Re: how do u wash this?

Okay...Here goes: I figured out that there must have been a "keyway" tool of some sorts, so I used a knife instead...I have a j6-6 model (salton) and on the rear oif the machine just below the upper pulp catcher section, there is an "opening" of sorts. take a steak knife and insert this into the opening..(UNPLUG THE MACHINE FIRST!!!)..grasp the stainless steel strainer and while twisting the knife in order to apply pressure and "jam" the drive shaft underneath , twist the strainer basket counter clockwise...It will release and the rest is easy...Hope this helps..ChristianMagician in Diamondhead

You have to unscrew the metal blade. See the three screws which connect the grater? Unscrew those. I know, it's a terrible design. Very unpractical. So once you unscrew the metal grater, you can twist off the top plastic part of the machine. The top part I'm referring to shoots out the pulp. That whole thing twists off. Then you can clean your juicer. It's a **** design. It's amazing that this is Juiceman 2. Just imagine how crappy Juiceman 1 is...

If you have a jack lalanne it comes with an orange handle that fits into the sharp cutter and you twist it to tighten/loosen the blade. hope this helps

I am taking my juicer apart. I took the three screws out and the grinder plate. How do I get the filter out that is beneath the grinder plate.

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.

Hope this helps!

I was putting re-juicing a clump of wheatgrass and the omega juicer stopped. Now I can't unscrew the front piece off to get the wad of wheatgrass out. Help! I tried to run it under hot water.

I soaked it in hot water and it loosened enough to unscrew the outer portion and also moistened the stuck wheatgrass enough to pull it out. whew.

Do not know how to remove basket

(1) Remove the food plunger and top cover; (2) unscrew the 3 screws from the blade/cutter plate and lift it off its base; (3) Unscrew the plastic base COUNTERWISE and lift it off of the center spindle; (4) Now you can remove the basket and juice bowl for cleaning.

To reassemble, reverse the process.

I do not know how to clean and take it apart

I did some research here on Fixya and this is what another expert had to say.........pull the metal bar forward and down to open up into the blade compartment. your juicer should have come with a handle type key wrench thing that you stick on top of the blades into holes to unscrew blade holder, while unscrewing that hold the blade still.
Hope this helps wishes.

I bought the juicer at a second-hand store in brand new condition however the crescent tool was missing. To remove the flat blade for cleaning, I use a pair of scissors spread far enough to fit the ends in both holes. Hold the basket still while turning the scissors counter-clockwise untill the flat blade detaches. Easy as that! I ordered the tool, but it hasn't arrived yet. Hope this helps!

I seem to be able to put the crescent too in but the blade just spins and doesn't seem to be connecting to anything to pull it out. Talk about frustration!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
