Most likely there is some dirt or a label between the blade and the shoulder on the arbor preventing the blade from being perpendicular to the shaft. Or maybe there is a label on the blade causing it to be out of balance. Or maybe the hole in the center of the blade is larger than the arbor, so it does not center itself (it should be a nice slip-fit.)

Ivibrates when i put it in gear


If it vibrates when blades are engaged then blade balance or belt alignment is a problem. If without blade but just moving, then a problem with the transmission. Warranty? follow that path.

Vibrating 38" deck on MTD yardman mower


Hi, first replace the blade spindle bearings, if you had to hit them to free them up the bearings are shot. Secondly, replace the deck belt. Because you engaged the blades with a siezed bearing the belt will have a worn section where the v will be thinner thus causing the vibration as it passes through the pulleys. Regards Phil.

I bought a used Acme Juicer 6001 and when it starts working it's ok, but after 1 or 2 minutes, it starts vibrating and goes like crazy. I only put shopped vegetables, like cucumbers, apples, celery, and...


Just the opposite. The only way I get by the vibration is with an old worn blade which
I sharpen with a drill using a small bit. Installed a new blade, once, and the juicer took
off on me. Even the pro's have trouble with the vibration issue. If trouble persists, try
a pulp ejecting type.

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.

Excessive vibration and rattling when I have less than a cup of juice extracted.


I've had an Acme for 21 years and I don't care
what anyone tells you-they vibrate. After years
of trial and error I found mine vibrates less with
a worn blade that I sharpen with a drill. With
a new shredder blade you actually have to file
down the cutting burrs about one third and
adjust the blade to chute gap by unlocking
the adjusting screw on the center of the bottom,
turn it clockwise until blade contacts chute, and
back it off a half turn. Apparently with a slightly
duller blade, smaller gap, the produce goes through
more slowly and evenly. Also severe vibration will
cause the blade to jump up and chip the chute.

Motor vibrates the entire mower, new motor pulley; belt and deck pulley replaced by serviceman. Continues to vibrate. Craftsman YTS 3000


Doesa the vibration happen when the cutting blades are engaged or do you still have vibration when blades are not turning? IF BLADES ARE TURNING AND YOU HAVE VIBRATION, YOU NEED NEW BLADES OR THEY GOT BENT FROM HITTING SOMETHING HARD AND NEED TO BE STRAIGHTENED OR REPLACED. If vibe is there when blades are still, possibly the output (crankshaft) is bent. Goodluck, Macgivor

Electric lawnmower


Need to check blade and replace.Blade is out of balance causeing vibration. If you continue to use cener shaft bearing will also wear out and cause vibration. Buy new blade and if vibration is still there return blade.Mower is not worth bearing replacement. Buy new mower.

Please take time to rate .Thanks
