the case. If the old arm, or most of it, is still attached, grasp it and pull firmly away from the case until you hear a click. Then, still pulling it away from the case, push it up toward the top of the case until it slides out. If the arm is broken off you have to pry it from the top until you hear the click. I used a small paring knife. Once you get it this far, wedge something like a toothpick behind it to keep it pulled away from the case. Then you need to push this push this part up. It is pretty tight so you might want to use some type of tool, like the blade of a flat screwdriver. Once you get the old one out, putting the new on in is just the reverse of taking the old one out.
i had the same problem and figured out an easy way to open it without the tool. DO NOT take out the screws. I simply used chop sticks. I put one in each small hole and held the chop sticks in an X and turned the top counterclockwise!
