How to remove grater/on sunbeam pure juice machine

I have purchased a rectangular shaped second hand sunbeam pure juice machine that has no instructions. It appears that the stainless steel grater should come off for cleaning but am unable to get it off and do not wish to force it incase it is not meant to be removed. I would not like for it to break. Are they are screw on, pull off or does it permanently stay on. If so is there an easy way to clean the bowl

You have to lift off the juice collector (the black part around the grater)-you have to use a little force-then you'll be able to take out the grater.

I need to remove the parts for washing How I do this?

Things You'll Need:
  • Soft-bristled brush
  • Stiff-bristled brush
  • Dishwasher (optional)
  • Mild detergent
  • Lint-free microfiber cloths
  1. Unplug your Acme 6001 Juicer. Carry it to a countertop near your kitchen sink.

  2. Remove the pusher and cover, and set the pieces in a sink. Unscrew the clutch, remove it and set it in the sink. Remove the cutter blade, strainer basket and juice bowl, and place the pieces in the sink.
  3. Discard or remove and store any pulp that you find in the strainer basket. When you're finished, rinse the remaining fruit and vegetable pulp and juice from the pieces under cool, running water. Dislodge hard-to-remove pulp from the cutter blade and strainer basket with a soft-bristled brush or with a stiff-bristled brush if necessary.
  4. Wash the pieces in a dishwasher or by hand. To wash in a dishwasher, place the stainless steel pieces in the lower rack and the plastic in the top rack and wash on a normal cycle with other kitchenware. To wash by hand, fill the sink with warm water and a few drops of mild detergent and wash with a lint-free microfiber cloth.
  5. Run the pieces through the rinse cycle in your dishwasher or rinse under running tap water by hand. Air or wipe dry the pieces.

  6. Wipe the base with a slightly soapy cloth. Rinse with a damp cloth and wipe dry. Reassemble your juicer by returning the pieces to the base in reverse order.

When I disassemble for cleanup, the basket is very difficult to get out of the bucket part. Any tips?

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.

When juicing apples, does the skin need to be taken off first?

Hi - I'm not familar with the brand of juicer - but normally you do not have to take the skins off- are the apples fresh?- if the apples are old and flowery you will not get much in the way of juice

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....

How to clean the Jack LaLane Juicer?

the blade can be removed possibly with your hands, if you can manage to turn it, if not then find something that will fit into those little holes of the blade to turn it, and then take it apart, but remember in what order. to put it together: the grey thing with the spout attached goes on first, then the orange basket, then the blade, but don't turn it too tight, just look for the indicator marks and line them up with the arrows, then the black lid, and then the pulp basket.make sure that the black lid in the back, goes INTO the pulp collector, it is not very far, but if it is not done like this, then your machine will not work. then you raise and lock the bar into place and put the pusher into the feeding tube. hope that helps.

Cleaning my juicer

Generally you will have good luck with this item - however after using it for a while here is the problem people are stating in other reviews. You cannot get the basket our for cleaning. Unfortunately there are no instructions or troubleshooting or anything on the manufacturer's website for fixing this..

Here's the problem...There are 3 little captured balls on the basket that engage into holes into the juicer to hold it into place when you load it. The problem is that over time - the balls get juice in them. Then you store the thing with the basket locked into the juicer. Then from sitting in your cupboard - the juice dries and the balls are stuck. When they get very sticky they do not float in their cavity they are stuck. Then after you juice the next time - you cannot get basket off. basket is stuck and you will destroy the juicer if you try to pry it out with excessive force.
If you have this problem and you are lucky enough to be reading this - I have figured out the fix on my own...

You need to fill up a large tupperware, rubbermaid, whatever - bowl about 3 inches deep with hot water. Then take the juicer with the clear cover off and flip it upside down and into the hot water. Make sure the water is covering the entire basket area, but not so deep it goes into the motor area. I let it soak for about 3 hours, but I don't think you will need to do it for that long. When I took it out of the water I was able to pry the basket out with very little force. This is when I discovered this flawed design with the balls. Now I rinse the little ball bearings really good after using and dont store it connected. Then before connecting the basket to the juicer rinse the little bearings and push them in to make sure they are freed up before each use.

I used it probably for a year or so about 40 or 50 times without this issue, but let it sit for about 4 months - which is why I believe it caused these balls with juice in them to get so frozen I couldn't remove it.

Good luck. It worked for me.. this should work for you!

Wet pulp

There are two almost identical cone-shaped parts, one with metal screening and one solid dark plastic (I'm going by the parts color appearance of my 8003 model). Be sure you're using the one with the screen, otherwise the juice has nowhere to go but out with the pulp.
